Hi all. If anyone noticed the downtime for nazareth this morning, it was because I was trying (unsuccessfully) to upgrade my firewall and also because Melissa and I are re-arranging the computer room. We’re taking out the table that was way too big for the room. It’s much nicer in here without it.
I also finally got a chance to install the monitor arm that I drug out of a dumpster in California last summer (I had to wait for a skunk to get _out_ of the said dumpster before I could get in). It’s really cool. A tad overkill, but cool nonetheless.
In other news, I committed a first today: I bought power tools. I bought a Ryobi three-pack with a circular saw, a reciprocating saw, and a drill/screw gun. It also had a nifty flash-light in there which also runs off the phatty 18volt batteries that came with the set. Apparently the flashlight doesn’t count though, because it’s called a “three-pack” on the box. Oh well. I’ve been using the screw gun and drill left and right. It’s nice to finally have schtuff like that. Borrowing is fine, but it gets old eventually. I’m sure Dad and Jerry will be glad that I’m not constantly borrowing theirs. So I’m pleased.
We’re still looking for bookshelves. I have no idea where I should buy such a thing. I’m price shopping. Furniture is not something I’m familiar with.
