I don’t do much home finishing work, but I’m sort of proud that I got this thing done myself. After finishing the attic, the windowsill on the one window was unfinished. I decided to do the work myself. It was an ugly and glaring flaw in the otherwise well finished space, it was time toRead More
We’ve been hunting around for an inexpensive rider mower for Mosaic ever since we moved in. Since the playfield is getting close to mowing length, I was beginning to worry we wouldn’t find something in time. We found this little fellow at a roadside mechanics house up here in Maine. He always has snowblowers, mowers,Read More
Back from an awesome weekend in upstate New York with about 180 friends. Geek camping at it’s best. One of the the weekend was making in the neighborhood of 140 different flavors of ice cream using liquid nitrogen as the freezing agent. Zach participated pretty freely this year, and much fun was had by all.Read More
With the upcoming iPhone v3.0 update, Apple has said they will be supporting Bluetooth stereo headphones via A2DP. This is a huge win for me, as now I can have a set of comfortable headphones that can double as my hands free link to my phone. I used to have a set of bluetake headphonesRead More
The last load out. Tomorrow the dumpster gets picked up. I never enjoy the last bits if a move. I sort of wish it could all be done at once. But I know that has it’s own stresses. As I left Natick, I changed the ‘home’ favorite in my GPS to Mosaic. Guess it’s officialRead More
Trying out a blog tool from the iPhone. More details later once I figure out if it sucks or not. We moved today. 9 hours with professional movers, plus a cast of thousands of wonderful awesome people. Pictures are on flickr, but for now I’m too tired to list out all the kudos necessary. ARead More
At Arisia ’08 I saw this video as part of their film series. The DVD was not available at the time, though it’s one that I do want to add to my collection. (edit: apparently it is available at JasperMorello.com, which appears to be down at the moment). Now, here it is in it’s entirety…Read More

Not 64 bit. Originally uploaded by eidolon Gall dang it. ‘ketch’ will be the new application server at our colo facility. I’vebeen slowly piecing it together and installing pieces on it. Tonight I sat down to load Debian etch. Lo, it kept coming up with: Your cpu does not support long mode Turns out theseRead More
Yawl as of January 2009 Originally uploaded by eidolon (How geeky is it that I blog pictures of my computers?) Continuing the ‘home sick during a snowstorm’ thread, today I set up a couple machines in Chez Geek for ripping and tackled my backlog of CD’s from my great cd un-casing. The trick here wasRead More

(no subject) Originally uploaded by eidolon A year ago, filling up the van with gas cost somewhere around $80. Now that I’m commuting 60 miles a day, having the price back down is lovely. If it stays here long enough for us to move, I’ll be happy.
momsmac Originally uploaded by eidolon Mom’s mac mini has been acting up lately, throwing disk errors, refusing to boot, etc. It’s 3.5 years old, out of Apple warranty, and, well, it was time to upgrade. After a brief discussion and a glance at Apple’s refurb listings, we picked up a Macbook. 120gig of disk space,Read More
Picture 018 Originally uploaded by eidolon When we first starting putting Mosaic together, I was all excited to exercise my basic scrounging skills and start accumulating stuff to fill out all our new spaces. Alas, Mosaic took a LOT longer than expected to come to fruition, but now we can finally start getting all theRead More
