New Computer Today??

I received an email from Dell informing me that my new laptop was to be delivered today… 5 days early.  But in the end, it’s up to FedEx.  Hoping… I can barely post today.  4:30 and no FedEx.  Oh well.  I’ll do a ‘cheater post’ today.
Quake may shorten days
Earth’s days may have gotten a little bit shorter since the massive earthquake in Chile, but don’t feel bad if you haven’t noticed.  The difference would be only about one-millionth of a second.  Richard Gross, a scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Canada Flintridge, CA, and colleagues calculated that Saturday’s shortened the day by 1.26 microsecond.  A microsecond is one-millionth of a second.
An earthquake can make Earth rotate faster by nudging some of it’s m the mass closer to it’s axis, just as ice skaters can speed up their spins by pulling in their arms.  Conversely, a quake can slow the rotation and lengthen the day if ir redistributes mass away from the axis.
I thought I felt dizzy!!
Welcome to the city of Google
Topeka’s mayor says the city shall be temporarly be referred to as Google, Kan.- the capital of fiber optics, in an effort to persuade the Internet giant to test an ultra-fast connection in the state capital.
Mayor Bill Bunten issued the proclamation on Monday with no objections.  Bunten said that the decree was mainly for fun, but that he hoped it would set Topeka apart from other cities vying for Google’s fiber optic experiment, including Grand Rapid, Mich., and Baton Rouge, La.
City Attorney Jackie Williams said the city could not be temporarily renamed, but that the proclamation asking for it to be referred as "Google" was OK!
OK…. Not a "cheater post"
Crappy post but new computer will be arriving soon.  This one is driving me crazy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry about the computer not arriving buddy, that’s really too bad. I know when you’re on an old computer the time really can drag while waiting. That earthquake shortened the days? Even if by a tiny amount that’s incredible…what power! Nothing else to report my friend…may your new machine arrive soon.

    I think that’s soo not right to tell you it’s coming and then NOT! What ah let down huh? Is there a tracking number? It is funny for Topeka to say it is only temporary naming it Google to persuade them. Huh, why would they need lightening speed there ennaway? Jist ah thought is all. Maybe to email 50% of the schools lightening fast to tell them they will be closed next school year! Or to git that pizza in 20 minutes instead of 30. Jist ah thought. Have a good night Mr. Bob!
