    That’s pretty interesting curtiss – I know my snes also turned yellow. And I can remember my mother bitching about me not keeping it clean. I should show her this!

    BTW- doesn’t your new job start tomm!!?!?!

  • Yup. New job starts tomorrow. I’m pretty psyched. The transition out of my old job was pretty difficult, but nice.

    I generally don’t read articles like the one mentioned in this blog post, but I found that one to be so interesting and informative, and just thought I’d post it.
