Not just another Stumbling Blog.
Well, I made it. I am now five years old. I guess I am all grown up seeing that my owner has abandoned me. I have heard that he has some great topics to write about, but I guess he just has to do it. I am not sure when he will, but I am looking forward to it.
Well, I made it. I am now four years old. I guess I am all grown up seeing that my owner has abandoned me. I have heard that he has some great topics to write about, but I guess he just has to do it. I am not sure when he will, but I am looking forward to it.
I heard word that my old house in Plano had burned down. This is the house where both my children were born. The house were dozens of friendships were made and grew. It was my first house. I cut my homeowner’s teeth there. It is gone.
The good news is that no one was hurt in the blaze.
Mean Time Between Failure
Well it has happened again. Hard drives die. This time I am getting I/O errors connecting to the drive, so the physical platters may be just fine. This is the replacement drive that I got in November 2008. So the replacement drive lasted about 15 months. The original drive lasted 11 months. MTBF is 1.2 million hours according to Seagate. Well, they are lasting longer at least, this one lasted about 11,000 hours. This next drive I get from them should last at least two years at this rate. I am getting the proper documentation ready to send this back to them and get another replacement drive. My plans for the server are pretty grand, but the two 500GB hard drives are all I really need at this rate, but adding another hard drive may make sense as well. Most functions on my server need two drives, so it is very limited at this point. Well, that and the fact that it is powered down too. That is pretty limiting as well.
I have way too may posts on backlog, but I did have to share this one.Â This would be a great use of my Windows Home Server and a better reason to get more home theater stuff.Â I wonder if I would need to get approval from the HOA?

I am a firm believer in low carb diets.Â They really have worked for me, Debily too.Â South Beach rocks!Â I have just heard about a new diet.Â Well, more of a lifestyle than a diet.Â South Beach is a lifestyle as well, but I digress.
This website will allow you to measure the carbon footprint of your meal.Â Yes, your carbon footprint of your food.Â Vegetables….good, protein…..bad.Â It appears that methane produce beef is bad for for the environment.Â Yes, methane is a greenhouse gas.Â Yes, it is much worse than carbon dioxide.Â Should I care?Â Do I care about how much cows belch? I don’t know.Â There mantra is to have a low carbon diet.Â Here is the link for those who are interested: Eat low carbon.
I guess this is what the world has come too.Â We are more concerned about the carbon footprint of our food than individual footprint of the person next to us.Â This is just another way for people to have disdain and contempt for others.Â That smug look they have, while eating their salad, is not for health, but for the health of the planet.Â Or so they think.
Most people on the leftern side of the fence believe the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old.Â We have had recorded measurements for the last 250 years or so.Â Do we really have a clue to weather cycles on this rock?Â We have learned about el nino, la nina, and even the cap.Â Thanks to Steve McCauley.Â We are afraid of global warming.Â When I was a kid we were afraid of the next ice age.Â Well, which one is it?Â Are we getting warmer or colder.Â The short answer is: we don’t know.Â We do not have enough scientific data to really know.Â We do not have enough data to know how the Earth’s temperature cycles throughout it’s lifetime.
Well, today is BOS’ third birthday.Â So, Happy Birthday!
I finally thought of the perfect url on the 11th and Blogospeer went live on the 12th.Â It has certainly been a ride.Â The ride, of late, has pretty much stopped, but I have posts in the back of my head just waiting to come out.Â I have had the time, just been too lazy.Â Maybe this will spawn me to blog more.
I have been very happy with this theme, so even though it is almost as old as the blog, it will probably be hanging around for a while.Â I may have to update the code though.Â I did have a couple of temporary themes for a few weeks until I found this one.Â It fits, works well, and has some pretty nifty Ajax features
I have no plans on letting BOS pass on, so we will see what the next years bring.
It has been over a month since my last post.Â Have I run out of things to write about?Â Nope, there’s plenty.Â MY list of topics includes: other cancer treatment problems, my last doctor’s visit, Relay for Life, and other things.Â So what will I post about now?Â Complete drivel.Â Here is a video linking two of my favorite things, Star Trek and Lost.
Speed, cost, accuracy. Choose two.
