  5. Job here in CH doing grid computing for CERN's LHC

    I think they're on to the people wanting to make black holes for nefarious reasons now. I figured Seattle is a good place to post this because of its high geeks that climb mountains quotient.
  6. Beyond The Mountain - Steve House

    Maybe in some future life when I've been assigned a better body.

    If you get a chance, head out to Nowra.

    Nice job, Mike. I'll have the wife pick up a copy when she's back in the US next May.
  11. Paul Bailey accident

    The Grampians are down in Victoria. The Blue Mtns are in New South Wales.
  12. Signing off....to Switzerland

    I'll try to pull it off. I managed to find some local guide books the other day and there's huge amounts of stuff around Lake Como that just looks sweet. Oddly enough, no one I work with climbs. There's one ex climber dude but no one else. I've never been around such a collection of techie types with no climbers amongst them. Plenty of bikers and semi-Italian girlies though.
  13. Signing off....to Switzerland

    Yeah, I glanced at a gun shop that I happened to pass by and about had an aneurysm. Thinking maybe I SHOULD have imported something along with my personal effects. The other hilarious thing (at least, to someone like me who grew up around guns and then spent way too much time in places like Boston, SF, and Seattle), there's an outdoor gun range right next to the parking lot of the big grocery store that we go to. I'm thinking "Oh, that would have gone over really swell in Redmond."
  14. Signing off....to Switzerland

    You know...sadly...I have no clue. I've got more than enough to do so that I'm largely unaware of the whole thing (like spending half my days in Italian classes). I'm sure that'll change soon enough.
  15. Signing off....to Switzerland

    So, I'm down in Switzerland now and do have one of the above show black Speed Triples (should show up here sometime around Oct 10 or so). During the obligatory trip to IKEA (the only place you can really afford furniture around here....and, yes, we did buy a sofa bed) i discovered a sporting goods place with a fair number of local climbing guides to start me drooling. Ski season should start soon enough...woot!
