  3. What are you listening to right now?

    The original song was released in 1966, this is the version that appeared on the "To the Bone" album in 1996. Gained a lot of popularity when it appeared in a mesmerizing scene on "Sopranos"      
  4. RIP Michael Constantine (94) aka Gus Portokalos ... fervent believer in the restorative power of Windex
  5.   Thanks for the mentioning him. I was about to post it myself. This one hits close to home. I've known him all my life personally, as he was a close friend with my father for the past ~40 years. A great composer, and an even better human being.

  8. Computing power rolled back 4 decades

      I might be younger (44) but started programming quite early. I remember finishing the University and thinking I had enough of "the ancient" stuff we've been taught, time to find a job doing something in a modern language. First job I had was in Cobol (in banking) ...    I still get 1-2 headhunter messages per month through LinkedIn/Xing about potential Cobol jobs...
  9. How to value a house for purchase?
