I know it's out of season, but I found the quote the other day and felt like putting it together with an image... so there you have it.

Best I can do at the moment.

In my rather extensive collection I only had perhaps 3 air-to-air to air lightning strikes. Perhaps in the spring...

Yeah, I know I should be studying, that's been the mantra for the last two and an half years. I'm getting weary of all this study at the moment. Mrs looked at me tonight and said "you need to get out and do something fun. Go ski."

Fancy that. Ski.

Last year at this time I had just come back from some fabulous skiing in Italy, and with new skis and boots that I bought this fall, I've not been out once.

Maybe the first weekend in Feb. That's the first time I don't have weekend classes, and I'll probably be climbing the walls by then.

I also wanted to play for a moment on my new laptop. One of the reasons I am quite happy to keep it is how it makes my photos look. One quick tour through my website and I was sold.

Then, again, I had to be sold, because the old Dell continues to deliver the BSOD, although I can get 2 or 3 hours of use out of it before it dies. I'm using it to review some old review CD's that I got from my daughter that will only run on Quicktime 4, which dates back to something like 2003.

Someone suggested that I get a Mac.

I though about it, but this laptop is primarily going to be used for business, and my business software (especially tax planning) is not made for a Mac. Besides that, all of the other software investment that I have would have to be repurchased for the Mac, and that would be just a tad unrealistic, especially at this time. It would add thousands to the price of the machine where this one has been load and go.

A final parting quote:

"Computers are incredibly fast, accurate and stupid. Human beings are incredibly slow, inaccurate and brilliant. Together they are powerful beyond imagination."
attributed to Einstein, but he died before computers really evolved.
