Just got my settlement from the eBay class action litigation. Check for $0.12. I don't think I'll quit my day job just yet.

why are you bashing SSYS, and trying to burst a bubble.
I thought MF was supposed to help investors not create false bursting bubbles,,  I am unsubscribing!

Car crashes, barbed wire fences, the Manx missile, and a long-awaited victory. Great Tour de France this year, and congrats to Cadel Evans.

Laughing at all the Carmageddon stories. Unbelievable that I actually lived there for six months (and right in the closure area too!).

My sister drove down to San Diego to avoid it; went to a large parade: Gridlock! Oh the irony.

Thanks for the $3, Netflix. Streaming and Sony never really got along anyway.

Makes sense. We never have problems streaming through the Wii, and Jay's favorite late-night pasttime is watching the weirdest stuff he can find on streaming.

Software "upgrades" always make me feel like a curmudgeonly old man refusing to trade his slide rule for a calculator. Thanks, Sharepoint, for another great experience in document management. </sarcasm>

all too often software 'upgrades' are in reality just software changes, with not enough actual improvement to justify the cost

A (probably statistically invalid) look at social networks as a stresser: http://www.zdnet.com/blog/facebook/more-friends-equals-more-stress-on-facebook/193
Facebook might be causing you stress. Furthermore, the more friends you have on the service, the more stress you may be experiencing.

Huh. There go all the equally invalid stats about how great social networks are! ;-D

Initially I thought it might be a split between people who consider the social media presence part of their professional "brand" (part of your job) and those who just like to gab. People with a "job" element to deal with obviously have to fret about keeping the worlds separate, compliance issues, too many contacts, etc.

But looking at the raw numbers, these are not huge friends lists -- I mean, my mom is pushing 160 friends and we are not exactly aggressive FB self-promoters. It's not our job face.

I suspect there's an account scaling issue in terms of user age. People with 70 friends are going to be more casual users or newer to the network (younger). The older your account gets and the more active you are, the more contacts you accumulate and the more it pushes you past the pain threshold of making you nuts.
