So all this week I've been on a business trip. The highlight of the trip came this afternoon where I got to take the following video....

Incredible. How did you get this job? (aside from years of education...)

Nice test fire. It could fool someone on the other side of the hill that a volcano just blew. ;-)

I like my Job too. Not quite a big dramatic show, but over half of the users of SF are using what I helped design. It has something to do with what is between your keyboard and the Internet.

I think you need to do some looking at D Hall's previous threads.

I wish my job involved blotting out the sun... Not quite as clean as an oxy-hydrogen engine test is it :) ?


Also, that old news video about IRC networks you posted was hilarious.

Not quite, but an oxy-hydrogen engine would have been pretty dirty too. Much of that cloud wasn't smoke, but was rather debris that simply got picked up. Shortly after I put the camera away the cloud was over the top of us and it was raining sand and pebbles.

So when people ask me what I wanna do when I grow up, I can sound dignified :D :D :D
