History of the Internet

Since it seams that Net Neutrality is going to be an issue again, I thought that I would post this little video that I found on Youtube.

A few things to remember.  You are watching this on the "Internet", so unless you are in the UAE or South Korea you may want to hit the play button, and a few seconds later hit pause.

This will allow the video (it's HD) to "buffer".  That allows the video file information to load in your computer.  Should take no longer (in the US) than 10 minutes (unless you are using a dial up connection).  This will improve your viewing experience.


As it's description read on it's page, "History of the internet" is an animated documentary explaining the inventions from time-sharing to filesharing, from Arpanet to Internet.
The history is told using the PICOL icons on , which are available for download soon. On you can get news about this project.

Winter Roads


Winter Roads and the Long Cold Road Trip

Driving in the winter seems to always feel a little different than summer driving.DSCN0008_1152For email  It may just be the fact that something as basic as getting a flat tire, or any mechanical problem can be so much more serious in the frigid temperatures of the frozen tundra of Wisconsin.  With temperatures throughout the entire northern a below zero levels, any event that requires one to be outside with steel tools just does not sound good.

The roads of DSCN3624_1141For emailwinter also convey a different message that screams "Respect Me".

Good drivers are always appreciated.

Good vehicles are quite mandatory.

Good roads are nice

Good company helps

Good luck is nice too.
