I do gotta admit that $300 is a bit expensive to connect a Color Computer 2 that cost $5 at Goodwill and a PC system that cost maybe $50. (Probably coulda got both out of the dumpster the next day, but somebody else might have got there first, and that part of Newark NJ ain't the safest place to hang around pre-dawn). (Living in Newark gives you street cred -- unless you have to admit it's one of the other Newarks in Delaware or California). (And I actually reside just across the Passaic River from Newark -- but for too damn long I commute through Newark Penn Station).
Happy Turkey Day, everybody. About time for me to get to the kitchen and start burning the bird. Of _course_ I'm the one who cooks (I still hope to open a restaurant up in New Hampshire, but the present economy doesn't bode well for start-ups) -- La Esposa can set off the smoke alarms making tea, she was taught well by my late father-in-law (most of you never knew a veteran of the OSS that admitted it, but John Rogers was shameless about his ["ex"-NAZI] body count -- hey, those guys didn't want to make their court dates at Nuremburg, face down in a canal was better than they deserved). (My DD-214 doesn't fill both sides of a page, his is a couple of hundred pages and half of it is blacked out -- true, a lot of that covers his 18 months as a guest of the PRC at a resort in Manchuria during and for a while after the unpleasantness in Korea when he was in the USAF [he left the OSS when it had its cerebrectomy and became the CIA])
I ramble. Probably too much beer last night and continuing this morning when I have to pay attention to detail to get the feast ready. Later, all.

I thought about being diplomatic and polite. Honest, I really did. But while I was thinking about it, I accidentally bumped the button that puts my mouth on autopilot, because it said, "That's a load of crap, Captain, and you know it". Jim Butcher, _Small Favor_
