Robots Invade Pittsburgh – Roboworld

Posted on April 20th, 2008 by Merlin.
Categories: Announcement, Human, Life, Pittsburgh, Travel.

Carnegie Science Center - Pittsburgh - RoboworldJust announced – Well earlier this month – Is Roboworld at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, PA. This new exhibit will be part of their permanent display –  It will cost about $3.4 million and  will emphasize three aspects of artificial robotic behavior: sensing, thinking and acting.

This Display will also  include members of the Carnegie Mellon University Robot Hall of Fame. On April 9th Anthony Daniels Dropped by for this announcement as his famous character C3PO is on display in the Robot Hall of Fame.

This exhibit hopes to help to foster kids into careers in Science, Math, and Technology and hopefully relating to the field of robotics. From all that I read on this new display this will be the largest of it kind in the nation.

I know I can’t wait till this display opens – if it is like the other displays there – it will included lots of hands on and lots of fun with a bunch of education thrown in with out it seeming like you are learning.

And as R2D2 would Say:

New WordPress Theme: Revolution Theme

Posted on February 6th, 2008 by Merlin.
Categories: Announcement, Communication, Firefox, Journaling, Money, Search Engine, Web Service, Wordpress, working.

Normally I would not be writing about a New WordPress Theme – But I felt I should mention it as I am considering purchasing this for possible use here. I really love the look and feel of this theme. It really is very clean looking, easy to navigate, brings more information to the front page, hopfully will get the reader more involved in the blog. (Yes, You – Please comment and let me know what you think) – I do write to help me understand different topics more, and I love sharing any of the information I learn about. That is why I started Merlin’s Tower. Yes, I like seeing what I created and written on the web. And Why not share any bit of information your learn with others. So, they can learn from your mistakes and highs as well.

So here is The WordPress Revolution Theme – This really would be good for most informational blogs. I really love the wordpress magazine theme. Yes, this theme does cost some money but I really think this developer deserves to be paid as this really is a great looking set of themes.

The Revolution Theme: Revolution News Theme This is the Revolution News Theme: To Quote the website: “This theme is a great solution for those who want the online newspaper look similar to websites such as CNN News, US World News & World Report, etc.”

This really is a nice WordPress News Theme: Supports Ads, Widgets, and Fully Customizable

Revolution Magazine ThemeOn the Right is the Revolution Magazine Theme: “This theme is perfect for those who want to publish an online magazine. It’s built for daily posting, displaying video and is easily monetized with ads.” This really is one Classy looking WordPress Magazine Theme. I like the look and the layout of this theme.

This is a possible choice for me to use.

The Revolution Theme: Revolution Tech Theme for WordPress

Here is the Revolution Theme called Revolution Tech Theme.

The Revolution Tech Theme: “This theme is ideal for the Techcrunch fan, and who wants their site to feature a technology, focusing on the latest tech news, product reviews, etc.”

This is the theme for someone that will be starting a technology blog. A few of the blogs I frequent could use this. This is not for me but it too is a classy theme for wordpress.

The Revolution Theme: Revolution Sports Theme for WordPressThe last theme that Revolution Theme has is the Revolution Sports Theme: “Here’s a great way to turn your site into a major sports news/infromation hub. Feature sports like Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey and more.” A friend of mine is thinking about starting a golf blog and this would be a good place to start for him. Again words are not enough to describe this theme. A very nice clean and professional looking theme for wordpress.

All of these themes really take wordpress to the next level and take it from just being another blog and transforming it into a true CMS (Content Management Solution) that gives a really beautiful look and feel to wordpress. Please support Brian Gardner and his Revolution Themes: Revolution Tech, Revolution Magazine, Revolution Sports, or Revolution News and his soon to be released Revolution Pro Theme. Again these will work with widgets and are all fully customizable.

So, People let me know what you think and visit the Revolution Theme Site and Support Brian Gardner in all of his Theme Building.

Today – I wanted to share a video I saw on You-Tube – This is from Common Craft – This is What is a blog in Plain English? – I have to say it really is a good overview of what is a blog and why are they important to the 21st Century? So, Readers do you have a blog? Leave a comment letting me know what your blog is and we can learn from each other. Don’t have a blog? Why not start one today. A good place I would recommend is WordPress.Com – -Well onto today’s video….

Sorry for Lack of Updates Lately

Posted on May 28th, 2007 by Merlin.
Categories: Announcement.

Life Happened – yup – not as much time on the PC as I used to have – I got a full time job back at my old company and just have not had as much time to update.

I am working on getting my schedule worked out where I can do several stories each week.

If you have any ideas or suggestions please leave me a note and I will work on it as soon as possible. I would love to hear some of your suggestions.

By the way – I hope all the people that had today as a holiday out there had a nice start of “Summer” time to open up the grill and have a steak or two and grill grill grill.

Take care and see you very very soon
