If technology doesn't seem like magic, it's probably obsolete

I'm finding less time to update my blog these days, but my flickr photostream is often updated.

Playing in my house right now...

Matt's Champagne

So, we decided to send Matt some Champagne to help him celebrate his marriage, and I agreed to organise it. Easy, right? America is online-land. Go to, select, pay and get the confirmation email. Well, yes, unless ... you're trying to send the wine to an address in Maryland (along with quite a few of the other 49 contiguous states; shipping to Japan is easier!)

To cut a long story short, BIG thanks are due to Eric Fullenbaum, and his parents who just so happen to live in Maryland. They personally purchased some fine Champagne and had it shipped over to Matt. As you can see, it arrived on time.


it was the very least we could do.

Hey, I'm glad to finally know who was behind the great Champagne airlift of '04. Thanks guys, Eric, and Eric's parents.
