Do Not Call

those of you that have cell phones may want to sign up your number on the do not call registry ( last night i got a "you have won!" call on my cell phone. i didn't realize the telemarketers were getting deprate enough to try cell phones now. they also tried the lab phone at work last week. the most annoying part of the call was that it was an automated message and you were supposed to call back a number for information. lame! if you are going to waste my time at least give me the opportunity to immediately waste yours.

Awesome storm

check out this site (you may have to create a log in) for info on the huge windstorm that hit us Tuesday night. It was awesome! It got eerily dark around 8:00pm, and then the wind came along, and blew everything around. Trees fell over, lost limbs, broke in half, etc. One that was split (two tops) broke off and landed up our little road. On the way to work Wednesday morning, we saw remains of trees that had fallen on the main roads, blocking them. Our power was off from 8 something until 4:00am.

Click here for pictures on the windstorm.

Makes me glad our landlord had 7 trees around our place cut down just a few weeks ago. I have no doubt that at least 2 of them would have landed on our house had they still been standing.

MAC address's

I found the list of MAC address ranges assigned to manufactures. this is a unique prefix in the MAC system that designates the manufacure. I was glad to see my manufacture was legit and was listed

apple = intel

yesterday apple announced that they are switching to intel chips. yup that's right. check out the press release here and the commentary on cnet here.

pretty interesting. i think one of the most interesting things is the last part of the cnet article that says that some people will run windows on a mac, but os x and jaguar will always be run on a mac. seems like they are excluding some people that may concievably want to run a unix based os but don't want a mac.

so kev, tell us how the house hunt is going! after the cruise we were pretty sure you guys were serious about getting into something with 4 walls and a roof that you can beat up and call your own (just don't spill oil on the ground or the EPA can take it from you).

I hope you find something good! give us the MLS links to your current options and the lot o' us on nerdy tales will help you decide!
