Vanishing Point pictures
Pictures from the Vanishing Point event have been posted in the gallery [here](http://www.marius.org/gallery/v/events/2007/vp/). Go solve puzzles! Lots of pictures from the fireworks, but video would have been far better. Luckily, [Brandon LeBlanc](http://www.mstechtoday.com/) posted video on his [hive.net blog](http://www.hive.net/Member/blogs/the_wow/archive/2007/01/27/Video_3A00_-Vanishing-Point-Finale-Event-at-Gas-Works-Park.aspx). Good luck!
Vanishing Point Game: Event 4 – Seattle, WA
So the 4th event of the [Vanishing Point Game](http://www.vanishingpointgame.com/) was held in Seattle tonight. If you haven’t been following, the game is a viral marketing/buzz building event sponsored by [Microsoft](http://www.microsoft.com/) and [AMD](http://www.amd.com/) for the Windows Vista launch (this Tuesday). [Jenn](http://realmccoy.spaces.live.com/) (who happens to work on a part of the Windows Vista marketing team) called me […]
European project named MARIUS?
Hmm, Gizmodo reports that the European Commission is launching a program to deliver test messages to cell phones by helicopter. It’s named [Project MARIUS](http://www.gizmodo.com/gadgets/cellphones/european-marius-project-to-massdeliver-text-messages-via-helicopter-231522.php), which apparently stands for “Mobile Autonomous Reactive Information System for Urgency Situations”. Try saying that all in one breath.
So, as I mentioned yesterday, my 10-year high school reunion is coming up. What I didn’t mention is that I’ve been roped into the planning efforts. Scary. Someone else on the “planning committee” (aka people we found first) posted a pretty interesting blog entry on her [hesitation in coming to the reunion](http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=27802207&blogID=219199230&Mytoken=BE5ED018-FF2F-467B-BC434B6371B5150445295258). (Good gracious, I […]
High School Reunions – 10 years!
In scary news, my 10-year high school reunion is coming up. Since 1997, I’ve hosted the [Conroe High School Class of 1997 e-mail list](http://www.marius.org/chs97/), and I’ve been receiving more and more updates as of late. The page has pretty much been static since 1997, with the exception of a few changes and additions of user […]
Cingular SIM Unlock: We’re almost there
So, the last few days I’ve been posting about my lack of success in getting my phone SIM unlocked so I can use it while traveling internationally. Well, as of yesterday, I’ve made a fair amount of progress. Let me back up for a moment. When I started all of this, I had an Audiovox […]
So, I bought Viva Pinata today at Best Buy. All I can say is: Woohoo!
So, the past two days have brought us more snow and ice in the Seattle area. I present to you my nominations of “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly”: The Good: Can’t get out of the neighborhood, so we work from home. The Bad: Can’t get out of the neighborhood, so we get cabin […]
A new record: 2 hour commute
So that was less than stellar. Another snow-storm hit the Seattle area this afternoon, and the drive home took just shy of 2 hours. Quite amazing, considering I live around 8 miles away from my office. I wish I had taken some photos with my cameraphone — but I was too busy not getting rammed […]
Cingular SIM Unlock: the story continues
So, I got a text message about 9:45am this morning from Cingular, asking me to call them as my unlock code I had [previously requested](http://www.marius.org/2007/01/03/cingular_sim_unlock.php) was ready. Woohoo! So I call them. > M: Hi, I got a text message asking me to call you to get my device unlock code. > C: [puts me […]
