“I like to look for things no one else catches. I hate the way drivers never look at the road in old movies.”

This is a link to a neat blog post from a guy who has worked or interned at Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo. He talks about what each company is like and compares the working environments. I thought it was really interesting.

“Lord I groan, Lord I kneel
I’m cryin’ out for something real
‘Cause I know deep in my soul
There must be more

Lord I’m tired, yes I’m weak
I need your power to work in me
But I can’t let go, I keep hanging on
There must be more”

(from “There Must Be More” by David Ruis)

There is a new couple that started coming to our Sunday school class a few weeks ago, and we had them over tonight for dinner and to play Catan. Lindsey found out that they played when they first came (I think she asks people when she meets them :-), so we thought it would be a fun chance to get together. Lindsey came over, too, but unfortunately Randy was out of town. So there were five of us, and we played the base game with Seafarers. The new couple has only played the base game before, so we didn’t want to add too much all at once, but they really enjoyed the Seafarers expansion (and Dusty won the game!), so next time we’ll have to break out the Cities and Knights. It’s always fun to find new people to play Catan with!

I don’t usually see a lot of television commercials because we fast-forward through them with our TiVo, but last night I happened to catch a new mac vs pc ad from Apple that was absolutely hilarious. It’s about the User Account Control feature in Vista that I complained about earlier this week. When we saw the commercial, Joy turned to me and said “hey, that’s the thing you were talking about in Vista that you said was really stupid, isn’t it?”. Why yes, yes it is.

You can check out the commercial by going to the “get a mac” ad page and clicking on the “Security” commercial.
