What's the coldest temperature you've ever experienced?

So, I live in Texas. I'm use to warmer weather during the winter time with the occasional cold burst. Today is one of those cold spurts with 28 Degrees Fahrenheit. I have to admit it, I am not the biggest fan of cold weather.

And, then... There's Russia.

In Russia's remote Yakutia region, it's hit minus 67 degrees Celsius (minus 88.6 Fahrenheit)!


Even eyelashes are freezing, people!

I made ramen noodles!

Over the weekend, a few friends came over to make homemade ramen. My mind was blown with the process in making the broth and the noodles. One of the friends who visited worked in a kitchen for 15 years, so he's developed his craft very well. I'm working on concentrating the broth and will be freezing it today to save for future ramen meals, but what caught my eye more than anything was how to make homemade noodles. I never made them before and definitely do not have a pasta maker, so this was a brand new experience for me.

Two hours and two overworked shoulders later, I had a healthy supply of homemade noodles!

Basically, this is two cups of flour, BAKED baking soda, and a half a cup of water. This dough is very elastic which was what took me so long in kneading it and rolling it out. I'm quite proud of this batch and I'm definitely...

Best (or worst) way you've killed a computer

i was working on a laptop yesterday, attempted to update the bios using a flash utility from the laptop manufacturer for the exact model, and it failed bricking the laptop. what a crappy way to go - so anticlimactic. It got me thinking about computers i'd either killed or was present when they were killed, some were spectacular some not so much.

1) plugged a wiring rig for a project we were working on in the wrong way round and put the full whack of the 12V 6A bench supply into the serial port instead of the attached device. spectacular bang and release of the smoke monster. pc was less than 3 weeks old. some of the copper tracks on the motherboard were completely scorched off. RIP.
2) i was plugging together a new (to us) sparcstation with some external storage when the pfy switched it on while i was still in the process of plugging...

Hawaii missile debacle gets better - photo of post-it notes with passwords

The password is (hopefully was) Warningpoint2.  Any bets on whether the new password is Warningpoint3?

A puzzler?

So, I enjoy a good riddle, or puzzle, or logic "game"... but sometimes you get "something" where it is utterly incomprehensible, until you are given the "key" to it.

This happened the other day. Basically as a result of someone learning a new "interesting fact" they decided to try to use it. And it was totally meaningless. Until they told people where it came from.

It is a neat thing to know, and could be used by those in the know, but... Let's see if any Spiceheads could make the complete leap in... logic? To understand. So I picked something that works with the Spiceworks community... here it is:

hamster victor evening

Anyone know what "that" is?

or is everyone going:

Post your Best answer.

Okay... related to this is:

outright clouds flux

I'm sure someone can do it from that. I mean evenSarah Crook (Spiceworks)can find "outright clouds...

Have snow to clean up and want to stay warm?

And you have a 3D printer and some skills that could use work?  You could build your own RC Snow Kat!

Did I miss a memo?

HPE onsite visit over the weekend to swap motherboard and NIC in Gen 9. 

I had already applied patches to this server prior to this (no correlation, just a coincidence I hope) for Spectre/Meltdown.

HPE Engineer (very nice and knowledgeable gentleman) calls HPE to verify BIOS and other firmware/drivers/etc for the new hardware.

HPE guy on the phone (elevated VMWare trained guy at that) tells us that I should be running a SPP with a BIOS version from Sept 2016. When I strongly questioned this, he then proceeds to tell me that is the recommended versions from both VMWare and HPE.

I am still shaking my head. Was it April Fools Day and I missed it? Good one HPE phone guy. Go home, you're drunk.

The Problems with Mind Uploading

Have you ever thought of uploading your brain into a computer so you could live forever? Maybe do it to be Skynet? Or maybe you just want to troll the world with your near endless connections? Before technology is available to make this happen, we should step back and think about the philosophical implications of such a move.

Questions such as "is it really you after being uploaded?" Would a digital "you" have consciousness? Is it possible for a computer to develop a consciousness, or is it just fancy computer tricks to mimic it? Maybe it's just a pack of consciousness kittens?

Check out this video on the problems that would need to be address, preferably before, but most likely after the first brain is uploaded. If you're interested in more deeper conversations of the meaning of life, consciousness kittens and just how crazy humanity...
