Well, this was a much better day
Did a little bit of Christmas shopping for the kiddies. I know I'll hate myself for getting my 13 year old daughter her own phone.
I actually was able to go out with my wife for a cup of White Chocolate Espresso and some Espresso brownies. We get along so much better when we can relax and enjoy each other's company.
Got hit with an idiot portscanner. Turns out he was someone who made the attempt before, and he had the Netbus client installed (just like last time). I hate script kiddies. I switched his mouse buttons and opened and closed his CD tray until he decided he should go offline.
Read a few excellent nodes, added them to my list of things to vote on.
A special thanks to Nate and Uberfetus for granting me 25 votes (yesterday E2 forgot to reset my 60 votes and 3 C!'s). Thanks to their generosity, I am not behind on my list of things to upvote.
I am loathe to kill my SuSE Linux box to put Win95 on it. Started checking the junkpile for any spare Pentium Pro parts. I will do my best to keep Linux from being overwritten by Windows.
My daughter and I went out this morning to volunteer to clean up a hiking trail near my house. It only takes an hour or two, you get exercise, you bond, and you will feel better by helping improve your environment. Go try it!
Been noding quite a bit, very productive day for the writing muse.
Heard from Wonko. I was wondering if he was OK because he hadn't noded in a while, turned out he was on vacation (welcome back).
Hope your weekend is progressing well.
