As an aside to one of the many topics that this post has dealt with, my car died at an intersection today. I couldn't even turn on the hazards. As I got past my initial anger, I realised that no hazards had to mean something was up witht he battery. Sure enough, I opened the trunk, pulled the pane open, and the negative lead was off the battery. Apparently Todd didn't do all that great a job of reconeecting it!
