Funny story talked about on Bob and Tom this morning.
FLORENCE, Ore. (AP) — Firefighters say things got out of hand last weekend after one of three workers arriving about 6 a.m. for a house remodeling job south of Florence built a warming fire in the carport.
KCST-FM reports the fire spread, so another worker used an excavator to knock down the carport and try to pull it away from the house.
Sean Barrett, fire marshal for Suislaw Valley Fire and Rescue, says that didn’t help, and the blaze then spread to a Douglas fir tree.
The issue’s description says that while some users received the 502 error when logging in, others had latency in accessing their emails…. 502 errors usually happen due to poor IP communication between servers. There have been a number of previous occasions when Google users have encountered a similar error, but this seems to be the first time when its has affected a multitude of Google services.
While I was pedalling into work this morning, I was listening to the morning show on KBOI radio. The talk of the day was all about “free” cell phones and other government waste. Wow. I had no idea how stupid this phone program is. Really opened my eyes.
The original intent of the program was to provide lower income families with a phone for emergencies, and so that they could look for work or be contacted by potential employers or temporary job services. The program has actually been in existence for years (so much for the “Obama phone” jokes), and up until recently was not a real waste of time and money.
This is a rant, and at least partially inspired by a discussion I had a couple weeks ago.
Nearly every day I read some sort of new article about the failure of Windows 8, or how the replacement product, currently called “Blue”, is in the works. Why? Are they just trying to repeat the reboot of Vista as Windows 7? I just don’t get what’s going on in Redmond?
How does memory work and why?
Perhaps it was the opening credits with the giant Imperial warship shooting at the tiny luxury ship. Or the spiralling stars when the Millenium Falcon plunged into hyperdrive. Perhaps the image of the desert on Tatooine? Maybe it was Chewbacca playing holographic chess, or maybe the final explosion of the Death Star. I know I always picture the scenes that take place in the weapons locker and garbage disposal.
