"They use the imperial system, they wouldn't know what an 'ice train' is", to paraphrase Vincent Vega here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercity-Express

My subnotebook never makes any fan noise in normal operations, but when it does, it is frightening, too. And yes, this mirrored sound is totally nice, never thought such a small piece of hardware could sound so, well, "ok". Probably due to not being all plastic, too.

I editing one page on somebody's weebly web page.

This was a struggle so I do consider it an accomplishment.

GRE is done. With any luck, I won't be around this fall to start grad school, but I'm going through the process as though I were, since it would suck to delay school for another year and then have the mobilization fall through.

Next is Security+, then I will take a break from useful things and get my general radio license.

Don't let them know about the BBS's you visit when it comes to security

Grats on the GRE!

Sec+ is a breeze, really.  And you're a much deeper geek than I, so you should have no problem with it.  If you want to go toward that direction, though, have you considered a CISSP or a CISSM?

I'm not actually worried per se about the Security+, but there are a fair number of things I know OF but not necessarily ABOUT. It's all part of the baseline cert list required for DoD to do computery things. I have a Certified Ethical Hacker course in a few weeks also on that list which will be similarly kinda-sorta-not-really challenging. Once I have the baseline things, the Army will put me in for higher level, more interesting courses.

Hmmm...

Do you know if you're planning on taking the course in Maryland? Or is it virtual? Do you know if the course is administered by a private company... say... TeleCommunication Systems?

Ah well. Just looking for an intersection where none existed again.

My small achievement today: lunch with Aahz. Yes that's right: meatloaf with the meatloaf.

I promised myself that I'd file my taxes early this year.

Well, here it is April 10 and I've just completed my latest filing ever.

The sad thing is, the government has been earning interest on my money for a few extra months, money they will use to keep the lights on in large buildings where bureaucrats decide how to screw me more.

Soldered a thermal sensor, using a transistor and a capacitor. Attached it to the mainboard of a XW8600 HP workstation and it works fine. Now the fans in my frankensteinian hackintosh spin at reasonable low rate.
