The Tale of a Bored Doggie

I don’t normally blog about meembers of my family – but occasionally the four legged ones do something worth sharing.
I am at a Diner having my breakfast after I had to run out this morning to get some personal errants done and this cake in from my wife. I had wanted to play the dogs in the yard before I leave but my wife (The Empress) decreed that leaving early and coming back early is more important. I guess good old Sparky here had a different idea.

A bored dog .... now happy


But The Empress had an answer for him … he is now duly punished

Error loading wiring Properties: property name is not unique….

This just came in via a feed from IBM support. I hope you guys subscribe to the support feeds as well.

Personally I never came across this specific error but as I do work allot in large, multi nationals this is a good one to squirrel away and keep in my back pocket.

Anatomy of a Science Fair Project | Guest Blog, Scientific American Blog Network

Not really technology content but I wish this kind of stuff had been around when I was a kid. I went to school in Austria and I attended a natural sciences high school so I had more classes in chemistry, physics, biology and (oh dread!) math. In those days Austrian schools did not do science fairs or prepare kids to present data and experiments like American schools do – unfortunately. I just wish I could have participated in a science fair once … how cool is it to work on something that not even your parents understand and then present it. I originally wanted to study astrophysics …. well, let’s just say that my aspirations were more than my math abilities could keep up with.

I just with more kids would do science and especially girls – there are not enough of those and I do not feel like parents encourage their kids enough. If I am going to keep on working in technology I need people to actually study and create new and exiting things for me to implement.

So – if you have kids, make sure they work on something that will help to support me in the years to come – you will have my undying gratitude and thanks for sure.
