Actual error message seen on actual VPS host just now.

Quiet talk starts slow and grows exponentially. My head stopped hurting at all the maths and started blowing off at the awesome around minute 30. Then at minute 56 he shows one slide of code that uses a SMT solver on a regular haskell functions, to find inputs that produce a desired output. Angels descend, singing, etc.
Solar panel upgrade complete. Making more power at 6:30 pm with a tree shade on the panels than the old panels used to at solar noon!
Hacked my sheevaplug's power supply so it will run on anything from 6V-48V DC. Voltage regulator is the size of a quarter.
Quite a contrast from wiring up massive PV combiner box yesterday!
5 foot box tower = cat heaven
I wondered where Michi was spending all her time lately..
I have a porch again! It had turned into a construction zone mess with every surface covered with tools and materials.
(Which reminded me of growing up in a house with an addition that was in a state of suspended construction for years.)
Now if I can just get the damn drill to charge again, only 5 holes to drill before I'm all done except for connecting up cables..
Why won't this drill charge, I only have 1.5 holes remaining to drill. Gnnnnn
The tiny town near me has gotten a taco truck that serves authentic barbaoca, lengua, etc. Awesome!
A kid age 10 or so also seems to like it, since he drove up in a pickup truck while I was there. This is right in the middle of town at one of 3 stop lights, a block from the courthouse. Kid was even wearing a shirt with the elementary school's name on it. His mom got out of the passenger side. Taco guy and I bonded over this craziness.
rails on roof
Installing two IronRidge rails on the roof of the house, to mount 1.2 kw of solar panels on. Got four flashfeet installed today, before my drill conked out.. recharging the drill on my old solar system.
The potentially hard part of that, besides sweating on a super hot roof, is hitting the beams when drilling into the roof, otherwise you get the fun of an extra hole in the roof to deal with. Luckily, I was able to remove vent caps, so see the beams, and hit them on the first try every time.
