June 16, 2008: Cloud Wake

This is a NASA photo of a cloud wake appearing on the downwind side of Isla Socorro, Mexico.


I wonder how high those clouds are above the water? I mean the island will obviously disturb the air flow around it, but I wonder how high above it?

Oooooh!
Not a very clever response, but my honest one.

Thank goodness it's not your way of passing on horrible news.
I thought I was going to have to don my black suit and drink Guinness for a moment.

I think it spells something. I can't quite make it out though. Maybe it is written in abu dhabi.

Ever wonder if clouds look at US and wonder "Do they look like anything to you?".



Cloud  Monday Jun 16 10:12 AM

What?! I'm up, I'm up!

. . . five more minutes, mom . . .

The clouds seem to follow a pattern of two colors mixing together in the water. I wonder if the water has two different temperatures, and the cloud formations are influenced by the temperature of the water underneath them.

Does the warmer water have an algae bloom that changes the color?

Clouds picked up water from island, now have Montezuma's revenge.

What do you mean HAVE to drink Guinness? Shouldn't the proper terminology be, GET to drink Guinness?

By the way, IOTD, very impressive!

If you want to Extend the Life of Your laptop Battery, You can do it follow this

If you want to Extend the Life of Your laptop Battery, You can do it follow this.1 Shut Down CompletelyWhen your notebook is running on toshiba battery power, there are things you can do to extend its charge. For one thing, when you're finished working, shutting down your computer instead of putting it into Stand By or Hibernate modes preserves apple battery power. Though Stand By and Hibernate enable you to restart quickly, both modes continue to draw power from your asus battery. (Hibernate uses less juice than Stand By, however.)2 Turn Off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Cellular ModemsAlways turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular modems when they're not needed. These wireless network technologies can be a significant drain on your laptop battery charge. Many newer notebooks have buttons to turn wireless connections on and off. You can also go to Start, Connect To, "Show all connections," then select the connection you want to enable or disable.laptop battery recalls, due to the potential risk of overheating or fire, have inconvenienced millions of mobile professionals. But lithium ion batteries -- widely used to power today's laptops -- are here to stay, at least for the foreseeable future.Below is advice on keeping your notebook's lithium ion acer battery in top condition and powering your portable PC as long as possible.3 Use It or Lose ItIf unused for long periods of time, lithium ion batteries can very slowly lose their capacity to hold a charge. Fortunately, lithium ion batteries hold their charge better over time than other rechargeables, including nickel cadmium and nickel metal hydride. But you want your spare to be ready when you need it, so if you've got an extra battery for your notebook, use and then recharge it on occasion to keep it ready to go.

Twas the spam. And some of the dumbest spam I've ever seen too.




I was expecting to see a wake for a cloud.

Karman vortices

Quote:
These magnificent swirling clouds are the result of a meteorological phenomenon known as the Karman vortex, a repeating pattern of spinning vortices caused by the unsteady separation of flow over bluff bodies. They appeared over AlexanderSelkirk Island in the southern Pacific Ocean – off the coast of Chile – rising voluptuously from the surrounding waters and creating a stunning spiral effect.

and check out the rest of the 30 Best Landsat 7 images here. Each is worthy of IotD IMHO.

Thanks to you, they now are, all IOtD.

Well if % means parts per hundred, then would %%%%% mean parts per 10 billion? Sounds like an atmospheric concentration of something nasty. Is nature trying to tell us something?

Hmm, thats thought provoking - now I'll have to go get coffee and get my brain started.
