Life is generally going well for Jack Stanfield (Harrison Ford). He's been running the computer system at his bank for a while now, and it looks like things are on track for the merger to go through, meaning that the small 26-bank operation is about to become part of a much larger company.

The only bad part about that is that it means that he won't be a part of the day-to-day operations any longer. But it does mean that he can slow down and take some time with his family, and no one will be sad about that. It's too bad that some other people have other plans for him - and his family - before this can all go through.

It seems that Bill Cox (Paul Bettany) has decided to make a play for some of the bank's money, and he's targeted Jack in order to get at it. After all, why go directly to the money, when you can go after the man who protects the money instead?

Mythbusters Recap: Underwater Car

Underwater Car Escape. This is one of the coolest myths ever tested on the show, just because it is involves live action - that is, actually doing something, and it doesn't involve Buster (who has been conspicuously absent lately). But in it, Adam is given the rather unsettling duty of "driving" a car as it takes a dive in a pool, to see if it is really true that you can't open the door until the car fills up inside, so that the pressure equalizes.

Of course, precautions are taken - there are safety divers all around the pool, and Jamie is in the backseat, just in case he's needed. So with everything ready, a car is acquired and stripped of oils and such that will foul the pool (since it is actually in use). Then weight is added back to mimic the weight that was removed by the engine being ripped out, the car is loaded onto a crane, and Adam is unceremoniously lowered into the pool.

At some point recently, the Google Reader has added the long-awaited (or long-desired) "Sort by Oldest" function. To turn it on, simply click the "View Settings" drop-down, and then "Sort by Oldest". This is available for individual feeds or the "All Items" view.

Though I've been using the Google Reader for a while now, I have to say that this is the main thing that was bothering me. There are a handful of blogs that I read where I just want to get the information in an oldest-first method, because I want to hear the first thing that happened to someone prior to hearing about the newest thing. Otherwise I get the last thing and have to figure out what happened previously, which is just a pain. This is perfect!
