Leaning tower

Here’s a place most of us will recognize – the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It certainly leans. Photo courtesy of my friend Doug, I suspect, with whom I visited this lovely little town. We looked at the tower, ate a pizza, and went back to Cannes. The pizza was quite fresh, but Domino’s is better.

No post yesterday – the usual Wednesday late-night-meeting blues. Actually, the meeting was rather a good one. I just didn’t have time for blogging when I got home. My gain is your loss. Depending on how you look at it, of course.

It was a pretty day today – the rain has definitely passed through for now and we should be set for about a week’s worth of sunshine. It’s supposed to be in the very low 70s for the next several days as well. Loyal Reader Number Four reported that she saw lots of nice-looking plants at a store I’m too humiliated to admit we visit from time to time, and she bought several of them. Springtime is really in the air around here.

Of course, I spent 99 percent of today’s daylight hours inside my non-window-equipped office, which is inside a non-window-equipped office area. Such are the drawbacks of the super-secret work life. We do have to go outside briefly to get to our lab – we walk across the loading dock, which is sometimes one of the more picturesque areas of the building – so I get to soak up at least a few rays every day.

Let’s see . . . what else is going on? Ummm . . . nothing. I’m still letting ideas for my proposed Great Art generating machine roll around in my brain. Several promising ideas have surfaced, mostly for software-only solutions, which would be a start. I still want to gin up some kind of tangible machine, but the cooperative computer network is at least the first part of the puzzle, and I can get working on that right away. Loyal Reader Number One has some good ideas on getting the networking aspects working pretty easily. I may need to be on the lookout for an old used plotter, which would probably make a great starting point for the hardware portion.

And I might just as well quit while I’m ahead tonight. See you on Friday.
