Our monitoring team replaced their old servers with new servers last year and a new version. Unfortunately the servers aren't powerful enough to crunch through more than a few thousand alarms before taking a dump so they only save alarms for 48 hours. This makes it impossible for us to do any trending and management of alarms, especially since the monitoring software isn't capable of generating a report of just what it is monitoring.

On my own, I added a central email account to our group email account. Our group email receives the alarms from monitoring of course. This puts every alarm into a central mailbox. I started this in 2009 so I have about 350,000 alarms in various mailboxes (I roll them once a year).

Yesterday I parsed out relevant information from each email and imported all 350,000 alarms into my inventory database which associated the alarms with servers and gives me a long term view at the environment. I've set up an automated process that now parses each email and imports it into the database so we have accurate information and have our alarms for long term trending. I also whipped up a couple of scripts to provide the view into the alarms.

Currently you can only select a date range but today I'll be adding bits to display alarms on the individual server detail page and adding a search feature so you can filter information even further. I also will create a report with the number alarms for each server by year, etc, more of a management view of the alarming than the trending stuff we sysadmins want to do.


Part two is after 7 years of working on my Inventory program including the recent upgrade to 3.0, and after the "official" inventory conversion team (importing from the "official" inventory tool, which only manages physical assets) has refused over and over to use information that's in my "unofficial" "unapproved" inventory too, one of the VPs has instructed the team that my tool is much more complete and is the "database of record" for inventory and that they will use my inventory data to provide all the details that the "official" inventory asset tracking database has.

So I'm writing scripts to extract data from my inventory tool in a format that can be used to import it into the new "Asset Tracking ITIL CMDB" system.

*wheee*

Watching The Eagles Farewell Tour I in Australia.

Hacking some code, making a few minor changes to keep lusers from being stupid ( :)  a Detail record has to have an associated Server record or it won't display in the group server listing but there's nothing that forces them to do so and no check to make sure so I'm updating the code so they get a popup warning message).

Updating the code to use a jQuery popup vs the javascript popup (alert or confirm box) which doesn't give me much in the way of control. Using the same jQuery code to create a popup form vs an on-page form which confuses the lusers. It's already working in one of the modules so I just need to recode the bits in the other places.

Garage weekend...

Worked on the York A/C compressor mounting. It'll be used not for A/C but for a standard air compressor. It is one type that has it's own lubricating crankcase so I don't have to hassle with lube oil in the airstream (add oil on the suction port of the compressor then remove it on the discharge port before being fed into a tire). It seems I need to remove the odd 1-V belt pulley from the compressor and find a dual pulley. So, for now, it's remove the york stuff and put it back to original (done). Tire fill should go from crazy long (Carl remembers sitting at the eastern portal of the Moffat train tunnel for 16 Minutes per tire for the small compressor to air them up) to 4 minutes per tire with a larger electric unit. The York should be in the 30 to 50 second range and permanently mounted [under the hood] and out of the way of passenger storage.

Reinstalled the radiator. The upper mounts were loose and I didn't wish the mounts to rub through the upper rad cap. Off to the rad shop a few days back. First time to Fort Collins Radiator. I did a quick search for rad shop reviews and chose the downtown location (I try to take my biz to a good quality shop who also is an independent and downtown - small, old shops keeping downtown alive). I walk in and the guy immediately gets a smile and says - early 90's jeep wrangler! He was perfectly correct! He said those were the good ones - before the company went plastic end caps that leaked under the abuse they get offroading. A good opening to the service I hoped to receive. I showed the issue and said give it a review, call if anything crops up. Couple days later it was done. Picked it up and he said he also fixed a small leak from the top (I never knew it had a leak - nice to have it fixed). I'd go back and refer them to others.

Changed the front differential fluid tonight. I had the differential lock replaced last spring and this was it's "500 mile" service. I don't think the front diff had more than 200 miles on it all season. It doesn't spin unless the jeep's in 4WD or the front wheel hubs are locked in - which is only on a trail.

Changed oil.

Replaced the valve cover gasket. It'll be nice to not have a seep of oil at the front of the motor.

Now for some turn signal & headlight switch replacement (which should be easy - but for tomorrow).

Perhaps Tuesday I'll hit some local trails

Any locals wish to join in? Don, Carl, Joe...  (Is Joe Bikerfish1000 here - doesn't look like it)

In addition to Pez there are also some select other toys in the museum.  My favorite non-Pez display was for the banned toys.  Toys banned by the government.  Such as Lawn Darts.  The best banned toy was the Atomic Energy Lab.  When first sold, it included 4 jars containing radioactive samples.

Friday, I firmed up the schedule for the shoulder surgery. 6/22. I also went to work at the office, but then we closed up around 3pm, because Friday.

Saturday I spent the day with my daughter Sarah, took her to a movie, hung out at home a little bit, and dropped off Liz's dad's resume with my boss. Pretty mellow day all around.

Today I'm picking up a Savage 650 from an old high school friend to get it roadworthy for her. It's been sitting a few years and she's gonna toss a few bucks at me to get it back to running.

Identified the squeaka squeaka noise coming from the left front wheel of my truck. 

Loose lugnuts????  Ugh.  That was terrifying.  Did the brakes a few weeks ago.  I can't imagine that we didn't tighten them back up or that it would have taken weeks to present an issue.  They're aftermarket lugs so I'm afraid that the location of the new digs just beats the truck more than before.  I'll be redoubling my efforts to check the lugs periodically.

Hauled a big load to the dump with my truck and trailer, met my buddy Craig for afternoon beer and wings on the patio, got fitted for some new FRC safety wear for work, hit up Canadian Tire for some needful items for the garage, weed killed the front lawn, and went shopping for groceries for the week.

Off to work tomorrow AM for 7 fun filled days.

Yesterday was my day off from the kids! (daycare day, woo!)

I:
* Submitted payroll for my mom's two caregivers
* Took Alex's 17 month pics, height, and weight for my kids blog
* Took the kids to daycare
* Had a personal training session at the park
* Updated the kids blog
* Made a couple of appointments
* Watched Deadliest Catch
* Went through my closet and filled a bag with donations
* Caught up on email
* Set up a Task Rabbit to run an errand for me
* Met with a friend for an hour
* Picked up the kids from daycare
* Set up new patio furniture with my brother
* Dinner with kids and brother
* Painted with kids
* Gave kids bath
* Put kids to bed
* Hung out with hubby, bro, and bro's girlfriend

So, a pretty normal day off.  :lol:  I actually felt a little bit slacking.

I don't need it and really had no business buying it.

I played one at a local shop a few months ago, loved it, thought about it for a couple days and went back to buy it at full price. It was gone. It was a 2013 left over. They said they couldn't get a hold of another one. MF had a 'Stupid Deal of the Day" on it today. $300 off. I snapped.

I guess that Gretch is going to wait a while.

I spent the day yesterday, heads down, revamping the Course<->Standards correlation (oh, that crazy Common Core!) in the lesson-builder application we're writing, then Liz took me to Bone Fish Grill for dinner 'cause she decided I needed a break. That was a fine dinner. She treats me entirely too well.  :inlove:

If all goes well, I'll have a box from bike Bandit waiting for me after work, and this evening will be some garage work, getting the Reflex 250 running, and maybe the Savage I'm working on for an old high school friend.

Or I'll veg in front of the tv. :shrug:

That's pretty!

The one I ordered is black just because that's the one that was on sale. It's kind of an oddball guitar. It has an asymmetrical neck which is super comfortable but a little strange when you're used to a Stratocaster baseball bat. They used the Steinberger gearless tuners like on the Firebird. The ratio is supposed to be 40:1. I'm not sure how they do that if they really are gearless. I'm not crazy about the look of the Zebracoil pickups. I may add a set of nickel covers.

One caveat--it did involve a 340 mile round trip by me on my Suzuki into the hell of the Central Valley's blast furnace, but it was worth it.

If I don't have a supported phone, must I buy one or will the company provide one? At least one sysadmin has a flip phone and one dba doesn't have a personal phone.

Will the monitoring environment be fixed so we don't get a shitload of pages when some stupid switch takes a crap or due to slow network connectivity between data centers?

Can we just go back to pagers?

I worked in my vegetable garden.  I brought a friend from work to see my garden.  She's a city girl, attractive and only about 30, and hasn't done any gardening, ever.  I showed her how to pick zucchini and fava beans.  Then she came to my home and I showed her how to cook them.  It's OK with my wife.  My wife knows my friend and I'm not in trouble !!  ;D

On a side note, she also had never been on a motorcycle.  I fixed that as well.  I could hear her laughing with excitement several times when accelerating to red line on the Tiger.  I put something exciting between her legs - a motorcycle.

After that shot^ I got in a trail I knew was there but occasionally had weeds over my head.  I could tell where I was going thanks to the trees.  It was a little scary, but I kept it right side up.

It overflowed with suckage, but friend had to do it solo if'n I had bailed...
Sunny, warm and humid.
Poifect day for any form of two-wheeling.

It's rained every single weekend since forever. Hauling the mountain bike to Wisconsin to see if I remember how.


You might want to check the radar.

Made it home about an hour before the rain. Was too excited to be on the bike and pushed too hard; I bonked dangerously bad on the way home and was nodding off behind the wheel.

Still, sunny day with 25 miles of single track, only broken part was my saddle that threw a rail and had to be hiked out the last two miles. Wonderful day.

Yesterday I had a rotator cuff fixed and something or another done to my bicep tendon. Today I've been taking perkocet and dilauded.

This hurts worse than the full knee replacement.

Today.

My idiot youngest called me from Spain at 0200 saying he was 43p short for a taxi and could I send him some money.

I didn't sleep well after that and got up at the usual time of 0445. I was planning to sleep until 0700 as I had an important interview at 0910 a mere 15 miles away.

Got to my car (had to wear a suit). Car was broken.

Wifey lent me her car.

Found I'd lost my mobile phone.

Start to panic. Like idiot son.

Gave a duff interview.  :bash: I needed that job. What an idjut.

Went home, gave wifey her car back and drove the bike around the horrible motorways to work.

IT had removed my computer. I had a major report on that computer. I leave work tomorrow and IT have fecked up again. Bastards.

Had various meetings. Everyone unhappy because of 50% redundancies. Great gloom at work.

IT still hasn't fixed things. Fecking IT.

Gave up at 1530 and went home.

since MIL took the kiddies, wife and I went test driving for her next vehicle (current test drive faves - #1. Ford Explorer Sport TTv6 & #2. Jeep GC Summit). Only drove the Nissan Pathfinder. Loved it!! Toyota Highlander - W.T.F.!!  Door seals are your selling point? Mazda CX-9 - W.T.H.!! SO ARCHAIC it didn't even warrant a door opening. might hit Honda some other day. No GMs in consideration.

according to her...

#1 (by a smidge) - Nissan  (mainly for the price point. even fully loaded, still a bunch cheaper than the Ford)
#2 - Ford
#3 - Jeep

In the last week my truck died, K's Hyundai died, my ex wifes car was totaled and last night the VW died, leaving us with the bike only.

Got the call yesterday that the truck was ready but I had no way to get there.


