Open Tabs 11/11/11

Whether you call it Veteran’s Day, Pocky Day,Binary Day or something else, it’s Friday, I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to this weekend and spending some time with friends.  Being a parent, I don’t get out for adult time as much as I once did, which makes the rare occassions all that much more special.

If you know a veteran, today would be a good day to tell them thanks.  I ‘repaired’ radios long ago and far away on a little artillery base in Germany.  I put repair in quotes because our job was to say “Yep, it’s broken”, replace the radio and send the broken one off for repair by someone who actually did electronics troubleshooting.  I was lucky and my enlistment was during a relatively peaceful time, but we have hundreds of thousands vets out there who saw events and actions most of us can’t even imagine.  Please respect them for their sacrifices.

I haven’t done this in a few days, so there’s a lot of built up articles.
