03:30 am - I did a lot today
I did two major things today.
First, I went to a local computer store, and bought two systems to be my webserver and firewall here in Seattle. I won't be getting them for a week or two at least, partly because I asked for a just released extra-quiet heatsink. I'm designing these systems for minimum noise. I'm going to have to be in the same room with them all the time, so it's important.
Second, I went on a long bike trip to Discovery Park. Getting everything straight with the systems I wanted took longer than I expected, and the bike ride took a lot longer than I expected, so I didn't get to spend much time there, even though it's very pretty.
Here's the approximate route I took:
There were a lot of hills, and some were pretty steep. It was a very grueling bike ride. I decided to take the bus back. The busses in Seattle all have bike racks. But, when I got off the bus, I forgot about my bike. :-( I'm really hoping my bike shows up at the bus station.
