And I canâ€™t even really tell yâ€™all what the heck Iâ€™ve been doing. All the usual around the house; and working willy-nilly on the MILA trying to get that done. Daily walks with SWMBO and the Dog. Several with the Dog.
Did get another 30 day time-out from Facebook! Thatâ€™s sweet. Posted a quote from Hitler about finally achieving gun control. FB said it went against their (completely arbitrary) community standards. I protested and they came back that they had made a mistake and my post was put back up. HOWEVER, they then went back and â€œfoundâ€ 11 previous posts (a couple from last year) that they claim went against their (completely arbitrary) community standards, so the 30 day time-out is still in effect. Bastards. Guess they gotta win. Zuckerbergâ€™s a dick though. Heâ€™s the Monica Lewinsky of the tech world.
Otherwise, just not a whole lot (different) happening. Since I canâ€™t spend as much time on FB Iâ€™ve been cutting back on Tumblr and READING. I Love Reading! So Iâ€™ve dusted off my Kindle Paperwhite and started re-reading the Dragonriderâ€™s of Pern series. There is a strong possibility that Iâ€™ll not go back to FB at all cause I want to catch up on my reading.
Oh, we had Thanksgiving on Wednesday cause SWMBOâ€™s Son had to work Thursday. Was okay. They did up a tasty turkey. The rest of the dinner was good too. Stuffed myself; as usual.
Got a flyer in the mail that The Learning Company had put all their courses â€œon saleâ€ for $40 or less and I mentioned to SWMBO that it figures theyâ€™d have a really great sale when we really couldnâ€™t afford to spend much. So her son and his girl gave me $80 to buy a couple of courses for my Christmas Present. Nice. So I got and â€œIntro to Geologyâ€ and â€œGeology of our National Parks.â€ Really interesting stuff. I should have been a Geologist.
Oh, been rebuilding my computer and finally got Linux Mint 17.3 to install. Been reinstalling all the programs I use and pulling all my data off the old drives. THAT was a chore: the old drives came up as unpartitioned and unformatted so I had to use â€œtestdiskâ€ to pull everything off. Mostly worked. Now Iâ€™m spending a LOT of time moving things around drive-to-drive until I get everythig where they were and how I like them. Iâ€™m kinda picky that way.
Anywho, thatâ€™s really about it from around here. Supposed to snow tomorrow morning for a bit before turning to rain. Cool!
