A guy set up a service called spamnesty where you can forward a scam email and a bot will attempt to waste as much of the scammer’s time as possible, expressing interest in their scheme and asking for more info. Here’s one that I forwarded to it.
We tried coffee soda… not so much.
We went to Karibu Cafe this weekend. East African food. Vanessa and I liked it. The kids…not so much. (What else would you expect?) Anyway, we had tasty jerk chicken, a kind of clove flavored hummus, several kinds of stews, lentils, samosas, etc. I’d probably go back.
I was reading about palladium.
Me: “Palladium is a rare metal used mostly in catalytic converters.”
Vanessa: “What’s a catalytic converter for anyway?”
Me: “I’m not exactly sure.”
Vanessa: “Great…so when I go to the mechanic and they say they need to replace the catalytic converter, I can say, ‘I don’t know what that is, but did you know that catalytic converters use a rare metal called palladium?'”
I went to Nationwide Candy here in Albuquerque a little while back hoping to find a big ole box o’ chocolate covered coffee beans. It’s a warehouse-style candy store. Didn’t find any but they had choco rocks, candy legos, huge bags of Toxic Waste (whatever that is). In general, you need to call ahead to see if they have something.
I did later find the most cost effective chocolate coffee beans at Trader Joe’s.
I’ve been running Plex on a TS-251 NAS with my ripped DVDs for a little while and I like it. No more digging for the workout DVD to play it. Minecraft server running all the time. Handy.
