According to Penny, my Indian name is "Walks with Poop".
I cannot argue against its accuracy.

Anniversary of note
Seven years ago tonight, I wrecked a motorcycle and my leg and my shoulder and my jaw. All things considered, I've gotten through it pretty well.

Short version

I have some photos from the air, and Penny has some of the takeoff and landing that will be posted eventually.

TSA Pre-Check
‎I seem to get selected for secondary screening (SSSS) about half the times I fly, but this morning we were diverted into the Pre-Check line instead. It *almost* seems like a reasonable level of security. Left my watch, ring, and shoes on. We did have our hands swabbed for explosive residue before going through the metal detector, but it was still better than the standard security theater and *much* better than being taken off for secondary screening.

Bing calls it "Streetside"
My wife saw a Bing car pass our house the same day I saw one on my commute. I pulled this from their FAQ page:
Q.
What technology will you use to collect street level pictures?
A.
The sensor system mounted on the car provide the ability to capture a 360 degree picture and support the collection of street level imagery and 3D information. It includes 3 main components:
  • Positioning sensors (an integrated GPS/IMU unit) which ensure all data collected is accurately georeferenced;
  • Panoramic cameras which provide the ability to capture street level imagery in a 360° field of view;
  • Rotating laser scanners which collects over a million data points every second to help create things like 3D representations of the environment.

They're everywhere
‎Today I saw the Bing car again, on a side road (Knolls Pond Ln and Pohick Crest Dr) less than 200 meters from where I saw it the last time, five minutes away from where I'd seen the Google car a couple times.

More Google car sightings
‎Penny saw it out the window while I was getting ready for work, then I saw it while I was driving through the neighborhood. 
It's possible my car will show up three times (and counting).
