Movie DiscussionsSamantha Brown is a star on the Travel Channel. My wife picked up her Passport to Great Weekends : Collection 1 DVD at the library. It has a show for Las Vagas, where my wife hopes to warm up for a few days during this endless dreary Spring of 2014.

Sports: Athletic ContestsIt was time again for our group to pick the 35 teams for the 2013 College football season bowl games. 
The rules are simple (until you get to the tiebreaker part...). Simply pick the winners of more of this year's College Football Bowl Games than any other contestant and walk away with a reward so priceless, you don't have to declare it on your income taxes!

Sports: Athletic ContestsUCLA has missed the Pac-12 championship game even after mounting a furious comeback against ASU. It would have been their greatest of all time. USC is on a five game winning streak now that Lane Kiffin has been unceremoniously dumped at LAX. Ed Orgeron is the coach to beat.

Engineering: Things that are builtI picked up my order of Blackwing Pearl pencils. As advertised, they are in the middle of the Blackwing 602 and the Blackwing (The Paliomino Blackwing).

Over the last two years, the Pencils.com web site has expanded their offerings to include other pencil manufacturers.

Movie DiscussionsThe Group29 web site started with a bit of hubris, the premise that anyone could offer an opinion on movies and be a film critic. But the fact is that a true film critic has to be an accomplished writer, art lover, academic, and immerse oneself in the field.

Sports: Athletic ContestsFor only the second time in 14 contests, UCLA has defeated arch-rival USC. This time the Pac-12 Championship game was on the line, for both teams. The probably was the expected outcome when the Pac-12 South Division was formed. 

Is this a championship? Or are the division winners just representatives to the Championship?

Sports: Athletic ContestsIn nine years of previewing, this is the first time the UCLA (17) has been ranked higher that USC (21) in the polls coming into the game. Up to this point, the Bruins have been subject to machetes, rock to the scissors, and a 50-0 blowout. There was one lone victory in 2006.

Engineering: Things that are builtI found the slide rule that belonged to my dad. He became an engineer in the 1950s.  The internet has given me a lot of information about it. 

It is a Keuffel and Esser ( K+E  ) model number 4181-3. I found that was a plastic Log Log Duplex Decitrig. It must be from before 1962 when Keuffel and Esser changed all their model numbers. It is Made in U.S.A. - all plastic (trade name "Ivorite") stock, plastic cursor lens.

Moving to the next after iPhone 1One of the cool new things about my HTC Titan is the camera. There is a special button on the lower right side that is perfectly positioned for right index finger shutter operation. There is a saying attributed to Chase Jarvis, "The best camera is the one that is with you."
Why AT&T Does not want to sell you a Windows Phone

Moving to the next after iPhone 1It is pretty simple, really; the sales reps have no incentive. I discovered this in person a few weeks ago when visiting some AT&T stores and kiosks. The sales people dismiss the phones because they do not have apps. They do not stock them. They will tell you that they are in third place in a two-[platform] race.
HTC Titan looks cool, but

UCLA at USC preview 2011

Sports: Athletic ContestsThe BeatSC.com blogger who runs the Trojan Haters club pretty much summed it up. The UCLA Bruins football team is the scissors to the rock of the USC Trojans football team. UCLA has found itself in a very unlikely position. They are going to play for the PAC-12 championship against the Oregon Ducks in Oregon next week. USC cannot go because they are on probation. So, this game is meaningless in the title sense. Except for the fact that it the UCLA vs. USC game.
The Palomino Blackwings, Part II

Engineering: Things that are builtNow that I have them (See previous Group29 article The Palomino Blackwings) I have been using the Palomino Blackwing, in preference to the Palomino Blackwing 602. I really like how smoothly it writes and draws. I have wondered about how the particular formula came to be selected. It seems the original Blackwing 602 from Eberhard-Faber was a favorite of copywriters, authors, and musicians. At 50 cents each, they were quite expensive for the ordinary consumer, nearly 5 to ten times as much as an ordinary pencil. Today, they would probably cost $2 or more because of the distinctive eraser ferrule.
