(Oct.29) Today we’re celebrating…The Interweb’s Birthday

Happy Birthday to The Internet**

It was thirty-seven years ago today
When Standford Research Institute got the gang to play
And they came the UCLA way
So “ARPANET” became a “series of tubes?”***
And Happy Birthday to
Al Gore’s little kid…the Internet
*

*sung really, really badly to the tune of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

**On October 29, 1969 the first data link up between computers from UCLA and The Standford Research Institute was successful, thus ushering in what would become ARPANET – the predecessor of the the Internet.
FYI: The email symbol @  was adopted for use in 1972.

***Series of tubes was a metaphor used by  United States Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), to describe the Internet in a Wednesday, June 28, 2006 speech about network neutrality” OY! Our governmental geniuses at work.

“I Spent the Whole Night Waiting for the Great Pumpkin…You Blockhead”

And so another Halloween night passes with Linus still waiting for the Great Pumpkin after last nights broadcast of “Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”. Sigh!

Linus: 

Hey, aren’t you going to wait and greet the Great Pumpkin, huh? It won’t be long now! If the Great Pumpkin comes I’ll still put in a good word for you.

Good grief! I said “if.” I meant when he comes. I’m doomed. One little slip like that could cause the Great Pumpkin to pass you by. Oh, Great Pumpkin where are you…

Till next year…

Just a reminder that Daylight Savings Time ends tonight (Saturday) at 2AM. Enjoy some extra ZZZZZZs after you’ve turned your clocks back 1 hour before bedtime tonight . 

BTW – This is a great clock isn’t it? I found this @ the X-O Facto website and its a resin model kit (sculptured by Rocco Tartamella) and made by Earthbound Studios. With Halloween just a couple of days away – its perfect!
