Yesterday’s Racquetball Game
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:29 pm)

I forgot to mention yesterday's game. After doing our normal weightlifting workout, MP and I went to play racquetball. I won the first game, though it went long, about 22 minutes or so. Our second game was not looking good for me, I was behind 9 points, it was 3 to 12. I started scoring points, though, and came back to win 15-14. I was laughing so hard, I couldn't believe he basically handed me the game after being so far ahead...

Bad Computer Mojo
Posted in General
Afternoon watch, 6 bells (3:08 pm)

Today is bad computer karma day or something. I've been putting these new systems together and one of them is just not working. I think one of the hard drives went tango uniform. They're new, though. 80Gb SATA drives with an 8Mb buffer. Striped RAID doesn't work too well with just one though. The computer keeps locking up after a few minutes' use. Luckily, I haven't finished one of the other computers yet, so I can test its new drives in the machine that's not working and hopefully identify the problem...

In any case, it's lucky I am that L is coming over tonight, because I really don't want to look at my computer after today.

A Night At Home With L
Posted in General
Forenoon watch, 3 bells (9:54 am)

After I got home last night, I did some housework and made some cookies. L's coming over tonight and wants to see pictures of the places I've been. Since a lot of them are slides (from my England/Scotland trip), I got the old slide projector out (it's in terrible shape, but it's so expensive to buy a new one), and dug up some photo albums from my time in Taiwan. It should be a fun time. She's bringing some cookies she made, so we're having a "bake-off". I'm pretty sure I'm going to lose, though. 😉

Birthdays Yesterday

Forenoon watch, 3 bells (9:52 am)

I forgot to mention, yesterday was the birthday of both my youngest brother, Wesley, as well as my niece Lisette (Betsy and Todd's daughter). I called Betsy and said Happy Birthday to Lisette over the phone (they live in Virginia Beach, VA), and I saw Wesley at my dad's house.
