Baseball fields looked more intensely green in the 60s in contrast to the black and white TV screens we watched most games on. #
I remember how amazing it all looked in full color when I got out of the tunnel at Shea into the full magnificence of the field. I suppose that was a virtual reality experience then, and to this day our computer screens are no competition for the real world. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
