Love the video and all the others too. You are, however, crazy. Normal folks would use steel and most of your "pure wood" techniques will work great.

The discussion about Google's purchase of satellite company Skybox got very confused about where they orbit. They are LEO, which +Leo Laporte  should recognize, is Low Earth Orbit. They are about 100 miles over the earth's surface. To be geo-synchronious, the orbit has to be about 23,000 miles high. Lots of very cool satellites are in LEO

Hey Brad Cox, did you see this Apple announcement: "Craig Federighi, Apple’s senior vice president of software engineering, said it’s “like Objective-C without the bulk of C.”

Sounds like they invented Smalltalk.

I'd love this, especially for route planning around cities that I'm not familiar with. The routes that are good in general can be terrible during rush hour
 
Wouldn't it be good if Google map helps you to estimate traveling time at a specific time of the day instead of right when you search for it.

Allow me to search my driving time to the city at 8am in the morning so that I can plan to start earlier from the night before. I think Google and Waze would already have enough data to do this.

Terrible experience. I spent 7 hours in this shop getting a trailer hitch installed. I paid, in advance, to FedEx in the hitch, because they didn't have it in stock. This was on Monday. When I showed up for my appointment, on time, the part was not there. They did not have the part, they did not bother to ship it out until Tuesday afternoon. After charging me $65 for fast delivery. While I waited for the part, they tried to install the wiring harness. The service tech had no idea how to install it on my car, a VW Passat. He spent at least an hour looking at instructional videos. Today, I drove to buy a trailer, and by the time I got the the trailer dealer, the electrical wiring for the hitch had shorted out. The power wire had not been tied down, it moved against he turbo-charger, and melted the insulation. Which caused a short and blown fuse. It took over an hour for the experienced guy to replace all of the wiring done by the U-Haul tech.

I have been going to Dr O'Hara for more than 15 years. He is a great doctor. He has probably saved my life with his guidance. I do wish that the practice would not book as many patients per day, as it often feels as if the Doctor doesn't have as much time as he would like to spend with each session.

Bank is next to Greevy's Pub. Its very hard to see from Route 50 (aka Arlington Blvd) as it is in the shopping center. Its a typical local branch of a mega-bank.
