Random Musings

I love March Madness. This is almost as good as college football bowl week(s). So much unpredictability. Even if you're not a basketball fan, you've got to love it. I'm very lucky to have had a great group of friends growing up. I still talk to all of them today and a couple of them I see almost everyday. Most people can't say that. If you don't have an iPod, get; you won't regret it. I wish I would have purchased some Apple stock when it was hovering around $14. The sad thing is, I knew they were going to do what they're doing now. I just hate spending money. Three day weekends are awesome.

The joy of a day off

I took a non-holiday day off for the first time since the birth of my son over 6 months ago. It's strange to go almost 20 hours without checking e-mail or voice mail and somehow feel almost guilty about it. Sometimes you need to clear your head, though. The sights and sounds and smells of the local Livestock Show and Rodeo can quickly make that happen quickly, especially if you start to think about the insane amounts of money you're spending.

March Madness

One of my favorite times of the year is upon us. The NCAA basketball tournament is one of the greatest happenings in the world of sports. Even casual and non-sports fans participate in office pools, etc. Even though I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable, I usually do terrible in these pools. There are also great games taking place over the next three weeks. Can't wait.

The wonders of air travel

It's amazing to think that I had meetings in 3 different states in the same day. Commercial air travel is a true marvel (or, at least, it is to me). If only I could get internet access while in the air. I've heard Boeing was working on it, but I have yet to see anything come to fruition. It boggles my mind to think that thousands of flights are managed 24x7x365 with almost never any problems. If any virtual team of people gets things done, it's air traffic controllers.

Random Musings...

It's always interesting to see what motivates people. Sometimes it's not what you would expect. I really enjoy Skype the more I use it. I can say the same for Firefox. I can't say the same for the Windows operating system. Don't purchase a plasma display of any kind for any reason. I don't care how good you think they look.
