Well, the global warming thing is no chance game anymore - only the Bushies have yet to figure it out. It is neat to see what 7m of water can do the coastal communities of England. Hey Phoenix? Are you getting this?

Post Auction Hang Over Blues

Posted by Kyro Sk On 5 comments

Well, that auction on Saturday was a total waste of time. The first of the AMD machines went for well over $700, followed by basically the rest of the machines in a lot for $650 a piece (and that is with nothing included) which eliminated any further bidding on towers, it was a joke.

Other notables:
the 19" flat screen went for more than $300
the three 17"s went for more than $200 each
the BROKEN 19" went for $125 IIRC !!
faux leather chairs went for more than $60 and guys were taking groups of 7 or 14.

It was chaotic (there was not enough room for cars outside let alone adequate space for people to view the items for auction or even see the auctioneer booth),

overcrowded (at one point, behind where my father-in-law and I were standing, a Corman park park police woman came in a threatened to shut the whole affair down in violation of the fire code for access to exits),

and poorly organized (half-way through the computer stuff, there was a seguey to cars, then another switcheroo to some hair salon stuff).

At one point I asked a bid spotter for clarification on what items were going - and then was reprimanded by the auctioneer for having my info wrong when I was trying to grab the wrong item! I was furious - but supressed my rage and continued to swap comments of ridicule about the high price of goods paid by idiots who robbed us of our opportunity for good hardware for cheap.

I was amazingly pissed off for the rest of the day. But what did I get? Some good headphones for Morgan and I to use for just normal use (my Sony V-700's aren't great for Warcraft). And I might get a line on one of those pistol mice units from Orange yet too.

Time to brush up on you latest advancements in nanotechnology.

Nano circuits.

The not so big picture on nano.

And not last, but last from me is one of the first working nano machines.

Link(s) of the Week

Posted by Selbonaut On 2006-03-22 3 comments

Hey all, I know it has been some time since I have posted my link of the week, so I have a few to catch up on.

Yesterday I stumbled upon a site that talked about some new weapons that the U.S. military is testing. The technology behind it is really interesting, but truly unfortunate as to its use.

Here is a couple links to some guns.

Here is a link to the technology of the grenades that the six-shooter launches.

I am not sure if you all are up on what Tom Cruise has been up to with his Scientology stuff, but here is a link the latest stunt from him, and the episode in question, it is the full episode so you are going to need 22 minutes to watch it, but it is well worth it.

That is about all I have for now and will wait a bit to post some more.

So who all is actually coming with me next Saturday to this auction? Why don't we all meet somewhere around there - say my folks place at around 10am - and then perform operation "Auction Swarmer" to capture as much enemy matériel as possible?

PS - I bet we meet a higher level of resistance from auction trolls than the marines did in the Samarra region.

Ahhhhh the 80's!

Who says you can't relive the 80's through commercials?

My personal favorite is the Cherry 7-up bit with Matt LeBlanc looking younger and dorkier than normal.

Starship CD

This is certainly the most expensive CD player I've seen in a long while. I personally like the way that it incorporates a vacuum tube stage to return an analog warmth to the digital reproduction. Maybe if I ask nice, CPM will let me get one, ya think?

It looks like it is now open to the public. So we better be down there promptly at 10:30 in order to get some good stuff. Pass the word along to anyone who needs a good machine.

Hope this is the Future

I hope that this is not just a tease and that they are actually working on developing this. But I am not sure that I will see anything like it in my lifetime in house.

And Crackberry users rejoice

I know alot of you wern't affected by this, and it didnt really affect me, but it is a HUGE win for RIM. The whole case in my opinion was stupid and we should have sent in Dick long before the lawsuit ever got to where it is.

I am not sure how many of you have been following it (or aware), but the only country that NTP was actually able to get thier case to court was in the US. Every other country that they tried to sue RIM it was thrown out.

NTP attempt to get them shut down NEVER would have happen. The system that RIM has developed is the MOST secure system out there, and because of that most of the nations aggincies (us and canada) use it for communication. The RCMP (would assume CSIS), FBI and others are all set up on the Blackberry devices, so even though it did get pretty far in the courts, it never would have been alloud to shut down.

I am just glad to see that RIM walked out of this alive and kicking. A little poorer, but kickin none the less.

It's all in the picture
