Sam The Dog
My uncle's dog Sam has figured out the intercom/elevator correlations so he knows when to stand at the door and bark.

Saw this while walking home the other night.
Finally ARK's name is in lights! WELCOME DATACOMP

So not only has Google Groups not been showing anything I posted, it apparently no longer carries alt.test.
My last post to ARK was a test post. Can someone check to see if it is there?

Because of the on-going Baconalia, where one can get all sorts of extra-bacon-y meals or even a bacon ice cream sundae
, I of course wanted to go to Denny's, and needed to find one nearby. So I did a Google search for Denny's in my current location; one popped up on Google Maps with the address, phone number, and the note "manager is a shit bag".
Good to know!

I got a bunch of half naked men crawling up on my roof and for once the cops are not involved.

'Emperor's New School'
In the spirit of somewhat unconnected wackiness, one should watch 'Emperor's New School', the spin off from the David Spade movies. Basically 'ego maniac has to attend generic high school to keep his mansion and legions of followers'. Amusing bizarre stuff.

Whatever happened to him? Anyone ever Google his real name to stalk him? I just found E Teflon Piano on Facebook...

Just wanted to let those who might be interested know that ArkMOO has been moved to a new server and, as one side effect, you now have to use a different port to connect to it. The server should still be reachable at arkmoo.kontext-away.com but the port has changed to port 7766.
If you haven't ever been to ArkMOO and you want to check it out, or if you have but you don't remember how it works, the information at http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/gracexu/movements.html
is accurate (except as noted above ArkMOO is now at arkmoo.kontext-away.com port 7766).
If you have any questions, or if you encounter any problems, let me know.

I wackyparsed the title of a thread in some forum as "Gamera Helping Haiti".
How do we know he didn't cause the earthquake during one of his giant monster decisive battles?
Further SSC: instead of "earthquake", I started to write "earthlink". Introducing Gamera Does Tech Support: The Movie

I just saw someone label a post as an "Unreasponable Rant". I think this should spawn a new adjective: "unreasonipple".
You are all welcome to share this in casual conversation.

You know you'd watch 90 minutes of Nick Cage just cold jackin' bikes and punching women. Plus, BEES!
Also, we have yet to resolve the matter of how it got burned: Current Mood: NOT THE BEES!

NASA Comedy Central
If you caught the radio clip from the latest re-entry crew at NASA and heard the latest shuttle toilet hilarity, that was Dean's voice delivering the one liner.
In case you missed it, it went something like this:
The EECOM called with a couple of O2 messages saying that
they figured out that a valve in the WCS hadn't seated fully and that they
wanted the crew to toggle the switch on the WCS. Over the airwaves is heard
"Are you saying they need to jiggle the handle on the toilet" and
everyone was laughing in the control room.
(That was Dean delivering the line.)
CAPCOM worked on it for a while and called up "In regards to your Spec 66 O2 messages, we'd like you to toggle the switch on the WCS to see if we can get a minor leak to stop"
and then the crew came right back with what CAPCOM had worked so hard to
That really broke things up.
Two missions ago one of the crew members said, while preparing for de-orbit burn,
" I ain't falling for no banana in the tail pipe trick".

Bacon Bacon Bacon Gelato!
Some of the selections at La Divina Gelateria, Uptown New Orleans, on St. Patrick's Day.
The Guiness Beer gelato didn't surprise me, but the bacon gelato did.
