Martin turns 30!

I could poke fun, I could give warnings, instead... let me comfort you with this thought; you'll never be as old as I am. Thanks for inviting us to your kickin' party.. Carson had a blast.

When French people swear, do they say, "Pardon my English"?

This day in history

1889: Flag Day in the US

In the United States, Flag Day (more formally, National Flag Day) is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, though on June 14, 1937 Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday.


Funny and Scary:

Haffey came up big this past week with an OUTSTANDING link to a couple very useful sites:
  • Windows XP Post SP2 Update Pack, which let's you update your media with the latest updates to save time after building machine by not having to patch them. It also has some other add-on tools that are pretty cool.
  • The other site is tlbox, which is a great repository of various tools (in our link we have focused on System Admins, but there are others to choose from) that you can integrate into Firefox. Kudos to you, sir, for the awesome links.

I have some friends that are really into Guitar Hero, so the next two links are all about them. If you are into GH, you are welcome to enjoy them as well.

Apple iPhone... June 29th... 6pm... local time.

The Colts received their SuperBowl Champion rings last night.

Blast from the past:

I really wanna go see if there are some episodes of this I can get, I used to watch it all the time. heh

What disease did cured ham have?


What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

Midland

("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate. Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.

We're having a BOY!

Had the ultrasound today

and he showed his gender to the ultrasound tech


This one seemed just as uncooperative as Carson was during his ultrasound, but less dedicated to blocking the tech from telling if he was a girl or a boy. Now to start the name debate... heh.
