Things..

Cable modem died yesterday. Payed ~$50 for it over a year ago so I at least got the value of renting one from “the company” at ~$6 a month.

Played with one of these last night. I’m such a geek, I so want one.

Highs and Lows

High:Had the most wonderful, surprise baby shower last Friday. Lots of folks went through a lot of work to pull it off. Shannon and I were totally clueless it was going to happen. What a shock it was to drive up and see all the people there! ITLab, Springfield and church folks all together in one place felt very surreal. I kept thinking, “they aren’t supposed to be here together”.

Low:I’ve been on a kick about “Peak Oil” lately and started to read Jim Kunstler’s “peak oil” related blog. The guy puts into words great thoughts on Walmart, SUV’s and consumerism.
