Stuff and Things

1. This was going to be a typecast, but I didn't feel up to hauling out all 40 pounds of Prince Henry.

2. I got zero response on the S.T/A.R project, so that is on hold for the moment.

3. Instead of working on the stuff I'm supposed to be working on for the past few days, I've been watching T.V., knitting, embroidering, and pretending I don't see my tax stuff waiting for me on the table.

4. I've also be trying to come up with a way to earn $450 while still fully clothed, before my laptop commits seppuku. The screen is attempting to separate itself from the rest of the computer. Shocked myself on it last night, so I'm starting to think I can't put off the repairs as long as I thought I could. But, everything it backed up so that when it does die, I won't loose anything. Except my music, tv shows, and a chunk of my photos. But the important stuff is safe.

5. It sucks when all of your skills became obsolete around the time of the industrial revolution.

6. Might end up going offline for a few days, depending on how my funds look and how quickly the laptop deteriorates. Hopefully, no more than a week.


  1. 1. Even with a fleet of portables, it's still hard to muster the energy for a typecast every time. I empathize.

    2. I read the post. The blogosphere is the one place where I am aggressively neutral politically. Good luck.

    3. Uh, taxes. Anything is better.

    4. Backed up is good. Dying technology is a serious bummer.

    5. Modern skills are sometimes over rated.

  2. I wish you luck with your laptop. Too bad you are so far from my shop. Don't be discouraged if your computer dies as long as it is not the drive. You should have no problem removing the drive and putting in in a mobile enclosure for use, after all you have worked on your own typewriters and PCs (even laptops) are less complicated once all the hidden screws are located. Keep your spirits up a good job will come your way. Never know when, that is the hard part. Good luck on finding a job I'll be cheering for you.
