the D2M House - March 2001 (Volume 3 Edition 2)

Enjoy this page? Vote.... The continuing saga that has become known as Family News is here again. This is somewhat of a mini-series covering past/present/recent events in and around the house. This is one page of several others that "getting better as we go" keeps you up to speed of events around here. The idea that this may appear as a monthly thing is false. It is written when the weather keeps me indoors or when the notion strikes me. Remember this is not only for those far away but for those of us who have a moments to spend during the day when reading is much better. Take a moment to write and let us know events unfolding at your end.
|Before||It's like reading old newspapers, "It's News to Me"||After|
20010301 - The girls have made Pub Crawling an art form. Green beer day is not being ignored.
20010315 - Whaaddaya think about this Napster thing? Other file archives/directories I'm sure will live, the recording industry has a lot of work on their hands if they want to stop it. It (the recording industry, RIAA. et al) might be too late to join the world and embrace the instant spread of music. They will "tax" it to death.
20010301 - Another Pub Crawler, thankfully a paid designated driver is at the helm. Ya got to hand it to the girls, go and party and yet someone else drives from place to place each time arriving in a $100,000 vehicle. You have to ignore the fact the vehicle has a bus company logo on the side of it....
20010316 - Again, the old adage, "take care" are very profound words indeed. These two words have several meanings that apply to each day without notice how ever you define the journey.
Just to keep the health story interesting Mrs. M has had not one but two root canal sessions done. The theives at the place they call the dentist office are once again able to keep their villas in far off lands, thanks to us. For you kids at home it's about $1000 per hour to stay in the chair at the endodontist. Makes you not want to go! Tell me, which pain is worse?
The institute (of higher learning) is good and bad. The institute is alright, it's the frequency of the visits. Lately 4 days per week might be pushing it, but she is a trooper and although I am worried that this might still be premature to go this often. The pay stub is a concern yet to sacrifice ones health it is a no brainer. I know you can relate to this but we must come to realize that to take the small step toward recovery you have to put up with a bit of discomfort.
20010318 - Last time did I mention a new G4 is the newest member of the family? Not a new but a spanking new G4! The 466MHz G4. After a bit of pesky trouble with monitor things such as the USB port failure we are looking and feeling pretty much at home now.
I still have speed shock and although the new chair has helped with taking a deep relaxing breath before turning it on helps. My gawd it's quick. The ad's saying supercomputer are not wrong, I have testimony on my desk. The family tree project re-calculates and presents itself in under a minute, sadly before it was over an hour to do the same and I was happy then. Words are not available to describe the emotions now.
20010318 - Technology Gloat of the Month: Proud owner of a AppleTalk Bridge! (this is a gadget to bridge AppleTalk/LocalTalk to Ethernet) Some would say legacy technology, but I say show me something better!
We are waiting and standing by to solve another house (reno) emergency.
