Scavengen Hunt

This was great fun. We ran around SF solving puzzles and taking pictures of where our puzzles had led. The event was run by shinteki.


We made a lego logo. This got much attention. It took about 5 hours of engineer time - 6 of us working on it for the better part of an hour, minus Laura making a dinosaur (will post pic soon..), and me trying to make a sphere (I became impressed with just how hard it is to make a round peg out of square pegs....). I have to put up a closeup to show just what detail it has - serifs, nice rounded curves, follows the shapes of the font correctly.... It's now a prize decoration in Gwendolyn's office, and the others there will take care of it when she leaves. Let the Lego Logo live on.

Picture: back row, L-R: David (aka dfontain), Dave, Fivos, Evan; front: Laura, Gwendolyn, me.

This was at the company "picnic", which was a full-blown carnival. Let it never be said this company doesn't throw good parties, and throw them often.

Great America

A bunch of interns went to Great America on July 30. I think I went on 8 roller coaster rides. It was awesome. But very little beats the sight of Brian in a pink feather hat....

We were also very happy to get cold, thirst-quenching strawberry frosties.

Pics: top: David (dfontain), me, Gwendolyn.
Bottom: Gwendolyn, Brian, me. (See, doesn't he look good in that hat?)
