Everyone dreams of changing the world...
Where do CEOs go for professional development? Vistage. Or you could just read what's offered by 800 CEO Read.com. You can get stock icons for your web or software applications from IconDock. Help your gamer keep clean with Digital Soaps. Are you mad like me that you don't already have a flying car? Revisit future dreams of the past with this collection of space age illustrations. On the other hand, you could have an Antonov AN-225, the world's heaviest jet. What can you do with rare-earth magnets? Apparently, quite a bit: introducing the NeoCube. The folks at Fort Worthology present this slideshow of The Avenue of Light, a new public art work being installed on Lancaster. If you're a mystery buff, take a look at this list of bizarre disappearances. While we're on lists, here's the top 11 weirdest burgers.
What could be better than a new barbeque restaurant in town? Who wouldn't enjoy trying a new take on brisket, ribs, and sausage, especially one with a award-laden track record? Well, that was the promise when Cowboys Barbeque & Rib Co. opened in the former Railhead location in Colleyville. However, a recent Saturday night dinner resulted in the least pleasant dining experience in memory. First, the layout of the restaurant is awful. Over half the tables are in the bar and those in the main dining area are hapharzardly arranged. In fact, some tables were so close together that it would impossible to have people sitting back to back. There was absolutely zero atmosphere in this place. On the topic of the wait staff, to call our waitress' service perfunctory would have been an exaggeration of grand scale. On the other hand, we did get to hear another waiter repeat his stale, faux-friendly banter at each of his tables - because you can easily hear every conversation at every other table. Regarding the food itself, if your idea of good brisket is a little meat infused with copious gelatinous globules of fat then this place is for you. Even the chicken in the fajitas didn't taste like chicken. And when they hand you your plate and caution you because it's hot, don't worry - the plate and food were barely lukewarm. If they're not out of business in 3 months, the city should just close them as a public service.
Need more bacon? Try bacon stuffed waffles and more. More Mac than you can handle: Macworld, Mac|Life, MacTech. E.gg Timer might be useful. IntegrityWare will be incorporating VBSpline's NURBs library into their products (not to be confused with T-Splines). If you know what a penumbral lunar eclipse is, you'll like these pictures. Engrish is funny in a guilty kinda way. But their English is still better than my Japanese. Do not click here.
