I have stripped out my shop and my plans are epic. Which means I am stoved up (sore) for the next few months.
The plan is to extend the shop 8 more feet and pour a raised 3 inch concrete floor on the inside to keep the water out when it rains.
Also the floor will tie down the structure better when tornadoes show up. Tornadoes may blow my house/old-hospital away. But not my garage.
I also plan on building a brick deck and a sunken fi
First, this really isn't an Ubuntu or a Debian or a Mint issue. The problem likely lies with Broadcom and their lack of availability of firmware information for their wireless hardware. Broadcom does make a "generic" wireless driver for Linux, but it allegedly doesn't work with everything. Therefore, the Ubuntu development team have had to use fwcutter to pull the firmware information from a Windows driver to build one that works for Linux. Here's the fix, and I'm pretty sure this will work fo
Few days ago there was a serious fire accross the Bay at Chevron refinery in Richmond, CA.
Lot of fire, lot of smoke, number of people in neighborhood complaining about respiratory problems.
Yesterday on the news we had smiling Chevron spokeswoman apologizing and presenting 800 number for filing claims if anyone feels like being hurt.
I just laughed. Even if any claim will get approved it won't cost Chevron even one penny.
Gas price at my gas station held pretty much even for la
Well. Moved everything out of the kitchen. Disconnected Sink. Only Fridge and Kitchen stove remain.
Busted out drywall on outside facing wall. Removed old 1950's Windows. My house is a old hospital from WW2 when Pecos was a airbase. Kitchen was made by me knocking out 2 patient rooms and custom plumbing the fixtures.
I bought new 2x4s and re framed outside wall from the inside as old framing boards were termite damaged. We have have had Orkin already treat the place for a couple of g

I went to see "The Social Network" movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1285016/)
Very interesting movie about "Facebook" creator, Mark Zuckerberg, played superbly by Jesse Eisenberg:
Rated PG-13, but surely not for kids, because it contains mostly diialogs.
Mark appears to be rather nasty character, first stealing the idea from some other Harvard students (settled in court for $65 million) and then screwing up his initial partner to take it all.
I wasn't aware, that he actually t
Well, since everybody seems to be blogging, it may be time for me to start too :)
It's been a beautiful day in Daly City, so far. Sunny and warm.
I was able to fix all hooks issues after the board upgrade, which is always time consuming.
About to start watching Shark's 2nd game of a regular season. Playing couple of first games in Sweden, against Columbus.
