    It's impossible for me to look at today's picture without hearing the theme from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" in my head.

    Regarding the advances in technology from Kitty Hawk to the first man on the moon, my research staff found this:

    "According to FlightGlobal (“Serious About Aviation”), the Apollo Guidance Computer, or AGC, had just 64KB of memory and only 0.043 MHz of processing power. That was enormous at the time, of course, but compare those specs with those of modern netbooks—the pint-sized laptops that are considered underpowered by today’s computing standards.

    The typical netbook has over 100 GB of capacity – more than a million times that of the computer on which NASA staked an historic mission and the lives of three astronauts. And a netbook’s 1.6GHz processor is several thousand times faster than that of 1969’s AGC."

    ■I wonder if the best day of my life has already passed or is yet to come.

    Keith, we've reached the point where both is true but regardless on balance life has started taking more than it gives.
