Awesome.

Hint: Look 'up' to start and look for the growing bright spot. :-)

This is a good article about Worcester and the role it played.  I've lived in Worcester 1989-1995, and again since 2002.  One thing the article didn't go into detail on is the resurgence Worcester has seen in the past 20+ years - especially the past 10 or so.  *HUGE* changes - lots of derelict old factory buildings removed and replaced with new facilities - St. Vincent's downtown, the whole second campus area for WPI (focused on biomed), massive expansion at the UMass Medical Center (the one mentioned in the article), massive expansion of the Worcester Centrum/DCU Center, razing the old Galleria/Fashion Outlets and re-opening long closed streets and sightlines, the re-opening and rejuvenation of Union Station (and relocating the bus depot adjacent to it to create a travel hub), major expansion of the Port of Worcester, booming growth along Shrewsbury Street, a complete change to the Kelly Square area, etc.  

Yes, there are still blighted areas, as with any city, but I think Worcester is in much better shape today than it has been in decades.
A central Massachusetts city enabled the author’s ancestors to move into the good life of the middle class. That move is more complicated now.

This one looks like how I spec'd mine - black paint with black leather and black headliner - all blacked out.  Seeing this makes me feel better about my choices - not that I felt bad, but there is always a little trepidation when you haven't seen it executed.  I like it.  

Mine's a 5-seater, so no 3rd row.

I'm going to a social at Tesla Dedham on Sunday and I'm hoping they have a Model X there I can sit in.  That'll cover the last of my concerns.

The video was entertaining – and shows you that physical security is very much the first layer of your network security. If the bad guys can touch your hardware, it is pretty much game over.

All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

A geek named MegaZone.
Introduction
I have a mononym.  My full legal name is MegaZone, which I use as a last name.  I have no first name, so I use Mr as a placeholder when one is required.

Let's see if Google suspends my account for not having a 'normal' name.  (They did, but I got it back.)

The location is great, right in the heart of things. The room itself is nice and well appointed. The bathroom though is small and cramped. There is not enough room just for basic toiletries while getting ready as there is nearly no counter space.

The Contemporary Resort is a Disney classic. I've stayed there in the past, but this trip I was just there for brunch at Chef Mickey's. It was a good meal and a great time, as always. If you get a chance to stay there, especially if you have kids, do it. The monorail running right through the hotel is a special experience.
