In record-setting news, Devon reports that Pukey Asian Night has set a new one: not number of pukings, but this time, number of pukings on staff. That number so far is three. On armpit-to-ankle; one from above, through the stairs; and one when someone foolishly got between a girl and her intended garbage can.

Children Hurt When Bounce House Collapses
PARKLAND, FL (AP) -- Broward County officials say several children were injured after a bounce house collapsed.
The Sheriff's Office reports that about six children were injured while playing at a summer camp in Parkland. Spokeswoman Liz Calzadilla-Fiallo says at least ten children were on the slide that is designed to hold only four at a time.
The slide is about 15 feet high at its highest point. It's not yet known what caused the bounce house to collapse, but those playing on it fell into each other. Some complained of facial or back injuries.
If you loved me, you'd buy me a ball sucker:
I will also require a ball washer:
"Move balls from one ball bath to another or create a ball fountain! You can combine it with a ball washing machine, so that your kids will play in heaps of hygienic balls!"
See to it. Thank you.
(See, when we were first talking about getting a bouncy castle, I instead wanted us to just get enough 4" plastic balls to fill the entire ground floor of the club to a depth of about four feet. But, we couldn't find a place that sold those balls for less than about 5¢ each. I figured that'd take around 300,000 balls, which would have been $15,000, not counting shipping.
And then what do you do with them? I favored just opening the door at the end of the night and setting them free on 11th street, but someone might have noticed.)
I got a Treo 650
. It seems pretty sweet so far.
What's a good AIM client? Preferably free. Two features required for ranking as "good" would be "always on" and "doesn't log me out of the AIM session on my desktop in Adium". (Therefore AOL's official client does not qualify.)
After a couple of hours of flailing around, I seem to have gotten it to sync with iCal and the Apple address book (so hopefully I'll never have to look at the monstrosity that is "Palm Desktop" again). But, it seems to sync quite a bit less than "everything". E.g., when I add a userpic to someone on the phone, that doesn't end up in the Apple address book. The PalmOS calendar seems to have only one calendar, but I've got several in iCal. And so on. I gather there are 3rd party whoozywhatsits that change how some of this works. What's the done thing?
Will it kill the battery life if I habitually leave the phone plugged into the charger 16+ hours/day?
How do I convert an MP3 file into a ringtone for it?
It's been a while since I've used PalmOS. What else should I know, or download?
Woodcreeper posts photos of his own brain: The Alien Revealed:
"Here we can see the circular cut through the dura layer with my brain and the tumor exposed. Apparently the tumor was a little stuck to the brain and had to be 'peeled' (in the words of my surgeon...very nice) away from it. No biggie, it just added an extra 1.5 hours to the procedure."
