Bad Weather Headed Our Way?

Posted on/at 6:56 PM by Sparky


Tonight our youngest son told us about how he learned today in school to build a barometer with a bottle and saucer filled with water. Well he did everything he was told and put this thing together, he then told us about the water levels and what they meant and if the water in the bottle goes down it can mean bad weather. So about an hour passed and he runs in to tell us the water level had gone down? hmm interesting we said. The funny part is about a half hour after he put it all together I watched our cat drinking from her new funny looking dish, I just didn't have the heart to tell my son that the cat was the culprit for the "forecast" of bad weather! Maybe that's what our local weather station uses since they are always wrong.

Wet Day Again

Posted on/at 6:10 PM by Sparky


What a terrible day it has been , it has rained all day and now they said it is going to cool off and turn to snow over night, I guess I would rather deal with snow than the rain. This is an old Picture but I thought it was cute. It is sort of how I feel today just stay inside and do nothing. Today we started planning for all the work we are going to do at my companies office. We are going to put in a server rack, server, patch panel and security system with a dvr. Now if I could only talk them into open source software.

Securty Cameras

Posted on/at 7:51 PM by Sparky


Today I spent some time at our business getting a layout for some security cameras. There are so many different types of cameras and dvr's . We are going to get a complete system that has everything included so all we have to do is basically install it.

We did choose to get a dvr that is network enabled so it can be viewed remotely or after hours.

Christmas Is On Its Way

Posted on/at 9:09 PM by Sparky


My wife started decorating this weekend, It is hard to believe that Christmas is almost here again it seems like it was just a couple months ago we were doing all of this. Even the cat isn't amused by it. The part I do not look forward to is the outdoor decorations, the temperature has dropped now that I have decided to do some decorating, last week was bearable outside however the last few days it has been pretty cold.




I found a pretty neat flash Slide show maker that's free not a 15 day trial its really free, all it does is put a banner at the last frame , for free that didn't bother me.
