Gun Control

Let's get some good ole barnson.org discussion going! Let's discuss gun control. I know Matt & Ben have strong, differing views on this, so we should be able to get some good discourse going....

My views are that I agree that in a perfect world. they're be no reason for guns, guns are primarily used to kill people, and we should get rid of guns. If you want to hunt, use a bow and arrow or muzzle-loader and give the prey a chance.

NY Times Editorial - Reasons for the Deficit

Ben posted an interesting link on Facebook to a NY Times editorial piece: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/24/opinion/sunday/24sun4.html?_r=1&ref=to...

Basically, roughly 60% of the deficit from 2001 on was caused by Bush's tax cuts and the wars in Afghanistan/Iraq. The rest is the stimulus, TARP, medicare-drug relief, and non-defense discretionary spending.

Clueles IT People

So I have a guy who's the IT resource in our DC office. That office has a manager who's bristling at our deployment of Sharepoint, but it's also has basic internet connectivity issues that the ISP, the LEC, and we've gone around and around on.

The Return Of His Rhymeness

It's been too long since I've been too loud
Since I've showed you how to rock the crowd
Movin' the masses with my lyrical wordplay
Wasting your day setting your iPod to replay
My songs over and over and over some more
I invade your ears like you're an aural whore
My name is Weed, the microphone's my bitch
Never smoked up but the names's no glitch

Dell firmware update broke my MD3000i...kind of

So Dell contacted us a few weeks back and told us they would love to remote into our MD3000i Storage Array (hereby referring to as the "SAN") and update its firmware.

Sure, we told Dell. Love to have ya!

So some scheduling took place, and emails were sent notifying of downtimes, and backups were made, and they day came and Dell updated our firmware.

iPhone 3G

So the Wife o'Weed has received an iPhone 3G. I'm sure I'll answer this question as I play with it, but why would I need to jailbreak it? What apps or features would I need that Apple doesn't allow?

Any advice or recommendations are welcome

So I'm doing laundry this weekend, and I'm washing to whites. I grab the Clorox bleach and put it in. While this may be the 100th or 1000th time I've done this, for some reason I notice the "kills 99.9% of known germs" on the label.

In Case You Missed It

This song is over 2 years old, but I wonder how many of you saw the video. I keep watching it every so often just because of its wonderful homage to Spinal Tap. It's hilarious.

For today's Blast From The Past, I give you the video to Korn's Twisted Transistor.

Uh-Oh For VMWare

So I had to shut down one of my ESX 3.5 virtual machines today, to remove a virtual NIC that wasn't necessary anymore. When I went to start it up, I get an internal error. So I look in the logs, and see that ESX is claiming my license has expired. Well, it hasn't, so off to the VMWare site I go.
