A Noun, A Verb, and 9/11

It's two hours to 2008 and I wanted to make my 100th post of the year before I go out. As you may or may not know, I've recorded (almost) every E-mail and IM conversation since 1998. Now that I've put them on a single hard drive, they're searchable to me and me alone.

So here's some history for you. As the world burned on September 11, 2001, I contacted my now-roommate Dave in Washington, DC. Was he hurt? Did he hear anything? Is the capital shut down? Apparently it was more important to discuss our AIM icons.
