BlackBox Project

I put up a few of the Blackbox release-day photos at my website. IMHO, a great new breakthrough; putting datacenters next to power stations and eliminating the power transmission costs is actually a pretty big deal when deploying at massive scale.

On a related note, this site is running in an OpenSolaris zone, connected via gigabit ethernet to an OpenSolaris ZFS NFS file server, along side of solarisinternals.com and about a dozen other websites... ;-)

Chasing the Sanfrancisco Fog

Sometimes I think we're a little crazy, reviewing the amount of effort invested in a simple, nonsensical goal like this one: trying to capture the essence of the fog around Sanfrancisco...

Here you can see Joost Pronk waiting patiently for the fog to lower and reveal the perfect image...

After getting sunburned, we left with no such pictures. We were entertained for quite some time by interesting implementations of chaos theory at work:

So this week's pictures are two of the city, but not actually what we set out to get:

This week's picture

Phil Harman and I took a quick trip to Yosemite earlier this year, and stumbled across this scene with the sun setting over the windmills at Altamont Pass, just east of the bay area.

Photo of the week

It's about time I added something to that "Photography" category...

I was in SanFrancisco early one morning last week, and snapped this scene which I found interesting.
