NTSB Recommends Cell Phone Ban For Drivers
My commute to work takes approximately 10-15 minutes, depending on traffic. I live within walking distance to a bus stop and a bus stops immediately in front of my building. However, the fastest route between those two places by our bus system takes me to the other side of the city for a transfer, involves waiting 25 minutes, twice, for transfers, and takes almost two hours each way! And it costs almost as much as my gasoline. I would love to be able to let someone else drive, but I'm not going to waste three hours every day just sitting on a bus when I could be spending that time with my wife and kids.

Circuit City and the American Dream
I've been a loyal Micro Center customer ever since I bought my first PC, a 386, at the Columbus, OH store in 1986 or 87 (not sure exactly). It was the Micro Center house brand, Laser, and was an excellent computer. (Some of my young family members still use it for playing old games.) Over the last three or four years, however, I've become increasingly dissatisfied with the BestBuy-ization of their stores: the sales people aren't knowledgeable, after-sale service is really a crap shoot, there for a while the store was rearranged considerably every time I went in (I've stopped in at least once a month or so ever since that initial purchase). These days I find that it's only good for if I know exactly what the SKU is that I want before going in, need a decent price, and need it in hand today. And even then I somehow wind up disappointed with the experience.
Does anyone know of a better local store (Columbus, OH) where I can pick up parts when I need them the same day? If I can wait, I order from Newegg, but I can't always wait.
