Saturday fun, fun, fun

Managed to sleep late and still get up about an hour before everyone else. Which wasn’t too bad.

Got GNUS set up nearly perfectly, so I’m back to a TUI mail client. On the flip side, GNUS also allows me to read my long-time neglected UseNet groups again easilly. Which is nice.

Was going to go to my Nephew’s birthday party, *BUT* as I’m getting out fo the shower, Ray complains that he has “kid-itus” Kid-itus? He yanks down his drawers, and he’s covered in spots. Closer inspection shows them to be deer-tick bites. And so it falls to daddy to remove every last tick. THREE HOURS LATER, I’ve got them all. and he’s gonna itch like a mother when the spray-on Benadryl wears off.

The rest of the day was seant reading and hacking on GNUS. And now this update. From inside emacs, which is really cool….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    stating the obvious, but watch those tick bites for any sign of lyme disease/rocky mntn spotted fever. that stuff is no one’s friend.

    Yeah, that’s stating the obvious just a little *grin*

    I’m afraid I’m going to ahve to spray the nasty insecticides this year to kill off the *HUGE* crop of ticks we’re likely to get next year at this rate. Well, that and the mosuito eggs that are surely waiting after the large quantities of rain we’ve had. And since We’ve ahd three confirmed cases of West Nile in NC, that’s not a bad idea either….
