I like the "how much have you spent online in the last year", and the highest range was "$1000 or more". I buy nearly everything I can on the internet. I didn't do the math but I'm pretty sure it easily comes out to several thousand a year. Not like I'm rolling in dough or anything, just that when you avoid stores that aren't the grocery store, you rack up a lot of online spending.

I can second the vouch for The Big Bang Theory. The geeky humor is surprisingly well done. They must have some true super-geeks on the writing staff. I almost didn't watch the show because I thought it was going to be a bunch of really bad and outdated "make fun of nerds" jokes. But it's more like a bunch of really good "laugh with the nerds" jokes that are very current.

Plus, there's a super hot blonde girl that is rarely appropriately dressed.

Funny, the writer's strike actually helped this show for me. If you'll recall, the show didn't start until January or February. By that time, nearly everything else had run out of new episodes. If there had been other stuff to watch I probably wouldn't have started watching this show.

I was a Nielson family in Feb. 2006. We didn't get any high-tech device, just a "diary". My wife and I blogged about it on our blog, here: http://www.vacant-nebula.com/blog/2006/2/11/were-...

I thought it might be JavaScript doing something funny, but the problem is still there in IE after disabling JS.

some thoughts: you're using the FF3 rounded border CSS rules, not sure how IE6 reacts when it hits a property it doesn't understand. Maybe you should try moving those CSS rules to the end of the blocks they're in. (i could be totally wrong on this). also, you're using <!-- html comments --> in your CSS, when you should use /* CSS comments */ instead. that could be messing up IE's CSS parser somehow.

Oh. something strange is happening. if i use "Edit CSS" in web developer toolbar in Firefox, something similar happens (but this time all the background is the lighter-gray #555 used for the page background). I know IE 6 has problems with CSS that has descendant selectors (i.e. ".post > abbr" or something), but i don't see any of those in your CSS.

Not sure why that happens but I think you can fix it by adding this to your CSS:
.post {
background: white;
}

So the guy with the Family Guy avatar is offended by satirical black face? :)

I haven't seen the movie yet, though I've heard much more controversy about use of the word "retard" than about the whole blackface thing.

Yeah, it's funny *because* it's not socially acceptable.

I thought this movie would be really bad, but I keep hearing that it is actually really funny.

This is pretty cool... it'd make a good gift for a geek too! You don't keep any rights to the avatar do you? Like, is the buyer free to modify the picture however they want, and put it on anything they want? Even if it is for commercial purposes? (I can't think of any commercial purpose now but I'm sure could be one...)
