My dad moved here to find work back in the 80s. Work around here is still good and moving hasn't been a priority.

One day I'd like to be in a milder climate though.

right now I use a microsoft sculpt ergo, which i like fairly well. But I am trying to build a erogdox - sadly I got Cherry MX Browns before realizing that I really prefer Clears, which are either sold out or listing for twice what I expect to pay for switches.

I'm also still hopeful for the King Assembly Kickstarter.

Cool stuff! too bad about the narration though

This is the very reason I'm giving Bing a try. I think I like Google better for most things, but I don't really want to live in a world with ONE right answer to every question. Variation in the spice of life.

It feels like we're so consumed with leisure, that we are either unable or unwilling to find "purpose". It's really everything Huxley feared we could become.

Interesting perspective (and one I can agree with), but I wonder if he would feel the same way today with such a large population who have fallen into a state of arrested development. It seems that there is no end to people amongst my peers (mid/late 30s) that not only never put away their childish things, but also never took up "adultish" things. For instance - those that spend more time of video games than providing for their families. People more interested in Facebook gossip than their country being at war.

Enjoying "childish" things is perfectly fine and even healthy, as long as we are adult enough to keep them at the proper priority level in our lives.
