are we interested in doing anything with Mecha? This site is pretty much in retirement now but if any small tech stuff can help keep things lively (implementing the ability to say someone 'liked' your post, cross-posting from twitter etc, stuff like that) I'd be happy to help out.

So how was your week? Well, the depression isn't what it was a few months ago, when it would last me in spells of almost a month with a one week reprieve in-between. All in all, I say it's been an improvement in how it was earlier in the year.

What did you guys think of the latest show by Dave Chappelle? I'm forgetting the name, but it was the one where he went on to explain why he's got problems with the Transvestite community... I had no idea it was such a big deal out there, and for someone who might not be aware of the back-story, according to *not* Chappelle, just wanted to know what you guys made of it?

Israel/Palestine, India, and the US... I hear that times are tough for our US metachatters... my sisters say that the lines you guys are having to put up with at the gas pumps are the longest they've ever been (since the 70's fuel/oil crisis I'm guessing, thanks to the Arab countries blocking their trade thanks to the happenings in the middle-east that decade). And the same is happening this century as well, as it will again and again until this crisis in the middle-east is cured once and for all, which looks more and more like an uncertainty at this point.Read more...
