First Day Back

Not too bad, all in all. R. had a great morning, in fact, and most of the kids got right down to fact, I think the adults had a harder time than the kids.

Anyhow, this is just the dumbest thing I've ever heard. The only thing I can think of is that maybe they think people are too dumb to know where Anaheim is, so they added the Los Angeles to the name.


This, on the other hand, is very, very cool. I remember when the rovers first landed, the talk was that they would only last 50 or so days, I think. It's been a year, and they're still trekkin' on (pun intended).

Which, I guess, means the lesson NASA and JPL have to learn is how to get the darned things onto the planet without crashing into the ground, blowing up along the way, or whatever happened to the 2 Mars probes we lost prior to Spirit and Opportunity landing.

Go rovers!

Oh, and TiVo finally released TiVo to Go today...except that they haven't finished updating Tivo Desktop for Macs yet, so it's essentially useless to me, as my desktop has extremely limited hard drive space, and, you know, being a desktop...not so much with the "to go" part. :-(

I figured they would be waiting until the Consumer Electronics Show this weekend in Vegas, since they didn't get it released prior to the New Year like they'd said, but, hey -- if ya got it, go for it, right?

But, speaking of CES...I get to go walk around the display floor! Yay for nerd heaven. :-) Since my grandpa has an electronics firm, my mom got free passes, so I'll be heading up to Vegas early Saturday and staying until early Sunday at the Aladdin. Happy nerd, here, in case you couldn't tell....
