Enjoy an afternoon by Pike Forest , just north of Woodland Park ,
celebrating the Summer equivalent of Groundhog Day
Going to be a laid back MMM . Just going to clean up what I can and smoke a turkey , lay in some booze & munchies , and open the gate . Come and enjoy an afternoon at altitude .
This year I've been too busy to get to get away from my screen and enjoy the summer sun or get any much needed outside work done . ( So if you've got a jones to do some chain sawing , please come and indulge yourself . )
The main goals which have been consuming my time are
creating a power point presentation for the October Pikes Peak Economics Club meeting on How to Calculate the Temperature of a Radiantly Heated Colored ball -- like our earth .
making progress on 4th.CoSy so I'll have something for show-and-tell at this year's Minnowbrook array programming language implementers conference in September in the Adirondacks .I'm planning to get to New York City the Tuesday before Minnowbrook to "debut" my power point "out of town" at the Manhattan Libertarian Party monthly meeting .
I drove out to my 50th reunion at Culver Military Academy in Indiana in May . Impressive school , impressive classmates . I much enjoyed sitting in on a calc class and meeting Nick Counts , head of the math department Most interesting observation : A screen is pulled down in front of the blackboards and a tablet is passed around to students rather than having them go to the board . Didn't manage to meet the science and physics faculty , which I feel is unfortunate because they appear to be captured by the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming nonscience .
Right before the reunion , the motherboard in my desktop popped . It consumed a couple of weeks when I got back upgrading to a new 22nm 4-core x86 chip and mobo and 8gB DDR3 memory . Turns out Windows Vista won't run on the new hardware and it was a pita moving to Windows 8 . Cost a LOT of time . But it is faster now .
So , if you're in the State , drop on up , relax and chat , see the salamander I pulled out of our well , or wander our dozen acres . If you've a suggestion , or want to RSVP just comment below .
See ya !
