Yet another reason not to drive

As if there weren't enough already, including skyrocketing gas prices and pollution, now we can add "might get shot" to the list.

See this latest incident in San Francisco. It's getting *scary* out there.

Return of the Quakes - Home Opener vs. Chicago

It's been almost 3 years since I last saw the earthquakes play live - and now we'll get that chance again. Unfortunately, it just had to coincide with Lug Radio Live, which I must attend for BytesFree.org.

This Saturday the Quakes take on the Fire in the same big-ass stadium in the east bay where the Raiders and A's play. What is it, again? Oh yeah, the coliseum.

So while I'll have to miss it, *you* can still go, and you should. Unfortunately, I've already given away my tickets to some other lucky individual, so you'll have to get yours elsewhere ;)

Lug Radio Live; New BytesFree.org Position Paper

I’m happy to announce that BytesFree.org will be represented at its first event, Lug Radio Live, which will be held at the Metreon in San Francisco on April 12th and 13th. Several of us have been working on the challenge of gettings things going organizationally, and appearing at an honest-to-goodness event looks to be a tangibly rewarding experience.

We will have a table at the expo. Also, Ilan and I will be speaking on Sunday at 3pm.

If you’d like to come by and say hello, or if you’re interested in helping out, please do let us know.

In getting ready for Lug Radio Live, we've had to refresh the site material to reflect some of the changes we've made organizationally, including a new mission statement:

Note: BytesFree.org is a group of concerned citizens currently in the process of incorporating as a non-profit in the state of California.

The Rolling Stones Now on eMusic.com

If you're like me and thing that the Rolling Stones reached their peak between 1966 and 1971, there is some very good news for you: The Stones have now arrived on eMusic!

Listen now - doesn't include Sticky Fingers, but it's really really good stuff.

Did you feel a tremor???

Don't be alarmed, that shaking you feel isn't the San Andreas going berzerk. Nope, not Hayward fault either, nor any of the other numerous fault lines in the area.


Set your calendars - the 'Quakes take on the LA Galaxy tonight on ESPN2 at 7:30 PDT.

Trader Joe's Doppelbock for 2.99!

I was disappointed by the winter seasonal doppelbock offered up by Trader Joe's under the "Josephs Brau" label (contract brewed by Gordon Biersch). Knowing it was brewed by Gordon Biersch, I expected the same quality but came away disappointed. But that was when it was sold for $5.99 per 6-pack. Last week, I guess they were trying to move excess inventory, and it was going for $2.99! Apparently, I wasn't the only one unimpressed. So at $5.99, I'll pass, but at $2.99? Oh yeah, baby! I see more decent but not that great doppelbock in my future.
