    Not really

    I'll find out in a few months what I can get. Everything gets handed down to his sister but her feet probably won't ever get big enough to fit into these.

    I can probably sell them to a family from our hockey organization. There's about 100 kids in each age bracket

    Garage door taken off (not the jamb though). Not sure it makes a difference. We've punted for the moment, we'll wait till after my brother leaves to take another crack at it (before busting out the saw).

    As for sleeper sofa, well, the idea is to have a sofa and have a bed. There aren't many options. And I have never been comfortable on an inflatable mattress. And did sleep on a sofa bed for 2 years once. Not all sofa beds are created alike, some are designed to be a bed in a pinch and some are more designed to be "daily sleepers", so we'd probably go for one of those. Some of them even have inflatable tops.

    True murphy beds are crazy expensive. But any type of furniture that provides us a couch and a bed is acceptable, it doesn't have to be a classic sleeper sofa. It does, however, have to fit in the space.
    I assume you've tried vertical, if it's not too long. You can often turn it around the "corner". We had a tight fit with a refrigerator. Thought we would have to take the door off but the guy on the truck just opened the door and was able to wiggle it through. But don't do what I did--I need to take off one jamb but I stupidly picked the one with the alarm sensor in it and broke the wire. I thought I could splice the wire but then someone came along, saw a wire sticking out and cut it flush.

    This is annoying. The parking area was full.

    The sign says park perpendicular if you can't read it. This is a different car than one I posted a picture of the other day. Fortunately there was enough dust on the back window for me to leave a choice message.

    They should call her Janice Bond, and have machine guns pop out of her nipples.

    I was hoping that a post Daniel Craig reboot might get done in period... back to the novels.

    Instead it appears that 007 will be on her period.

    I've warched almost all bond films and welcome any change to the series that injects a bit of creativity & fun. If it sucks don't do it again. If not, win.

    Fair enough. However, couldn't they simply have made her another 00 agent? Why's it gotta be specifically 007?

    I suppose the Bond character's parted ways from the Fleming version for quite some time so what the heck. Why not? Personally I miss the wholly UN-PC versions of Bond that Sean Connery and Roger Moore portrayed. Sometimes a KGB female spy just gotta be pimp slapped (then banged), know what I'm sayin'? Daniel Craig's been an awesome Bond in many ways, but he's too respectful toward teh wahmenz to be a proper Fleming Bond IMO.

    A female 007 could be cool. Brings a whole new dynamic to the Moneypenny relationship. My support for a female Bond hinges on NOT turning the MP character into a dude.

    Craig's Casino Royal was the most Fleming like Bond since OHMSS.... IMO

    Got a Euro trip coming up this summer, so have been looking at various travel forums. Someone posted this on an Iceland forum:
    Straight roads, no cars, beautiful clear skies - we are going 130 kmp on a 90.

    Never was I told or even warned about the tickets in iceland. Anyway - 740USD if i paid on the spot - said no - mail it. that is RIDICULOUSLY high. (as if this would have ever stopped us anyway).

    They took our info from our passports - said they can mail it. Now, what happens if I don't pay it/
    My favorite part is the presumption that it wasn't really their fault because no one told them speeding tickets were so expensive in Iceland. People never cease to amaze...

    What did he expect for someone to announce it during in-flight safety briefing?

    I'm just hoping they ignore the ticket and then attempt to enter a Schengen country in a year or two and have the agent tell them they are welcome to enter just as soon as their now $2,000 Iceland speeding ticket is paid in full

    Finally committed to buying a new (used) MTB. Working out perfectly, semi local seller who was driving through town TOMORROW and was going to drop off. Settling on details for the last week.....

    Just got a message today after 2 days of radio silence. Never mind. Decided to keep the bike.

    Now trying to realign plans that were hinging around having a sick new bike.

    Damnit.
    focus.

    May I speak to so and so?
    He's not available right now. Give me your name and number and I'll leave him a message.
    He already has my name and number, twice. He's not calling me back.
    If you give me your name and number I'll leave a message.
    What good will that do. I've already left him 2 messages. He's not calling back. May I speak to his supervisor?
    He's not available. If you give me your name and number I'll give him a message.
    He already has my name and number. He's not calling me back either.
    How can I help you if you won't leave your name and number?
    By getting one of them on the phone now.
    They're not available. If you leave . . .[hang up]


    Also, boat speakers annoy me. Some particularly loud ones parked in front of our house this evening. A little Jimmy Rogers yodeling on the outdoor speakers at full volume chased them.I pissed off the guy living next door--not sure who it is, maybe related to the woman who rents the place, maybe a squatter. I only played it for 2 minutes, so fuck him.

    PS I like Jimmy Rogers, although I don't listen to him very often.

    Cool tech job posted implementing new virtual machine features, working with intel.

    Go through the usual hoops of phone interviews, online tests, more phone interviews, vetting by HR departments, finally the all day in person bombardment of tricky programming questions, whiteboarding code, reviews of chip architectures, CPUs, MMUs, IOMMUs, APIC, LAPIC, IOAPIC, MSI, IPI, DMA, paged pool, nonpaged pool, page tables, TLBs, locking and unlocking pages, kernel mode, user mode, IRQs, PCI enumeration, BARs, DeviceIDs, VendorIDs, cache coherency, cache flush, cache invalidation, device reads, device writes, Virtualization, VMCBs, VirtIO, MSRPM, IOPM .

    Then waiting a week.

    Tick tick tick.

    Get acceptance modulo the position being funded..

    In all my professional life, I have never heard of this. Normally, a position is funded, then they do the interviews, narrow candidates, and select. But here's an instance where the interviews have occurred and now the funding is in question?

    Huh?

    Annoying.
