Mac OS Question

Is there anyone out there using Mac OS X.6 (AKA Snow Leopard)? Would you recommend it? Is there anything it's important to know about it?

Arisia roomshare request

Crossposted to the MASSFILC list.

Apologies to those of you who are seeing this twice, but I figured it couldn't hurt to post this request here to pick up anyone I've missed. I know I'm posting this a bit close to the con. I missed getting into the main hotel by literally a few hours -- by the time I got back from the Harpers' Escape it was sold out. I was hoping to get into the main hotel through the wait list but it is looking like that's not going to happen. So I would to like to find someone to share a room with in the main hotel. I don't smoke or snore (that anyone has complained). I would like my own bed, but a roll away will do if necessary. If you are interested, please either e-mail me or leave a comment (which will be screened).

Thanks in advance.

Happy New Year!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and new decade too. (Yes, I know that technically the new decade starts next year :) ) May 2010 be a better year than last, and may this new decade be an improvement on the one just past.

Changing Seasons

I finally put most of the snow stuff in the trunk yesterday. Not that I've been expecting snow the past couple of months. At one point a few weeks ago the tree pollen on my car was so thick, that I had to brush off the windows with my snow brush in order to see out of them. Being allergic to tree pollen made the job even more fun. (sigh) We turned off the heat for the season on Monday. And I made my first pitcher full of iced tea today. Even if I didn't have a calendar, I would know that Memorial Day and the start of summer are fast approaching.

Catching up from Thanksgiving

I spent most of last week at my brother and sister-in-law's in Aurora, IL, and before that I had a funeral to go to, so the pants are experiencing moderate cash flow problems. :) I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Probably more later.

Back from FKO

I got back from FKO yesterday afternoon. Everything went smoothly on the trip back, except for the storms we flew over which produced a lot of turbulence. Between unpacking and running around as Mom's taxi service, I've just gotten online now. FKO was a lot of fun. I was glad to see everyone I saw. nMc was wonderful. I hope I'm able to go again next year.

Off to retrieve my laundry and then get some sleep.

Rudolph, the red-nosed SUV

A little humor, for those of us who need it. Seen in the Shop-Rite parking lot, Rochelle Park, NJ: one honking big SUV sporting antlers and a Rudolph red nose attached to the front grill. (The antlers clip onto the doors.)

Better be careful where you drive that during hunting season.

Wishing you a Warm Happy New Year!

Literally. I think it's been in the low 50s most of the day.

I just wanted to wish all my friends a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. May you all have/find day jobs that don't drive you crazy.

Now it's even hotter

Yes, we've officially joined the "Century" club. No, that's no relation to the "Mile High" club. ;) It hit 100F here yesterday, and it's officially 100F outside now as I type this. (38C doesn't sound quite as hot, or record-breaking.) Fortunately the central air in our building seems to be coping with the heat without any problems.

So, any bets on how high the temperature is going to go today?
