They used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob,
    When there were programs to parse, or lines to write, I was always there right on the job.
    They used to tell me I was building a dream, with a paperless office ahead,
    Why should I be standing in line, still working for some bread?

    Once I built a network, I made it run, made it under C.
    Once I built a network; now it's done. Brother, it can't run in XP.
    Once I built a server rack, up to the sun, germanium, copper, warez free;
    Once I built a server rack, now it's done. Brother, it can't run on XP.

       Once in vested suits, gee we looked swell,
       Full of that open source deedly Dum,
       Half a terabyte went slogging through Hell,
       And I was the kid with the drum!

    Say, don't you remember, you called me Al; it was Al that you'd need.
    Why don't you remember, I was your pal? Buddy, I can't work in XP.

Song to My XP Machine

Trash the file that took me all night long,
Open viruses from old Hong Kong,
Tell me that my file name's way too long!
Crash three times by tea.

Lose the email from my favorite gal,
Like some double crossing two-time pal,
But remember, when your router fails
You belong to me!

Mess around with folks in Cybertown
Tell me that my apps are closing down,
But recall when rebuilds come around,
You belong to me!

You won't get Disk Doctor
SOmewhere in MyFace
When you need fixing, you'll
Still be at my place!

So enjoy your high band-width exchange,
Cruise for teenie-boppers on the range,
Just remember when you're feeling strange,

You belong to...
You belong to...
You belong to...
Me!

My mama done tol' me
When I was in Fortran,
My mama done tol' me, hon,
A computer'll woo you,
And work magic for you
But when pressure is on,
A computer is two-base,
A worrisome thief
That'll lead you to grief
With blue screens in the night.

(Mama was very prescient.)

Amos - I've been doing battle with Gremlins and Glitches for too many years now. Even Bugs.

The ones I dread. . .

The ones that make me quiver in my seat. . .

The ones that make me wish to cower. . .

are known features

Suggest you scan the premises for Gremlin folk, MM. You may be under attack. People can say what they want about terrorists and Islamists and Bolsheviks and beatniks and such. But the REAL enemy of America is the race of tiny evil Gremlins who have drained over thrity-two trillion dollars from the work lives of Americans in the last five years, perpetrating just such small catastrophes as these.

Yes, Gremlins, my friend. The Blue Screen of Death is their logo, and the "General Error" message is their mantra. Kernel Panic is a high-ranking double agent in their secret army, dedicated to the overthrow of civilized computing everywhere.

You've never KNOWN terror until you have come face to face with a Gremlin about to slice into a file-allocation table or pour hydrochloric acid into a registry.

Hi b>MOM!
It's been an exciting morning - first we lost half our two phase power - which pretty well knowcked out our WAN for the 47 school districts we support - then the compressor for an air conditioner burned out because it was trying to run during a brown out - and we had to evacuate the building!

All before 2 hours at w*rk!

Steal it and sell to to a receiver of stolen goods -- fence posey.

I tried for years to succeed as a poet, but success simply eluded me. I'd often be found attempting to lure the Muse, calling "Here, poesy, poesy, nice poesy" but it never worked. Not even when I put out some nice warm milk. Finally, I took to writing invective and stories, but I was only going from pillory to prose while posing in poesy, so I went back to my True Love -- lies and puns.

Sting was bad, 'cuz he ad-libbed his

And he never will repent his
Egregious offense of electing to rhyme it with "apprentice".

Actually, Dumphuque is a subset of Bumphuque's population. That is to say, many found there are Dumphuques, but it is not necessarily the case that if in Bumphuque means one IS Dumphuque. And it is also true that there are no subsets within a Dumphuque which equal Bumphuque, the latter being a superset of any qualifying Dumphuque .

Hope this helps.

Think I'll mosey into the kitchen for another cuppa tea from the pot under the tea cosy next to the kettle.

Oregon, Stilly.

And it's tolerable here today, but 'sposed to get hotter thru the coming week. I'm having more problems with fleas (cat-borne, but they bite people too) than with the ragweed.

I did find some nice homeopathics to use for hay fever most of the time. Work pretty well.

As for my laundry, I usually take it to Seattle with me, as long as my machine is on the fritz.   (The place I stay has a high-end, water-efficient, energy-efficient machine and I can do some laundry while working on other things.)   But I occasionally have to go back to beating the clothes against the rocks in the Willamette. OK, not quite that bad, but my bathtub does get used for washing clothes from time to time.   I avoid the quarter-sucking machines as much as I can.

Which Portland, Genie?

Ragweed is in full force here right now, so no matter what the weather, some of us manage to be miserable anyway. It's Allegra for the time being.

Nice day today, though. Thanks for the suggestion to kick back. I still have some laundry to do, but I kind of enjoy that. (All I have to do is remember the bad old days when I had to haul laundry to a public establishment and feed greedy machines lots of quarters and then sit around for ages and wait for it to finish.)

Hey, Mike, it'll feel good to get home. You will still be struggling with all of the annoying bank card stuff, but at least you'll be at your own house to do it. You'll be able to rattle your sabre at anyone to hear over the phone (whereas you probably couldn't take it with you to do the same thing while you were in D.C.)

Military and government forms here always would have the date then the month also, so it isn't just European. 6 September is how it would appear on forms.

Looks like it's gonna rain again. I was going to mow the next door neighbor's lawn, but I'd trapped my mower behind a wall of unsold garage sale stuff. I cleared a path, pulled a muscle in the process, went to retrieve my son at a friend's house, and now that I have time and the motrin has kicked in, it's trying to rain.

Maybe in the morning.
