The good news is that I got my DNS server fixed this morning. The bad news is that the fix doesn’t make sense. I find that unnerving because computers running Linux/Unix/BSD are supposed to make sense. I know that’s a foreign concept for you Windoze and Macintoy users out there, but that’s whatcha get for paying for operating systems instead of using any of the multitude of free ones. Ha! 😀
I honestly don’t know why anyone would pay for an operating system. Two decades ago you had to be technically savvy to run Linux, but these days there are (dumbed down) versions that make all of the fun decisions for you and just give you something that works right out of the metaphorical box, perfectly free for the downloading. So what’s stoppin’ ya? 😀
Moving right along…
It’s a funny thing: While I’m deeply involved in what I’m doing and especially if it’s causing stress, Miss Autumn always comes into the office and vocally demands attention. If I ignore her she walks on my desk, and it’s the only time she ever walks on my desk. When I’m just hanging around doing nothing much, like right now, she’s somewhere else. I wonder why that is. Is she picking up on my stress and trying to make me feel better? Or is she picking up on my stress and being a pain in the ass for her own amusement? Regardless of whatever reality might be I’m going with the former. Too many people who’ve been too close to me have been of the latter disposition.
I’ve just successfully resisted the temptation to go there. Yay!
I had hoped that my period of insomnia was essentially ended, but the DNS server punking out on me undid that silly notion. I was doing relatively okay for a while this morning, but now I’m just plain zorched. That must mean that it’s time to shut up before I embarrass myself, eh? Perhaps I should go be a bother to the cat.
Be well, friends and neighbors!
