A friend and I decided to take our hand at homebrewing beer. After doing a bit research we found a local wine making and beer brewing supply shop, <a href="http://winecraftatl.com/">Wine Craft of Atlanta</a>, and decided to venture over and check it out. The shop owner, Rick Adams (and his wife Peggy whom we haven't met yet), was extremely helpful and put up with our countless questions on how homebrewing works, what to buy, what not to buy, etc., and we left with a beer starter equipment kit and an English Pale Ale ingredient kit. I'm usually one to buy everything online to save some money, but not knowing exactly what to buy Rick's advice was priceless and his prices were roughly the same if not cheaper than the stores online, especially when not having to pay for shipping.

I've hosted a <a href="http://cameronstokes.com/gallery/">photo gallery</a> in some form or fashion on my site for about as long as I've had my own domain. I first used <a href="http://gallery.menalto.com/">Gallery</a> and switched to <a href="http://www.zenphoto.org/">zenphoto</a> sometime last year for reasons I can't remember now. Having close to 7,000 photos as of this post I was using up a lot of disk space on my host and was close to running out of available space. 7,000 photos isn't an excessive amount but when each full-size photo is roughly 2 MB, it adds up. I decided the best way to free up space was to resize all of the photos down to the default view size of zenphoto and not allow the full-size versions to be viewed online. A quick test showed this would reduce the average photo down to about 100 KB, a significant reduction.

Despite temperatures dipping into single digits only 2 weeks ago and a supposed 6 more weeks of Winter according to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groundhog_Day">Punxsutawney Phil</a>, it really looks and feels like Spring is on the way. The past week has really warmed up and there is new growth on many of the plants in my yard, even some daylilies peaking out of the ground.

I ran out of free space on my file server a few months back and have been too cheap to upgrade until recently. I first started with four 400 <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte">GB</a> drives a few years ago and setup a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standard_RAID_levels#RAID_5">RAID 5</a> array using Linux and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mdadm">mdadm</a> giving me roughly 1.2 <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terabyte">TB</a> of space. I upgraded a disk at a time as needed until I had seven drives and about 2.6 TB of space:

Winter must not have liked my <em><a href="http://cameronstokes.com/2009/02/16/spring-is-on-the-way/">Spring is on the way</a></em> post as today it decided to snow. I guess I underestimated the ability of a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punxsutawney_Phil">pea-brained rodent</a> to predict the weather.

Having taken up homebrewing lately, I decided to take it a step further and grow my own <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hops">hops</a>.  After doing some research regarding growing hops in <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_(U.S._state)">Georgia</a>, of which there is very little information, I picked up the book <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Homebrewers-Garden-Easily-Prepare-Brewing/dp/1580170102/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&amp;s=books&amp;qid=1236737105&amp;sr=8-1">The Homebrewer's Garden</a>.  The section on hops is really short but has some good information on how to plant, care for, and harvest your own hops.

We ventured up to Bogart this past weekend to check in on the hop farm.  My expectations were low after talking to my cousin who had stopped by the farm the previous week and not seen any seen anything growing.  My mood quickly improved when we arrived Saturday morning and found 4 plants that were peeking out of the ground, 2 Cascades and 2 Willamettes.  The Chinooks haven gotten off to a slower start.

Back in 2005, I took an <em>Applications Development</em> class at <a href="http://www.spsu.edu/">Southern Polytechnic State University (SPSU)</a> while working towards my Bachelor's of Science in Information Technology (BSIT).  At the time the class was taught with <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Java_(programming_language)">Java</a> (they've since switched to <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_Sharp_(programming_language)">C#</a> unfortunately) and having worked in Java at <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercontinental_Hotels_Group">InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG)</a> for a few years already I convinced the professor to let me skip the classes, show up for the exams, and work on the class project at my leisure.  The class project was to develop a computer simulation of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osmosis">osmosis</a>.  This is what I put together:
