There is a lot to see in this photo. The caboose stands out; also there is a Union Pacific passenger car on the right. Note the CTA train passing on the Lake Street L Bridge over the Chicago River in the background (just above the caboose).

Basically my reaction to Microsoft ending support for Windows XP.
My desktop (built 2003) still runs it and I have no plans to upgrade because (a) XP rocks, (b) I can’t afford to upgrade, (c) Windows 8 is terrible (I refuse to even consider using it) and (d) to upgrade would require me to wipe my hard drive…excuse me?  WTF do I do with my iTunes and other programs that would take A MONTH or more to re-install and configure?
Microsoft is only ending support for XP to force people to buy their inferior product, Windows 8.  Suck it!

Ponte de le tette Sestièr de S. Cróse, Venezia (Tits Bridge, St. Cross District, Venice), Veneto, Italy

The bridge takes its name from the prostitutes that used to show their tits from the bridge and the next alleys; the Republic of Venice in XVI (15th) C aC encouraged them to entice and “convert” suspect homosexuals.

Hopefully they no longer try to “convert” gays in Venice…

TTC streetcars get the IMAX treatment

The Toronto streetcar is getting the big screen IMAX movie treatment this summer. A stunning looking trailer for The Red Rocket, a documentary that records the daily life of “one of the world’s great trolley rides,” is currently making the rounds online.

The 14-minute short was commissioned by the CN Tower’s Maple Leaf Cinema. It follows the evolution of the Toronto streetcar from the wooden vehicles of the Toronto Railway Company, the precursor to the TTC, to the current fleet of CLRVs and articulated ALRVs. There’s also a look at the new low-floor streetcars coming to Spadina Avenue later this year.

(Read More)

I always use the TTC to get around Toronto when I visit.  I seriously think I’d get lost otherwise.
