These commercials over at Rails Envy are great. Super entertaining. I actually laughed out loud. I found these via the Riding Rails blog.
Watched Star Wars – The Legacy Revealed last night on the History Channel. Interesting to hear correlations to other mythologies. I highly recommend this one.
Check out this interesting interview on Technometria with Joel Spolsky (from Joel On Software) on Hiring Technical Talent. I like Joel’s philosophy of focusing on the people causing great things to happen. Definitely a must listen for managers.
Dave B, the creator of the Guitars Suck video series has started the InstruMental Case podcast, a podcast dedicated to instrumental guitar music. The pilot episode (episode 0) has been posted and I have to say, I like it!

Jonna and I spent a relaxing four days in Vegas, and then a good deal of today getting our pictures up to our Flickr accounts. Each of us took a camera on this vacation. There’s a bigger post coming, but hey – I’m on vacation. Here are the links: Ron’s Photos and Jonna’s Photos.
