Meaning: Just not much happening around here. Yâ€™all *do* know what SSDD stands for, right?
Really rained here yesterday and last night. Windy. My one antenna wire thatâ€™s hooked to the top of a 90 ft tree, hanging across the lawn and over the house to another tree, was really dipping down. Weather-guessers still canâ€™t make up their minds if itâ€™s going to snow anytime soon or not. I wish it would as Iâ€™m sick of the rain.
Spent most of yesterday setting up multiple VMWare Virtual drives to do different things. Then spent time setting up my negative scanner and scanning my 35mm negatives. Lots of old photoâ€™s there. (Found some of my Ex- that she would NOT like! Although there are a couple that I still like even though I cannot stand the woman herself now.) Gotta find my slidesâ€¦
Now I need to get a 110 film strip scanner. And one for those (Kodak Safety Film) I have absolutely no idea what size (smaller than 35mm but way larger than 110 film) scanners. I also have some large format negatives from when I went to Upward Bound the summers of 1968/69. Would be lots nicer to scan the negatives than to have to make prints then scan them.
Installed Mandrake Linux 2010.2 to a virtual machine last night also. Iâ€™m getting pretty good at installing the different versions of Linux; but need to learn more about the internals and the different commands. So far Iâ€™ve mostly just been setting them up like Windows with point-n-click and work in a â€œTerminalâ€ only occasionally. Iâ€™ll get better at it though. Itâ€™ll be kind of like learning DOS all over again.
Man, I totally wrote all this yesterday morning, minimized it to do something, wound up re-uploading all the WordPress files cause someone got in AGAIN, then went to bed. So it set here all day and all night
Iâ€™d better post this before I forget about it again!
