Oops! I Did It Again…

Mephistos ThemeI know, terrible reference to a questionable song, but I did do it again.  The it being changing the theme on the blog.  The one that was in use before was seeming to me at least a little crowded and didn’t necessarily really fit.  And today, I happened onto a site that was using this theme (or some variation thereof) and with a bit of research, I found Anders Noren’s website and…  Continue reading “Oops!

Stars

Milky WayI was thinking the other night when driving out late away from town on one of the few clear evenings we have had of late, how many more stars that I could see.  That brought me to the some memories of when I lived in the mountains of Virginia and I could see perhaps around a million of more stars that I was seeing the other night… Continue reading “Stars”

Google Earth Pro – Free!

Google EarthGoogle Earth Pro has been made free by the fine folks over at Google.  Note the word pro in there, as Google Earth itself has been free for basically ever anyway.  It is a pretty cool tool to play around with, but outside of the professionals that will be using the pro components it is really that much advantage and can get kind of cumbersome compared to the regular Google Earth.