Today I replaced a coil pack and put new plugs in the Hyundai.
This is a good thing since I don't want to ride to work in this in the morning.

Did a bunch of spraying, some trail maintenance, and cleared a potential spot for a tree stand at my hunting property.

Caught a little salamander and saw a wolf spider the size of my palm.  Possibly the biggest one I have seen.  I was cutting a log and it came scrambling over the top- that got my attention!  I love working in the woods.

Finally put those leftover bags of quickcrete to use last night by making a wood splitting station.  I had a round concrete...thing.  Not even really sure what it was but it was about 5 feet round and it was a concrete ring about 6 to 8 inches tall and about 4 inches thick.  I went and loaded up a small trailer load of that fine shale and made a base for the ring.  I leveled it out...ish...and placed the ring on it.  Leveled the ring...ish... and proceeded to mix 7 bags of concrete in a wheelbarrow to fill the ring.  2 bags at a time cuz more would just be stupid.  Still managed to come up short by about an inch so I'll need to get more concrete to bring it up to the top of the ring as well as make a 3x3 place for me to stand so I'm not constantly fighting rocks and roots while trying to swing the splitter. 

Chopping firewood will be a very real and very steady part of my future so I might as well make it comfortable.

Wow! Lotta spoons. Lotta plates. Lotta bowls. Lotta sticks.

I'm speechless.

Just put it all in a bucket and give me a ladle. And what the ladle won't pick out; I have fingers.

No need for a secret menu. The regular one was in Chinese so it looked like lots of funky Christmas ornaments to me.

spent my day looking for ideas for organizing my garage. I can NOT wait to start putting things together. I just hope I can get enough time to actually get it done. Since I got married, I have yet to complete a garage before moving again. hmmm, I hope 15 years (the time both kids are done with High School) is enough time.

Drove nearly 3 hours to my brother's house with chainsaws and misc tools in hand.  We dislodged some downed trees (using truck and chains) and proceeded to limb them and carry the brush into the woods then cut the remaining wood to length and stacked it up.  We even split some of the larger logs in hopes that he'll be able to burn them in his new outdoor fireplace.  He's got a very nice couple / few acre lot so it was several hours work but easy work considering.  When he offered me a bunch of cash, I said I'd like to start a family pay it forward campaign so I told him to send it to our other brother who needs cash more.  After doing the work, we went out to dinner and had pretty decent Chinese.  We ended up not getting home till nearly midnight after a nice, uneventful drive home.

(Kevin refused via email and I just got done scolding him for trying to take away my opportunity for kindness and explained to him how pay it forward works.  We'll see how that goes.)

no, I work for a power company (rural electric Coop actually). we just rent the crane and operator when we need to lift something bigger than our digger derricks can lift. In this case a substation transformer. but you are correct it is a special talent.

Got up and had morning coffee on the deck.  Heard a cat mewing somewhere in the yard.  Looked over the railing and saw it was actually a fawn complaining that mom was on the other side of the fence grazing.  Watched fawn run along the fence and bash into it a couple times trying to get to mom.  Walked out to yard and opened up the big gate with minimal fawn freakage.  Fawn eventually figured it out.  Mother & child, doing well.

Not too fancy, but So Much Fun-- parking lot course at Fontana Speedway. Formula Renaults from the early 2000s. Chief instructor was Allen Berg, an almost racing star and with 9 F1 starts (he did several laps with us in a minivan to show us the lines -- that was cool). 20 laps single file behind a pace car, increasing in speed for 7 of us. Then 4 of us did 10 laps at any speed we wanted, passing restricted to turn 1 at the end of the long straight.

First time for me in any purpose built race car. Loved it. I was by far the fastest in the group but that had more to do with them being very slow than me being very good. I got that glory moment of the next group greeting me in the pits with, "Dude, you were hauling ass!" The instructors knew better, though. I got some good tips from the mechanic.

It was my father's day present. Beats the hell out of bad after shave.

First day of new contract yesterday. Arrived in good time but the roads were rammed with traffic-and the car was showing a fault.

Bike to work today, car in garage. It's only 55 miles each way but through the busiest roads in Europe. No problem on a bike, I was making excellent time. Until that broke down too, 10 miles short. There seems to be a problem with the ignition circuit.

For the last 3 years I've been chasing a slow leak on the AC system on the Explorer. Had changed all the O rings, Compressor manifold O rings, and pulled the condenser and had it pressure tested. The last thing to look at was the evaporator condenser. So I proceeded to remove the AC box off the fire wall.

Yep, she's our teammate and fortunately the wheelchair was temporary!  With four minutes left to go in the championship game, she was checked against the boards and went down hard.  Ice rink staff took her off the ice in the wheelchair because she couldn't put weight on the leg.  She went to urgent care after the game and confirmed no fracture, hooray!

On vacation this week so a laundry list of things to do.

Scheduled: Replace windshield in truck. Check the brakes and rotors on the truck.

Done for Monday: Reconfigure workstation so I can continue my Red Hat 7 Exam studies. Bike ride around the lake. Haircut. Review, okay, and submit paperwork for trip to Ireland/Scotland/England/Isle of Man in October. Fix front porch light. Work on some code changes for the systems at work (importing software and versions).

Started the reorg of my game room. It's just too disorganized. Plus beginning/continuing the Red Hat 7 studies.

Still todo today, take Slash out to the park in the afternoon when it's cooler.

Connected one of my Acer 22" monitors, my old Apple Wireless keyboard and Apple Mouse to my MacBook Pro. Fewer pixels but it's easier to read :)

I'll be trying this in the morning to access work and try a few script things out.

Edit: Interesting that I've had this mouse for 11 years now (since I got my first Mac Laptop) and back then I really didn't like it. It was too different than the way I was used to using a mouse (well, trackball) so I put it away. I was getting this workstation thing set up and the Mac auto-discovered the mouse which was off and over tucked in next to a couple of boardgames across the room. I turned it on, brought it over, Paired it, and after using a Mac at work for the past 4 or 5 years, using this mouse seems pretty natural now.

Took the truck in yesterday to have the brakes and rotors checked. It pulses when stopping and the front left makes noise when stopping from time to time (not always).

The guys at Firestone chuckled over the spiderwebs throughout the rear brake assembly (hey, I ride the bike when I can :) ).

They called yesterday afternoon to run over the brake inspection.

New brake pads
Flush the brake fluid
Turn the rotors
Clean out and adjust the rear drums

In addition, they suggested a new battery (rated at 500, at 350 right now). I said to hold off on that. It'll work through the summer and I can snag a new one before winter kicks in. They said the oil was okay but was down a quart or so. No problem, I have oil, I'll take care of that.

Plus the tie rod head was loose and the wheel bearings needed to be repacked.

$500 for the brake stuff, another $250 for the tie rod and wheel bearing work.

Sounds good, go.


Stopped in this morning to get the truck.

Replaced the front rotors. They were too thin after turning. Okay, would have been nice if they'd let me know but I can deal with that.

Took care of the rest without a problem.

As he ran over the inspection, the things I passed on, he mentioned the battery ("yea, I got that"), oil needed to be changed ("you said needed a quart"), the coolant should be flushed ("you didn't mention that at all"), and the differential service ("again, you didn't mention that either").

The coolant I can handle without a problem but differential at $20 I would have said "go for it too" had it been mentioned since they were under the truck anyway. That's why I agreed on the tie rod head and wheel repack. You got the thing apart anyway, take advantage of the situation.


Got to the truck and the seat was all the way forward. Really guys? You couldn't push the seat back?


Part disposal, etc made the total $875.


"Hey, you can save $80 if you get a Firestone credit card."

"Nah, I don't come in all that often and I don't really need another card in my wallet or safe that I don't use."

Washed the camper... for maybe the third time in 5 years.  :)  Replaced the lines that go from the propane tanks to the distributor thingy since one was leaking.  Replaced current propane tanks with full tanks.  Installed new battery.  Tried to get the bent stabilizer bar straight again unsuccessfully.  Put epoxy on large unpleasant looking crack in the front of the camper.  Checked and adjusted pressure in all 4 tires.

Kim cleaned the inside which included removing every single thing in the camper and washing it and scrubbing every surface inside the thing.  It's 31 feet long so that was no small feat.  We're set for an upcoming trip to Maine / New Hampshire.

Had all this done all at once (2005). The SyF was done (poorly) by someone else, so when the guy in LA who calls himself "Dark" was doing the "knots" he also touched up the SyF. Not as much coverage as yours but took about 6 to 8 hours.

We drove down to OH on Thursday to pick up a rescue Australian Kelpie from the humane society. Simone

To go with the one we rescued about 5 months ago (Zoobie) after loosing both our other dogs last year.

We spent a couple hours at the society getting acquainted with Simone and seeing if she got along with Zoobie. They hit it off right off the bat. It was myself and Aura she had a problem with. She was a stray and has been at the rescue for a long time and takes awhile to warm up to people. We spent the night in OH at Hueston Woods park getting used to her and her to us. In 24 hours there was a remarkable improvement in her bonding with us. We got her home last night and Zoobie showed her his backyard and the two of them had a ball. She is such a sweet girl and will hopefully complement the great dog that Zoobie already is. Really happy to have her as part of our little family.  :inlove:

As I was finishing up a guy named Drew from down the road rolled up in his electric golf cart (most everyone in the community has one or an ATV or something to putz around in) and introduced himself. Wound up riding around with him & visiting a whole bunch of folks.  Turns out the community has its own fire truck (the closest 'real' FD is some miles away).  For $100/year and a little training every couple months it's there for anyone who signs up & pays to use if a brush fire happens to breaks out. Pretty fuckin' cool.  :D

If all the mess concerning our upcoming house clears up, I won't need the income and I can get a job back here. that will let my wife go back to work and get some use out of her degree. My wife has been jonsing to get a job but would rather do the Mommy job while I'm away for weeks at a time. I agree.

Went to the Colorado DMV to get my drivers license.  The wait wasn't long and the process was relatively painless.  They took my pic, took my MD license, punched holes in it, then gave it back to me along with a temporary paper document to hold until I receive my permanent license in the mail.  Kinda odd since MD DMV issues your laminated wallet-size DL on the spot.

Also unlike Maryland where everything's handled under one roof, in order to register my car in CO I had to go to another office a couple miles down the road.  And before that I had to scrounge around for someone to sign off on a VIN verification form.  After going to three different used car lots along the way, I found one whose owner had the time and didn't charge me anything for it (the usual fee's $20).

Cut a whole bunch of bracnhes/flowers/stuff at my dad's farm.  He raises cut flowers for florsists in West MI.  Looks like tomorrow I'll be taking a 3 hour (one way) ride in a caravan of vehicles to deliver some flowers from the farm to Glen Arbor, MI.  Some HUGE wedding.  Big renough the florist had to sign a non-disclosure before they even bid the job.

I mean on our end the flower bill will top 8K.  The florist will minimally double that on cost- then add in desiugn and setup.

I'm guessing the wedding is at "The Homestead" resort: http://www.thehomesteadresort.com/. (http://www.thehomesteadresort.com/.)  They have a resort on top of the ski hill overlooking Lake Michigan.   The florist  rented an entire school and sebveral reefer semi's for flower storage and preparation.  Be aware our portion is but a small amount of the florist work.

