Seriously ?

Let’s get into the Christmas spirit!

Snap87

Since Santa’s visit is in less than 10 days, we thought it was time to get into “Christmas carol mode”.

But of course, not just any classic song! No! Our  selection only includes tunes by movie or TV series actors. Of course.

You’ll have to agree with me, though, that actors are NOT singers.

The Avengers  do prove my point:

But the star of “christmas mashup” is definitely  the Star Trek crew:

 

Unless you prefer Chewbacca singing a pretty tune… (did you know there was such a thing as the Star Wars Xmas album ??)

See for yourself:

And last, but not least, do you know this guy?

Yes, it’s none other than Sir Christopher Lee, who played the likes of Dracula or Saruman (in the Lord of the Ring). This fine actor has judged necessary, at the fine age of 92, to release a “Heavy Metal Christmas” single.

Listen at your own risk:

Happy Holiday!

Win a VSO Software license!

greenstuff

It’s green, it’s alive, it sometimes floats, it sits on my desk in a bowl with pebbles and I never need to feed it.

I’ve named it Oscar and it’s supposed to give me inspiration and peace of mind.

Any idea what it is?

Send me your guess,  I’ll handpick one winner amongst the answers received by Monday 17th. The winner will receive a license of a VSO program of its choice (except Goldmember).

(I’ll accept the real name, the latin one, as well as its various known nicknames. If you have no idea what it is,  you can try to make it up, if it makes me laugh, you’re in the draw! 😆 )

Update: The competition is now over. It looks like there weren’t any biology specialists amongst the participants! The green stuff is a Marimo, a Japanese Algae…   But Ralph suggested it was a hairpiece for VSO’s boss, so he wins!

BEST DAY OF THE YEAR

capslock2

We are gathered here my friends, in order to celebrate the most amazing  day EVER: Wednesday, October, 22nd!  (drumrolls)

I give you:

INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY

No I’m not kidding, this really exists: It’s a whole day dedicated to writing in CAPITALIZED LETTERS, which drives most people crazy (so, for people over 60, it’s just a normal day)

In other words:  “CAPS LOCK DAY IS A CELEBRATION OF LIFE AND FOREVER SCREAMING TEXT FOR ALL ETERNITY AND LOVE”

In fact it’s so awesome that it’s celebrated not once, but twice every year!!! (next one is on June 28th, write it down in your diary)

So get ready: you have 24 hours of heaven with the perfect excuse to shout at anyone you like (or don’t like, for that matter) using caps lock! YAY!

OK? GET THAT? NOW GO TRY TO LOG ON YOUR ACCOUNTS WITH THE CAPS LOCK KEY ON

Say goodbye to your day’s productivity!

Whether, you’re bored, in procrastinate mood or like me, sick with a big cold , (or simply, because it’s Friday), I have the answer to brighten up your day!

Warning: If you have an urgent assignment to do/ have to go pick up the kids from school or have a pizza cooking in the oven, don’t read further. We decline all responsability!

  Live zoo webcams

I don’t understand why live zoo webcams are not compulsory at every workplace.. They are the answer to EVERYTHING!

Just had an argument with a coworker ? Go check on the meerkats at London Zoo to cool down.

 

The vending machine stole your money ? The otters will make you forget all about it.

 

Need inspiration for that report  you are presenting in 15 mins ? Go focus on the elephant’s antics at the National Zoo!

The San Diego Zoo also has a koala and a panda cam! How awesome is that?

 

Geoguessr

This app is as awesome as it is addictive. If you are a traveler at heart, or just curious, or just lucky, give Geoguessr a try! (I didn’t say “one” try, because that’s just impossible).

The concept is simple: a StreetView image opens and the challenge is to figure out where you are in the world.

At VSO Software we use Geoguessr to arbitrate any argument or issue.  If we want a pay rise, we challenge the boss to a game of Geoguessr!! (Well not really but this is definitely something we should consider…)

 Procatinator

Why are there still wars in the world, when we have Procatinator ??? I mean: a great song coupled with a picture of a cat.  Or another one. Or another one …?????

Chickens on a raft

And last , but not least, an awesome breed between the most stupid and brilliant idea ever. Cannot believe a human brain invented this website and was NOT rewarded by a nobel prize!

 

Now go and do some work!

The world’s 1st Cheerleading robots

As reported by Wall Street Journal,

Murata Manufacturing Co., a Japanese maker of parts for smartphones and other electronics, has introduced what it describes as the world’s first cheerleading robots.

The robots, which Murata showed off Thursday, balance on balls to move around and wave plastic pompons in the air. Gyro sensors inside the robots allow them to stay upright while moving. At a demonstration in Tokyo, a troupe of 10 of the robots moved around in unison to form circles, squares and heart formations, to the bouncy accompaniment of J-pop music.

Is that the solution to the recent NFL Buffalo Bills opening game without their cheerleading team ?
