Welcome to the Inside Perspective! You get another special treat today! Mjollner, one of our newer Moderators, shared an e-mail with us that his father had sent to a Pressure Cooker manufacturer. It was so funny, I just had to get permission to share it with y'all. Enjoy!

Ron's Inside Perspective

I just read a linked page I saw on [H] that just has me very very saddened.  It took me to Leo Leporte's website where it was announced by Leo that the TechTV channel, its employees, and station itself based in San Fransisco, are to move to LA along with the entire current staff to be let go with 60 day notice.  Now, I'm not one to usually go into a topic like this, but this one bugs me a bit and to be honest, I just wanted to tell someone and well..  consider yourself the sucker for me to spew off on for

Welcome to the Inside Perspective! Two years and two days. That's how long I've been doing the B&P. I swear it feels like yesterday when Ron sat me down and showed me how to post news for the first time. LOL

When Ron turned the B&P over to me, he told me to try and get about 12 links before posting so that we don't just post a few links here and there, but can offer up a good sized list for y'all to enjoy. There were days when a B&P didn't get posted because I hadn't found those 12 links to share.

Welcome to the Inside Perspective!  Going up? You just never know when you get on the elevators in my office building. I've been in some slow, temperamental elevators in my time, but the two around here take the cake.

For starters, they're never going to win any speed races. It's almost faster to walk up the stairs to my floor than it is to ride the elevator. Seriously. And of course, this means you have to wait a good bit of time for them to show up after you push the button.


And wait. And wait. Because see, there's another little problem with them.

Welcome to the Inside Perspective! I've got a special treat for y'all this week. A long time Forum member and Retired Mod, Fluff n'Stuff, e-mailed me with the following story. Enjoy!

Now, you must understand. My job is to drive folks from their homes to the Airport, and vice versa. It's what I do, and if I do say so, I'm good at it. Part of that job is to carry folks' luggage from their house to the van... I have no problem with that, it's part of the Customer Service, and something my company is known for.

Welcome to the Inside Perspective! As you might have noticed, Ron and I were on vacation last week. We were in New Jersey celebrating Passover with his family.


Ron never ceases to amaze me. It takes all of my wily cunning to get him to eat vegetables, but he'll eat Chopped Liver like it's going out of style. Go figure.



This was my first celebration of Passover, and I have to brag just a bit and say that I tasted a dab of everything set on the table for the two Saders (first two nights/evening meals of Passover).

Welcome to the Inside Perspective! Last week was a week I just as soon forget. So, instead of re-living my week of torture, I figured I'd spend today talking about something much more pleasant. How about M&M's? :D

Over the holidays this past year, my Secret Santa gave me an M&M Dispenser. It's really a cool little toy. You press a button and you get rewarded with three or four M&M's -- unless you get lucky and the button gets stuck, in which case you can wind up with a fist-full!

I want to know what YOU want to see

I have added a new post to my online weblog asking YOU for your opinions on what you want to see at the new PC Perspective.

With that in mind, what else do you want to see? A lot more cooling? Peripherals? Memory testing? Storage? How would you like to see the news covered? Are press releases interesting to you?

Welcome to the Inside Perspective! I need a Flash Memory card for my brain. You know, some place to store an idea or thought you have that you don't want to forget, but aren't in a position to nab a pad and paper and jot it down. Maybe I just need to bite the bullet and buy a dictaphone to carry with me everywhere. My luck I'd have an idea and the batteries would be dead...

What is it about good ideas that they only pop up when it's next to impossible to get them set down in writing? Probably the worst is when I'm in the shower. That hot water really seems to stimulate my thinking.

Welcome to the Inside Perspective! Does the name of this editorial column make more sense now? Back when Ryan asked me to split up the B&P and my "off topic" chatter, I asked him to help me come up with a name for this new column. Is he smart, or what? ;)

I like the look of the new site. When Ryan first starting tinkering with design, he started with Blue and Orange as the two basic colors. We talked him into changing the Orange to "AMD" Green, just to help us keep a tad bit of our roots in the scheme of things.

So, the colors are cool, and that logo is fantastic!
