It's been far too long since I've been able to grill (over two years). But now that we're in a house again, it's time for charcoal-fueled cooking.

I have a Santa Maria tri-tip in the fridge, which will go on this tomorrow, after I pick up some charcoal and some grilling tools.

I'll have a probe in the meat the whole time, so it shouldn't get too overdone...  Thanks!

Just a really big sun, I think.  Or maybe a recreation of the two-slit experiment...

I may have gone overboard. I wanted smaller notebooks so that I could keep them separate by subject/project/employee. Separate by employee since as a manager is like to keep all the notes from my 1:1's with each of my team members together, separated from the other team members.

And yes, after 5? Years of being a manager, it still feels weird to talk about that.

Lovely paper by Clairefontaine, which is wonderful for writing on with fountain pens.

Interesting design idea.

The interesting hurdle will be to see if the divots don't cause a spike in loading at that point, and how well they wear as a result.  But for low-load situations, these could be useful.
 
Instead of forcing balls apart with a cage or retainer, Coo Space puts small divots in the track the balls roll over. 
They just keep going and going and going and going

To a significant extent, indeed.
RSA President Amit Yoran wasn't passing out compliments in his opening keynote at last month's convention. But he says the response from both colleagues and competitors is that he said what needed to be said: The industry needs to move beyond perimeter defense.

From what I know it would seem so. The amount of infrastructure that is not covered by next gen firewalls is a little scary.

Nespresso has a limited-edition coffee out right now that I really liked (Monsoon Malabar). It turns out everyone else in Palo Alto liked it, too, as it was locally sold out. Luckily, it's still available online.

So now I have a big box of coffee headed my way.

Last fall I backed Breakthrough Photography's neutral density filters and polarizers.  My lovely 6-stop ND filter showed up last Friday, and I've been way too busy to go somewhere with water to play with it (since water shows off the long exposures the best).  And then I remembered the fountains at work.  And then it still took until today to remember to grab the camera bag.

So here are some utterly boring photos the questionable-looking fountains in the ponds at work (yes, the fountains are green...).  Anyway, the first shot is the "control", f/8 at 1/250 of a sec, about normal for these conditions (bright, lightly overcast, sky).

The following are when the ND filter lets the shutter stay open for 64x longer, and then me stopping down the lens to f/20 to get an even longer shutter time.

These are cropped and straightened, but color/contrast/etc. is straight out of the camera.  I wouldn't have needed to even crop/straighten if I'd remembered a tripod.

The first thing I noticed is how the as the water reflections blur, and the surface goes silvery, the shadows don't seem to be as dark.  I'm wondering what will happen to the water when the ND filter is paired with a polarizer

I think there's also a slight exposure difference (I was in aperture-priority mode, ISO 100, so not fully manual, which would be a better test).

The color saturation is just great.  I have some other NDs and they just aren't this neutral.  This is really exemplary performance.

Now to get out to someplace where I can play with some real water with waves and whatnot.

Department leadership and the Fraternal Order of Police are poor spokespersons for your average police officer. That doesn't mean you'll like what we have to say.

Introduction
Recovering from returning to the US after a year in Paris..   Due to a wonderful set of opportunities, I'm was able to live in Paris for a year with my wife and daughter.  It was a great adventure.

I like photography, cars, motorcycles, computers, acoustics/audio, and history.  I also find socioeconomic classes fascinating (and an interesting dichotomy from social classes).

Professionally, I connect lots of little things to big things (Internet of Things).

A note to commercial pages:  If you circle me, without me first establishing some sort of relationship (or communication) with you, I'm very likely to block you, and report you for unwanted commercial spam.
