BRKA $18,990 up per share - must be a record move

Class A shares of Berkshire Hathaway (Warren Buffett's company) just today were up $18,990 PER SHARE! Think that must be a record in change in per share price of a company in a single day.

(I only have a few B shares (1/30th the value) and don't think today at all typical of this market but am not surprised with the AIG stuff and all that Berkshire is way up.)

WoW: Downed Illidan

I almost never mention it here but still playing World of Warcraft and eventful week for my guild - I became an officer (one of the leaders) of the guild and last night we downed Illidan for the first time. Hopefully we'll kill a Sunwell boss or three before the expansion but my main goals for before it comes out are complete. I also got a Beta-key for the expansion but haven't really done anything with it and probably won't beyond just looking around and maybe screwing around with a Death Knight for a bit.

Crazy time at work too with both my boss and the director of our group having had surgery in the last days but seems all has gone well and my thoughts are with them.

Building a Castle in California

I should write a catch-up post given how long its been since I posted but for now here's a cool story of a guy in California building a castle entirely by himself, down to forging bolts and latches for it.
