I see Windows Eight has arrived ( They would do better if they call it “Windows Eight” instead of “Windows 8”- It implies horsepower ) – Frank Lee, I don’t see what the hoopla is about. It’s mainly a different screen and a different way to sell software, am I overlooking something important? I don’t need all of my software to be “apps”. That’s another thing, I know “Apps” is short for applications, but it’s also a big chunk of the word “Apple”. Perhaps it would be too Charlie Sheeen-esque to call them “Wins” instead.

Old street bread box I didn’t know they used to deliver bread to boxes outside your building- I always thought a bread box was the wooden roll-up thing on my mom’s kitchen counter. This outside box is probably four times as large. So my question is, what size box is the one people want to know if things are bigger than?

P.S. See Shorpy.com for lots of huge old images, mostly from ancient government repositories.
