If you hit F5 enough...you might see me...

This is something that I had been requested for a very long time...but of course I can't take the credit...maybe it's just a simple coincidence...but anyway, the fact is that I think that it's a wonderful idea!

So what it is? Basically, replace the old static picture of the TechEd Homepage with dynamic pictures of the SAP Mentors.

Now, if you hit F5 enough...you might see me -;)

Legends of Zork

A couple of weeks ago I started playing Legends of Zork. But wait a minute...don't think that it's a new version of the all time hall of fame game Zork.

Legends of Zork is a nice game, web based, created by Jolt Online.

When we log in, we are presented to a map so we can choose our destination.

When we explore a territory, we can see our status (life points, money, number of action points and experience points).

In fights, there nothing we can do...only wish that our power, armor and statistics helps us to beat the monsters. Anyway...it's fun to watch how many points you lost trying to beat them up.

While fighting, you can be lucky to find the mysterious Fanucci cards...which can grant you more power (Body, mind or spirit).

So, if you asked me...sure I love this game...it's not a fancy game with 3D blasting graphics...but surely going to give you a lot of fun -;)

Kudos to Craig Cmehil and FMR24H!!!

What Craig Cmehil started yesterday April 23 of 2009, was completely awesome...He stayed awake for 24 hours! Transmitting live from his house just to support Doctors without Borders (Doctors and nurses volunteer to provide urgent medical care in countries to victims of war and disaster regardless of race, religion, or politics.)

His initial target was to collect $2,000 to give them away to those amazing people trying to make this world a better place...How much he get after 24 hours? The amazing amount of $4,412 and still counting.

Wanna see the link? Here it is FMR24H, but of course, don't expect Craig to keep transmitting...He must be sleeping and recovering forces...He truly deserves it.

Gotta say that Craig is an SAP Mentor just like me and many other friends...so apart from my donation to the cause, I drop him a nice Blagbert cartoon
called Craig Cmehil and FMR 24 hours marathon, also Dennis Howlett build a cool video called Craig Cemhil's 24 hour show raising awareness and money for Doctors without Borders.

Of course I took a little screen shot, so you could see him in action -;)

Last words...Craig, you do such an amazing job...I once had to stay awake for 24 hours at work...so I totally understand that you put all your heart and soul in this...specially because you did it for the better good. You're such an example to follow, a role model and really, really good friend -:')

Excuse me...Can I have 30+ seconds of your time?

Our beloved Craig Cmehil wrote a blog called You and your 30 seconds! Asking us to produce a 30+ seconds video with us talking about ourselves.

Why I think this is important?

1.- It's always fun to shoot a video.

2.- It's nice to about yourself -;)

3.- Actually...You're promoting yourself and helping to gain more visibility.

4.- You're doing for a good cause

So why don't you pick you cam recorder, webcam, camera or whateever and tell us who you are -:)
