Hey, what's up? Camping was lots of fun. We got to hang out with a few of our friends while we were out there and that made it even more fun. Sadly, the sun didn't show very much so we didn't even go in the water, but that didn't keep us from eating cheeseburgers on the beach or going to Stumptown Brewery or Rainbow Cattle Company. I spent all day yesterday playing WoW on the SDMB guild server. Home Sweet Home.

This is a pretty cool article linked on MetaFilter today about '47 Cheval Blanc, which is supposed to be one of the best wines in the world. Interesting, if you are in to wine. Also, the author used the phrase "zaftig beauty", which I think is a great descriptor of some wines. Then again, he also used "Forrest Gump" to describe the title wine.

This is a very cool story from NPR's Science Friday today on monkeys using robotic arms using only the power of the mind, ok, well using the electric impulses of the mind, but still. Interesting, if you like robotic monkey overlords, or marshmallows.

Finally, as much as I hate ASUS, I really want to get a motherboard with Splashtop, because it seems pretty neat. It would be especially cool for laptops.

Thank god it's Friday. These one day work weeks are KILLERS!

So it sounds like Splashtop is just a vastly expanded BIOS. An E-BIOS, if you will.

Cool, and about time.


('Course, with SSHDs comine within reach of the average man soon-ish, boot times will be a thing of the past.)
