  • MT Upgrade Woes

    Well, after another MT upgrade this last week, I broke the install again with the Storable module's breaking with regard to 56-bit vs. 64-bit storage (I think — I plan to research this more later today..).

  • Snowshoeing in Snoqualmie Pass

    Diann & I went snowshoeing up at Snoqualmie Pass this past Saturday at the Winter Trails Day event sponsored by the Seattle Mountaineers branch. It was pretty fun, actually, considering neither of us had ever been snowshoeing. Several snowshoe manufacturers were on-hand to let people try out their snowshoes ( MSR, Tubbs, Atlas and Red…

  • Graffiti

    On the way to work this morning, the bus drove by some interesting graffiti that said “Hells Angles Forever”. Funny, I didn't know that graffiti painters were into geometry!
