The last few minutes have made for a rather surprising and surreal day. I stopped off at the local Used Computer Store (that's its name) and picked up an old monaural headset and microphone made by Labtec. As I read through the brief instruction manual, I noticed that the tech support number had an area code that I recognized. That's when I remembered that, when this microphone was made, Labtec was based in Vancouver, WA. As I drove home, reminiscing about the good-ol Vancouver BBSing days, I spotted two kids that couldn't have been more than 15 squatting on our corner and playing craps for big fat stacks of cash.
