Technology is an amazing thing

So I’m sitting at home minding my own business when I get an IM from one of my favorite people.  I want say he’s my favorite person because that would just inflate his ego and we all know he doesn’t need that!  J/K He doesn’t have an over inflated ego, it’s just if I said he was my favorite person then other significant people might get upset and I wouldn’t want that.

BTW, I’m referring to Tom, co-worker and my son’s boss.  He’s on vacation this week at a place called Mt. Hermon with his family. So I checked out the place and found one of my favorite things… a WEBCAM!!!!  The following is the conversation that followed my discovery of the webcam:

(7:56:29 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: so where are you in relation to the webcam?
(7:57:17 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: the webcam?
(7:57:34 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: http://mounthermon.org/webcam is there where you are?
(7:58:23 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: oh lord its looking right at me
(7:58:38 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: serious???
(7:58:44 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: wave for the camera
(7:58:56 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: did
(7:59:12 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: missed it
(7:59:32 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: ok see the brick on the building and the 1 yellow light?
(7:59:41 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: yep… guy with a blue shirt
(7:59:45 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: thats me
(7:59:53 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: that’s too funny
(7:59:57 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: standing
(8:00:14 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: yup thats me!
(8:00:16 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: lol
(8:00:24 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: just used snag it to capture the image
(8:00:54 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: heh
(8:01:07 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: of course the image quality is so crappy can’t zoom it all
(8:01:07 PM) Tom Kjeldgaard: anyway you enjoy that, im off to my cabim to work on these photos
(8:01:13 PM) hmagnuson@apuim.apu.edu/: have fun!

Yes, we do carry on exciting conversations.  I would share the previous conversation about the Rope Course and Vi taking pictures, but Tom just might kill me. 

So here’s the picture of Tom on vacation:

Sadly, you will have to take my word for it, since you can zoom in.  But really have I lied to you before???  (Tim you can not answer that question!)

Technology!  A beautifully creepy thing!
