Merrick & Lennon

Here’s the sign from Merrick & Lennon’s old place in Feasterville. Looks like it must have been nice. I wonder what they sold.

Another short post tonight. It’s already 10:00! How time flies.

Spent a lot of time in the lab this afternoon. It was interesting, instructive, and enjoyable. We had some good success too. It’s all good. I haven’t spent enough time in the lab. Have to correct that omission.

No update on the PostNuke/64-bit Linux controversy. I can’t find anything on the interweb that says it doesn’t work with the 64-bit version, but I certainly can’t make it install. Any ideas, Loyal Readers? Whatever I try next, it’ll have to wait until the weekend, I’m afraid. Too many projects, too little time.

I’m planning to work absolutely no more than 6 hours or so tomorrow, my off Friday. Including commute time, I’ll be spending a grand total of about 11 hours for no money. Ah, the glamorous life of the Professional.

We’ve had some rain the last couple of days! That’s a first for us in Northern California and I must say it’s a pleasant change. It’s officially Fall now. It’s kind of hard on the traffic situation, though. A little sprinkle and they all go crazy on the road. Fortunately, there’s the train. The trouble with taking the train on a rainy day is that I have to stand around in it at the stations on both ends and walk from the bus stop to my building and back. Could get messy. I have a few umbrellas, including ones thoughtfully prepositioned in my car’s trunk, in the back of the Suburban, and in my office, but no umbrella’s perfect. I guess I don’t really mind getting a little damp, though.

I’m listening to one of James Lileks’s Diner podcasts on iTunes right now – the “Hot Dish” edition, to be specific. As with all Diners, it’s very entertaining.

Time for bed. See you tomorrow.
