Why, yes. Yes I do.

Since I started back working for my old client back in August, I’ve been trying to get full access to everything, especially the Linux-based Webserver that hosts our two websites. Well, today the last wall crumbled.

I finally got full ‘root’ access to the webserver, i.e. ‘God’ level. This means I can now install the new SSL certificate. . . just as soon as I can figure out where the previous guy hid it. But it’s only a matter of time.

And more importantly for the long haul, I will now be able to expedite moving the websites off the in-house server and up to Godaddy.

Colorado State University just recently accidently sent out 11,000 acceptance emails to prospective students. Including some who had already been turn down, some that had not been officially accepted yet, and some who had not even applied.

And now it looks like the The Grand 1894 Opera House down in Galveston is trying do their part. This morning I got TWO copies of this email, reminding us that we had tickets to see The Smothers Brothers on 11/11/07.


We’re delighted that you have tickets to Smothers Brothers on 11/11/07, 12:00 AM at The Grand 1894 Opera House.
We look forward to seeing you at the show!  If you have shared your tickets with friends or family – please forward this reminder to them
If you are unable to attend this performance, we hope you will consider returning your tickets to The Grand which provides you a tax credit for your donation.

Thank you for being a Grand patron!

This was a last little getaway weekend we had, staying at a bed and breakfast down there. But really this was a little getaway right before our big getaway. Two months later, on January 6th, we picked up our American Eagle from the dealer in New Braunfels, and one month later we were on our way to Alaska.

After I got home from work Jan and I headed back out to have dinner at Pho 20. But before we got out of the park we at text message from our friend’s Rudy and Caroline Legett. They were in the area and wanted to get together for dinner. So we told them to meet us at Pho 20.

Although we’ve talked on the phone a number of times, the last time we got together was a couple of years ago when we were both at the COE park in Fort Davis, AR and had dinner together.

Rudy and his wife shared a plate of Chicken Fried Rice and a couple of Spring Rolls, while Jan, still working her way down the Chicken menu, had the Tempura Chicken, and of course, a House Crunch Salad.

I went back with an old favorite, the Chicken Breast Pho with Mixed Veggies, a little of everything.

Everything was delicious as usual.

It was great seeing Rudy and Caroline again, and we hope to do it again soon up in Pasadena.

The Headline of the Day:  Is Your Roomba Spying On You?

Thought for the Day: 

A Hallmark greeting card that plays a little jingle when you open it has more computing horsepower than the entire USAF in 1960.
