Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons (Blue Lodge)
At the core of Freemasonry is the Blue Lodge. All Freemasons belong to at least one. Failure to maintain membership in a Blue Lodge will result in suspension or expulsion from all other Masonic bodies.
The first three degree in Masonry are conferred in the Blue Lodge.
Today is Pungenday, the 50th day of Discord in the YOLD 3178
“Y-M-C-A!” *bonk* Wrong disco, idiot.
I needed to fix a date formatting problem wherein the ddate(1) command in Linux would print dates like the “11st” or “12nd” of a given season. I downloaded the source tarball from here and edited the only file in it, ddate.2.0.c. I changed line 97 from this:

Today, when I su’d to root on my webserver, I noticed that today was Chaoflux:
CentOS release 5.7 (Final) Today is Setting Orange, the 50th day of Chaos in the YOLD 3178 Celebrate Chaoflux
So today, go out and sew the seeds of constructive chaos and delightful discord! And remember, no hot dog buns!
Some asshat spraypainted a sauwastika (backward Swastika, used in old forms of Hinduism) inside a Star of David with the words “I’m Shit.” on the side of the West Allis Masonic Temple yesterday. I’d be glad to be insulted if I had a clue what it meant. Apparently Jewish Hindus are shit? But what does that have to do with Masonry? AFAIK, we don’t have any Jewish Hindus in West Allis Lodge.
So I’ve undertaken a Christian chivalric order: Knight Hospitaller or Knight of Malta.
After dustpuppy decided to cease functioning, I was unable to copy the pics off of my phone. Until now.
…my router. I’m now running Toastman’s Tomato on an Asus RT-N16. I decided to go with a single band router for 2 reasons, the first being cost. Dual-banders, with the features I wanted, cost half again as much. The second is that there’s not a single PC here (I think) that supports the 5 GHz band, and all but 2 support N. The first thing I noticed is that this thing has a ton more available memory, there are people out there that managed to put an anti-virus program on it, set it up for use as a server, use it for torrenting, getting stuff off of usenet, and so forth. So, it goes without saying that since I’m just using it as an AP, the thing is damned near rock solid. The only hiccups were when, every 3rd or so reboot, it will throttle down one particular PC, regardless of whether or not it was using one wireless card or another. But, it’s been up now for about a month and everything works. So now it’s time for some tweaking!
I got my Royal Arch Mason degree at the Racine Masonic Center today. Here are pics:
