Mandatory Ingenuity

One of the perils of living in an older home is that some times the floor is slanted such that everything must be shored up. Kinda like living on a ship.
On a recent trip to a friend in such a home I snapped these two brilliant solutions. What happens when the book shelf fits, but not quite at the same elevation :)

This is a potential power add on that should work well if I do ever get Sugar CRM installed.
Right now I am having a hard time with
The session.save_path setting in your php configuration file (php.ini) is not set or is set to a folder which did not exist. You might need to set the save_path setting in php.ini or verify that the folder sets in save_path exist.

So, who is Gene Sperling?

In the name of transparency the government has a shiny new web site about the "Stimulus" Package, scroll down to the Fact sheet. By Gene Sperling. He is the author of the new Financial Stability Plan Fact Sheet.
He might me this Gene Sperling. That's scary! Now he works for Obama, somehow.

Federal Bail Out Paralysis

Of the two methods to help the economy, the federal infusion of capital is logically the best choice. 

What better way to get things moving again than by have your best "Customer", the Fed, put in a big order (a bridge painted, and road fixed) to the company (you and me).


In all government projects of this scale, there is fraud, corruption and the legendary government efficiency. That sets back the stimulation by %50. Now it ain't so pretty.

So a 800 Billion dollar project is now 400 Billion.

So then there is plan B

Tax cuts. While not a sure fire way of boosting the economy, its actuality the best option and most efficient per dollar.

Now about that paralysis; Doing neither is the worst. A struggling entity that may receive a load of cash in the future can now sit back and claim full stop we are doomed. There is no incentive to figure out the hardship, work it out. This then breeds victim-hood attitudes and further deteriorates our economy. 

Thanks Obama.......but no thanks.
