scotto monkeypulse

side note – ridesharing

Trying carpooling on non telework days this week… It can be tight. People forget that I am a behemoth until they see me fold up into a vehicle.


I suffer a trifle from Mr. Incredible syndrome in most vehicles.

Upside of Carpooling today – Didn’t have to pay for the bus, got to the office in a pretty timely way, and good conversation with SM.

One week in.

904 is full so I’ll get on the next one. Actually, the one after that since the next one only hits pindell. Transit hasn’t been too great a problem save for the question of scale.

In the office realm, so far, so good.

Only difficulty so far has been setting up permissions that stick.

Hopefully the help desk will get it so that I don’t have to manually reconnect and configure items as soon as I boot every day.

My first task looks reasonable – review a stack of html files for translation into a new template. I’m enjoying the rolling up of sleeves and getting down to business.

Pasted from phone this AM -

Weather here is more than a little crazy.

Grolar Bear (Nanulak)

As fascinating as this hybrid is, grizzly bears and polar bears have been known to couple up in the wild in the past. However, most known cases of Grolar Bears in existence have come into this world in captivity giving us partial credit for their discovery. Despite records of at least three sitings, Grolar Bears are still very similar to their parents, often having physical traits of both the grizzly and the polar bear.

I prefer what Canadian wildlife officials have suggested calling the hybrid “nanulak“, taken from the Inuit names for polar bear (nanuk) and grizzly bear (aklak)
