Another short day (150 miles). Actually this was originally planned as for as our first night before we decided to avoid leaving DC on a Monday morning. Hot weather, but an easy drive. We did avoid a thunderstorm by stopping so early in the day. Twin Grove Campground is a bit out of the way. But no freeway noise, and nice overall. Pennsylvania scenery is nice, but we are looking forward to a lot more as we go north.
First long time off since since 1991. Used to do it fairly often with change of station who I was an active duty Marine, but that time has long passed. Since I “retired” back in 1993 I have worked steadily with very little time away. But today my wife and I are off on a slow RV trip to the Canadian Maritimes. We will not be back until the end of August. Our son is watching the house, so we have all that covered. Looking forward to a great trip. And maybe even back working with IPAWS when we get back. 🙂

The definition of “glitch” covers almost a whole page of text.
“Glitch” is a formal liability insurance term used by the Hartford to describe IT issues it covers. Guess it is more inclusive than “bug.” The definition of “glitch” covers almost a whole page of text.
Resiliency supports reliability, but sometimes, and in IT especially, all the extra services like backups, alternate sites, automatic failover, automated retry, etc. add so many parts that things seem like they are always breaking somewhere. With the right design, the system itself does not fail. But damn, there is a lot to monitor and fix all the time to make that larger failure not happen. Yep, that is #IPAWS; highly reliable, very resilient, and aways with some issue somewhere causing a problem. But saving lives every day.
Warm today, but not unbearable. As I ride the train into town this morning, I cannot remember an August in recent years with better weather. Enough rain, but lower temperatures and humidity. Unfortunately, perfect for chickweed. My lawn is a mess.
