2014 BusFusion – Trip Report

After months of preparation, the 2014 edition of BusFusion is now a string of awesome memories. It started on Thursday (June 5th) with cool weather however by Friday afternoon the sun was out and the warmth tempted a lot of people into going for a swim in the Mississippi River. And the wonderful weather lasted […]

Welcome to the new ” dot Photography” Domains

I made a point of scooping up a few of the recently made available domain names under “dot Photography”… including the obvious choice of Kraiker.Photography.

The latest enhancements included getting some 3TB drives for local backups and a third NAS to do remote replication. The new drives are SATA III and my old dock didn’t […]

Well… a media feeding frenzy called Lance

Thursday August 23rd 2012 will be noted on a lot of calendars for years to come. Some will call it the coming out party of Lance Armstrong, others will mourn the loss of a hero. I spent the evening and following morning trying to get a handle on what was actually happening and now more […]
