I May Go For Safeway Deli Tonight


This one picture says more than enough about my feelings for Windows 10. And Microsoft. I switched to Linux Mint and I have been way more satisfied than I ever was with Windows in any flavor. Sure, I used Windows for years; but I think I was waiting until Linux “grew up” and got to be a full fledged operating system.

Oh, unfortunately, there are two or three programs that I still need to keep a VM of Windows 7 around for. Once someone gets off their duffs and ports Windows Live Writer and VideoMach(ine) over to Linux I’ll even be able to get rid of that. I’m pretty sure that will happen one day. Honestly, most times I can’t tell I’m not in Windows.


And I wouldn’t mind if Flight Simulator X worked in Linux. X-Plane is cool, but, I have a lot of time, effort, and money tied up in FSX. Wish I could port my planes over to X-Plane. Ah well.

Not a whole lot going on today. Made a trip to the Vape Shop in Bremerton for a new iLeaf battery thingie. Nice ride. Netflix came in. Took the Dog for a walk between the raindrops. The usual chores. Working on a piwigo gallery of SWMBO (some really early pictures). Resident Evil marathon going on in the background.


Safeway Deli. Well, SWMBO is making a trip to the Temple and won’t be home until really late. I don’t feel like cooking. Safeway Deli is 5 minutes away. Sounds Good!

Which it wasn’t. I’ll never get one of those oriental dinners for one again. It was filling; but didn’t taste worth crap. Maybe I needed BBQ sauce on that chicken?


No Net Thursday.

I am having just a Hell of a time setting up this MyDlink crap for my ShareCenter NAS thingie. All the settings seem to be right, but I haven’t been able to access the damned thing except in Dolphin (file manager) or intranet. Works fine that way; but I want to be able to let my Father-In-Law access it from Ohio. This is just plain kicking my ass. Can you tell I’m frustrated?


Spent almost a couple of hours looking through my e-mail and stuff when SWMBO sent me an e-mail asking “Do you have Mom’s e-mail address?” Yeah, I set up that tablet  before we sent it off to her, but I don’t remember everything about it. So I spent awhile looking through my e-mails for a test e-mail that I might have sent from the new tablet. Looked through all my contacts (and deleted a shit-load of them). No Joy. No papers laying around with any of that on it.


Made some of that bag of garlic chicken in the freezer for dinner. It was okay but had way too many carrots. Other than that it wasn’t too bad. Add a bit of Jello afterwards.


Oh, made a trip to Allyn to go to the Vape Shop there and buy another elink battery thingie. Place went out of business. Vape Shops just don’t seem to last long around here. So, tomorow evening when I go to pick SWMBO up (like I do every Friday) I’ll go a bit early and hit the Vape Shop in Bremerton.. Would like to get a new one and get it charged before our day trip this weekend.

SWMBO missed her ferry so her son is picking her up in Bainbridge. Phew. It’s 2130 and I’m making a road-Country directory so I’ve been listening to a lot of Country. Phew.


Back To SSDD Wednesday

Even had some rain (and getting kind of breezy) out there. So I didn’t get as much done as I have the past couple of days; juat the usual chores is almost about all.


Did make a trip to the Post Office early and stopped on the way back for a Safeway Breakfast Burrito.

That’s what my existence has been reduced to.


SWMBO got home from work, stopped long enough to pee and give me a kiss (NOT at the same time) and is off to the church to tie a quilt. I’m kind of waiting for the MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Evening Chat Net which may, or may not, happen at 1930.


Well, it weren’t really a net; but several folks checked in to just shoot the breeze. More than if we had had a net; which is why the Net control suspended the Wednesday Net in the first place. Ah well.

Anywho, that’s really about all for today. Don’t know why I bore y’all to tears posting.
