Lucky for us, Hurricane Dennis took a surprise turn and so we are getting loads of rain, but so far are faring well. We’ve lost power a few times, but UPS kept our machines and LAN online so all’s cool. The only worry remaining is the rain, we live in a flood zone; although not as bad as other parts of B’ham, it still collects a lot of water so if/when we go to work tomorrow, it will be interesting. :???:
I worked some more on my blog, just adding minor changes really. Added a syndication link in the footer. Also updated the credits and added links to my plugins authors’ websites.
I’ve been going through my coppermine gallery reading some of the comments left by friends and random visitors. Apparently some lugnut thought it would be funny to give every freakin’ image a 0 rating … so I removed access to the rating for all users.
Got a call from Mysfyt today … God, it seems like I retired from the Scene so long ago. Seems almost like a different lifetime. It was fun gabbing and catching up with her on everything that’s gone on since I left. (Plst, my deepest condolences!)
It’s kind of funny though, one of the things I was talking to her about was that I was just thinking the other night about people I had met … some nearly 10 years ago … one of which was BluDragN. He and I met on alt.2600.warez years prior to my joining PC. A likeable guy, very kind-hearted. He died suddenly of an aneurysm late March of 2002. His parents used to have a memorial page with his obituary on it. They’ve since taken it down and just have pictures up. I’ve really missed him.
It’s funny … I have plenty of acquaintances, but my true friends are mostly people I have met online, whom I will most likely never meet face to face. A very select few whom I considered to be more like family. Rich was one of them, as was Bobbi. I still miss her too.
Anyways, it’s getting late and I’ve got to get up early. I think I might play a little Vtm:Bloodlines for a bit, then try to finish Who Am I?
