Posting suddenly got very sporadic since I’ve been so busy. Going to work on getting it back to normal real soon.
Under Pad 39A and 39B at Kennedy Space Center NASA built a complex of tunnels and bunkers for in case the Saturn V rocket that would bring Apollo astronauts to the moon exploded. Obviously the rooms were never used. They are rarely seen. This is an awesome gallery of photos taken from inside the rubber room.
The Big Bang Theory did a surprise flash mob. Some more video, apparently taken by someone in the audience can be found here. The real gem of the whole thing is in the background: Sheldon never breaks out of character. Dr. Sheldon Cooper FTW indeed.

Lots of little notes on today’s announcements…
This blog is now up and running on a newer faster server. I’ve spent a fair amount of time over the past week moving sites and syncing databases as I transition things over. Still some loose ends, but I’m mostly there.
Back to regular blogging tomorrow.
This blog has been quiet for a longer period than normal while I’m working on some interesting projects of various scopes. More to be revealed eventually. I don’t anticipate this silence lasting too much longer.
As everyone knows, today is Fetivus. So happy Festivus.
For those who need some background, they can read my previous post from 2006.
Hopefully we can get bug 394616 fixed so Firefox doesn’t mark Festivus as a misspelled word. It’s getting annoying (I know I can add the word, but I periodically clean things up and that goes away). That said, a spell checker’s ability to correct my amazingly wrong spelling of Hanukkah is amazing. No matter how badly I misspell it, and I can assure you I do a great job of it, Firefox always knows what I want. If you haven’t tried that before, give it a go. Someone told me a long time ago Hanukkah is one of the best words to test the abilities of a spell checker with. This is true either because spell spell checkers require skill to fix it, or because it’s so easy to misspell. Next time you need to review spell checkers, this is a test you can use. you’re welcome.
While I’m on the topic of holidays, here’s a Christmas message from a monkey as the queen typically does. It’s pretty well done for a YouTube video.
A few days ago I mentioned I was having some DNS issues. I’m pretty sure they are resolved as the last few days I haven’t seen anything odd.
It seems the primary nameserver did not bump the SOA when it updated. As a result one of the other DNS servers was out of sync. Why only one? I doubt I’ll ever discover why.
Anyway, it seems to be fixed. If anyone notices an issue, let me know.
There’s some DNS funny business going on with this blog the past several days. I’m still trying to figure out exactly where the problem is. DNS has always been one of my least favorite things to deal with.
This and other sites of mine will experience a few outages this weekend as the servers move to a new temporary data center.
Update: Server is snug in it’s new home. Will be moving again to a permanent new data center.
