I know, that was mean. And probably a little over 10,000 ft, as Rainier itself is 14,410ft. Keshav has posted some early information about Project 2010, but to hear more you will need to wait for the Project Conference in September – and it is certainly worth waiting for!
The other Office client applications are making some earlier disclosures and there is already some cool stuff on the blogs about the other Office applications – and my favorite so far is the Excel 2010 Sparklines posting from Sam Radakovitz. The Excel blog is also a good starting point for other 2010 content – just go to their links section on the lower right.
I knew Mt Rainier was about 14k ft, but I turned to Bing for the answer (and Mt Rainer looked nearly this good from ground level this morning on my drive to work). The picture above was taken just after take-off from SeaTac on my recent vacation – which is also the reason I haven’t been too quick replying to recent comment posts to the blog… I’ll try and do some catching up next week.
Cool pic Brian,
I went all the way to Alaska to see mountains and glaciers similar to Mt Rainier when i could have just stayed in the lower 48.
Ayway, on a "technical" note, Wikipedia has the elevation for Mt Rainier at 14411 - a difference of 1 foot from what Bing reported. I dont know if this qualifies as a technical glitch with Bing but thought i would let you know:)
Thanks Larkland :). USGS also has 14410 - but many others have 14411. With temperatures around here hitting triple digits yesterday I'd guess even Rainier lost some snow - but do Mountains expand in the heat???
Volcanoes are like our ears and noses. . . they keep growing. Rainier is slowly growing. When I was a kid it was 14,410. I think the sites that put it at 14,411 are more recent.
Thanks KW. It is when they get shorter - Like Mt St Helens - that we need to worry!
