Wowee!! So I get comments from people I don't know at all. Now THAT'S something. And I also had a request to turn on 'Blogger Follow,' which I think is crazy. I like simplicity. Little mandatory pictures all over the place make for clutter. But in light of popular demand, fine. I'll do that.
On a similar note, I'm going to remove the Daily Dilbert, even though it's cool. It takes way too long to load and it's again a big blob of mess at the top of every page. So goodbye, even though it's cool.
On yet ANOTHER note: PennMUSH - I've been looking at the idea of sql control within Penn. I've never gotten MySQL to work properly, so I've never gotten website packages such as Wiki or Mambo to install. But Penn allows for other database types such as postgresql and sqlite. I'm grabbing the packages for those. Oh..postgre is 40MB, but sqlite is like 500K. So guess which one I'm grabbing on a dialup connection.
Anyhow, I'm not sure HOW I'll use it, but I want to at least try to make a db work with Penn, just to see if I can.
What else? Sister and I've been home all week, as Dad and Mom went to Estes Park for their anniversary (29th). So it's been a time of Star Trek and boredom. Well, not so much boredom. There's plenty to do, but it's not all FUN. Anyway, they're coming home later this afternoon I think.
Good note about my computer re-image: I've finally installed all updates and software back to what it was, minus a few things I never used. Of course, I've always had problems with bootup and things, and I've always meant to isolate the problem child, but I never have. And with this re-image, I STILL didn't. I've a few large software packages I always install, such as Photoshop, DVDit, MS Office, Messenger, etc.. and always somewhere between then and the next re-image, either bootup takes forever or the computer freezes for the first five minutes after connecting to the Internet. So I'm not sure who the culprit is, even now. But we'll see if I can't catch it this time.
