Tenderized by the Universe and Flame Broiled!

So for those of you interested in buying cheap gigabit ethernet switches - don’t buy the Linksys 2024C. Just don’t do it. They go bad after about six months - or at least three out of four of the ones I bought for work just died in the last few months. Today it happened to be the office switch. Oy.

I am _SO_ having pie today. European Truffle Pie.

So thanks to a number of people I’m feeling better than I was yesterday. A little more organized and composed. I hope to keep that going throughout the rest of time...yeah...right... ;-)

So now I just need to get back on track with things again and schedule my time a little better.

Now if I could just get an extra source of income...

I seriously considered checking out envelope stuffing or something to pick up a little extra cash. I’ve done that before. It’s not that we’re hurting on cash it’s just that our spending is still a bit out of whack. That we can take care of but it would be nice to have extra toy money around. Something to smooth out the flow as it were.

My friend sent me a bunch of his Lovecraft paperbacks to hold on to while he’s living in Japan. I’m looking forward to reading them as I’ve never had the pleasure. I’ll make sure and take good care of them. :-)

Looking at what’s going on I hopefully won’t have to work this weekend but I don’t want to jinx it. I’ll know more once I go back to the office after lunch.

Looking like it’s going to be cold for the remainder of the week and the damn groundhog isn’t helping dammit! I want spring! Waaaaah!


The plethora of things around the house seems to keep shifting a bit every time I look at the list. One day one thing is the priority the next day it’s something else. Gonna have to start nailing those things down a bit. More scheduling....

There’s a book title for you - “Scheduling your life around the universe.” Hmm...that wouldn’t be a bad moneymaking book to write but I won’t write about something I’m not doing - at least not unless it’s fiction that is.

Speaking of fiction I ordered a comic writing guide on the advice of someone else. Have to see how that works out. I’ve got enough written that if I could draw I’d have a webcomic to put up but then I’d run out fairly soon. Yet _another_ thing to schedule - writing time. And not just the time I take to write here.

I think I’m going to need one hell of a calendar. Worse yet I’m going to have to make sure that it’s one shared between my wife and myself or many many things will get screwed up. Maybe _that_ should be my first project. ;-)
