Happy New Year 2011

Dear readers and subscribers,

As 2010 comes to a close, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you, and your family, a happy, and healthy New Year. May 2011 fulfill all its promise, and may all your expectations be exceeded.


“Every man should be born again on the first day of January.  Start with a fresh page.  Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were, and are past”.

    Greeting from Italy

    • Thank you Leofelix.

      It’s been a few years since I was last in Italy, but I must say – you live in a BEAUTIFUL country.

      Happy New Year to you, and you’re family.

    Thank you Bill for your good wishes

    Keep young !


    • I keep wondering where the time has gone, Michael. Einstein was right after all – time is relative. My relatives keep getting younger, while I get older and more curmudgeonly. 🙂

      All the best in 2011 to you, and your family. Stay healthy.

        curmudgeon ? you ? nah ~ you are one of the rays of light in the darkness that is ignorance

        PS I don’t mind your painful puns – just keep ’em under control please 🙂

  4. A Happy New Year to you and yours, Bill.

    All The Best for 2011.


    • I’ve been watching, with no small amount of jealousy, the incredible weather you’ve been having out there for the last month or so, Paul. It seems your weather guy has forgotten it’s almost January. 🙂

      I was on your site earlier this week, and saw the pics of your Christmas day walk – beautiful! I’m sure fortune will continue to favor you, and your family in 2011, as it has in 2010.

      Happy New Year!

    Hey Bill,
    Happy new year, I’m looking forward to the next year and all the wonderful tech things we can talk about.


    Hey Bill,

    Here’s hoping we can all see 2010 out surrounded by friends and family.

    Let’s all resolve to be (with your help) a little wiser, (with Gods help) a little more patient and a lot more forgiving!

    But until then…Party Dude!! Happy New Year Bill!!



    • Hi Bob,

      I second your resolutions for the coming year; especially – “a little more patient and a lot more forgiving”. It would be very cool, if we all took that to heart.

      In the meantime, as you suggest, I’m gonna Party Hardy! 🙂

      Happy New Year!

    Hi Bill,

    All the very best to you and yours for 2011. Thank you for all your efforts to keep safe those who are interested enough to learn.

    One of my favourite new year sayings is as follows:
    He who breaks a resolution is a weakling; He who makes one is a fool.

    Kind regards

    “Check out the Japanese Alps in Honshu, Japan’s largest island, where ploughs open winter roads by digging through 56 feet of snow”
    [I’ve checked sources & these pics are not ‘photoshopped’ – but how do the Japanese maintain the vertical snow walls like that ? Do they spray them with something ?]

  12. MrLokiNight

    where has the excess snow gone ? Does a Japanese snow ‘plough’ feed the snow into a hopper that fountains the snow onto the top of the surrounding landscape or is it fed into following trucks ? Can’t think of anything else. Puzzled…

  13. MrLokiNight

    How does the plough operator know where the edges of the road are so accurately ?
