That's cool. If you bring your own bag into TJs they give you a raffle ticket for a weekly $25 gift certificate drawing or something like that. That's probably a more effective draw than giving you a refund of the price of the paper bag. Hmm, if the bags cost 5 cents each (WAG) they'd need to get people to use their own bags 500 times to make it profitable. I wonder how wide an area it's over? I don't remember if it was just that store, all of Redondo, or what.

I am sad though, my local TJ doesn't have the strawberry Luna bars anymore, though the one near work does, and the one near home still has the blueberry ones which i actually like better. And neither Vons nor Albertsons seems to carry Jergens bar soap anymore =/

Also i left work early on tuesday so i could listen to KSPC's video game show. I got to hear about a quarter of it on the way home and then an hour after i got home, but it turns out that after this week they're rescheduling it to 2-4 on Tuesdays. I don't think there's any way i can justify heading home from work _that_ early :(

Do they stream it? Or does WebSense block streaming audio?

Or, I suppose, podcast it? Seems like a lot of my favorite NPR shows are publishing podcasts of their programs these days.

They do stream it but it's blocked by WebSense. There is no podcast of it as far as i can tell. I could try to bring in an actual radio, but on a very good day you can hear the music with a fair bit of static on top of it, on less good days it usually gets drowned out by one of the other stations in the band.

Hmm. Clearly this is a job for cron! :) ::knows nothing about how to do unattended streaming audio saving::

And I remember radio reception inside Laserfiche-- even KPCC couldn't really manage to get a signal in (at least to my little portable radio). Maybe you could set up a relay in your car... ::wanders off into ham-radio-land::

I suspect TJs also makes some profit from selling people the reusable bags.
