Obtaining a Name Change in Montana


Apparently this spurned husband didn’t take it so well when his wife entered into
a dalliance on a business trip.  William L. Managhan of the Managhan & Kortum-Managhan Law Firm, reportedly sent the following email to the entire membership of the Montana Trial Lawyers Association, detailing exactly how best to change your name in Montana:

Managhan & Kortum-Managhan Law Firm will no longer be known as such. The name is returning to Managhan Law Firm as Santana Kortum-Managhan is leaving the firm. Turns out that she was having sex with Tim McKeon of Anaconda while attending MMLP hearings in Helena. Call me silly but I no longer fill comfortable with her as my law partner or wife. Some will think this is an inappropriate announcement, but considering the small legal community in our state, I might as well preempt the roomer mill. Please address communication to William L. Managhan through Managhan Law Firm.
Managhan Law Firm PLLC

That’s a big “[sic]” for all those typos.  Whether the email is authentic or no, it’s quite a story, isn’t it.  The firm’s “Profiles” page reads “This page is currently unavailable,” lending a suspicious air of credibility to the tale.

And Mr. Managhan: if you did indeed send this out, can’t you take the time to be a real lawyer and run a spell-check before burdening us with your linguistic/romance woes and simultaneously trashing your wife’s reputation (if indeed that is you . . . hellooo?)?

iPhone free unlock finally achieved

If you have (or want) an iPhone, you used to be locked into AT&T’s 2 year contract. However, hackers have released a free unlock which allows you to use T-Mobile as a carrier. Actually, you can use any carrier that is using CDMA, but in America, that is only T-Mobile and AT&T.

Verizon is a no go, because it uses a different technology. But the rest of the world (that use CDMA) is now a very happy place. So if you like T-Mobile and want to buy a nice gadget, go nuts. Oh, and make sure it’s free. Other hackers were trying to charge for it, but the free project released before they were able to effectively mass-market it.

Details (from Gizmodo) are here.

Babylon 5: The Lost Tales non-spoiler Review (Worth the HD download on XBL)

Did you ever go to a reunion and see old friends that you haven’t talked to in years? People who you just generally lost touch with and who you immediately start to catch-up with? You start remembering all the good times you both had? And then it’s time to go?

That sadness is pretty much how I felt after watching this movie in HD. If you were even remotely a Babylon 5 fan, download this movie in HD. Continue reading
