A six month journey along the 2,200 mile long Appalachian Trail, condensed and reinterpreted into five minutes of stop-motion.

    The Appalachian Trail is a rugged wilderness footpath stretching 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine. Each year a few adventuresome individuals endeavor to hike its entire length in one long trek. For half a year these thru-hikers encounter all of the severity, grace and challenge to be found on the United States' most famed trail. Filmmaker Kevin Gallagher walked the length of this path and, in doing so, sought to capture the sometimes inchoate and transcendent experience of living in the natural world.

The Meaning of "Richesnay"

Spring is officially here but it is hard to tell from the weather. We had a small blast of snow today and that got me thinking of Richesnay and the following article. I originally wrote this for TheClimber.net. For the longest time if you "AltaVista"ed the word you would be served this, top-center. TheClimber.net had catastrophic data loss and this content went with it. However thanks to the "Wayback Machine" over at Archive.org I was able to rescue the following and happily resubmit it here BlogDogIt.
First Published 09 March 08 12:40 AM http://www.theclimber.net/

    There is a very good possibility that today was Richesnay. All the signs were there. The sudden blowing, swirling, voluminous, late winter snowfall that surely marks the coming of spring.

    While I am certainly not one to scoff at Punxsutawney Phil's prediction this year of 6 more weeks of Winter. It would be far less likely for me to turn my back on the perennial wisdom of my Grandfather. While the rest of the world seems to make bank on a woodchuck's shadow, yea or nay, we will put our faith in Richesnay.

    Richesnay does not boast the forecasting precision of "Grounhogs Day" nor does it exhibit the degree of universal acceptance. For Grandpa at least - and for us by extension - it is a truism. It is just one of those things that you have to see to believe. As far as my family is concerned, we have seen it enough to believe.

    The truism - simply put - goes something like this: "We can't have Spring until the Richesnay." If my Mother's acuteness to the conditions that constitute Richesnay are anywhere near those of my dearly departed Grandfather then we should fully expect Spring to be just around the corner. While this prediction lacks certitude it's always been good enough for us.

Reprinted from Ben Krasnow's Blog:

Today, I finally produced an image with my DIY scanning electron microscope. I've spent the last few months working on this project, and am encouraged by today's success. There is still a lot of work left to do in making the image higher resolution, and eliminating sources of noise, however this image proves that all parts of the microscope are operating as designed.

Still considered by many to be one of the most dangerous stunts of all time.

Steamboat Bill, Jr. is the story of a naive, college-educated dandy who must prove himself to his working-class father, a hot-headed riverboat captain, while courting the daughter of his father's rival, who threatens to put Steamboat Bill, Sr. and his paddle-wheeler out of business.

Creeper is 40

Creeper, the first computer virus, is 40 years young.

Creeper (from the old Scooby Show

    Forty years ago today [ March 17, 2011 ] is considered by many to be the birthday of the first computer virus. Of course, in the early 1970s they weren't called computer viruses, but that doesn't make Bob Thomas's handiwork any less special. Creeper (named after a character in the old Scooby Doo cartoons) spread from BBN Technologies' DEC PDP-10 through Arpanet, displaying the message: "I'm the creeper, catch me if you can!" and messing with people's printers. One notable difference between this and the majority of viruses was the fact that it deleted old versions as it replicated itself. Incidentally, that would make 2011 the fortieth anniversary of the first anti-virus software: called, appropriately enough, Reaper.

After making it through the holidays and into the new year I find myself compelled to contribute to BlogDogIt. Today I sit in my humble home, in the throws of winter. Ten degrees and snow all around; I think what is needed here is something to warm the spirit.

It was several years ago while vacationing in Ely Minnesota and adrift on a lake in a small boat - I was fishing for crappie but the biggest catch of the day was hooked with the antenna on the radio. That was the day I first discovered Garrison Keillor and his radio program named "A Prairie Home Companion."

At the time I was a big fan of talk radio and lamented the fact that there where no variety radio programs like those of the good ol' days. The discovery of this program was nothing short of a eureka moment. In fact - in terms of a fishing analogy - it was I whom was hooked on that day.

Returning home I was pleased to find several LPs in the collection of our public library. I borrowed them all and dubbed them to cassette tape. Of course that was in the days before the internet as we know it today.

The purpose of this post is to let you know about the gold mine of entertainment that awaits on the internet over at http://prairiehome.publicradio.org A Prairie Home Companion web site. Be sure to check out the archives there; you will find recordings of practically every PHC broadcast available for your listening pleasure.

I have made available a single episode for you to listen to today. (with apologies to PublicRadio.org)


Lets break the bonds of winter and get away with A Prairie Home Companion - from September 16, 1985 -
This show comes to us from Honolulu, Hawaii.
