A Couple of Days Late But Worth The Wait!

Insane Storm Hits Brisbane

There Is Always Something!

While working on the curtains in the Theater Room I headed over to the stack because I heard a strange sound. "Tick, tick, tick, tick..." At first I thought it was one of the pieces of equipment. As I moved my ear from component to component I was hit in the face with a cold wind coming from BEHIND the stack!

Needless to say, that's not supposed to happen.

It soon became apparent that the access door from inside the attic had not been closed. That meant that the closet containing all of the electronics was open to the attic (and the outside) via a hole large enough that man could fit through.

This is the door that was unfortunately not closed all the way.  Once I got here I heard the ticking sound!  Since the door was not closed properly it was rattling every time the wind blew.  The insulation was left hanging open and half the pieces lay strewn around the door.

Since I was there I crawled inside the access space and took a few photos.  Having solved two problems I put everything back the way it WAS originally and remind myself to ALWAYS do a double check after having work done.

Blackout Curtains Are Complete

Theater Room Curtains Are Getting An Update

After 8 years of punishing Idaho sunshine it is time to replace the blackout backing to the Theater Room curtains.

The curtains are pretty light after taking off the blackout portion.

Can you guess where the sunshine is?

Things IT People Never Say

A Bit Low

This may be the coolest, most futuristic bomber ever built

While the Saab 35 Draken may be the coolest, most futuristic combat jet ever made, when it comes to bombers that title goes to the XB-70 Valkyrie, a gigantic supersonic strategic nuclear bomber that never entered service. Seriously, when I say gigantic I really mean it. This thing is unbelievable!
