Dreamland

I coordinated with Karl and someone named Connor to ride bikes to school together. We go all sorts of ways and get there.

I could not work out using anyone’s chain, and did like Karl and just took my front wheel. Then, I hid my bike under a wooden platform, and worried.

Then, as everyone filtered inside, I realized it was not my school. How would I coordinate classwork? Surely there must be a way, but the bell rang. There is no time for any coordination.

But wait. I’m not in school anymore. I step inside, and time accelerates. Everyone is congregating inside to leave.

I ask Karl why he’s even there, and it’s for the girls. This seems to be HS and university mixed. While the implication is not gross / underage, it’s still early 20s not comfortable to me.

In the dream, there were not really any females. There were a few guys, and then non-descript students.

Someone asks, and I explain why I wasn’t in class… “I’ll be 40 in October, I’m not in school anymore.”

Karl tells the others, “you guys don’t want to know how old I am.”

I ask quietly, “you’ll be 49 this year, right?”

He non-verbally affirms, not really wanting to accept it.

I find Connor’s Engi game pack, but am having a hard time getting his attention to give it to him.

The dream fades into beeps, as the 6:30am iPhone Radar sound goes off...

Nappage...

That was a nice nap. Almost made up for how late I was up. Woke up to two calls.

* Jenn nearly ran over a cyclist in her neighborhood who was wearing all black on a black bike at dusk with no reflectors, no lights, after turning onto a residential side street. She caught a glimpse of a green helmet, and all was good. PLEASE BE VISIBLE WHEN YOU ARE ON A BIKE!

* My uncle is running into the age-old issue of PDF files being small when you get them, but too big for a mail server after print, sign, scan. Rather than one of us trekking across the metroplex, or teaching 6 people how to sign up for and use Google Drive, I'm going to see if I can show him how to use Filezilla to send me the document so I can shrink it.
But, for now, supper!

This feels more like a livejournal post. Maybe I'll post there instead. I feel like I really do more journaling than booking of the faces.

Tasty!

Slight allergy coming up. More details on FB and Wordpress ( www.omnitech.net/blog ), but the LJ app does not support cut/paste. WTF.

Dominos Tracker API

I wanted a way to send myself a text message when Dominos was "Out the Door". It turns out they have an XML API, so I did poor-man's BASH parsing and run this periodically to have it send me a message.

HEATMAPS!

xaminmo
I updated my GPS heatmap on Strava. They only do for Cycling OR Running, but nothing else, nor a combined map. *sigh*

So, my walks that had GPS were converted to runs. Some had a little running. It zooms way out, because most of it was in the Bahamas, but there's a little blob on the ...

They have always seemed sketchy, but last year they worked.

In September, they disabled a lot of accounts. I try to use the device and all it does is redirect me to an i
portant notice. I follow the link to a 404.

If I log in and go to Contact Us, it redirects to the forums. The forums are ...

After DR of a TSM server, do you need to restore the primary storage pool from the copy cool ?
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
It depends on if it's small files or not. I normally have a small-file pool, which is the DIRMC, VMTLMC, and TOCDESTINATION. The offsite for this is kept reclaimed down to 1 tape, and I try to restore that primary pool first.

For large file, TDP, VM and image full backups, they can ...

USB Power Packs Capacity
Josh 2004 Happy
xaminmo
In layman's terms, think of it electricity like water.
* Amps is the stream width (almost nozzle width.)
* Volts is the spray pressure.
* Watts is the volume of water in one second.

So, .00000001 amps at a million volts won't kill you, but it might poke a tiny hole in you. 1000 amps at ...
