    Wow. Adventure! Played that in college on dumb terminals connected to a university mainframe. It's been so long, didn't even recognize the magic word.

    And on that subject, sort of... My five-year-old H-P laptop is kaput. It will still boot up, but the BIOS no longer sees most of the devices, including the wireless card, the DVD drive, and the USB ports. Tried to tear into it to have a look around the motherboard, but the keyboard isn't fastened the way the service manual shows, and I don't think I can get it detached without breaking it. Oh well, I was getting fed up with it anyway -- can't run it at full speed without the CPU overheating and shutting down, and I'm tired of the 45-minute battery life. Computer shopping this weekend.

    basically its a cross between a back seat driver and a cybernetic piece of string between where you are and where you want to get to. I wish mine could double as a games device as it sure keeps my sprog* amused.

    *sprog =colloquial term for offspring.

    Injured some weird tendon somewhere deep inside my foot.
    Never knew a side cross could be that dangerous... heck, never knew that tendon existed till I found it... accidentally, so to speak

    No dancing for me till doctor tells me otherwise. Two weeks so far, probably about two to go. Facing serious withdrawal.
    aaaaaaaargh

    At least there's a possibility you won't have to go to Cincinnati. *shrug* Must find consolation where one may.

    apparently, it's the one that gives you crap when you try to walk backwards while turning toe in.

    Same here. I really need to go to Syracuse to meet with a sub and a vendor, but we have zero travel right now. They keep telling us we should use VTC instead, but (1) it's not the same thng, (2) the one room available to us that has VTC capability is a crap installation, and (3) the Army network restricts all of the commonly used online collaboration tools. We could go to our company HQ building where they have good VTC and we could get access to Webex, but we can't use those because of a color-of-money problem.

    isn't annoying when someone waves and toots their horn as they drive past you, but the windscreen is too reflecting to see in, and I didn't recognise the car. :p
