Street View

Google Maps is getting better.
Check out Street View.
The little Camera Icon shows cities where Street View Data has been uploaded.
Yesterday I had to go to a Little League meeting. Well it was located in a Church in Norco that I had not been to before.
When I punched up the address, there was a picture showing just what the Church looked like, how the driveway was situated. Very Cool.
Here's an Uber dork in an orange Jumpsuit that explains how it works.
There are bound to be more sightings soon.

I'm not sure how useful Photosynth is, but I am sure that we will see more of it.
Worth the download of the .exe file.
I like the VAB collection.

Ascii Force

Now you can watch Star Wars from the command prompt.
Somebody took a lot of time to do this, and the Ascii art is pretty good.
Go to Start > Run.
  1. In the Run box, type “cmd” ( without the quotes ) and hit OK to open the command prompt windows.
  2. Within command prompt, type “telnet towel.blinkenlights.nl” ( without the quotes ) and hit ENTER.
  3. Sit back and watch the show. Oh ya, grab some popcorns also.

Here is a link to a nice post on the assembly of Space shuttle Discovery.
It's on a BMW motorcycle forum.
