Committing George: Wedding Sites Well, I finally got down on one knee and popped the question. She said yes and she'll soon have the title of Mrs. Name That Itch. Huzzah. And now the exceedingly fun part: the planning. My question is: Does anyone know of any useful all-purpose wedding planning websites? I've looked at The Knot, but I'd like to see what else is exists. more inside
Musipedia, inspired by, but not connected with, Wikipedia. The nice thing is that you can search for a tune by whistling it.
JFK Simulation: Education or Entertainment? The assassination of John F. Kennedy is probably the most intensively studied thirty seconds in human history.

The Oldest Song in the World? - Clay tablets found by archaeologists in the early '50s at Ugarit remained untranslated for nearly 20 years, but researchers knew they somehow related to music. Finally, the 3,400 year-old cuneiform texts were deciphered in 1972. They were musical notation for a hymn, utilising harmony, & were in the equivalent of the diatonic major scale, suggesting that the diatonic scale existed in ancient times & is probably based upon natural influences. more inside

Curious George--reunion. I recently became re-acquainted with a childhood friend of mine. While searching the web, I came across a book that he had written and instantly recognized his name. After a little more searching, I found his website and email and contacted him. We have exchanged letters and caught-up with each other's lives (its been 21 years since we parted.) Does anybody out there have similar stories? Has the web helped you contact lost friends, etc?

Curious, George: MoFi traditions, in-jokes and terminology? With all the subterreanean MeFi-MoFi wrangling of recent days, its been mentioned that MoFi is very much a seperate and unique community, with its very own idiom. But, what exactly are those in-jokes, running gags, traditions and so forth, as we monkeys see them? more inside
Is Paypal out of control? Personally I haven't had trouble with Paypal, but I'm thinking of jumping ship. Paypal has sparked a rash of slew of complaint and help sites. Paypal seems to be legendary for freezing funds of legitimate businesses. Others get hacked and are then thrown to the collection wolves. Funny that the BBB says they're a-ok, however New York has recently busted them. Anyone here had any Paypal woes? Should I jump ship as a seller? Main link seems to disappear in my Firefox but shows ok in IE.
