For the movie buffs:

The Exorcist in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies.

And for the Monty Python geeks in our midst:

Estimating the Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow
Hashing out the classic question with Strouhal numbers and simplified flight waveforms.

My stress level

would be SO much lower if I stopped trying to do the right thing and just started blindly doing the easy thing…

(don’t ask – you don’t want to know! 🙂 :\)

‘Nother blog-de-vouz

Just got back from dinner with this guy. Poor guy spent the weekend trying to track me down but work kept foiling his attempts – and i’m SERIOUSLY bummed about it. Ian and Jay were in town for the weekend but I was stuck working for the better part of it so tonight was the first time I had to meet up with them. Had a great time hanging out with them (though they got to endure me being all wound up after work and CHATTY)… Really wish I had been around to hang out with them more… Guess its just another excuse to head north – already owe this guy a visit too… 🙂

On another note, this weekend I did get the honor of going to a ceremony at the Unitarian church in San Francisco for Matt and Brian and a number of other couples. Was really neat to be a part of Matt and Brian’s commitment and to see all of the other happy couples talk about their commitment. And on top of it all, it turns out that the first marriage license the pastor had signed in QUITE some time was for one of those couples – it turns out she had decided to stop signing licenses for straight couples until gay couples had the same rights. Chokes me up just thinking about it..

Next weekend he’s in town – kevin is really exicted to have Rodney and Greg in town.. Watch out…

The Graphical User Interface

Just found this site thanks to The Tin Man

GUIdebook: Graphical User Interface gallery

Really interesting to go back and see what the Mac UI and Windows used to look like… I’ve used every one of those Mac OS UIs and worked on ’em in some way or form since System 6.0.8

Just had to share! 🙂

Get There faster!

Driving in to work today I was doing my usual surfing of conservative radio stations to see what kind of BS was being shoveled. Funny thing was though that when I hit one of them the hosts were talking about the the same issue in Tennessee that my previous post was about and the announcer was talking about how absurd it was. I think the direct quote I heard was ‘Its like outlawing people with brown hair’. WOW… You would have NEVER heard someone on one of these stations saying something like that even a handful of years ago. Kind of impressive to see people reaching these kind of conclusions..

Kind of reminds me of a Friends episode where Joey and Chandler were looking at Richard’s (Monica’s ex) video tape collection when they found a tape presumed to be a sex tape with “Monica” written on it… Slowly Joey put each piece together and figured out the deal – Chandler, getting impatient with how long it took Joey to reach the logical conclusion, yelled ‘Get there FASTER’…

This whole set of gay issues sort of feels like the same kind of thing. The country is slowly working out the logic in their head and realizing it all makes sense and isn’t a bad thing at all.. But MAN. I find my self wanting to scream the same thing…

Get there FASTER
