Misc Ramblings
OK... you guys caught me... I totally blew off last week. I was working mornings, and kept falling asleep too early to do the news.. and then.. I just spaced it.. see.. I'm an ass.. and I know it *claps his hands*

We had a gold star sometime this last week... and thats QUAD XEON who has surpassed the 25,000 Credit Barrier.. CRASHED through it.. demolished it.. shatered.. boom.. its in shambles... erased, slashed.. sent home in shame... You know what I mean...

olive was our top cruncher with 33,875 Credits, Dave Rave nailed second with 30,185 Credits, and jester snagged third with 14,876 Credits. QUAD XEON snagged a double with a 5th place finish using a mere 12,948 Credits.. Impressive.. all of you...

kerbell7ken was our top mover last week having used a mere 2,053 Credits to move 14 places up the team charts, reducing his competition to nothing, and proclaiming his seti skills from ever higher positions.. nicely done...

And Thats it.. I'm done.. c'ya laters...

A Smoke Angel from Airplane Flares
Credit: russell e. cooley iv, usaf

Explanation: What type of cloud is that? It is not a naturally occurring one. Looking perhaps a bit like a gigantic owl monster, the cloud pictured above resulted from a series of flares released by an air force jet over the Atlantic Ocean in May. The jet that released the flares, a C-17 Globemaster III, is seen on the right. the flares release smoke and the resulting pattern is sometimes known as a smoke angel. The circular eyes of the above smoke angel are caused by air spiraling off the plane's wings and are known as wingtip vortices.
