Elon's been a busy guy.

Transparent wood...could make for interesting buildings.

Welcome, but leave your guns on your side of the border. 
Another step closer to the White House for Donald Trump, another loud call to move to Canada from the rational half of our friends South of the Border. Following Drumpf‘s Super Tuesday onslaught yesterday, many Americans are showing interest in our immigration policy.

My inner geek is whispering in my ear to go buy a hammock just so I can try this out.
Use the hammock hang calculator to find the right height to hang your hammock (as well as see the load factors!). Also available as a mobile app.

Hololens sounds like it could be a winner. 
Microsoft's HoloLens adds to reality without disconnecting you from it.

Geek and computer guy in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Introduction
I'm a dad and a computer geek living in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  

Our summers typically hit 40C and our winters often hit -40C so I like to spend as much of my winter vacation as possible walking that beach pictured at the top of my profile.  That strip of sand is located in  Nuevo Vallarta just north of Puerto Vallarta.
