One Day Until 24

With Fox delaying so many of their television premiers I almost lost track of the fact that 24 opens its season tomorrow night. I’ll definitely be tuning in.

Although, I still haven’t watched the first season, I got hooked on the second season two thirds of the way through and then got caught up on everything thanks to the power of BitTorrent. It’s definitely going be a lot more fun to be on top of things from the beginning this time around.

Getting Ready For Panther

Well, my copy of Panther should be ordered on Monday (work’s paying for it– yay!) so I probably only have a week or so to start getting my PowerBook ready. It looks like there are some pretty significant issues with external Firewire drives under 10.3 though which is disappointing. Hopefully they’ll develop a fix for those problems quickly.

Weather Madness

The weather today here in Spokane is looking a lot closer to normal after a few days of unseasonably warm weather. It’s pretty amazing that just a couple days back we had a high in the mid 70’s. It’s almost November for goodness sakes.

Unfortunately today’s abrupt return to temperature normalcy came with a lot of wind overnight and my Monday leaf blowing handiwork has essentially been erased. On the other hand I actually enjoy using my trusty Weedeater Barracuda quite a bit after twenty odd years of raking. There’s something innately cool about being able herd leaves with the barrel of a roaring 195 mph wind blaster.

Speaking of weather, rssweather.com is a very cool new weather service for RSS newsreader junkies like myself. It’s very easy to set up feeds to monitor multiple cities that you may be interested in.

In my case: Spokane, Olympia, Tempe, Jersey City, Seattle and for a little international flavor: St. Petersburg.

Tired and Sleepy

I’m feeling both tired and sleepy at the moment. I think the long meeting that I had this morning contributed to this state, but I did stay up a little later than usual last night. Not to mention the fact that my morning slumber was interupted around the 5 o’clock hour by an unnecessary request to take the dog out. I got out of bed and started walking down the hall to our back door, expecting Gitte to follow and instead she just moved into my spot on the bed. Doh!

I could really go for a nap right about now.
