For the record, 704 page books are very heavy to hold while reading. Especially if those pages are high quality thick paper.

Just past 20:30 the banana bread went into the oven. I think I'm going to be up late tonight.

TCP/IP over smoke signals: bringing networking directly to the cloud.

I had to stop using my Google Glass when it got old enough for me to be concerned about having an older LiIon battery next to my head. This opportunity is ... tempting.

This lasagna better be good. It has almost a full head of garlic in it.

Have an old hardware RAID or other battery-backed up HBA? Don't forget to check your batteries now and then.

Last weekend marked 3 years since I last saw Danny. It would be really nice to have a boyfriend in my life again.

I'm trying to live a stress-free life. It's really hard. In fact, it's stressing me out.

Saturday's D&D campaign is cancelled because good reasons. That means I have nothing scheduled for the weekend.

I could go to the ID for the Lunar New Year celebration. My camera would like that but I suspect the crowds would be a bit much for me. Anyone in want to join me?

Whatever happens, I really shouldn't just stay home all weekend.

Just because you don't have anything to hide, doesn't mean you have anything you want to share.

residents, especially on the North Side, please take a few minutes to examine the proposed revamp for transit that will happen when the new Link stations open. There is an opportunity to give feedback and you would be well served to take advantage of it.

Today I became aware of yet another new low in the bottom feeding sharkology of the so-called financial industry.

A good friend passed away last month and left me a small sum in his will.

Today I received a "debit card" offer that would let me "receive my payment now instead of waiting up to a year for probate."

I wonder how many people fall for these ripoffs?

It's a shame probate and such is public.

Needless to say, the "offer" is now shredded and waiting proper curb-side pickup .

Baked a fresh load of bread today, intending to freeze it for the summer. The oil I put all over the pan wasn't up to the task and I had to cut along one side to free it. So much for freezing it.
