Hey, everyone, be careful on New Year's Eve. That's the night that the members of AA call "Amateur Night." Even if you don't drink, I'd still stay off the roads.
Other than that, what are you going to do with the extra second?

The day after Thanksgiving and the day after Christmas are the two WORST shopping days of the year. One year I had my wife drop me off at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving just to see what it was like. I got dropped off a block away cause you can't even get near without getting stuck in traffic. I wasn't shopping, just crowd observing, it was a pretty amazing thing to see. From the solid jam packed parking lot with cars endlessly circling bumper to bumper - to the solid jam packed stores with women endlessly circling like wingless vultures. It was a true cultural experience, and having recently come from a deserted part of the state and living in a cabin in the woods, it was like I was on another planet.
There is no way in Hell (or Heaven (or Apple)) that I would go near a store on the day after Thanksgiving. People get hurt (by other people) on that day... every year. Free fully-loaded Quad G5 PowerMacs or not - I'm not going!
