CitySearch? What Happened?

CitySearch.com has long been my mainstay of all things Portland. I have a good idea of what I'm doing New Year's Eve, but regardless, wanted to check it to see if there was anything I'd missed. It usually has a huge repository of information on any holiday. I was shocked to find next to nothing on the site, and what I did find find was because I'd run a Google search.

Is CitySearch starting to tank?

Swap Meetup

Greetings all. I'm going to the "bonus" meetup tonight and I have an offer for everyone. Seems that "Santa" brought me the wrong blank media. I have a spindle of 25 DVD-R that I can't use. If you want them, show up at the meetup tonight with whatever they're worth to you. Trades considered.

Ok, my place of employment is holding their holiday party tonight. We are doing the secret Santa routine. My recipient is a boy who is 19 or 20ish. I don't normally work with him so I ahve no idea what he's like. A couple girls at work say he's late all the time and that I should buy him a watch, Problem is, there is a $10 cap on the gifts, and I really hate gag gifts.

Any ideas, DPers?

Anyone know where I can take an Adobe Pagemaker course this spring (Jan-Apr)? PCC seems to only have Photoshop, and Mt. Hood doesn't have anything from the looks of it either.

Laptop trade-in?

Anyone know of a good place that'll take my older laptop as a trade in? I know these places exist here and there, and I'd like to get a new laptop... my old one has the visual memory of a cell phone. :( I'd rather not have to shell out the full price on a newer one if I can help it, and I don't really wanna just toss the old one either.....

As an alternative, anyone wanna buy a Pentium III Hewlett Packard laptop? It has a new hard drive in it but needs a new fan... I suppose I could hit up Craig's List, but I'd really rather find some little shop that does trades....

Anyway, thanks.
