painters were where?

This is one for my friends back in CT. Note the wires coming from these street signs. All signs like this light up at night. Not all of the area has signs like this, but the major parts do. Very nice. You can easily tell where you're going, day or night.

Look at the top right of the dump truck. It says "painters were here". Must be some kind of gang that's really into Jackson Pollock.


I just tried Google Earth for the first time. Wow, what a nice piece of software. It's very Cool McCool (grin). The 3D views are great, it's super-easy to use and it's actually useful. And it's free which is nice. For twenty bucks a year I can plug my GPS into it. Hmm... maybe later. 🙂

For fun I tracked where I used to live and then where I now. It zooOOOooms up a few hundred miles, traverses the east coast and them zooOOOooms back to the destination. I know.. sounds weird when I describe it like that, but that's the only way I can say it in words.

Some of the zoom views are like the stuff I saw at the Boston Museum of Science when I was a kid. And now.. it's on my computer.

The future is cool, what can I say. We're living in it right now.
