2. June, 2003 - post-weekend update
- It can be frustrating when your parents start forgetting things, usually because they don’t forget the right things. Yesterday, my mom forgot I was coming up to visit and bringing lunch. Luckily, I got there before she’d started cooking something for herself, but she hadn’t forgotten that I’d called the Sunday before and told her I wasn’t going to make it (which was when I told her that I’d be up yesterday). She’s doing pretty well, and it was a relatively pleasant visit, though, followed by an evening trip to a bar with a gal-friend of mine. And as if to emphasize that it wasn’t a date of any sort, she introduced me to another gal she thinks might be a potential girlfriend for me. I guess we’ll see. At the moment, I’m more concerned about waking up enough to get to work for the day.
- Speaking of dating (or not dating), maybe I need to add Score Brownie Points to my arsenal. After all, they nearly called it
GuaranteedNookie.com. See, you send them money, and now and again they send you a gift that you can give to the woman in your life. Oh, wait. Cart before horse problem.
- Maybe the people who are taking pictures of “Barbra Streisand’s” coast should send her lawyers a copy of The Photographers Right.
- Speaking of photography, Kodak’s Toxic Moments present a pretty darned good reason to switch to digital.
- Charges fly as bicyclists and police clash in Buffalo Critical Mass ride. It sounds like both the police and the riders got out of hand, and when that happens, it’s pretty easy to guess who’s going to get beaten up. [some guy]
- Nebraska considers war against Iowa because too many Nebraska residents are crossing the border to gamble in Iowa. About $250 million per year crosses to Council Bluffs, IA.
- SCO’s CEO says buyout could end Linux fight. Ah-hah! So now we discover the real reason for SCO’s recent behavior. I still think that Novell GPLing System V would be a good solution. Preferably before an IBM buyout, but either way would work.
- AOL Agrees to Get Under Microsoft’s Desk is a concise summary of what Microsoft and AOL got out of their recent deal. [flutterby]
