Hmmm. Now to see if I pay enough attention next time.
If your flash drive or USB plug doesn’t have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector. It has a line across only one side, which should always be...

While, the article is interesting, head to http://andywoodruff.com/blog/where-to-hate-daylight-saving-time-and-where-to-love-it/ to tinker with the maps based on sunset/sunrise times and DST going away or being on all the time.
 
Daylight saving time was created to benefit Americans, but not every part of the country is affected equally. Within the Eastern time zone, for instance, the sun rises a whole 40 minutes earlier in New York City than it does in Detroit. To illustrate how daylight saving time impacts sunrise and sunset times around the county, cartographer Andy Woodruff published a series of helpful maps on his website.

So...maybe I'm late to complain about this this but is Google kidding when it doesn't allow me to access all the photos I have uploaded to put in a post?  I don't have them in Google Drive, which seems to be the closest option.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Anyone else having the same experience?

Story
Tagline
A tool without a process is just a tool. Be part of the process, not a tool.
Introduction
I enjoy running, cigars, hard sci-fi and learning about new technologies. Although I can't fathom the math, I enjoy reading about both quantum physics and cosmology. I have an extensive Thinkgeek Wish List because I enjoy having my desk covered with toys and other people distracters. 

I'm process-oriented person who believes more in how we do things than in the tools we use to do them.

I worked in the Information Technology field in the Air Force (AFSC - 3D072 "Cyber Systems Operations") for over 22 years, supporting various Intelligence Agencies for 17 of that. Experienced in Operations Management and Portfolio/Project Management. ITIL v2 Foundation certified.

Any and all opinions/posts/thoughts are mine and not those of my employer and should not be considered reflective of said employer.
Bragging rights
Retired from the U.S. Air Force on 1 Oct 2011 after 22 years of service.
