Staysea bought me an iPad for my birthday and it came on Friday. I have to say that it is a dream come true. This is the device I saw people on Star Trek using. It is a higher resolution screen than my first 3 computers and does more in color no less. We’ve come a long way and I can only imagine what our children will be using, because I can tell you that I never thought that the things I saw on Star Trek would be part of my every day life.
Posted from my iPad.

There is an effort being made to make a registry of Linux users, in order to get some sort of estimate as to how many users there are out there. I’ve been using Linux since 1995, primarily as a server platform for routing my home internet, and hosting my mail and web services. If you’re a user, you can help out and register yourself.

Just thought I’d point out that it is a geeky time and won’t be again for a long while.
“Kitten is First of His Kind to Receive Promotion” – Daily Planet News
An early morning press conference was held this morning by Admiral Zookeepith to announce the changes.
“First I’d like to congratulate Duncan, he’s the youngest of his kind to ever be promoted to Captain! So congratulations Captain Catastrophe!”
“As part of his new position Captain Catastrophe will receive his own ship, the Starship Total Destruction! He’ll embark on his first mission with Captain Underfoot of the Starship Move-It and Princess Fur Flub of the planet Blob. Their mission: To create chaos and destruction throughout the galaxy.”
“Captain Catastrophe has worked hard to earn this new position, many months of hard labour rocketing objects off of shelves, counters and sometimes conquering great heights in order to complete his missions. In order to qualify for this promotion Captain Catastrophe had to prove his worth in the field by mastering survival tasks such as hunting and fishing as well as the ability to take down anything in his path and battle stronger larger opponents. Captain Catastrophe accomplished these tasks with great skill and fierce strength. We wish him luck in his future missions.”4 comments
This is super COOL! This site has listings of SR71 Blackbirds that have been decommissioned and are sitting out on display. But the really cool part is that he’s linked those locations with the satellite images from Google Maps, and you can actually see them scattered all over the US. Why is the SR-71 so cool?
Here is the summary via Wikipedia
The Lockheed SR-71 Type A, unofficially known as the Blackbird, is a long-range, advanced, strategic reconnaissance aircraft developed from the Lockheed YF-12A and A-12 aircraft by Lockheed’s Skunk Works (also responsible for the U-2 and many other advanced aircraft). The legendary “Kelly” Johnson, in particular, was the man behind many of the design’s advanced concepts. The SR-71 was one of the first aircraft to be shaped to have an extremely low radar signature. The aircraft flew so fast and so high that if the pilot detected a surface-to-air missile had been launched, the standard evasive action was to simply accelerate. No SR-71 has ever been shot down.
