Robbed... again?

You know it’s time to sell a branch when it keeps getting robbed… even when the customers can’t go inside!

A bank that has been robbed so many times it bans customers from coming inside was held up again anyway on Friday.

Anyone using the Bank of America branch on Silver Hill Rd. has been forced to go to the drive-up or the ATM for the last few months, after managers got fed up with the repeated heists. But when one of the tellers went out for a break, a robber saw a window of opportunity.

“There were two tellers inside of this bank. One of the tellers left to run over to the drug store and as she was walking back, a suspect wearing dark clothing produced a gun and forced her inside the bank,” Cpl. Diane Richardson of the Prince George’s County police. The suspect tried to lock both tellers in the vault, but could not.

Iowa Wireless Internet

It was one of the most unexpected things for me to see on my trip to Kansas City. Iowa rest stops have wireless internet access available!

The service is provided by I Spot Access, and apparently has been available since June 2004. Anybody who signs up for an account with the provider has the ability to surf free of charge for 30 minutes. Now that’s a good way to market your product.

Well, that, and also the highway signs that are posted for all to see!

A friend from work recently set up a technology blog… promises to be a lot of good information.

A Film by Carter Madajczyk

At my fiancée’s request, I yanked all of the pictures from my digital camera off because the CF card was full. I wasn’t really sure why, but I’m not one to argue (too much).

While I was transferring the pics, I noticed that there seemed to be a few movies on there. No, not live shots of Paris Hilton… but it wasn’t anything I had taken either.

Closer inspection found that on Sunday, Carter had stolen the camera while I was sleeping, taken about 10 pictures, and replaced it. On Monday, just after I got home, he was playing with the camera again. Little did I know, he had it set to capture movies.

Out of the six or seven mini movies he recorded, two were so good I thought that I would share them. In the first one, he seems to spend his time getting used to the camera. By the second, he’s already moved into the director’s seat, and he’s barking orders left and right.
