Space Shuttle Simulator

Seen this? It looks pretty good. At this point in time, it looks like it's not a very detailed simulator, but more of a mission overview. Graphics looks very good. It is made in France, but I wonder what language they are using. No mention of XNA anywhere...

Feed readers

I am relatively new to blogging. One of the things that helps me keep up with other blogs I like to read is a feed reader, also called an aggregator. There are many different ones out there, but I really like Google Reader.

Google Reader allows me to check feeds very efficiently on my laptop or on my phone, since they also have a very slick mobile interface. I like the fact Google is smart enough to check what type of browser is accessing their sites. By doing that, they can tell if you are accessing from your phone or laptop and display the proper page (the mobile page is very barren, just text, so it loads very quickly on your phone).

Let me know via the comments if there are other aggregators you like to use, I am always checking new programs out.

Pick up and move

The latest news are that I have been promoted. I have just returned from France and Monaco, travelled to Vermont the next day, spent one day back at home after that, and am now in Columbus, OH house-hunting. Life moves fast!

One of the cool things about this last trip is the hotel is literally on the airport, it sits between runway 28L and 28R, so I have planes taxiing about 300 feet from my window! Very cool!
