Site Brokenness

Posted on June 4th, 2007 11:03 AM | Comments (0) | Pings (0)

I spoke way too soon in saying “We’re Back”. The server is up and running, and has been for a bit now. But the upgrade that caused all the trouble a few weeks ago has left my site crippled: None of the RDF-backed features (pictures!) are currently working because of mysterious problems with mod_perl and Redland.

Site Outage

After a tricky upgrade of glibc, you may have noticed that this site was down all of yesterday, and part of today. The problem been tenuously fixed (although the more permanent solution is still unclear), but things might be a bit spotty until the underlying problem can be determined.

I’m off to Paris for 10 days to spend time with Kat (and her friends, and a weekend with Leo, and his friends). Leo, Kat and I are going to roadtrip around Belgium this weekend, and I’m hoping to seek out some great Belgian beer and get a chance to take some photos.

I’ve just finished the last book in Kim Stanley Robinson’s “Science in the Capital” trilogy, Sixty Days and Counting, and it was of course great. As always, there’s some hard science fiction, but this one seemed to be more concentrated on the politics, the people, and their relationships.

Snowy Weather

After a week of highly varied weather, it snow a couple of inches this morning. It was apparently great snow for making snowmen, because there were four of them outside my apartment and I passed another four on a short walk around the campus.

I spent all day Saturday in Boston shooting photos with Matt. I rented a Nikon PC 85mm lens for the weekend and we played around with it all around town. We had more than just the tilt/shift lens, though.

I went to The Brickskeller on Friday, enjoying their ludicrously large beer selection. Supposedly the world’s largest beer menu (they claim over one thousand), but after several successive failures to order a beer on the menu that they actually had on hand, I’m somewhat skeptical. Still an excellent experience. (Don’t visit their website unless you’re prepared for a 2000+ pixel wide monstrosity that will make your eyes bleed.)

Ten Years

Ten years ago today, I was hired at Cnation (née CyberNation). Some of my fondest memories come from those early Cnation days, and I’m really quite happy that I still get chances to spend time with (and sometimes work with) a lot of the original Cnation crowd.

Just a quick update on where I’m at. I spent the day moving into my new apartment in Maryland. Orientations start on Thursday and classes start next week, but for now it’s pretty quiet and lonely. I’m still in the process of unpacking and trying to figure out what I still need for the apartment (chairs!).

Kat and I got back from Maryland last night where we moved in a car-load of boxes to my new apartment. The entire round trip from Providence took us about 32 hours. The new apartment is decent — certainly workable for only nine months. I’ll be back there in a couple of weeks to finish moving in and start classes.

Personal Report: Update

As I promised in Personal Report, the other day I sat down and wrote some code to pull together some personal data and consolidated it on my about page. Currently, the data I’ve got updating nightly is: recently watched movies, recently listened to music, and beer I’ve had recently (which is compared to my beer data from 2004).

Personal Report

Posted on February 9th, 2006 04:14 AM

I try to make a lot of the information in my life public. Photos, travels, movies, music, how I organize files on my computer, and even what beer I’m drinking. But I’ve never really felt like I’m conveying this information in as interesting a way as it deserved.

Green Living

Posted on November 1st, 2005 09:44 PMPings (1)

Discussing consumer electronics with Tim earlier today, and then consumerism and Wal-mart, finally leading to peak oil and consumption, I was startled by his reaction to the problem. Startled because despite the fact that I think about these things a lot (likely a significant portion of my life, recently), it’s all become rather muted with repetition. Tim’s reaction brought the impact of the situation flooding back to me.

While in Santa Monica a couple of weeks ago and looking for something on my computer, Tim mentioned that he was amazed by the level of organization that some people had that he didn’t. I thought this was interesting since I sometimes feel the exact same way, yet he was commenting on the organization of my data. So I thought it would be interesting to write down some of the ways in which I organize my data, and invite you all to comment on how you go about similar tasks.

The Year in Review

The year has somehow snuck past me, and is about to become nothing more than a memory. Just as I was getting really comfortable writing 2004 — with the 4 dropped down, so that the vertical stroke becomes a descender below the baseline. It just made me happy to write it. And now I’ll have to get used to writing 2005. Bleh. Herewith, a summary of what I’ve done this year.

So. The Wedding. Lots to think about, and too little time and conciousness left in the night to recount it all here. But here are a few thoughts.

Coming Clean

Posted on April 24th, 2003 08:28 AMPings (0)

T, I’m sorry about what happened in Berlin. I’ve never forgiven myself for it, and I’m not sure I’ve ever properly appologized to you. So I’m sorry. B, I’m sorry things didn’t work out. I never meant for things to…

New Years. I feel so out of touch with people. Which raises the question, was I ever in touch? On one hand, I find myself accepting, at least outwardly and to some extent, the social setting of parties, while on…
