This is the map of wireless APs I was first to discover in the wigle.net database. Note that this is not necessarily areas I have travelled in — rather, it represents intersections between where possibly mobile (as in, cell phone or vehicle integrated hotspots) APs and my travels have intersected. As other wigle users log later locations of these APs, the database will update to reflect where they’re actually from.. or where they’re traveling. That’s why I show up as missing the rains down in Africa, for instance.
Or not! I don’t think much is getting through this bad boy. This is a surge protector supplied by Nautel for installation with their transmitters. It’s glorious.
There are some wild tales to be told here, but that will come after I’m done washing my Intraplex HD Link*.
* Not actually advisable, at least not while powered up.

When the computing world finally drops Java, can we call that the Jexit?

The night before last, I had a weird nightmare that the PTek transmitters I have at work right now kept ejecting vital components out the back vents.
Last night I had a dream where what I remember of it was petting a cat and small dog who both had beautiful Bengal cat markings. They both fell asleep all blissfully happy. Later I learned that they shared the role of CEO of some enormous corporation and their secretary mailed me a thank you note that was packed along with a clay tile they’d both left me paw prints in.
Looking to see what the first steps are in restoring our stations to service….
Watch that first step.
We were all kinda amazed with this smoke-spewing hole. It’s the root system of a pine tree that started burning underground. It’s likely that this will eventually cause the road to cave in a bit and require filling/excavation.
Newly remodeled store, just… nauseatingly confusing layout. Maybe all the fresh carpet adhesive smell is what’s nauseating though. Oh yes, it’s CARPETED, which will guarantee it reeks of filthy carpet after a few months, like a CVS store does.

Slotting fees are nothing new in retail. A company must essentially pay rent to a chain store in many cases to get their product on the shelf, and must pay more for certain features such as end cap displays, shelving at eye level, not having the store’s own generic of the product displayed next to it— in this case certain brands of kitchen products paid to not be plunged into DARKNESS. My visual estimate says 2 f/stops down when you go back to the wall. Amazing.
And this isn’t even one of the layouts with the new “River” concept, which is a curvy path from the entrance that will parade shoppers past promoted items…
Funny how this layout in particular reminds me of the one that took Sears to its grave. 😉
