This is one of those “It’s funny cuz it’s true” things…
So thanks to the fine work of Texas Department of Transportation, two of the wheels on the Acura were bent pretty badly, and a third wheel was bent a little bit.
Acura is a little too proud of their OEM wheels, so there was no way I could afford to buy three of them, and having the wheels straightened was more expensive than many custom wheels and could leave the wheel in a weakened state.
So, I spent a few days combing the net for deals on wheels. After much deliberation, a new set of pretty wheels has been put on the Acura. I was a little worried since it’s hard to tell what they will look like once you actually put them on the car. I’m happy to report though that they look better than I thought they would.
Check ’em out…
As promised here’s some more shots of the snow storm from later in the day. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to go out looking for actual “good” shots, this is just what I took standing in front of the house.
I missed opportunity for some awesome photos, for sure. But this will give you an idea of how much it was snowing. It was coming down like this for pretty much the entire day! Unheard of here…
I think this will only work in Solaris 10, but this should give a nice output of how many Physical CPUs, Physical Cores, and Threads [Virtual CPUs] are recognized by Solaris. This will work on Solaris 10 for SPARC or x86.
Note: I’m told that the script gives strange results when run in an LDOM. I don’t have any LDOMs to test with and I’m not really familiar with them. The script was meant to be run in the global zone. It does give proper results in an un-capped local zone.
The output looks like this:
In host.example.com there are:
1 Physical CPUs/Sockets
8 Physical Cores across all CPUs
8 Cores per Physical CPU
64 Total virtual CPUs recognized by the OS
8 Threads per Core (Virtual CPUs per Core)

Ok, I couldn’t pass this one up. This is for all you high-school teachers out there!
After a whopping 2 hours sleep [for me], Kiera and I got up and joined her class for a trip to Fossil Rim, in Glen Rose, TX. In spite of being horribly tired, we had a good time. Here are some pictures from the trip.
Kiera’s favorite was the Cheetahs, which unfortunately I don’t have any good pictures of. But I did have a Giraffe eat out of my hand. It scared Kiera and she jumped in the back and hid in the floorboard. :)
You’ll notice several pictures of two animals fighting at the end of the gallery. These guys were going at it for at least 5 minutes. Sadly I didn’t have a video camera, but I think I got some good shots out of them.
