The horror that lurks in my back yard.

Why isn't this feature standard on all email programs?

Almost everyone has done it, but I don't think I've ever noticed this feature on an e-mail client. And it would be a piece of cake to implement.

When a user hits "send", the e-mail client should look for the word "attached" in the body of the document and if it's there, check to see if there is an attachment... If there isn't, then it should warn the sender that they "might have forgotten to attach their file... (send anyway or cancel)..."

You could put a "Don't show me this warning again" checkbox in the corner if you wanted...

This would probably catch 75% or more of the times this mistake is made.

Has anyone ever seen this feature on an e-mail client before? Maybe I just haven't experienced enough of the world of e-mail clients. But I've never noticed it on any that I've used...

Feeling like playing some boardgames...

Played some games recently with friends on Memorial Day... It reminded me how much I like to sit around with others and play a few games.

I have been going to Garage Sales recently and picking up bunches of cheap, interesting, but generally not so great games... Not sure why... It's a collection, a bit of amusement... Most of them cost $1 or $2...

Here's a random bunch from my collection. Hitting reload will show you others.
