OK, I couldn’t resist this one: what an old IBM PC is good for. I made one into an art project once, using spray paint and chalk.
I’ve (mostly) lived in Seattle since I was a month old, and since I was young I’ve had a pretty healthy interest in Seattle history. The Seattle Times carries a great weekly column by Paul Dorpat, Seattle Now & Then. (These online excerpts are on the Seattlesquare.com site, not at the Times.) It shows a historic Seattle photo, next to a current photo of the same location. Often, the modern version is no improvement.
Well, the house thing is still going on. Thanks to those who sent letters of support or showed up at the library board meeting yesterday to help. There’s still a lot of work for us to do in the next six days before the final decision is made, so site updates might be sporadic. I’m sure you understand.
