    My fight with liver failure has ended...

    (I know I haven't been active on the forums for years now, but as time goes by and one loses touch with people, I wanted to post this here as well. Please excuse the consumption of electrons) After a very trying couple of months (upon the three years of battle we've waged) Tami Levin and I...

    We've lost a Finn. R.I.P. Thujalvi/Jussi Kontusalmi

    Sad news, indeed. He may be gone, but shall not be forgotten. Steve

    The Israel / Palestine mire (again)

    And this is anti-Semitism in a nutshell. Denying the legitimacy of the Jews to peacefully return to the land they were forcefully driven from three thousand years ago in favor of the right of those who fled their homes during their process of waging war upon the Jews. Me, I'm glad people are...

    Random Thoughts (Political Edition)

    Or more accurately, when even the French agree that the proposed "deal" was nothing more than a desperate attempt by the Obama administration to diffuse the rising tide against the unmitigated dishonesty of "if you like your health plan you can keep it" you know the deal was a complete farce.

    Entry level sysadmin/NOC positions in Cheyenne, WY

    No, this is for Echostar. We supply the infrastructure for DISH network. One advantage we have relative to Microsoft in this case is that we have a full-fledged engineering and operations team here for both IP and Broadcast, so there's a ton of room to grow a career, whereas Microsoft is just...

    Entry level sysadmin/NOC positions in Cheyenne, WY

    I know there's not a lot of folks on the Front Range, but I figured I would post this anyway. I'm looking to hire entry level system administrators (who will start off monitoring systems in our Network Operations Center). The more admin stuff you know, the better, but a willingness to learn is...

    The Aviation Thread [Contains Lots of Awesome Pictures]

    Hate to be a day late and a dollar short... but what exactly IS the max crosswind component a Bonanza is certified for? You can compensate with some speed, but ultimately, I suspect 25 gusting 35 placed you into the realm of test pilot. :) Steve

    The Aviation Thread [Contains Lots of Awesome Pictures]

    Convair 990's were super-fast if you didn't care that your range wouldn't allow you to fly 2,500 miles LAX-JFK. :) If Convair hadn't been stuck with the rear-fan engine from GE they might have hit the target of being the fastest transcontinental airliner. Speaking of DC-9 hard landings, I...

    Palestinian statehood, to early, or about time?

    All this overlooks some very significant issues and realities. The PA has twice been offered 95% of what it wants, in 2000 and again in 2008. Both times they walked away from the table and launched more attacks on Israeli civilians. Not military targets, not people attacking them, but...
