New Year’s Eve Time Zone Synchronicity

Eh, not really a great bit of synchronicity, I guess. Though as long as I’m here, I was wondering… Do any west-coast parents let their younger kids watch the Times Square ball fall at 9pm local time, convince the young’uns that they’ve stayed up until midnight, and then herd them into bed?


Elyrest: Here’s one to throw into your New Year’s Eve Time Zone Synchronicity. It even deals with the ball falling in another time zone. The strip’s “Home and Away

For the Post-Christmas Awww Files

Keera: I can so relate to today’s “The Buckets”; I got the same movie, too, for Christmas. I do have one gripe: “Star Wars” was never set in the future, only in a galaxy far, far away.

A Question for You Techies Out There

Cidu Bill on Dec 30th 2009

The other night, two friends were discussing their respective smart phones, an iPhone and, I think, a Droid — you know the kind of discussion, basically “My phone’s penis is bigger than your phone’s penis” — and one of them, I forget which, mentioned an app where if you lose your phone, you can dial it up, punch in a code, and completely erase all data stored on it.

Which got me thinking: Seems like every month we hear about some bank executive misplacing a laptop containing 500,000 customer Social Security numbers, or a Secret Service agent leaving a laptop containing the nuclear launch codes in a taxicab… so if an iPhone can have a remote-wipe function, is there any reason a laptop can’t? Seems like a fairly simple matter. 

Of course this begs the question of why ultra-sensitive information is ever allowed to be on a laptop, but that’s another matter and I doubt anybody can really explain this.

Yeah, I get the anecdote… but how does it apply here, especially since Arlo seems to be fairly mellow?
