When you gotta Go

You don’t need to go to the extreme lengths that this woman went to, but you could.  Actually, I don’t think that you could.  I don’t think it would dry or harden as much.  Also I’m not sure why she had an entire carton of litter in her bag at school.  Also, I know that this is staged but it’s still crazy.  Totally worth of the WTF subreddit.

Wine Cooled PC

You can file this under the folder of “why?”, but someone decided to make a liquid cooled PC, which instead of using water, or coolant, they used wine.  Yes, they now can serve warm mulled wine to guests 60°C in a few hours.  I don’t drink Mulled Wine, but according to them, that’s the perfect drinking temperature, who knew?!

Wine PC-1

wine-pc 2

It’s odd, but hey it’s not like something crazy like this hasn’t been done before.  People used oil to cool their computers.

Check out some more of the photos on Imgur.

Server Issues

I thought that I had everything worked out, but it seems like there are still issues with the new server.  There was a power blip this morning.  For realz, half a second of no power to restart everything (apparently the server is not plugged into the UPS, I should fix that).  The server started up perfectly fine, but the shared folders within the VMs didn’t mount properly.  I thought it was something I could remote into and fix but there was something else wrong and I needed to wait until I got home from work to fix it.

Ugh, never a dull moment here.

Super cool Toy Car Tracks

It’s Christmas time and little kids all over the world are worrying about what Santa is going to give them more than what the spirit of the season is all about.  Well in order to bring their hopes and dreams down, I’m going to show them a set of insane Hot Wheels tracks that they wish they could build and they wish Santa would bring them.

It’s too late now mommy and daddy, you can’t get this stuff anymore.

I like the first one in the skate park, that was pretty ace.

Here’s a better view of #6, it’s not a track it’s an art installation.  Boring.  I do like the speed scale though, that’s ridiculous.  It goes to show that you would never withstand the G-Forces of it.

Number 4 is ridiculous.  There are wooden loops, it’s reminiscence of Action Park in it’s high qualityness.

Number 2 is pretty awesome, from it’s humble beginnings.  It looks simple but then you see how gar along the house and the yard that it goes.  I do like #1 with the PVC pipes holding the track for parts of it.  Pretty neat.

Anyway Enjoy Children.  And if you’ve managed to build a track of equal or better value, let me know.

What happens when you Breath In Noble Gas

Crazy things.  Of course you know that helium gives you chipmunk voice. The others get surprising.  I think my favorite is Xenon, “It almost feels like it’s attracted to the ground”.

It should be noted that this is something you should never do as they very likely can kill you if done in excess and done without any thought to safety.  This guy seems like he should not be doing them.  Especially not with anyone around to help him.  But hey, he good for him.

Rollercoaster Tycoon – Unreal Style

It’s no secret (or it shouldn’t be anyway), that I love Rollercoaster Tycoon.  I spent many hours of my youth building parks.  Sometimes playing the scenarios, oftentimes just screwing around trying to build giant parks.  My favorites were building multiple mile long coasters with dozens of inversions, yet still trying to keep the ratings down to levels to get peeps to ride it.  In my later years, I got into some more advanced coasters with scenery and interaction between racing or dueling coasters.

My most recent favorites are The Dark Masters, 4 dueling coasters named of course after the Dark Masters in Digimon.

Anyway, imagine what RCT would be like with the above.  It’d be pretty neat wouldn’t it?

Houses are a lot of Work

I apologize for my lack of posts this year.  In case you didn’t know, I bought a house.  Houses are a lot of work.  It’s taken me plenty of time this year getting things set up the way I want them, then spending more time fixing things, and then spending even more time relaxing and going to bed early because I’m exhausted and don’t want to do anything anymore.

I know what you’re thinking.  Is this the end of the blog?

No.

Big N. O. No.

I will remain.

RollerCoaster Tycoon Calculator

It might be a secret, though it’s not anymore, I love RollerCoaster Tycoon. It’s my favorite computer game. I’ve spent countless hours playing the game, beating the scenarios, making my own crazy parks. I’ve hit the object limit in a park before and it sucks when you have a really ace park. OpenRCT2 aims to fix that issue. I’ve yet to try out that version of the game, though it looks promising.

I enjoy playing the game and making big interesting parks.  While I am a programmer, the thought of programing a calculator into the game is beyond me.  That’s what Marcel did though.  And it’s dang impressive.

The end of an Era

Earlier this month something unbelievable happened, StumbleUpon closed down.  I didn’t know it was founded in 2002.  I started using it in 2005, or 2006 I think.  I can’t remember exactly, I’m pretty sure that I started using the site well before that blog post, but who knows.

Endless hours, nay, days were spent stumbling across the internet.  I found many a strange photo, or comic, or video.  Some interesting natural? formations.  The whole basis of the Going Green series of posts started from some stumbles.  I had interesting conversations with people, sadly I can’t remember any of their names.

It all started with that browser add-on.  You know, back in the hay-day of browser add-ons.  You couldn’t open someone’s browser without 36 different things opening up, stealing all your cookies, and making life really weird.  Yet back then, no one cared.  I gladly stumbled all over the internet, well into the morning hours.  Things slowed down when I switched to the Chrome browser.  And things practically disappeared when the browser add-on turned more into an iframe.  I guess SU wanted even more of our dataz.  It might have been around this time that they changed their logo from the cool green SU to the strange ugly orange.  I see that as the death of them.

I honestly not have known that they were shutting down had it not been for this Reddit Post.

Regardless, me and my 42k likes will live on forever.  They might not be relevant, they might not even exist anymore, but good golly, they were some great times wasted away on the immature internetz.
