    Uncle Jay Explains The News — April 26, 2010 April 28th, 2010

    Uncle Jay is on vacation this week but for the fun of it, Uncle Jay is repeating last week’s special singing episode but including the new YouTube close captioning which is woefully inaccurate. The errors are funny!

    Godzilla April 17th, 2010

    You can have your 3-D Avatar and transforming trucks crap — personally, there`s nothing better than old-school Godzilla. And not the awful American remake either.

    My How You’ve Grown April 17th, 2010

    Corsair's Flash Survivor 32gb flash driveBack in the mid 80’s soon after my wife and I were married, we received our very first personal computer; a hand-me-down IBM PCjr. I can’t remember how large the hard drive was (I seem to remember it not having one) and I seem to remember the modem was either 800 or 1200 baud. I do remember that it couldn’t run Windows so when I decided to create my own website, I had to teach myself HTML programming, type the HTML out manually and upload it to the website. Then I had to go to a friend’s house to check on his better computer which COULD run Windows to see what mistakes I made. Then I’d go home, fix the mistakes then repeat the process. It too months for me to build a simple personal website that way. We used that computer until it finally started to have issues that couldn’t be fixed so we purchased our own personal computer from a locally owned computer shop. We had it built custom with what we wanted that we could afford. It was nothing fancy. No bells and whistles, but we were thrilled that it has a 2400 baud modem and a 40 meg hard drive.

    Friday I received in the mail a flash drive I ordered via Amazon.com. It is called “Flash Survivor” and is made by a company called Corsair. It fits in the palm of my hand and has 32gb capacity.

    Sometimes my mind goes off on unusual tangents and when I was taking the flash drive from the packaging I decided to figure out mathematically just how much larger in capacity this flash drive is compared to the old bulky 40 meg hard drive I once had.

    Crunching the numbers, I found that this little flash drive which fits into the palm of my hand is approximately 820 times larger in capacity that that old bulky 40 meg hard drive.

    Amazing.

    My how have you grown!
