South Texas BBQ:

I hadn’t barbequed since well before my surgery back in April.  That changed yesterday.  It’s no FRANKLIN’s or SALT LICK, but I think I think it came out okay ;)

Cooked items:

  • Cross-cut ribs
  • Pork Ribs - (St. Louis Style)
  • Rib eye steak
  • Sirloin steak
  • Beef sausage
  • Chicken halves
  • Chicken thighs

I spiced everything the night before and let it marinade over-night.  The chicken and ribs smoked for about 2hrs and then the rest went on.

Combined with Jennifer’s delicious charro beans, potato salad and a delicious peach cake that I’m still wishing we had leftovers of, it was a meal to remember.

Interesting work spaces

As a network geek, I find my “office for the day” can be located in some of the most interesting spots around campus.  The first photo is from an elevator/mechanical room while troubleshooting a radio link.  The second photo is from an electrical/mechanical room while provisioning access points for deployment.

The Wolf Among Us

I fell in love with this game’s art when I saw it. At $8 during the Steam summer sale, I scored pretty good.

HEB has really been stepping up their selection of beers.  Both of these are quite delicious and perfect for enjoying a summer afternoon…..or morning if that’s what you’re into ;)

I get notified by SMS when certain conditions happen (eg: equipment stops responding or an interface goes over a threshold). Today I woke up to 100’s of messages.  Looks like it’s going to be a fun day!

Share A Coke?

While at work I passed a Coke machine that had a “Share a Coke” showing with a certain name of interest.  I pointed this out to a co-worker who fed the machine money and put in the corresponding input (C-4) to get the “JANE” Coke.

Much to our disappointment, the little robot-conveyor thing went to C-5 and gave us “RICK” instead!  We tried again and it went to C-6 for “STEVE”.

I am not sure if all of these machines are programmed this way but this particular machine seemed to be programmed like as such: “C1-C5 = coke. If user asks for Coke, dispense from next product slot that has Coke”.  I am used to the machine dispensing the product from the location I keyed in.

Lesson: Don’t bother trying to buy a specifically named coke out of one of these vending machines.

Tonight’s Super Moon

Jennifer and I headed out to snap a shot of the super moon tonight.  It sure was pretty.
