Clean Fun
A friend of mine sent me a link to a fun game. Kid safe and a pure reflex game. Warning: it has sounds, so do not play at work unless you want people to know you are on break. It is a short game, but may be addictive. It ranks your reflexes. Most of the time I was a Bobbing bobcat, so I kept playing until I finally achieved the title of a Rocketing rabbit. I wonder if my kids will become a Turbo-charged cheetah, but that looks to be beyond my current reflexes. At least on my new (very fast) office PC - one week old. Wonder if the game would be easier on a slower PC?

I also tried the game with my eyes closed once as it give audio feedback. It worked, but it slowed me to an Ambling armadillo

Go try the game yourself.

update: I got home and tried it on a much older computer. On my first and only attempt I got the Turbo-charged cheetah with an average time of 0.0228 seconds. It is a fun game, but don't pay too much attention to the rankings. A slow computer makes it easy and a fast computer makes it almost impossible. Reminds me of the first time I played a computer game (Defender) designed for the original IBM PC on the PC AT (with a 286 processor). The 286 was so (relatively) fast that the game was over before you had a chance to see anything...

Request for Ideas
I am about to hire a firm to add shopping to Solport. I will be stocking innovative items, mostly consumer electronics, that are not typically carried by mass merchandise stores. My working slogan is: Solport: The most innovative products in the solar system.

I would greatly appreciate any comments on things you like – and dislike – about internet shopping sites. I am also open to any other suggestions such as cool ideas for logos, merchandise I should carry, places for comments, anything at all.

Still Alive
Blogging has obviously been very light, almost nonexistent, lately. It will probably stay that way for a few more months. I hope we’ll be in the new Casa Quixote in late June. We started drywalling a few weeks ago. I subcontracted this out and am racing them through the house. I need to stay at least one room ahead of them to do my wiring. This is the first time in my life I have been thankful for Daylight Savings Time. It lets me work until about 8:00 PM before it gets dark now. I could rig up some electric lights to work later, but I’m ready to pack it in and go eat supper at that point anyway.

Jenn, thanks for the kind comments. I see you have an interesting blog – when I resume blogging on a regular basis I’ll take a closer look at it.
