I just got the most involved phishing scam phone call I've received to date.

Someone from "Legal Processing" said this was a courtesy call to inform me a federal arrest warrant would be served on me tomorrow out of "Ford Bend County" on charges of bank fraud. They gave me a phone number, 215-358-4538, for "State Arbitration and Law", supposedly a law firm, that will work with me to clear up any and all legal liability I might have on this so-called warrant.

Yeah. Right.

Hmmm. My AMD-based server at home coughed this up in the logs this morning:

Dec 31 08:19:55 kodiak kernel: [Hardware Error]: MC4 Error (node 0): L3 cache tag error.
Dec 31 08:19:55 kodiak kernel: [Hardware Error]: Error Status: Corrected error, no action required.
Dec 31 08:19:55 kodiak kernel: [Hardware Error]: CPU:0 (15:2:0) MC4_STATUS[-|CE|MiscV|-|AddrV|-|Poison|CECC]: 0x9c11c8f0001d018b
Dec 31 08:19:55 kodiak kernel: [Hardware Error]: MC4_ADDR: 0x000000000100a080
Dec 31 08:19:55 kodiak kernel: [Hardware Error]: cache level: L3/GEN, tx: GEN, mem-tx: SNP

Seems like an L3 cache error of some sort. No evidence of any other problems in the logs. Wonder if a cosmic ray got it. :-)

no action required -- these are not the droids you are looking for.

Steps: 4,111.  Way down, but expected since I was traveling home from the conference. Got up, packed, checked out, went back to Hands-On Labs and completed three more steps towards the Solutions Architect – Associate badge. :-)  Went back to my hotel,…

My first Google Hangouts spam.  Blah.  Thought I recognized the name, but nope.

Steps:  15,704 or about 7.68 miles assuming an average stride length of 31 inches.  That’s far longer than I’ve walked in a long time!  My feet are sore but I never got winded.  Go me. I didn’t sign up for any bootcamps or labs, so I had the day free…

This is bad for U.S. businesses..... and hopefully good for EU citizens.
 
EU court declares Safe Harbor dead
NSA has officially killed big data business in the US

I am tired... but I had the +BBC News​ on my radio and this was enough to wake me up.

We're toast. This is huge.

Steps: 17,018!  (~ 8.3 miles!) New high count.  Mostly due to repeated trips between Treasure Island and the Venetian. The keynote address focused on IoT, the Internet of Things, and how AWS is building services to enable developers to write applications,…

Steps: 11,520 or approximately 5.6 miles. Less than yesterday, but not bad. I attended several sessions today. These notes are mostly to help me put in a pin in things I need to think more about. The keynote address was a whirlwind of new services from…

I’m at the AWS re:Invent conference this week in Vegas and am wearing a pedometer. I’m gonna be on me feet a lot this week and want to see how many steps I take each day. The count for Monday 10/5 was 2,814 steps from packing, puttering around the house,…

Meh. Still haven't found any place in PA that matches the Mexican food in NC. Heavy, almost burnt flavor home made tortilla chips and no salsa, just pico.

Had lunch here yesterday. I'm on a low-carb diet so I ordered the Grilled chicken ceasar salad. Wow! What a salad! Huge bowl of nicely cut romaine lettuce with croutons (forgot to ask for no croutons) and two entire grilled chicken breasts sliced up on top. The dressing came on the side and was quite good. The chicken was nicely cooked and very flavorful. I ate almost the entire thing, sans croutons, and came away well satiated! Would definitely eat here again.
