Spent time recabling an auxiliary server cabinet, to undo years of cruft and bad initial cabling decisions.  For some reason one of the network drops is about 50' longer than it needs to be.   As if to teach me a lesson in consequences for taking the easy way out, as soon as I pushed the cabinet back into position in the corner, the velcro holding the coiled length of cat6 snapped, spraying now tangled ethernet cable everywhere.  

This looks like a job for....

I keep hoping that when the Canadian Soldiers (another name for mayflies) invade every year, one day Ohio will just surrender and become part of Canada so that I can enjoy their social programs and politeness without moving any farther north.

Oh noes!  It's time for everyone to get in their choices now and marry the same sex partner of your choice, before the government starts pairing everyone off for the mandatory gay marriages!  If you're not careful, you might get stuck with a liberal! #ridiculousthingspeopleareafraidof
 
HOORAY!
In a landmark victory for gay rights, a divided Supreme Court ruled that state prohibitions on same-sex marriage violate the Constitution.

Birthdays are GREAT! Accept your years. Revel in life - the riding, the fucking, the eating, the smoking, the drinking. Make music and dance. Wear some great clothes. Listen to the warm.

Don't bother ordering online. They'll never see your order and when you call an hour later to see where your pizza is, they'll lie and say "we've been very busy with deliveries and your pizza will go out in 20-25 minutes." What kind of idiot do they think I am that I believe that the time it takes to make a pizza is exactly how far down in the queue I am? Coming up on 2 hours since I ordered, still no pizza.

They've improved their process and the quality of their food. I suspect they're under new management, but I don't go there often enough to comment on that. This restaurant is very close to work, but I generally only go there when a group is interested, so it's been nearly a year since I've been in. They've replaced the generic signs above the counter with flat screens, tweaked the menu items a little, and reasonably reduced the size of the side of sweet and sour sauce. Instead of a large half full container, it's a very full small container. Instead of calling out your order and hoping the right person picks it up, they hand you a number when you place and pay for your order. Chopsticks, other utensils, soy sauce, and napkins are all out for you to pick up yourself. The need to communicate in broken english has been reduced as much as possible, though I'm pretty sure they all speak better english than I do. I will make a point of visiting more often...

It was a little spendier than I was looking for as a mid-ride snack, but the pulled chicken tacos were amazing and they had my favorite non-local IPA in bottles. Friendly waitress, cute little patio that was just a little too sunny, and a great location near the Rocky River Reservation.

Didn't have kilt hose in the store, very small collection of accessories for that sort of thing, all of which were 6-8x as expensive as I could find online. If you're after various pastries, this is probably a decent place, if you're looking to flush out your kilt with hose, etc, plan ahead and don't bother with this shop.

I always love an excuse to visit the Buckeye Beer Engine. As a car free east suburbs resident I don't make it out that way very often, so that just makes it all the more special. BBE has a two page draft list and a booklet of what's available in bottles arranged by style, if you can't find something to drink here, you don't like drinking. The food menu is fantastic as well, with house made specialties like meatloaf and chicken paprikash, how can you go wrong?

A rare gem - real bbq, bartenders who don't just serve up drinks, and a burger that really needs no condiments. Happened to wander into this place when my usual haunts were already closed and discovered that their kitchen is open until the drinks license says they have to stop serving. Stop in late, have a drink and doodle on the placemat while you wait for your savory brisket, your fried green tomatoes, your pulled pork tacos. Damn, I think it's time I made it back in there :)
