Snow
Camping in it of course! After work today I will leave for a the second winter camping trip this year. 6 of use are scheduled to depart, assuming no one else bails. We originally had 8 people. We have choosen Manning Provincial Park which is located in south western british columbia.

Last week went tried to camp just north of Vancouver near Whistler. Being the adventerous types, we plainly ignored the "heavy snow fall warning" that was issued the night before. Needless to say it was an interesting trip. The road was closed multiple times, with a 25 car pile-up to start off the day.

We left early enough to get to our destination, but spent most of the day waiting in lines. Just an hour or so before dark, we decided to turn around and go back to a spot which we saw on the way up. There just wasn't any way to tell how long it would take to get to our original destination.

We ended up staying overnight just inside Black Tusk/Garibaldi Provincial park. It was fun, but we will be better prepared this week. This time we will remember to bring the beer.

Diagrams
A co-worker drew some technical diagrams on his whiteboard. But from a distance they meshed into what looked like a flying seal. I wonder what this is trying to tell me? Tried taking a picture but the batteries died on the cam.
Kernel
Got an email from the higher ups today, seems that I may be doing some kernel hacking in the near future. Should be interesting as I havn't had a chance to physically swim in this pond yet. Fortunately I've been reading quite a few docs on kernel hacking and taking a peek or two at the source. But we will see how far we get.