I don't know who is getting married, but I'm betting it's going to be spectacular.  There's famous people up there, and just plain rich people.  It will be iunteresting to see if we can figure out who it is.  No matter who, it's good for the local economies!

Friend called that his AC was out. It was 86° inside and 79° outside.

Pulled off the cover and pushed the contactor on the compressor and it started up so that was good. Next was the thermostat. Found nothing wrong there so it was down to the basement. After checking for power on the blower and transformer (24v) and they were good. I pulled the covers off and found a small internal circuit breaker. Problem solved. Don't know what caused it to trip but it's running.

Cut a whole bunch of bracnhes/flowers/stuff at my dad's farm.  He raises cut flowers for florsists in West MI.  Looks like tomorrow I'll be taking a 3 hour (one way) ride in a caravan of vehicles to deliver some flowers from the farm to Glen Arbor, MI.  Some HUGE wedding.  Big renough the florist had to sign a non-disclosure before they even bid the job.

I mean on our end the flower bill will top 8K.  The florist will minimally double that on cost- then add in desiugn and setup.

I'm guessing the wedding is at "The Homestead" resort: [url]http://www.thehomesteadresort.com/.[/url] ([url]http://www.thehomesteadresort.com/.[/url])  They have a resort on top of the ski hill overlooking Lake Michigan.   The florist  rented an entire school and sebveral reefer semi's for flower storage and preparation.  Be aware our portion is but a small amount of the florist work.

I don't know who is getting married, but I'm betting it's going to be spectacular.  There's famous people up there, and just plain rich people.  It will be iunteresting to see if we can figure out who it is.  No matter who, it's good for the local economies!


Delivered the flowers today, just got home.  Still don't know who it was for, but the total florist bill, flowers, labor, and all decorations, will top $250,000- several events surrounding the wedding that will be Weds-Thurs-Fri-Sat.  Crazy, but GREAT for our local economy.  Turns out they had rented the entire Leelanau School, a high-end boarding school.  The place is sweet- it reminded me of Hogwarts in many ways (they had "houses").

thanks. yeah, we just got done a bit ago and found out even more info that was not pointed out or not informed of.  we went from having to need only $2300 for closing costs (thought it was low but hey, he's the expert), to over $12k. yeah, needless to say, we are pissed. and yes, our new lender actually went over the old paperwork and pointed out what we should have been told. nothing coming to the table with not enough cash....  grrrrrrrrr

Was practicing last night and the amp had picked up a hum since the last practice session. I guess it forgot the words. During the practice I suddenly lost Clean Channel 1. Flipped over the Clean 2 and finished the session. Afterwards, went through all the possible settings (pedals, affects loop, EQ, etc.) and CC1 wasn't completely gone but the volume had to be turned up to 10 to get the same output that 3 had been giving.

Today I rolled the pre-amps tubes without resolving the problem. Went to the power amp tubes and one of the month-old TAD E34B-STDs was tango uniform. Swapped in the OEM Marshalls (relabeled JJs) and CC1 came back while the hum went away. Word is that the hum is a clue that a power tube is on the outs; drifting from it's original bias along the way.

More TADs ordered since they give a warmer sound.

Flew back to Colorado with an angry drugged cat.  It actually went pretty well other than her swiping the poor Bawlmer TSA guy with her claws while we were pulling her out of her carrier so they could scan it.  A 1/2 tab of Valium snuck into a treat kept her pretty well zonked for most of the flight, then she fussed a bit but thankfully  kept her bowels & bladder in check the whole flight.  Good kitty.  Got her here inside the house and let her go exploring.  There's enough furniture & clothing here that smell familiar that she's not freaked out at all.  Now she's curled up beside me on the couch.   Mebbe she'll catch a mouse tonight...

Roll back several months... Secretary at a client location (small office) often brings her (10/11yr old) daughter to work. I tend computer / electronics support for clients. I do not recall the task that was being tended on the secretary's system but there was a point where the desktop was apart. Her daughter expressed an interest in "what makes a computer work". Mom is well supportive of her inquisitive daughter. Three or four of us ended up sitting on the floor, cover off of the computer with me describing "parts". Five, maybe ten minutes later the computer was buttoned up and I completed the appointment.

A few months later I receive an e-mail from the secretary / mom to the effect that her daughter was asked a question of what person stands out in your mind. The answer came back - the computer guy at mom's work. Mom said that it was my taking time to sit and "be a patient teacher" made an impact with her child. It was a nice e-mail to receive.

Today, Mom and daughter had an appointment at my office to "look at" their laptop that had a "goofy" screen (the easy, 20 second, answer - the LCD panel is broken and needs replacement - but today is a teaching event). I just wrapped up a two hour appointment showing the daughter my methods for laptop dis-assembly / diagnosis / reassembly with her tending 70% of the dis-assembly and 95% of the re-assembly.

I enjoyed passing on skills to another generation. Mom was pleased at my teaching skills & patience. Daughter was quite energetic and happy that she was able to "turn the screwdriver", disconnect, reconnect cables - and what to watch for so that it is done properly.

A-GOOD-DAY.

That's pretty cool. I once brought my daughter (about the same age) in and gave her a page of instructions. She upgraded about a third of the systems in the office :) (about 30 systems I guess). My older daughter was pretty interested in computers when she was a bit younger than that. At 8 she was screwing around with IBM Logo. She's a Computer Security Professional now. Both were very interested in what I was doing, at home and at work so I was happy to help them with their curiosity.

Worked on a friends Grand Marquis today. His head lights would just turn off while driving. A little time later they would come back on and then turn off again. Looked at the switch and found nothing wrong. After some investigation found the Headlight control module was bad. $250.00 part. After searching the net I found this was a common problem with that car.  Called my friend and he looked through some papers and found a letter from Ford  acknowledging a problem with the HCM and will cover it under warranty. Told him to call Ford tomorrow and get it scheduled to take it in.

Next was to check the brakes. Fronts looked good and had about 6 to 8 thousand left on them. When I looked at the rears the left side had a blown seal on the caliper and looks like it had been leaking for a while.  He said to do all 4 wheels. Will wait to see when Ford can get the car in before I start the brakes.

Practiced two new shapes on the guitar (plus the other three). Practiced in the key of A and the key of D. Still a little set in A so D needed some thought to get the shapes right.

Meaning in A, I know where every shape starts so I can jump between shapes almost without having to think about it (new shapes too).

But in D, I have to start with shape 1 and move up and down from there.

More practice in different keys needed.

My instructor gave me 10 or so Xerox copies from an old magazine with the shapes and 10 exercises (riffs) to go with them. I was focused on shape one (pentatonic) and feeling limited when I got those. Now I can play the entire fretboard with the five shapes. I can copy them for you or see which magazine they came from Guitar World).

And I have a Taylor I'm happy with :)

PLEASE! A camscanner (or other means of PDF) would be great!

I was actually looking at a Taylor when I bought my new Martin DCPA4. Tuns out, for the same price, I could get the Martin in solid woods and made in Murika (for what it's worth) for the same price as the similar laminate Taylor made in Mexico.

Yea, I'm dm_gsxr for real :)

I went through several acoustics at the local store and really didn't find any that appealed. I finally picked out a Martin and the Taylor as closest to the louder percussive sound I was looking for. The store guy suggested he play a few for me and that made a huge difference in what I was hearing as an audience member. The Taylor had the bigger sound I was looking for.


I'll bring in the copies I have tomorrow as work as a scanner and get them to you.

Installed a new trans cooler on the truck. After 18 years I guess it decided to spring a leak.

I guess the foot and a half spot under the front of the truck was a good indicator.

Didn't loose a lot of fluid but it did make a good mess.

I fixed my computer lamp.
It's an LED lamp with an on button and an off button.  The on button didn't work on the first press a couple times and then it stopped working.
Opened it up and found the switch (both on and off) are a small enclosed unit soldered to the (small) circuit board.  I confirmed the problem was with the switch by putting a screw driver across the solder points on the back.
Opened up the switch with an exacto knife.  There is a small metal, concave disk that is both the spring and the contact. No apparent reason why it wasn't working.  I tested the contacts inside the switch with a small screw driver - and the lamp came on.
Put the disk back in, and pressed it with the screw driver, and the lamp came on.
I didn't want to glue the switch back together and risk glue getting somewhere it shouldn't, so I used a paper punch to put a hole in scotch tape.  I put the hole over the switch-button and wrapped the tape around the circuit board - it only had to hold it together as I reassembled the lamp.

Nothing so profound... spent the last couple evenings working on Yard Yahtzee sets for labor day camping trip... slightly expanded with extra dice for Drink- Farkle games. Between cutting cubes, sanding and wood burned pips, it seemed prudent to make burning jigs for the lot. Worth the extra time.

My wife needs to forget Instagrams URL... On the plus side, I have something to huck at my buddies smart-alec kid when he gets lippy on labor day.

I laid some porcelain tile in one of my houses, re-doing the kitchen floor.

Damn, I'm getting old. That whole squatting, applying mortar, cutting tile, up-down-up-down thing sucks.

Good thing is it's 12x24 tile, so relatively fast to apply in the larger areas. The suckitude will begin when I have to begin cutting to fit around the existing cabinets, etc.

My legs and butt and back hurt.   :-(

Thursday night, removed furniture from living room. Cut and removed carpet from the living room. Painted kilz on the wood where cat piss leaked through.

Friday, watched carpet folks remove old carpet, clean, and install new carpet. Only the dining room remains. Put up barrier to keep cat out.

Saturday, put some furniture back, cleaned and painted kilz on the two pieces that soaked up cat piss. Replaced three of the five outlets in the room. Grilled up four steaks, corn on the cob, Jeanne cooked asparagus and created an excellent sauce for the corn. Hung out with a friend of Jeanne's. Played guitar.

With the exception of riding to and from work everything I did was non moto. For eleven damn hours. Much of it was fun, though.

I smoked a bunch of trout fillets, made some focaccia with spent grains from a batch of brown ale (and also some of said ale), cooked about a million orders of Beer Battered Bacon (it's Sunday) and after work I read some cook resumes (we're hiring) and had some of our black lager and a smoked trout sandwich (not on the menu yet, I don't like the texture of the relish).

Had to cut a hole in the ceiling by the fan to fix some plumbing.  The place is on a slab.  A pipe burst last winter- this was the first year they tried to winterize it- and there was a hanging "stub" which froze.  I finally got up to fix it, then put a first patch coat on:

Tomorrow we have the breakfast of kings (venison steak and eggs), shoot for a bit (.22's and some 9mm fun), visit the river for some swimming, then head home.  At the moment I'm enjoying an old-fashoined while the boy falls asleep.  Life is good in the Kingdom of Clay.

