Chongo has a new pastime. He printed off a copy of one of Amos's pictures from the member photos section and has put it up on his office wall. He leans back in his chair, smokes a cigar, drinks his whisky, and lazily throws darts at the picture while waiting for a client to arrive with a case to solve. He awards himself another shot of whisky each time he manages to put a dart right in the end of Amos's nose.

Well, no, I do not have LightScribe but as I understand it it can only do grayscale stuff anyway.

I can now easily print a color image onto a CD, with pretty blue water and green hills ...

and my name in purple ...

surrounded by pink pinches of cotton candy for emphasis, ...

with the play list appearing in tiny mauve bold on the horn of a friendly scarlet unicorn...


if I want.

If the tables are so taxing, why not just table the taxes for now? Turnabout is fair play, no?

Sorry I didn't respond to that, Amos. It has been a most taxing day.

I'm stopping while I'm ahead. I think. I can't make any sense out of that stupid state sales tax table.

Dammit, the PostePixie bit me. I was going to ask whether anyone sees a bit of irony in the contradistinction: I rub out an imaginary character of LH's and am assailed for my moral turpitude; Little Hawk has one of his imaginary characters try to rub out one of our real authors here at Mom's, and a tired silence is heard throughout the mansions of my Mom's house.

Some kind of double standard, I wot.

...people who run the Lava Hot Springs mineral pools. No sulfur, just hot to warm (112F and downwards) pools to soak in for a couple of hours. And I'll do it again tomorrow morning.

Dear Shame:

I knew that you'd miss me but I never knew how much. Just to show you how much I care, at my own personal expense I'm going to have a guy named "Big Tony" DiAnnunzio and a couple of his friends come over from Toronto to "visit" you. You'll like Tony: he too has spent some time in some of the better prisons of Canada and the US. In fact, he liked Canada so much the US sent him back there! I'll see that he rents a boat and takes you for a nice boat ride, and that he shows you how an anchor works.

Have fun!!

Your pal,
Rapaire

What a shame! And I was going to tell Rapaire about the song I heard on our public radio station's Sunday acoustic music program today. It was bluegrassish (though Bill Monroe would never call it "bluegrass") with the usual 'grass intrumentation of guitar, banjo, mandolin and Dobro PLUS A TRUMPET! It was cool! A Dobro and trumpet together in the same band, and it WORKED! Who'da thunk it?

Too bad Rapaire couldn't have hung on for a few more hours so he could have gone to the other side knowing that Bee-dubya finally heard some trumpet music that didn't suck.

A curse upon the weary bleary minds of Epson.

I have just persisted for four solid hours debugging the Print to CD function of my little R800. I have succeeded. Buried within the arcane wisdom of the leprechauns, trolls, geeks and weirdoes at Epson there is a secret routine for making the R800 printer behave when asked to print to a CD. After due tribulation and bloody finger-pads and a great loss of temper being confronted with meaningless, non-relevant, non-helpful error messages from Epson, I have found the Golden Key, buried in an obscure online forum somewhere, and have conquered the beast and made it print directly to / on a CD. A thousand trolls and dwarves fled in fear and loathing when I raised the Golden Key high over my head and sent my newly printed CD flashing among them, lopping off heads and fingers on every hand.

But once I got that out of the way I am pretty happy with the result.


A

Oh, for those who wish to know the arcane formula and Spelle to COnquere Ye R800 CD:

Printing to a CD on the R800 from 10.4.2 does work - they key is to set up the Stylus Photo R800(Manual Feed) printer - which used to be more straight forward before 10.4. Just spent three hours figuring this out. Here's how to do it:

To build the Stylus Photo R800 in 10.4 you need to directly connect via USB to the printer (won't work over an Airport).

Now open Printer Setup Utility. The Epson R800 printer will show up immediately in the list before you – DO NOT ADD THAT PRINTER!!!!! Click "More Printers" and select "Epson USB".

The Epson R800 Printer will show up again and, much more importantly, there is a "Page Setup" pulldown on this dialog that will allow you to select "Manual Feed". Select it.

Now you can click "Add" and there will be a "Stylus Photo R800 (Manual Feed)" printer in the printer list.

When printing to CD:

1. Load the caddy with the blank CD.
2. Move the output tray of the R800 to its upper position by lifting it and settling it into its upper slot.
3. Press the page feed key (icon is a sheet of paper going into the trash).
4. When the caddy has completely finished positioning itself, go to your CD Label program such as Epson Print CD or Discus.
5. Make sure Page Setup is set for A4 paper.
6. Select File==>Print and choose the R800 Manual Feed printer.
7. Click Print.

The instructions in the manual will work now that this printer has been set up correctly.




I hasten to state this degree of technical foofaraw is NOT typical of Mac, and is attributable to Epson.

