End of an Era: Sony to stop manufacturing 3-1/2” Floppies

Really?  Come on, own up!!!  Who’s still buying these in 2010?  I can’t remember the last time I saw a computer with a floppy drive.  Although I have to admit a family member recently tried to give me a file to work on that they had put on a floppy, much to my chagrin and…


Indian Restaurant: Madras Cafe – Pompano Beach, FL

I haven’t written about my road trip Indian restaurant visits in a while.  So I’m here in Ft. Lauderdale, FL for an Angelbeat event tomorrow and thought I’d try one of the local Indian establishments and tell you all about it.  Rather than looking up restaurant reviews to choose where to go, which is what…

Unified Communications helping Road Warriors: My laptop is now my phone!!!

My teammate John Weston has created a couple of great screencasts talking about how we use Unified Communications (UC) in our day-to-day work to keep us productive, especially when we’re on the road.  Everyone in the team has a UC phone number which means no matter where we are, if you call our phone and we’re…


Indian Restaurant: Bombay Grill – Chamblee, GA (North side of Atlanta off of I-285)

I haven’t done any posts recently on Indian restaurants as I’ve not been on the road as much as I usually am.  Since I was out to dinner the other night at one of my favorite Indian Restaurants in the Atlanta area, the Bombay Grill, I thought it was time for me to do a…

Hand Made Lamborghini: Built In the Basement

This has got to be the most crazy or most impressive project I’ve ever seen.  Mr. Ken Imhoff saw the movie Cannonball Run seventeen years ago, I saw that same movie and in my case it nearly took away my will to live J, in his case, he fell in love with a car in…


Drought in the South: Lake Hartwell on the Georgia/South Carolina Border

I was up in South Carolina with my daughter last weekend visiting with my ex-in-laws at their condo on the lake.  I hadn’t been up in a few months and was shocked at how low the lake had dropped.  They had been out of town for a few weeks during which time the lake had…


A Big Mac and Wireless Access Please: McDonalds Internet Lounge

Last week I was looking for a quick bite early one evening and decided for some reason to go to McD’s.  I don’t know why, maybe it was a burger and fries craving and I just didn’t want to drive anywhere.  It’s probably the first time I’ve been to one in years, so I don’t…
