Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Had to go buy some blank CDs today. The only way I could get the price almost down to 1 USD per disc was by buying 25 of them... making safety copies is serious business

I bought a couple of these



They are called Little Travellers and are made by HIV/AIDS patients in South Africa and for many of them it is their only source of income. No two of these little dolls are the same I won't know what mine look like until they arrive. They cost $5 each.

24's final season on DVD. They really went cheap on this release...2 short featurettes on designing CTU and another on using CGI and greenscreens to make Los Angeles look like New York City, a paltry number of deleted scenes and some short bits on filming certain scenes. And no freaking commentaries..the last three seasons had 12 commentaries each. Argh...my favorite special features not included. Lame Fox...really lame!

Those are adorable, and for a good cause. How big (or, rather, how little) are they?

ETA Never mind the question; I just noticed the safety pins. Doh.

Here is a video about the Little Travellers



I did say that they were all made by women who have HIV/AIDS. That is not completely true as they are made by women 'living with HIV/AIDS' and that includes women who are raising grandchildren orphaned by AIDS and women who are caring for HIV/AIDS infected family members.

Bought a motherboard for my IBM Thinkpad project I'm working on. Parts from T40, T41, T42, T43 and a slaughtered HP laptop. FRANKENSTEIN LIVES!

^Why shouldn't the Mexicans be able to make good coffee I thought the first time I tried these beans -up until that point the Kenyan beans were my 'good beans'; these days they're my everyday beans
