Okay, I know, I’m posting too much. But I’m wondering about having a weekend-long stitch-n-bitch here at our place sometime. I know that waya and hopeevey stitch. I think devichan does (will ask when she comes back). ottergrrl, do you stitch? elfgirl is even local! ga_sunshine, did you ever get any further with your project? […]
Sam started going through his “memory box” to find something, then opened mine. He found it, and we framed it—the cover of his novel now hangs in our home, as it should have quite a while back. While it was out, I went through my box and threw out a lot of stuff—why do I have […]
I walked away from the geek stuff for a much-needed break. I colored and stitched a bit, and Sam and I gamed for a while. I need to do homework. I haven’t done it yet. I don’t wanna at the moment. Sam made biscuits for me this morning :-) I enjoyed a sybaritic soak in the […]
A completely clean install of Linux on the server was lovely—until the second reboot (I don’t remember why at the moment). And then it decided that XFree86 absolutely cannot run. Nope, not at all. Trying to use the configuration utilities gets a “can’t open display” error. I want an alpha geek house call, pretty please. I’m […]
I cleared the CMOS on the server, flashed the BIOS, repartitioned and formatted the hard drive. I took out the sound, video, and IDE controller cards we’d added, as well as the really huge hard drive (which requires the added controller card to work). I disabled the integrated NIC, as it seems to become unreliable, […]
Okay, Patches has us completely mystified. I shut Patches out of our room last night, since she was so unfriendly to Sam and didn’t want to stay out of the bed. Somehow, that seems to have caused her to realize that Sam’s pack hierarchy is much higher than hers, because she was quite friendly to […]
YES! Arrest due in ‘Blaster’ computer worm case Okay, he isn’t the true originator of it, but he did make it more lethal. I still want the spammers who created the original drawn and quartered. The amount of spam I’ve gotten at certain email addresses has already increased greatly since that damned thing hit.
Patches bit Sam last night (sigh). He was trying to put her leash on her for a walk — part of the “get dog to attach to Sam instead of Cynthia” campaign. Apparently she felt threatened and she bit him. Not a bad bite, but it did break the skin. She’s completely fine with me, and […]
Happy Birthday, shunra!
Fascinating stuff about “executive dysfunctions”—thanks, jenk. It’s definitely of interest to anyone with a close friend or family member with ADD/ADHD. Grr. I can’t get the style thingie to do what I want. I don’t have a “read comments” link for my friends’ entries any more.
