I wonder how often the 'invite someone from the audience on-stage' thing works out. Ani's been such a prolific and enduring artist (I actually stumbled across this looking for the time she performed this song on ABC's Studio 22!) that this isn't a surprise.

Lucky bloke and a nice jam.

I like the simplicity of the graphics in this advertising campaign, and the surprising ease of recognition of many of the characters

Sanctuary Lakes appears to be a convenient point around which various fast aircraft are today circling for runs down the strip at the 2012 RAAF Air Pageant!

The difficulty with studying for an exam tomorrow is not with the noise, its with the intrigue and the time it takes to get out the door and look skywards.

Caught a Vampire (down from Temora presumably) out my window earlier today. And, if I'm not mistaken, a Sabre was overhead, smoke on, a few minutes ago and possibly an F-111 earlier.

I'm ordinarily happy that I get to casually watch an aerobatic display or formation every few weeks from the comfort of the driveway, but did the fast jets have to come the weekend I'm cramming for an exam?

Oh well, a clear sign that I need to get back in the air myself.

The desirable feature list for Windows 8 seems to be growing day-after-day!

A much better conceived set of objectives for a filesystem than WinFS, which I was pleased never really made it into Longhorn.

Interesting enough in its own right, but it also seems that some of the interesting recent features of NTFS aren't going to be continued (having said that, can anyone name an application that uses TxF?).

ZFS-style data integrity baked into a native Windows file system? Yes Please!

As a bit of a cover song lover, on occasion I do meander through YouTube videos the way that I imagine others do for their pet subjects.

Having thoroughly enjoyed the results of Lisa Hannigan's work with Damien Rice, it was a pleasure today to find her with John Smith taking on There Ain't No Ash Will Burn -- On a boat, no less, sounding great.

That, and another video of Joni Mitchell's "Willy", which I first heard her cover on a DR bootleg... A good day to be in a mood for Irish musicians!

Looks like my pfSense RRD hack to record the temperature of my home Firebox firewall is still working after about a day.

Perhaps a couple of the recent lock-ups weren't thermal in nature?

In any case this seems to be a wanted feature on the forums, so I might as well package it properly. It seems only fair - I did get an updated LCD driver with button support while being pointed at mbmon by the very same forums. And it would be nice to contribute in a small way to a project that's been so good out of the box for me for five+ years!

I'm guessing ground effect is helping avoid any grazes, but... WOW!
Crazy, Brave or Mad...Whatever you think you have to admit this is incredible!!!

Probably the most crazy man in the world

It isn't all that often that I pull out tools for detailed testing and analysis at work nowadays, and I think that's a bit of a shame.

Many years ago, I would continuously amass and trim my collection of utilities. Years later, I don't have such a boyish interest in such a technical Swiss army knife, with the possible exception of PowerShell.

But in the last day or so I got to stitch together some analysis using Sysinternals' Process Monitor. I've been a fan of Mark and Bryce's work and utilities for a good while now. Wielding procmon against a prod system and answering a question like "how long does it take for app x to compress a rolled log" in very specific terms gave me a certain satisfaction. Seeing some other expository event traces even got me thinking about ways to beat the vendor for app x in diagnosing some ongoing issues.

Now, I was running this collection in a VMware virtual machine and it got me to thinking... am I properly aware of what I'm measuring? And as someone who (sometimes) pulls the cover off things just to establish the esoteric truth in what most accept at face value, is that a good plan? Does it really matter?

I think I probably will come back to address these curiosities in the new year. (I wanted to use vProbes anyway). Even if it isn't edifying in the way I'd hoped, I may just pick up a new tool that'll be useful in my next role.

+Nick Bradford , +Luke Jones : you may be interested in what 'app x' is and perhaps a little shocked about scalability choke-points.
