    Anyone interest in computer hardware

    ...really? I love proprietary hardware! I especially love data acquisitions allowing for extended sensing of various variables, inturn allowing for advanced controls of mechanical equipment and robotic behaviors. The immediate future of cloud computing is another one of my current interests. Are you familiar with Microsoft Azure? I think everyone involved in infrastructure should be keenly aware of whats going on over at Microsoft... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JJ44hEr5DFE No problem for us "desktop" geeks, I say bring it on Bill! What's your opinion of this eminently emerging environment?

    Double Slit Experiment

    The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle suggests that we will never really know whats going on From Wikipedia: In physics, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on the phenomenon being observed. This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner. A commonplace example is checking the pressure in an automobile tire; this is difficult to do without letting out some of the air, thus changing the pressure. This effect can be observed in many domains of physics.

    I know we will beat the Giants this Sunday

    Have you seen the retro uniform the Redskins will be wearing this Sunday? In celebration of the franchise's 75th anniversary, the Redskins will wear a special throwback uniform for this Sunday's game against the New York Giants. The team will wear a white jersey with the 75th anniversary logo on it and gold pants with white and burgundy stripes down the side. The helmet will be yellow-colored with a maroon "R" logo. That's the helmet style the franchise used during the 1970-71 seasons. The legendary Vince Lombardi, who coached the Redskins in 1969 before passing away, was the inspiration behind the helmet. Lombardi pushed for the logo, which sat inside a white circle with Indian feathers hanging down from the side, because of its similarity to the "G" on the hemets worn by his Green Bay Packers for many years. The Redskins' first true helmet logo appeared in 1965. The helmet color was burgundy, as it had been since 1955, but the logo was a white and gold arrow that appeared on both sides. It was the same helmet design used by the Redskins in the 2002 season, when they wore throwback uniforms from the 1960s in honor of their 70th anniversary. The current helmet logo, of an Indian chief in full head-dress, was adopted in 1972. Sometimes, of course, there's a sense of superstition involved in the look of the team. In 2005, for instance, the team went 6-0 (including a playoff win) with its white-on-white attire late in the season. Michael Richman is the author of The Redskins Encyclopedia, a 432-page book that spans the 75-year history of the storied franchise.
