The Walkman is (officially) History

According to this article, the last batch of Sony Walkman's have been made and distributed. If you don't buy one now, you'll have to convert all your tapes.  You'll also have to explain to your children what a "cassette" is. 
And according to sales statistics, you'll soon have to explain to them what a "compact disc" is.

In Memory of Meliana Drake

Today marks the six year anniversary of the death of one of our classmates. Meliana Drake died suddenly due to complications of a brain aneurysm on Saturday, October 16, 2004.

Please visit her memorial page on the 88 site to read her obituary, see photos and leave your thoughts. If you are still in touch with the family, perhaps an encouraging card or phone call might be appropriate, just to let them know you were thinking about them.

My desire is to honor the rest of our deceased classmates throughout the year on the date of each of their deaths to keep their memory fresh in our minds & give us all a reminder to number our days.
