back online (again!)

so, i think it’s time to begin posting again. after getting out of the hospital, i think i’ve had to catch up for the last 6 months. things are calming down a little now that softball season is over and we’re clearing out the to-do list a little. by the time i got back to the blog, i realized that a few posts are missing, but i only have one reader anyway, so whatever.

i’m at work today till midnight covering a shift for one of our australian guys. i had a couple beers today at the art and wine festival so even a small nap might be in order.

#24 reason the us govt is lame

Senator Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) said some interesting things about the Internet during the recent hearings on net neutrality:

“I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?”

“Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially…”

“They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.”

“It’s a series of tubes.”

“And if you don’t understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.”

Here’s the full story

i’m catching up on old stuff since i got to work this morning and my laptop wouldn’t boot up because of hard drive failure. i do regular backups, which is nice, but i have to wait till monday for IT to bring it back to life. in the meantime, it makes for a good excuse to catch up on my old crap clogging my inbox.

updated photo website!

i spent some time in the last week to move the picture library from skoshe.com to doylez.com. what a task. the skoshe.com is up for renewal in the next few months so i thought it would be a good time to get rid of that domain and stick with doylez.com and an unnamed private domain for the home network. you can visit the new photo website here. i stuck with the kubrick theme since both pivot and coppermine both have that prebuilt, although I’m going to start fiddling with it a little more here and there.

stay tuned for more postings!
