I maybe a star wars fan , but i have a day job which is totally different from what these guys have - http://www.seattlestarwars.com/ waiting for the movie to be released in a theater in May 2002, while the theater management do not even know if the movie is going to be screened in that theater . Now what if it gets released in the theater next to it and they are not the first ones to get the ticket - DOH !

Story of the year :http://abcnews.go.com/sections/business/DailyNews/net_fraud_020107.html
"This case demonstrates that just about anyone even a 17-year-old high school student can mastermind a securities fraud over the Internet," said Stephen M. Cutler, director of the SEC's Enforcement Division.

Invest Better 2001 apparently offered - YES 2500% return on investments over christmas.
Want to know what the people who invested in the scheme think ? they are discussing over here
http://communities.msn.co.nz/investbetter2001support/general.msnw : Weird that people do fall prey and trust such claims - 2500% return , phew.

Now after Euro was introduced over new year's day , my logic is being defied. I was trying to book a flight to Italy on Expedia and was looking up the exchange rate of lire to Euro's to Pounds to Punts and what do i see ?
600.00 European euros = 600.00 European euros . Fine then that means the exchange rate =1 right ? Wrong Exchange rate: 0.999999
http://www.expedia.co.uk/pub/agent.dll .I guess i will have to get used to rounding off now .
No wonder why an italian pensioner tried to get a cappuccino by paying 600 odd euros , in effect trying to exchange Euro's to Lire, needless to say she was unsuccessful and the cafe cashier refused . I think her monthly pension in lire would have been around 1,200,761 how does that number compare against a meagerly 600 odd euro's ?
When it comes to coins , i like the italian euro coins , they are by far the superior in design ,mainly because they have Vitruvian Man on 1 Euro and 2 Euro has Raphael's portrait of Dante Alighieri.
Boring is probably , best said when it comes to design of the belgian euro coins.

Brief encounters on the main street : http://www.pinkheadedbug.com/portfolios/humantraffic/index.html I didn't even remember that i was out shopping on oxford street until i saw this site ...I am very much interested in street photography (now) and i have to admit , this is much better than the freak watcher's website

The internet auction lady is back at it again , but this time on qxl.com , after having her chance on ebay .
So she desperately wants to marry ??- why ? Btw these are some of Kay's sites :
I was surprised to find minxmag.com to be a porn site , but that is another issue. Is that why it was taken off the tamba "pr" website ?
Guess we will never know . If i were to place my bet on someone , it will be peter.rodwell who might win the collectable . Also note according to the site "Images are for
illustrative purposes only " - More at http://www.qxl.com/cgi-bin/qxlhome.cgi/EN/QXL/PR/U1010079228/_22398385
Or on second thoughts i think pierre might win ..

Story of the week - Of all the things that are auctioned on ebay the latest one seems to be a internet entrepreneur auctioning herself online .
What do you say an internet entrepreneur ? and haven't heard of dating sites etc., ? yep the only logical way to do it was auction's i am told .
Now a classic case of dot com bust , Kay Hammond , MD of tamba.co.uk was auctioned online !!? Weird enough for me .
Quote "We split up the first time over a petty row - we were both too stubborn to apologise and that was it. " - she was 19 and working as an IT manager in Croydon
{ MANAGER @ 19 } And her Ally Mcbeal website alone earns her 25,000 / year and her ex boyfriend earns 17,000 /year + overtime ...
