Backyard Panorama

I made a quick panorama of what it looks like from our backyard. I really like Hugin. It's a really cool program.

Now, back to the things I should have been doing....

My 1337 Parking Pass

I think the world's trying to tell me something. I'm just not sure what it is. For instance, here's the day parking pass I paid for today:

And no, I didn't Photoshop it.

What, you don't know what the number means? Maybe you should Ask Google...

Whats on my Drivers License Bar Code?

I had wondered what was on the back of the 2D barcode on my Drivers License:

------ Begin Card
Address=[my street in all caps]
City=[my city in all caps]
Zipcode=[my zip code]
Driver License Number=[my drivers license number]
License Expiration Date=YY/YY/MMDD
License Issued Date=MM/DD/YYYY
Date of Birth=MM/DD/YYYY
Eye Color=XXX
Address Line 2=
------ End Card

I find it interesting that they've got the expiration date wrong (YMD and not MDY as the slashes would indicate), and that they just went with Inches, rather than Feet + Inches.

A program is available to decode yours, too (works for most States' Drivers Licenses).
