I’m fresh off the phone with Dave. He’s got some sort of Mac Virus that’s changing all of this data to Pc format, or some such. I really couldn’t help him out too much… he’s using os 9ish, and my strengths are really on Unix & Windows type machines.
First rule of business… *back up your data files regularly*.
I think that he’ll be ok, but has a few hours of fix-up ahead of him…. no envy here.
I’m glad that B-boy is doing well…I was concerned about his health… speaking of which, my brother’s getting better, but slowly. He’s been cutting back on the smokes… one pack every three days, rather than a pack a day… I hope that he can shave it down to removing it.
Looks like he’s kicking his roommate out… something like the fourth month in a row he couldn’t pull his side of the rent. (The roomie can go live with his mom, until he gets his act together). I agree with the bro’s decision… the roomie’s not landing in the street.
I’m not looking forward to the anniversary of Sept 11… I fear it’ll be a big political bit of noise. I know that I had enough trouble the first time around.
I forgot to mention earlier that at the toy store, aside from the recorder, I picked up a little 25mm scale play set with a police station, fire station, parking garage, a few civilians to go with the police and firemen, a fountain with a horse stature in the middle, a couple of trees, assorted vehicles including a paddy wagon, helicopter, fire engine, and a little train engine and tanker car. Cheap for $10. (Marked down from $15) Newton had a field day with all the twist-ties that came with… and likes to sit inside the fresh cardboard box.
By the way… Yahoo maps doesn’t do the best route to the local bookstore…purple is the path that they choose… flashing red is mine. As an added bonus, I get to ride through the park, wave at the squirrels, and watch kids practice soccer. The other route goes far out of its way… I’d at least think that the path logic would go to 6th, and shoot straight north. Fewer lights, more direct route. (I had a better, Indiana Jones style line animation, but it was too large to post here…this one is only 17k, about half the size of most folk’s icons, and gets the point across.
I picked up a book there by Joyce Tyldesley called Judgement of the Pharaoh: Crime and Punishment in Ancient Egypt, and it looks good thus far. I’ve not dug deep in yet. I don’t know the first thing about how law worked in those particular times… very different than the Middle East, though. (Prostitution being a legal trade, for example.) I look forward to learning more about how the ma’at works.
very cool 25mm floorplans for heroclix (or any games, really)
