I remember three things about GRiD.

1. I was working for Radio Shack circa 1990 when they bought GRiD. The market for hyper-expensive magnesium laptops was pretty poor, so RS started rebranding black plastic Panasonic laptops with the GRiD logo. It still flopped.

2. On one of the early shuttle flights, one of these things scrubbed a launch. The shuttle had three built-in computers and one of these for a backup. With a couple of minutes left, the GRiD started reporting that its calculations disagreed with the other computers. They could either disconnect the GRiD or scrub the launch, and they went with the latter. Turns out the GRiD was the one making the correct calculations. Years later, that laptop met its end with the Columbia disaster :(

3.After GRiD died, a big electronics flea-market in Fort Worth was selling piles of GRiD-branded laptop bags and CD holders cheap, as Radio Shack had greatly overestimated their sales. I wish I had one now :)
Mr. Ellenby founded Grid Systems, where the Compass was produced. It went on to become a tool for big corporations, government spies, White House officials and astronauts.

Russians would love it if the big pile of Drumpf would win. If they can get into the state election systems, he might. Truth is, this prob. has a pretty decent chance of success, given elections systems history

The investigation comes amid heightened concern over Russian hacks of Democratic Party organizations.

It appears that Donald Trump might not be running for president if he just checked snopes. Eric Trump is proclaiming that his dad is running for president because of a bunch of stuff that didn't actually happen!

"At the same time, he opens up the paper each morning and sees our nation’s leaders giving a hundred billion dollars to Iran, or he opens the paper and some new school district has just eliminated the ability for its students to say the pledge of allegiance, or some fire department in some town is ordered by the mayor to no longer fly the American flag on the back of a fire truck. Or, he sees the tree on the White House lawn has been renamed “Holiday tree” instead of “Christmas tree.” I could go on and on for hours. Those are the very things that made my father run, and those are the very things he cares about." -- Eric Trump

Shakes are too expensive and they mix them right in the waxed paper cups that they are served in. Anything scraped off is your bonus fiber for the day.
