I think it would be cool if I could rent a car for a few hours, rather than an entire day – just for fun. On the other hand, in Austin, I'd have to drive to the eMotion rental location!

Subscription cars?. I came across this site while reading Clark Howard's show notes. It seems eMotion Mobility is planning on a fairly large rollout of electric cars in Atlanta, California and the rest of the United States. [kuro5hin.org]

Helen Hayes. “Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up. That he has to leave the nest, the security, and go out to do battle. He has to lose everything that is lovely and fight for a new loveliness of his own making, and it's a tragedy. A lot of people don't have the courage to do it.” [Motivational Quotes of the Day] [dws.]

I happened to be at Fry's today and I picked up the Pyro Firewire casing – $99.

I can't tell you how AMAZING this is. I had a 60 Gig drive that I wanted to use as shared storage. I opened the case, removed a few screws, plugged in the drive, screwed things down, and plugged it in. OS X identified it immediately, asked to format it, and it was mounted on my desktop in under a minute.

WOW – I feel so free!! It's amazing what a few dozen gigs of space will do for your 'e'-spirit.
