Nuts and Bolts

The other month, MSN added "themes" to Windows Live. Most are fairly straightforward, but there are a few Dynamic Themes that give you different header-images depending on the weather and the time of day.

I'm far too fond of the very late night (I think it kicks in around 3 AM?) pre-dawn clear-weather one in the Robot Dynamic Theme. If it's cloudy, it's the same thing but with clouds in the background.

It's great. It's like the "YOU CAN BE HAPPY" [adult swim] static bump.

Earlier in this particular montage, the robot's welding something in the afternoon (no clue what he's up to between 6 AM and noon, since I'm not awake), then is flying around the remote-controlled toy rocket it made in the evening, then using a radar-dish (I guess to track the rocket?) in the night. Apparently once the rocket gets out of range, the robot nods off and ends up being subletted for acorn storage.
