Back in the Saddle

It's almost 8:00 on Saturday morning. My wife is still asleep. I'm just hanging out, babysitting a pair of smoking pork butts. Since there's not much to do at 8:00 on a Saturday morning while one's wife is still sleeping, I figured now's a good time to catch up on the blogging I've put off for the last three months while I've been on the road.

To get the ball rolling, let's start with an easy one. The video below is from one of our very clever and talented Sun folks. Every year at SuperComputing, as the conference is closing down, he has a mini film festival at the Sun booth of all his videos. (If you're there on the last day, stop by for some quality entertainment.)

Lorinka the Fierce

While I was visiting Germany last December, I shot this video of a friend's dog guarding her ball. I think it's quite funny.

Ancient Wisdom

"We trained hard, but it seemed every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization."

From Petronii Arbitri Satyricon, 66 AD (Attributed to Gaius Petronus, a Roman General who later committed suicide)
