Letter to AT&T inspired by their performance in Prudhoe Bay, AK

13 May, 2011 (20:41) | Decategorizable | 1 comment

Hi, I work in Prudhoe Bay, AK. It is an oilfield. A very unique area indeed. We are at work more than half of our lives and use/depend on our phones to a high degree. In my case I am 700 miles from home while at work. Most folks working here are farther away from […]

Light House Hangout – way overdue

11 July, 2009 (21:10) | Decategorizable |

Well yeah I haven’t posted since January. Why do you ask? Fact is I’ve been a little short on enthusiasm for everything, not just this blog. Many a time I have looked at the page with it’s dusty old post and sighed. And I didn’t do anything about it. My work took a turn away […]

Trust me! (Podcasts and Podcast Novels you should hear)

18 January, 2009 (20:05) | Decategorizable |

I really like podcast novels and some podcasts. I think you should like them too. Or at least check them out to see if you like them or no. How does a podcast work? This has been answered a gazillion times on the web. The short answer is that an essentially radio show is recorded […]

Light and the flight from Prudhoe to reality

Yeah yeah yeah. So I haven’t posted for months. I knew I’d get around to something interesting sooner or later. I just haven’t been feeling all that interesting in recent times The sun hasn’t been up in Prudhoe Bay since late November. No it’s not pitch dark but still there is no sunup. Not till […]

End of an age, or at least end of a nice summer.

It’s been a nice summer in Prudhoe Bay. Certainly better weather than Southcentral AK. I took a few pics worth sharing. I’m geeky enough to think 360 panoramas can be cool. So I hacked out a few shot in July. Just getting around to posting now? What’s up with that? I was having a bit […]

7th Son Obsidian Project

29 August, 2008 (12:31) | Decategorizable |

Backstory: JC Hutchins wrote and podcasted his excellent trilogy, “7th Son”. You can get it at his site or I highly recommend it. It’s a scifi tech thriller adventure rollercoaster fun ride. Very well done. Two small aspects of the storyline are that part of it happens in the arctic oilfields and the bad […]

House crimes

28 August, 2008 (12:03) | Decategorizable |

It all started when I found the dead parrot in my inventory… Nika & Keeme had just recently landed what they called their Crime House. They used to “borrow” the available prims of someone’s land and rezz their house at some high altitude. After using it they’d leave and un-rezz the house, freeing up those […]

Ever wonder what a nice day in Prudhoe Bay is like?

7 August, 2008 (19:09) | Decategorizable |

It’s probably not what you think. The weather is very changeable but on a nice July evening it’s sweet. This is a 360 panorama near Pump 1. A stone’s throw from the Arctic Ocean. You can see the two 1 million gallon tanks and the start of the Trans Alaska Pipeline on the right. In […]
