This is the kind of question that can't go anywhere else, but is strictly for information. Think of it as a condensed thread for all manner of non-food related questions. A clearinghouse!

So:

Does anyone subscribe to Newsweek?

If so, PM me. I need a recent issue. Don't tell me to go the library, please.

THANKS.

My mother writes: "The picture in the magazine is of someone so like you that I had to stare at it. It is of you in your late teens or twenties. Please try to get a copy, or just try to look at a copy. It's remarkable."

It's on page 63.

If anyone wants to scan this and send it to me, please do. tanaATtanabutler.com

Fanx.

Must be a different issue. My latest copy has a picture of Michael Jackson either making devil horns or committing "air quotes" on that particular page. I assume that's not it?

You didn't know that “tanabutler” is really Michael Jackson?

January 24 issue, sorry. Doh! I think someone is going to mail me a copy, but if someone has a scanner, let me know.

Tana, it's on its way.

Here are two things I'd like to know.

When I was a very young child, my mom brought me a picture book from the library called Do Not Open.

It was about an old lady who became a beachcomber in her later years, and one day she found a bottle on the beach with a label on it that said DO NOT OPEN.

When she opened it, what came out was so supremely terrifying that I have blotted it from my memory. I just remember it was supremely terrifying. I couldn't even walk past the shelf in the library where it was held.

My mom knew that even at an early age I had a love for the macabre :(

I have never been able to find this book again. Has anyone seen it or heard of it?

Also, once I read a story about a beloved middle school teacher who showed her students a dead cat. It was a beautiful story, and I am pretty sure it is probably still in print, but I can't remember the title/author. Ring any bells?

If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities. (Voltaire)


One is often told that it is very wrong to attack religion because religion makes men virtuous. So I am told; I have not noticed it. (Bertrand Russell)

Believing there is no god gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-O, and all things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have. (Penn Jillette)

Okay, who here sees a missing strip of text from the inset box on this page?

http://kayswift.com/newsB.html

I can see everything fine in five of the six browsers I opened on my Mac (Safari is problematic), but people on a PC seem to have problems. Firefox isn't the problem; IE seems to be.

What on earth would make a bar on a page completely invisible? I've been coding for ten years, and I've never seen anything like it!

No, but I fixed it. A placeholder GIF was obscuring part of the table's visibility, for some reason. I've never seen that before, but it works now. Safari was the only Mac browser giving me fits, but IE on a PC was a bit problem, too.

Whew!

Thanks anyway, Bruce!

Does anyone here know the answers to a couple of questions?

In California, what is the rate of interest that must be paid on a renter's first/last/cleaning deposit?

I know there is a site online to calculate how much interest our initial deposit has earned, but I don't know the right thing to Google. Is it "amortized" something?

If we moved in in October, 1995, and paid $1525 as a deposit, can anyone tell me how much that's worth now?

Fangs.
