The Frog
He and his brother had taken a very keen liking to a tree-frog that had decided to climb our front porch wall.  "Fffaw!" his little toddling brother would announce.  "Frog!" my older son would reply, jumping up and down excitedly and grinning ear to ear.  "...

Bedtime
"Wa-tuh!  Wa-tuh!" came the little plea, over and over in the slow, learning way of a toddler.  "Wa-tuh!"  He pointed and stomped his feet expectantly. "OK," said I, picking him up and settling him into a well-known hold that made carrying him relatively pa...

.pyc "Bad magic number" solution
I am reporting this solution here for convenience.  Without going into specifics, the issue I had related to a Myth NetVision plugin. I ran into an issue with a project that included only a .pyc file.  The file was compiled with Python 2.6, but the system s...

STUNned... when a useful feature burns your ass
So I've been doing some experimentation with Asterisk.  I have deployed a couple of servers so far, one at work and one at home, both pure testing environments.  Yeah, don't worry, I have horribly miserable-to-type (i.e. strong) passwords on all my test acc...

A Value for Life
We have, as of late, been increasingly fascinated by the books we have partaken.  Recently, the following have been very interesting reads: The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark, by Carl Sagan Parenting Beyond Belief - Raising Ethical, Ca...

Losing Faith, aka Finding Wisdom
It starts with curiosity.  Or with devotion.  It is a moment of inspiration, of wonder.  It is a moment where possibility and imagination meet. Gaze into the heavens and you will see it: brilliant stars brighter than any others.  The planets.  Watch them lo...
