Let Me Get Your Check. It’s Going To Be A While.

I have no idea what that title meant, but it just popped up. 

I am not deceased. I am very busy. Those two things are quite different. 

Just a couple of things. First, The COVID Quarantine Cantina is doing well, but we’d love to be Number One in our category again. Today we’re at #3. Your buying a copy of the audio book can do that. Just click on it and make us all happy. Buying a Kindle version, or a couple of paper copies, would also be appreciated. It’s a darned fine collection of yarns.


Second, I’m putting my newest computer together over the last 28 hours. The previous resident on my desktop puked up a hairball and died forever. Before you take another step tonight, make sure you are backed up in the cloud. I am. I was able to recover one of the hard drives, but not the second – tantalizingly close, but not quite reachable. I’m sitting here writing and reading while it downloads files from the cloud. Life saver. I would have lost books, audio files, lots of stuff if not for backup. 

The other thing about the computer (the new one) is that someone finally asked users what they like. This is a big, roomy case with extra power. Best of all, and I mean this with great admiration, it comes prewired for lots of extras. Like an amazing bundle of power supply wires already connected to the power supply routed to a spare part of the case for installing extra SATA devices. All I had to cough up was a single data cable. (I have about 10) and connect it to one of four spare ports on the mother board. It is not the usual horrible kind of connection, either, but it is a prefab hanger for 4 plugs that makes it almost impossible to crack the mother board while installing. It’s from Microcenter and it’s their homebrew PowerSpec line. Better price than the competition, much better case. 

Last of all, I’m reading blogs of mine from 2013. Got there by a google search. I’m pleased to say that I’m amazingly consistent in my ability to annoy people and predict the future. 

The next 2 years are going to suck. 

That’s my prediction. But, the new computer is solid, the new books are coming right along, and lots more audio books on the way.

Be well, don’t fret too much. I’ll be back next week.
