OlderGuy: Real Women Drink Akvavit: yobbery: OlderGuy: I guess no PW on the secondarys yet....

No, they're locked down. However after thinking about it I think I know how this may have happened.
Up to this point I've been managing access lists to restrict traffic in and out of those subnets. About a month ago a new guy in security was having trouble allowing traffic in to a specific host. He didn't know I was using access lists. I bet he loaded a rule set and then when he pulled it out he forgot to set it back to permit all traffic.

lysdexic: This week was close.

Yeah, it really blows when nothing seems to go right and it's all because of stupid shiat. It's never anything exciting like an equipment fire.

As someone who has worked in kitchens for the overwhelming majority of her life, I am kinda an expert in that department. Believe me when I say you totally don't want any of that type of excitement. Ever.

Awww, come on.... you mean you don't enjoy cleaning up all the yellow powder blown everywhere?


I did enjoy spraying it. Called it "the reverse flamethrower" to give it militaristic qualities in my own mind. I left the clean up to the dish room crew, which totally worked out because when a fire starts in the dish room in a bare corner where there is not even a cable for any equipment, it kind of tells you that they did something they will never admit or tell, but means they also will say nothing while being compared to an incredibly unintelligent and very ugly horse penis in Norwegian at high volume while they are cleaning it up. It was one of the perks of the job, I guess. Also, I did not realize I could swear like a Viking that easily when I was really mad until it came out of my mouth like that.

Diocletian's Last Cabbage: lilyspad: Doctor Fegg: It's funny, but I remember you posting other pictures of your three cuties before because of their unique names. How can anyone forget an adorable cat named Spot with the spot in the middle of the forehead? :D I am always so tickled when lurkers come out of hiding & post pictures of their little sweeties

Yeah, I found Caturday I think about the time the current tag was made. Mostly lurked for a few years, I've been posting sporadically since last summer. My wife lurks on Caturday every weekend as well. As a long time lurker here, I would encourage others who haven't taken the plunge, to jump on in.

Yeah...we don't bite....much. :D

WE don't bite, not sure about 'pad   ;-{D


But we've all had our rabies shots so its all good :)

catmandu: Oh noes, I have a teenager in the house! Hector is 10 months old now (the equivalent of 13-14 in human years) and is really acting like a teen. He is stubborn and willful and a real brat. There is one place I don't let him go: the space between my desk and the printer table where all of the cords and powerstrips are. Of course, he goes there every chance he gets and when he gets pulled out by the scruff, he jumps right back in. He has already pulled cords out of my computer and turned a powerstrip off. He also loves water and enjoys getting sprayed by the "Bad Kitty" bottle. I found an alternative that works:

[i283.photobucket.com image 265x300]

You just have to remember to not spray it at the face. A good shot to the side or back end works just as well (I think the sound is just as deterring as the blast of air). He knows enough now to get out of there if I grab the can, I don't even need to spray it.

This morning I was on the toilet when he brought his fuzzy ball in. I grabbed it and threw it and he brought it in again. We actually played fetch for a couple of minutes, with him dropping the ball at my feet each time, until Mika decided to grab the ball and run off with it.
No new pictures. He doesn't stay still long enough.


Great minds think alike! Gogh doesn't love water or anything, but when he's banging on the door to the Super Secret Lair of Infinite Doom while I am in here plotting world domination and destruction on a massive scale (in my room, taking a nap), I don't always want to OPEN the door or he will get in here. He's just that fast. Plus he uses his size to bulldoze everything in his path - including me. So I use
ecx.images-amazon.com
right under the door. The sound of something hissing!!! at him like that convinces him he really, really doesn't want to be anywhere near my door for the next hour or so, at least. However long it takes the horrible hiss monster to go away, anyway. That gives me a little bit more time to nap because yelling at the door doesn't work and he's impossible to sleep near because he insists on sleeping on your face. NO. Just NO.

Of course then he goes to the end of the hall and sings the plaintive song of sorrow, pain and loss known to his people since the dawn of time, but that's better than it sounding like there's a SWAT team made of midgets trying to bust through my door.

I'm trying to get done stuff I didn't do yesterday, and am cruising right along. The good thing about the "oh gods, kill me now" level of headache and sick I had yesterday means even though I am still unwell and still have a headache, it's calmed down enough I don't really mind having it. I know things could be much, much worse because they were yesterday. So of course I've got a couple batches of cookies done already, made and ate a breakfast and am taking a break before starting another batch of cookies or my coffee cake I need to make - I've not decided yet. So, catching up on yesterday, then I'll start today. Deal? DEAL!

Waaay too many sadz this week to go back through and pick them out by name. Just know that my heart goes out to each of you.

I made sure to give each of mine extra hugs today!

/Except Biscuit....he didn't get his yet because he's being a little shiat this morning.
//I'm trying to paint this stairway and although he thinks otherwise, he is not helping in the least.


