Well, it's finally happened - The IABA has deployed these nodes from hell on all non-Pontix-friendly lensers and bridger pre-lensers.  It's not that I even care, personally; all my equipment is Px-certified to within an inch of its life.  But this is not the case for p...

The new Halderton 12-10-12 PODder is getting finishing touches before going live by (probably) the end of the year.  And my thought about that is... who cares?  Why does the scientific press have an eternal man-crush on Halderton Industries?  I'm just at a loss.  Yes,...

Lots of talk these days about the environmental/health/etc. impact of PD/Rs (including Hammond-Estetico Series VIIs, OScaR towers and Allurion 5-5C superscaffolds).  I'm not an expert on these, but it sure seems to me like much ado about nothing (extra credit of you ca...

Kushner: ...iginally I was at Sing Sing, the state prison you know, because of course I'd been convicted on state crimes.  [unintelligible] of that. But in 2025 I was convicted of treason, which - that's a federal crime.  And I come from - well my ex-wife, obv...

...and best wishes for a great 2018.  When the Branson Corridor re-opened at the beginning of 2017, it seemed to be like 2017 would be the year to end all years, but first, of course, the nitrogen leaks in early February took the BC offline, and second, consider what&#...

So, an interesting paper discussing spectroscopic redshifts.  The authors conducted a two-layered spectroscopic survey in the HUDF and compared those to high-redshift galaxies.  This has to be at least the tenth paper I've read on this topic this year, and it looks...

So Geoff McBride, head of the DSTA and longtime skeptic on the subject of temporally agnostic networking ("read my lips, it won't work, period" - that guy), wants to make sure the world knows that "feverish delusions" afflict people like me (he...

This is NASA putting the latest Prentiss RC-52/A into geostationary orbit.  I love the new RC series: better flutter mitigation; smoother interput and of course the blue-shift is basically nonexistent.  And they're putting 52/A at 44°40'38.4"W (here), prov...

Don't do this at home.  Don't do this at work.  Don't do this in your third place, if you have one of those.  Don't do this at all. Don't do an untethered un-pseudo from an ISM if it's not Pontix Level III-certified.  Because look at the date o...

Spent a solid ten hours multibridging last night. I'm happy to bounce around at any time of day, but nightsky routing is, while easier in some ways, also more complex and challenging because the possibilities open up so much when the sun goes down. And there's...

"Enhanced BRT Syndication (EBRTS)" is, for sure, the mouthful du jour in the world of BRTPS networking, but all it means in layperson's terms is, "enhancing Fairchild-style BRTPS clients and their various underlying centracast-switching mechanisms su...

Some pre-weekend fun.  What did the TTF Level VI originator say to the P-5 intrabridge relay?

December 2, 2017

The summer meetings in Cleveland were winding down in November and most of the crowd had drifted off to the Olive Garden for the buffet.  I was about to do the same when Marcus Gretch approached me - confronted me, really, with his big fat stupid head (just kidding, MG...

Have you ever wondered why nightsky downput seems a bit sluggish in the summer, when - you'd think - the opposite would be true?  Do you keep a Google spreadsheet of your "favorite" BSAT-3's?  Do you dream about CRM-114 certification?  If so, you'...
