The show chronicles some, well, unique individuals who spend their time fishing for Alaskan king crab and Opilio crab in the Bering Sea. The show is titled The Deadliest Catch because of the extreme risk these guys go through (many times for quite a large reward). Many have died in the hunt for Alaskan crab, leading some to call this the world’s most dangerous job.
I am a huge fan of Andrew Card, President George W. Bush’s campaign manager and first Chief of Staff. He served as Chief of Staff to the President for over five years, and was the second longest serving Chief of Staff.
Last week, Card was interviewed on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It was quite an incredible interview, and I think the length of the interview (one of the longer interviews I have seen) is testament to Card’s importance within the White House (see the interview after the jump).
I was working on a paper a little while ago, and someone began to chat with me in Gmail.
It was a friend of mine who I had emailed earlier today about a class assignment. This friend uses Gmail as well, so instead of replying to the email when he saw that I was was available on chat, he simply began a Gmail chat (or Google Talk, I don’t know how to refer to it) session with me.
But, this time, I saw something new in the integrated chat window. Gmail knew that my friend was indeed replying to my emailing, even though he was replying through Gmail chat. So Gmail put a little text in the window to tell me that the message is “In reply to [email message subject]” and includes a link to the email.
Amazing! Gmail continues to astonish me with useful features that might have been around for a while (I mean, who really knows how long this has been in Gmail) and I just now happen find them.
If you haven’t already found the Word, whoops, I mean Gmail, go here to get a free account. It comes with nearly 3 gigabytes of email storage, integrated chat, and you can use Gmail as a one-stop-shop for sending and receiving email from all of your email addresses (forward your other email addresses to Gmail or have Gmail fetch the email for you). Once brainwashed by the amazingness of Gmail and the other Google apps, you will never look back.
I’m supposed to be working on a big paper, so that leaves me wanting to work on everything I’ve been meaning to do, lol (can you say procrastination???).
