Went to the park and took pics of the kids:

Relocated and booted the Octane. Could not get it to init a display. Set it aside.
Dusted off and powered on quark, my Solaris 9 box.
Tried to remember how to use unix, managed to mount the CDROM and patched it.
Removed stupid webmin & communigate, changed registrar entry to reflect new addy.
Rebuilt my XP box from scratch, though the Lexmark website was down all day, so I couldn't install the printer driver, the largest of the reasons I went back to XP.
Smoked a cigar (or two) with neighbors outside as we're enjoying low 60's here and new lady neighbor was out.
Met another lady who worked on mainframes in the Air Force, and who was stationed in England.
My wife spied glühwein at Whole Foods and we picked up four bottles. I also found this little gem, a Wizen Icebock. It was as rich as port, and made my tummy happy.

Watched Mr. & Mrs. Smith until bedtime, where I played with routing all evening, after disabling
my modem from too much tweaking. Hense, I was offline most of the day. What a pain in my balls. My
boy and I enjoyed some Playstation together, and with XP back online I was able to reload my daughter's
princess games, so she was thrilled. My wife was in and out most of the day, so I really don't know
what she was doing - I saw her only intermittently throughout the day.

Got lots of good sleep in too. It was the best time away from work I've had in a year.

Oh, so what your saying is the time you spent with us last spring was miserable. Gee thanks!!! I did not realize we were such terrible hosts.

Alas, you've figured it out! It wasn't the endless hours of driving that gigantic truck, nor the loading/unloading of it. It was you!

Your kids are growing up.

How could you forget how to use Unix?

Unlike the bicycle simile, unix is a 'use or lose' skill.

no shit. But still, a man of your skill set...did you consider typing with your tounge?

Educate me - what is glühwein? (Yes I could Google it, but what's the fun in that).

Glad to hear you had a good weekend! :)

In Germany, it's spiced red wine you drink hot during the holidays! I'm going to Wichita for Christmas, and my folks are meeting us there, so I'm going to bring a bottle since my dad was also in Germany. It'll be quite a treat for him too.

Please tell him not to play with his balls at Christmas dinner. I don't think it is appropriate during dinner.

I'll be sure to mention it to him.

Hey, that park looks familiar!

Glad to hear you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

Would have been better if you had been here for cards!

Again, I apologize for missing the fun!

Mmmmm, glühwein, hot spicy glühwein.... mmmmmm.

Gooey goo for chewy chewing, that's what the goo-goose is doing!

I'll save a bottle for you, buddy.
