Stopped by the kids place in Kingston Georgia, work is progressing nicely and they should be able to move in soon. We will take Susan's Mom out for lunch today then head on up to home.
I plan on concentrating on getting the 12c cluster up and running next week. Of course Open World, EDGE and another SNIA event are coming up as well as trips to the Midwest and New York as well as California. Of well, travel so fast old age can't catch ya I guess!

I presented to day on implementing IDC testing guidelines using VDBench. Unfortunately since I was in the last time slot on the last day I only had a few attendees but they asked many questions and seemed to enjoy the presentation.
Tomorrow evening I am attending an open house at All Power Labs (http://www.allpowerlabs.com/) who knows, if I like what I see I may contact a unit for my retirement home. They manufacture a 20 KW biomass fueled gasifier that power a generator. I looked at a 15-20KW solar option but it is very pricey at $80k (with batteries).
Well, that is about all for now.
