Scary Halloween Thought

One week left at the Teradyne Lincoln St building. Then the building is closed and my office moves up to Teradyne North Reading.

I've been taking the T for over ten years. I took the Red Line from Quincy for four years and then the commuter rail from Sharon for the past six years.

In my previous job I had a two mile commute.

In the job before that (my first job after college) I had a 5 mile commute.

Now I'm looking at a 42 mile commute each way. I've registered with Massrides, but there aren't any vanpools available for my commute at this time. For the first time in my life I'm going to have a long driving commute.

My last day at Lincoln St is October 31. Anyone have good commuting tips?

Hosting

Ailsa's domain, ailsaek.com, just expired. It is currently hosted at speakeasy.net and registered through them with network solutions, but I am considering other providers. The frontrunner at the moment is Bluehost (the provider that filkertom recently switched to).

We don't run a business through this website, mostly we just post pictures and I experiment with databases. I'm looking for:

  • At least 1GB of storage
  • PHP
  • PostgreSQL
  • Maybe Ruby on Rails

Any suggestions, recommendations?

P.S. We're moving up to the Lowell-Haverhill area in a few months. Does anyone in that area have recommendations for broadband providers up there?

I amNyarlathotep!

The 999 forms of Nyarlathotep are a point of meditation for the true initiate. It is through these manifold faces that the secrets of the universe are made known. Called "The Crawling Chaos", Nyarlathotep is the disembodied ego of Azathoth and thus the universal "I" of known reality. Some of the many documented forms are; Father of Knives, Nephren-Ka, the Black Man, the Beast of the Lashing Tongue to name a few.

A brief meme and then back to bills

You scored as Dread Pirate Roberts. Letting people thing you are a billy bad ass keeps you in business but when it comes down to it, you'll do the right thing every time. You are a good person at heart and just can't help being the hero.

Ailsa & I are working on cleaning for Pesach today.

She mentioned that she had an image of the Asterix comics and Obelix observing Passover preparations and commenting "These Hebrews are crazy."

Now I'm pondering the idea of Getafix corresponding with one of the talmudic rabbis.

Moving

I will probably be moving soon. Two questions:

Does anyone have a mortgage lender they recommend (or recommend avoiding)?

Does anyone have a realtor in the Sharon (south of Boston) area they recommend (or recommend avoiding)?
