As always, watch out for scammers. They generally aren't that spendy, so you might want ot insist on using reputable escrow agencies.

For you who are not familiar with escrow agencies, they are a thrird party in the sale of something. When the sale is made the seller sends the item to the agency and the buyer sends the check to the agency. The escrow agency then cashs the check. If the check clears the send the money to the seller and the product to the buyer, after keeping a percentage for themselves. As the agencies are bonded, you can't get out and out stolen from. It's still no defense against being shipped shoddy goods, so some caution is still needed.

I can't help but wonder how much of the bigotry North Africans have sufferred and the resulting riots going on now have their roots in thebattle of Algiers. As I remember it... From 1830 to 1962 France ruled Algiers, the Algiers finally won independence. But prior to that the war was nasty. It involved the Algierians using many modern terrorist tactics, like killing civilian with bombs on the street, and the ethnic French would practice ethnic cleansing, rounding up many innocent north africans and torturing and killing them.

I can't help but wonder if this is old feuds flaring up again, and not really a new thing, like the media seems to be hyping.

Talk about a scam... I got this Snicker Bar (how is another scam that I will list below) and it's a king sized bar. It says, at first glance, that the bar is 170 calories. Then you read further and it's 170 calories per serving. And a little after that you find the bar is three servings. Who just eats a third of a candy bar? WTF?

Anyway, the other scam is in the machine the price is listed as $1.25, but the vendor messed up on the slot setting and the bar is just $0.65. It's been like this for a couple months. How much do you want to bet the machine owners are sure the techs are robbing them because the machines are never wrong?
then?, diesel sweeties - what are you

S2 examples?

I've decided I would like to design my own theme, but I would like to see some working code to get a better idea of the S2 flow.

Does anyone know of any S2 repository's I may peruse?
