Boing Boing: In South Bronx: “Free Technical School in basement” This is SO cool it makes my head swim!
Miserly, I have been scuttling about gathering PLT and hoarding it for the arrival of Elwood 2.0 (I consider myself more of an intermediary beta, say Elwood 1.39a build 448, whereas our kid will be a more fully realized deliverable). the trouble with all this hoarding is that my time caps out at 120 hours and after that I’m essentially working strictly for the man so, like a pool in the rainy season, I have to keep draining it from time to time. the long holiday weekend will work out well as I only will need to tap 24 hours to net myself a full week off.
Not that I have no grand plans for my brief vacation. Instead I have a long list of tasks and chores to work my way through and with a scant five months until the baby arrives I best get working. The nursery is the server room as well as the dumping ground for the flotsam and jetsam of our move some eighteen months ago. I’ve made a good dent on cleaning it out but I still need to find a home for our bikes (no basement) as well as get up into the attic and run wiring to move the servers into the library/dog’s room/atrium which brings me to the next task.
Like domino’s this is all dependent on me moving all my books and putting up floor to ceiling shelves for the books. At the moment they are triple stacked on el cheapo pressboard bookcases and piled up on the floor as well as around the house. It is a disaster. My hope is that mounting the shelves to the wall will give us enough space to spread out with them but it likely will be a solution that only works for a couple of years, I’ll need more space eventually. This is not too mention that I need to find room for the servers as well.
On top of that the gutters need to be cleaned, garden weeded, and lawn mowed. In the end, however, there is a 99% chance of and 80% probability that I’ll lay around the house in my underwear catching up on my reading. Management might not be too pleased about productivity levels though.
Flag-burning amendment fails by a vote. Yup, tackling the tough fucking issues. Fuckwits.
Seeing as the 1/3 life crisis as come and went I’ve decided to rebrand. 0.333 is now know as elwoodicious. The reasons stated are as follows:
- elwoodicious is audacious
- elwoodicious is delicious
- elwoodicious is gracious
- elwoodicious can be salacious
- elwoodicious is occasionally loquacious
- elwoodicious is tenacious
So it is decreed.
