    What is the timing on that? The black circle is getting uncomfortably close to me and I will be driving back home Sunday, unless it is looking to ominous and I need to cancel the trip

    Have you met my firstborn? Maybe not sacrifice, but maybe we can trade?

    Ordinarily I would be glad to see that for Roanoke, but if that holds I will have to cancel travel plans. I-81 is not good in good weather, it becomes a parking lot in that kind of snow

    Come on, you know us folks from the south can't drive in an inch of snow, you want us to try and drive in what you are getting?

    So you're saying he is about as useless as a pile of tick turds?

    I am in SW Va, where a lot of snow is not the concern, but the potential for flash freeze has been raised. Is this still something to be concerned with in this area, and if so what is the timing? I am trying to decide if I will make a road trip this weekend and risk driving back into that Sunday.

    MySQL System Crash

    Its gremlins. I was a computer geek way back before windows when batch files were king, then somehow ended up in med school and got away from that. But I had a few programming jobs and managed some databases before every business had an IT department, and when we had those mystery crashes, I blamed it on gremlins. There was a scene in the movie Gremlins, an old drunk with a tractor is all I remember, while downing his tonic he rambled about gremlins or ghosts in the machines. Thats what causes those mystery crashes, gremlins. I remember sitting in an assembler language class, thinking how many layers beyond assembler language was something like COBOL or Fortran. However many layers that was, there are exponentially more layers between the simplest machine language to whatever the progamming platform is now. Now we have those gremlins gone bad, scrambling a registry value here or there, and watching it rise up through the platforms, and growing exponentially until it succeeds in crashing something. Or maybe you just f#%ked up.

    Thanks for the work getting things going. No wonder, I leave my pc for thirty minutes and return with over 75 new replies, things are busy

    that satellite image is quite impressive. But, it seems satellite imaging of even the most benign things can be quite fascinating.
