Gir!

My first post via e-mail!


OK, let's see if this thing works. I'm not sure that the HTML
formatting will come through or not, but this is just a test anyway.



And take note, jbriggs and scout1222 - at least
you can post from work, even if you can't read it. It's
something, right?



Um, other than that, I got nothin'.

Brain... melting...

Is this day over yet? GAH!

Totally revamped my resume, and damn I'm presentable! Let's hope the
places I've submitted it to think the same.

Q went to the dentist today and got prosthetic teeth and has his smile
back and is all cute and stuff. Tonight we go get our hair cut. WE ARE
TEH KYOOT. F34R US.

Did I mention I like posting via e-mail?

Not *too* suspicious...


OK, my fellow eBayers, what do you think of this? I bid on a somewhat hard-to-find item, and am the highest bidder. I check in before the auction ends, and I notice that earlier another buyer - one with zero feedback and who created an account that same day - has put in multiple bids but did not manage to outbid me. All is well, but it makes me go, "Hmmm..." Then, at the last minute, I am sniped and outbid by another buyer - this one with 1 feedback, even though the account was created in 2003. So, I lose the auction, but those, to me, are two red flags of shill bidding. I reported the seller and will be curious to see what happens.

Anyone else ever have to deal with this?
