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 … Continued
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 … Continued

When it was over, the president of the school announced it to us all (it was only around 9am). We went back to our classrooms and watched it unfold throughout the day. Some … Continued
You may or may not have noticed, but the blog has some new shoes on. A few weeks ago the server went kapoot. I don’t know exactly what happened, I think there was a storm and surge and the server wouldn’t boot. Either way, the server is up and running now. I had been in … Continued
California is on fire. (What else is new). However, this summer fires closed Yosemite Valley for an extended period of time. The valley wasn’t at risk of the fire, rather the wind was pushing the smoke into the valley and causing very bad air quality.
