I'm Such a Geek: StarWars: In Concert (in Toronto) - Rocked the House.

Show was pretty damn awesome.

A fellow StarWars geek friend of mine wanted to go, and we had to resort to scalper seats on craigslist as the WHOLE Air Canada Center was sold out.

But wow.  We had some of the best seats in the house.

The music was awesome.

The visual/video college was amazing -- esp. on the ultra high res/high contrast projector -- and we were right in front of it, right in the middle.  

Just awesome.  Almost worth the ludacrous amount that we ended up paying (mind you, it was still probably less than the really great tix for a Basketball game) 

But hell, you only live once:  Work hard.  Geek harder!

Damn I Love Posterous

If you guys haven't checked out Posterous, you should.

It makes blogging so easy.

I can see myself blogging daily now, or at least a lot more often.

Its reminds me of BubbleShare -- Focusing on simplifying something that used to be a pain in the ass.  Clever use of email.  Etc.

Love it.

United Airlines: You Impress Me - $250 Coupon Back for a 60 Min Short Delay!

(Update: To be clear, this was not a normal pre-boarding delay, but a delay that was due to a malfunctioning gear on the plane that forced us to land, but it was a short stop and they were able to get us back in the air within 60 mins)

On behalf of United Airlines, please accept my apologies for the delay and inconvenience you experienced on Flight 854.

I know that in choosing air travel you do so with time constraints in mind, and I am truly sorry if we did not provide the level of service that you expect or deserve from United. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we made preparations to get you safely on your way.

Let me assure you that we are thoroughly evaluating our recovery efforts in order to improve coordination of services for our customers on future flights.
