Boarding pass to Mars

NASA boarding pass

NASA's Mars 2020 Rover is heading to the red planet and if you click here you can submit your name and it will be stored on a memory chip in Mars when it arrives.

Makes a nice gift for someone.

It is a shame we cannot convert these frequent flyer points to QFF or Virgin?

Australian Federal Election 2019

POS SOFTWARE

 

I have a question!

 

This is a prediction made from an *expert* the day before the election.

Labor to win by about 11 seats! This was a typical prediction.

 

Australian Federal Election 2019

Okay this is my question how could the polls, from every company, the private polls done, the polls done from the political parties and the exit polls on the election day all get the same result which is so badly wrong?

Google+ gone

POS SOFTWARE

Yesterday we had an example of how quickly and ruthlessly a major corporation can move with BigW closing 30 stores in Australia with probably another 30 to go soon. 

Google+

Today Google shut down Google+.  If you have a Google+ page for your business well it is gone now. I am stunned as according to its Wikipedia page it had 100s of millions of monthly users surely there would have been some loud protest from some of these and it would be a fortune that Google has written off, I saw figures of $585 million the project had cost Google in 2011, 8 years ago, I wonder what it would be now? The investors I am sure are concerned.

It is not the first time Google has done it, check out here, the so-called the guillotine and graveyard for Google's discontinued products, services, devices, and brands, 

What these examples do show is that business owners have to think objectively about their business just like these companies are doing to survive. If you do not do it then your competitors will do it.

Then like the Video stores (remember them), you will go.

Gone the last video library left near me.

Researchers Identify a 2-Minute Trick That Stops You Craving Fatty Foods

POS SOFTWARE

I have often wondered why our clients in cake shops, restaurants and pizza parlour are rarely fat. If you put me in such places, I am sure I would get into real trouble. 

Well, researchers may have found the answer. It seems that the body is fooled after a long period (2 minutes) of smelling the fatty foods to eat something else. Here is the article have a read.

I am going to try it out to see if breathing in fatty food smells for more than two minutes is enough to put me off some high-calorie foods. See how you go.

Tortoise vs Hare

POS SOFTWARE

There is a famous story of the race between the Tortoise vs Hare, where the arrogant and over-confidence hare is is beaten by the steady tortoise.

Well, check what happens in real life when they race.

It is not actually an accident as this race been done a few times with 

The tortoise wins not because he was slow and steady as many say but because the hare stops while the tortoise won because it was focused and maintained consistency.

Like the tortoise we need to focus on the things will control, not get distracted and stay focused on the goal.

Halloween 2018 NASA

POS SOFTWARE

Halloween Saturn NASA 2018

 

Come Halloween, most of our clients did something to take advantage of the holiday traffic as it is becoming more accepted and more Australian mainstream.

So did a lot of other organisations, NASA deciding the time was right, released this picture today showing that there is something spooky now in our solar system. 

 

You want some ideas for next year, here are some instructions on how NASA makes an out-of-this-world Halloween pumpkin?

Grand final 2018

POS SOFTWARE

Today was a public holiday in Victoria because of the 2018 AFL Grand Final.

Grand final 2018

 

Support was as usual as we are diverting the phones to our interstate support bays. Our week-end support and after hours numbers will be the same as usual over the weekend.

Hopefully, you will not need it, so you can appreciate the match, come tomorrow.

It has been a terrible season for me a Carlton supporter, still, I am hoping for a good game.

Despite the fact that Collingwood lost to West Coast Eagles in the qualifying final, I still think that they are the team to beat. 

Hope your team does well. 

 

Update: It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a game as good as this one. 

Overall it was a great game for anyone that was not a Collingwood supporter.

Please give me a few days to get back into the routine. As I know there is a big pile of work waiting for me. Three weeks of it plus what will come.

 

Here are some photos of my trip

Denmark here I am, we all put on weight there.

 

Love this French cooking

 

They converted this junk yard into a terrific museum, going through the old cars, bikes, computers, radios, was incredible.

 

 

 

A guy in Bulgaria spent over 15 years carving this; the detail is just incredible
 

 

 

The cathedral in Strasbourg

 

You may recognise this as this if you are interested in cult movies as this is the city of Dubrrovnik where much of the game of thrones is filmed.
