Running out the door for an oil change today I noticed a little box wedged in the doorway, brought via our friends at UPS. Addressed to me from "Young America Corporation," my first thought was, "Hmm, I haven't ordered anything in weeks." The second thought, coming from the optimist in me, was "this is the perfect size for an iPod mini."

So I tear it open, and it's a 6 GB iPod mini. The hell?

And to think, not one of those seven to ten bottle caps I submitted was paid for by yours truly. Thanks, generous co-workers! Now we can see who at work wants to buy this off of me; my 1 GB Shuffle is good enough.

The funny thing is they didn't even send me an email or letter saying that I won. Total surprise.

I have Netscape 7.1 myself ... No real complaints, and it sure seems to me (from the brief experiences I've had with it) that version 8.0 and up aren't worth the upgrade because of the little nuisances.