Quinque sine ceres in pace redundus, as the old saying goes. Everyone is in error in their own special way.

I have just spent an hour and a half listening to a most fascinating discussion at the large hall of the Encinitas Library, by a panel of ex-Peace Corps volunteers, describing their various experiences in Russia, the Ukraine, South Africa and Jamaica. A recruiter from the Corps conducted the presentation which was most intriguing. No upper age limit, all expenses paid, crude living conditions, force-fed language lessons, High Virtue beliefs, good medical care--the Peace Corps has it all. An adventure worth having. We are contemplating it as one path after retirement.

Tomorrow we will go to the home of The Oceanographer to watch the San Diego Chargers out-pass, out-run, out-block and out-kick the New York Jets for the championship of the National Football League, leading to their inevitable victory at the Super Bowl.

You first point is well taken. Indeed, it was a dark day when a musical friend of mine living in my own town of Orillia innocently drew my attention to Mudcat Cafe, thus luring me into an inescapable tarpit of time-wasting twaddle that would consume mega-parcels of my mental existence and render my life into a sorry shambles!

This friend, a former member of Mudcat Cafe, left it in a fury over "those f**king Americans" around about the time the USA made its decision to start bombing Afghanistan. She has never returned. My reaction to that war was rather similar to hers, but I stayed. (sigh)

And here I am to this day. Trapped like a fly on a fly strip.

As to your 2nd point... Ha! Very droll. I think that when it comes to self-admiration you have no rivals, except possibly for Shane McBride and Rapaire. Shane's self-admiration arises out of deep insecurity. Deep down he knows he's a major loser, but he covers it over with a show of bravado. I'm not sure what yours and/or Rapaire's arises out of.

After the quark-gluon plasma filled the universe for a few millionths of a second after the big bang, it was over 13 billion years until experimenters managed to recreate the extraordinarily hot, dense medium on Earth. The JET Collaboration, a team from six universities and three national laboratories led by Berkeley Lab's Nuclear Science Division, is now developing a new and highly detailed theoretical picture of this unique state of the early universe.

The Department of Energy's Office of Nuclear Physics recently named Berkeley Lab's Nuclear Science Division to lead a nine-institution collaboration investigating the "Quantitative Jet and Electromagnetic Tomography of Extreme Phases of Matter in Heavy-Ion Collisions" - JET, for short.

... The quark-gluon plasma filled the Universe a few millionths of a second after the big bang but instantly vanished, condensing into the protons and neutrons and other particles from which the present Universe descended.

Some 13.7 billion years later, experimenters recreated the quark-gluon plasma on Earth, using the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The first heavy-ion collisions occurred at RHIC in 2000, but confirming the occurence of the quark-gluon plasma in these events took several more years of data collection and analysis.

Freeing the quarks

Quarks come in three different "colors," and it takes three quarks to build a proton or a neutron; as carriers of the color charge, an aspect of the strong nuclear interaction, gluons literally glue the quarks together.

Under ordinary conditions neither quarks nor gluons are ever free. The farther apart they get, the stronger the force between them. Because mass and energy are interchangeable, as described by Einstein's E=Mc2, eventually the energy that would be needed to separate them goes into creating new bound quarks instead.

RHIC was designed to collide heavy nuclei (as heavy as gold, whose nucleus consists of 79 protons and 118 neutrons) at energies so high that during the near-light-speed collisions, conditions cease to be anything like ordinary. Dense, hot fireballs blossom in the collisions, forming a plasma in which neither quarks nor gluons are bound together; instead they move independently with almost complete freedom.


Above suggests we should be very careful around the duckdog, maybe spell words out instead of saying them, that sort of thing.

Mom,

It's been a wild couple of days. I planned to take a day off Thursday to go up and celebrate the imminent (or perhaps by then immediate) arrival of my second grandchild, a girl, due Thursday morning according to plan. Wednesday, as usual, up at five and off to the Orifice.

But then Weds afternoon just after work, the fracturing of the waters occurred. So, being just out of work, I throw some stuff in the car for the long watch and drive the long highway drive in dense rush hour traffic to Los Angeles. I arrive at St John's on Santa Monica Boulevard and spend the night hours doing the Paternity Watch thing with son and his mother in law. Around 1o30 she goes into the O?R for a C-section and around 1130 we are standing around googling at a beautiful brand new baby girl, a model of perfection in miniature. Her whole head is smaller than her father's beard.

Finally around 1230 I bid my fond adieux and get back on the 405 heading south for San Diego through the wee hour darkness. In places the road is twelve lanes wide and I am the only soul in sight. I pull into San Diego about 2 AM and fold up. The next morning I am back at work, having had my work week short-circuited and wildcat-flipped by a miracle.

So now there's a new gene-iteration in the pool. How about THEM apples, Maw???
