Punxsutawney Phil was dragged out into the daylight this morning and presented to a supposed crowd of 35,000 people. Where Phil supposedly did NOT see his shadow and thus, as the tradition goes, there will be an early Spring.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

It's a very old groundhog...

I noticed this morning that the sunlight was starting to look summery.

It was rather deceiving I have to be honest, mighty cold still, but it was an encouraging sign, before we know it we'll be out in the parks enjoying the sun again.

Very strange weather. before we know it we will only be having 2 seasons, summer and winter, we are not far off that now.

Heh, not surprised... Todays forecast there calls for overcast skies and snow with a couple inches accumulation possible. Phil is accuracy is under 40% too. Personally, I trust Farmers Almanac more.

You know, I was only thinking yesterday that it felt like a lovely autumn day here in Queensland.
