Server Issues

0

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

Rollercoaster Tycoon – Unreal Style

0

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 … Continued

The Infamous day was Seventy Seven years ago.  The speech will happen tomorrow.  But the day is today.  Remember it.

Houses are a lot of Work

0

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 … Continued

17 Years

The world changed forever 17 years ago.  I remember, I was in highschool, at our welcome to the new school year Mass.  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

New Shoes

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

Yosemite is Open 360

0

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.  Recently the park re-opened, reddit user cesar1894 shared this video … Continued

The end of an Era

0

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 … Continued

It’s the 4th of July, Happy Birthday America.  Welcome to the greatest Country in the history of the world.  The world’s history is short, as {Fireworks!}

Yosemite HD Timelapse

0

Did you know that I’ve been to Yosemite National Park?  It’s up there as my top 3 favorites.  Along with Gates of the Arctic, and The Grand Tetons.  There’s something special about Yosemite though.  It’s one of the few parks which I’ve been to more than once.  And I’d love to go back there again … Continued
