Evil Clown

Can't party, clown will eat me!


FUN



No, he's not creepy at all!




I was recently working on a project to migrate a school district's computers from Novell to Active Directory.  While walking about a high school late one night searching for machines that failed to migrate, I entered a darkened classroom.  I shined my flashlight about the room, and suddenly illuminated a bed with a body in it!

This is what the room looked like when brightly lit, imagine what it would look like in the dark with just a pocket flashlight.

Next door to the district support center was a rail car repair facility.  One of the cars they had in their yard was from the long defunct Ashley, Drew & Northern Railway.  This boxcar has clearly seen better days.

The facility also had the cutest little locomotive.  It's an EMC SW1 switcher, built in 1939 for the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy.  I couldn't get a good photo of it because it was always behind a row of boxcars, but here's what it looks like.

Push Button.  Receive Bacon.  Eat Bacon.



When I see "SDSU", I think San Diego State University, not South Dakota.



Someone had an inflatable bear named Snowflake.

I finally found a use for a Mac Mini.
