I am writing this from the top of the play structure behind my house.
King of the castle. And I'm listening to "U2 - Beautiful Day" because it
absolutely is. The signal strength is surprisingly good here.
Today, I bought a CD with all the good pieces from Wagner's The
Ring. Good listening. Also got a haircut and a few cans of Guinness.
The weather is supposed to be worse tomorrow, so I'm making the most of it!
Last night I made some updates to the style sheet on this log site,
as well as adding a history bar.

The new toy is a 3.5" 160GB PATA Maxtor hard drive, inside of a new
brushed aluminum USB2 enclosure. The photo does not say much. The
enclosure is hardly larger than the drive itself. This USB2 stuff is
decently fast too... rsync-ing my MP3 collection was relatively fast:
wrote 3720589301 bytes read 13860 bytes 12464332.20 bytes/sec
total size is 3720080570 speedup is 1.00
In other news, first day of work was nice, though I am currently
overwhelmed by the summer-long project. Also, ordering power supplies
from Nortel is surprisingly difficult.
