Disney technology in action

Lady night Disney creatively changed the look of the famous "golf ball" at Epcot, also known as Spaceship Earth, and announced that they we going to be open for extended hours May 24 - 25, 2013.
Sally I was in the restaurant when this happened. :(
Even at this size Mike is still not scary.  Click here for a video of the announcement.

Someone has had one to many

It would seem the whoever wrote this sign had already sampled the drink before writing the sign. Last I knew it was spelled "original" not "oringinal".

Greetings from 40,000 feet.

Just a quick post to start the week with a sunny view. I took this picture as I was winging my way south and realized there is a lesson in this as well.
No matter how dark and dim the day, the sun is always there and, if you are willing to rise above it all, it will all look much more sunny.
Have a great week!

New additions to the family

For the past two years I have been wearing Vibram Five Fingers shoes on a pretty regular basis. My family all laughed and snickered at the "geeky looking shoes". I had three pair and I love each one. If it were up to me I would wear them all the time but customers frown on such strange footwear when you walk in with these on your feet.

But now I have a flashy new pair that look great and feel great.  But the best news of ask its that my wife can no longer look at my fret and grumble about how dorky I look without me dating the same thing to her. Yep, she is now the proud owner of her own pair of Vibram Five Fingers Seeya shoes. In the words of a friend of mine, "She now has her own toe cleavage."

Oops it happened again.

In a new addition to my series on public computer failures, how about the health food machine that suffers a blue screen of death in a very public way.
Seems to me that this its not a very healthy message. It says that the predict just isn't good for toy since the computer running it has crashed already.

 But then loading linux pin it might only lead to more junk food and a desire to buy beer.

A portal to the past

I went in to a client suite the other day and as I sat down I took a close look at the hardware they had assigned me to use while I was there. I felt like I had been transported back 15 years.
I honestly haven't seen a tube type monitor in at least 5 years, and that was when I was throwing our the ones I had in storage!

Happy April 1st.

Traditionally this is the day celebrated by pranksters great and small. The one day that you can pull a prank and not be ostracized for doing so.

Today Google announced that they were closing YouTube and launching a site called Google Nose.

Today my wonderful wife fitted up the Wii and loaded Wii Fit for her daily workout. Today Nintendo got in on the fun and pranked her as well.

Well played, Nintendo, well played.