Yep, a bit of space. Now that I don't have an SO. You must have missed the news. She left 3 years ago around the 15th. Just me and the cat. :)

I was checking out what it would cost to bring things to snuff. Drum heads are pretty inexpensive but the cymbals are up there. A good set at almost $1,000. I'll check with the drummers and see what would be decent without breaking the bank. :)

Really good day yesterday.  Wife's family came up for a visit.  That would be 11 of them in total...  Ma, Pa, 8 young'ns and the eldest's new wife.  Lots of motorcycle rides for the little ones, lots of shooting for pretty much everyone, and another riding lesson for the Marine on the XT.  Best moment was when the 11 or 12 y/o girl (daredevil on the bike and absolute gifted passenger) decided that even with all her brothers and her father being complete gun nuts, she allowed me to teach her how to shoot a handgun.  :)  They were up for about 6 hours and the damage to the house was limited to a lot of sticky stuff on the floor.  Good times.

Changed oil in my pickup and the wife's car. Then "supervised" as the youngest checked the fluids and tires on her car.


Is that a 8 or 10 quart oil pan on that Ram?

Got my DSL40C amp back from it's checkup. Diagnosis: One stone cold dead power tube and one pre-amp tube that was on the outs. A good cleaning of all the pots, ports, and sockets was SOP for the bench fee. All my backup tubes were tested (again from when they were sold). The OEM Marshall (rebranded JJ) power tubes were found wanting (no surprise) so they go back into emergency stores. The after market tubes (except for the mate of the SCD one) are also good and will be put back into home inventory for primary backups.

Sounds great like when I last put in new tubes and biased everything.

Took it into the shop since it seemed that the SCD tube had a very short life. Turns out it was just one of those things and not the amp causing it.

The benefit of the experience is that my used AMP is now more than an "I think it's like-new" and I found a local guy whose main job is fixing amps and sound boards as opposed to the luthier I went to once who did amps on the side... grudgingly.

Tubes are certainly still being manufactured. Tube amps are desired by a lot of musicians. I haven't heard of any cost increase but I also don't replace tubes all that often :)

infinitely given there are 50 year old amps still working. if kept up instead of letting multiple troubles pile up, it should be minor steps. let it get fubar'd and sell for a pittance to someone willing to bring it back from the brink.

New Old Stock tubes from the 50s are still highly desirable but their prices go up as their supply goes down. New Mfgr tubes are serviceable but sometimes don't last as long as NOS. It's a result of cost cutting measures like not drawing as much of a vacuum inside the tube. Doing just enough instead of more than minimal. Audiophiles will pay the higher prices for their more demanding application. Musicians don't have to so only those chasing the perfect tone tend to bother.

I'm replacing old receptacles as well. Most are the three prong grounded ones but one wasn't and replacing it has killed the circuit from the next room to the ceiling fan and roof fan. Still puzzling that one out.

I used to do residential electric. Check to see if the outlet was a feeder to the rest of the circuit. Like Xmas tree bulbs in series, fail one and all the rest down the chain fail. The quick-and-dirty way to do it is to use the stab holes in the outlet so that the internal (body) of the outlet acts as the jumper. What I do in retrofitting is to get some 12ga solid copper wire and make a set of pig tails for black/white/bare(or green) (hot/neutral/ground). Get a sturdy set of plyers and make a strong physical connection by twisting together the in/out and your 6" bit of new (color-matched) wire. Cap the twist with a properly-sized wire nut and then connect the outlet to the pig tails. If the plug fails, the circuit will will continue to work.

Only when moving while accelerating.  CV joints are fine. Brakes and wheel bearings are fine as well.  The clicking gets faster and slower with road speed, not engine.  With my luck it's probably something that will be catastrophic in the tranny.  All the splines looked OK as well.

Grab a camera, put it into video mode (to capture audio), duct tape it where you think the sound is coming from, drive, let it record the noise. Move camera to a different part of the car (more duct tape), drive, record. Compare noise levels / move it to where the noise is loudest???

Good luck!

I thought of you/Jeanne and LT today while up for a SHORT (though generally spirited ride) in the Snowy Range (WY 130 west of Laramie). Up higher there is new-this-season chipseal. It's in quite nice condition - great grip with no center-of-lane loose chips.

I believe the speed limit up there is 55mph as some of the corners are yellow marked at 45MPH. The 20MPH set of switchbacks was just right at 40. If you've never been, it's a scenic area with some hiking trails worth looking into. Roadside ponds. I need to return and spend a full day...

If you plan to visit, then this tidbit is worth reading about:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Airlines_Flight_409

VFR flight from Denver to Salt Lake, behind schedule, smacked into the eastern face of the mountain back in 1955 (killing all 66 souls on board).

If I recall, the GPS in the car today recorded an elevation of 10,700 feet with the peaks extending up another thousand or two from the roadway.  The airplane was to fly at 10,000 ft, going north/around the mountain range.

Actually I'm not sure what the discoloration was- maybe fine sawdust left from cutting in the ridge vent?  It was about 80 in the evening (sun is in the west in the picture).  No frost here yet.   :bigok:

I wouldn't be surprised if they put in a dead-man's switch in future versions, so that it forces you to pay attention for the full 2 hours.

Fucking PC-California bullshit.

It's not just California, it's everywhere. 2 hours isn't bad, but I think you could adequately learn how to sexually harass in an hour or less.

I used to walk into these trainings before CBT and ask if this is where I learned how to do it or how not to get caught. It is so far removed from the original intention that it is ludicrous.

Actually :)

In this case I've spent the past 6 months designing a patch and vulnerability process. Getting accurate information from management as to what they want, learning how to best use the security scanning software, adding features to the inventory program to better manage and track vulnerabilities, working with management to train them in how the process will proceed to completion, setting up four classes to teach operations and engineering how to follow the process, creating instructions for the teams on how to use the security software and what issues will occur due to the requirements.

Then starting it off by creating 150 tickets with about 100 or so to go.

Now I've started answering questions by the teams, updating the docs to reflect the good questions.

1. Infosec scans the network.
2. Sysadmins review the scans and creates tickets to the appropriate groups.
A. Critical vulnerabilities have a 60 day resolution requirement
B. High vulnerabilities have a 90 day resolution requirement
3. Groups use the security software to review the scans.
A. If not applicable, enter that into the scan results. Close ticket.
B. If applicable but resolvable by the group (not an application correction), follow group process to correct.
C. If applicable but is an application issue, open a Change Request with Engineering.
D. If applicable but for reasons you won't correct it, an exception is created and signed off by the company president.
4. Engineering reviews the Change Request.
A. If no code change, approves and closes Change Request.
B. If code change, lab admin installs patch and product is tested.
I. If no problem, approves and closes Change Request.
II. If problem, determine complexity.
a. If easy, correct, provide upgrade package and close Change Request.
b. If complex, follow process to work issue which might include delays and an Exception requirement.
C. If work will not be done, create an exception which has to be signed off.
5. If update will be done, follow upgrade process and close ticket.

Whew.

I'm at the opening tickets and answering questions stage. Even though I passed instructions on to managers weeks ago, folks still don't have accounts in the security software and that's a necessary step so they can evaluate the vulnerability.

Anyway, in other news, a position opened up in the Monitoring team but it was a mid level spot. I spoke to their manager (Director actually) and she'd really like me to be the manager of the group but that spot isn't open yet (January). So I was going to wait but the spot was converted to a senior position so I'm going to apply.

I have to get a sign off from my new butt head manager. Humorously he responded within a minute of my asking. I think he wants me gone :)

I caught the Director on the way out Friday and she immediately said, "What are you waiting for, go get the forms. Now! Go! Go! Go!"

Nice to know I'm wanted. :D

Cleaned out the jeep from Saturday's jeep club sponsored trail fall cleanup run.

Barbour Fork trail (just south of Idaho Springs CO) is 9.3 miles long. We had four vehicles, five adults and six kids. Started @ 10am and finished at 2pm. The amount of trash shown here was what I carried out. While I carried the big stuff, each vehicle had bags of small stuff (shells, clays, cans, glass bottles, diapers [you think clean diapers would be left behind], pants, paper. Bonus - no needles or backpack meth labs today!)

Introduced new shooters to the fold.  Former landlord brought his wife to the house.  He'd fired his 357 revolver when he took the class and nothing else.  She fired an unknown semi as an intern at some police force years ago.  We wanted to get them some broad experience and dispel the myth that small women can't shoot big(ish) guns.  So we brought out all the toys, went through each one in 4 steps... 

1.  Discussion of what it is and how it works
2.  Touch it, feel it, hold it properly
3.  Learn the parts, cycle the action, dry fire if appropriate
4.  Load and fire

Kim kept all mags and ammo away from the guns.  When we were ready, we "checked out" the ammo or magazines for the ONE gun we were working with while Kim babysat all the rest (with her loaded Ruger on her hip.  What?!?  You don't hand a loaded weapon to strangers without some sort of insurance.)  I was within arms reach of whoever had the weapon at all times ready to assist and correct, which happened a couple times.  Typical newb stuff like dropping the barrel of the shotgun towards her feet cuz it was so heavy.  Not the end of the world but engage the safety and get your finger off the trigger first please. 

We did everything from AR platform 22 that they brought all the way up to high brass slugs through my Benelli Super Nova.  List includes Ruger P89DC 9mm, Ruger SR9C 9mm, Springfield XD Subcompact 9mm, 357 revolver, S&W Governor 45, 20 ga shotgun w/ birdshot then 00 buck, 12 ga Mossberg 930 SPX w/ 00 buck, 12 ga Mossberg 500 pistol grip w/ low brass bird load, Benelli Super Nova w/ high brass slugs (ow), AR15, and AK47. 

She was a trooper and tried everything.  She took the 12 ga in stride (contrary to what the saleswoman at the gun store tried to tell him would happen) and only balked at the slugs through the Benelli.  But then, that is quite a jolt to the shoulder and she's about 5' even and maybe 100 - 110 lbs.  He even stopped after 3 of those. 

All in all, a safe and productive day.  They got quite an education and introduction to the concept of firearms and are hopefully more equipped to make purchasing decisions moving forward.  Good times.

People are just big slobs. Smokers are bigger slobs. How many cigarette butts did you pick up?

They were there, but, surprisingly, not too common. I picked up perhaps 5 to 10 of'm. My guess is that smoking is "less" in society (my guess), there is a fire ban in the forest (it's dry), and perhaps smokers toss the butts into the fire and they burn up.

The big deal is the shooters leaving target trash and spent cases. One spot, perhaps from the night before, was 120 shotgun cases in a 5 foot radius circle. Really, you could not bend down and pick up the 120 items RIGHT THERE?!?! (curiously, we found no clays or other target trash - they either cleaned that or were simply shooting into the air).

At the "backup gun with unknown students handling"... Did you start with only one bullet in the gun for each student?
No. 

There were only 2 of them and only one handling one gun at a time.  Rounds weren't loaded / chambered till we were standing at the line facing the target already in stance.  At this point, I was standing behind and left at about an arm's length distance.  The couple times a weapon was handled in an unsafe manner, I had my hands on her before she could move.  A gentle reminder with both hands on both shoulders that it's not time to turn around yet.  Then my hand under her arms lifting the shotgun away from her feet.  After my requirements were reinforced, there weren't any issues other than a fairly regular finger on a shoulder to undo the "lean back" thing that often happens after a couple shots.

