A quote on Computers and stuff on Technology

It should be for all technology… it sort of fits!

 Computers are like Old Testament gods; lots of rules and no mercy.
Joseph Campbell

Just remember…. just because it says its a USB port doesn;t mean its like YOUR USB port, nor does electricity come in the smae voltage in all countries….

When Is the US going to learn that the metric system is a lot easier on the brain and the wallet….  Not to metion that having a standard like everyone else is a lot easier to explain when you  mess it up!

Quote(s) of the Day

Just a virtual hug against worries and the world…..

When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
Hugh White (1773 – 1840)  He was the US Senate Pro Tem in 1840, and a politician.  I just liked this quote.

 

If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down.
Mary Pickford (1893 – 1979)  She was “America’s Sweetheart” in the days of silent films.  A famous actress, she saw talking films start but never made the transition to the “talkies”.  Her eyes and her body did all the talking in her silent films.  And she divorced, when it was just not done.

Coffee, anyone?

I just experience the joys of a good espresso machine.  I mean one of these big, fancy machines from Saeco, Jura and the like. Those machines who cost you half your monthly salary, but look cool and make great coffee.  The best is the freshly ground beans! I used to drink coffee with lots of milk to cover the taste, but now I am drinking it black and loving it!

I want one of those!

when your decisions come back to bite you in the butt

Did you ever feel like you made an irrevocable decision you are no longer sure about? Well, I did today…  I worked in the university system for about eight years, but two years ago I decided to leave the university because my career did not go anywhere, and I did not see a chance that it ever would. I became a school teacher, and I have been quite happy with the new life and never regretted the change.  Until recently, actually. I am currently visiting a friend who is a professor at a prestigious American university, so I have been talking to a lot of scholars and researchers. And suddenly, I am questioning my decision to leave again. Although I know that it was the right decision if I ever want to have a stable job and make money above the poverty line, which I do.  But I feel that I nearly envy my friend her lifestyle, her opportunities that being a university professor presents, and the intellectual stimulation that she gets. My life in contrast seems pretty dull.  And I am wondering if it was really the right decision that I made back then, two years ago.

 Did any of you ever experience something similar? How did you get over it? Did you get over it?

Sweet Home Alabama

We both like the song… But to simply put it, this quote just floors me every time……  And it is about the only movie quote I remember Verbatim all the time…

Con Air:

 Garland Greene: Define irony – a bunch of idiots dancing around on a plane to a song made famous by a band that died in a plane crash. (Sweet Home Alabama…. I can see the scene immediately upon hearing the song)

 Of course the character that got this line was a psychotic maniac and the only one OTHER than Nicholas Cage that you knew got away….

Chicago

“It’s 106 miles to Chicago.  We’ve got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark and we’re wearing sun glassess.  Hit it!”

— Jake and Elwood Blues, “The Blues Brothers”

-A movie where the impossible, improbable and the incredibel happen… And yes… its set in Chicago!

  

Bean

The Bean, or the “Big Shiny Thing” in Millennium Park is actually the sculpture named “Cloud Gate”, made of fortified stainless stell and designed by Anish Kapoor.

This shouldn’t be too hard to miss!

I can’t wait to see the pictures you have taken, and hear about your day trip to Chicago!  Bus ride and all!
