I just noticed the comment they added at the end of our software release from last week. Accurate

As I'm cleaning the man cave. I came across my smart device life prior to iPhones. From right to left Nokia's 770, 800, and 810. They all still work. These are the devices I started out my podcast listening with.

These were early smart tablets marketed Nokia, that had a large number of mostly free (and some paid) "apps". All of them were touch screen devices that could be used either with just the finger, or with a stylus. Rugged as heck.

I was testing the latest code on our product, when we drove our son to bowling league. Imaging our surprise when we zoomed in on the tracking map and found that Chris's truck was actually in the Google Maps View where we happened to park today.

I didn't know her truck was in their data base photo. She's there about 2 - 4 times a month, 6 or seven months out of the year. What are the odds?

Before I did the hydraulic pump teardown yesterday, did some wood stacking for a neighbor. Added another full cord and squared this pile. This one seasoning pile is 10 cord. One of several on his property. Many of my neighbors in the Harbor rely solely on wood for heat.

Next step, off to the craft firewood creation studio for some artesian stacking.

Bottom Gear Moment. 4 hours of tearing down the back end of the tractor today. Finally was able to remove the damaged hydraulic pump (the tractor has two hydraulic pumps). Input shaft is toast. I'm taking it to a machine shop this week to see if they can cut it down and put a sleeve on it.

You got that right Doug. Total time to get to this point is about 3 days of work. Now it looks like this assembly is not available, so I will need to tear it down to remove the shaft, have it re-machined, and re-assemble.  The full tractor will take several days to re-assemble if I can get this shaft repaired.

Atomic Batteries to Power, Turbines to Speed, I think the Baternet Link is back to being self sufficient. (Well, the batteries ARE made of atoms, I can say that...) Two weeks of repairs after the mast snapped in the wind storm.

We live in a very remote area. The nearest digital fiber is 35 miles away. Most of the Internet connectivity in our county is via microwave link. This is a wind and solar powered relay station that supplies Internet connectivity to a large part of the county. This site is about 10 Km from any plowed roads, and a 732 foot climb in elevation to get to. Can be quite a problem to maintain in the winter. Luckily the snow is very late this year.

It's the Great Canadian National Day of Podcasting!  In honor of this momentous day, I have revived YooperCast with episode www.yoopercast.com/yoopercast/YooperCast14.mp3  and, oh yeah, episode 201 of the Podcast That Shall Not Be Named has rambled to the Interwebs as well.

So. I was playing Bob Stuph for my relatives via Blue Tooth, when I noticed that the meta tag displayed on the radio would probably not meet Bob's approval :-)

I'm guessing Downcast was the culprit here. I'm pretty sure Bob would not include Adam Curry in his meta tag.

Special WiFi gear to hack portals in next to no signal areas.  White microwave receiver has the proprietary protocols to access the back hauls. (Can't argue with it, It's Science!)
