Busy Week.

on Jun.23, 2004, under Computers, Happenings

This has been a really busy week, and it’s only Wednesday. The rest of the week doesn’t hold much of chance of calming down either.

The laptop is in! The Thinkpad R40 arrived Friday (after ordering on Wednesday night, pretty good… about worth the $45 in shipping). I visited both Ian and Ship to acquire media and networking resources required to bring it up to speed. It still hasn’t replaced spruce (no files have moved), so it probably won’t be seen outside of my house much until it does. First three thoughts about the laptop: fast, big, quiet. The first and third are obviously completely good… the second is a mixed blessing. Complete article to come at some point….

Other stuff is happening too. We had a family picnic on Saturday. VBS is this week (Sunday-Thursday) and I’m running the sound/lights for the program as I’ve done for a number of years now. Friday night Isaac and his SO are planning a CTF get-together. Saturday and Sunday are ARRL Field Day. (Need to drag Doug to the last two.) Sunday is the conculding VBS program, as well as a more major family reunion at Doubling Gap, during which Chris and I can hopefully uncover a large quantity of geocaches.

So, not much NetMRG is getting done. My uncle who works for the navy base said that he had come across NetMRG while doing some RRDTOOL searching… might order a T-Shirt ;). This week is work, VBS, and a few hours of DS9 watched on the new laptop to gauge battery performance (as a primary objective, anyway). Some interpersonal stuff, too. Evil ambiguity. And… Blazer doesn’t seem well this week, and Katelyn’s at field hockey camp, and Ship is getting a 24TB SAN, and… well, you get the picture. Busy.

Yeah… so that’s why there isn’t a lannic photo/graph archive yet, nor have I logged the last geocache find…
