A second NHL team in Toronto?

God damn it!!! When will these morons learn?

The league will never allow Mr. Balsillie to put a team in Hamilton for two reasons, according to one governor. One is that the city would be a tough sell for U.S.-based teams, and the other, more significant reason, is the belief it would ruin the Buffalo Sabres.

“It’s a minor-league town,” the governor said of Hamilton. “How could we sell a team from Hamilton? Do you think the New York Rangers want to put the Hamilton Steelers on their marquee at Madison Square Garden? Do you think anyone in Manhattan would buy tickets to see them?”

How I feel about Flickr

digital inspiration has posted a nice guide to cool tools available for flickr using a handy Q and A format. For example:

Q: I need pictures from Flickr for my school project that look like a sad or angry smiley face.

A: Go to Retrievr, draw a sketch of the smiley face and this tool will try to retrieve pictures that match your sketch. Could be a great option for searching pictures that cannot be described in words.

Top Ten Worst Halloween ‘Candies’

Even though I live right across from my daughter’s school I still only get less than a dozen trick or treaters each year. Even so I’m glad that we care enough not to give away any of the items on this list although we do give out packets of President’s Choice Extra Creamy Hot Chocolate. It’s still chocolate, right?
