Malaysian Airlines flight MH370

There is very little we on the internet can do right now except hope that everyone involved in the search stays safe and maybe finds some answers. Flying is a big part of every day life, we’ve been both the passenger on the plane, and the person waiting at the airport for a friend or a loved one to land. I can’t imagine the horror that unfolded on board, or how it felt to be at the airport waiting for a flight that would never arrive. The fallibilities, and the great strengths, of our modern world have been laid bare for all to see. One thing that remains constant though – the Boeing 777 is a truly magnificent aircraft and a masterpiece of engineering. Everyone at uplink.to sends our best wishes to all involved.

What we’ve been watching: The Scooby-Doo Show!

Looking again at this, non-CG animation, no cell-phones or computers – and a laugh track!

The first season was in 1969, the earliest Amazon had was The Scooby Doo Show aka Scooby-Doo Where Are You?

From Wikipedia


The Scooby-Doo Show “is the blanket name for the episodes from the third incarnation of the Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon Scooby-Doo. A total of 40 episodes ran for three seasons, from 1976 to 1978, on ABC, marking the first Scooby series to appear on the network.”

What we’ve been watching: Elementary

This has been a great treat. Whether its better or worse than the BBC’s Sherlock is pretty subjective, but I recommend watching both. I haven’t seen Robert Downey Jr’s renditions yet.

First trip to Homestead-Miami

I’ve been to the Daytona 500 a few times but never to the last NASCAR race of the year at Homestead-Miami, always wanted to check it out. Fortunately I have some friends there that were willing to go with me, perfect south Florida weather for the occasion!

This game has a lot of funny parts, gameplay very similar to other Lego games but a great time for everyone watching or playing. Lots of references to the Avengers movie.
