Tornado in Iowa City

April 14, 2006 1 comment


We rode out the storm in my basement bunker office last night. We were surprised when the phone started ringing early this morning from friends and family checking up on us. We didn’t know it at the time, but a tornado tore right through Iowa City, within a few blocks from here.

My friend Jim Cochran just rode his bike through town and took some pictures. I uploaded them to flickr.

Update: I went out myself and took some more pictures. I added them to flickr

I came up with a pretty nice low cost thin client solution for the First United Methodist Church in Iowa City. It is based on ThinStation, an open source solution. Those are diskless, fanless (pretty much) computers booting from TFTP and running terminal sessions on a Windows 2003 server. We have deployed one CompactFlash HD based system at SUI, and are in the process of deploying 5 more for testing different types of setups, probably including the TFTP boot option. Those should replace the WYSE terminals they’ve been using. It will be cheaper, faster, and more flexible.

Office Photos

The new office is nearly complete, so I took some photos at a clean moment. I did most of the work myself with some help from some contractor friends.
