Yesterday was the start of “public beta” for Yahoo! 360° — it’s kind of like a social-networking service, but I know it goes much beyond that. Now that it’s about to launch, I really need to take a closer look . If anyone wants an invite, just let me know.
Update: My 360° Blog is at: http://360.yahoo.com/cantonib. Also, to view anything on 360 (including public blogs like mine), you need to be signed in with a Yahoo ID.
While exploring Flickr, ran across this little gem: a Nascar Drinking Game!
It only took a week and a half, but I finally uploaded my pictures from the Las Vegas Nascar weekend. Without the garage passes we enjoyed in Phoenix, I didn’t go as crazy with the camera, but did capture a couple of good ones.
[Side note: now that Yahoo! bought Flickr, I decided to finally upgrade to the “Pro” account so I can really make use of this cool service.]
A couple weeks back, while parking in the special “Dodge Pickup and Expensive Italian Supercar” lot at work, I spotted this beauty. I’m not up on my Ferrari models, but I think this is a 360 Spider.
Today we headed to Las Vegas for this weekend’s NASCAR Busch and Nextel Cup races! I didn’t score any garage passes that we were lucky to have last year in Phoenix, so we’ll be “slumming” it with everyone else. No matter — the weather is supposed to be in the 80’s and after all, it is in Vegas, so we won’t complain.
The trip got off to a rocky start last night when I couldn’t find the race tickets for the 4 of us. After spending hours looking for them, we convinced ourselves that maybe we never received them in the mail. Luckily Grace found the missing UPS envelope early this morning and life was good again!
As I post this now, we’re hanging out at the Venetian watching a little basketball on the TV — might need to go check out the sports book soon.
