Thanksgiving

Courtesy of snopes... Let's Say Thanks:
The Xerox Corporation is delivering postcards to US troops overseas. You can write your own short note that will be delivered to a random servicemember along with care packages from Give2TheTroops. Sending a card costs you nothing. The art for the cards is provided by unskilled child laborers, but at least there are many options to choose from!
Yay, Xerox! I will not use your name as a generic verb!


14 foot ethernet cable at Office Depot: $22
14 foot ethernet cable at Staples: $21
14 foot ethernet cable at Radio Shack: $17
15 foot ethernet cable from Kalron Inc. via Amazon.com: $1.96 + $3.92 shipping = $5.88
Days between my order and receipt of cable: 2
Improved online multiplayer experience: priceless

Thank you, troops! Thank you, Xerox! Thank you, Kalron Inc.
