Oh Joy - More snow tonight, tomorrow, and then again this weekend...

By Andrew Pollack on 12/19/2007 at 06:28 PM EST
I like snow, but enough is enough - its only December! We're set up for another 6-10 inches of fresh snow tonight. That will make something like 25-30 inches in the last two weeks. Our winter doesn't usually get started this way. December in Maine is not normally a heavy snow month. Its a few cold days and some warm ones, with January getting really cold and February being our big snow month. No so this year!

I'm off to get my stuff together, we're staffing the station again tonight -- the third time this week.

Yeah you and me both, I'm supposed to head down to Boston in the morning to fly
to Texas, I think I'll drive down tonight now. I still have about a foot and a
half from all the other snows. I think I read somewhere that we've already had
more snow this December than the whole snow season last/this year.

By the way, thanks for posting that entry about the chains, I often saw them
hanging below heating oil trucks and had assumed they were static discharge or
something, very cool, snow chains.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......

This piece of garbage is supposed to be a bearing. It carries the shaft which drives both stages of the auger. The shaft passes through the bearing (which is what bearings do) after the auger drive pulley as the shaft goes through the back (engine ......