I was trying to remove the caulk from around the tub in the guest bath yesterday morning, Tom jumped in the tub and began to purr up a storm. Then he watched me for a moment and began biting the pieces of caulking and pulling on it with his teeth. He would drop most of it in the tub and then get another piece. I was afraid he would eat some of it as he has a history of eating things he shouldn't so I had to make him leave. He really tried to help, but home improvement with a cat is much harder than without a cat.

ProcrastinationStation: looong time lurker (im useless at posting pics, so I just follow along) checking in to offer condolences to Sherpa.  Ive been lurking so long I feel like I know Dragon, and I admit to shedding a tear upon learning of his passing.  Saturday mornings with a cup of coffee and Caturday were an integral part of my own cancer journey (FARK YOU CANCER! - almost 2 year breast cancer survivor YAY).....

My 16 year old furball enjoys reading Caturday threads with me and Im sure he will be saddened to learn this news. And he will get extra lubs and noms....  I know I too will face the dreaded bridge with him soon enough (will be my first go around with it and Im terrified of the day)....

hugs to all


Hugs right back to you. Don't dread the bridge. The Rainbow Bridge is actually Bifrost, which connects Asgard, where the gods dwell, to Midgard, where humans dwell. We know this because the lore calls Bifrost "the rainbow bridge". Bifrost is guarded by the great god Heimdall who will sound Gjallarhorn before the final battle. So imagine it - Heimdall is standing there, doing as he always does - throwing tennis balls and sticks for all the doggies that have made their way there over the years and always, always watching Midgard from his place at the end of the bridge. Suddenly, all the doggies stop playing and look across the bridge. The great god Heimdall looks up. Off in the distance, just on the other side of the bridge,a figure approaches! Heimdall raises Gjallarhorn to his lips and blows the mighty horn, the sound carrying across all of Asgard, raising the alarm.

Thor grabs his hammer, Odin his spear, Freyja readies her war chariot - all the gods and goddesses who live there stop what they're doing and prepare themselves for battle. The Einherjar leap from their feasting benches and grab their weapons, ready to march across Bifrost "600 abreast" and fight the approaching Jotun and dishonorable dead who have escaped the boundaries of Helheim. The figure draws nearer and all of Asgard is watching, ready to give it a greeting of steel and rage the likes of which have never been seen before.

But wait! There's no great army behind the figure. As it draws nearer still it seems the figure is actually quite small. Frigg narrows her eyes and stares intently at the small figure crossing the bridge, because she can see quite clearly what others can't. So far in fact, she can see things that haven't even happened yet. It takes her only one look to know who it is that approaches.

"it's a cat"

The divine assemblage relaxes and slowly makes their way back to their own halls. The day is not Ragnarok and we are safe from that doom for a bit longer yet.

Except one. Lady Freyja's cats - the two pulling her chariot - want to meet their friend and draw the Lady herself to give good greeting and offer hospitality to their newly arrived kin after his long and hard journey. She bends down and scratches behinds his ears and under his chin, picking him up and carrying him with her back to her own hall, Sessrumnir. Lady Freyja takes her seat once more and tells him "Welcome home, old friend. Will you tell us of your time in Midgard?" and all the countless cats who have gone before who now dwell with Lady Freyja sit and wait and listen. They sit like that for a long time, telling of their adventures, their victories and even their failures, but most importantly, they tell of those who they had to leave behind who gave them such love and care and who misses them so terribly. When all the stories are done, all the tales of deeds large and small have been heard, Lady Freyja smiles and says "Your human should have another companion to love them and love in return. Let's pick one for them." Then on that same day here in Midgard, another tiny soul with a heart bigger than even the moon wanders into your life with all the love and blessings of Asgard.

This has obviously been a very brutal Caturday for many people and my sincerest condolences go out to you all.

Unfortunately, it is with a very heavy and broken heart that I have to add to the list as I had to help my white boy over the bridge a few hours ago. As much as I did not want to let him go, I knew in my heart that it was time - and the very least I could do for my faithful friend of almost 18 years was not to make him suffer for my sake.

He was always there for me through the years since he was a kitten - through sickness, family issues, job changes, money problems, divorce and relocation - and all he ever asked for in return was a few chin scritches, a lap to purr on and his gooshy food (and of course the occasional spicy chicken wing).

I would like to believe that I saw gratitude in his eyes as I held him while he slipped away, acknowledging that I was trying to return the favor and be there and do what I believed in my heart what was best for him.

There will never be another cat as special to me as my white one was. I know you will all understand, because in a very real way, Dragon belonged as much to Caturday as he did to me.

Once again, I thank you all for the love and support you have provided to me and the late fuzzy white boy over these many years. You have enriched our lives with your humor, comments and captions, and for welcoming us into the best family we could ever hope to be a part of.

Rest in peace, my dearest friend. Daddy will always love you, and never forget you. I already miss you so much.


