Gang of Four at the Paradise

[music | Throwing Muses - Soul Soldier, Live At The Middle East]

Here are some of my favorite photos from the fantastic Gang of Four show at the Paradise. We even got Hugo Burnham for a few songs! I know one of Natalie's cow-orkers had him as a professor in school in Boston, so we were glad he sat in.

Asus EEE Is Fired

I've spent some time with the Asus EEE 1006. It was one of those almost there, maybe if I tweak... situations, and I've given up wasting time tweaking.

English Beat @ Tupelo 12-15-2010

[music | DEVO - I'm A Potato]
I don't have time to write much tonight, but I wanted to post some pictures

Tonight we saw the English Beat for the second time at the same venue, Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry. I've got kind of mixed feelings on the venue, since it's a pretty chill atmosphere with a BYOB policy, but they had chairs, for a dancy fun band, again.

In any case the band was great and after a couple of songs the crowd really started getting into it, as much as we could with the chairs around. They're going to be doing a couple more local shows, one at another Tupelo location in White River Jct. VT, and then back at the Londonderry location for New Years, which I may go to, depending on whether friends go.

Musically they're still really tight and really interact well with the crowd. The best quote, after Dave polished off a container of coconut milk:

"They can make wine out of it. And it's a fruit, just like the tomato. 53 years and I still can't get the fucking hang of this planet..."

Here are some photos from the show, not that great, but I was back 11 rows, and was bouncing around, click them to view at Flickr:

Sphere of Inconvenience

So... As I was putting together my most recent post regarding IPv6 I got to thinking about how many computers I use every day. It started as I counted up how many things in my house use IP addresses. From here forward I will refer to anything that uses an IP address as a computer for simplicity (yes, that means that in this context my iPhone is a computer, as is my Tivo, and my Linksys wireless access point).

IPv6

There has been a lot of chatter on the CentOS list lately regarding the ups and downs of IPv6. It has not quite boiled down to a flame war yet, but now is a good time to start distilling down what everybody has had to say.

To start, what IS IPv6? Simply put, it is a newer implementation of IP addressing that allows for many more hosts, as we have been running out of IPv4 addresses and will come to the end shortly. In fact, it allows for more than 2^95 or 5x10^28 addresses per person alive on planet earth today. "Overkill!!!" you might exclaim. In the 70s, when IPv4 was designed, and there were less than 1000 hosts internetworked, you would have said the same thing about the mere 4 billion addresses allowed in that system. In an age where having your toaster internet accessible is not unheard of, you'd be surprised at how many you might use.

A week with the Asus EB1006

Just bought an Asus EB-1006, and wanted to post how it works rather than send one email to half a dozen folks. I got it working pretty well with XP for HD movies and MAME, here's what I did:

Infected Mushroom, Paradise Boston

Infected Mushroom just lied to my face, and made me walk out. I just paid $50 to watch people pretend to make music. It was insulting to the audience, and I can only hope they feel like complete frauds, though I doubt it.

Joe Buck Yourself - 4/14/2010

Tonight we got to see Joe Buck Yourself at the Brick House in Dover, NH. This show was the biggest coincidence ever. We first saw Joe Buck playing bass with Hank III at the Roxy, and it killed us, and cost me a toenail. I have been waiting to see him solo ever since.

The Goth Militia Is Rising!

This past weekend the feds conducted raids in three states targeting the Hutaree militia group. These guys are Christian survivalist extremists, "Preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive". They believe the Anti-Christ walks among us, that kind of thing. Nevermind that as I understand it, if the Anti-Christ is walking among us, that means the rapture has already happened, which means "You Lose".
