So Meng is the featured googler of "all the president's Meng" or "meng's wall" display at the google visitor center

He was the exuberant engineer who always wanted a picture with the famous person visiting

So eventually famous people asked to get pictures with Meng. And that is how you do it

How tcp sends data 

Why TCP Over TCP Is A Bad Idea

Why TCP Over TCP Is A Bad Idea. A frequently occurring idea for IP tunneling applications is to run a protocol like PPP, which encapsulates IP packets in a format suited for a stream transport (like a modem line), over a TCP-based connection. This would be an easy solution for encrypting tunnels ...

Classic painting from the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles (built with Oil $$$)

https://www.google.com/culturalinstitute/u/0/asset-viewer/a-young-girl-defending-herself-against-eros/WwG4E841q7Lwgg?projectId=art-project

A Young Girl Defending Herself against Eros - William Adolphe Bouguereau (French, 1825 - 1905) - Google Cultural Institute

A young nude woman sits with her arms outstretched, pushing away a winged boy. He is Cupid, the god of love, holding up an arrow to pierce her. The title
suggests that the young woman is trying to defend herself, yet she smiles and struggles unconvincingly against the mischievous little god. Visitors to the Paris exhibitions of the 1870s and 1880s loved Adolphe Bougereau's

I think aggieband.com has cost me ~$17 a year to maintain since I registered it in 1997. So going on 20 years for < $400

Since this will almost certainly go for closer to $1000 before the auction ends I think I got the better deal

La Primavera (Spring) - Botticelli Filipepi - Google Cultural Institute

Commissioned by Lorenzo and Giovanni di Pierfrancesco de' Medici, cousins of Lorenzo il Magnifico, in 1498 this painting was in their florentine residence. Probably based on a theme suggested by Poliziano, it depicts a symbolic and allegorical subject with a complex interpretation: the Realm of Venus. Zephyr chases the nymph Chloris, who turns into the goddess Flora at right. Venus is underneath a blindfolded Cupid in flight with the three Graces...
