SNL Online Video?

This question was asked a long time ago with no successful answer. I'm wondering if, since the world of online video has exploded so much, it can be answered now. Is there an online video anywhere of the SNL skit with Nicolas Cage and Julia Sweeney trying to name their baby? The transcript is here. I have searched and searched and have come up empty handed. Anyone? [more inside]

Stable email address?

What is the best way to achieve a stable email address, one that is not at the mercy of merciless ISPs? Does one use a domain or would gmail or a similar service be better? If a domain is the answer what are the dos and don'ts, how much should one expect to pay, are there free ones and are domains really stable in the long run?

An Act of Propaganda

Help me find a quotation. I have a vague memory of a quote from a respected literary figure (perhaps Orwell) which states that the name given to a piece of legislation will always denote the opposite of the purpose of the legislation. In effect, the names of our laws are propaganda. The USA PATRIOT Act springs immediately to mind. Are you familiar with this alleged quote? Who said it and what did they say? Or did my drug-addled brain make the whole thing up?

What's in an Icelandic sprite's name

How can I graciously remind someone of my name?

After much struggle, I am finally getting good at remembering people's names. This new skill has opened a new avenue of embarrassment for me, though. I now frequently greet acquaintances by name, but often when I do so, they can't remember my name even though it's obvious they want to. What's the most gracious way of reminding someone of your name while minimizing embarrassment all around? (posted by amtho's fiance)
