    Hey Penguins! Some of you may remember that we tried to share this last week and it wasn't working. So let's try this again! I'm sure we've got it this time :D Ever wondered how many puffles are out there? Well we've got a poster for that and it's EPIC.  You can view the full puffle poster by clicking on the image below. Tip: Once you've opened the link, you can click on the poster to make it bigger! Isn't it amazing?! Huge round of applause for Deamama and Spaghett, our super talented writer and designer, who worked really hard to create this. Do you have any of these? Have you seen…

    Things That Capture My Imagination
    17 May 2015 | 11:32 am
    When I first heard about the cancer smart bomb created at Weizmann, it sounded like science fiction. Here’s the story: a man’s prostate tumor was exploded with chlorophyll and lasers in twenty minutes during an outpatient procedure. He experienced no side effects, and the tumor was urinated out. He wasn’t just in remission. He was cured. To celebrate, he went off biking for a week. As a Weizmann Advocate for Curiosity and a collaborator with the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science, I have been fortunate enough to get updated on the work of the institute’s…

I won’t tell you how I found out, but be sure to read this article: Cisco Bug: CSCut61527 – B200M4 could reboot on shallow_chkpt when BMC returns invalid FRU data. https://tools.cisco.com/quickview/bug/CSCut61527 Affected firmware: 2.2(3) and 2.2(3a)A according to the KB. My upgrade was from 2.2(3c) to 2.2(3f). According to the KB this issue should be resolved in 2.2(3g)A.

    The Empire State Building can glow in 16 million different colors. Every night, when I go up to the roof, I can see it. Most of the time, it appears in classic white light, the way most people around the world imagine it. Last week, it was transformed in a dazzling way that did more than just hint at the full possibility of so many colors. The Empire State Building became an illuminated beacon to celebrate the new Whitney Museum with a light show featuring a dozen pieces of art from Rothko to Warhol and even the Super Mario Clouds by Cory Arcangel. Tonight, though, the familiar icon…

    With VMware Log Insight you can create great queries. For some environments we have known bugs and since we can’t always update as fast as we would like, I’ve built some simple queries to alert me whenever the bug is more likely to kick in.  For example, I have a query that warns me by e-mail when the logs show “netGPHeap already at its maximum size” because this is a symptom of a known bug.  Often when searching through KB.vmware.com for a problem I’m experiencing, I see a list of symptoms mentioned by a KB. Wouldn’t it be great if you could also see a…
  • Manage your VMware Metro Storage Cluster with Tags

    Gabrie van Zanten
    23 Apr 2015 | 1:53 am
    Running a VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (VMware vMSC) makes it possible to move VMs between two geographical locations without downtime. In a Metro Storage Cluster a vSphere Cluster consists of ESXi hosts from both locations with shared storage that is stretched over these locations. Using a VMware Metro Storage Cluster makes your environment even more resilliant against failures and can help you get up and running again much faster should a disaster occur. To get more information on VMware Metro Storage Cluster read the following articles: Implementing vSphere Metro Storage…
  • Check correct path policy of RDMs

    Gabrie van Zanten

    Our vSphere version combined with EMC VNX MCX OE version advices Round Robin as path policy. For RDMs used by a Microsoft Cluster however, Most-Recently-Used is the adviced policy. If a Microsoft Cluster has the incorrect path policy, there is a hughe latency on the RDM. We have noticed that reboot of the ESXi host or forced rescan of the HBA will reset the path policy selection. To be able to keep an eye on unwanted changes in path policy, we use the famous vCheck by Alan Renouf and added our own plugin.  $Report = @() $GevondenMRULuns = 0 $Header = "" foreach($vm in (Get-View…

    Gabrie van Zanten

    For you vSphere environment you always want to make sure that all paths to your storage system are connected. That is why in our vSphere environment we run a daily morning check that tells us if there are any death paths between hosts and storage. Before upgrades of our SAN or flare code upgrades of our storage arrays, we also make sure there are no death paths in our vSphere environement. Although this looks to be a good practise, we never realised until a few weeks ago, that after rescanning a host with death paths, the rescan can make the path completely dissapear. We did use a script to…

    What makes a sport popular - then not? A chat broke out on Twitter. One of those chats that tells you that Twitter can be a terrible place to chat. So let's have a go here. Boxing used to be popular. Really popular. It caught the public imagination for centuries. In the 18C there was the Fancy - rich young things that adopted boxing and language of the working classes as trend. Boxing flourished. It became international. It took off in America, transatlantically and globally. When We Were Kings is not just a film about two men hitting each other, it's about nations and symbolism.

    21 May 2015 | 4:28 pm
    An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog. As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by. They fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the…

    Your 8-bar loop rolls around in circles (perhaps an oddly-formed ellipse) like a toy choo-choo train. You have every power to change the cars, or what’s on them, and send a new loop forth. You can be additive or subtractive — both shift the observer’s focus. You bring something forth, you take something away. You place grains where there was steel, and supplant cattle with — heck — a thuggering clash of cryptozoological fiends in their all-too-small aquatic cage.

