Coding is what defines me, especially when it doesn't… also.

Jenolan Caves

This is not Jenolan Caves, we use the Jenolan name because we love the Jenolan, Abercrombie, Wombeyan, & Yarrangobilly caves.

    Lucy RIP

    •  Jenolan

      We lost our lovely Lucy today, she took a turn on Sunday night and it works out that she had a brain tumor, nothing for us to do but say goodbye. Got one more cuddle before she went away to go play with our other lost friends.

      Miss you lots

      Helen was sixty today so I took her out to the Mayfield Gardens we had lunch and a walk around the public part of the gardens, the rest is only open on special days. It was quite pleasant and we wondered how they manage to maintain such a large garden (about 120ha) when we have enough trouble with our small vegetable plot.

      No pictures of food, but lunch was pleasant, a few from our ramble.

      Happy birthday Helen

    Fix it!

    •  Jenolan

      This is not a whinge session, just an update on living in the bush.

      The storms that arrived during February were quite something, next door a lightning strike took out their transformer. Multiple days we were without power, the phone was off more than it was on and is still faulty.

      Power wise, I bought a new generator big beastie a few months ago as Edison's has a special 50% off then PayPal offered 20% off the price so I stumped up the $1,000 odd so that we had enough grunt to keep the fridge and freezers going. Without that we would have lost all of our farm meat, kill a sheep style. So saved there, also we had one that hit really close, it took everything out and also fried the TV system antenna, booster, power, cabling was all kablooied changed all that and still no boob tube so had to get the guy to come out, easy with his magical level detector the new antenna needed to be pointed a bit differently than the old one.

      The weather station also lost its mind and at the same time my computer and the server had a joint drop of the guts ... most of my coding stuff was scrambled, was able to recover the program code itself but the server data was not recoverable, oh well that's what happens with electronics from time to time.

      Building a new server, bought an old refurbished HP Z400 workstation, removed the HDD and just installed two SSD drives for it to replace the old Dell server that was not worth fixing, it will do the weather station and also run the local development web stuff I still like to tinker with from time to time.

      Anyway summer is almost done, winter is coming.

    Norm Retirement

    •  Jenolan

      Norm has just sent me a message about moving into a retirement village and that LOC56 which will be available when tested by Puffing Billy will probably be the last of the RBR scenarios. Thanks for keeping RBR alive for so long Norm, please don't just disappear.

      So Trainz/RBR is officially over ... it was fun back in the day, be good!

    TRS2019 --- No more

    •  Jenolan

      Well another iteration of Trainz, to download you need 30 gigabytes of download capability (on SkyMuster sure) and to have access to the content it is US$15 a month.Sorry not me, I wasted money buying a WinDoze laptop for T:ANE to try and build an Activity system as the MacOS version doesn't have TrainzUtil to build stuff and it was just not fun.

      So officially, well can't be no offishyal RBR is long dead, I will have nothing further at all to do with Trainz. Norm was talking about another TRS2004 Activity and I will make that available but simply it is all just too much fluff now with no real intent for driving. It is not a simulator it is just a glorified graphics mash.

      Hope everyone is well, be good!
