It's like giving money to gamblers.
I have a really bad feeling about that. Now we start to see the extent to which the not-so-All-Powerful US government can go. It's not going to be enough.
The day the US government balks at the buying of the bad debt, (say when it reaches 1 trillion) the economy will still tank.
The fact of the matter is that the US needs inflation now to drive salaries up so that people can actually pay their 30-year fixed mortgages. There's nothing that can be done with ARM. They are going to default wholesale. There's no reason for people to try to work out a deal on their ARM now... Just wait a few months and sell it to the Govt.
I think Wall Street is going to realize this soonest. And then: roller-coaster again.

This website from Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky is turning out to be highly valuable. I hope they can scale, because they're about to be the Hot Property on the web.

No matter what I do I keep getting this error when accessing the msdn homepage. It says:

This does not occur in IE6 or in Google Chrome. Go figure.
Update: I figured it out. I was logged in with my live account. When I'm logged out, it doesn't happen.
Tried again: Logged it to my live account, got the error; logged out, error went away.

I tried Google Chrome, but after about 1 hour, I uninstalled it. It's true it's better than IE, but it ain't better than firefox; not for me anyway.
I tried ubiquity, the mozilla add-on, and that was Spectacular!
I'm in the beta for stackoverflow.com. Shaping up very nicely. Lots of difficult questions coming up on that site. Slant toward .NYET, but otherwise good.
Oh, Simon Stapleton sent me $10 for being the commentator of the month for August 2008 at simonstapleton.com. See, $10 bought a link. And my gratitude.
