I was sleeping when I Dad woke me up, asking me if there was a gas station nearby. I check the GasBuddy app on my phone to be greeted by this. I had to screenshot this to show proof of this gas station; I’ve never heard of it before despite traveling here previously, and it was only because of that app that I now know of its existence.

 

The name itself gave me a good laugh. I’m not sure what El Cheapo sells, but they’re pretty low, considering the rest of the prices. But too bad, Sunoco has you beat.

**Technical note: the metadata on the screenshot shows 2:52AM, even though the actual screenshot says 3:52AM. This is because of Daylight’s Saving Time, and I’ll be sticking with the shown time for consistency.

While I was heading out one day from DIGM classes, I noticed one of the computers had this typed into the DOS prompt. Looks like someone had a crack at a terminal joke while the computer was being wiped with Norton Ghost!

 

While I didn’t get to grab another photo of it, it stayed like that for another couple days. So the joke was around for a bit.

Well, from seeing all those shows on TV, I never thought I’d see this happen. I got stuck inside when the doors failed to open on the second floor. Then the emergency key wasn’t inside, and the emergency info led to the campus security.

 

So my sister and I were stuck there for about 30-40 minutes until they got it open. The fire department were the ones who ultimate had to force the doors open. At least we weren’t stuck halfway or something.

I love my new tablet. It’s like I’m living a century in the future. I don’t need to carry my laptop everywhere.

 

But sometimes it gets bugs. And when it loses the Internet connection, strange things happen. As with here.

 

I would think with such temperature ranges, we’d all be dead by now. -_-;;

For years I imagined that digital billboards would be a thing of the future. I had NO idea that it would be this recent! While this was a welcome development, there were still bugs to iron out. I caught this one night with my family when we stopped somewhere. This Wendy’s menu in-restaurant was running on Windows 7 and needed to run and update. Typical Windows.

I don’t quite remember where this is, but this is headed up on the way home somewhere on I-95. Pretty sure we left Florida at this point; while the photo is blurry, you can see we had 140 miles till the South Carolina I-26 exit. Also you get a good shot of my Acer Iconia A100 tablet. Works pretty well as a GPS once you solve it’s power issues and get it’s map data.

On our way out back home, Dad decided that we sightsee at least one place. So we had an earlier start than usual. While we were heading up north, I passed this guy with an RC plane on the back of a trailer. Kinda impressed that the plane was just fitted like that. Admittedly, that’s the first time I saw that big of an RC plane in person; it was always limited to Youtube videos or photos online.
