Whatever happened to the Laserjet Journal?

There was a time when there was one and I was an expert!

It’s been a long time trying to remember his name… Now a shout out to Scott Wald!  I remember when he was a young guy working for HP and starting up ASAP Software Express.

Apparently, you can still download the software.

The whole gamut

It turns out gamut is a medieval musical term.  Language! What can you say?

Mysteries of the Toilets

Where does the water go? Where is the new water coming from?

Fritz Leiber’s  Spacetime for Springers introduced  me to the inner world of cats.  If you’ve never read the story, follow the link.

My little springer has now focused on the mystery of the flowing waters of the toilet.

More Kitten Cuteness

The kittens, Tony The Tabby Tiger (Tony, for short) and Gray Bear (Bear, for short) are romping and running.

Kittens! Cute Kittens Alert!

This is the cat currently named Care Bear.  Friday, she was living in the kitten room at Treehouse. Today, she owns our house, though she prefers to hang in the family room.

Her co-adoptee, currently named Grendel, is too shy to be photographed. He’s either under the bed or in a back corner of the bedroom closet.  Occasionally a nose pops into view.  Update:  See below. Grendel has appeared.]

Grace and Frankie

Jane Fonda.  Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston,  Martin Sheen. How can it go wrong?

I’ve started watching season two and it’s growing on me.

Amaroking away the afternoon

Here’s what I’m listening to over the next hour.

Selection_001Using the Amarok player, I’ve set up a dynamic  list that finds songs with (Rating > 3 stars and  ( (PlayCount = 0) OR (LastPlayDate MORE THAN 90 days) ).This gives me a nice, fresh mix of the 11,800+ tracks in my library.  I had been an Amarok user since my early Linux days, but then they messed up the playlist functions and I switched to RhythmBox.  Recently, RhytmBox became totally unreliable on my Fedora 23 system, so I switched back to Amarok. It’s a happy experience.

What are you listening to now?
