Neal Shaffer comes through in the clutch!

I'm meeting with Editors immediately to request additional resources to further FMEB.

It's a rallying cry our founding fathers would have been fond of.

"Free Makes Everything Better!"

I don't think the website has been taken yet either.

But I smell a brand ... 

Shaffer is a forward thinker, and MS is all about thinking forward.

So thank you, Neil, for making my day.

I've checked and the web domain is yours. You don't even need the hyphen in the middle. Victory is yours.


Pronounce that a "Fah-MEB" maybe?

Birds of a feather will have pizza! she loves your blog

Lo-fi looks dead dude. Ill know more this weekend. seems that Neil is NOT paying his people.

I suggest, pronouncing it:


When spoken in a bar over music, it sounds like "F Me".

No problem, Sam. It was the least I could do. Glad you dug it.

I was thinking of pronouncing it literally how it reads, "fmeb". It's real awkward, but those who get it, get it.
