    Hello Frank,

    I am currently listening to this broadcast, and specifically the Wheresgeorge.com part. The Dollar you are talking about started in my possession. I spend the better part of my day (at work) working on a computer, and wheresgeorge is my method of getting back at the computer. I can make my computer do somthing totally worthless. It is cool to find out where my Georges go, and just yesterday, one was reported from Japan. I gotta admit though that onsug.com has been the coolest, making it onto a broadcast, imagine that!. All I gotta say is that you got to pick a memorable password, one you can remember!. Rebuilding the database on WG also counts as your “georgescore” so folks that don’t visit regularly, (like you)don’t score high. (getting a high score is worthless too, but it makes ya feel good). I agree, with you, my wife, and many others, that this is a waste of time, but it is a source of mental release for me. By the way, my wife never did know I swiped (I guess I double hit the “ppp” key originally) the george!

    Mark – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed! I’ve only just scratched the surface, and the XioSynth has utterly amazed me – hard to believe something so inexpensive and portable sounds so great!!
