Why technology is so cool…

I just received my coupon for a free foursome (golf and cart) at Falcon Lakes GC here in north KC.  How did I get this?  Well…

My good buddy Brad Axon was in town from San Fran for the Kansas City Golf Show.  He works for the Golf Channel and they had a booth there.  We communicated via fb and text, to get me a free pass to the show and I met him there.  Once at the golf show, I ‘checked-in’ using fb on my Evo.  Andy Mahlandt saw that I was at the show on fb and happened to be listening to 810 sports and they announced that…”the first person at our booth here at the golf show gets a free foursome”!

So Andy texted me and told me to run to the 810 booth, so I did and I won!  Winner!

Simulating A Right-Click From The Keyboard

I have been doing quite a bit of LogMeIn (IT Reach and Rescue) lately and sometimes my mouse right-click does not work to get context menus.  Therefore, if you ever have this issue, just select the icon or item you need and press [Shift] [F10].  I am sure Tim could have told me this, but he wasn't here :)
