@TerryMooreII Keep a few on-hand, even in your travel bag… or you’ll have to get creative. :-)

@TerryMooreII In my house, one golden dollar coin. On vacation at Disney, a Tinkerbell keychain. On a plane in Hong Kong, 10HKD.

A little hesitant to load iOS7 beta 4 on my primary iPhone. But hey, in for a penny, in for a pound.

Today was my last day at Tekelec. I start my new job at Oracle tomorrow. Same building, same team, same project. Surreal.

Successfully re-calibrated wife’s GPS touchscreen (again). Plus, added a hack to log NMEA data.

Happy to hear that the @ncnearspace crew retrieved their “First Library In Space” payload today!

@ncnearspace I hope somebody brought a canoe!

@ncnearspace Woo hoo! SPOT report in! 36.44488, -79.01053

via web

@ncnearspace a SPOT report sure would be nice about now, since I don’t expect too much APRS digipeater coverage in that area.

@Hay @chronic That’ll be obsolete when we all switch to using Swatch Beat Time.

@nivex NSL-3 aimed high, reached an estimated 120k ft.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to nivex

@ncnearspace … he said, just as the balloon proved him wrong. :-)

via web in reply to rockhopper

@ncnearspace I think the APRS GPS is lying about altitude, skirting just below 40k ft.

via web

@nivex @ncnearspace Very strange jump in GPS reports… new lat&long, but ALMOST same altitude=38910. Is it coming back down already?

Apparently, Siri did not have a passport, so I had to leave her behind at the border.

Emerging from a Twitter blackout last week… caused in part by lack of mobile data while in Canada.

@emmarockin If a family was passing through Pittsburgh for an overnight stay, what would be a must-see?

deuceplatypus Since this file is taking like five seconds to open, I’ll just go check Twitter for an hour.

How do you separate metal shavings from a magnet?

Conveniently, the power blinked for a second right around midnight, resetting all of our clocks to the correct time.

rtphokie Q: What do you get when you cross a mosquito with a mountain climber? A: Nothing. You can’t cross a vector and a scalar.

I am now running my own SSL certificate authority, encrypting web and mail traffic for multiple domains with ease.

You know that “caught up” feeling when your bills are paid and the grass is mowed and you can relax for a day? Yeah, me neither.

Playing with “Certificate Patrol” on Thunderbird. I think I’ll need it soon. But it does not seem to PATROL anything.

I think it’s pretty clear that I have more job security than I will ever need.

One more reason for me to dislike ClearCase - just found some directories where file name exists, file itself does not. And this is normal?

. @ncnearspace knocks it out of the ball park! Track the balloon at aprs.fi/#!call=AK4CH-11

Tuning in to @ncnearspace balloon launch from Durham Bulls stadium. Good luck to the launch and chase teams!

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. Clearcase sucks. Spent the last 30m waiting for “mastership” so I could check files in.

Tool at $WORK uses “-r” for “request” and “-c” for “confirm”. I keep getting it backwards, thinking “-c” for “change” and “-r” for “read”.

Today would have been my Nanny’s 97th birthday. Her funeral was last week.

Just spent the last two hours reporting a backlog of iOS7 bugs that I have noticed over the last two weeks.

Second report of an escaped hermit crab - up the glass wall, down to the floor, down the hall, down the stairs, and to the kitchen! Wow!

I don’t think of it as losing a jet ski. I think of it as gaining a lake house and a mechanic.
