Re: Bill.

I met Bill once, in the Summer of 2007, in Victoria. My then-girlfriend (now wife) and I ran into Paul and Graham at one of PAX's concerts, and, being the consummate gentlemen they are, they invited us to come see some of British Columbia afterwards, on what would turn out to be a memorable trip.

Re: IPv4 address exhaustion

Hi. Network engineer, here. That means it's my job to deal with things like IP addresses. This is not the end of the world, or the end of the Internet. It will make being an ISP slightly complicated in the short run, and very complicated in the long run. The change from IPv4 to IPv6 will probably be...

You guys are awesome! Do you know how long it will actually take you drive from Tuscon to Vegas including stops, Sable? 7 hours, 23 minutes along the most direct route, according to Google Maps. I believe this also takes into consideration local speed limits. I don't plan on offering my $100 per po...

According to Google Maps, going the speed limit the whole way is about eight hours. Stopping for snacks and gas, probably closer to 9-10.

I lived in a place for a long time (And I will probably go back) where it was entirely possible that nature was going to kill you.

Re: LrrMobile Mk. II

I like both.

If I'm driving a big truck or a van, I like having an automatic, it makes handling an already-unwieldy vehicle a bit easier.

In my BMW, I cannot live without the manual. It is my favourite thing ever.
