For the last few days, a Chinese balloon the size of three buses with a instrument package with solar panels dangling below it has been drifting over the continental United States and has made it's way from Montana to Missouri and is now hovering over western North Carolina. There seems to be a lot of anxiety surrounding this balloon that Beijing initially denied existed at all and then finally has admitted was their balloon but…

This morning, we woke up to a situation we've not experienced since Google Fibre was installed here at the Nerdery...an actual outage! That red "Alarm" light on the fibre jack was certainly a surprise after many months of rock solid connectivity without Spectrum's usual "we'll re-partition our network every fortnight" (that needed a cable modem and router reboot) or the more rare "we'll upload a brand new firmware on our side of the head-end and…

The following letter to my father was written several months ago whilst I was visiting with him at Arlington National Cemetery on a gorgeous August morning. There's something about that spot about half way down Section 76 that is peaceful and inspiring as I was reflecting on the past few days spent on walkabout in Washington DC and about to head toward the Outer Banks to collect the kids, Mistletoe, and likely a fair heap…

Are you flipping kidding me? I'm still trying to wrap my head round more classified documents being found where they ought not to be and in the possession of people who clearly should have known better! Apparently these documents were found in an office used by President Biden prior to his election when he was a member of a Washington think tank (now that's an oxymoron if I've ever heard one and having grown up…
