    The 'fried biscuit of Camelot' post...

    I am awake again. Either I an deathly hypomanic, or I have just gotten used to being up this late.

    Not much to do on the agenda today except for grocery shopping with mom, and starting to study my huge Linux+ manual. Linux+ is a certification for use in the Information technlogy field.

    I need to hold two Linux certifications to be marketable to employers. The certification I really want is the LPIC certification. It's recognized globally.

    And coupled with my (hopefully I can get in, providing I pass a background check, which will be difficult) Health Information Technology degree, I will be well placed to get off this Social Security treadmill that I am on.

    Alas, my parents say that I will be ready in 5 years.

    I will be dead from boredom by then.

    Tommy Tom says heyroo as he looks out the window.

    TTYL! Have a great day everyone!

    -Jason and Tommy Tom

    I am sorry you are awake again at this time Jason, though I admit it is nice in some way to know that I am not the only one awake at all hours day and night. If we did not all live at the extreme and different edges of the US then you, Jim, and I could have coffee together while waiting for the rest of the world to wake up. I would vote for Jims kitchen table as I appreciate his music selection and my family, nor likely yours would appreciate the extra company in the middle of the night.

    Wife is having a yard sale today - actually , it has been designated for the whole town as we live too far in the sticks to get anybody to drive out to see just us but the idea is if there are lots of houses participating people may take a drive down out lonely road to check it out. She was asking me what to price things at - my standard reply for everything was "25 cents" - she took the hint and topped asking for my input. I just want to clear clutter and nothing she puts outside is going to make it back in the house anyway - leftovers are going to charity or dump.

    Hope all have a great Saturday and enjoy the "long weekend"

    Good morning to all Cafe posters, hope you're doing well. Today I'll be going to a fair, that should be fun. At least it gives me something to do for a while, and forces me to be around more people. Take care all and have a great day.

    Hey Jim. What did we do before internet... the mind boggles... It's only about 5am where you are (Seattle), hey. I'm still in my bed and it's midday(Dublin). Starting to ache from lying down though, so I better get up. Lazybones.

    Good morning!

    I've been burrowed into my blankets for the last few days and have finally come up for air.

    Jim, "a prayer to 'Big Daddy'" - that woke me up :laugh:! I hope your power has been restored.

    Yay, for rescue kitties! :cat: Now Star and Tommy Tom have another online friend. :wink:

    Sorry you had a wild night and are hungover, Butterfly. Drink lots of little sips of water.

    Sounds like people have things to do, projects on the go. The yard sale actually sounds like fun! It can be interesting to poke about in others' stuff. I hope things go well for all. My own plans are to get to the pharmacy, do groceries, and maybe go up to the airport to watch various planes for the annual air show taking off. I think it might be fun to go up in one those super buff jets, except for the fact that I don't like heights and I get motion sickness just thinking of it! :plane:

    Oh, and I have to go to the library. One book overdue. No matter how hard I try, I seem to miss at least one due date every so often. :dunno: Grrr.

    Hoping and wishing that everyone has a really great day!

    came home from work today. turn on computer. internet down. PANIC. call tech support IMMEDIATELY. go through the usual unplug and plug in then unplug and plug in different order. works now. not sure what happened there. I did my own plugging and unplugging prior to the call to no avail. maybe my old router is about to kick the bucket. or rather it will be my foot doing the kicking, of the router, into a bucket, of garbage.

    Oh dear Lexi. I know we talked earlier. :hug: to you!

    I understand this... I wiped out the password on the old router that we had once. I was uber paranoid, because tech support kept asking me about things on the account to verify that I was aythorized to activate the DSL service again. They wanted all sort of stuff. Finally a tech took pity on me, and gave me the DSL password, so I could put it in the modem. I would have been in a pickle if my did would have not been able to get on the internet.

    Paranoia does strange things to me.
