A young college couple sat down in the dunkin i was in working on various remote projects.  Listening to their interaction was depressing.  The dude was acting like a whipped pulpy and the female he was with was taking great joy in denigrating him and not only insulting him but also using the fbomb towards… Read more

Quantas flight 72 nearly crashed after one of it’s sensing computers got inconsistent data from it AOA(angle of attack) sensors.  It seems that AOA sensors also cause a freekout of the MCAS software system aboard the 737 MAX series.  The reason the MAX has MCAS is the engines.  The engines on the MAX 737 are… Read more

the world grounds the 737 max aircraft, the faa doubled down to leave them flying so trump forces groundings.

The 787 was grounded after battery fires and there were no fatalities.  While I think the rest of the world grounding or denying airspace to the 737 MAX series is partially anti-Trump,  I also think it is partially because for whatever reason two of these brand new jets have crashed within 5 months of each… Read more

Is there a problem with the new 737-8MAX MCAS automation?

March 10, 2019 Technology 0

Two new 737-8MAX aircraft crashing within 8 months of each other.  I have been warning folks closest to me about the horrid quality of software these days.  Frankly even if i could fly right now I wouldn’t.  Self-driving cars?  No way.  My favorite operating systems(Linux and BSD) are not immune from poor coding.  It’s everywhere. … Read more

HOw much pain in moving to a single FreeNAS setup?

Not that much actually.  I looked around here and realized i now only have two machines utilizing a 12/core 24 thread monster server.  Because my FreeNAS is unix based like my Linux webservers I do not need to run a linux vm at all.  I have my firewall setup to only allow SSH connections from… Read more

Recycling was always broken…the greens are just now figuring out exactly how.

March 7, 2019 Environment 0

Recycling was flawed to begin with.  it can be done but not for the pricing it was at.  Why?  the recycling companies relied on a single point of failure….in this case…China.  We shipped most of our recycling overseas to get processed and used over there…most of this stuff never made it back over here…we were… Read more
