Taking the lower figure, that means that New York Times, if it stopped printing a physical edition of the paper, could afford to give every subscriber a free Kindle. Not the bog-standard Kindle, but the one with free global data access. And not just one Kindle, but four Kindles. And not just once, but every year. And that’s using the low estimate for the costs of printing.
As the cars race around Daytona International Speedway, I wanted to pause to remember a Nascar legend: Dale Earnhardt.
Today is the tenth anniversary of his passing, following a wreck on the last lap of the 2001 Daytona 500. I will never forget watching that race as Darrell Waltrip called (and cried during) his brother Michael’s win and said, “I just hope Dale’s OK. I guess he’s alright, isn’t he?”
SceneDaily.com has published a collection of photos of Dale Earnhardt, so go take a look.
Today, remember the Intimidator. He was a racer from a different time and a different age. He embodied Nascar. And he departed way too soon.
SceneDaily.com also published an excerpt this morning from Michael Waltrip’s new book, In the Blink of an Eye: Dale, Daytona, and the Day that Changed Everything. This tells Michael’s side of the story of that fateful day. Be forewarned, it’ll bring you to tears.
ESPN has an incredibly touching segment on the day that Dale Earnhardt died, with some incredible videos and interviews.
“UGAKey.com is one of the most widely used sites in this category, particularly for the course registration process,” Hatfield said. “It is a popular tool with solid data.”
UGAKey.com Announces Acquisition by Koofers
Georgia Alumni Thank Users, Ensure Grade Data for Future
February 14, 2011
University of Georgia students have a new resource for choosing their courses and professors.
UGAKey.com, a website containing grades for most University of Georgia courses since 1999, will now be available from Koofers.
The eleven years of grade data previously available on UGAKey.com, along with several thousand syllabi, will now be accessible through Koofers.com, along with course textbook listings, professor reviews, and other services that Koofers brings to over 2,000 campuses nationwide.
UGAKey.com was developed by UGA alumni Chris M. Lindsey ‘08, Noah Mink ‘08, and Paul Ruddle ‘09. An original version of The Key was available on a Black Tie Party website in March of 2006, while UGAKey.com officially opened its doors on August 11, 2007.
“We created UGAKey.com to provide a service to UGA students,” said Chris Lindsey, UGAKey.com co-founder. “We’ve had a great time building and maintaining the site. But, as we’ve graduated from UGA, we’ve found less time to add the new features to the site that we’ve always dreamed of. Koofers will provide more great services to UGA students, at no cost.”
Fellow co-founder Paul Ruddle added, “We want to thank all the UGA students who have made UGAKey.com an invaluable part of their course registrations for more than five years. We know Koofers will continue to provide the important information you’ve come to expect from us, and we look forward to seeing what exciting new things they have in store.”

I am incredibly sad to hear any public servant speak these words, much less a member of the House of Commons.
