    Do our logins from other Gawker Media sites work here?

    Thank you!

  3. Xkeeper says:

    I certainly hope you realize that the room you linked to is completely full.

    And whatever happened to the “just enter the name/password you want” option?

  4. Vilgrom says:

    It works!

  5. Ben Popken says:

    Oh darn, I did not realize Xkeeper. I will extend by 30 min or so and open up 2 more rooms to deal with overflow. Thanks for the heads up.

    Eh, I feel strangely smug and self-satisfied that I received my commenting privileges by submitting an appropriately witty comment… or at least, an appropriately obscene comment at a time the approver was napping.

    Regardless, yay new people!

  15. M3wThr33 says:

    Wow. This was unexpected. Thanks!

  16. levenhopper says:

    Ya, I agree with OnoSideboard. Now I don’t feel so special…

  17. Mike_ says:

    Free, huh? How much do these normally cost?

  18. con40dmitri says:

    Yea, agreed. (w/ mike)

    Charging for plastic bags, utensils, etc. is the law in Taiwan, and has been for several years.

    Even if I didn’t get charged for plastic bags or a discount for bringing my own, I still bring my own. A sturdy canvas grocery bag holds more weight, doesn’t rip and is more comfortable to carry than a disposable plastic or paper bag.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t found a satisfactory solution for produce. I still have to use those small clear plastics bags to store and separate the tomatoes, peppers, etc. so the cashier can
    weigh them.
