Flickr

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Well as it says it is a test post which means that My accounts are now hooked together so you will get to see some pics right here on the blog instead of me having to link to them. Pretty cool huh? well moderately cool anyway.

Google the ISP with 2^96 IPv6 addresses

Well Maybe it is time to get back to some tech info on this site, after all that is what its original intent was. I found this through digg. It may prove why Google has been buying up tons of Dark Fiber all around the place. Only time will tell.

Google has 79 billion billion billion IPv6 addresses, is buying up massive amounts of dark fiber, and building a massive data center. Just what is Google up to?

I love the sound of the rain in the trees. I am just sitting here on the couch surfing the web in the pouring down rain. It is soo cool to look out the window and realize that for the first time in my 25 yrs that these are our trees. Not our landlords, not my parents, Precia and Me, our trees. The sound is very soothing, more so than staring at a computer screen but what else is a geek like me going to do at 8:00 on a Thursday night.

Joe came over tonight so we had brats, we were going to cook them on the grill but then it started pouring down rain, and I didn't really want to roll out the awning as it was getting windy too. So we came back inside and cooked the on the Foreman grill, just as good but not near as fun.

We chatted a bit about life in general watched some movie trailers. It was fun. Now I am just waiting for Precia, she should be home soon, she had to play at Graduation today for some kids that will be singing. I hope she is having a good time. Until then, more surfing.

Well this is my last day here in Denver, I am kinda sad to leave as this is a beautiful city, but at the same time I am excited to go home and see my lovely wife. We, My Boss and I, have a morning of conferences then we catch a plane to Detroit. That aught to be fun. I picked up a set of Noise canceling headphones for the plane so we will see how those work.

It is just about time for some breakfast and check out. So I must be off.

I am in Denver this week, check out my flickr page for some pics. I am attending the 14th Annual IUG conference for Innovative Interfaces, this is the company that provides the software that runs the library where I work. While here I have heard a lot of talk about bringing the library into the Web 2.0 setting and have found most of it very interesting.

There are a ton of great sources and good people behind this push in the IUG, it has renewed my interest in the web and development. So in that vein I am going to try again at keeping this blog rolling with a post at a bare minimum once per week. In fact I am going to schedule it into my calendar. I may even try to get a domain for it so that will be some more incentive for me to update regularly.
