RLF ate an Eggo today. An entire one.
DUAL MONITORS I’ve read so many articles and blogs about people increasing their productivity by having two monitors hooked up to their computer, that I decided I had to try it. Besides, all the pagination people at work have two monitors. (“Pagination,” for the uninitiated, is the process of placing items on a page, which[...]
If you want to read a really long and rambling complaint of mine, click here. It’s the promised complaint about all the crap that gets installed on new computers besides what you really need.
Thanks for the information, Cassie! (My cousin Cassie has just settled in Germany). To catch everyone up, Marline and I have been organizing our lives, developing routines, and getting used to married life. It’s fun, it’s frustrating, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. One thing is for sure — with Marline around, there is[...]
The Konawa Lady Tigers lost yesterday evening (Saturday), and thus were eliminated from the playoffs. They were the last Seminole County girls’ team left alive in the playoffs. So now, only one team remains — The Wewoka Tigers. Last night, they beat Latta in a rematch (last time, Latta won by one point in a[...]

Busy day for me. My managing editor is on vacation again (I know! She was JUST on vacation!) But that’s the way it goes. At least, this time, she’s only taking three days (today, Friday, and Saturday.) Tonight, I’m going to Konawa for another City Council meeting. This one won’t be as exciting as the[...]
Well, I think I got this Windows XP thing figured out. I updated to the newer OS last night, and it’s been screwing with my head ever since. Finally, today on my lunch break, after a 30-minute call to India (or someplace) I am connected to the internet. Just barely, though. I only THOUGHT my[...]
