A busy week

I should be at synagogue right now, but having overslept the last two days (and today being less important for me to be at synagogue right now than yesterday) I decided to not panic and skip it. My body must have needed the rest, or I pushed myself too hard the last few days.

I worked 45 hours last week. Not much more than 40, yes, but those extra 5 hours were me not cleaning the house, not doing anything with webpages, and not catching up on all the recorded TV. This week I'll be working 41 hours, but I'd be working 45 again if I hadn't asked a friend to cover Tuesday night for me (it's Karen's birthday, and it'd be good for us to spend some time together.) I gamed 3 times this week, which is much more than I normally would...but I haven't had a Wednesday night to game in a few weeks, and I won't have it this week either. This means no roleplaying, and no seeing the folks I roleplay with. 8^( This is the way it goes, I guess.

Comcast made some changes this week. This causes other problems. Karen's computer is new enough to catch the dynamic signal when it changes...mine isn't. This means that I reboot my computer daily, and sometimes have to reboot the cable modem as well in order to be able to use the net. This is something that I won't tolerate for much longer. Karen and I will have to discuss solutions, whether it be switching to DSL or me getting an upgrade or switching operating systems. I don't want to spend the money, but spending the time booting (lather, rinse, repeat) is making me very irritated.

'nuff said. I'm going to go read up on what everyone else has been up to, and then I'll either get some cleaning done or head to synagogue for the blood drive. Waa-hoo! 8^)

So are you still getting things sent to your @home address? Or should we have changed over to whatever the new one is?

Re: e-mail
New address is not yet active. Keep sending things where you've been sending 'em.

You've needed to upgrade your computer for longer than you'll admit. Dad just gave me money for birthday/wedding. Let's look at getting you a new computer next week. Consider it your birthday present, and believe me, it'll be your only one. ;)

We can still talk about changing high speed service... whatever you want.

I guess you didn't go to the World Wide Wrap? But I see you did go to donate blood later in the afternoon... By the way, did you take your tefillin to The Jewish Bookstore? I guess that's another thing we need to plan on getting you...

Re: Computer
We don't need to get me a new computer. We do need to at least get me a new CPU/memory and install a new version of Windows, in a fresh directory. My current issue of PC World lists some software to port programs from one PC to another. I'll check in with Hytec Exchange (the folks who worked on my machine the last couple times I upgraded it) to see what they recommend.

If I don't have to reboot my computer every time I want to read mail (I've booted 5 or 6 times today) then yeah, we can keep Comcast. Or whatever. Six of one, half a dozen of another, I guess.

I didn't make it to the Wrap. I did make it to the blood drive. Don't forget to talk to Rabbi Goren. I haven't taken my tefillin in yet, but Hillel tells me that there will be another Wrap later...so it would be good to have them by then.

Re: Computer
Gorin, not Goren. And why do I need to talk to him?

Honey, you've upgraded that computer so many times, it's time to get a new one. Eventually you start spending so much money that there's no point anymore. It adds up. And it's starting to add up to the cost of a new computer. They aren't that expensive these days...relatively speaking and assuming you want a desktop. But it's your choice. I'm just letting you know the option is there.

I love you...

Re: Computer
He said you were talking about donating some money in some specific person's name...?

Sure thing. I just wanted to let you know that there was a less-expensive option.

I love you!
