In preparation for moving, the_max0r, my mac mini, as well as quark, what you know as http://darkvoyager.com will be going offline today, until approximately the 1st week of April. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. My primary XP box is also going down, in preparation for !SMACKAGE! once I arrive in Texas.

No one, of course, is more affected by this than me. I'm losing my iTunes database (which I cannot connect to my laptop as the drive is HFS formatted), and my beloved Gallery. This will of course affect some of the entries on my livejournal, as well as other shares I have on outside forums. My DSL will be active, however until Friday, the 27th, as I will have my laptop up and running until then.

So far, I have three days to have my P.O.D.S. delivered and loaded, the hitch put on the Cav and the trailer attached, and the DSL and alarm system turned off. I have to have the phone turned off and get my wife a cell phone. I also require an oil change and a brake job. Lots yet do, in so little time. I pack the car Thursday evening, I'm off to Wichita Friday morning, and in Texas Saturday afternoon.




In other news danzigfried is sending me the DVD Box set of Hyperdrive. How cool is that? I know celtmanx will enjoy it, and I can't wait to unveil this to drax0r. Thanks danzig, that's an awesome surprise!

Little girl is ill. Based on her symptoms and the run-time the entire family experienced while she was gone, she'll be better tomorrow. Concerning, however, the maturity level of boys vs. girls, I can now definitively add this to my findings: My 7-year old boy held the 'barf bucket' in his hands as he vomited all over the floor. My 4-year old daughter, however, had a much shorter learning curve, using it immediately upon my explanation of what it was for, and how to use it. Far less mess.

I suppose I really ought to sign off now, and pull the plug on my servers.

I did. That's why I asked, "Why?"

Because in the middle of the routine he talks about how he collects barf bags. He then goes on to talk about how the instructions on them are so complicated and further acts out how one would read this when they are ready to heave.

And how exactly was I supposed to gather that by clicking on the link? Just curious.

Its not immediately apparent why you think I would enjoy it. Please explain.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that those are funny to people like you, who don't live it every day. If your daughter woke you up in the middle of the night barfing, and you had to clean the floor and her clothes and strip and remake her bed and re-dress her and get her back to bed, you too might find that DVD less funny.

And for the record, barf (or barf related paraphernalia) doesn't make me giggle. I was merely using that as an example of the maturity differences between girls & boys. Here's another:

My daughter mastered utensils at the age of three. My son is seven and still has difficulty understanding the concept of the spoon.

My apologies. Your post served as a memory trigger.

"Why a spoon, sir?"
"It's dull. It'll hurt worse, stupid!"

Cousin, if memory serves. My wife and I quote that back and forth to each other all the time ;)

I actually couldn't tell you where it's from. We used to quote the above lines when we were kids. I always thought it was from a Robin Hood spoof.

Very close indeed, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. The one with Kevin Costner.

Sadly, I still can't identify any of his work nor have I seen any (to my knowledge).

I can't wait for the Gallery to be back up and running. Keep me posted.

Sorry to hear about little girl! Give her a big hug and kiss from Aunt Carla.

Will do. Hopefully, she'll sleep through the night tonight! What a vomitous nightmare last night was.

Congrats on getting your daughter to use the pail instead of the floor. :-)

Remember in times like these... "I love my children." ;-)

Well, yeah. Thankfully she did this on the week I was off work ;)

Sick:

*smile*

Yeah. I'm sure she enjoyed having Daddy there while she was sick.

I know growing up that Daddy always was a lot more helpful in making be feel better while sick then Momma. Just because he would take the time to hold me and read books, or whatever. Where-as mom would clean or whatever and if you needed her you had to yell.

tell that to the quantum physicists who worked on the project. I'm sure they'd be thrilled to discuss your opinion.
