Tuscaloosa Visit

Visited Tuscaloosa this weekend; a good trip. Saw some old friends; even ran into the hillarious ST Bunn III (aka Dually). As usual, he had many stories. Oh, and his first name really is ST; it stands for "ST".

I hadn't seen ST in some years, but had been looking to re-establish communications with him. About that time, Wade & Audrey Smith showed up too, which was fun, cause Wade also knows ST, so we all got caught up on things.

Mallet also had a Halloween party; the Spirit of Marvin was present; the current Malleteers are doing OK--they are trying, though the dorm could definitely use more senior guidance. There were pre-warnings of a potential bust, but it never happened (they have a pretty impressive intelligence network, details of which I won't go into here to protect the methods & operations).

Maggie & I also went to a wedding on Sunday. It was a little bit unorthodox, but nice.

Wide-area WiFi without the repeaters...

These maybe of interest to people. I've got a couple of them at work; you can cover 3+ (linear) miles with these, or about 9+ square miles, under ideal conditions and with proper config.

They seem too good to be true, but the VP1210's do what they claim.

Missed the Ordnance Museum...

Had meeting at DTC HQ durring my 8 hour visit to Aberdeen Proving Grounds. Got about 78% of the funding I requested for my projects; average was 50%, so I did pretty good.

One of my projects was funded 100%, but the one I'm keenest about only got 57% funded; I can definitely accomplish baseline goals with that amount, but not sure I can achieve what I was hoping for.

It's nice to be home.

Aberdeen: not a nice place

Don't let the picture fool you: the hotel (and Aberdeen in general) is a real crap-hole.
