You've probably noticed the pickle hasn't had much new content lately. I've decided to abandon the project and move onto bigger and better things (hopefully). That doesn't mean the pickle is done forever, just until I decide what is a better fit for the site. I personally think we currently have our hands in too many different pockets, and although I feel it would work if our content was updated more often, all of the other authors have abandoned the project as well and posting often on such a wide range of topics is difficult for one person. The site wasn't updated nearly as often as I hoped.
For the time being, all of the existing pickle content will still be available. If I ever decide to take it down, I'll be sure to post about it.
Although the majority of our visits are from search engines and our returning visitor count small, to those of you that do frequent the pickle, I've always appreciated your hits.
Remember last week when the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series? It was pretty awesome. Of course Philly fans celebrated the victory the only way they know how... by destroying shit. This poor guy is an example of the wrath of destruction. His car was flipped over on Broad Street and he cannot afford to repair it or purchase a new one. Donate to this guy if you were there or are just feeling generous....
"This is pretty brilliant in its own special way. Let's paint the scene -- you're wandering the cold streets of Chicago a few months from now, and you're wondering where the closest pizza place is. You whip out your iPhone to pull up the Google Maps application, but wait -- your hands are covered in gloves, and no matter how much you try to swipe the screen, you can't get it to register your swipes, much less hit those little keys on the keyboard. But it's too cold to take your gloves off -- what do you do?"
