Moving Registrars

I’m switching registrars so I can leave GoDaddy. There should be no issues since only the registrar data is changing. While this technically touches the DNS system, it’s only updating the registrar data at Internic and leaving the DNS servers the same (including the Start of Authority server). However if something does go wrong, now you know why.

This is the first step in a reorganization of some of the technical assets that I use worldwide. I’m cooking up some really cool things that I hope will leverage WordPress in an incredibly awesome way and also let me move away from Facebook.

Colstrip

Colstrip is a little town in the southeast corner of Montana. It’s a former boomtown and home to the 25000-acre Rosebud Coal Mine, 2100 megawatt Colstrip Power Station, and the Hofacker clan1.

These are pictures of the 2100 megawatt2 power station:

Mike and Tiffany, an Engagement Photoshoot

Photography is my hobby, not my job, so I can afford to pick and choose what I want to shoot.

One of the reasons I took this job was that the prime location was to shoot from the top of the top of the Space Needle. Yes, the very top. Also, Mike and Tiffany are awesome! Seriously, this wedding is going to be the bomb.

These photos were from back in January, over my birthday weekend. Rachel made a surprise visit to Seattle, so I roped her in to helping me set up these shots and providing assistance as a voice activated light stand. Unfortunately it was overcast (not so much of a problem) and really windy (much more of a problem), so we didn’t get any superb shots.

It was still a fun challenge and I’d do it again.

Fortunately, we had a backup plan. Retreating to terra firma, we headed over to Gas Works Park, which has some awesome locations that I was familiar with from a shoot a couple of years ago.
