Very cool, indeed!

Kinda proud.
 
We’ve agreed to purchase the entire output of the 240 MW Happy Hereford wind farm outside of Amarillo, Texas. The wind farm will provide energy to the regional grid that serves our Mayes County, Okla. data center.

This agreement, part of our quest to power our operations with 100% renewable energy, is our largest commitment yet—we’ve now contracted for more than 570 MW of wind energy, which is enough energy to power ~170,000 U.S. households. Learn more about this agreement and how it's structured on our blog: http://g.co/wpf7

Heartwarming story involving baseball, Google, the Yankees and A's and a 13 year-old kid.  Happening tonight.  #nicksfirstpitch

I've in the process of building a "gaming" computer from scratch with my son, Cal.  So far, it's been interesting, fun and, yes, sometimes a little nerve-racking. I've found that making sure that we don't work more than 45 minutes or so at a time helps with the stress ;-)  Cal caught me coming back it after we stopped, though, and called me out on it, saying that he wanted to make sure that when we were done that we could say that we worked together on it the whole time.  I really appreciated him saying that!  Sometimes he's more mature than I am.

We've pretty much been following the instructions at http://lifehacker.com/5828747/how-to-build-a-computer-from-scratch-the-complete-guide, adding to that with various YouTube videos, online manuals, etc, when the parts we bought don't match the pretty pictures.

 Its good, we're not making it to use at the moment, but to sell. final goal: start a company. how about the computer you're building?

Gotta love "The Shack"! The basic frozen yogurt is very good here, but the main thing here is the multitude of do-it-yourself toppings. They have all kinds of candies, cookies, syrups, fruits, etc. It can get busy on a hot (or even not so hot) day but it's worth it.