I also told them in no uncertain terms that Kim and I both had loaded guns in our holsters for that very reason.  From my perspective, I was simply handing a complete stranger a tool that could kill me.  And since the entire point of their visit was to take them to a place where they're less likely to be victims in the future, they totally got it.  I also made it clear that under certain circumstances, I would be putting hands on them and to not be surprised by that either.  The theme for the day was no surprises.  I felt about as secure as one can in the presence of a new shooter.

Jacked it up today and crawled underneath it and found a broken wire on one of the speed sensors.  Easy fix. Since I had it off the ground I rotated the tires, greased the U joints, and fixed a broken muffler clamp.

LOL - you're beginning to learn of the "fringe" that is out here (I put it as in the westward movement, some came to the mountains, saw them as too-much-work to cross over and said "meh, this is good enough and called the Front Range home").   I bet the lawn was cut short!!





Geek: 1

For one who provides support and training to small biz and residential markets, this visit type is one I well enjoy. The client is happy and I am happy to provide, what seems an unorthodox "fix".

Went to a new client. Call was "My son says I have a hard drive problem - it's just sitting at this AMD screen"  Mental: Yep...  `hope it's not serious.  Me: Do you have any backup? "no"  Mental: Yep...

Now onsite, I see the desktop computer sitting with an AMD boot screen. The hard drive was detected and listed on the screen - but that was it. It wasn't to the "no boot device available" prompt.

Turn the system off, remove the side cover, place my ear close to the hard drive and power up the system. The sound I hoped to hear was present (the platters of the drive not rotating). I could hear the drive "trying" to start but it wasn't able to complete the task.

I call the situation "stiction". Think of a record player. There's a record on the player and the needle is sitting on the record. The player is turned off. When it's turned on, the needle is "sticking" to the record hard enough that the motor to turn the record can't "break free" to turn the record. No music or enjoyment happens.  That's what was, I believed, happening with the drive.

The solution is a simple one - but one that goes against common rules of mechanical hard drive care - and record care. When it's moving / playing - don't give it any motion or sharp jolts - the "record will skip".

In this case, the solution is the opposite - give it a HARD jolt - but at the correct moment. The goal is to, when the drive is just powered up and is still trying to "break free" to spin the platters, make the "needle" (heads) bounce so that the platters can rotate.

System turned off, I pulled out my utility knife (closed) - a hard item with enough mass, turned the system on and gave the label of the drive one whap.  The desired "whirrr" was heard and the system booted into Windows as desired.

Client had a glorious smile that "they could pay bills" while I had a smirk the unusual fix produced a desired result. (I get such an opportunity about every three years - not too common for this issue).

Then the discussion to replace the drive and start producing backups was had while I adjusted power settings to keep the drive spinning 24x7 while client decided what to do next (repair this system or replace it in whole).

Turn the system off, remove the side cover, place my ear close to the hard drive and power up the system. The sound I hoped to hear was present (the platters of the drive not rotating). I could hear the drive "trying" to start but it wasn't able to complete the task.

I call the situation "stiction". Think of a record player. There's a record on the player and the needle is sitting on the record. The player is turned off. When it's turned on, the needle is "sticking" to the record hard enough that the motor to turn the record can't "break free" to turn the record. No music or enjoyment happens.  That's what was, I believed, happening with the drive.

The solution is a simple one - but one that goes against common rules of mechanical hard drive care - and record care. When it's moving / playing - don't give it any motion or sharp jolts - the "record will skip".

In this case, the solution is the opposite - give it a HARD jolt - but at the correct moment. The goal is to, when the drive is just powered up and is still trying to "break free" to spin the platters, make the "needle" (heads) bounce so that the platters can rotate.

System turned off, I pulled out my utility knife (closed) - a hard item with enough mass, turned the system on and gave the label of the drive one whap.  The desired "whirrr" was heard and the system booted into Windows as desired.

Client had a glorious smile that "they could pay bills" while I had a smirk the unusual fix produced a desired result. (I get such an opportunity about every three years - not too common for this issue).

Then the discussion to replace the drive and start producing backups was had while I adjusted power settings to keep the drive spinning 24x7 while client decided what to do next (repair this system or replace it in whole).

My situations like that are usually followed some time later by the same person calling about another failure of the same gear. No back ups. No new gear. Since I turned off power saving mode, they just left it running and it eventually assumed room temperature.

It was romantic that didn't mention motorcycles but when read by her, would invoke memories of a motorcycle ride. If read by someone else it could evoke different memories (skiing for instance). (I did say "motorcycle" so I'll take a minute but not 5 minutes.)

I replaced the left front fender on my son's car after he was hit by a deer.

Yes that's right, the deer hit him, not the other way around.

Thankfully the door wasn't involved, and the hood had only a slight dent in it.

Buy new fender, had body shop paint it, installed it myself. Looks much better now.

I'm jazzed!

I had my first paying gig since I laid down the bass in 1979.

I played rhythm and it was for just one song (Jealous Again by The Black Crows) but I was paid in gold.

The gold of my 1.5 year old grandson's laughs and dancing as I played for him and his mom. Sustained notes were accompanied with me touching the tip of his nose with a finger of my picking hand. That brought even more smiles and laughs. He also liked to reach out and touch the head of the guitar (while his mom held him up) so I exaggerated bobbing it to the beat.

Great fun!

actually,  YES!!! the VA still failed to come through as much as we needed, but the builder has decided to take the "hit" to get it sold to us (instead of an even BIGGER hit with a realtor). So, if all works out (still issues to work out), we intend to close the 26th. We are coming out really good all around (price, taxes, etc) so we have nothing to gripe about. The house looks PHENOMENAL!!!  still have the landscape to get done, but we have a year to get that completed or at least show it's getting done.

Yes, we are definitely stoked. I've still got a lot of planning to do on the garage for storage and organization. with 12-13' ceiling, storage area won't be a prob. and yes, I really want to install a lift for the vehicles.

Driving on the left was interesting. I clipped a bus (not even a scratch) and rubbed against a curb and at one point failed to look the right way and almost got hit. But all in all it's been interesting. Especially the one lane wide by US standards two lane roads :) Nothing like feeling your way by moving left until the shrubbery is scraping the car when going by a lorry :)

We've been at Jeanne's sister's place for a couple of days (Annalong on the western coast of Northern Ireland) and done a bit of hiking, yesterday in Silent Valley. Today we're heading to the north coast to see the Giant's Causeway and then Belfast. Friday flight to the Isle of Man.

Quick tip for you rattle can dippers.  Let your can of plasticdip sit in hot water a while before you spray it. You'll get a smoother application.

Looks good.

The raised center section of the hood (which is most of the hood), could look nice (and perhaps cut glare on those rare occasions - so there's a good need for coating the hood).

Started painting the trim outside on the house.  About half done. 

Tomorrows going to be another nice day.  Sunday looks iffy. 

Question is, do I finish painting tomorrow or go for a ride?

I'd love to do the whole truck.   :bigok:  Im not sure I like it as it is.  I need to do a bot more maybe.  Any thoughts?

Looks good.

The raised center section of the hood (which is most of the hood), could look nice (and perhaps cut glare on those rare occasions - so there's a good need for coating the hood).

That might be worth a shot.  If I don't like it the stuff peels right off.

Dell servers have a 5 year end of life. One of our groups is excessing 4 servers due to EOL business requirements. Generally the stuff we excess is ancient and not worth much more than the cost of the bits, maybe to be cannibalized when a similar system bails. These systems however are part of the core infrastructure so they're pretty on top of getting new gear when needed.

What this means is, because we're friends with the group, we got notified when they were replacing a server.

I picked up this server last Thursday but I've been too busy to muck with it until now. It's a Dell R710 with 2 8 core 2.67 GHz CPUs, 192 Gigs of RAM, four 7200 RPM 750 Gig drives in a RAID 5 configuration (so 2 TB of space) and two 15,000 RPM 146 Gig drives in a RAID 1 configuration.

I installed CentOS 7 over lunch without a problem. I'll be setting it up to replace my current server/firewall (it's old and I can't update Ubuntu any more as hardware isn't supported). Plus with the extra capabilities, I'll be setting up a bunch of Virtual Machines using KVM for various testing things plus setting up my next Red Hat Certification test environment (I just passed my RHCSA before going on vacation).

Good stuff :D

Ok, this took a couple days, but it counts...

Kids car (slightly) grenaded about a week ago. For want of *1* $0.45 nut, the passenger side control arm bolt worked out. For want of that 1 bolt, the end of the control arm pulled away from the car. For want of that end, the wheel moved out and pulled the CV axle out on that side. For want of that axle, FWD car wouldn't run. Culprit was *1* $0.45 trapped nut inside the lower K-frame. Non replaceable, as it's inside the frame. $500+ part, IF you can find one.

I spent more time researching what the issue should be than getting it fixed. Tore the front end apart. Removed the K-frame, trot off to my friend the uber-welder. $5 in a replacement 10.9 grade bolt and nut, access panel opened, nut quickly welded in and frame repaired. Reassembly on the car. It's now a functioning auto.

I remember when i was young my old man explaining to me the difference between a mechanic and a parts changer. Makes more sense now that I'm in his shoes. (Not a new revelation, but particularly telling this time). If I handed this to a shop, it would have been the value of the $#itbox commuter car. As it is, my daughter owes my welder a gift card from the BBQ joint she works at.

I'm very appreciative of the people foolish enough to consider themselves my friends. Not sure what I did to deserve them all...

Blacked-out the chrome bits on my truck with plastic-dip spray.  We shall see how it looks in the light tomorrow.  It was dark when I put it back together.
Isn't black suppose to be dark?  j/k
Gloss or matte?
I'm thinking of getting some for the chrome on my VStar, but I'd use the translucent smoke (color).  Chrome flames on the air cleaner would look cool, if done right...

Been doing a lot of unsuccessful research. Thought I'd ask here.

We moved in to our newly-built house in 1992. We have lived here since then. Originally as a family of 4 (1 husband, 1 wife, 2 daughters). Now it's just us two as the daughters have grown and have their own families. We occasionally host family gatherings and holiday dinners. Oh yeah, we've had 1 dog and 2 cats during that time with 2 cats the current pet population. We had more insulation blown into the attic about 5 years ago and, at that time had the underside of the roof painted with that heat reflective silver paint.  The central heat-and-air collector/condenser/blower is located in the attic so that might also be a contributing factor. We have 2 bathroom. The guest bath is a full bathroom (shower, tub, sink and john) with 1 attic fan. The master batch was similar but with 2 exhaust fans until about a year ago when we remodeled it to a single, large shower (but still 2, updated, higher cfm vents). My concern is that the 3 vents exhaust into the attic instead to the outside of the house. No service has ever been done to clear out the accumulated farts up in the attic. How often should that be done and what is the best tool to use?

Put a new 250GB SSD in my studio/home computer and did a fresh/clean install of Windows 10 Professional and all my applications. The transition was not completely painless as I also upgraded my recording software and it is no longer compatible with a very expensive but 10 year old (32-bit), suite of effect plug-ins I sometimes use. Sigh.

Congrats to RedFox on the new Jeep. I was going to test drive (and probably buy) a VW Golf R yesterday to take advantage of a $2000 Owner Loyalty rebate, but chickened out. Too much money for a car that will spend most of its life cruising on the crappy, beat up, always under construction PA Turnpike. It's a class of one: Sporty hatchback with AWD and manual transmission. I have until tomorrow to regret that decision and take advantage of the rebate.

