    A funny thing happened in the drive-thru last week. Views: 766
     Monday, November 06 2006 @ 10:37 AM EST
    Okay, true story!

    This happened last week on Wednesday (Nov 1) or maybe the following Thursday. I'm listening to Ep. 56 on my Ipod through my car radio like I usually do and I'm pulling up to the Drive Thru window at a local fast food place on my lunch hour to grab some food to take back to my desk. The kid at the window (about college age) makes a funny face while handing me my bag and asks me "Is that Podshock?"

    Of course, I'm taken aback for a sec and then I say, yes, it's episode 56, just got it this morning.

    He replies "Cool! I'll d/l that later when I'm off!"

    I thanked him for my food and drove away. You guys are famous!! I checked the Frappr map for kicks but I didn't see anyone else here in E. TN that looked like him, so he must not be on there.

    Oh well, also wanted to say thanks to the three of you, I took the leap and bought my Core 2 Duo 20" Imac yesterday after over 20 years in IT with Dos and Windows based machines. I had a Motorola Mac Mini for a couple of years now and loved it, but I'm a full convert now! I'm running Parallels with Windows XP and Fedora Linux 10 and they both run amazingly while OSX is cranking away in the background!

    I guess it's true, once you go Mac you never go back!
