Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 08-12-2014 Great Flood of 2014 View Webcam for 08-12-2014 ADD A COMMENT
Great Flood of 2014Over 2.5 hours after leaving work, I'm finally home in what was second only to the great power outage of 2003 in terms of slow moving traffic. Every route I took seemed to have impassable water over the road, forcing a u-turn every 20 minutes. A mapping app that routes based on elevation would have been a best seller, and I kept kicking myself for not making one before heading home.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 08-10-2014 Drake Birthday Party View Webcam for 08-10-2014 ADD A COMMENT
Drake Birthday! One of the benefits of having kids is of course birthday parties. A place where adults who've had their social lives destroyed can finally mingle with others in the same situation. The topic of conversation is always about kids, which 4 years ago I'd want nothing to do with, but fortunately that switch was flipped on and I'm all about it now. Lila made a point to avoid the water in the water splash park, and hovered over the birthday cake for 20 minutes only to eat a quarter inch cube of it. Lucy meanwhile laughed on command and tried to eat anything that wasn't fit to be eaten, so a typical outing with both kids.

Garage Sale! What began as a plan to pack up our crap turned into a spontaneous garage sale. After seeing my neighbor had set one up, I decided to take advantage of the traffic. We quickly grabbed anything we didn't want and threw it into the driveway for the unwashed masses to finger through and offer 50 for. While we wound up making over $400 I also decided to shove everything that didn't sell to the end of the driveway and write FREE. Not surprisingly, it took a scant 10 minutes for everything to disappear after that and I felt good after the healthy purge.

Makers Fair! With Lila quickly approaching 4 years old, it was time to introduce her to nerd culture. I wanted to make sure she understands where she comes from so when she's in college she'll wait till she's 21 before she takes off the nerd glasses and lets down her hair and becomes the nerd-turned-hottie that every 80s movie depicted. I was pleased to see she preferred the star wars cosplay and hope she aspires to become a storm trooper while inventing various gadgets. The go-cart races were also a highlight which is why I've decided to hold on to my old lawn mower. Overall it was a hot but interesting event, but one I don't plan to attend again.

Friends! The Senator decided to arrange a meeting of epic proportions in the guise of a going away party for my upcoming exit from the state. While I'm clearly not worthy of the friends I've accumulated, it was nice to see everyone show up and make homophobic jokes at each others expense. The kids all jumped in the neighbors trampoline and the adults shot darts at each others faces. After a few beers I got as close as I can to sentimental and thanked the Senator for his efforts (and food).

Cousins! Lisas annual family reunion did not disappoint this year, with all cousins reporting for adventure at the usual stops. A fairly large pool was thrown in the mix this year as well giving both Lila and Lucy an extra dose of giggles.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 06-11-2014 Server Has a New Home View Webcam for 06-11-2014 1 COMMENT
With the house empty and for sale, I decided it was time to cancel my cable service. After disconnecting this server, my home server and the media center I realized I'd also be returning the cable card in my media center. I'm finally a cable cutter, but not really because I'm sure I'll still get some basic channels at my dads house. Speaking of which, I subsequently moved all machines into my dads basement so I'm officially based at his house now. My dream of being a 30 something living at home has finally come to pass, and to celebrate I upgraded his router to support the port forwarding needed to run this server out of his basement. Sadly, the Gnomecam and Weather pages will no longer update, but saving $120 / month in cable bills is enough to help me get over my loss.

Grandma Funeral While it's sad my grandma passed away, the funeral was a great big family reunion that got Lila all riled up and Lucy handed around like a hot potato. I was unable to farm Xbox achievements at this funeral as it as a more rural setting, but the bonfire and polaris rides more than made up for it. It was nice to spend a weekend with my cousin and his family, and Lila enjoyed destroying/hiding his kids toys while Lucy as usual just enjoyed being Lucy.

Rating: 3 - Link to this Article 06-05-2014 Bitcoin Rampdown View Webcam for 06-05-2014 ADD A COMMENT
Bitcoin Dropoff After successfully mining half a bitcoin, I decided it was time to ramp down my operations. On May 25th I sold both of my ASICMiner cubes on eBay (for half of what I paid for them) and purchased two Antminer U2 devices. I couldn't just go cold turkey with bitcoin, but you can clearly see the dropoff that happens when you go from almost 70 GH/s down to a measly 4 GH/s. Hopefully this new (more power friendly) setup keeps the itch away without costing close to $40 / month in electricity. I was also starting to have a thermal crisis in my garage without the cold of winter keeping the temps down. I quit Litecoin and am mining Dogecoin exclusively at work (because Doge).
