|shenley||:||Thanks for the update, Larry. Just spoke to Norm and he sounded in good spirits. He said life in the retirement village was very good. Like you said, he misses all the great RBR days (we all do). I've now got the phone number to his room so it will be easier for me to ring him in the future. He said he had to go because Bingo was on in a few minutes.|
|Jenolan||:||Norm said he is having a lot of problems with his sight, miss all of the old crew RBR was really something grand when it was rocking|
|shenley||:||Thanks, Larry. I was wondering how Norm was getting on in the aged-care facility. I will give him a phone call soon. He said it might be difficult getting through to him now. Not surprised he has retired from RBR scenarios. Pleased he is still OK. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Heard from Norm, no more RBR... I am still pondering paying (again) for the latest Trainz and writing Activities using the terrible rule based sessions|
|shenley||:||Nice to hear your updates, Larry. Hope the move hasn't been too much of a problem. Regards, Peter|
|Jenolan||:||Bought a Ryobi lawn mower (battery 18v) to do our tiny lawn, and a transfer pump to use the bath water on the garden|
|Jenolan||:||After more than a month of missing the farm, the worst thing drinking water, miss our clean fresh rain water tanks every day. And the morning kookaburras, maggies, even the wombat|
|Jenolan||:||Weather for West Bathurst (our Endolin) is now active|
|Jenolan||:||We have named our new house Endolin ... see if you can work out the reference. Disney movie, computer based, debug mode on.|
Just been told that 'erbie passed away on the 28th February very sad to hear that an old friend has gone to the big train station in the sky. Herbie was always a joy to talk to and could be relied on for a funny quip and lots of friendship.
We will miss you our good friend.
On Wednesday we had to make a trip into town to pick up my new iMac (old one fell off its stand) as we were traveling down our road noticed a large echidna. We usually see smallish ones but this one was huge about 40cm long, well ok huge for out here. Some pictures below, not all that great done with the iPhone.
Under the SoftLayer Catalyst program we have access to some nifty hardware, this is obviously for ChannelPace. But my sites are hosted on the ChannelPace hardware, so for the first time we are now hosted in Australia at the Melbourne SoftLayer data centre. You should notice it is quicker than when it was hosted at the KnownHost Dallas Texas centre.
Most of the move is complete, still setting up the background processing but getting closer.
