Unfortunately, during today’s 5 hour downtime, we were not able to finish all planned data center maintenance procedures, and we plan to finish them on March 5th between the hours of 2:00 AM and 7:00 EST, so, there might be additional downtime. Again, sorry for any inconvenience.
Hot Rods. Friends. Food. Drinks. Cold. Hot Rods. I already said Hot Rods?......But I like 'em.
A cold Saturday night due North of Albany...Ken Schmidt and Keith Cornell are the Rolling Bones Hot Rod Shop. They turn out the absolute nastiest, coolest, bitchinest, traditional hot rods you'll find anywhere. Famous for thier cross-country banzai jaunts to Bonneville and southern runs to Maxton, the Rolling Bones guys use their stuff and take thier hardcore customers along for the ride. Every February they host Garage Night and a bunch of frozen Hot Rodders show up to thaw-out and party at the Bones's Barn. The packed house is treated to an open door shop filled with cool artifacts and parts lining the walls and a bunch of killer projects under construction. They even let you try them on! This year the weather was really cooperative so outside were a dozen or so Hot Rods who's owners braved the chilly but clear New York night and chowed down Philly Soft Pretzels, Pizza, Wings, Whoopie Pies while downing copious amounts of Beer and bench racing, bullshitting and laughing into the night. We had a blast, thanks Guys!
Then Sunday we made our way over to the Saratoga Auto Museum to check out the Porsche: 60 Years of Speed & Style in North America Exhibit. Wow. Race Cars, One-Offs and bad ass exotic Street Machines were all fully represented in this Porsche assembledge. I drooled over the 906 for while before going upstairs to check out some fine, home-grown New York State Racers on display. What a place...
