Well, while visiting a site that shall not be named but that I visit from time to time, I discovered that all of the Ultimate Electronics stores in Texas are going teats' up. Knowing that gift cards would be kaput once the store goes into liquidation, I steeled myself for another visit.
It was a much more pleasant experience this time, mainly because the salespeople were more interested in updating their resumes over stalking customers. I ended up getting $5 off a DVD of The Music Man, which Maggie should enjoy.
The reason I say this is that Shelly asked when they're liquidating. They said that our local store is going to cease being an Ultimate Electronics on 4/9, which is presumably when the liquidators are going to take over the store and start discounting everything.
Might be a good time to grab one of those classy Tivoli radios to replace the flaky radio I've got.
Oh, and I got a pleasant surprise a couple of days ago. While moving software to my new machine, I discovered that the new Macromedia FlashPaper 2 not only converts printed documents to Flash, but also to PDF. It's not as capable as the full Acrobat suite, but it's enough for my needs. There are cheaper print-to-PDF solutions nowadays, but FlashPaper's still a good deal if you want to print to PDF or Flash.
