week ends

Dinner, dessert, gossip and games. (If you guys are reading this, thanks -- for not lynching me!) Not a bad way to end a week.

(But of course not the best way to begin the weekend, if you're planning to get up in the morning for your sole source of weekly exercise and it's already too late.)

The new Google Earth

For one, it works in my mac. And then -- it must be that I haven't played video games for a long time -- it was quite exciting to see the 3D perspectives of the terrain. Google Earth Community and Google Globe sound interesting too. Unfortunately their resolution for the local neighbourhood is quite bad. (So also for my hometown.)

Maybe I should compare the photos I took from the satellite plane on my way back from LA with the perspective images in GE...

Home is where...

Home is where you get waken up by a cold-call.

Back in Champaign after weeks of warm (sometimes wet) Californian weather. (some photos.)

Hope they find my lost luggage...
