Testing the new Project Spartan web browser that was just released today by Microsoft with Windows 10 Pro Technical Preview (build 10049).

Facebook, Twitter, and Ello seem to work OK using Project Spartan.

However, Google+ does not work .  Message is:  "Google+ no longer supports your browser.  Please upgrade your browser."

Not surprised...

+Gary Oppenhuis You gave me the idea to look into Office 365 for my new Mac Pro.  I am starting the final stages of my degree and I needed something a bit more in depth than Google or the MS Online stuff.  I really like 365 so far, it has a lot of features but not swimming in garbage.  I like the idea of a monthly payment, although I think my company will pay for a full suite, but I like the free upgrades and it's not tied to any firm.

Glowing cloud formation at dusk in Arizona. These eastern clouds were reflecting the setting sun in the west. Looks a bit menacing in the photo, but actually was quite benign and beautiful.

Bram Tchaikovsky / Strange Man Changed Man

Late 70's power pop. Some good tunes on this, including the title song, Girl of My Dreams, and an energetic version of I'm a Believer (via The Monkees).

So sad to see this once excellent Little sushi restaurant increase in size and decrease in quality. Portions have gotten smaller and quality of fish (once very good) has gotten poorer. An ominous sign was seeing the owner making the sushi (and not doing a very good job at it). We miss you, Max (former sushi chef here)!

Great service, and always very honest, straight-forward and friendly. I drive 20 miles out of my way to go to Community Honda because of their customer service, even though there is another Honda dealer a few miles from my home. Matt Krugman is an excellent in the service department, promptly and professionally keeping you informed of status, options, and pricing.

Friendly and fast service. Portions are huge and satisfying! Tea and soup a bit weak. Recommended if you are hungry and in a hurry (but you may want to take your time and enjoy the large meals)!
