All The Best
THE ELEPHANT BAR IS CLOSED
I want to thank everyone who participated in the Elephant Bar over the past twelve years. We had millions of visitors from all around the World and you were part of it. Over the past dozen years, two or three times a night, I would open my laptop and some of you were always there. I will miss that.
My plans are to continue my work with technology and architecture. You know my interests and thoughts.
At times, things would get a little rough in the EB. To those of you that I may have offended over the years, I apologize. From all of you, I learned and grew.
An elephant never forgets.

First Video and live NASA feed confirm Rover landing on Mars
Live broadcasting by Ustream The $2.5 billion mission saw the one-ton, six-wheeled, nuclear-powered vehicle blaze through the pink Martian sky and touch down inside an ancient crater. After a journey that had lasted eight months, and covered 352 million miles of space, Curiosity performed a series of aerial acrobatics before landing safely near the equator. Jubilant scientists hugged, wept and distributed Mars chocolate bars to each other as one of them announced: "Touchdown confirmed. We are wheels down on Mars. Oh, my God." Minutes later Curiosity sent back pictures showing one of it wheels, and its own shadow on the Martian surface. Curiosity is Nasa’s seventh landing on Earth’s neighbour but the most ambitious and expensive.
