Wasting Time

I’ve balanced the schedule, seen all my patients, finished my (EMR) charts and blogged. What does a geek do? Surf the net of course. Here’s a list of my 5 favourite ways to piss away a couple of minutes between patients.

Try and predict the weather (to the hour). Tracking weather is more of winter sport in Canada to figure out if you’re going to have the next day off. The NCEP is hands-down the most accurate model. During the summer, tracking hurricanes is a good substitute for snow storms*

Search for the best hotel in the world. My current find is the Wakaya Club (I figured if Keith Richards can fall out of a palm tree there it must be good).

Day dream about mountain biking in Moab

Figure out how to create cool HDR (High Dynamic Range) images like these (below is a snowy night in Waterloo)

Search the Proceedings of the Old Bailey. The punishments were gruesome and the trials are fascinating.
Always looking for more good sites so let me know your fav's.
