2.5 acres later…

The mower was brought back into comission. A new wheel replacing the bend up guide wheel from last season. Astor was helpful and got the push mower running again with the aid of some starter fluid and a refresh of gas. With further wonderful help from Astor and Vulp, I got the 2.5 acres of […]


So I now have three different flavors of compilers on the linux box I am working on and am playing with the optimization flags for them. What ever happened to being a music major? 🙂 Oh well. Sometimes in life you hit -Wall and just have to move on.


Think it’ll make it on to Kitten Break? Or are there about to be broke kittens in that picture? I can’t quite tell. It could be a fun pic to caption. “Tom hoped the other kittens wouldn’t get suspicious and ask of he’d been using steroids.”


the_gneech got the scoop that Thurl Ravenscroft, the voice of Tony the Tiger, died at 91.

Hobby kits.

Some folks can be really dedicated: You know, my mind is weird. When I was a younger kid I think I remember that there was some sort of Count-Chocula-cereal related promo with a big purple werewolf chasing them or something. A year or two ago when I looked up things in google I found mentions […]
