Beatiful time-lapse of nature and speed climbing

I highly recommend watching this video in full-screen to really appreciate it. The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo. This one is just plain crazy, Ueli Steck solo-climbs The Eiger in Switzerland in 2h 47m! Here’s a link to an article about the ascent: Speed climbing Eiger

Summer Fun

We have been busy, or at least mostly Kerry has been busy, as far as vacations go. Pictures have been uploaded to the photo gallery. In May we went to Zion National Park before it go too hot down there. That was a lot of fun, though maybe just about 1/2 a day too short. [...]

Summer pictures update

I have recently posted up to the photo gallery a number of albums worth of pictures for some of the summer activities we have been up to in the last 6 weeks or so. At the start of July Kerry’s family came out for the 4th and the Provo Freedom Festival (including the Stadium of [...]

Take a hike

I couldn’t take it anymore, I had to get outside. After a long week in Dallas working at the data center (until Sunday) and it being a holiday week, I had had enough of living in the environment-controlled world of corporate buildings, I needed to breath some fresh air and deal with the heat that [...]

Moab Trip

Kerry and I just got back from an awesome (though short) vacation down to Moab, UT. What an amazing place, I can’t get enough of that red rock and sandstone formations.

Photo Gallery Update

I wasn’t a huge fan of the old photo gallery site but hadn’t found anything worth replacing it with. That is until a few weeks ago. The new photo gallery is an open-source project called Plogger. It is a lot cleaner than Coppermine while still quite robust, powerful, and much more customizable.

A320 attempting to land in a crazy crosswind

Wow… wow. I think the cockpit is going to need some paper towels to clean things up in there after this landing attempt. I can only imagine that their relief at not being smeared all over the tarmac is only tempered by the fact that they need to circle around and try again. Maybe they [...]

Christmas Pictures 2007

I have uploaded and organized a picture summary of our Christmas 2007 vacation to the east coast. Kerry was able to change her flight to head to Connecticut for a few days for her Grandfather’s funeral and then she took a train to meet me in Baltimore where we spent the rest of our vacation [...]

Awesome Zombie License Plate

So I was on my way back to work after lunch when I got a chuckle out of the license plate on the car ahead of me. Normally I think personalized license plates (the government/DMV term for them, I kid you not: Vanity Plates) are stupid, immature, or otherwise lame, this one I truly like:
