Mourning Ban 2009

Hello blog fans!

The title celebrates this piece of wisdom, but other then that, the old news – I’m going to Burning Man 2009 (btw – checkout the Thunderdome) , I’ll be getting there slightly early (got an early pass! can cut all that traffic), on the 29th (just had a really strange episode – alt-tabbed away, and then looked for the email client where I was writing, until figuring out it wasn’t email I was writing – weird).

Been alternately staying home or going to Noise Bridge in SF, yesterday attended Erlang class there, and now I’m writing my first piece of that – a gui to capture all the nice packets with Mobile Station info we are sending now from the OpenBTS everytime a new MS registers with us. The penultimate goal (right behind world domination) is to have a nice display going in BM with all the locations of the various members, and also to correlate that with transceiver control loop parameters. Will be a nice display of the kind of privacy we are getting from using cell phones.

To finish with something lighter, I got my camera, a Canon A590IS (Image Stabilization in case you are wondering), and as they say, an image is worth 1MB of text (as long as it is ascii, and no compression is allowed), so far my photography skills are not there yet, but worked in the Berkley Bowl (this image is dedicated to my former flatmates, may their throats never run dry):

Current plans are going to Australia, Sydney, on the 28th of September (with 10hr in LA), start off with a trek in Tasmania, after that TBD, come back to SF on the first of December. According to the climate I won’t be able to go too north or I’ll be greeted by the wet season. On the other hand, maybe a yes? no worries.

    That’s not beer at all…. ‘pommegranate ale’, right below the brand “origin”. Dude, it’s like finding yourself in a skewed history of Jewish folklore… weird!
