    Some people had their hopes, but again I remember their last finals, that didn't end up nice either.

    In this case, it's both.

    Always liked these. And there's a other European model kit brand that I liked a lot more than LEGOs...

    Mi 5 takes some nice pictures. While I really wanted a G5, I'm satisfied so much with the Mi 5 I'll wait. I really wished I had better LTE support...

    Not sure if I'm the first to put 2 and 2 together, but while watching the closing ceremonies and the hand-off to Japan, this Olympics logo popped in my head...

    Where everyone in the olympic village accidentally watches the cursed tape. Sadako then becomes an olympic diving medalist, a runner, a weight-lifter, a boxing champion, and a golfer, sans doping!!! by dragging every other competitor to a watery grave in a nearby well throughout the entire competition!!!

    With a game called Sadako-go available in IOS and android .... and windowsphone if you sign the petition or if we reach our kickstarter stretch goals to support windows 10 mobile.

    Just found out that the lead singer of one of my favourite Canadian rock bands has incurable brain cancer. They did a final concert last night and they broadcast it all across Canada. Over 12 million people watched it (quarter of the population).

    The band is 'very Canadian' and didn't have an international appeal, you sort of need to be Canadian to get their music. It somehow speaks to Canadians.

    The TV channel that broadcast it had the Olympics and bypassed that for this concert. Also the PM went to the concert.

    It's very sad. :(

    Band's name is The Tragically Hip. The music is very much rock but a little different as well. Some may say the singer isn't that good but he has stage presence and character, something not many music stars pull off that well. I personally like his voice, it's different. They're very much a band to see live.

    Their music tends to be very poetic and oddly one of their songs, written many years ago somewhat predicts this moment.

    Lyrics from the song At the 100th Meridian.

    If I die of vanity, promise me, promise me,
    They bury me some place I don't want to be,
    You'll dig me up and transport me, unceremoniously,
    Away from the swollen city-breeze, garbage bag trees,
    Whispers of disease and the acts of enormity
    And lower me slowly, sadly and properly
    Get Ry Cooder to sing my eulogy,

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...s-in-final-gig

    The song is a bit haunting.

    Morning folks. It's a day off from the funny farm...headed back home to get some fresh gear and to cook and work on some stuff.

    And of course I forgot to take the meat out I needed to thaw before I left...oh well. At least it's hot today and the turnaround is quick...

    Have a safe flight...if you end up having some beer and cheese during the trip, I certainly won't judge (we know you won't touch the sausage)...

    And I guess the Olympics would only last 7 days that year.
