View HTML Color

Occasionally, I need to see what an HTML color looks like.  This site was useful.

Google Chrome is an Operating System

I generally liked the look and feel of Google's Chrome browser when I first tried it.  Today I found the Google Chrome Task Manager. There is more at Google Chrome's Full List of Special about: Pages.

There is a good introductory video at 10 Features of Google Chrome.  Quite impressive.

Solar Noon

I have an uncommon interest in timezones and solar patterns.  A while ago I wondered where in the MST does the timezone time and the solar time match.  

One way to find out is to find the location where is it solar noon on an equinox day.  A friend of mine used to figure out that Albuquerque is where solar noon and MST noon are the same (see chart).  Kind of funny that is always daylight savings on the equinox days.

I just noticed that the spring equinox is not noon.  I am not sure what that means.
