Old Time Phone Exchanges

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

Remember those old-time phone exchanges? Like on TV shows they would give out 555 numbers as Klondike5…..

I think we need to bring these back! Here’s a list of the old exchanges: ourwebhome.com/TENP/Recommended.html

My Phone number starts 905 Faculty9 …. I think I’m going to try and convert everyone’s numbers to this as a memory device.

Anything you can do I can do better

Hilarious German Mercedes ad with two-time world champion Fernando Alonso and teammate and points leading rookie Lewis Hamilton. (You might also want to know that Mika Häkkinen is a retired two-time champion who spent most of his career with Mercedes)

More travel pictures, more important

Please take a look at Lindz and my pictures from Boston, it’s a great town. I was in town for this year’s international WebCT conference Blackboard World 2007.

Last year’s WebCT conference was in Chicago and recently “Schmap” let me know that my pictures of the Double Door bar (the center of grunge rock in Chicago) had been nominated for a contest to be included in their third edition of our Schmap Chicago Guide. Not surprisingly I was so flattered to be nominated that I allowed “Schmap” to use my Creative Commons licensed image commercially. Again, it came as no surprise that my two images where accepted.

Full credit to “Schmap”, calling it a contest is a good way to get free images. They even included in the E-Mail the sent me “If you like the guide and have a website, blog or personal page, then please also check out our schmapplets – customizable widgetized versions of our Schmap Chicago Guide, complete with your published photos:” Another success, because here that guide is.

So here they are:

Lindsay and I left bright and early this morning to arrive in Boston. I’m here for a week-long conference, Lindsay’s here (over the weekend and a bit) for a good time.

The pictures are flowing into Flickr. Here’s as up on Bunker Hill:
