In the past week or so, a court has convicted serial divorcee and file sharer Jammie Thomas (who recently remarried again for the third time, making her Thomas-Rasset) of illegally disseminating a few songs, and will make her pay a $1.92 million...

Music CD value: $222,000 vs $0.10
FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 2009
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
I got the shock of a lifetime when cleaning out my CD collection: I sold about half of it to pay for an MP3 player. I found out that used CDs are worth absolutely nothing. A few of my CDs were worth more than a dollar, but most were worth $0.10. I...

GM Bankruptcy: Good riddance! Hooray!
TUESDAY, JUNE 02, 2009
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
As a former Buick owner, I am happy that GM is bankrupt, and hope this is the last we ever see of them. Earlier this decade, I got a new Buick, wanting a better, more reliable car than I had been able to afford ever since my college days when I'd...

Lowes: No Klein Tools!
SATURDAY, MAY 30, 2009

I don't often get to Lowes in the winter, and don't know when this happened, but I noticed recently my Lowes store has stopped carrying Klein electrical tools. These tools, made in the USA, are the finest and are used by professionals. I don't use...

The Screwdriver Screw-up
SATURDAY, MAY 30, 2009
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
As I reported in another blog entry, after (at least) seven months, Sears restocked their screwdrivers. If you've been to Sears, you know what I mean: the precision screwdrivers with the black plastic handle and swivel top (blue=phillips,...

Charter phone harassment
THURSDAY, MAY 21, 2009
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
3 user comments
I am being harassed by Charter 410-774-8191. They call me almost every day. They never leave a message. It's just a robodialer which rings my number and hangs up. The amount of these calls is ridiculous. I understand that the do-not-call list has...

SEARS: Restocked screwdrivers after 7+ months!
MONDAY, MAY 18, 2009
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Over the weekend, I noticed that Sears had restocked its screwdrivers after SEVEN MONTHS. (Or more. I remember looking for these in October, 2008. I think I may have even looked in September.) Does this mean the recession is over?

Ursula LeGuin: "...who do these people think they are? Why do they think they can violate my copyright and get away with it?" You feel violated, so here is an explanation: If the readers are anything like me, your books are part of their lives....

Charter upsell calls are harassment
WEDNESDAY, MAY 13, 2009
Posted by: Scott McMahan | more..
Why does Charter harass its customers with telephone calls? They never leave a message, they just call over and over with an autodialer (robocaller). If they have to upsell me on their bundle (which I do not want), why can't they call once a month...
