    I have been hired by a start up company that is using gasification to convert waste to energy. Looks like the company could take off too, so hopefully all goes well. If they do take off I could get to travel all over the world working on the machines.

    Does anyone know if there will be a live online stream of the race? I'm in Mexico City on business and I don't remember if they have done it in the past.

    Don't listen to Rihanna, but this guy put a lot of work into his cover. Not to mention, he has a decent voice too.

    Birds & Wildlife

    A couple pics from a day trip to the a bird sanctuary in the marshlands of the SF Bay Area. All criticisms can be explained by the fact it is a Panasonic DMC-FZ18. Zoom levels are 504, 317, 504, and 504mm respectively

    YOUR most reckless driving stories

    I just ignore opinion based reviews, if I like it then I like it. Just like anything else in the world, there is nothing that will please everyone all the time.

    Car Speakers - What's good value?

    I didn't upgrade my speakers, but my amp and tweeters by going to a junkyard and getting the amp, tweeters, and speaker grill from a 97 Taurus which had the Premium sound package. I bought it all for $65, compare that to when it was about a $300 option. Increased from 12 to 80 Watts RMS. Of...
