It's Mopar or no car, baby.  You can have the Mustangs and Camaros.  I'll take the Challenger SRT Hellcat in Sublime Green.

Classy music from very talented musicians.  I enjoyed this so much, I'm buying the DVD.

Great performance of a favorite PF tune.  Includes nice shots of Rick Wright, may he rest in peace.  Gilmour is PF to me.  Waters is a sad, bitter, old man.

This was a year after they played together on "live 8D" - the four of them - first time after over 20years. So I think peace was back with them then, including Roger Waters into it. Everybody wiser, glad to have ended quarrels, enjoying the moment. Gilmour and Wright seem to be happy, relaxed and real friends. And see the short live show of Gilmour and Waters together in 2012, no sad, bitter old man. They both have learned their lessons.

Another frenemy for HP.
Symantec's software will combine with HP's end-to-end service for Disaster Recovery as-a-Service solution.

I'm sad that live versions seem to omit the last verse.  Guess I'll stick with the studio version.

Elbert Guillory has it figured out.  I respect this man and his opinions.

Would love to have the sheet music for instruments for this piece.  My life would be complete if I could sing Bing's part with a younger fella around Christmastime.

David Bowie wasn't going to do this, because he hated the song.  They came up with his counterpoint song in about an hour!

Back when music was classy and produced by artists with actual talent.  Here's one of the greats.

Employment
  • Hewlett-Packard
    HP Master Technologist, 2013 - present
    As a multidisciplinary professional currently delivering consulting for Data Protector and StoreOnce inline deduplication technologies, I routinely utilize my expertise in storage, networking, system design, and physics to solve broad-based performance and compatibility issues. Although I am still an individual contributor, my work is now focused more keenly at the organizational and global levels. Whether it is through online publishing or one-on-one mentoring, I thoroughly enjoy sharing what I know for the benefit of others. That naturally spurs my desire to expand my proficiency even further. I am called upon for my expertise and unique skills by a plethora of HP organizations including Technical Marketing, Product Development, Implementation Services, Sales, Escalation Managers, and Channel Partners. I have also trained additional resources to support an ever-expanding BURA demand generated by the success and increasing adoption of Data Protector and StoreOnce. You may be wondering what it takes to become a Master Technologist at HP. There is quite a bit to it, actually, I was promoted through unanimous consent after a formal nomination and review process by global HP business unit leaders. The review was centered upon three main principles: Continuity & impact of contributions, breadth & depth of knowledge, and leadership My entire 25+ years of engineering were examined -- much of which elapsed prior to my current tenure with HP. I am humbled by the recognition and committed to learn even more.

Story
Tagline
"In vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others." --Deuteronomy Rabbah (c. 450–900)
Introduction
There are four Jim Turners in Edmond, OK.  I'm not the lawman, the doctor, or the lawyer.  I'm the engineer.  Although I have made technology my life's work, my family is what matters most to me.  My wife, daughter, and son continue to be a blessing beyond description.  I enjoy music and own Pink Floyd's entire discography.  Rush ranks up there pretty high, too.  Second place belongs to the greatest blues man the world has ever known:  Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Coming in at a close third place is Southern Rock a la Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshal Tucker Band, Molly Hatchet, .38 Special, CCR, and The Allman Brothers.

Fast, professional, courteous service. I was there when they opened at 7 AM this morning. Josh greeted me with a smile, offered me fresh coffee, and had my car serviced in under 20 minutes. Although today's service was on my fleet vehicle, my favorable experience will result in Josh and his crew gaining the business of my four personal vehicles. Thank you Josh for a pleasant experience.

Manager lady will say one thing then do another. She did not let my son know that the apartment for which he had placed a deposit was still being occupied by the renter/squatter on the day he was supposed to move in. A replacement apartment was offered but not held because he accepted a deposit refund. He was never asked to reinstate a deposit to hold the 2nd apartment. The total lack of proactive behavior doesn't bode well for the experience renters will have with maintenance, rent, etc. Their accounting practices are ghastly. Maintenance man returned from the bank while I was there and reported that the amount of money in the bag did not match the deposit slip. Meanwhile, the manager proceeded to refund a deposit using cash from her own purse, plus some cash from the rejected bank deposit, plus ten bucks from the maintenance guy. Now, does that instill confidence that your rent payments will be handled properly? Hardly. They are playing their proximity to campus for everything it's worth. Don't be fooled by manager lady's sugary sweet attitude. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Don't order delivery from these morons. The cannot understand a friggin' credit card number over the phone. I repeated the number several times -- slowly, clearly, naming each digit distinctly. No success.

While staying at Candlewood Suites in Sumter, I walked next door to order carry-out from Logan's. After the hostess guided me to the take out area, I stood unattended for over 10 minutes while servers came and went, came and went, came and went -- all walking right past me without any regard. I finally had to ask for a menu, decided on my selections, and yet the servers acted as if I weren't even there. I placed the menu quite deliberately on the counter right next to the cash register, inches away from the oblivious server, and walked out. Still nobody said a word to me. FINE. I walked back to the hotel, hopped in my car and took my business just down the street to Outback Steakhouse. When I travel on expenses, I order quite a bit at supper and tip at least 50%. Well, guess who enjoyed my money tonight? NOT LOGANS!

Don't bother going here after dark. By the time you make your way past the drug dealers and prostitutes, you'll find the door locked. At 8 PM on Monday. What gives? I figured it was locked for security because I saw people still inside. The morbidly obese security guard who was there overseeing things waddled a few steps toward the door and managed to squeeze out "WE'RE CLOSED" just before running short of breath and clutching his chest. Welcome to Kansas City, MO.

Our meals were excellent, and the service was top notch. I'm not sure I understand one of the previous reviews. If everything about the place is so bad, why would you eat there "10 times"? Not too bright, really. Yes, the servers wear T-shirts and drinks come in plastic cups. Joseppi's is an Eskimo Joe's franchise -- DUH! Sounds to me like someone had an axe to grind. Maybe a server who couldn't perform up to par and was dismissed? Anyway, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Joseppi's and will definitely return again soon!
