Just finished a complicated hardware/software setup involving 10 machines all tied to an 11th. Murphy showed up - someone mistakenly reported a problem with a switch which 5 of the machines are on, our lab IT guy was diligently working on what I'm pretty sure was a false alarm.

My Tivo to PC transfer is not working. I'm getting the video but no audio in the file. It was working fine a month ago. Updating Tivo Desktop didn't fix it.

Hey susandennis, Tivo's web site says they are looking for beta testers.

Washed the quilt last night, it looks so amazingly more colorful and brighter without an inch of cat hair.

Had a surprise windfall of sorts arrive in the mail. It seems Smith Barney never got the word that I had asked to stop my employee stock purchase plan participation. They buy stock every quarter and on March 31 my monthly contributions were converted to 180+ shares of MOT at about $1.50 a share less than today's rate. I'll hold onto it, capital gains tax goes down after 18 months, or thereabouts.

Got a call from an old girlfriend last night, she's moved to Montana and is living with her son, who tried to be an actor in LA but was just too tall (6'7"). He's getting parts in Montana, where people tend to be larger. It's also where he went to college. Which puzzled me at the time, because he could have gone to UWashington, where there are enough big people that he would be able to get parts. I guess he likes snow. Anyhow, nice to hear from her. She sounds like she's happy up there.