Cleaned up the leaves in the yard and painted some trim around the garage.  Signed a contract for a new house heating & cooling system.   Been looking at quotes for the last 2 weeks.  Old one was working fine but well past its prime.  Some parts no longer available.  Better to replace it now than wait for it to fail middle of this winter or next.

Although it wasn't an entirely non-moto day.  Road the Connie long enough to warm it up.  Added some gas stabilizer, changed the oil, did the pumpkin too.

I needed new tires for the truck.  So, I checked around.  Discount tire had the best deal going on- well, Costco was $1 cheaper per tire, but Discount Tire is closer.  BFG All-Terrains.  So, I order 270/70/17's on Wednesday morning.

The guy gets them in and calls me back.  15 minutes later I'm there (3:30).  He walks out to check my truck and comes back and asks, "Do you have another set of rims you want these tires on?"

"No."  I say.

"Well you have 18" rims on your truck."  He says.

Suck.  Well, I figure we'll get the right ones ordered up and I can come in tomorrow (Thursday).  I KNEW I had 18's, but somehow I ordered wrong.  So, I tell him "Let's get it figured out and I can come back tomorrow and have the right tires here and put on". 

He asks me to hold on a second, and does some typing.

Long story short, he has a set of aftermarket rims with the same tires on them.  A guy had them on his truck for four days and didn't like them- and returned them.  At first he says "I'll sell you the rims for $300 and the tires at a discount, since they are used." 

I hemmed and hawed a second, since this puts me about $50 over the price I was going to spend on tires- and I'm a function-over-form guy.  The manager then says "Just sell the rims for $200- we need to get rid of them."

So, for about $50 less than I was going to spend, I walked out with new tires *and* rims for about $50 than I was going to spend- and the tires still have (and have) the nubbies on them! 

I'd rather be lucky than good any day of the week.

Got my new system up as the replacement router/firewall. It's not plugged into the UPS yet but it is functioning. I'll muck with it further when I get time.

The firewall was the most interesting part as it's new to Red Hat/CentOS 7 (firewalld and firewall-cmd).

With 3 interfaces on the system (well, 3 active ones; there are 10 interfaces in total :) ), one for Comcast, one for internal access, and one for wireless, I needed to better understand firewalld and firewall-cmd.

Interface: em1 - Zone: External + Masquerade
Interface: em2 - Zone: Internal
Interface: em3 - Zone: DMZ (wireless)

Default zone: Internal.

A problem occurred when the --permanent option for firewall-cmd doesn't actually save the zone information between network restarts (system reboot or interface up/down).

Solved by either adding the ZONE=[zone] to the em1 and em3 interface files or by setting it using the Network Manager (nmcli) to set the zones. Works across reboots now. :thumbsup:


Got all the files transferred over. Need to get the processes set up; copying web sites up, backing up the existing sites with dynamic info like databases locally.

Then turn the old system into a Windows XP box so I can use my Sony Handicam and get the last music video off the tape.


Raked leaves, removed the cover on the cat enclosure, got paint for the hallway (paint tomorrow), shopping, cleaned up the cat enclosure (leaves), and cleaned and replaced the cat litter in one of the boxes.

Updated my character management site. Verified weapon lists, created a tabbed interface for characters, changed the method from a drop down menu to just a selectable list of weapons. Click to add one to your character. Click it again to add a second one. Click 'Remove' under your weapons to remove one.

Need to create more tables for basic equipment; might be "interesting" :)


Tomorrow, paint the hall. Create a stand for the new server. Check out the processes to get them working.

There was snow & ice on the ground; lots of ATV's and people target shooting.  Didn't spend too much time there - it was later in the day.  We just came in on Route 7 at Bunce School Rd. and took a left on 217 south to 72.

A nice intro to Bunce, though, IMO, that's the busiest / junkiest (because of the amount of people) part of the trail. My pref is a north to south trek, like you did. When you get down to the meadow (where the gate is), this is one nice view across the meadow to the mountains in the distance (otherwise it's a pine-tree-canyon with no stellar views).

A short bit after the side exit to 72 that you tool, things calm down a bit. The trail is moderate all the way (depending upon snow). Glad you folks enjoyed a trek out! If you ever wish to go with someone else, PM me or check this group out: www.FrontRange4x4.com (http://www.FrontRange4x4.com) (it's designed to meet up and go with others should help be desired - it'd be right there - often it's simply having another vehicle that could attach a strap to give a tug).

Got the trailer (camper) ready for winter.  One of the tasks that needed doing was to replace the stupid low point drain valve.  It's plastic and died recently.  I can't believe what a pain that was.  Of course the screws rusted so I had to drill those out.  The plastic on the remainder of the valve was so brittle it just broke apart.  I couldn't get it off because there was one of those screw clamps on the other side of the frame.  The entire underbelly of the trailer is covered with that plastic barrier that's supposed to keep the critters and the weather out.  HA.  So I had to cut a hole in that and of course the copper propane hose was exactly where it was most in the way.  I was finally able to get the valve off but the old screws were still a problem.  I broke them off on the back side and got the grinder out to smooth out the front side.  Had to tap new holes for new screws.  If course I only had #10 metal screws so I had to get a pretty good size hole in the frame and I'm using a micky mouse drill bit set and an 18v cordless drill.  And I'm laying on my back w/ my head up in the air trying to see what I'm doing.  After longer than I care to admit, I was finally able to get the screw clamp back in place (blind using a tiny screwdriver) and mount the new valve.  A task that should have taken about 20 minutes kicked my butt for a couple hours.  Ugh.  But it's done!!

Painted the hallway. Still need to run a second coat over it but it's finally a single color vs various colors of stain and cat pee.

Checked out a neighboring game store in Loveland. They bought a house on main street and turned it into a game store. The front had a nice selection of games but the game rooms were spectacular. Lots of room and table space for games. I can't imagine how noisy it'd be with a full house though.

Added Melee Weapons and Vehicle selection to the game monitoring system. Still need to add viewing the info among a few other things.

Not today, but last night.
Caught Scott Bradlee's Post Modern Jukebox in concert at the State Theater in Ithaca. For those of you who don't know, Scott Bradlee become an internet sensation by arranging modern pop songs in the fashion of 30's and 40's jazz and big band standards (along with some other stylistic mash-ups), filming the resulting sessions in his apartment, and posting the results on YouTube.
Here's one of the highlights of the night - a torch version of Radiohead's "Creep"

http://youtu.be/m3lF2qEA2cw (http://youtu.be/m3lF2qEA2cw)

Overall, the show was a little more frenetic than I would have hoped. I really like the intimate feel of the videos - reminds me of jazz clubs I hung out in during my wayward youth. A damn good time nonetheless. The big-band version of Guns and Roses "Sweet Child O' Mine" was a showstopper.
Oh, and Haley Reinhart is absolutely as attractive in person as she appears in the video  :inlove:

well, took my Ram in for a minor pinion seal replacement and a lil over an hour later, truck will be down for over a week awaiting parts and repair time for rearend replacement. ALMOST walked out of there with a new truck, but didn't want to pay $100 more a month since we just bought a house and don't have any idea on what our utility costs will be. Salesman came back with new deal for only $50 more a month, but I still said no. yeah, it may only be $50 more, but we've paid a good chunk of the current loan off and would rather not start over. I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back with a better deal next Tuesday when I get back from WY. if so, I may have to seriously give it thought...

They're just cinder blocks. The one you see that's on a bit of an angle isn't supporting anything but that corner. The cross members are 16 on center and blocked with shims traveling the entire length of both "tracks" which are an actual 2x16.

Look under here.

Went and picked up my SiL from the auto repair place he had his car flat bedded to. Seems his front wheel was wobbling on the way to work so, after work, he headed to the shop. He never made it because the driver's side front wheel came off leaving his skidding along the road until he could get stopped.

A 4 lug nuts came off at the same time. He suspect someone had tried to steal his POS wheel from his POS work car.

Nearly level 11 in Fallout 4. Have built up 2 settlements and helped about 2 or 3 others (without spending the time to SIM CITY them). Found a bunch of locations I skirted on the way to various objectives. Helped the police station, the Greenhouse and cleared out the water treatment plant of Super Mutants and Milurks (in addition to the stuff closer to Sanctuary). All without power armor.

In fact, it wasn't until wrapping things up to quit for the day, I noticed I was running around in light weight metal armor and tighty whiteys. Seems when I switched from Vault 111 jump suits to something with a little better protection, it didn't support armor. Once I put on the armor, it unequipped my clothes. With the Vault 111 jumper back in one of the settlements, I simply soldered on until I needed to go back to catch 40 winks.

Shoveled 15 inches of wet snow. Twice.

Friends furnace went out so I went over to see if I could figure it out. (getting down to 9° tonight) After some testing found the draft motor relay on the mother board went bad. Jumped out the draft motor and the furnace started up. The down side is that the motor won't shut off. Told him to get the house warm and then shut the power off to the furnace. Turn it on when it gets cool. Monday I'll get a new board.

Made meat loaf for dinner. then watched the Blackhawks loose to the Canucks.

Put a ceiling fan in the garage, 12 foot ceilings aren't so great in the winter. Also installed a motion sensor light so the spousal unit will quit whining about it "being to dark in the garage when I get home".  Oh, and drug the Christmas decorations out of the storage room so "someone" can put them up next week.

Today is Black Friday Game day at the local game shop. We headed over and played Mysteria (one plays a ghost and the rest plat psychics. The psychics have to determine the killer, location, and what the weapon is from clues provided by the ghost) and Contextual (draw a card with words then put markers on the board to try to indicate what the word is for others to guess. So for Coca Cola, We selected Brand, Food, Liquid, Black, Cylinder, Red).

Also stopped by the guitar shop. Sadly no Gary Clark Casino so no purchase :)

Played guitar.

Went to take out the trailer receiver pin and it is either rusted or bent. Tried to pound it out but it didn't work. Will take it in to the trailer shop Monday. I'm sure they have come across this problem in the past. The alternative is to cut the ends of the pin off and start drilling.

Class reunion- we rented a little seasonal bar and they opened it up for us.  We are at the age where parents are dying, and one of our classmates there has stage 4 metastasized lung cancer- in her brain, bones, and organs.  This will be her last event.  That sucked.  F-ing cancer.

Despite all that, it really was a blast.  I'm a social guy, and it was so much fun to catch up and just hang out with a few brews.  I'm catching up with one classmate and we chatted- then his wife shows up a little later.  They met later in life- she was a girl I hung out with a bunch during and after high-school.  Small world!  I didn't recognize her at first but she pegged me right away. 

We had some great fun!

Bought tickets for Berks Jazz Fest.

Saved about $75 over TicketMaster cost by driving 90 minutes to box office.

Plus we got to pick the seats we wanted.

I've not tried this, but it'd be my first guess:

Post pic.

If orientation is good - you're done.

If orientation needs to be adjusted (90deg clockwise in this case), then edit the pic via the phone's interface and rotate it 90deg CW and save it.

Edit the post, delete orig pic, re-upload rotated pic. Cross fingers...

