I'd like to go see what it's all about. (I have family in Richwood). But I don't want to put up with the traffic or see what a gathering of 4,000 people and growing are doing to my favorite hiking area.
Things of interest to me.

...All in all, People of the Rainbow is a Herculean attempt at a Quixotic task. His freedom of Information Act research alone is worth the price of the book. In spite of its flaws--and its polish--Mike Niman's detailed examination and clear assessment of the Family is a contribution that would make any Rainbow Warrior proud."Stephen Wing, Ho!, All Ways Free
In his new reality show, "30 Days," Spurlock tackles some weighty issues -- such as racism, poverty and homosexuality -- and he does it in his documentary style (read: Michael Moore-lite). He literally throws himself into this project -- starring in one and then hosting the others.
The show features a diverse group of participants who are given the chance to experience life as a radically different person for one month, investigating first-hand a world vastly unlike their own. In the premiere episode, Spurlock and his girlfriend explore the life of the working poor by giving up their NYC lifestyle and moving to Columbus, Ohio (Flint would have been too obvious), to attempt living on minimum wage.
Ezboard systems touted as the "largest online community network site on the planet", was virtually brought to its knees Tuesday as the result of "a very precise and malicious internet attack resulting in the loss of a significant amount of current and historical board postings and interrupted services across all systems", according to Ezboards' CEO, Robert Labatt's message to Ezboard members.
Tuesday's attack caused denial of service errors throughout the system and affected millions of users across approximately 9,000 message boards. The attack resulted in massive data loss, both current and historical from message boards within the system. Many Boards also lost accumulated monetary funds stored within their communities that is used toward Board subscription services.
abatt is ensuring Ezboards members that their personal information including credit card info remains safe and was not touched during the attack.
Most message boards were accessible within several hours of the initial attack yesterday and Board owners are currently assessing the amount of data loss in their communities. Ezboards is warning their members that although they will do their best in restoring lost data, complete data restoration may not be possible. Repairs will be underway for the next week to 10 days.
