Your Photo Guide to Today's Outage...
At 4:00pm PDT today, somebody decided to plug their brand new $20,000 refridgerator sized Cisco Router into the power provided by our data center. Rather than turning on like a good giant router, this one decided to throw a giant fireball that burned the hand of the tech who plugged it in. The UPS, which keeps the power on when the city looses power, didn't like this one bit and threw it's breaker and took down several racks worth of servers. Photographica and XLAN were on one of those racks and we lost power for about an hour.
The tech is okay, but the router sadly didn't make it.
(a couple of these are from Cisco.com... I only wish I had one of my own to take a picture of...)
What's in a name?
I hope I don't have any trouble from these buccaneer people. I was named Bruce long before they were a football team. If I do though, my pirate sidekick and I are ready!Ahoy!
I do have other bird friends in the yard. Two of them are a pair of blue jays. The female is a real kick. She loves peanuts (non salted - in the shell please). She will sit on the phone line over the deck by the kitchen window and bounce up and down on the line to get my attention so I will come out to feed her. I stoop down and set the peanut on the top step of the deck and move my hand about 4" away and she will fly down to the ground, hop up the steps and grab the peanut. So far no luck on getting her to take it out of my hand but I think it will happen. Anyway... FEMALE JAY watching and waiting for her peanut.
Hey, Look Under There
In keeping with a reoccurring theme that started with Dirkbag and then moved onto Colbb and has been passed to Lilbit. I will now throw my....ehh.. Hat into the ring with my favorite piece of Clothing.

To a mystery man who shares my love of national parks and of photographing the great outdoors. I hope I can someday match the awesome landscapes you've posted here.
. . . and thanks for the nifty logo!
The most ignored sign in our parking lot, it not much different from anywhere else you go. I'd like to be able to kick some serious buttocks for this crime.
Our plant manager, Mr. KayN, has many friends. They take care of him.
I got my own parking spot this year. But I'm not sure what they mean by my sign.
Kitty Owner's Manual - Chapter Seven - Travel
Do not take this personally. You can take the fact she poops on your pillow as a personal insult though. In Chapter 11 - How to Punish a Cat, we will discuss how to handle this problem.
The story that came with this photo is that the person who did the art work retired at the end of the day. The vehicle was put in service for one week before anyone noticed.DESCRIPTION_HERE
They Grow Up So Fast
She has become somewhat unruly and I'm not sure I'm ready for the teenage years with the pre-teen years being so hectic. Between the talking back, crying constantly and snubbing me, I thought I had it bad. But her taste in accessories will send me to an early grave.
Please any help and advice will be appreciated.
Where I Work (cough) and What We Do
But the most important thing, of course, is safety.
(Kay, help me from getting fired for that last one!!)
