In logs we trust

It’s a mess. The NYT wrote a fairly scathing review of the new Tesla roadster, and Tesla fires back (summary here).  Both sides have – or feel that they have – a lot at stake here.  It would appear that there’s simply no way of telling who is telling the truth, since the system that generates the Tesla data is proprietary and who in the hell knows how it […]

I’d been asked about my 2nd CFT proposal… here it is, in all it’s wordy glory: darpa-reduxxx.   Thanks as always to the DARPAnians and Mudge for the opportunity. Thanks to my IPMI paper sucking my life away I’m behind schedule, but it was always an excuse to play with and understand the tech, not make money.  Well, it’s not like I’m a monk, I like money, but there […]

I realize this is a bit old now… but I keep coming back to it. For posterity.  A wise sage once said: There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — [pauses] — shame on you. Fool me — [pauses] — You can’t get fooled again. I really do wonder how he got elected […]
