Belated blogmeet report


End-of-the-month wind-down + start of school + Colts game + Blackwater + 2 meets in one month + whatever = thinner but still companionable turnout on Sunday. Present were Shermlock & Mrs. Shomes, Roberta X, and yrs truly. Amongst topics of discussion: Why a Single Point of Failure is a Bad Thing, Especially when it Involves Air Conditioning, the merits of different methods of popcorn popping (Oh look, here’s a steam engine used for driving a popcorn popper... Steam-powered popcorn- kewl!), and Why School Should Not Start Until After Labor Day. Good time was had by this participant and, I see, the others.

Roberta X promises enhanced advance notice re: September’s date.  Watch this space (or this one).

Doubly bloggy goodness


The Word:

The semi-official Indy BlogMeet will meet Sunday, 17 August at 3:00 pm at Broad Ripple Brew Pub.
The semi-un-official Bloogmeet will be a week later: 24th, same time, same place.
All clear?

Yeah, I’m back


...and exhausted.

Made a quick trip southward to assist Aged P and WS in moving house (which had been put off for a week by delays re: closing).

Unfortunately, first project on arrival was to uninstall all the routers and TV boxes for return to the phone company. (New place comes with CATV, internet will be DSL[1], needing a different set of boxes.)  Result: No internet for the last 5 days (not that I had any time for it, anyway).

More later.

Sites Linked - July 2008


38 posts in July, still trending downward after June’s 43 and May’s 45, but also still ahead of March and April (both 35) and far better than the lowest month YTD: September 2007 (28 posts).

The July linklist is below the jump...
