Macbeth the Usurper


I've got some stuff that needs to exit the house.

- PS2 and a small pile of game
- An amp (stereo works, surround sound doesn't)
- Sourround speakers
- DVD player
- Joystick
- Wireless keyboard and mouse
- Palm m125

If you are interested in anything, let me know. These things are just sitting around. Free to good homes. If you feel like offering money, I'll accept.
Macbeth the Usurper


The end of last week successfully qualified for "sucktitude". The word is "gastrointeritis." The symptoms are unpleasant and not to be repeated. By Friday, I had pains enough that I want to the emergency room. They hydrated me, poked me with an incompetent tech (you NEVER EVER leave a sharp on the table), x-ray, CT, etc.

Anti-biotics taste bad but do go stuff.

I'm following up with my regular doctor who is sure to prescribe more unpleasantness.

If it's not just a fluke infection, I do not want the alternative. As a hint, you do not want a condition that has its own foundation.

With today's sick day, I visited the doctor, filled the partial-fill prescription from Friday, folded laundry, upgraded Ubuntu to the next version and debugged the upgrade issues, straighted up the basement somewhat, sorted out equipment that I have finally admitted that I will never use, changed the bed over to winter, swapped in my winter shirts, picked up the CSA vegetables, bought and carved a pumpkin, and otherwise relaxed.
