    Oct 14 earthquake Bay Area

    As a native, anything under 5.0 is just the garage door getting slammed shut. Didn't feel a thing.

    Trivia questions

    Cool. If I'm ever free on a Monday night, I'll wander down. What time, and how do you avoid MNF?

    Planned power outages this week?

    So, I'll stay on topic before ranting a bit... 1. According to the map, we are just outside one of the zones to be shut down on the Peninsula. Unfortunately, the grid is cobbled together over decades, and PG&E doesn't really know how accurate the boundaries are. We'll know in two hours. 2. Their website crashed. Yup. Couldn't access it, because they never thought they would have that level of traffic. Rant: they have, for years, been an evil empire of corruption, managing to get retired executives and lobbyists appointed to the CPUC. So, biggest case in point? They get a rate increase approved several years ahead of blowing up San Bruno, to 'maintain and improve' the gas pipeline infrastructure. Not one single dime was spent on what the increase was for, resulting in the town and lives getting blown up. What did they spend it on? Bonuses to the executives. Shutting down power lines that have not been maintained, upgraded, foliage pruned away, or placed underground is a stop-gap at best, given the amount of money and rate increases they've taken in. Solar panels and a storage system are in our near future.
  4. The Daiquiri is the drink of Kings, of JFK and Papa Hemingway, and will always be one of my faves. The Sazerac Cocktail is also a fave, particularly with oysters on the half-shell (Old Overholt Rye whiskey; Peychaud's bitters; simple syrup; and Herbsaint to rinse the glass). Add to that a rum based Manhattan (El Dorado 3yo rum; Antica Carpana vermouth; a dash of orange and angoustora bitters; garnish with a proper Luxardo Marascha cherry). There you go.

    The Hum sailing movie

    This is the best sailing movie ever, because it begins and ends with a wager on a race in a YC bar: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0063117/reference And it has Gardner McKay as the star.

    yesterday, say hello to today

    She'll be a rocket ship, and the weight reduction is a bit exaggerated according to Jim Antrim.

    Coffee Anarchy

    Peet's Coffee for me, as I drink it cold and black. Don't care for dairy, sweetener, or anything that is described as "European Hazelnut morning surprise"... ;-)

    Data wiring advice required

    Not if it is twisted pair / Red-green with yellow-black RJ11 connectors. That said, you can try using the wire to pull RJ45 data cable through... Good luck!

    Antrim 27's, how many

    Not likely, though they might get posted on our FB page. I'll check in with him.

    One Hit Wonders

    No, IMHO, as they were only a 'band' in a movie. So the 'Oneders' do not count. And I do not believe their 'hit' received any radio play.

    One Hit Wonders

    Agreed, they don't count for the stated reason as well as the omission of the other hits from the album: Bell Bottom Blues; Have you ever loved a woman; Little Wing. All had solid radio play back in the 70s.

    One Hit Wonders

    Beg to differ. 10cc had quite a few hits: Art for art's sake; The things we do for love; The Wall Street shuffle; Good Morning Judge; Dreadlock Holiday; People in love; to name a few.

    One Hit Wonders

    I'll raise the ante to both a one hit and one album wonder: David and David, Boomtown LP. "Welcome to the Boomtown".

    One Hit Wonders

    One hit wonders. One hit, nothing more. Ringo has a career to this day, and had many hits, Rocky Racoon not being one of them. It was sung by Paul.
