Saturday (I was offline most of the weekend) was Mom and Bill's anniversary. 34 years together! Monday was the birthday of a very sweet woman. Today is my birthday. Sunday is my sis-in-law's birthday. And the Saturday after that is Dad and Cathy's 28th anniversary and Dave's birthday.
Such a busy time of year!
Anyway, happy birthday, anniversary, special day to everyone.
I need another weekday this week. And then I'll probably want an extra weekend day too.
It seems like there is so much stuff to do between tonight after work and tomorrow evening that it couldn't possibly all get done by one person.
Anyone want to take my car in for an oil change for me? :p And do my laundry? That would help out a lot. :D
I need a new camera. My old one didn't love me so much after dropping it, though it limped along. It was really a matter of time until it died.
So, what would you recommend? I don't need a crazy fancy camera because I'm not looking to spend that kind of money on it. I like having a good zoom (optical, not digital) and a small form factor.
Original configuration: desktop computer with external drive that contained ~60G of music
Next config: Music moved to desktop computer and external drive put aside
Current config: Music moved to laptop with the hopes of retiring the desktop computer soon
In each of these transitions, I've lost some music (to xcopy errors). I guess some of the files were corrupted. Who knows. Anyway, on this last transition, iTunes on the laptop said I had about the right number of songs, but looking more closely, I was seeing things multiple times.
Yesterday morning, I unmapped the connection between my laptop and desktop and then deleted the songs listed in iTunes (but not the actual files). Then I crossed my fingers and told it to scan for my music.
When I got home last night, I had a pristine list of ~13,500 songs (about the right number) and none of those "we can't find this file" indicators.
Yay for the return of all of my music. :D
This affected my commute this morning:
"Subway Red Line - Between Alewife and JFK/Umass stations both north and south - experiencing 20-25 min delays due to switch problem at JFK 8/22/2007 7:18 AM"
The trains were running so irregularly that when I got on the train at Alewife (one of the end stops), there was SRO. Crazy. And more and more people tried to smush themselves on the train at each stop.
I prefer to get my snuggling from people I know, not random commuters. :p
Happy birthday to one hell of a fabulous woman. Who I helped move the first time I met her. Who has been blessed with a baby boy. And who has finally moved back to the east coast and will probably kick my butt if I don't get down there and visit her sometime.
Clench your teeth for tunes, Japan researchers say
"In the laboratory, grinding right teeth can play and halt music on an iPod while clenching left teeth makes it skip to the next track, he said."
I agree that it can be a pain to operate your iPod with your hands, this would be bad news for me to have since I already grind my teeth (mostly when I'm sleeping) and clench my jaw. :p
