This weekend’s NHRA event: Neff and Nobile

Here’s a link to a bit of coverage from ESPN.

Shame that they didn’t include the race that Nobile and Connolly had. It was fantastic.

I thought for sure it was over for Neff. That NAPA car had the look off the line like it was ready to march but hazed. Capps did a nice job peddling it.

Congrats to Neff. He’s really good but somedays it’s better to be lucky than good.

If you’re looking for a job in racing…Jimmie Johnson Racing is hiring…

I’m not looking but…this is an awesome opportunity.

Asus Tranformer and GPS

They have to be kidding?

This is a pathetic story. A dongle?

Google pays $52 million for abandoned paper mill

See here.

Make perfect sense to me. Paper production needs tons of water. Data centers need tons of water to cool the servers. Paper production needs lots of power. Data centers need lots of power.

Analysis of Amazon’s e-book strategy

Good read. See here.

Obviously given my job, I have a vested interest in the success of the book publishers. I find it hard to believe that they can’t set the floor price for their product.

The Dukes of Hazzard – Video of all the ‘General Lee’ car jumps

Very cool. This was originally posted here.

As the man said:

How many times should they jump the General Lee in an episode? The correct answer is “more”.

The comma

The comma. It seems like such a simple thing. But like everything else in the English language it is not.

The Nest…for the nest


Just picked up a couple of these for the new house.

I’m pretty geeked to see how these plus some other work we are going to be doing will affect the heating and cooling costs of house. Give it’s size those costs are substantial (at least they are to me).
