Time to bump up that goal! Time to bump up that goal! Update #3 June 22, 2021 Since ticket sales have been so good and we were nearly almost to our initial goal of $2,000 (thank you Matt Bombeck and the Bombeck Family for the lion's share of donations!), I've decided to bump up the goal. This pr...
This is our fundraising event to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation. If you can't make it to the show, we hope you will consider making a donation via Carolyn's fundraising page:
Introduction to Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End at the historic Crighton Theatre in downtown Conroe.
This burns my butter! Everyone is out to make a buck. We're producing this show to make a buck for the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation. Unfortunately, there are 3rd party ticketing websites that are also making a buck on this show. I've found at least 2 (Vivid Seats and Ticketfaster) that are selling tickets to Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End for rediculous prices. They sell the ticket and then go to the Crighton website and purchase a ticket for a fraction of what they were paid. These 3rd party sites DO NOT have my permission to sell tickets to the show and I have told them and still they are persisting. PLEASE - DO NOT BUY TICKETS FROM 3RD PARTY TICKETING WEBSITES! Buy tickets through the Crighton Theatre box office only either online at www.crightontheatre.org or by calling the box office 936-441-7469.
Great news! Generous donors are going to match all donations made to the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation made during the month of June. This means every dollar we donate from our production of Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End will be doubled! Profits from ticket sales and concessions will be donated so get those tickets at www.crightontheatre.org or by calling 936-441-7469. If you can't make it to the show, we hope you'll consider making a donation via Carolyn's fundraising page: https://support.pkdcure.org/fundraiser/3156586

What did Erma Bombeck have to say about motherhood? Plenty! In addition to calling it the ‘Second Oldest Profession’ she also wrote the following essay:
“When God Created Mothers"
When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of "overtime" when the angel appeared and said. "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."
And God said, "Have you read the specs on this order?" She has to be completely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts...all replaceable. Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she stands up. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair. And six pairs of hands."
The angel shook her head slowly and said. "Six pairs of hands.... no way."
It's not the hands that are causing me problems," God remarked, "it's the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have."
That's on the standard model?" asked the angel. God nodded.
One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, 'What are you kids doing in there?' when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say. 'I understand and I love you' without so much as uttering a word."
“God," said the angel touching his sleeve gently, "Get some rest tomorrow....”
“I can't," said God, "I'm so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick...can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger...and can get a nine year old to stand under a shower."
The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed.
“But tough!" said God excitedly. "You can imagine what this mother can do or endure."
Can it think?"
Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise," said the Creator.
Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.
“There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model."
“It's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear."
“What's it for?"
“It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride."
“You are a genius, "said the angel.
Somberly, God said, "I didn't put it there.”
Rest in peace, Erma Bombeck. Your work is still making us smile.
Did you know.....Erma was a tap dancer! Her mother thought little Erma could be the next Shirley Temple and enrolled her in a tap dancing school at 5 yrs old. Erma and her half sister Thelma would become part of a tap dance troupe that performed on the Kiddie Review radio show (yes, tap dancing on the radio). This photo, along with many others used with permission, are courtesey of the Erma Bombeck Collection at the University of Dayton and will be projected on a large screen as part of the production of Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End. Come see Erma's amazing life story play out on the stage and see images of the real Erma herself on the screen. Show dates: June 25-27. Tickets available at www.crightontheatre.org or by calling the box office at 936-441-7469.

See you in 2021!
Hope all the moms had a great Mother's Day!
A very timely quote.
It was quiet, she thought— the woman walking through the hilly cemetery at dusk— a quiet that announced itself, somehow, mixing in the light streams reflecting and yawning off Miami Valley Hospital’s windows; magenta and canary— cerulean, too— all spilling through the dust and shadows and ...

Are you crazy?! Why would anyone want multiple instances of Excel open? Isn't one enough? For a person, one is plenty. However, if you are running macros that take a long time you might want to run multiple macros simultaneously to cut your time down. Then you can take advantage of all the CPU cores...
Back to basics. What is money? Money is a medium of exchange that we all agree to accept it in making transactions. At the current time we accept flat money that has no intrinsic value per se except that it is declared by governments to have value or to be used in transactions.
Recently we posted an article about building a petaflop cluster for volunteer computing. The design relied heavily on GPUs or graphics cards to get the overall cost down. Only one problem: supply. In particular, cryptominers have driven the prices of GPUs up to almost double the list price - if you....
Why?! The first petaflop computer - IBM Roadrunner - achieved that status some ten years ago on May 25, 2008. So what are you really accomplishing? The goal of building a petaflop computer is non-trivial since it cannot be done in a single node or computer – at least for now. If you have unlimited...
March 14 is Pi day. I have no clue why. Maybe third month, 14th day - 3.14. Hmm. What is the fascination with this transcendental number? If you are interested, we have created a color coded poster of Pi. Each digit has a different color. The digits were generated via computer program. These days th...
So we connected all the networking wiring. Split up the power cords so that we don't trip any electrical circuits. Made sure we had enough cooling to keep the CPU from cooking. How does the DIY cluster from used parts fare?
When I was younger I was the taught the KISS principle: keep in simple. In the case of computers, that usually meant stay with the operating system that is most useful. If you need another operating system, get a separate machine.
Instrumentation, metrics, and processes generally go hand in hand. To the uninitiated it may seem that modern technology can answer almost any question. The reality is that many times we cannot measure what we want but must settle for an indirect measurement. Furthermore, human psychology is such th...
If you happen to be fortunate enough to work for a company with significant financial resources (i.e. Fortune 500 company) then you likely have access to dedicated HPC computing facilities and software that has been optimized for company use. However, if you work for a smaller company or even a youn...
We think in terms of general purpose computing. Why? Special purpose computing over the years has been an expensive way for getting performance. With the advent of mass produced graphics cards (GPU), it is possible to take advantage of economies of scale. But can they be used for work related applic...
I am a quantitative kid of person. If there is a way to get information that will lead to a better answer - whether through modeling or data collection - I'm all in.
Monte Carlo simulations have been around for many years as a tool to quantify uncertainty. They are easy enough to program given an appropriate model. Yet Monte Carlo can give you a false sense of security that you understand your problem better than you really do.
Face recognition is an interesting challenge. You can find test databases but in general they will be small. The large databases are held by large corporations (i.e. Google, Facebook, etc.). So how does one obtain access to a large testbed? You can find a face recognition page dedicated to available...
