Have Trouble Sleeping?

At CES I always look for advances in tech gadgets that can help me sleep better.... check out some of the cool things i found from sleepy bluetooth headphones to an alarm clock that wakes you by smells.

You spend up to 8 hours a day sleeping; Likely much more than you spend with your family or friends or doing things like watching the latest star wars movie. When I hit CES every year, I look for the latest in technology advancements that will help me to sleep better, longer and wake up more rested. Check out what I found this year for….

......Canada... Making the rest of you look bad..... <3

"A recent study labelled you “The Freest Country in the World”, three of The Economist’s top five most liveable cities on the planet are in the Great White North, and, wait, what? Grain-guru Jim Murray has chosen a batch of Crown Royal rye as the year’s best whisky on earth? What the hell is going on over there?"

A good question.... One of the oldest torrents being actively seeded is from 1993 (an ascii version of The Matrix, appropriately enough). It got me thinking about how easy it is to hoard data these days and inspired tonight's question; What do you think is the oldest data that you still have easy access to and why do you still hold onto it?
 
Geek Question of the Day: So I heard today that one of the oldest torrents being actively seeded is from 1993 (an ascii version of The Matrix, appropriately enough). It got me thinking about how easy it is to hoard data these days and inspired tonight's question; What do you think is the oldest data that you still have easy access to and why do you still hold onto it? This isn't about old computers, just the bits we drag along from one machine to the next. Data and programs count of pretty much any variety. #gqotd

Communities I Manage (Stuff I Like)

Quotes I Like:

"You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights" ~ Maya Angelou

"Determination is born out of purpose...knowing that you are gifted for something and this something must be attained. It is never enough to rely on luck or natural talent. You must, above all, believe in yourself, face your goals, and then fight as if your life depended on it"

Be who you are and say what you feel, cause those who mind.. don't matter.. and those who matter... don't mind... ~ Dr Seuss.

" It is what it is, it's not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is" ~ Nicole Kidman

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible." ~ T.E. Lawrence

"Progress is not made by early risers or hard workers, but by Lazy people trying to find easier ways to do the same." ~ Henry Ford

The Pyramid hotel in Vegas. Large, fun and lots of slots. But the rooms are small and likely will be part of the slanted pyramid experience. Good for a budget trip!

When traveling it can be nerve racking to visit a foreign stylist... But not here. This salon is amazing! They take time to get to know what you want, listen and make you beautiful! I fully recommend going by if you are trying to find a place to get pretty!

Large theatre righ tin the garden district. If you are coming here for an event check out the parking on Victoria st across the street. There is underground parking available which can help in the winter time.

A large airport as an alternative to New York. No wifi. Yes seriously. You can try and access it from outside the unite club lounge, but otherwise expect to pay for it.
