Being Poor

If any of you have not yet read John Scalzi's "Being Poor" post, this is a good a time of the year to reset it.


  1. What does it mean to "reset" something in this context?

  2. "Reset" is often used by Jim Rome, a sports radio host of a nationally syndicated talk show, to reference a topic or thread from a previous show. On the Rome show, topics are never forgotten, and from time to time, they are "reset" (brought back up) if they are relevant to the day's discussion, or if Rome wants to re-introduce the topics to new listeners.

    Hope this clears up my usage!
