Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Compact disc antitrust lawsuit finalized
The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A federal judge approved a $143 million settlement Thursday of a lawsuit that accused major record companies and large music retailers of conspiring to set minimum music prices.

Under the settlement signed by U.S. District Judge D. Brock Hornby, 3.5 million people who signed on to an antitrust lawsuit are to receive shares of the award.

Checks for $12.60 are expected to be mailed out within a couple of weeks to the millions who mailed in claims and submitted them online. [...]
I remember filling out the online claim form a while back--I figured that so many others would do the same that the minimum payout of $5 per person would be reached. I knew it would never hit the max of $20, but 12.6 bucks is pretty good, I suppose.
