Walking the 3 Day and boy, do I need help!!!

By Tig2 ·
So it turns out that I WILL be walking the 3 Day again- or trying to. Once again, I am looking to my TR peers in the hope that you will continue to support my effort in raising funds and awareness about breast cancer. Join me and get pink! (Yes, JD. Real men DO get pink!)

Long timers know this, new friends may not. The 3 Day is a walk- 60 miles over three consecutive days, with the goal of raising money and awareness about breast cancer. This will be the fourth time I have made this trip.

Every year, approximately 175.000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Every year, approximately 40.000 die. What we know is that the earlier it is caught and treated, the greater chance to survive. What isn't generally known is that 4,000 men die every year too. This is not a disease linked to gender, it is an equal opportunity killer. I think that it is time to stop it in it's tracks. Long since time.

I am a survivor since 2003. I believe that there is a cure out there somewhere. I walk in order to provide the monetary resources to find that cure and to spread awareness. But I also walk to celebrate the lives of the women and men who have lost their fight. You can help in that effort too. PM me the name of a person you would like to have honored over the three days of the walk. I will carry that person on a ribbon with me for all 60 miles. I'll even send you their ribbon at the end of the walk.

I am also offering the hottest thing since the TR mug- which we can all agree has become a tad ho-hum since Soni has been so efficient at getting them out. I am offering to hand paint the glass adult beverage container of your choice with a pink ribbon and anything else you specify. Alternatively, I will send you a pendant filled with hopes and dreams. You will need to send me an address but that really is the easy part.

Nick- your glass is already in the works. But more money might get you two! Be the very first to own two!!!

Breast cancer is a disease that has over-stayed its welcome. Join me in stomping it out.

Thank you all. Thank you so very much.

Second pot brewing now

Out late last night, store down, nothing pings. Found a tripped breaker for the server rack. Ultimate cause was new equipment installation that resulted in seven 1500VA UPS on a single 20A circuit. :0 :0 Moved two UPS to a different circuit, no problems. B-)

Think I'm going to recommend to the customer that he split the circuit...

Demanding a clean circuit

by jdclyde In reply to Second pot brewing now

had a location repeatedly go off-line, and couldn't for the life of us figure out why. Change equipment, test equipment, it all worked.

Oh, where does this cable come from? Oh, someone poked a hole in the wall and ran a cable to the industrial coffee pot and plugged it into the power strip the network equipment was plugged into? I clipped the end off, they were not pleased. B-)

This is a clean circuit

by NickNielsen In reply to Demanding a clean circuit

Isolated ground, filtered, the whole bit.

There just isn't enough capacity on that 20A circuit for the 30A of everything they want to put on it. Thing is, there are three circuits in the computer room, but only one for the equipment rack!

I wish corporate IT and facilities people would actually communicate instead of just talking to each other.
