It’s that season again, here’s what you need to know about this year’s vaccine.
After spending a few days in Wisconsin with my dad, we turned things upside down with a trip to the Wisconsin Dells and Mt. Olympus. The theme park, known for its outstanding wood coaster, Hades, has given it a twist this year. It is the first wooden roller coaster, with a traditional wooden track, that flips riders upside down. It does the 360 degree corkscrew after it emerges from underground. That’s what you need to realize about Hades. It already is a wild ride. It opened in 2005 with the steepest drop of any wood coaster, it then sends you flying into a pitch black tunnel under the parking lot, emerging for a series of twists and turns, and back underground to the main coaster area to finish your ride. 1,400 feet of your ride is underground! So, now, it’s Hades with a flip…and that’s why it’s called Hades 360. One more thing, all the coasters were extra rough today. The 90 degree heat does special things to coasters. Hades had a sign warning that today’s ride would be especially “aggressive.” It was!

Have the coolest cube in the office! This small tower looks like a heater but it’s a space saving fan tower. Quiet on low speed, it’s effective and has a unique pivoting top. Great for a home office, small room or cubicle. See my whole review at viewpoints.com.
Koobface hit Facebook users and created a botnet of computers to do its dirty work. Using social media, it got people to eventually choose to upgrade their Adobe Flash player…not knowing it was actually a fake upgrade designed to download the malware. Facebook exposed the gang and this is a wonderful look at the excellent cyber security work by another firm that also came up with the same names.
