There are some really funny bits buried in the tedium of it all. A great overheard conversation from guys in the seat behind about greek yogurt and spoons and the difficulty of balancing creative expression with making money.

But the best part is the stretches where nothing happens. The mannequin hand is fumbling with the seat back latch tab, flipping it back and forth aimlessly, for 20 minutes. The only available freedom of movement. BTDT.

You find yourself desperately trying to find a distraction. The film runs in the background, impinging on your awareness just enough that you can't entirely concentrate on anything.

Received email message that attempted to exploit shellshock bug. Manually joined the attacker's CNC irc channel, and it seems at least 2 mail servers were actually successfully exploited this way.

I remember compiling minix on one of these! Only for fun, as I was using linux on pentiums already at the time.

Actually, the LHC has a safety feature that involves diverting the beam at a rock formation under a mountain if they need to dump it in an emergency. It is a death ray at that point; just one carefully aimed.

I was amused during our tour of CERN when someone had really specific questions about the engineering of that, down to the ms.

I run unstable on most of my servers, with automatic daily upgrades. Caution? What's that? :)

A partially shaven yak is a sad yak. Unless you're going for the poodle yak look.

Sneedville is a true one horse town, in fact it's not unusual to pass a youth riding a horse, often bareback, in the road here.

Sometimes it feels a lot like the wild west buried in the middle of the eastern Appalachians.

cable car. people. 10 minutes. repeat

I've been struggling for an hour or some timeless instant to say something about the film Manakamana. And that's what the film is about to me: Our perception of time, the way it varies from the constant now of fresh discovery, to repititon's slow tedium, to a racing familiarity where the ice cream seems to melt too fast.

Or just pretty views and interesting people on a cable car. Either way, worth a watch if you can.
