Another long week ends - I was in Vista M-T-W-Th, lots of calls and meetings and things to report and things to prepare, and man it was nice to come home and get to work. Weird huh? Yet today was incredibly productive, made it back through my inbox (took care of all those little "thanks for this" replies, as well as a few things of substance), cleared my desks (physical and virtual), and even had some good think time. And now it is on to a weekend with nothing planned, what a luxury! Will I work on work all weekend? Maybe. Will I sit by the pool and work on my tan? Possibly. Will I ride in the heat? Most likely. Will I blog? Of course!
This is the best possible news; BP appear to have [*finally*] capped their spilling well. Whew. Of course it is too late, huge damage has been done, but at least now things can get better instead of worse.
I haven't been following the iPhone4 antenna issue closely, but as always the PR disaster comes from the cover up and dishonesty instead of the original problem. My high-level arms-length take is that Apple has screwed this up badly, and it isn't over yet...
Check out this old Cola ad - wow (click to inspect). "For a better start in life, start cola earlier!" Who knew? Maybe this is my secret... :) Whenever I see things like this, which of course caused no comment at the time, I wonder what things from our time will be regarded like this in this future? How about all those weird sports drinks?
From a friend: picture of the devastation after today's 3.6 earthquake in Washington DC. Fortunately no one was hurt.
Never say I don't post useful stuff; here we have the periodic table of swearing. It isn't searchable unfortunately, but I don't think I see "Karumba!" in there anywhere...
Have a great weekend!
