Prelinger archive for all

Looks like the Internet Archive has part of the Prelinger archive online. This is really cool. I guess I can stop worrying if I’m no longer able to use the “Ephemeral Films” CD-ROMs that Prelinger put out a few years ago—after all, you can now stream such wonders as “A is for Atom,” “Personal Hygiene” (parts I and II!), and “This is Coffee” as well as tons of old newsreel footage and commercials. Very cool.

Finally unpacked

After more than two weeks we finally found the box that has the teakettle in it. Life is good. Hot here in Seattle today (meaning more than 85°, so I know I get no sympathy from the East Coast). Lisa’s suitcase still hasn’t been found by Delta.
