With great sadness, this morning I found that one of my favorite shows, Dirty Jobs, has been cancelled. Thanks Mike and team for 8 years of fun and appreciation of less than glamourous jobs that make everything just work for everyone else.
Got the kids geared up for candy acquisition at Shoppingtown Malloween. Jilly was a butterfly (can’t wait till Babci sees the pics) and Luke was a bear.
At the mall, they changed from candy dispensing at actual stores to a row of tables down the middle of the hall. Trying to decide if it was a better arrangement. Felt like there were a zillion more kids than last year, but it might have just been that everybody was more packed in together. There were some log jams, but all in all, pretty fun for everyone.
Far quieter last night than I expected. At the moment, there’s no wind, and the sky is clear with a big, bright moon.
Latest path forecasts show Sandy is gonna track further west than previously expected. Keeping fingers crossed.
NYC looks like a big mess. Hope everyone (including my bro) can struggle through.
Needed to quick download a copy of a website. Quick google led me to wget, which makes the operation a simple one liner.
Unfortunately, its not part of OSX command line tool kit any more. No problem, let me just download it and compile. Oh look, Mountain Lion uninstalled the command line compiler tools like make. Grumble.
Hmm, I think I’ll pass, myself…
I vote for the Thermaltake BlacX Docking Station. I have the Rosewill branded version and its the simplest way to use bare drives with minimal fuss.
A cool interactive tracker for Hurricane Sandy as it lines up a path through central New York over the next few days.
Interesting. Its kinda like a github for hardware. Also has some kind of back end for actually producing circuit boards. Nice!
