More @Home love
My cable modem keeps disconnecting. This sucks. If someone has an alternative high-speed solution, besides DSL, I'll take it.
Officially a day I can participate in...
Today is "Be Late for Something Day" according to a ThinkQuest calendar. Of course, tomorrow is Fight Procrastination day.
The World Trade Towers Attacked
Well, I'm sure as you all know the other day the World Trade Towers were attacked and demolished by some brain washed schmuck. The real downside is that I doubt we will seriously do anything about it. I'd personally prefer that we go to war over the whole thing and let other countries, people, schmucks know that if they seriously want an ass-whippen all they have to do is send an e-mail or something. Hell, if they are that stupid, I'd be all for giving them rope and showing them how to hang themselves.
Of course, the reality of the situation is that we want oil from the middle east and we probably won't seriously attack Argentina or wherever these guys are being harbored. Now, when the oil gets screwed with we have Desert Shield and Desert Storm and some dessert, but all they really did was kill off a few thousand people and destroy a couple billion dollars worth of property. I'd wager a guess that we didn't even have that many of our own military people die in all of Desert Storm.
Oh, time will tell, now won't it. Anyway, in other news, scanning is progressing and Dawn has now amassed about 6.5Gigs worth of raw scans - someone still needs to go through them and clean up the pictures and separate it all out and blah blah blah. But, it is progressing. The downside is that now I have to finish the picture archive. I still haven't even started that and as you can probably see I don't have the news archive working yet either.
Hi, I spammed a bunch of you today with this message:
Friday Night at 7:00 p.m. step out your door, stop your car, or step out of
your establishment and light a candle. We will show the world that Americans
are strong and united together against terrorism. Please pass this to
everyone on your e-mail list. We need to reach everyone across the United
The message: WE STAND UNITED - WE WILL NOT TOLERATE TERRORISM.
We need press to cover this-- we need the world to see.
Spamming isn't something I normally do, but this seemed like a nice cause. Hope you can play along.
One year anniversary
Well, our one year anniversary is going to be this coming Saturday (22nd). So, I did a little oddball research and found out that the 22nd is also:
I'm not really all that clear on what that last one really is, but I'm going along with it.
Some events of note for this day are:
FYI, all of these were taken from The Daily Globe, some of them were a little difficult to confirm and have been removed.
You'll never guess
Today my favorite thing happened once again for about 6 hours!!! My @Home connection dropped... Remind me that I love this stuff...
