Roots of the router (the backbone of the Internet)

Great story:

The creator of the multiprotocol router reflects on the development of the device that fueled the growth of networking.

William (Bill) Yeager is 66 and still gets peeved when someone trots out the Silicon Valley fable about how the founders of Cisco invented the router. He was the guy at Stanford University that made it happen. The history of Network World roughly parallels the commercialization of routing, so we tracked Yeager down for a glimpse into the scene back then.....[click on link above for the rest of the story]


A coworker had this in her cubicle and I thought it was cool.

"Apprentice" auditions in Honolulu April 1

I don't think people from Hawaii fit the model for this show but I'm sure they can find some contestants...

"Apprentice" auditions in Honolulu April 1

Advertiser Staff
Hawai'i contestants will have a shot at joining Donald Trump on "The Apprentice" when Honolulu auditions are held April 1 at the Hawai'i Prince Hotel in Waikiki.

If you're game, show up from 9 a.m. to acquire a wristband. Interviews with casting crews will begin at 10 a.m.

Candidates should complete an online application, downloadable at at, and bring the form to the open call.

According to an audition advisory, prospects should be able to take risks, think creatively to be a leader, spring back after making mistakes and have the tenacity to succeed in a cutthroat environment while remaining focused and feisty. It's also helpful to have the ability to swim against the tide.

Trump said in a statement, "People who want to challenge themselves in the ultimate business competition should definitely come apply."

Filming begins this summer.

Auditions will continue through April 8, with stops in Chicago, Hartford, San Diego, Washington D.C., Las Vegas and Phoenix. Other cities on the current search include Seattle, San Antonio, Tampa, Memphis, Denver, and Sacramento.

Funny joke from a beautiful woman - From Esquire magazine

As told by Leslie Bibb

A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months. One day, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were there by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side.... You know what?"
"What dear?" she asked gently.
"I think you're bad luck. Get the f*ck away from me."

The wait at Macaroni Grill is CRAZY!!

Waited for over 2 hours for a table there on Friday night! Good thing it's at the mall and we could cruise at Borders. Found some interesting reads for my girl friends - Why Men Love Bitches: From Doormat to Dreamgirl-A Woman's Guide to Holding Her Own in a Relationship and Fate of Your Date: Divination for Dating, Mating, And Relating
It was pretty hilarious reading!

Food was pretty good. Interesting how the ladies sing Happy Birthday in Italian. Dessert was so-so. We had the fried snickers thingie. Might be because I was super stuffed. I would go back but not on a Friday or Saturday...

This can't be Eddie Van Halen!

He is looking nasty!
