OSX Mail is pissing me off slightly. It would not let me 'add' unixwolf mail (with advanced options) because wdt mail was already in place. I deleted wdt mail, added unixwolf mail, then added wdt mail back because it didn't require any advanced options. Sweet, I thought - two mail servers being tapped by one client. It didn't quite work out that way. unixwolf mail downloaded multiple copies of each message I retain on the server (several years worth) adding something like 15,000 messages to in my inbox overnight. Furthermore, I couldn't 'turn it off' since it was sharing the same incoming folder as my wdt mail now, and neither can be changed without deleting the entire mess and starting from scratch. Perhaps I shouldn't have attempted this so late last night.
Speaking of late last night - I couldn't sleep. At all. For those of you who know me, you know this is rarely an issue. But sure enough, I tossed and turned all night long. I got out of bed early and made it to the office by 0800 amid surprised looks from my staff. "Perhaps, tonight." I tell myself in hopes of making it to bed early.
SomeBritInMass eluded to Bengals as "ferocious fur-covered thugs with razor blades" and he couldn't be more wrong. My kitties are the most fun, loving, cuddly creatures I've seen in a long time. But Niobe, the most....um, complete of the two, has a problem with errant elimination (don't worry drax0r, I won't tell any stories of yours). This has been a problem from the start, but when she urinated on an entire basket of folded, clean, children's clothes - that was the last straw for my wife. As I have been researching feline behavorial problems, I have learned much, and I am sure will be able to enjoy the comfort and company of my little wildcat.
BLAST FROM THE PAST Excerpt from my Feburary 16th post:
The kids were in the other room watching television the other night when they came into the living room to get me. They were very excited about something. The both of them. They each grabbed a hand and tried to extract me from the couch. I relented and followed them into the other room. They sat on the edge of the bed, and patted a space between them. "Sit here, HURRY!" I sat down in front of an infomercial for a mop, and looked at both of them. What did you want me to see? Did I miss it? Both pair of eyes were GLUED to the screen. "No, daddy, this is it - watch!" I watch a man demonstrate the mop on a variety of substances. The children were awe-struck. About two and a half minutes later, they show the mop, and the price. $19.95. "This is the part!" My son announces. My daughter squeals with delight. Not one, but TWO! TWO mops for the price of one! the television announces. Both children looked as though they had seen the real Santa Claus. "TWO DADDY! You can get TWO mops!" They were very excited about the mops. I was speechless.
I always get tired of hearing how men have kept women down. We invented disposable diapers only when we began changing them, we invented the highly uncomfortable bra to highlight the bosom. Men invented pantyhose, and men invented the Epilady. I get tired of these accusations, and though it has taken me 15-years and my entire family fortune, I now have my stock answer: THERE SHOULD BE MORE WOMEN ENGINEERS!
From Yahoo! News (thanks galinda822):
ARLINGTON, Texas - The school district here has expanded its dress codes to include mouths — and earlobes.
Students may no longer wear mouth jewelry known as "grillz" — shiny teeth caps — or the earlobe-stretching practice known as "gauging."
"The district is having to respond to fads because they've become distracters or a safety hazard for those around them," said Malcolm Turner, the district's executive director of student services.
The nearby Irving, Grand Prairie and DeSoto districts also ban grillz, and some also address gauging — the process of placing increasingly large items in the ears to stretch the lobes.
But students said the body modification is simply self-expression.
"Really, a grill is just like an earring. It's fashion," said junior Devonte Wright, 16.
But school officials said they hoped to teach students that life would require them to follow specific regulations in specific settings.
"We want to instill in them a sense of modesty and a sense of community," said school board trustee Gloria Pena. "We're preparing them for the work force, and in the work force there are rules."
