2012 aspConf – Videos that caught my eye

This is a bundle of videos on Channel 9 that came from the recent virtual ASP.Net conference known as aspConf. Basically these are just some videos that I’m hoping to watch over the next week or two.


In honor of Rhino Day at the Birmingham Zoo

Today was Rhino Day at our local zoo. Unfortunately we were not able to make it ourselves, but it sounded like they had some pretty fun activities going on. According the website they were even letting people brush the rhinos at a couple of specific times during the day! I really would have liked to see the logistics of making that happen. 

This video was taken last week, but it’s much more applicable today. 

Happy 4th of July

I’ll use pretty much any excuse to watch this video again.


Registered for Warrior Dash Alabama

Today I signed up to run in the Warrior Dash in October. I’ve got a couple of friends that are doing it, and it sounds like a ton of fun. Climbing over obstacles and crawling through mud… what’s not to love? It helps that it’s also the same weekend as Alabama football’s bye week.

Training began this morning, and I have full intentions to see it through this time. There’s no need to bring up my track record with training programs…

Tuscaloosa is leveled by a tornado

This video makes my heart feel so heavy. The destruction associated with this storm is simply unbelievable. I thought that I’d seen some pretty intense storms in my life, but none of them compare to this one.

Please pray for everyone that was touched by this storm. 

Antoine Pettway, at the buzzer

This was the last time that Alabama had an opportunity to win the SEC regular season championship.

An oldie but a goodie…
