Air Bag
Wednesday, August 24, 2005

Sorry about the lack of updates, was at a meeting in Utica for a few days, working on that big Digicom merger...

So whats with the name "air bag" anyway? Now we all have gotten used to that name, so it sounds very normal to us... But when you really think about it, it is a dumb name for what the object is. What about something like safety cushion? Or collision buffer? Or gas accelerated transonic ballistic nylon emergency barrier?

Ok even if I cant think of something better, air bag is a bit stupid... You dont call a hose a "water tube" do you? Or the car itself, is it a "people box"? Just saying, its a pretty nice invention, maybe a better name would help it out.

The way of the master (bater that is)

I didnt even have to press the button, the massive volume of pron, warez, and violent computer games on my computer, combined with the Cookbook dedicated to anarchy (and some communism) made the web page click no right away.

Mike Seaver ?!?! Talk about growing pains...

Oil computer

This is an oil cooled computer. This has been done now and then since the 90s. Oil is a poor conductor of electricity, but has a decent thermal conductivity. Actually one of the biggest problems is oil getting into connections and acting as an insulator there...

If anyone out there wants to, I hear you can use butter too.

Lightning hit
Wednesday, August 10, 2005

A few days ago, there was a severe storm that passed just north of my house. While we really need the rain here, we got next to nothing. Just one mile away, there seems to have been a lot of rain. Everyone got the wind, however, and some really bad lighting. Branches all over the area were knocked down, and one hit a power line down the road which I saw after starting small fires in the dry grass.

In any event, the lighting was very heavy, and I was watching the storm through the back doors. Many local strikes were within 1000 feet, and I watched carefully as flashes occurred all around. In an instant, a horribly loud crash came along with two bright flashes of light. A lighting strike occurred in the woods at the edge of my lawn! After each strike, there was not only the incredibly loud spectrum of sound, but also balls of plasma lasting a fraction of a second longer than the bright light of the lighting bolt proper.

Upon inspecting the area an hour later, I found that one of our large trees was directly hit. Included are the images of that tree. The full length of it had a strip of bark shot off, and there were large pieces of bark all over the lawn. Clearly if you were close, you not only would have been exposed to the bolt, but also the resulting shrapnel. Anyway, enjoy….

In the beginning, there was MOTO. And he divided the void into light and darkness, and created the lands and the waters of this world, and made the waters to lap upon the land and the land to crumble into the water. And MOTO created the plants and animals of this world, and man and woman, and made them as many as the stars. And then moto created computers, and they were pretty sweet.

This is a hamster we took care of a year ago... Pretty funny little guy, who recently passed away. His son lives on in the same cage, carrying on where the first left off : sleeping on his back during the day, and eating, drinking, and running around at night.
