And the house wasn’t even wrecked too bad this morning!
Now, (Blah) it’s Monday.
Have a good week!

So she got in the water, grabbed onto my wetsuit and finally touched a stingray. Then the first girl wanted to get back in too.
So, I had these two little girls, one under each arm, with their tiny little masks and fins, their knees up to their chests, holding onto me for dear life, while I swam around with them and the stingrays. They were screaming through their snorkels the whole time. I asked if they were OK, they screamed “YES!” I asked if they wanted to get out, they screamed “NOOO!”
I had a blast, and I felt like such a hero taking care of them. They never let go of me for a second. When they got out, they ran to their parents yelling how excellent it was. Later their parents told me they were surprised the girls got in with the stingrays, surprised they stayed in the water so long, and surprised they touched the stingrays, and that I did a really good job with them.
Later, they rode on a jet ski, with their father driving, they came cruising by, screaming again.
Roller Coaster Screaming!
Yesterday, for work, I had to call the phone company again. I cannot understand how they can exist and be so grossly screwed up. I call, get transferred, get disconnected. For over an hour. Finally I’m so upset and angry that I’m raising my voice to the operator. I even tell myself beforehand, “No matter what, you will not get angry!” They always drive me beyond that point. I am sure I will be dealing with them again today. When dealing with our phone company, the problem never ends with you hanging up the phone, problem resolved. It always ends with you getting disconnected, and deciding not to call back.
This isn’t much of a post.
February is turning into a pretty good month, at least I think I’ll make enough to pay the bills. I really like my job. I just wish it would get busier. I’m a good technician, I think the problem is that I’m a lousy salesman.
Anyway, Have a nice day!
Tomorrow night she is working too, there is a big antique map show she is working at. I’ll be there, hoping I don’t see any maps I can’t live without!
My favorite part was Medusa, turning all who gaze upon her to stone. When someone turns to stone, they make a pretty cool statue! I can’t really put my finger on what I didn’t like about it. It just wasn’t that great. One good thing, it seemed like it was a short movie.
I’d say rent it, and if you didn’t spend money to see it at the movies, good for you!
Radio communications devices can either send or receive wireless signals at a given moment, but they can’t do both at the same time (hence the regular use of the word “over” to signal the end of a transmission). But a team of electrical engineering grad students and professors at Stanford has done what researchers have long thought impossible by developing a new antenna setup that allows wireless signals to be sent and received at the same time.
That may not seem earth-shattering–cell phones allow simultaneous two-way communication after all–but given the fact that the breakthrough essentially doubles the speed of communications networks immediately, it’s actually somewhat huge.
When a wireless transmitter is sending out a signal, that signal is million of times stronger than any incoming signal; as such, the transmitting signal drowns out any incoming communication. So the Stanford team devised a means for a receiver to screen the noise from its own transmitter out, much as our brains can screen out our own voices when we are both speaking and listening (this is explained in much greater detail in the video below).
As a result of this noise canceling the receiver can hear incoming traffic clearly. That means in a Wi-Fi network, for instance, computers could both send and receive packets of information simultaneously, potentially doubling efficiency in a given time frame (at least at the moments when you are both sending and receiving signals). The possibilities don’t end there. Check out the video below for more.
It made me burp. Quite a bit.
I am pretty sure I bought this before I got married, I can’t imagine The Wife buying it.
I wonder what I’ll do for dinner tonight. I think I’ll conduct experiments comparing the belch production rates of Hormel Turkey Chili VS the No Beans VS With Beans.
I’d have to run to the store though….
Maybe I’ll just have a sandwich.
