Happy birthday, Laurel.
I’ve spent a lot of time in the last few days searching out dirt in other people’s blogs.
Are you ready for this?
Laurel is at sleep-away camp this week.
I know. I’ve been neglecting this. Again.
The scene: Ethan is sitting, quietly watching TV and eating his breakfast of blueberries and a bagel when the blueberries tip and fall on the floor.
Greg: "We don’t say ‘fuck.’"
Ethan: "I say ‘fuck’ when blueberries fall on the floor."

I apologize for the boneblog outage yesterday, seems power and internet here at the house have been getting worse and worse. As a result, I convinced my employer to move all of the servers and various network junk out of my "bunker" and into a colocation downtown.
Originally I had intended to make this a tediously planned move so the only outage would be me packing things into the car and moving them. Mother Nature and Ameren had different ideas. Our power went out about 9:30 Wednesday night and when it still wasn’t back up Thursday morning I decided to give up and move everything sooner. After the latest power outage and a failing UPS left several servers in less than stellar condition The Boneblog was a little low on the priority list. I don’t have a picture of the setup at the datacenter but trust me, it looks like something recently moved from Jefferson County. The Boneblog’s current home is on a pretty nice Poweredge 2900 that is stacked precariously on top of two not quite so nice white box severs from 5 – 6 years ago, none of which were ever intended to go in a datacenter rack. Oh well, at any rate it is a move up and all should be well.