  • COMMON SENSE ON ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC (EDM)

    Torley
    8 Oct 2014 | 5:10 pm
    Allow me to posit a long-term perspective: it used to be that “electronic dance music culture” encouraged a producer to release diverse, crackin’ brilliant records under many pseudonyms. They actually trespassed genres without overproclaiming-and-underdelivering it (unlike so many label blurbs today) and ultimately delivered experimental AND musical work. White label or not, young me could not believe that one (or two) people could be responsible for such a spectrum of smashing sounds. Fast-forward to today, and tragically, the inverse is true. There’s a predominance…
  • Top 3 mistakes disrupting the cohesive illusion field when doing 80s-like #synthwave/#outrun/#retrofuture music

    (1) MASTERING TOO SQUASHED or non-existent dynamic range. Listen to old records for their air and power when a big chord crashes down. (2) PUTTING OLD SOUNDS IN NEW SPACES, resulting in temporal anachronisms that even casual listeners feel are “off”. Spacial (which is the way it should be spelt) processing has a HUGE yet subtle effect on the end sound. Many Vangelis copycats are lacking because they ignore the master’s shading, it’s like painting oils on textureless office stock instead of canvas. Opt for noisy reverbs or choice convolution impulses. Easy fix: Ableton…

    Ableton Live’s implementation of Racks (which I’ll subsequently use lowercase) are one of the elegantest (we can say “finest”, so why not) tools in electronic music. They allow you, among many other things, to add convenient macro controls to 3rd-party plugins that don’t have them. The following isn’t intended to be any sort of technical advice, just my observations on why I feel so strongly. It may be of interest if you don’t care about the process of making music, yet are nonetheless curious about my specific obsession. Sort of like documentaries about people passionate in…

I’m also blessed that so many talented sound designers have sent me their virtual instruments to play, although I’m cursed in parallel with (1) not having more time to explore and (2) being extremely preferential about my sonic preferences, based heavily on the types of projects I’m working on for both my own and collaborators’ growth. As a minimalist of sorts, it makes me sad when I receive gifts I don’t actually use, including virtual ones, so if I didn’t publicly play what…

I'm a total amateur but hopefully I'll get good enough to be a real SL photographer soon enough. I don't do much photo editing (lack of experience) but I have been playing around with gimp and hopefully will start posting edited photos as well. I appreciate kind constructive criticisms and suggestions so please leave comments! Mahalo nui loa!

  • Novel Update: Four Chapter Preview

    18 May 2015 | 10:06 am
    I'm still making good progress on the novel and hope to complete an end-to-end draft by early summer. For now, here's a preview of the first four chapters. They introduce most of the main characters and illustrate the alternating timeline format I'm using for the plot.
  • The Play of Characters

    16 Apr 2015 | 8:29 am
    Who puts words in a character's mouth? It seems simple, right? The author. But who puts the words in your mouth? Another self-evident answer? Not really. It seems like there's a single "you" inside who is responsible for all of your words, thoughts, feelings and actions. There is is obviously a single brain and body behind it all. But within that one system there are many identities, moods, desires and emotions that vary from hour to hour and from context to context. Some of them are fairly consistent, while others may vary wildly and even be in conflict with each other. Some are driven by…
  • Monthly Update on Novel

    20 Mar 2015 | 2:24 pm
    I'm about two-thirds through the novel, just getting to the climax of Act II. The plotting got complicated enough a few weeks ago that I created a spreadsheet to keep track of the flow of dates and events. Chapters had been alternating between 2100 and 2150 and I had to make sure that everything was lining up properly. I'm glad I checked. I was way off. I ended up moving all of the events from 2150 to 2115, which allowed the timelines to merge perfectly a few chapters ago. Whew!I've done two major rewrites so far. The first happened at the end of Act I when I realized that the secondary…

    It’s been about a month and a half since I wrote about starting a novel and reducing my online writing output. You might have noticed that I’ve been totally kicking ass on the second part, having only posted a few times since then. The novel part is going well too. I’m about 26,000 words in, spending about as much time editing prior material as adding new chapters. The main reason I spend so much time editing is that my iterative approach to creative work has extended into the longer form. The story has been unfolding in surprising ways. When something new emerges, it ripples back,…

    So many hunts, so little time. I keep telling myself that I’ll get to all these hunts but they just keep slipping though my schedule. If only real life could just be put on hold! My partner and I recently finished the Puss & Boots Hunt. It was a fun hunt, though I haven’t even started opening the boxes yet. Anyway, there are lots of hunts to partake of if you have the time. Good luck with that! If you haven’t gone out on a hunt before, it’s time to get your feet wet. Hunts are a great way to pick up a lot of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory.

    Have you read this thought passionate and thought-provoking post by Aemeth? Observing Two Sides of the Mirror, read it! Aems wants to know, “What keeps you here?” What drew me to SL was freedom. Freedom to do whatever I want, even if that thing is doing nothing at all. I’m not a gamer, so games with quests or goals didn’t appeal to me. I made friends, and we had fun. Then we discovered fashion, and it was fantastic! Do you realize that none of those things that I love about SL have anything to do with fucking (sex!). I LOVE SL FOREVER, however long that may last.

    Please note: this guest post is by Aemeth, not Gogo. It is in response to this entry on NWN. When I first announced quitting SL last year, I said the grid would die in 2017. But before that, I said, it would experience a shrinkage. The next grid LL would experiment on would fail. They wouldn’t produce another one, and would try too late to save this one. The community would see another mass exodus. Then, copyright would become a bigger problem with less creators putting out fresh items, and even less staff to enforce violations. And finally, the cost of keeping the game running would no…

    As mobile learning continues to receive attention and gain momentum as an effective tool for learning, as do the myths surrounding mobile learning. Unfortunately, many people do not have an accurate understanding of what mobile learning is, exactly, and how businesses and educational institutions alike can benefit from it.

It is essential to keep your learners in mind when designing an e-learning module, as they are the ones who will determine your project’s success. It is not enough to simply put information together and assume your learners will somehow understand what you are trying to convey. Through the use of various tools, technologies, and designs, you must clearly and accurately communicate the objective of your training, as well as the role that is expected of the user. Clear communication is crucial…
