News of the day
At 7am this morning, I transfered Birki from the emergency-hours clinic to a regular vet clinic. The same one that my mom wurtmann's cat Edward and my sister jatg's cat Beowulf go to.

I went back to visit her this afternoon. She's more awake, and is charming the staff (she comes up to the front of her cage to be petted, instead of cowering and hissing in the back). Her kidney values (Creatinine and Blood Urine Nitrogen) are still way too high, but they are slowly coming down, mainly by flushing. Her kidney is doing almost no concentrating at all. That's the key, if it can be washed out enough that the remaining nephrons start working again, she can pull out of this crisis.

My parents' breadmaker just chimed. The whole house smells of fresh bread.

This evening I setup my laptop to play the second season of Battlestar Galatica, which I had brought with me. wurtmann, jatg, and pheonix_jade immediately got sucked in, and watched 7 episodes, back-to-back.

Daylight this morning, I went out with my dad as we ran some errands, and then helped him a bit in his shop.

My new, third edition copy of Knuth Vol 1 showed up today. It's printing date is Oct 2005, so now I will have the newest edition instead of the oldest edition in my weekly Knuth class.

I'm glad your girl is alright.

Do you play WoW by any chance?

I don't. I already have lots of time-suck addictions, and WoW looks like too much fun.

You should. I would like to play with you sometime.

I'm glad to hear your cat is doing better. It is so hard when someone or something is sick. cuz there isn't a lot you can do about it.

Good luck to Birki.

May I ask where you got the second season BG? I'm still waiting for Netflix to make it available.

Want some DVDs or DVD-ROMs?

I may take you up on that. How did you find the torrents?

I found one through google, but the client is estimating it will take 80 hours of download to get 3.6GiB of TV-ripped season 2 eps. We'll see; assuming perfect connectivity across the net to my 1.5MiB DSL line, it should only take 5 hours and change.
