Virtual Monty Dawg

I've been missing old Monty lately. Feel free to spend some time with him if I'm not around...

Good Fortune


The other night we went to PF Changs and at the end of dinner we got the standard shrink wrapped fortune cookie to snack on. I wasn't expecting much but for the first time in a long time my fortune made sense.

"It is time for you to learn to dance in the rain rather than wait for sun."

Well put and words to live by.

Google Doodle Honors Jules Verne

Today there was a somewhat notable Google Doodle. The Google.com landing page has this animated picture of the ocean where the letters in the work "Google" represent the windows on a submarine. There is also this interesting control on the right that lets you move the "ship" up and down; left and right. Pretty cool especially if you take into account it is not done using flash and it works on the three browsers I tried. It's really amazing what can be done with css and javascript these days. Even the dials were nicely animated as you changed the level of the ship. What I found really interesting is that you can line up the sea life on the ocean floor to fill the windows in a more traditional Google Doodle way... You have to go straight down to see the windows line up with the sea life.
