In the spirit of @sehurlburt on Twitter: I'm always open to helping with questions about systems engineering, network engineering, DNS, SRE, working at Google, working in the infosec business, starting a business without VC, or anything else you can think of!

I'm Tim. I'm a geek. I love systems, networks, and software. I started DynDNS.org (now dyn.com, an Oracle company, of which I have no part). I now work at Google. All opinions are my own.

Bitcoin is fun to play with. Tor is becoming more and more important with each passing day. Crypto isn't just for nerds anymore.

The world's political situation is scary. Does anyone have any rocks I can hide under?

The SAC Museum’s B-17 is in beautifully restored condition… And their B-52 looks like it has hardly been touched after sitting outside for years. Odd difference.

Woo Edwin Link and Binghamton represent at the SAC Museum!

I forgot how much we put nukes in everything during the cold war. Even a missile designed to take out air defenses in front of a B-52 had a nuclear warhead on it.

Any recommendations for my weekend plans in the Omaha, NE area?

I'm definitely going to sacmuseum.org/ because it looks AWESOME. The Omaha Zoo has also been recommended to me. Considering the Council Bluffs Squirrel Cage Jail (thehistoricalsociety.org/museu) but not sure if it's too silly.

Tell me things I should see! I have a car.

Why is it that billers of all sorts (credit card companies, utility companies, you name it) just refuse to tell you in your e-statement e-mail that you have auto-pay turned on so you can ignore it?

I did and saw many things. I can tell you about none of them. This makes me sad.

Datacenter day 1 report: still as awesome as I had hoped. Google now has many pictures of my eyes. I hope they don't sell these beautiful baby blues.

On second thought maybe they're elephants.

I mean, I guess by definition they're going to sleep before I am, 'cause I ain't gonna sleep with this noise...

There are some very active children in the room above mine. I really hope they're going to sleep before I am.

OMG Ikea's idea of e-commerce is even worse than their furniture instructions.

On the plus side I got in and out very quickly and efficiently and in a 7 passenger Dodge Journey instead of the booked mid-size, so, winning I guess?

Also the Dodge Journey has both Texas plates and a snow brush.

They think they're funny... but they've just frightened me.

I am frightened by a restaurant named "Quaker Steak and Lube"

OMA "rental car facility" aka parking lot with single wide trailers.

Rental car shuttle at OMA just went too close to the construction fence and creamed the driver’s side mirror. Whoops.

But who are they quoting?!?

The luggage carts at Omaha have little snow plows on them, aren’t they cute?
