Not Every Box Comes With a Warranty...

Have you heard about the 'suspicious' package left outside a Florida Church?

That's right a couple days ago a cardboard box was left outside the Seminole County Church in Florida; the note on the 40-pound bundle said, simply, "For Pastor Nick."

In the old days, someone would have taken it inside and opened it. However, a church member who found the package on the doorstep thought the corrugated box secured with duct tape might be dangerous.

So he took the 'suspicious' box to a nearby fire station to have it checked out. The Seminole County Sheriff's Office bomb squad couldn't figure out what was inside even after the box was X-rayed.

So, deputies blew it up...

The Result
More than $2,500 in paper money was turned into confetti! That's right this 'suspicious' box was meant to be an anonymous donation to the Seminole County Church.

Fortunately, the church won't be out any money, though, because the U.S. Treasury will replaced damaged paper money.

Although we do not expect any of our products to be blown up upon arrival, we have 10 year product warranty just in case.

Food for thought: Have we become too suspicious in the post 9/11 world? What would you have done if it was you that found the box?

First Wiki Launched Today

WikiWikiWeb, the first wiki or user-editable website, was launched on March 25, 1995 and still is a valuable source of information and sharing.
The concept and development of the “Wiki” came from Ward Cunningham in a hope to create a web page that was quickly editable by the users. In Cunningham’s case, it was to establish and promote an exchange of ideas between programmers within his company.

Cunningham originally was going to call his new platform “QuickWeb,” but later he remembered a Honolulu language term for “fast” used by an airport counter employee. The employee told Cunningham to take the Wiki Wiki Shuttle, a shuttle bus line that runs between the airport's terminals. "Wiki Wiki" is a repeating of "wiki", a Hawaiian language word for fast.

From the “Front Page” of the WikiWikiWeb:

The idea of a “Wiki” may seem odd at first, but dive in and explore its links! The “Wiki” is a composition system; it’s a discussion medium; it’s a repository; it’s a mail syst…
