Today's new round-up

Good News

Semi-random thoughts

  • There's something wrong with the way we do daylight savings time. In the spring, we skip 2am to 3am, but in the fall we repeat 1am to 2am. Shouldn't we be doing the same hour both times?
  • My glob just got its first visitor from Kenya.
  • Sometimes things really do go my way. My bi-annual renewal of my registration as a lawyer is due shortly, and I found myself 2 credits short of the requirement for mandatory continuing legal education. I saw my local bar association is giving a 3 credit class next Tuesday, when I have nothing scheduled. I resigned myself to paying the fee and schlepping down there. Then today I got a notice from the NY State Bar Association that they are giving a 2 credit class next Thursday, when I also have nothing scheduled. It's free, and I can take it via webinar.

Recent news round-up

Another computer crash

Just like last July, my hard drive has crashed, and everything needs to be restored. At least this time I know the proper order to do things in. After about 12 hours yesterday, I got Vista reinstalled and brought up to date--neither of which ran exactly smoothly. Then I started my file restore, via Carbonite, but it is going extremely slowly. It looks like it will take days.
