Power failures: by the dozen
Topic: general, opinion Link here

Amazing information about my grid power today. Between 0:31:26 and 0:33:48 we had no less than 11 grid power failures.

Clearly they weren't long: the total period was 2 minutes, 22 seconds, and the longest outage was 27 seconds. On the other hand, this kind of bouncing is hard on electronics, probably the reason that the inverter waits a minute before reconnecting the grid.

But how do I count this? One 3 minute outage would be longer than the 11 I had. For the time being I'll count it as individual outages.

Could it be that these were brownouts? There have been significant voltage fluctuations, but not at that time:

Of course, that's only part of the truth. Clearly the grid voltage dropped below an acceptable value during that time, but there's nothing whatsoever to show it in the graph. What really happened?


Brisbane Ranges National Park again
Topic: gardening, opinion Link here

It has been almost exactly 10 years since we visited the Brisbane Ranges, specifically to visit the Friends of Brisbane Ranges Wildflower Show. Unfortunately they seem to have stopped doing that, so this year we decided to go it on our own, specifically to the east end of Butchers Road, which runs between Steiglitz (pronounced Stieglitz) and Anakie. We had found the most flowers there 10 years ago, and we weren't disappointed today. Directly next to the car we found two difference species of orchids (at the extreme left and right):

The one on the left is a Caladenia major, and the other is a species of Diuris. Here the are again closer up:

But which Diruis? Diuris pardina? There are some similarities (of course), but also potential differences. Are these two even the same species? My guess is no.

And that's where the problems start. I saw lots of flowers, many clearly orchids, but I can't identify them exactly. Time for a book, I think.

It's tiring business. Yvonne gave up after a couple of photos and took other views, including these:

For the time being I've given up trying to name most of the flowers; I'll try to identify them and come back here. Here are some that I consider to be orchids:

The Caladenia major were everywhere, but some of the others really needed searching for.

I think that this first one (two photos) is a species of Grevillea; possibly the second one (last photo) is too:

On the way back, passed tracks marked “Wildflower Trak” and “Orchid Trak” on my GPS navigator, which seems to have a predilection for the spelling “Trak”. Stopped at the Wildflower Track, though Yvonne had had enough, and walked down a bit. Yes, wildflowers, but nothing that I hadn't seen at the other place. Met some women who told me that they had seen a spider orchid, and where it was, but all I saw there was one of the Grevilleas I had seen.


Meredith
Topic: general Link here

The way home went through Meredith, a not-so-small town on the road from Ballarat to Geelong. I've been through several times, but never stopped. The weather was good, so today seemed like the day to try it, especially as we discovered that you can buy ammunition and old drinks at the Post Office:

I wonder if it's still in use. The railway line is, but I get the feeling that the station has been converted to a private dwelling.


Web site calming down
Topic: technology, opinion Link here

After the extremely high load averages of the last few days, www.lemis.com is now returning to what I hope will become normal, with typical load averages below 1, though from time to time it goes up to 20.

But barely has that problem gone away that I get another:

From: "support@vultr.com" <support@vultr.com>
To: groggyhimself@lemis.com
Subject: Vultr.com: Bandwidth Warning

The following subscriptions have reached high bandwidth utilization levels:

Subscription:3243454 - 2048 MB Server - 66.42.97.229 (w3.lemis.com): 78% used
...
Please note: Your bandwidth usage cap will reset on the 1st of every month.

Oh. 78% only 13 days into the month? A result of the recent load issues? No, it seems that the bandwidth load has been relatively even. More head-scratching to do.

Finally, the hanging baskets
Topic: gardening, opinion Link here

I don't know how long it has been since we decided to hang some baskets on the left in the house entrance, but it must have been round a year ago. Finally, with the advent of warmer weather (again!), got round to planting the Fuchsias that I bought last week:

Also documented the current state of the herb garden. The Thai basil has been there for a few days, the Epazote a little over a week:

Surely that must be an orchid. But what kind? There are even more of them here than there were Caladenia major in Steiglitz yesterday.

And once again I had difficulty keeping the things still. There must be some clever way to keep flowers from shifting in the wind without damaging them or making the support evident in the photo.


This page contains (roughly) yesterday's and today's entries. I have a horror of reverse chronological documents, so all my diary entries are chronological. This page normally contains the last two days, but if I fall behind it may contain more. You can find older entries in the archive. Note that I often update a diary entry a day or two after I write it.     Do you have a comment about something I have written? This is a diary, not a “blog”, and there is deliberately no provision for directly adding comments. It's also not a vehicle for third-party content. But I welcome feedback and try to reply to all messages I receive. See the diary overview for more details. If you do send me a message relating to something I have written, please indicate whether you'd prefer me not to mention your name. Otherwise I'll assume that it's OK to do so.
