The Rack is Back! Special thanks to unixwolf and drax0r for finding, coordinating, and retrieving my beloved Sun rack. Thank you, thank you, thank you! In fact, this was pivotal in my latest decision - I was asked if I wanted the Sun Ultra 60 in a deskside or rack-mount option. I don't have to tell you which one I chose. Mr. Maddog is being quite generous...

In other cool news, I was able to work ceaselessly online with Sprint's new mobile broadband USB modem plugged directly into the UX280P. What an awesome tool to have! Granted the modem is fully 1/5 the size of the Vaio, but it works so well, and with the USB port out of the way, its truly the mating of the two which allows me to reach geekdom. Pictures to follow.

Speaking of pictures, dear irulan_amy has conspired with my interests, blog entries, and um...sarcasm, to create two unique icons for me:

I love them both, thank you!

After a busy day at work (and being an hour off all day due to setting all my devices except the UX280P to EDT, photogoot began to arrange logistics for our meeting this evening. He drove to Union Station (I was working across the street at the Hall of the States) where we dined at the same restaurant he and his (then) wife took my wife and I for dinner the day we were married. I had the fajitas (right next to the fluffernutter with fries on the menu). We came back to the hotel with some Yuengling beer, where we caught up on some visiting until he drank so much he began making overtures to galinda822 then passed out.

Just like old times...

he began making overtures to galinda822

That's how I knew he was drunk! He's usually much more gentlemanly. Sometimes you just have to make allowances. :)

He's a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Strut on a line, its discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine I'm after you
Mouth is alive, all running inside
And I'm hungry like the wolf...

Let us not forget the facts of yestreday evening. There were no "overtures". Mr. Howton does like his little flights of fancy though, especially of they stir up the status quo among his friends and peers. Even if there were overtures they would have been gentlemanly. I did not consider the playful banter we enjoyed yesterday as anything close to an overture. not that there is anything wrong with that. Besides I have had far more Scotch tonight than yesterday, and alas no overtures. Although the night is young...

by the way, what the hell is an overture? Anyone? Not you SphincterX boy!

I don't get the icons.

Glad you had fun in DC.

Um...could I be as bold as to suggest that photogoot and galinda822 get to know each other better? I sense a budding relationship.

There once was a boy with no sense
Who's gift was an abnormally rude propense
He'd insult without cause
For no reason at all
And wonder why all took offense

You're kind of like a dumb rude bastard. or maybe your exactly like one... either way. screw off.

The green of my blog is representative of the VT100 terminal console. The only other color that terminal came in was amber.

Yay, I'm glad you like the icons. I do sarcasm well. ;)

Hope your trip to DC has been fun!

And 140 comments? Geez, you guys have been busy. Or not so busy depending on the perspective. =P

I had NO IDEA where you came up with chartreuse...that is, until I re-read my comment on you post. Point to you, ma'am.

Hope your trip to DC has been fun!
The first half was work. The last half, however, was all play ;)

And 140 comments? Geez, you guys have been busy. Or not so busy depending on the perspective. =P
I simply provide the canvas.

For the record I just read, in full, your initial post. :-)

And this is the only thing you were lead to say? Nice.