Rotated it, saved it, came out in the new orientation.....standing on its tail. Rotated it once more, saved it like it was supposed to be, and it worked. If you try to rotate it 360°, it wont let you save it. Weird.

On the way to mom's was cruising at 78 in a 70 (~flow of traffic). Since I was overtaking someone, I'd moved left.

I saw a red Ford Focus (?) approaching quickly but since there was only half a car length between the car on my right and me I figured I'd wait until I passed it to move over.

The ford was having none of it, moved right then left even though our cars were overlapping.

I stabbed at my brakes and my horn and moved right behind the other car in case he decided to brake check me.

Ford and his grey crossover buddy shot past at probably 90ish.

I move left, pass the bystander, move back right and light the afterburners. About half a mile past the Ford I take my foot off the accelerator, and coasted back down to where the cruise was set. When I looked, I was north of 120 and dropping.

As Mr Ford zipped past, I got a good look at the grey crossover in close pursuit. In the rear window was a very small set of red/blue lights about the same size as the normal extra brake light.

As I watch ahead, Mr Ford eventually moves right and then to the shoulder; eventually stopping with the crossover glued to him.

I never got a second glance of the unmarked cop car while passing them as they began their contact. This is a case where recklessness was more important than simple speed.

put Christmas lights up for the first time on our new house. didn't take long since our yard is dirt, so no lawn ornaments. organized the rubbermaid containers for leftover lights and whatnot. didn't realize I had THAT many extensions cords...  and yet...  need more short ones.
Found out that my Mom sent a gift for my wife and turns out, I bought the same item locally. now I get to go back and return it so I can get her something else.


Spent yesterday doing oil and fuel filter change on Big Bertha (my Ram 3500 CTD). learn something new every time I do it. gettin a bit faster too. can't wait to get the garage organized so I can pull BB fully into the garage and let it drain overnight. I hate leaving dirty oil in when it's still pissing (not dripping but not pouring either). kinda had a time crunch since I was using the Boss's bay. started work on my work bench for the one wall of the garage. didn't get much accomplished but at least it's something. need to find some scrap countertops for it.

Today I made six gallons of Knackwurst, Pilsener and Smoked Emmenthaler Soup (after I finished smoking the Emmenthaler) and a test batch of  Dry-Hopped Pale Ale Cioppino. Almost got it, but not quite. Needs more zoom. I'm thinking a splash of Pernod right at the end to brighten the fennel and show off the acidity of the tomatoes (fire-roasting takes off quite a bit of the tomatoes' edge). Gotta buy some Pernod.

Had a GREAT day.  The boy and I went to the farm to get the snowmobiles down- we (my two brothers and I) loaded them on to the trailer.  My brother Matt has three of the same model, I have three, my dad has two, my brother John has one.  One of them on my trailer is one of my dad's- it wasn't running well last year so I'm taking it home to take a peek at:

Then we did some bunny hunting. Myself, my brother Matt (on the left), brother John (between Matt and I), my sister's son Henry, and Matt's son Nick.  Nick shot his fist rabbit today.  It was cool hunting with the next generation:

After that we cut some wood with the buzz saw.  If you remember, my mom and I restored my dad's (my grandpa's first tractor) as a surprise- a John Deere model H.  When I was a kid we used an old Case model SC (my uncle has it now where it is slowly rusting away) to run the buzz saw- the H wasn't running then.
  Anyway, my dad resurrected the old buzz saw and today we hooked it up to the JD model H and did some wood cutting.  As much as I hated as a kid, I loved it today. 
The setup:

This video is how we did it hour after hour.  30 years ago, dad cut (as he's doing here), as the oldest I handed up the next logs and Matt (brother just younger than me) threw the wood in the trailer.  John was too little to help- now he's the one throwing wood in the trailer.

Reminds me of a time when 3 contractors were standing around; one ranting about a customer he'd just helped who was (always) infuriating. When I heard him wise crack that it was enough to make him grab an AK47 and climb a clock tower (we're in Texas), I walked over and casually said:

"That's not appropriate."

[waiting for pause]

"If you're going to climb a clock tower, then something in .308 or 30-06 would be a better choice."

I then walked back to my desk while they all stood there with their mouths open.

John, great idea.

 Not to be cenacle but the only thing I see being a problem is heat build up with the door sitting on top of it. You may want to cut a hole and put wire mesh over it.

I'm pretty sure all the snow on top of the door will keep it just fine. This is primarily for the winter. The door as a roof is just a bonus. It latches up.

talked to wife a bunch today before heading out and getting some stocking stuffers for her. then, went back to apt and made lunch. got back on xbox with wife and started playing Halo 5. now, eating 4 cheese Rice and waiting for My Honey to get off phone with her brother so we can kill more aliens.

more than likely,  will play as long as she can (since I have to stay up late to get used to night shift) and then pick a series off of Hulu or Netflix and watch it til the sun comes up.  or heck, play Forza 6 til my fingers bleed. OH YEAH!!!

Got the trailer set up for the snowmobile season (when ever we get snow). The big surprise was all the lights worked.  :wings: 

Then I worked on the furnace. Pulled the burners out to clean them, Inspected the heat exchanger for cracks, New thermocouple, new air filter, and water pad on the humidifier. Also drained the water heater.

We talked and watched movies until past our bedtime. Then he woke me up at 4:30 am for coffee and we did house work and such. When I left in the afternoon he was so happy not to be alone that first night.

Mind you, it looks easy, and should be easy, but plumbing and I do NOT get along. if there can be a possibility of a leak, there will be one. and sure enough, have one. I've been tightening up the fitting little by little. leak  is getting smaller, but I bet I'll have to rip it apart and do it over.

Things were going good up until when I removed the oil filter and it slipped out of my hand and fell on the ground.  Some choice words were said then I picked it up and put it in the oil pan then got out the oil dry.

Slept in.  Plowed my driveway and three neighbor's driveways.  We had 6-8" of light, fluffy lake effect stuff, and plows like a breeze.  After that I did some welding on a couple of my buddy's 340 Enticer exhausts- they have holes and broken bits, and are fairly unobtainable.  I then ran out of welding gas, so that ended that.

Also grilled/fried a magnificent bluegill lunch.  Photos soon.

Slept in.
Contacted the city about a missing light pole that been there since before 1992.
Was re-routed to the power company who maintains it and was told it rusted out and fell over. They removed it and plan to replace it. Sounds like they did neither maintain it nor replace it (yet).
Baby sat a grand son for a couple of hours.
Shopped for groceries.
Grabbed a late lunch.

I'm totally ok with the dually sitting outside, but my wife being the way she is... "we got a Dually bay for your dually.  NOT storage." so she has been making it her mission to clear stuff out and organize the hell out of the garage (read: I build more stuff.  not that I mind since I've always wanted an organized garage). so there are no complaints from me. Hell, she's been pricing bike lifts so I can get off the floor to work on the bikes. Man, she rocks!!

so now, we are planning more storage near the ceiling. looks like I'll have a new project on my next week off to include putting SSB lines on the Hulk. Woot!

Unfortunately, the next weekend was taken up with repair diagnosis... Think this may be causing a mean vibration... warrant transfer case replacement? (1998 Expedition, 202000 miles). Further diagnosis pending to verify this is the source of vibration. Dammit. I like my repairs cut and dried. Glitter bomb, without big pieces.

LT, Transfer cases aren't that difficult to work on. I had a problem with my 97 Explorer where a gear was slipping and making an ungodly noise. When I priced a remanufactured unit it was in the range of $1300.00. Screw that so I fixed it myself. Turns out that this transfer case has a history of this problem. Found a place in Michigan that had a kit for fixing it for $400.00. It took longer for me to remove and install the case than it was to fix it.

As much as I'd really like the opportunity to dig into it, logistics is an overriding factor in this one. My service bay is a loaner (as my wifes truck won't fit in my garage, let alone with the Mini and 2 bikes in it). If that turns out to be the culprit, I expect to swap in a lower mileage unit instead of performing surgery (since we are in the middle of truck season as well... Mini doesn't like snow and ice much more than the bikes!)

So... took the Acura (the Red Queen) to Buttonwillow Raceway along with the race car for a 'Test and Tune' day last Friday. It was a hoot to drive the track in my own car as well as take a spin in the race car. Then M.Brane took the Queen out....

Needless to say, the front brake pads were DONE. Replaced those yesterday. The tires are also pretty much done. Michelin says they are guaranteed to 45K. Eh, not so much. We put the rears on the front as the fronts are pretty much done (no cord yet tho). The slots on the rotors are almost gone...

There goes another thousand for tires.

bought a Husky toolbox from HD, some tools, and then drove to work to dropped off everything. WOOT!  got a smoking deal. Evidently, HD has a ProX program that if you bought certain items today, ya got 20% off. WOOT! well, turns out that the tool chest was not on the list that all the others were. So, the sales lady that was helping me out, took 20% off anyway.  Smoookin!!
Not a real fan of Husky tool boxes, but I couldn't pass up the deal. Plus, it's for work, so I'd rather have a cheap set to get banged up instead of the setup I have at home.

Now, watching "Sense 8" on Netflix

Picked up a "shop discount" Epiphone SG G-310.  Clearly a shop beater (and the price reflected it). Probably used for lessons and when someone wanted to test an amp.  Finish nicks and strap wear. A cock-eyed tuner. Loose neck, tuners, switch, and output jack. A fretboard so grimy that it looked like the joint to the fret/board were fillets. Some fret wear.

Got it home, tightened up everything, removed the strings, gave it a good cleaning and new strings. Plays and sounds good and will be something to bring out when the grand kids are around or when wanting to go somewhere I'd not want to risk my nicer guitar with.

Top row: Before
Nick in finish to the right edge half way between the nobs.
Dirty fret board with the frets so crusty they are hazy.
The cleaning cloth AFTER attacking the board with lemon oil and a soft-bristle tooth brush and a very light hand on a tooth pick.

Bottom row: After
See the bent tuner?
Fretboard and body much improved.

The Les Paul is a bucket of cream. This one's an AC/DC screamer.

I really really like my PRS though. By now I would have switched back to the Les Paul but even with the intonation still not corrected and the wrong strings on it (comes with 9's and I want 11's but the nut is plastic or something and it needs to be filed), I really like picking it up and playing it.

Still have the Martin acoustic but I dropped the LP Trad Pro II off for some mods.

- New pickups (Wolftone Dr. Vintage: split, zebra bobbins, no covers)
- 50s wiring
- Bone nut
- PiO caps
- MAYBE new pots if this happens to be one that Gibson used low bid parts on

Picked up the SG for nearly nothing (about what I paid for the POS Lyon acoustic kit years ago). Man is that neck wide at the upper frets. I'm used to the 60s neck on the Lester and the tapered "performer" neck on the Martin.

Coincidentally, I too went car shopping (yesterday).  I got caught up in an 8-care pileup on my way to work on Thursday.  F-in' black ice! :angry: I was convinced that State Farm would total out my 2004 Civic with 144k on the odo.  Since I had yesterday off, I decided to cruise the string of stealerships nearby.  I test drove the new Civics (which feels exactly like my Civic but with leather interior and heated seats), a BMW X1, a Ford Focus and a Volvo V60, but I really fell in love with this:

Mini Clubman S.  And yes, the car seats will fit in the back. :banana:

Lucky for me, as I was leaving the last dealership, I got a text from the body shop - State Farm is fixing my car.  Now I just have to put up with driving Pikachu here for the next 10 days.

