Wednesday and Thursday night, I slept very poorly, with some huge asymmetric knots in my back. Thus those next mornings, I got to work at about half past ten, burning away at my small accumulation of self-tracked TOIL.

Thursday morning, the unit next to my old apt building was being demolished. And Friday morning, when I drove by, my old building had been reduced to scrap, and was being hauled away. I stopped and took some pictures.
Hauling away the scrap

Yet another weird networking problem got handed to me at work. One of the MSOs started to panic because their weird-ass in-house SNMP-based cablemodem management tool was not reporting a couple of things when it "looks" at our installed boxes. I seemed to be the only person who even knew what I meant when I asked "Did anyone just run a snmpget against those boxes, and see if that works?" So I got tasked to do it, and lo, the boxes are working. Next question. "What query is your tool actually running?" "Ummm, we'll get back to you on that." Hopefully, they will be able to tell me exactly what question they are actually asking, Monday.

Then it was one of my favorite semi-recurring times of the week, Fish Friday. omahas found a yummy and easy recipe in a Cooking Light collection. We covered some halibut with fresh dill, chopped red and orange bell peppers, chopped tomatoes, and cooking wine, and baked it under foil. It was bright and colorful, and came out moist and yummy.

elfs and I set to making some DVDs of my collection of Drawn Together and Fosters Home. Unfortunately, it came out horribly horribly jumpy. Elf said he would try a different transcoder, hopefully that will work better.
