Cool site for winter toys

I just came across this site:

I like the idea, they have huge discounts on one random item at a time. I haven't found anything yet, but the things coming across the rss feed are promising.

My Pet Unicorn

C24C has just released what is in my opinion one of the best and most entertaining albums I've heard in a long time. Check it. One...

FaxIt Nice

At 350 Nice we rolled out a website called FaxIt Nice, an online faxing service. I was skeptical at first but we had the faxing technology already hooked up for another project we developed called OrderIt Nice and oddly enough a lot of F&$%ing people send faxes!! After rolling out the system we quickly realized that we needed to step up the infrastructure to support the thousands of people we had visiting our site; sending faxes from all over the world to all over the world. This has been somewhat of a distraction from other projects but one we are happy to deal with. We've enhanced the service to include features such as email to fax, broadcast faxing and have even had a few desktop clients developed by third parties. Never did I think when we started this company that a majority of our focus would be on a technology I had assumed was otherwise deprecated but here we are taking customers away from efax with a better product and an all around nice'r service.

Round Lake

Just did a hike to Round Lake in Meiss Country from the Big Meadow Trail-head. We we're a little confident in ourselves about the 3 mile hike and decided to lug a 60lbs inflatable boat up the trail. Unfortunately we didn't think to inflate it on the way and the 2am hike to the Lake that was intended to take an hour, took 3 as we switched off carrying the awkward heavy box. We arrived around 5 am to a pristine camp site on the deserted lake. The boat turned out to be well worth the headache as we spent all day Saturday rowing around lake.

During the day we would see hikers and mountain bikers coming along the Tahoe Rim Trail but at night we had the entire lake to ourselves. I'd imagine it gets a bit more crowded during the high season.

The trip at night is part of the fun getting there, its a short enough 3 miles with a few ascents. When you get to the big meadow trail head off of 89 from 50. You park and walk along a short trail, then cross over the highway. There's a short ascent from the highway to a giant meadow. You need to stay to the right when the trail forks, but there are markers along the way. After the meadow there's a moderate ascent to what I think is about 9000 ft. Once you reach the top of the mountain its an easy walk down to the lake. A few weeks prior I did a similar hike to Meiss Lake from the PCT. This is a smaller "warmer" lake about 1.5 miles from Round Lake. A good spot to avoid crowds in the high season.
