Internet in the 1980’s-1990’s

You have to admit that this is funny.  The people from Squirrel Monkey have come up with old computer programs from our favorite websites.  What if Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Angry Birds were invented in the 1980’s or the 1990’s?  You know the time video games and the computer were brought into the marketplace.  Also the time of big hair, Pac-ManRubik Cube‘s, Moon-walking, and great music.  These programs would have been very confusing to run and learn.  And the graphics were ugly as well.  We have come a long way since the time computers were invented!  So enjoy the poor graphics and music below!


Roadscapes Wednesday

Yes Roadscapes Wednesday is going to continue on Geek Alabama.  There are plenty of technology savvy people who are road geeks.  Heck there are even people who tape YouTube videos of roads.  One popular road geek is Freeway Jim.  Here is an video of the route to Talladega.  The closest video to where I live.

This week I went to take a few photos of one of those crazy 4-lane 65 mph traffic light intersections.  This intersection at U.S. 431 and AL 77 also features a train track.  Plus the light sensors on the 4-lane highway are broken.  So when someone pulls up to the light.  They will be sitting there for a while.
