Spent a wonderful afternoon yesterday on an Erie Canal cruise with the gang from Presbytery. It was nice way to get a break in the PC rebuilding and website-making action. Working on a redesign for the Presbytery site. That’s going well. Either I’m really, really good or they’re really, really easy to please. It’s another […]

All hail the Emperor

Monday, May 23rd, 2005

His Imperial Excellency, Emperor George I comes to R-Town tomorrow. He’s doing a “town-hall style” meeting at Greece Athena High School, which I attended from [cough] 1969 through 1971 back when it was Greece Athena Junior/Senior High. It’s all to show support for his agenda to remove Social Security from the safety of a government […]

Week of trials

Monday, May 23rd, 2005

My main PC is still not fully functional. It seems several components were on the verge of failure. The trauma of transplanting disks seems to have tipped two of them over the edge. Not knowing for sure what was going on, after all I was installing two different operating systems in a dual-boot configuration, I […]

The visit that wasn’t

Monday, May 23rd, 2005

CBC did not visit this weekend. Just before leaving for R-Town, she helped the upstairs neighbor move something. Threw out her back. “Dude! You shouldn’t be doing shit like that,” I told her. “You could break a nail or something.” Laughter followed by much wincing from the other end. “Fuck. Don’t make me laugh it […]

In brief…

It would be a lot easier if I could forget the advice and hard lessons learned about keeping code and data separate on one’s PC. And, I suppose, if I had fewer than six hard disks in it. On the other hand, I’m becoming a whiz at reinstalling Windows XP and Fedora Core 3 Linux. […]

Oh, and another thing…

Friday, May 13th, 2005

CBC is visiting next weekend. That’ll be good because I’m getting callouses on my ears from talking on the phone. And, I’m still getting dizzy spells since I was sick a couple of weeks ago. Shelving books here at work with all the bending down and standing up seems to exacerbate the problem. I go […]

Just a quick entry to say all’s well around here. The past couple of weeks have been productively busy, as opposed to the past year or so where there’s not been much to show for having been busy. I’ve dropped all my pro bono clients, dropping off a CD to the last one on Tuesday. […]

Despite spending several hours a week in the Children’s Room at the library, I managed to get through the winter without getting sick. No colds, flu (bird or otherwise) or creeping grunge. Thus, I have little recent experience with being ill. Until yesterday. Since the headache and nausea hit at the about same time, it’s […]
