running, bomb tech

About 5 minutes remaining

Getting a beta version of a new operating system for my machine. Not sure how it's going to work, but it's a person I trust when it comes to computers giving it to me, so I should hope it works well.

Still don't have the burner running.

Started this download from the guy (one of my many Daves) at about ten last night. Woke up in the middle of the night (ten till four) and saw that it was about 90% done and still chugging merrily away.

Woke up at five-twenty-seven to notice that oooooops, the download had been terminated -- somebody had disconnected. It said that it was Dave's fault, but -- checking, trying to send a message -- it seemed that it was my AIM that had logged me off.

I fumed.

Fortunately, this thing resumes downloads, if it's the same filename, from the same source.

We'll see how this works.

Tasty little squid-bits

I've never tried calamari. Sis is making some today.

I hated meatloaf until I tried hers. I am not especially fond of green beans, but when she cooks them, they are so gone.

I think she's finally found a food that I do not touch with a ten foot pole, not even if it is she that does the cooking.

Nope.

Tried it.

She came in holding a very small piece of breaded squid. I took it, bit off a small corner, and handed the rest of the piece back.

I don't think I'm a squid person. I don't like fish in the first place....
