I’m making “of the day” public. It’s been an in-joke for a while. It started as “Quote of the Day” then expanded to take in whatever weirdness caught my attention. So, train of thought of the day… I’m sitting in the hot tub drinking a beer while it’s snowing. Big fluffy flakes drifting slowly down.Continue reading “Train of Thought otd”
The hot tub is not only filled, it is hot. It hasn’t killed me, yet. I did kill my network swapping out the firewall. Tip: It doesn’t matter what your iptable forwarding rules are if IP forwarding is not enabled. Next steps: Renumber the virtual machines and add the names to PiHole.
Abby, our dance instructor, said that she expected hot tub pictures. I told her they would be blogged. Then I realized that there is nothing here about dancing. So, let’s start the dance category with some questions for Abby. Dear Abby,My partner keeps stepping on my foot during the last step of the waltz insideContinue reading “Dear Abby”
Strawberry Toaster Pastries I think I’ve got it. The reaction of the crochet group: “Keep practicing – and can we have a poppy seed filling, next time?” The dough was a bit dry, but I resisted the urge to add water. After two hours in the refrigerator, it was still dry, so I added aContinue reading “Learning 2 Bake – from Scratch XXIV”
The cluster is sitting there doing its thing. I figured out why Cassandra is such a memory hog: It queries the system memory when it starts and allocates 3/4 of it. Oh sure, there is a limit: 18GB. I haven’t done anything about it, but now I know. The stuff I’m writing that uses theContinue reading “Tech Update”
I forgot to post this. It was a busy weekend. On Friday, I dug out the boot polishing stuff and did my – in dire need of – boots. I was trying to convince my dance instructor to improve his poor shoes before a competition. It worked. On Saturday, The Laird and I went toContinue reading “Boots, Broncs, Breads”
The bottom glowy bit just arrived. I think it adds a nice symmetry. There is no such thing as RGB addiction. Really.
This is ridiculous. Page 2: ! DANGER: RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DROWING! four bullet points. ! DANGER: RISK OF SEVERE INJURY OR DROWING! five bullet points. ! DANGER: RISK OF SEVERE INJURY FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK OR DEATH FROM ELECTROCUTION! seven bullet points (bleeding on to page 3). Oddly, hair dryers are not called outContinue reading “Hibernating Menace!”
This seems to fit me. I found it at the PowerLine week-in-pictures, so I have no idea how to attribute it. And there is a word for words that are spelled the same but pronounced differently (e.g. “record a record”), but I don’t remember what it is; “grafonym” or “homograf” maybe? I had never realizedContinue reading “Cross Disciplinary”
I needed to make chili for a contest. All my favorite recipes are packed in a box, somewhere. So, I looked up a recipe, which I’ve already lost the link to, to be sure I had the proportions right and winged it. I didn’t want to spend all night on it, so I parallel pipelinedContinue reading ““Hurry Up and Wait” Chili”
