Well, the show is in the can, I got my required 3 hours or so of sleep after I got home, and all is well!

What an utterly UTTERLY uplifting feeling it is to get a call from another programmer commenting on how good your show is. That's truly amazing. It was a pretty good set if I do say so myself.

CURSE of the day.... to sites such as MSN and Half.com. There is now a NEW trick lurking at some of these sites! If there is a way to turn them off I have yet to find it. When you log on as usual and browse to your usual areas, a click will now take you to an AD vs. where you want to go! For example, every time I click my hotmail button on MSN I get taken to an ad for MSN 8. On HALF, when I search for something, I get taken to the Ebay page! LOVERLY! Backing up and doing it again seems to work, but it's annoying when it happens EVERY time!

Happy note again.. my hats off to Bruce and Out of my Head this morning. Good stuff!

Reuters | Latest Financial News / Full News Coverage LIGHTNING!?!?

How utterly...

ajc.com | News | Massive power outages This is a quote from the story.. one reason I think it should be followed..

"The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission attributed the blackout to failure at a Manhattan power plant.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency, on the other hand, said the breakdown began at a power plant in Ottawa and spread to other areas.

Oops! Get yer story straight, would ya?
--- Okay... maybe I'm overreacting. BUT.. we get the wonderful little net virus that picked at one of my computers.. then a MASSIVE power outage.. not related, we are told..

I guess with things the way they are, it is a kneejerk reaction to theorize on my own instead of taking the information the media gives me. Maybe they're right this time. Who knows?

BUT.. if it turns out to be something nazty.. you heard it here first, kids!

NEWS! MASSIVE power outage stretching from Cleveland into Canada and into NY. TOO much stress on it NOT being terrorism. Study this one closely..

It's after 4 pm, my work week is done, Dave Attell is playing on my 'puter. All is well. It never occurred to me that I might actually want to plan one of my Friday shows. I normally grab discs, load 'em up and head on in. I do like having the option to play what I want, but I know that I ALWAYS leave something behind. It's tough creating a truly varied show. While I don't mind some repetition, I try to make every show a little different. I might have to dig around the station library tonight to see what looks good.

Wow. Thought I'd have a lot in me this afternoon, but I guess not!

For those of you who live in Cali, vote Coleman! Yep! Our li'l friend Gary Coleman is in the race of 130+ people who want to be California's governor! How'd you like to be working for the news THAT night?! The Daily show had a great rundown of the issue last night. Apparantly they created a new random alphabet. For example it's now R W Q X M L P A and so on.. Apparantly, they create a list of candidates and put them in order using this system. THEN. starting in the 2nd districd, the name on top goes to the bottom and so on and so forth etc.. you know..

Ought to be interesting..

The heat is back. tipped 90 degrees again.

No deep thoughts just now. Two heavy days of work does that to a guy.

Egads. Not a lot happening as of late. I just caught the last part of the Blues Brothers 2000 on VH1. What a shame that a movie with such rockin' music should be so bad. It's watchable to me.. the same way some bad comedies are. If I know that going in, it's alright. Unfortunately, paying my hard earned bucks at the theatre, I was a bit disappointed.
The net seems to still be a mean mistress. I have been a member of mypoints for several years. It's a great site, and if you want to join, lemme know so I can get points for referring you! Generally, you get regular e-mails.. and a few points to read it.. and more if you respond. it's not bad. What's better is that they are teamed up with various merchants, and you earn points for purchasing over the net. I've racked up my share, and had earned a handful or two with my Digicam purchase. BUT.. for some reason the link didn't seem to collect the info.. or something.. and they never got posted.. BUT.. after many e-mails, hopefully help is on the way. I purchased this in.. oh.. June I think.. at least they are being helpful. It seems that once upon a time customer service was being held hostage by net biz, but that seems to be changing, I hope.

Did you see mars? I didn't. I need to read more about it. I saw some cool mummies on Discovery Channel! You're never too old to learn or be fascinated. If mummies aren't your speed, shark attacks are on the way!

Digital cable arrives Tuesday!
