Started off my Tuesday morning visiting the dentist before breakfast and coffee. Maybe that’s not such a good idea. Too groggy to carry on a conversation.
Unpacked my new laptop today, woohoo! What a nice machine! About time, as I’ve discovered the two older (3-years-old and 4-y-o) machines are on their last legs: no floppy in either one, fan going on one, and power supply cord on the other.
Sunday. Working on the house, fixing a couple of storm windows, cleaning up for winter.
This Contra Costa Times article talks about a technique of guerilla advertising. I have a suspicion that Slashdot was taken that way in this article gushing about the Tablet PC.
My desktop machine is in need of an overhaul. I yanked the dot-matrix printer we were using for a client project because I thought it was the source of my problems, but the problems continued. The machine will crash if nudged. I took it apart, cleaned the dust out, and attempted to reseat all the components, to no avail. Now, I am seeing Mozilla and Opera crash on a regular basis. It may be time for some major changes.
Saturday, and time to finish my speaker’s notes and send them along to Whil.
AP is calling the New Hampshire’s Senatorial race a. Yay!
