Wow, we had not heard about this place, until we happened to be a Jalisco’s (a great Mexican restaurant on Capital Hill), the waiter said he’s just been to Acme to bowl and it was terrific.
We took our kids birthday party in tow and headed down there. Wow, it is way nicer than Sunset Bowl (no smoking!) and although it is expensive ($90 for six people, two lanes, shoe rentals and two games), it is worth it.
It is clean and has lots of flat screen TVs everywhere. There is a bar and a restaurant too. It is brand new and across from the Mervyns. See http://acmebowl.com for more details. 100 Andover Park West, Tukwila, WA 98188 Main: 206.340.ACME

Well, the fall 2006 “Canon rebates”:http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PromotionsAct are finally here as expected. They are valid 10-15-2006 through 01-13-2007 so just in time for those of us going on Christmas vacation. Significantly, they aren’t discounting the new Digital Rebel XTi, but some of the tasty hardware I’ve been eyeing include. Also the rebates double if you buy […]
Both Sony and Apple have updated their lines with some amazingly cool laptops. I’m really drooling over them because they both have the ultra fast core duo. Here are the recommendations: !http://a248.e.akamai.net/7/248/2041/1140/store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Images/step2_beautyshot_mbp17_060424.jpg!:http://store.apple.com/1-800-780-5009/WebObjects/EducationIndividual.woa/6104004/wo/vitxjoEZiTEo3jHhzH0233YKcbD/17.?p=0 the big news though is that Apple just updated their Macbook Pro line to have the Intel Core Duo 2 chip on it.

OK, in cleaning up MovableType I learned quite a bit about how it works. Here are some important notes on: A nonobvious thing is that is a category in a tree, say portfolio is the category and the subcategory is semiconductors, and there is nothing in portfolio, then the category software won’t build an index […]
I’ve had the rare opportunity to actually buy something based on a pricing scheme I was part of creating. In this case, we use Microsoft Small Business Server at “Qiming”:http://qimingventures.com and now we’ve run out of users. We got the software from the Microsoft Company Store, but it only supports 5 users. I remember all […]
Shanghai actually has a reasonable number of high end shops. There is the Trek store near Thumb Plaza and there is also “Bicycleshop.cn”:http://bicycleshop.cn. The prices are the same as the U.S. it looks like at least from the site. They have two locations one is in Pudong. The new shop is on Zhang Yang Lu […]
On the other hand, suits are much cheaper in China than in Hong Kong. “W.W. Chan”:http://www.wwchan.com/ is in the “Jin Mao Shopping Mall”:http://www.jinmao88.com/en/shopping/item/2004_02/793.shtml. They actually have three locations in Shanghai. You can get the finest Italian material and get it made essentially anyway that you want. A really high end suit with two pairs of […]
According to Roland, if you want a fancy watch, you should go to Hong Kong. There is a 30% luxury import tax in China, so it makes more sense to go to Hong Kong.
While driving from the dinner, I saw a “Trek”:http://www.billingsgazette.com/newdex.php?display=rednews/2005/10/13/build/business/54-trek.inc store in China. Apparently late in 2005, they opened a store. Giant (the big Taiwanese bicycle manufacturer is here as well, but only sell low end bicycles), but Trek is going to seel more. Other interesting tidbits are that Trek itself has 35% of the US […]
