Math geeks are awesome. Shoot, I didn't even bother to memorize the equations for shuffling which is why I'm super calculus ignorant.

I was chatting with my son the other day about the recent firefighter LODDs (line of duty deaths) in Boston.  Running out of air was a critical problem (the SCBA that they use only has about 30 minutes of air).  I was thinking "huh, astronauts do EVAs in excess of six hours on a fairly regular basis... I wonder if anyone is using space tech for earth-based firefighting?"

Sure enough, the technology was being developed in 2001!

So why are more fire departments not using SCAMP instead of SCBA?

I thought about the price, but I suspect the $6k vs $2k would be less of a roadblock than the equipment needed to produce the liquid air to refill them. Also, seems the charge bleeds off in a day, so they need to be recharged/refilled every day.

Nice view while driving in to work last Sunday afternoon.  You know, I never get tired of seeing this.

Never get sick of the cross Valley view of the wasatch I have from my track home in the Jordan. It's not all bad out here.

For a fairly simple text-based game, this was pretty fun.  My score was 280779.  No, I don't know what that means.

Fountain in front of a library. Can you tell what it's supposed to be?

NSA and their rationalizations make me sad.  Legislators and their ignorance / powerlessness make me sad.

Wow, I never knew this place existed until it was recommended to me by a home care nurse. We needed to get a walker for my wife after her knee surgery, and Alpine quickly took care of our needs, finding the exact unit we needed. Their price was fair, and they were able to take our FSA card, too. I highly recommend Alpine for any durable equipment/aids that you need.

I stayed here while in Orlando on business (in town for a show at the convention center). There were some good things and some not so great things about my stay. The good: the staff was wonderful. This alone was enough to get an extra star on my review. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and helpful, and did the best they could to accommodate my needs. The room was very clean and well maintained, and the buildings were also well maintained. The grounds were very well kept (I even saw a gentleman touching up the trim on one of the buildings). The pool area was very nice and had plenty of seating as well as a large pool. It was also secured against small children with gates. The on-site restaurant was busy, but had great service and food. Watch out for the tatchos... they are addictive. There are an abundance of little golf carts cruising around the property, and they were all quick to stop and offer a ride if you were walking. The not so great: The TV in my room seemed to often have problems keeping a clean signal. Some channels would look good for a while, then get fuzzy and have the sound trail off into noise. All of the TVs in the suite were standard definition units, so HD programming was a little uncomfortable to watch. I know, I know, why was I watching TV when I could be outside enjoying the amazing February temps? The only other issue I had was related to transportation to and from the hotel. They don't have their own airport shuttle, so you have to use a local service or a cab for getting around. They do have shuttles to most of the attractions in the area, but the location, while it looks close to the convention center, is actually several miles away as there is no direct way to cross the freeway. Cab fare to/from the conference center was around $12-$15 depending on your driver. Cab fare to/from the airport was estimated at around $75, but the hotel could get you a ride via Caesar Transportation for $49 and Mear's Transportation runs a shuttle for $20 from the airport to most of the area hotels. Just don't depend on Mear's after midnight. Overall, I enjoyed the stay and would probably stay there again. Again, props to the staff as they were wonderful.

After having read other's reviews, we dropped in to McKay Diamonds in Salt Lake City today to see about getting my daughter's engagement ring resized. She had asked around at several other jewelry shops, and was getting quotes in the $45-$60 range, but they all wanted to send her ring out for several days. Understandably, she didn't want to be without any longer than necessary. I suggested we try McKay's out as I've often found great service at small locally owned independent shops. We were not disappointed with our experience. Within an hour, and for a competitive price, my daughter's ring was beautifully resized and now fits her finger perfectly. We were very well treated and left knowing that if we ever needed any help again, this was definitely the place to come.
