When is someone going to do something about the veiled monopoly on Internet service providers?  In 3 years, the price of FIOS 15/5 Internet has gone from $50/mo, to $60, to now $70.  Whatever little competition there is, it's not working.  It's a utility monopoly with a conflict of interest with respect to cable TV.  There is no Internet provider who isn't a cable provider first, thus there is no downward pressure on prices.

I think there is (or was) a law about this.  I remember back when I had earthlink, I was able to keep them as my ISP even though I had roadrunner (time warner).  A couple years ago they started charging though and my dad dumped them.

I cut my finger on my Wüsthof :( I was being careless though, brussels sprouts are annoying. It was so quick there wasn't even blood on the blade

Went a different direction with the concert web site this year -- single scrolling page.  I think it works well with the full-page background images.  Flexible grid as well.
The Highrock Christmas Concert is an annual choral concert at Highrock Church in Arlington. This year funds from the concert will benefit the Arlington Youth Counseling Center.
