Naked Bicycles & Design - Gallery Additions Naked Bicycles & Design - Gallery Additions en-us Thu, 26 Mar 2015 22:24:42 UTC (Todd Heckeler) (Todd Heckeler) Gallery Addition: Internet Shananigans Wed, 25 Mar 2015 17:25:28 +0000 So every couple of months our internet connection goes down for all kinds of crazy rural living reasons. We have 400′ of ethernet that goes along a horse trail, through a cave where some critter is currently residing, up a jagged cliff, 20′ up a tree to a radio pointed at another radio 4km away across Seymour narrows. What could possibly go wrong? Well, THIS time, it seems that the critter living in the cave thought the cable looked tasty and sampled it in about 10 different spots. Some late night spelunking, armed with ethernet crimpers and 2 days of trouble shooting, we are now able to comment on whether Obama should be vaccinating his gay kitten before ISIS can infect it with the Ebola virus.
