Henry, I would say that my first couple of weeks of transitioning to the mac OS was a little like a fish out of water...but that didn't last long. I quickly grew fond of the experience. Graphics certainly are faster and better...the biggest reason why we use Macs for demonstrations and presentations and such. I use Safari and Firefox for my browsers. Every once in a while I run into a situation where the site I use might say they run best on IE, but that is very few and far between. Side topic...the photos on your page of the drastic driveway slopes are a bit thought provoking...if you don't mind my asking, what is the story there?
Yeah, the places to be a football fan this year is Buffalo and Detroit. The best thing is the excitement of seeing a team turn around from being really bad for so long. The beauty is that the expectations are low, so when they do get knocked out they'll say "wow, what a great season". Contrast that to high expectations like Phillies/Red Sox or Eagles/Patriots and when they get knocked off it makes you ill. I remember the excitement of the Patriots first Superbowl appearance in '85 and their first win in '01. Now it is an expectation. It takes the fun out of it to some degree.
Hi Henry, im curious to know where in Newtown did you work? I do know mike ruane but only in passing... small world. I will have to check out the new york school you recommended as well. Thanks for the input
you are right, I now mostly work on residential and cultural projects. Years ago I did a lot of work for developers on large scale golf communities and repairing the engineered grading and drainage solutions was a big part of what i spent my time on.
I joined this site because I thought the discussions were interesting and curious to me. I just looked at your photos and the houses with the steep driveways gave me an idea for another blog called "all engineers must die" it seems most of my work as a landscape architect has been mitigating work done by engineering criteria.
