Just sitting around playing on the computer and watching tv. Ripped and put all 3 Bourne movies on one disc and am watching it now to "be sure it works okay". Ought to get off my ass and do some dishes! Already made SWMBO dinner. She let me off easy tonight by letting me nucro-wave her a chicken pot pie. Thanks, cutie!
Flew the F15C mission in Lock On. Blew 4 of the enemy out of the sky before they got me. Went down in flames! Lots better than the first time I played it. I’m having problems figuring our why Lock On and X-Plane go squirrelly on me. Meaning both programs the video gets jerky. I unload everything I can and still run Windows. I have an Athelon dual core 64 with 1 gig or ram I shouldn’t be having any problems.
Started reading an Astronomy book last night in my usual ’read before going to sleep’ time. I gotta sit down and make me a schedule! Too many things I want to do. Something like:
- Sunday: Scan pictures. Study PHP
- Monday: Study MySql. Rip remaining cd’s.
- Tuesday: Study PHP. Rip my movies to .avi files.
- Wednesday: Scan pictures. Study MySql.
- Thursday: Rip movies to .avi files. Watch Smallville.
- Friday: Date with SWMBO. (Keep finger out of nose.)
- Saturday: Whatever I haven’t done earlier in the week!
Not to mention all the other stuff I usually do (laundry, dishes, housework, stuff the "Man" is supposed to do around the house, etc, etc, etc), Phew! Figured last night that since I don’t have a "regular book" (meaning by someone like Koontz or King) to read before bedtime that it would be a good time to read something I’ve wanted to learn. i.e. Astronomy or whatever. Also need to learn some College Accounting if I’m to start my own business.
Speaking of Koontz, Dean R.: I haven’t been disappointed in a Koontz book at all (well, there was that "Abducted" one which generally sucked) until I finished this latest one. "The Darkest Evening of the Year". Went okay until the very last chapter. It was written like Koontz was thinking "Well, I’ve spent enough time on this book and I gotta finish it off and get on to something else. Gotta catch up with Stephen King!" or something.
Me and Poop-Dog got out to the property for awhile yesterday. Damn, I have a lot of work to do with the Digger out there! I put more pictures up on my gallery, the EarthShelteredDome gallery and my Webshots gallery (just in case) of the damage to the road, clearing and dome hole. Now I gotta figure a way to get my Digger back out there…
