Who I voted for:

These two won, a tie, and they went and danced on a pole together afterwards.

I tried to wipe the lens of the camera phone off, but it must have still been a little dirty.

Politics

Well I normally hate talking about politics on estrip, but this one is too funny:

An elephant with a 'wide stance' in Minneapolis. Nice. (This is the actual GOP logo for their convention)

Backup Hard Drives

OK, so this is getting ridiculous.

I have one external backup drive for my laptop, one for (e:james)' desktop, and now two more on the way to attach to the network for photo storage (100+gb so far). No more room on my laptop for them all.

I'm going to need to buy a house soon just to install a datacenter in the basement, and I don't think we'll need to worry about the house being cold this winter with all these electronics going. We have like four 8-outlet power strips in room with our computers.

Or maybe just get one of these...

Tooling

I was so frustrated at work today. I tried to use version control software again but it kept failing with weird errors. I tried Subversion and Git. I've tried both of them at RPCI before but had weird errors. Turns out it's because they can't work on windows network shares. I wish that I knew that ahead of time, I've wasted so much effort reinstalling and tweaking software today and the other times I've tried to set it up. They just can't be used over the network and there's nothing I can do about that. I mean, clearly they are networkable tools, but the 'local copy' can't be on a remote network share due to file locking. The remote copy can be anywhere of course.

Oh well tomorrow is another day.

Children's Hospital Expansion

Read about the plans here for expanding Children's hospital:

(I'm all over Buffalo Rising today apparently)

Doesn't look too bad - a new outpatient center on Hodge next to JJ's, and the drugstore on Utica is being knocked down for more parking.

The neighborhood did really fight to keep the hospital in the area (instead of moving down to the medical campus) and so the expansion is sort of a necessary thing to keep them there.

I didn't know the hospital had turned around so much in the mean time.

Photo Meetup

Hey - late notice, I know.

But if anyone wants to come and meet with my photography group at 2pm at Spot Coffee (Delaware and Chippewa) today, we'd be happy to see you!

Probably around 10 people coming so far, amateurs and professionals, all kinds - don't worry about if you'll fit in. (e:James) will be there too!

I meant to post this yesterday. Dammit.
