Post 3039 - Wednesday

Once again, it is past 10:30.

I just sent off my next column for Frank Magazine. As well, I sent in a "random act of kindness" item to Jeremy Novak, who puts out the Grapevine newspaper in the Valley. He liked the idea I pitched him, so I produced that this evening, too. It will be online, so when it goes up, I will let you know. Or you can add it to the list of things I work on that you don't give a darn about. Up to you.

Patricia left for the cottage around this time last night, and called me from there at 1 this morning. I spoke to her about an hour ago, and she reported that it is very hot there, but that she is relaxing and semi looking forward to staining the deck there, just about as much as I am looking forward to staining the deck here. I think there is some irony there, so you're welcome.

I got home from work around 5pm, and I have spent nearly the whole evening down here in my home office. I wasted some time with the KVM switch I bought earlier this year. The mouse I had hooked up to it on this computer stopped working, and when I tried to plug the new mouse into the adapter that goes into that switch (ps/2 connections), the new mouse didn't work at all. After a few minutes, I became frustrated and disconnected the two computers that connected to the switch, and ran the mouse and keyboard and monitor to the desired desktop computer. Everything works great now, and the computer no longer crashes on me. And the monitor is configuring itself properly again. Why did I ever both with a KVM switch anyway? If I have to, I will just take the other desktop computer here and hook it up to another monitor and keyboard and mouse. Easier on my nerves.

Do you know someone who would like an inexpensive KVM switch?

Tomorrow is Thursday, which is my Friday because I am off on Friday. Does that make any sense?

I think I will turn in. Long day tomorrow.

See you then.
