South Jersey Stories

Judge: Man not allowed to change name to NJWeedman.com

It's just as well. There are probably some serious downsides to the name. For one thing, if he forgets to renew his domain name, it might be scooped up by someone else. Then it may point to a domain speculator's site, a porn site, or worse yet for him, an anti-drug site. And then when he fills out a form, what's his family name? .com? Will people think it is a crank call when he makes a restaurant reservation over the phone?

Box game brings out bomb squad

This incident has also been discussed here. So geocaching made the news over the weekend, although perhaps not in a good way. I found the cache mentioned in the story a few months ago. It's not behind the garage as the article says. It's more than 0.1 of a mile from the garage, past the grassy area, past a bunch of trees with annoying low branches, at the edge of a swamp. No one would ordinarily be walking back there but looks like someone did. The wire and alarm contraption, while rather clever, could also be scary and bomb-like in appearance. It's meant to be a physical clue, hanging a short distance from the cache, that you can pull on to find out where the cache is hidden.
