new search engine

Hi all,
I just wanted to share with you a Google search engine that uses less's called Blackle.

Blackle was created by Heap Media to remind us all of the need to take small steps in our everyday lives to save energy. Blackle searches are powered by Google Custom Search.

Blackle saves energy because the screen is predominantly black. "Image displayed is primarily a function of the user's color settings and desktop graphics, as well as the color and size of open application windows; a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen." Roberson et al, 2002

So if you are so inclined...try it, use it, help the world be more energy efficient.

new iPhone

Just wanted to let you know I got it!!!! WHOO HOO!!!!

I got it from the store on 14th St...I called and they said it would be 2.5 hours...when I got there...I was on line for about 45 min. They gave out water and coconut juice! When I got inside...I was setup and my old address book was synched to the phone in about 20 min!!! I was helped by Joseph...he was awesome =)

It's so cool...I can't wait to synch it to my computer!

busy, busy, busy

...but what else is new =)

So...I had an awesome weekend! I had a friend come visit from MA this past weekend...we went to Icefalcon's Ducal Challenge in NJ...

See the scroll I did for that event on my other blog.

Yesterday, I gave a speech at the Rosary Sociey Luncheon...and it was a hit =) I admit that I was a little nervous at first, but it turned out quite well. And, I had a few young women approach me about career opportunities in Engineering, so I guess I made my point and someone was listening ;)

Today, was been pretty good. I had the opportunity to attend the 2009 Distinguished Leaders in Education Award Breakfast at the Harvard Club...good breakfast!

Tonight, I have a volleyball game (if it doesn't rain) so I'm looking forward to that...and I have a full week of events ahead of me!

Can't wait! Have a great week everyone!
