The weather outside was frightful today in Nova Scotia. The drive in to work was fine, but the drive home tonight was brutal.
The snow hit around 8:30 and continued all day. I left work a bit early to try to beat the heavy traffic. The usual route, up Young Street to Bayers Road, was impossible; I found out later that two Metro Transit buses were stuck a few blocks up, unable to move. I went around the other way, to Robie and then to North and then to the Armdale Roundabout. Creeping along, inch by inch, I got home within an hour, easily twice as long as it normally takes to get home at night.
I got home and cleaned off the steps. Patricia took the bus and got home around 6.
I was hoping for a quiet evening at home.
No such luck.
Patricia has long since forgotten the password to her netbook for the purposes of installing updates. It's a linux computer. I have spent the last few hours trying to re-install another version of linux. The install works, but the wireless doesn't work at all. I have tried many things. I am about to try a wireless usb key to see if that works. If it does, I will call it a night. If it doesn't, my frustration will probably keep me up all night. I am like a dog with a bone with this stuff.
Tomorrow's Thursday, and I'm off on Friday. Looking forward to a good break.
See you tomorrow.
