Went to see a Giants-Mets game at PacBell park the other day. The park itself is brand spankin' new and much nicer than Candlestick (though I've only been at Candlestick for a 49ers game). However, I hate to break it to San Franciscans who believe that PacBell Park is the best park in the majors, but Camden Yards is nicer.

My bank uses Micro$oft's Internet Information Server for its online account access. Of course, they've chosen the most insecure web server they could. My guess is that they chose it because the banker's mentality of, "It comes from a large monopoly, it must be good." took over in place of common sense. again.
