The week in review...

This was a stay-at-home weekend. I'm oncall (24x7) this week. I was going to go to happy hour at The Alley on Friday; but just after I got ready to go, three pages came in that kept me busy for hours.

Oh well, I guess it dosen't matter much -- nothing here in Boston can compare to the past few weekends... In any case, I got a new laptop to configure (ThinkPad T40) a serious upgrade from my failing T22. I moved my files over, and rebuilt the T22 for the new employee who is starting on Monday. Each move from system to system is getting easier -- I got my vital applications and data moved over in no time. The new ThinkPad has built-in Wifi (802.11a/b/g) as well as BlueTooth (which I know nothing about yet...) It makes it nicer that I don't need my PCI card anymore! It also has a lot more memory and disk space (which I was needing anyways...)

In other news, my pal Jay in Brockton who hosted gay orgies at his home, made the front pages of the Boston Herald and The Enterprise (local paper in Brockton.) The funny thing is, that although he lived across from a school, the parties had nothing to do with the school, or the locals... The newspaper reporter was just on a gay witch-hunt. Poor Jay, a prominent person in his community has been reduced to gossip-talk and scandal by this reporter, although he did nothing illegal. All the people that participated were consenting adults in the privacy of a residence. I hope Jay sues their asses off!



Oh, yeah -- for my geek friends, the new version of PuTTY (0.55) is now available! PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator. It is written and maintained primarily by Simon Tatham.

well that a "typical" street for people who can afford homes in the million dollar range. Is that union park?

What?!? You don't live in one of these homes? (grin)

This panorama is centered on John Kerry's House.

from the Herald article:
'``You may bring your own liquor, beer, and wine, pot and poppers. No hard drugs,'' the Web site advertises. ``Poppers'' refers to methamphetamine pills, which are often used to boost sex drive.'

Idiots. Check yer darn facts, at least.
