Monthly Archives: April 2001

Two years ago

If you didn't read BME in 1999, you might want to click here. If I paid more attention I'd have done one this year, but I didn't even realize it was April until now.

Oh, and at the urging of Scrunnel, I've added a warning to the jewelry section of the classifieds. All used jewelry should be treated as contaminated, and sterilized in an autoclave before use. Most piercing studios will do this for you for a $5 fee. Be warned that some jewelry such as acrylic and wood can NOT be adequately sterilized, and dangerous diseases could be transmitted via these jewelry types.


So to help me sleep on the airplane, I just dusted off my old MP3 player. It's actually pretty cool, because it's exactly the same shape as a regular tape, and has an electromagnetic interface so you can use it to convert an old car stereo into an MP3 player. It also has a headphone jack and can work standalone. Of course, it only has 32 MB (enough for seven or eight songs), but it's better than nothing. It's tempting to get a better one, but really, the odds of me using it much are slim to none.
