Misc

Got vmware 4.0.15 running win2k under Linux 2.6.0-test-bk8+vmware patch. Goal: play with Windows iTunes. Fun stuff. I like the included radio streams. Too bad it took 4 reboots to get Win2k fully patched. Why can't Windows update do it in one reboot? (or zero, rather)

A salesperson came in the office to sell phone/net access and recognized LJ/me from when I was in the Oregonian. Amusing. But better was when I called CDW last week or so to order monitors and the random saleslady I was assigned to knew of LiveJournal. ("Oh yeah, my friends and I use that....") Then it's always, "Wow, did you think it'd get this big?" or, "Must feel pretty good to have a hobby project turn into such a big thing." Ferrell put up a NO SOLICITORS sign. Problem solved.

I ordered a hot tub. Spend the weekend digging a hole and shoveling dirt/rock with my parents to build the pad. Electrician coming Thursday. Concrete guy coming sometime. Hot tub coming Nov 6. That'll be fun. I wanted to do this last year, but never got around to it, and then summer came.

We ordered a bunch of LCDs but it's taking forever for them to be delivered. They're just down the street but we can't pick them up.
