Only in NY

Friday, September 23, 2011 

Yes, the fire truck is on fire.
I smelled burning plastic from across the street and looked up to see a smoke plume coming out of the passenger cabin of the ladder truck across the street.  They seem to have put it out before the truck burned.  They are firemen after all.
Even better, it is parked in front of FDNY gifts.

How the “cloud” REALLY works

Tuesday, June 7, 2011 

Remember: everything you post to the cloud is ephemeral and public, no matter what the vendor promises.

Only use the cloud in cases where it does not matter if the data is there tomorrow or not or never again, and data you’d be willing to publish on a tumblr page.  If the data is sensitive or the remote record is important, do not trust 3rd party services.  Don’t be stupid.

Science Experiments

Monday, April 11, 2011 

Home from Afghanistan to find some very interesting science experiments waiting for me.

Yogurt residue grew into a lovely pattern of furriness. Almost makes you want to pet it.


Coffee beans should have been fairly sterile after making coffee, so perhaps the mold there was donor from the yogurt cup.


Whatever was left over in the plastic container seemed to seed a variety of mold types.


A strong dose of bleach and some scrubbing got everything sterile again.

AT&T guy visits our house to check our T1

Thursday, September 16, 2010 

AT&T hates poor neighborhoods. They come up with some wacky excuses not to go if they can. We were waiting for a few months on the install of a T1 line and while the Covad guys were totally cool, the AT&T guys did everything they could not to service the deal.

Running out of excuses for missing calls, they decided to claim there was “toxic waste at the site.” We ended up in a big pissing match between Covad and AT&T with Covad finally offering to chaperon the AT&T guys through the process. They couldn’t really refuse that, so they came in their toxic waste suits. We missed them the first time through, but we had some line errors and they had to come back. Having foolishly called it toxic waste, they had to come in the suit. I wish we had a picture of the Covad guy and maybe Isabella with the AT&T guy all bundled up, but no such luck.

This is basically the technology world’s version of “redlining” where certain neighborhoods are denied access to technology. Pretty funny though, in this case the excuses, once made, ended up being a nice extra measure of discomfort.
