Fishtank – Redux

All I can say is … Holy Shit. That is one GODDAMN big tank.
<edit>And after further searching around, I found this one as well. Hot damn.</edit>


Phish – Rift

I just don’t know. Every time I listen to this album I remember why I started listening to Phish in the first place. Although the discussion is of course disputable between individual Phishheads, this is the hands-down best album imho. There’s not a single bad song in the bunch, and several of them just shine out as diamonds amidst all the other precious stones. Not sure why I wanted to make special note of this now, but whatever.

Let the cleansing begin…

So my wife’s Mom is coming to visit later today, and staying for a week. This sort of thing always is preceeded by a tremendous effort to clean the house and make things reasonably presentable. Try to mix that in with trying to get enough sleep and still spending time with the other usual weekly activities, and you invariably fall short on something. In this case, sleep. Read more


A couple more…

I added a couple more themes. So here they are, in no particular order:


pebkac update

So every once in awhile, a misdiagnosis of a problem is a godsend. A few nights ago, I was seeing problems on pebkac, so I logged in to take a closer look, and every single command I typed was failing miserably. Suspecting that the box had been rooted, I had the machine turned off until I could take a closer look and do the necessary cleanup and such. Read more
