Smart Robots, Inc.

Smart Robots, Inc. : The SR4 Office Robot

"I have a project folder I wish to send to Kate Rahn, who works up on the next floor on the other side of the building. I hit the 'Robot Pool' Icon on my desktop computer and up pops a task form, pre-filled with my own desk ID and name. I key in the end-destination I will want, check a task selection (in this case, 'Delivery') and press 'Submit'. If I don’t happen to know Kate’s desk ID by heart, I can key her name (or enough for the PC to recognize who I am talking about - or I can browse the employee directory for her destination ID).
In a moment, up pops a message that indicates that robot R17 is on its way to my desk and gives me an estimated time of arrival (ETA). 'Great', I exclaim silently to myself - R17 is one of my favorites; painted ‘round its body with a scene from the Rocky Mountains.
Shortly, R17 wheels up to my desk and announces itself in a soft robotic voice. I place the project folder in the robot's carry-tray, select the 'GO' button on the robot task form on my PC and off the robot scoots to make it's way to Kate's desk. In the meantime, a message appears on Kate's PC that R17 is on its way, sent by me, and with an ETA countdown-minutes digital-indicator beside the message.
Following internally stored facility-maps of the building, the robot tracks the shortest path to the elevator, calls and operates the elevator digitally, avoids people and obstacles (objects not on the maps), and shortly arrives at Kate's desk. Kate's not there. The robot waits patiently for an appropriate period of time, dispenses its carry-tray's contents into Kate's in-basket and then heads for the nearest robot pool location.
Robots also grab coffee and snacks from the Starbuck's cafe on the first floor, deliver and/or retrieve copies"

Genius idea, may have to try a variation myself, perhaps, maybe.
a morning of browsing howies links well spent i think


Aren't screensavers Great!
I can see me getting a new one every week, little slideshows, like commercial break to life, only, showing just the cool commercials you want to see. i wonder if theres a screensaver of the Virgin advert with Kate Moss saying...
Anyhoo, ive been looking at the
for quite a while,and i think it time for a change to the
I'll try and download a new one from time to time, they dont take up much space, and could be one of those useless things you collect? perhaps?
I wonder if howies have a screensaver yet... Sadly not, but a Howies wallpaper is always useful, when you havent got a suitable picture you like enough knocking about i find

No Children

I hope that our few remaining friends
give up on trying to save us.
I hope we come out with a fail-safe plot
to piss off the dumb few that forgave us.

I hope the fences we mended
fall down beneath their own weight.
And I hope we hang on past the last exit,
I hope it's already too late.

And I hope the junkyard a few blocks from here
someday burns down.
And I hope the rising black smoke carries me far away,
and I never come back to this town again.

In my life, I hope I lie,
and tell everyone you were a good wife.
And I hope you die,
I hope we both die.

I hope I cut myself shaving tomorrow;
I hope it bleeds all day long.
Our friends say it's darkest before the sun rises;
we're pretty sure they're all wrong.

I hope it stays dark forever,
I hope the worst isn't over.
And I hope you blink before I do,
and I hope I never get sober.

And I hope when you think of me years down the line,
you can't find one good thing to say.
And I'd hope that if I found the strength to walk out,
you'd stay the hell out of my way.

I am drowning.
There is no sign of land.
You are coming down with me,
hand in unlovable hand.

And I hope you die,
I hope we both die.

The most remarkable thing about coming home to you is the feeling of being in motion again: its the most extraordinary thing in the world.

I have two big hands and a heart pumping blood and a 1967 Colt .45 with a busted safety catch.

The world shines as I cross the Macon county line
going to Georgia.

The most remarkable thing about you standing in the doorway is
that it's you
and that you are standing in the doorway

and you smile as you ease the gun from my hand,
I am frozen with joy right where I stand.

The world throws its light underneath your hair, forty miles from Atlanta, this is nowhere,
going to Georgia.

The world shines as I cross the Macon county line
going to Georgia.
