8/17    I just learned that they sell hover mowers in the UK.  A lawn mower
        that hovers like a hovercraft.  Weird. (See Flymo Hover Mower)
        \_ Can it work?  If a mower keeps blowing air download to stay alift
           in the air, I'd think the downdraft would push the grass onto the
           ground and make it hard to be cut.
           \_ I wondered the same thing.  I was only able to find one review
              of the mower, (it was positive, but I didn't really find it
              trustworthy.) but Flymo still sells the things, so somebody
              must be buying them.
           \_ A lot of mowers have weights to keep the grass down and give
              it a better cut. Greens mowers do this.

8/14    weird, Zone Alarm free seems to notice when my linux machines
        apt-get upgrade (specifically i get popups from my zafree box on
        my lan that says 'we have prevented <ip for lin box> from connecting
        to (real server) ).  Weird.  I guess ZAF is in
        promisc mode?

8/17    After Civil War reenactment, there is now Vietnam Way reenactment!
        \_ Unbelievable! Where are they going to get all the "gooks"?
           Also I'm really surprised that of all the war reenactments,
           there hasn't been a nut case with loaded munition shooting
           at people.... or has there?

8/17    We are hiring a Director of Network Engineering, if you know
        of any good candidates, send them my way. -ausman
        \_ Job description?
              and click on the appropriate job. We are also looking for a
              MySQL DBA Director, but they are much harder to find.
        \_ Why don't YOU apply for it ausman?
           \_ I am already a Director of Operations, this would not be a
              promotion for me. Plus, I am not really qualified.
