Picasa is a nifty program originally from Idealab and now owned by Google. The latest version has a facial recognition algorithm. Like most software it's not perfect, the false positives can be entertaining.

I could spend all day explaining why I go and trying to convince others they should go at least once in their lives. But I'll save you that and just show you my pictures. I didn't take many this year, not that there were not tons of things to take pictures of, each year I find I take less and less. I tend to find my time filled with having fun, not running around with a bunch of camera gear. Anyway here they are, enjoy.

Until next year.

Meme  
"Meme" Rules:
1.) Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
2.) Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
3.) Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on!

I like random chaotic things. I also like to lose icons on my desktop, it's like a game to find them. This image I took of a wall in San Francisco that was completely plastered with stickers. I like the way it looks on my computer screen. It's fun to stare at.

X4 (AMD)
q qx i7 (Intel)

Looks like AMD (X4 9600) is still king of the hill when it comes to price vs performance (only looking at floating point performance as it is what I am most concerned with)

The Motherboard prices are just the cheapest MB's I could find for that platform.
All prices are from pricewatch.

These numbers really don't mean that much but is meant as a guideline to determine a starting point when building a system.

VOTE TODAY!!!

If you don't you lose your right to complain. You probably lose a few other rights too, so go out there and protect them! Voting is the civil form of war, don't like someone, vote them out! And if you can't think of any reason to go out and vote, do it for this one. Other people have fought and died for your right to vote, so use it.

We have a party at work every once in a while, we call it a cube crawl. The name comes from the first time we had this party. Everyone decked out their cubes, and had alcohol at each cube. Basically by the end of the night people were crawling between cubes. It's not a company sanctioned event, we just use the office space as a place to have a party. There is a DJ setup and various folks play music. I was asked to play some stuff this time.

I didn't feel like actually bringing in things to play music so I made a set last night to play at the party. I thought I would post the mix up for others to take listen to if they feel like it.

The cuts are rough and didn't have time to polish. A jazzy drummy analogy breakbeaty kind of thing.

I got spore Monday and started playing that night, I haven't done much of anything else except work and play spore, with some sleep in between when absolutely necessary. I have to say I really like this game. The amount of creativity you can express in it is amazing.

Found this guy (or girl.. both??) the other day, brought him in and took some pics.. They protest (sounds like screaming) loudly when handled but calm down once on something stable. Not sure what they are called. They are built like a tank and amuse the cats to no end. They occasionally occur on the order of infestation.

--
California Root Borer
Prioninae Prionini Prionus californicus
Motschulsky, 1845

These long-horned beetles are nocturnal and most active at twilight and before sunrise. The larvae are root feeders and can cause serious damage to oak, madrone, cottonwood and many types of fruit trees including apple, peach, and cherry.

World Space Party
189 parties in 50 countries on 7 continents on 2 worlds

Yuri Gagarin was the first human to go into space on April 12th, 1961. The US Space Shuttle first launched on April 12th, 1981. Yuri's Night is like the St Patricks Day or Cinco de Mayo for space. It is one day when all the world can come together and celebrate the power and beauty of space and what it means for each of us.


I had much fun, it was nice to get out of the house, weather was perfect. Amon Tobin and Phil Lesh played.
