Fresh when it gets here from Julie Barrett

So, was this a holiday weekend? Could have fooled me.

I suppose the fact that the menfolk spent the day at home should have been a dead giveaway, but I've spent most of the weekend toiling over a hot computer. In a hot house. Rain and cooler temps are on the way, though. We expect the remnants of the hurricane to slide into the area tomorrow.

At least I got laundry out of the way and won't have to dry items outdoors tomorrow. Oh, yes: the dryer broke today. I suspect the belt, but no one felt like digging into it, so I spread the last load out - parts of it on shower rods inside and parts outdoors. It was either that or spend an hour at the coin-op laundry. I think the temperatures were marginally better here. Besides, I had work to do.

Got the work nearly finished, but gave up earlier tonight when the remote SQL server burned down, fell over, and sank into the swamp. At least that's what I presume happened. Given all the other web server issues this weekend, I would be unsurprised.

So, what's happening in the rest of the world? Plenty, but I'm too tired to comment in a coherent manner. I suppose that means I should go to bed.
