Are we back?

I think it’s safe to say that we’re back in business. Something of a perfect storm of events happened late last week. The MySQL server went down and I got some new hardware in to tinker with the server. Since the server went down, I decided to re-work a few things and try out something new. I think I like it, but as usual not everything is working 100% things will slowly get back up to speed over the coming days…I hope.

U-2 Carrier Landing

The U-2 is a unique plane, it’s 100 foot wingspan and bicycle landing gear make it tough to land on ground. But I just found out that it is capable of carrier landing and take-offs. That is simply crazy!

The Day

The Music Died.

Most of us have no relocation of this day as it happened in 1959, but countless people have been influenced by the terrible day in music history.

I came across this article a few weeks ago, yes it might be over 10 years old, but it goes into great detail about things related to that day.

You all should remember it.

That is all.

National Penguin Awareness Day

I had no idea today is National Penguin Awareness Day. I had no idea that was a thing. But apparently it is, it’s a holiday, though not for the reasons above.

One of the key reasons we choose New Zealand for our Honeymoon was the chance to see Penguins. We got to see 3 or 4 of them while we were at Lake Moeraki Lodge, it took a few hours to wait for them, but it was worth it to see the ocean deposit those dumbs to the shore.

Nagasaki

The decisive end to World War 2 came about 74 years ago today with the Atomic bombing of the port city of Nagasaki.  The Empire of Japan having not really believed what happened a few days prior at Hiroshima did not head the warning the US was giving and as such, something terrible happened.

Thankfully those weapons of mass destruction have never been used against other people again.  Hopefully the peace will continue for many more decades to come.

Debate 0.5

There’s a Vice Presidential debate on tonight.  I doubt it will be as interesting to watch as the Presidential ones.  You should watch it though, these are your second in command people.

Pearl Harbor

Attack on Pearl Harbor

Another year has gone by, another few gallons of oil have seeped out of The Arizona, but still, time marches on, and still we remember.  The people effected might no longer be with us, but the memories of them, are still.  And the actions, both directly, and indirectly, changed the course of history.  All of us alive now owe it to the Japs for making that poor decision 74 years ago.  Remember that.

But also, remember the thousands of soldiers killed in the attack that changed the world.
