Lake Ogallala again

Time for another vacation picture. Here’s another view of Lake Ogallala. What a pretty place.

Another day, another thousand dollars. What a life. Sadly, my off Friday is pretty much shot tomorrow. I have meetings scheduled all morning. I’m going to drive in, though, and hope to be able to leave around noon. I don’t have my hopes too high, but they’re definitely there. It will be interesting to find out the truth about the traffic, too.

Loyal Readers Number One, Two, and Four went up to Sacramento today for the temple open house. They said it was a really meaningful experience, so I’m glad they went.

The rest of our stuff is in California and will be delivered tomorrow! At least we hope it will turn out to be the rest of our stuff. We’ll know sometime tomorrow. I’m personally hoping it will include my rolling briefcase, which I really want to use but haven’t been able to find yet. The only place left where there are still lots of boxes is the garage, and I spent quite a bit of time there last night looking for it and not finding it. I did manage to find some other briefcases and the pillows for the couch in the loft, though.

One of my colleagues told me today she’s getting ready to build a Linux box to use as a digital video recorder. I guess I could use the Computer on a Dime (Larry for short) for something like that, although we just got a DVR from Comcast, so there’s not much need. If it turns out I can’t record saved programs on my DVD player, though, I might change my mind. Another possible use for Larry is to get it working with my older Linux server (Moe) as a Linux cluster. My own supercomputer! Or at least a junior version of one. I don’t have any use in mind for it, but it would definitely be cool. Besides, we generally find that when equipment is made available, new uses appear. I can always count on that.

I want to finish here and get back to my book. As you can see way over there on the right, I’m currently reading The Coming of Bill, by P.G. Wodehouse. It’s not like his other work; there’s a lot more tension. There are rich people in New York, as with other stories, but things aren’t going well at all right now, and it’s not because of the comic idiocy of the main characters. The characters are much more complex than usual and I’m horrifyingly riveted. I’m loving the book, of course, and I highly recommend it, but it’s not light amusement. Grab a copy and see for yourself.

Time to go. See you tomorrow.
