This is pic of my complimentary pint of Guiness after my tour of the Guiness factory in Dublin, Ireland in 2001. Amazing museum...in the shape of a pint of guinness with a 360 degree view bar at the top...I highly recommend
What have I done? I guess I won't be getting much work done on Thursday or Friday...but what else is new? March Madness consumes me just like every other male in the U.S. And this year I get to watch all the games I want online for $20. (Actually its only $10 for me cuz my buddy Tony and I are splitting their 2-for-1 deal) I'm just watching a press conference right now and I'm getting excited. Its crystal clear...no lag...perfect! Can't wait for tomorrow. Gotta love the fact that I'll be here by 9:05am not to get started on experiments, but to catch the tipoff of just about EVERY game.
Sing with me (in the tune of Kip): I love technology, but not as much as you, you see... But I STILL love technology... Always and forever.
UPDATE: Having full access to the tourney like that was FANTASTIC! I'm doing this again EVERY year hands down. Kip was right, the world wide web IS great!!

Wow...I'm speechless. I don't think I will be in attendance though. I might be tempted to go if they offered some door prizes (like VHS copies of 'Log Jammin' or some Creedence 8-Tracks) and an open bar full of Caucasians and Sasparilla. And of course I would enter the costume party as the "oriental"...just walk around peeing on rugs. Should be quite a weekend. The Dude abides...
