I think this is the coolest thing...

I got a froglinks flyer from TCU today. When lo and behold, this was on the cover!

I cannot explain how awesome it made me feel. Back in the old days, my friend Nikki H. and I had to create a Senior Design project to complete our Computer Science degrees. Her dad worked for Tandy at the time and was developing hardware to allow the company to change the pattern of lights lit on the sides of the (then) Tandy Towers in downtown Fort Worth. So, we decided to help him out and write software with a GUI that would make it easy to program the lights for an average user. Having the software available for free helped him to get approval for the project.

We joked about including a "white rabbit" so that our names or TCU would be displayed on our birthdays. It was all just talk, but it was awesome to see that there was no need. This was just the BEST. So, here's a big shout out and THANK YOU to whoever was responsible for making that happen. I'm just a little fish in the pond, but it sure is fun to know I had a small part in that happening.
