    Re: Post Race!

    Woo hoo! Just fired up my new WiFi/Cable modem.
    I am finally on line with a Windows PC at home.

    It appears to be very fast. I am wired into the modem directly for this PC and will be hooking my chromebook up via WiFi.

    My only issue is I need to take a trip to the hardware store and pick up a very bright drop light. I have no flash lights as the batteries wear out before I ever need them.

    I need the light because the sticker on the bottom of the modem is black text on a black sticker and I cannot see the Wifi ID or default password.

    I'll keep y'all posted.

    Cell phones have flashes?

    Even if mine does I have a very hard time seeing anything on my phone.

    P.S. Picked up a small goose neck lamp. Needed one for my desk anyway. Found the SSID and pwd.

    Still no joy though. The WiFi lag is slow enough I get "Error loading Media. File not Found." when trying to watch a movie.

    Dern.

    Mostly it's just where we come to blow off some steam by posting irrelevant stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else. I've heard them referred to as watercooler threads though I have no idea why.

    Speaking of random....

    I was talking to a guy about a gaming table program (Fantasygrounds) that he was the developer on. The dice rolls on the game often seem very "not random". He said they use the standard random features (C++, I believe) using a time seed. As such, you'd think it would be very random. However, they then use this random number to kick off a physics engine that is used for a dice roll on the screen. Seems like if you are going to take a random number and run it through a third party library, then your 'random-ness' might not end up being so random. I had a one come up three out of four rolls on a D20 die. Statistically that is crazy. Sadly, getting the same number multiple times is not as unusual with the program as it should be.

    That I don't know. (This conversation was at a non-tech game conference last week-end - GenCon). I simply asked about the details on how they generated the dice rolls in the software, as they didn't seem very sound. One of my friends that I play with asked the same thing at a different time. They told us both that they are doing an update to the software that will let you roll a real die and then enter the number. That resolves any blame you give to the software about rolling statistically improbable results....

    But this is too serious of a tech topic to cover in a post race. I'm surprised nobody had done a word association in awhile....

    Yeah, a bit. The workout I did on Saturday kicked my butt a bit. The one I did this morning might not feel too good by tomorrow, either.

    Haven't heard anything about it but Louisiana's a pretty big place so he's probably fine. Fingers crossed though.

    You went to a Mosh pit in a Church?

    I have never heard of them i had to look them up, on first read i thought you had said "i went to Ministry" as in Ministry of Sound, and thought surely not Funky has turned into an EDM fan !!!

    I was a major industrial head in my twenties and Ministry were kind of the hub that most of the scene revolved around. Rev Co, Lard, 1000 Homo DJs, Ogre, Butthole Surfers... they all span off of or collaborated with Ministry at some point or another. Al Jourgensen was pretty much the centre of the universe.

    Google for Jesus Built my Hotrod. The guitars and drums are in completely different timings and it's so tight you barely notice. And Gibbys lyrics are... interesting.

    Let's not go there.

    DDay: The state of Idaho would probably be pretty happy swapping some Louisiana rain for some Idaho dry about now. Not too much rain, though, cause we've had such a large, widespread (and largely unreported) fire that our hills have no vegetation to hold onto the soil, so a sufficiently intense rain will bring them down.

    Doesn't everyone in Louisiana live on a house boat? I've seen The Water Boy and that was the impression I got. Also.. 'gators.

    Just had a read about the floods and... Wow! Why isn't it making the news?

    Re: Post Race!

    It's making plenty of news over here.

    What has me a bit puzzled is that the amounts of rain don't sound all that high. It sounds like only one or two feet of rain. That's a lot (especially since we average about 7" in a year where I live), but there are parts of the southeast that kind of live with it. When I was in the Florida Keys, tropical storm Gordon hit us three times. The first time dropped something like 12", then the storm went into the Gulf, turned around, came back over us and dropped somewhere around 20" only a couple days after the first pass. These things happen in the humid southeast, and it usually runs off. I assume that the actual totals are far higher than what I have heard about. Heck, I first heard it was only 8=10 inches. I've hiked in that much in a day.

    Today is a very sad day. RIP Jean-Baptiste Frédéric Isidore "Toots" Thielemans. Hearing him play on the closing theme to Sesame Street when I was 4 or 5 years old was what made me want to become a harmonica player. He was also provided the whistle on the original Old Spice jingle.
