If you are (I know I am) then you’ll be happy to know that there’s now a single location to go for all of the SysInternals tools. It doesn’t look like there’s new versions of them all, but there’s at least now just one location to go looking for them.
I’ll definitely be there – and I’m probably bringing the robot kit. You can find information about where and when at http://innovationcamp.pbwiki.com/ – don’t forget to vote for or create a session! There are four tracks, and right now it looks like you have a choice, but that can’t last for long. I’m going to hold out just a bit because I do so many presentations, but if you haven’t called a session before Thurday, I’ll show no mercy!
See you there!
If you’re old like me and remember Memeograph machines, this should be something interesting. And if you’re a spring chicken and don’t – look at what your elders had to put up with in school (at least on a smaller scale.)
Just checking – yesterday was Alan Turing’s birthday! I missed it with all the other stuff going on, but it’s a cool thing to think about. I spent a lot of years considering Turing tests and such, so it’s interesting to see the day come by. Now I have to watch out for Vannevar Bush, John von Neumann, and Grace Hopper’s birthday (I remember when she passed away – I still try to carry around NanoSeconds. You may have heard me talk about them.) We really do stand on the shoulders of giants.
When I was back in undegrad in Aeronautical Engineering, one of the professors at my campus had a great little car. I finally found it (I think) at the Tiny-Cars post on haha.nu!
This was the coolest thing ever, as it was as long as a regular car was wide, so parking was super easy – parallel parking was non-existant. You just drove it up to the curb. It was protected from the elements, and you had a nice, easy entry and exit. For today’s green tech push – why not release an update version of this?
