My new desktop image

For those who like to follow along with my current desktop image, I was able to update today to the latest configuration of the International Space Station (my summer place as I like to joke about).

I borrowed this beautiful picture on the NASA multimedia page.

As a side note: Atlantis is not landing today as planned because of bad weather. The plan is to try again tomorrow at Kennedy Space Center, and Edwards Airforce Base in California as a backup. They are doing a orbital burn to slow the shuttle orbiter down a bit to bring the landing in earlier when the weather is expected to be better.

It is interesting to listen to the interaction between the astronauts and Mission Control in Houston. Checklists after checklists with step-by-step processes ensuring a successful flight. The thing I really notice is the number of “thanks” being passed around. I think the “thanks” part is really missing in business interaction these days, and something I have to remember to do more.

So thanks for reading my blog today {bg}.

    And support for VFP9 will last longer than support for the current Space Shuttle program. ;)

    Sure Carl, but the space shuttle program is more than 10 years older than FoxPro, and I am guessing a lot more complicated than VFP. {g}