Must not have been damaged bad if they are going to fix it. I called SF on it once when they were going to put $2400 into a truck that would be worth $2500 when repaired, (Ranger with 238,000 miles). They said, "Huh. Yeah why are we? Just come get a check."

I had that happen once. Had the body shop tell me after the fact that, if they'd have known, they'd have bashed the windshield to push over the top for a total. It was a 70's 1600cc Toyota Corolla.

Actually, it's bumping right up to value.  NADA says I would need ~$5k to replace it, and that shop estimates $4995. :clap:

Honestly, I'd rather keep the car than have to buy something new.  Besides, I've promised the Civic to Sprout when he turns 16. :bigok:

Generally, a vehicle is totaled at 75% of the value. If you like it, consider buying it from the insurance company and just driving it with a salvage title. Just check your states requirements for recertification and insuring after.

Sold a Bushnell spotting scope via Amazon.

After eBay shafted me on shipping (their tool wanting to charge me 3x what their tool charged the buyer), I thought I've give Amazon a try.

NO hidden fees. Straight forward. It was a low-demand item so just set there for a while until someone decided they wanted a better price than offered by anyone else's listings.

This was a reminder of what had been set up 10-15 years ago and what had changed since then.  I set up a living trust for my kids about 2 years ago.  The Lord willing, it will hopefully be a long time before they have to deal with our trust.  IMO, it is one of the best things you can do for your kids.

I've been putting off fixing a break in the drip system line for a month due to not watering at this time of year. Got off my can and found spot, pulled landscape rock back, cut into plastic barrier and fixed plastic feed line. Covered everything back up and good as new!!!!!

Manually turned on all five sections of watering system and checked for leaks and adjusted sprinkler heads.

Cleaned pool and spa.

Cleaned and rearranged garage for more room to include motorcycle/utility trailer.

I was a busy little bee today.

Everyone I know with a sprinkler system is always digging it up and fixing it.

On a different note, I moved the sofa, love seat, recliner, and 4 end tables into the garage to await the donation people coming to pick them up. Dang those first two were heavy because they both have hidden recliners in them, too.

New sofa, pair of recliners, end table and lamp coming within a little bit today.

He left for work before I was done. I just got off the phone with him and found he seems to like it and, other than actually being able to log into the NAS to shut it down (without calling me to help him through the notes I left him), is able to use this new setup easier than he did with a much less complicated setup that he had before (including multiple remotes).

Honestly, it's too frequent to take pics... a couple of weeks ago when the Mrs. and I went snowshoeing up outside of Nederland, as we were parking, some young ladies were searching for someone with a tow strap due to a buried, street-tired Nissan Titan. And another Range Rover (street tires as well) around the next bend. There was a mobile jeep there to assist with tugs, but he didn't have anything but bungie cords. It still floors me how many people will venture offroad without the basics... shovel. strap. clevis. chain. jack. It's not rocket surgery.
On the plus side though, a umber of perky, bouncy little college girls were hugging on me in appreciation after we got them out. Helped my frame of mind at that point. (/dirty old man)

Helped our elderly neighbor get his dually pickup (lacking winter tires or chains, natch) unstuck from the snow not once, not twice, but three times.  :crazy:


Good luck with that neighbor - uch...


For me, yesterday afternoon / evening:

A request for help came to the jeep group and I was one to say yes - recover / pull out a stuck 4Runner up on Switzerland trail. Overall, it was a non-event and ended up being a nice afternoon on the trails.

Come on out - let's go wheel'n!

LOL - and it's an old railroad bed too - high speed runs for a snowmobile. I always enjoyed, when they were smooth, the UP trails that were old RR beds, in the long and wide, consistent radius turns with my 540 twin at WOT and big smile.

I'm tempted.   :bigok: I have done that since I was a kid. Weather advisories, blizzards....a couple of friends and I would go out in Jeeps and 4X4's with recovery stuff and pull people out all night. Lots of 'interesting' stories.

“I usually wake up at 6:30am, and start with some Kundalini mediation and a 23-minute breath set—along with a copper cup of silver needle and calendula tea—before my son Rohan wakes.”

“At 8am, I had a warm, morning chi drink on my way to the school drop off, drunk in the car! It contains more than 25 grams of plant protein, thanks to vanilla mushroom protein and stone ground almond butter, and also has the super endocrine, brain, immunity, and libido- boosting powers of Brain Dust, cordyceps, reishi, maca, and Shilajit resin. I throw ho shou wu and pearl in as part of my beauty regime. I chase it with three quinton shots for mineralization and two lipospheric vitamin B-complex packets for energy.”

“At 9:30am, I drink 16 ounces of unsweetened, strong green juice, which is my alkalizer, hydrator, energizer, source of protein and calcium, and overall mood balancer. It’s also my easy, ‘lazy,’ and delicious skin regime. I also take three tablespoons of bee pollen. I love Moon Juice’s soft and chewy bee pollen—it’s a creamy, candy-like treat that gives me my daily B-vitamin blast, and also helps feed my skin and aids hormone production. I’ll also grab a handful of activated cashews. I try to get these in every day for their brain chemistry magic. I chase this with a shot of pressed turmeric root in freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.”

“For lunch, I had zucchini ribbons with basil, pine nuts, sun-cured olives, and lemon, with green tea on the side. This is such an easy, elegant, and light meal. I made this while on a phone meeting before heading out for the rest of the work day. I often alternate this with my other lunch staple: a nori roll with umeboshi paste, avocado, cultured sea vegetables, and pea sprouts. This is my version of a taco, and it’s insanely delicious. These ingredients are all pantry staples, so I eat some version of this everyday. It’s probiotic-rich with the cultured veggies, and deeply mineralizing thanks to the sea vegetables, and the avocado nourishes the brain and hormones. It’s awesomely satiating and takes 45 seconds to compile. I usually make this while standing, working with someone, simultaneously emailing and definitely texting. I know the right answer would be to sit down and take 10 minutes to eat, but that doesn’t happen for lunch, ever.”

“If I’m home around 3pm, I always reach for coconut yogurt with cardamom, dried figs, walnuts, and apricots from a weekend farm visit—and a chunk of raw dark chocolate. I ferment big batches of coconut yogurt and make big batches of raw chocolate spiked with maca and any other medicinal herb I’m focusing on. It’s easy to do, and makes for potent, fast snack food throughout the month.”

“Today I also called into Moon Juice and got some ‘drive through.’ Work doesn’t keep me in the shop like it used to. Sadly I’m always on the go and running late, so I usually call in a mid-workday curbside pick-up. I grabbed a mint chip hemp milk with double servings of maca and sprouted brown rice protein, sweetened with stevia, as well as two Goodness Greens juices.”

“I had an early, pre-yoga dinner at Shima in Abbot Kinney, which is my 3-year-old’s favorite restaurant. I had a seaweed salad with micro cilantro and daikon, and a delicate broth of mushrooms and herbs.”

“From 7 to 9pm, I went to my Kundalini yoga class at Rama Yoga in Venice, with my go-to teacher, Harijiwan.”

“My son and I make a batch of almond milk and vanilla chia pudding for the next morning at bedtime. We like to have cups of it before it’s totally done, when it’s more like chia milk.”

“At 11pm, I had a nightcap of heart tonic and raw chocolate made from one of my big batches—this one was made with our Moon Pantry heirloom raw cacao, reishi and Chaga mushroom, sprouted brown rice protein, and coconut oil. I love chocolate—and on some evenings, I don’t want to deny the indulgence—so I’ve devised a million low glycemic recipes.”

A friend is getting his parents house ready for sale. The kitchen had a bunch  if electrical issues like dead switches one that blew the breaker when I turned it on, and just a rats nest of wires in the boxes. I don't know who wired the kitchen but he was one big f@#k up. I found splices that were twisted together and taped. No wire nuts. One of them were still live and found out the hard way.  :angry:  Replaced all the receptacles with grounded ones and found the plug on the refrigerator was over heating and was melting. Six hours of work and missed a nice day of riding.

Took up the tile floor in the basement of a friends house in preparation for carpet. Also did more receptacle replacement. Like I said last week who ever wired this house should be shot. When I turned off a circuit there was still 10 volts in the line. (to many hot's on one neutral wire and back feeding) Not enough to shock me but would give a good tingle.  Had to track down the other circuits and shut them off to.

Cutting a small piece of wood on my miter saw and the wood got away and bit me. Tiny puncture and a gouge on the thumb and a ragged tear on my index finger. Cuts are small. 1/4 inch on the thumb and a 1/2 inch 'L' on the tip of the finger.

I am cautious, really. I held the piece against the back fence and didn't push into the saw blade. I was even thinking about it when I was ripping the piece on the table saw.

In looking afterword, it appears the other piece got away and whacked the finger and thumb. It's a little chewed up. I did 11 pieces before and each time the cut piece stayed put.

I cursed and saw it was minor. Went in and cleaned up. Jeanne and I were bitching about whether or not I needed neosporen. :) She's definitely a computer geek as she said the project needed a blood sacrifice before I finished it :)

After bandaging, I went out and finished cutting the last 5 pieces. :)

Paper-in-Oil capacitors to replace the Gibson OEM chiclet caps.
50s wiring of the volume and tone pots.
OEM synthetic nut replaced and custom cut with a bone nut.
Restrung with a wound G.

Since the OEM Les Paul Traditional Pro II had uncovered zebra bobbin pickups to begin with, the appearance didn't change. HOWEVER the tone was greatly improved.

Push stick?

I use one on the table saw regularly but didn't consider it for the miter saw. I think the issue is the fence has enough of a gap for the blade that it might not be possible. My fingers were in the yellow warning zone and I was careful. Because the blade would take a tiny bit when I lifted it, I was pulling the spare piece to the left when the cut was done. Maybe I pulled it a touch too soon and pulled the good piece under the blade.

Not a lot done today, lazy Sunday and all.
I did mow the lawn in front & back yards, washed the cars.
Now looking over the deck at the recent mow & drinking a beer w/laptop in. Fog is coming in fast can't see the waves, time to go in.

Wow Dude that looks a bit toooooo chilly for me.
Not trying to stick a finger in your eye, for me the snow is something we go to for the experience and the beach is where we live. To each their own I guess

Jeanne took me to a strip club for Valentine's Day. It was interesting as I'd never been before but there was no attraction. The girls were nice looking but uninspiring. Not moving to the music, just gyrating. I was a little embarrassed honestly.

1) WD was interesting tonight.

2) Jeanne - gotta give her due credit for the spunky idea. What'll you do for her next year?

That sounds about right for a strip club.  The one time I ever went was pretty much the same, except I was impressed by the chick who could hold onto the pole and put her boots on the ceiling.

On an entirely unrelated note, I am currently trying to watch two kids and grade papers at the same time.  Note how I am posting here.

So, you're saying you're "talented", kinda like boots on a ceiling talented?
