Every so often, you find a cute thing on the internet. One of my favorite unknown reseller non-vendor registrars started supporting .su.

On a whim..

That briefly took me back to when the internet was still a silly, open place.

“Battle Born” is the state motto of Nevada, and as I slowly work my way away, I found this poor thing- she was certainly put away wet and and has been hurt over the years.

I figured she and my own abused Daily Driver should have a chance to be seen, even if it meant walking all the way from the rear of the Wal-Mart parking lot.

The insidious pun hit several hours later (when I looked at our now-deprecated plates).

I’ve said this many times before, but hopefully this time it’ll stick-

Goodbye, Reno. I may visit you again, but you have become an incredibly depressing place to live.
