Allstate doesn't love us.

Our insurance company, Allstate, is going to cancel, nay, strike that, non-renew (I don't understand the difference but all the Allstate people insist that it is important without actually telling me why) our home owners policy unless we complete what I think is completely unnecessary electrical work. Full disclosure, I was working apprentice electrician in my mis-spent youth. But that is what it is. Allstate says jump in the lake, we jump in the lake. Or find another insurance company.

So brothers and sisters and distant cousins, I beseech thee. Can you recommend a good electrician? And more importantly, can you recommend an insurance company and/or an independent insurance agent that is willing to insure 100+ year old homes on Buffalo's west side?

Please and Thank you

Beefy Miracle

I upgraded the hex-core box to Fedora 17 (code name Beefy Miracle) using preupgrade with no problems.

Update 05/31/12: I'm getting a kernel panic when I shutdown/reboot, see for a fix.

Update 05/31/12 Sound is broken. No solution yet

Update 06/01/12 Sound working. A known bug was a PAM permission problem that could be fixed by running authconfig --updateall . I also upgraded to a 3.4x ccrma kernel So it could be either or both.

Do Laury

Yet another Polish art rock song with texts by some dead white guy named Czesław Miłosz. Despite being dead, white and a guy, Miłosz was a great poet.

I like the poem and the song. I love the video.

Your Gorilla Didn't Get Loose

I ran into (e:mrmike) at Weggies today. And it wasn't by the beer department. So ha! After listening to me whine about my job, he quoth "at least your gorilla didn't get loose."

Truer words were never spoken.

That being said. My Lobsters Gorilla.
