Post 3165 - Friday

After 10pm.

Had a quiet day, away from work. We went to Costco, to the Paderno store where they are having a big sale (read: some items are affordable), before ending up at Value Village, where I bought nothing at all. We had a mid-afternoon late lunch at the Chinese food place on the Bay Road before returning home around 3:30.

I got a SSD for a desktop computer today, from ebay. 30GB, large enough to hold an OS and apps, while the data are stored on a traditional hard drive. However, the desktop is a small form factor thing, and there is no room in it to store a second hard drive. There are no data or power connections on the mother board that are unused. I would have to disconnect the multi drive and replace it with the SSD instead. But I still need that multi drive so that I can rip some cd's I bought last year. So, I have a perfectly-good solid state drive that has no home. I will find a use for it some time, somewhere.

I have a Toastmasters thing early Saturday morning. Starts at 8:30 I think. Way the hell over in Dartmouth, Cole Harbour. The only thing is, we are supposed to get a major storm in the morning. I have made it clear that I am not risking my life to drive anywhere tomorrow in the middle of a freezing rain storm. Not worth it. Some people would disagree with my attitude, but I would disagree with their zeal.

At any rate, I should turn in, so I will bid you adieu for the nonce.

(When is the last time someone wrote "adieu" and "for the nonce" in the same sentence? Do I win something?)
