Nanook Documents Global Warming

They can run the Iditerod here!

This is my wife, Tina, standing on the street in front of our house.
The white blobs are snow illuminated by the camera flash, the orange blob
is a street light up the street about a block. You can see the tree limbs
of the trees behind her with all the limbs drooping from the weight of the
snow.I took this at approximately 5AM before it was light on February 16th,
2001. Last night’s weather report said we’d get up to two inches. At 5AM
was had six inches, now at 6:30AM it’s up to eight inches.
If I attempt to take a picture using flash, it just illuminates the snow
unless what is behind it is really bright or fairly close.
This is a picture of a neighbors driveway and car. It’s fuzzy because I
couldn’t use flash because the snow reflecting off as demonstrated in the
picture to the left and I didn’t have a tripod so it was difficult to hold
steady for the longer exposure required for a night time shot. The
lighting here is just illumination from neighors porch lights and
street lights.
This is a pictures of a neighbors roof, the “grey” part is the edge of the
sophet, about eight inches thick. The white on top of it, the snow. As
you can see the snow is nearly as thick.

I wanted to document the depth, and so took this picture but of coarse
didn’t notice the ruler was backwards until I unloaded the camera. It
still indicates the depth however as it’s a 12 inch ruler. It was six
inches on the deck railing as of 5AM. About eight now at 7AM.

This is the corner of the roof where the telephone cable attaches. That
thick thing with the snow on it is the cable. Again this is taken just
with available light, the orange tints are from sodium vapor lamps and the
blue from mercury vapor and fluorescent lighting used in various
porch lights, etc.

The camera really is capable of taking clearer night shots but I didn’t
have a tripod handy and couldn’t hold it sufficiently steady by hand.

MalwareBytes – Support Beyond and Above

     Yeah, I get that it’s usually above and beyond.  In this case it was beyond really what they had any obligation to do, this was a free version on a machine that is 16 years old, and it was above the support I have gotten from anyone else.

     A recent update of MalwareBytes wouldn’t install on an old machine I use for testing and gaming.  The problems is that they had compiled it to use SSE2 instructions my old Athlon P2400 didn’t have. The 32-bit Athlon processors lacked these.

     I sent an e-mail to and within 24 hours they had a patch for me that fixed two affected files so the most recent version would again run on my machine.

     MalwareBytes is a tool I’ve used for years because easily 9-out-of-10 malware infections I’ve had to deal with, it has found and eliminated for me.
