This should be pretty useful.

Third +Robert Cringely column on Mainframe2.  A company to watch?
Addition of Google and Microsoft to the Mainframe2 list gives this little company an huge lead in cross-platform cloud support for desktop applications.

Too neat to not share publicly :)

I think +Anna Eddelbuettel may not want me to post this publicly but here is her U16 team, fresh after wiping an opponent 6:1 (with Anna netting a clean first-half hat-trick) and finishing the Las Vegas tournament with 3 wins and 1 loss.

My new best friend.  

We're having weather here that makes you think you're starring in the classic "Fargo" movie...

(That said, maybe I should clarify that we had the cheap little 2nd-hand blower for a few years, but it has been coming in extremely handily in the absurd weather of the last few weeks.)

Went running today and once again enjoyed the +Pandora channel for Talking Heads -- because it seems to always include a variant of While My Guitar Gently Weeps.  I left to a George Harrison variant, and when I was done 10 miles later I finished with a Peter Frampton version.  I am also partial of a Jeff Healey version.

That said, my favorite is probably this 'all star' version from an Rock&Roll Hall of Fame induction -- make sure you watch the whole thing for the Prince solo.