I don't know about the rest of you folks...
but as soon as the commodities market opening bell rings on Monday,
I'm selling short on Spicy Chicken Wing futures.

OK, I finally got pants AND socks on, so the grocery store run should happen any time now. I swear. Unless I decide to wear a skirt instead. I like skirts. Everyone knows chicks dig skirts.

Real Women Drink Akvavit: yobbery: OlderGuy: I guess no PW on the secondarys yet....

No, they're locked down. However after thinking about it I think I know how this may have happened.
Up to this point I've been managing access lists to restrict traffic in and out of those subnets. About a month ago a new guy in security was having trouble allowing traffic in to a specific host. He didn't know I was using access lists. I bet he loaded a rule set and then when he pulled it out he forgot to set it back to permit all traffic.

lysdexic: This week was close.

Yeah, it really blows when nothing seems to go right and it's all because of stupid shiat. It's never anything exciting like an equipment fire.

As someone who has worked in kitchens for the overwhelming majority of her life, I am kinda an expert in that department. Believe me when I say you totally don't want any of that type of excitement. Ever.


I work in IT, software developer, and at my last job I got a somewhat frantic call from an accountant saying he had a problem and although I wasn't a help desk person I'd written the last update to his system so could I come and see what was going on. When I got to his office there was an acrid smell before I even opened the door - his PC was on fire. Actual smoke and flames coming from under the desk. I fetched an extinguisher from the corridor and put it out. When I asked him why he didn't just do that himself and hit the fire alarm he said it was an IT thing and he thought he should call us first. This guy has a degree, a mortgage, a family, a car - how does he even manage to operate on a day to day basis?

/that's my fire in the workplace story.

**  DRAGON UPDATE  **

So far so good! The white boy is still hanging tough, he decimated his chicken wing last night, and seems to be comfortable - although it is still taking him an extended period of time to urinate (but he IS urinating) he is eating, drinking, and he just  interrupted my trying to type this with a massive cuddle/purr session. He also spent about 20 minutes grooming himself after dinner - also a good sign.

While I have not yet gotten caught up on the entire thread (lots of comments I have to respond to) I once again want to stop and thank everyone for their support, it means the world to both of us.

Yay caturday!
Boo, hiss on cancer and four footers being ill. One of my best friends is putting herself into a hospice next week.

I was much better this week myself, but had to laugh. A neighbor was just released back into her house from an assisted living place. Her first call was to me, begging for "any sort of smoked meat". I was just about to slice a pork butt for our dinner but had the teenager run it over to her. She called two hours later giving thanks but requesting I get her a duck, smoked fish, and a few other things. As well as calling at 6:30 this morning to remind me of her food needs.

On the far funnier side, "Panther explorer" our older alpha cat is getting old, no longer able to do the jumps he used to. But he still requires me to be available to sleep on. Yes, he runs the household. I have a large catnip garden every year. Panther discovered the hiding place last night and brought up a bag almost as heavy as he was that had catnip, toys, etc. This morning my wife woke up and was in hysterics, waking up Panther and myself. The bed was strewn with dried catnip, his majesty was curled up in my arms and snoring. Panther and I both just gave her the evil eye, I rolled over and Panther curled up next to me after giving a half hiss to her. Which caused much more laughter. Panther was still upset when the neighbor called and then curled up with his behind close to my face as he does to show displeasure. More wife laughter. Never marry a dog person.

John Buck 41: My little girl needs a trip to the vet tomorrow. We noticed symptoms yesterday. She won't jump or get on her hind legs and 'do paws', can't go up or down stairs, keeps her tail tucked down all the time, sometimes whimpers when she tries to lie down, yelps when she moves suddenly, and her poops are very short and thin (though not necessarily runny). She's almost 9. Hopefully just a bug and nothing serious but Mrs. Buck and I are concerned. If the Caturday gang could toss a good thought towards Jazzy it'd be much appreciated. Thank you.

YAY CATURDAY!

Just logged out from a sucky 90 minute marathon at work. I need to vent....

I was adding a new vlan and subnet to our core routers and distrubution switches. We have redundant equipment and run VRRP (which is identical to HSRP in Cisco terms). I was adding the config it to a secure segment which is to be firewalled (also redundant).
So I dump my scripts into all four devices and everything looks great, but I can't get the secondary router to respond. After burning my eyes out going over the same stuff ad nauseum I get the local engineer on the phone. After 30 minutes he can't find anything wrong either. Everything shows that it's up. I then discover that I can't get to many of the secondary interfaces that reside on the secure segment.

Turns out that someone was playing with the new firewall in front of the secondary router and must have loaded a rule set. We're not ready to configure them yet and they're supposed to be running in full passive mode.....apparently not anymore. So add to my loooong list of shiat to do tomorrow the fact that I'll need to spend lord knows how much time with the security team to get this sorted out.

Sorry for the totally geeky wall of text. I had to let that out.
