Upload an image from your computer and choose how many sheets wide
you would like your poster to be once printed.
Once you're happy with your selection, you can download the PDF file containing your newly created images and print each one massively blown up, resulting in a
huge pixel poster to stick on your wall ...

Tennis for Two, the first computer game, built in 1958 by William Higinbotham. The game itself is what could be considered a spiritual predecessor to Pong. It's not technically a computer game, because it actually ran on analogue technology, not on a digital machine, such as a computer

Global Warming

Who is Kidding Who ???
   
      


Here in NM where I live, the middle of Feb. is usually when we start seeing the first signs of Spring.

Lately the news has been filled with reports about "Global Warming"
Maybe the scientists should learn from us old timers. Weather runs in cycles. It always has and probably
always will.  :)

Brief synopsis: global warming causes new ice age in the northern hemisphere.

Alright for you down in Texas: just a bit of snow on your cactus. Up here we lose the gulf stream and end up with the same weather as Norway.

Brrr...

How long is your WebWait? In other words, how long does it take to download your web site into your browser? WebWait is a web site where you can measure the speed of other web sites. It times precisely how long the site takes to load and render in your browser, including any images, stylesheets, and Javascript.
Use WebWait to benchmark your website or test the speed of your web connection. Timing is accurate because WebWait pulls down the entire website into your browser, so it takes into account Ajax/Javascript processing and image loading, which many other benchmarking tools ignore.

i typed in yahoo.com and it took 0.88 secs...
Of course this depends on the time of day/night and your internet connection.

These pictures remind me of when I lived in Clovis, NM.   I remember the snow there.
