In our modern world, our work means something more to us than it did to our ancestors. It's not just about survival or necessity anymore, but also about finding a career with meaning that brings satisfaction to our lives. It's not always easy to find fulfillment in a career, but here are some nudges in the right direction.

Very cool.  I've been a fan of artist Albrecht Dürer since college, mostly for his wood carvings, and particularly for Knight, Death and the Devil  (http://goo.gl/P5ct7Y).  What I didn't know is that he's also famous for the best known of the 4x4 "magic squares", Melencolia I (http://goo.gl/V0iHuK).  It's also brilliant that Dürer integrated the year he created the square, 1514, into the square itself, which means it's 500 years old this year.

Our world is filled with indescribable beauty, both man-made and natural, and it's hard to say whether a single lifetime would truly be enough to truly experience all of it. Most of us will probably never see everything that the world has to offer us, but it's worth a shot! Here are 40 incredible places around the world that are definitely worth adding to your bucket list.

Pretty straight forward directions on configuring VBox to talk to GNS3.  And since you'll have both VirtualBox and GNS3 running on top of your native OS, this is also helpful: http://forum.gns3.net/topic2873.html

I love old bikes because to me they're like art, but also because you can see how little they've changed in even the last 100 years. In the 1940s and 50s, the French "constructeur" Camille Daudon was making some of the most beautiful ultra high end "bespoke" (meaning "custom") touring bikes that would ever be produced (see www.reneherse.com/Daudon.html for just one example). This following model, however, was something a little more unusual. Not only is it a tandem cyclocross, but it's a tandem assisted by a 4-stroke Ducati 48cc engine designed & produced before Ducati ever made complete motorcycles. Oh, and it's got drum brakes & originally had twin gas tanks. A sweet ride.

Sometimes I get this feeling that so much more hangs in the balance in life than we ever might imagine. And it scares me every time I get a glimpse.

Haha. Nice. Like when Deckard hits Roy over the head with a pipe and Roy just says, "Now that's the spirit!"  Yeah, though I think I'm thinking of more than just what's on "this side of the veil".

Arthur C. Clarke was one of my favorite authors from an early age. From his 2001 Odyssey to Rendezvous with Rama to Cradle, and others, his stories fanned the flames of my imagination from the time I was 13 until my mid 30s. By today's technology standards, these stories might seem passé. But when one considers that Clarke in 1945 was the first to propose the idea of the communications satellite (http://goo.gl/gKTJ2u), and that nearly 20 years later in 1964 he predicted the things in this video, the clarity of his vision gains significant credence, especially considering the predictions voiced here came fully 30 years before the Internet became mainstream.
