Flashdrive Your Electronic Life

Portable Apps is an open source freeware initative that collects a ton of useful programs (Firefox, Gimp, Open Office...) that you can take with you on a flash drive and use on whatever computer is handy. This looks very cool.

Appalachian State stuns Michigan

Appalachian State (division I-AA) beats No. 5 Michigan 34-32. Good. I am a Wisconsin fan but I don't dislike Michigan or other Big Ten teams. But I do find it lame to schedule teams that are the equivalent of picking a fight with the 98 pound weakling. I am glad to see one of these bullies get beaten. Wisconsin schedules the weaklings too - I wish they wouldn't.

Some of the scores this week from big time football schools playing teams they shouldn't: 49-3, 38-6, 59-0, 73-10. And that doesn't include USC's game against Idaho which will be another blowout.
