"turning Durham into the new Detroit" ? Heh. I'm looking forward to watching the continued ascendance of North Carolina, and the associated spike in cost of living there. All the folks who moved there because they thought it was a better deal are going to be in for a rude awakening.

(I'm not including Spell in that group because he went there for a specific opportunity rather than as an attempt to escape from the northeast.)

Actually, part of my move to NC was to escape the cold and snow of the Northeast.

but wait - if you bought a house while housing was less expensive...

...then you're less likely to be able to cope when your property taxes go up by an order of magnitude because they had to build more roads, schools, fire and police departments, etc. to accomodate the influx of people who moved to the place where housing was inexpensive. Happens all the time. "Growing" communities are unstable for this reason.

Anyone see the lovely new changes to Flickr? 

It looks as though MM got a look at Windoze8 and loved it so much she had to have her very own site that looked just like it.

Yahoo! now owns both Flickr and Tumblr. They ought to call up Pat Sajak and buy the missing vowels.

He already sold all his vowels to the parent company, that's why there are none left for them.

https links do not work with the text client and the "U" option.
I figured IE would be a squirt or nerf gun.

give up their personal information willingly?
