I made a little change to the HTML parsing of my script that reposts
these entries to DM and SFF.net. All the entries before today and
since I rearranged them to post in reverse order had a problem where
the last entry’s timestamp would wrap into the second to last
entry. That seems to be fixed.

I’m listening to the NPR Playhouse version of A Canticle for
Liebowitz
. It is a good production, if a tad long and slow. By the
time it is over, it will be a good 6 hours+. The acting is pretty
good, and I’m enjoying it. I had never read the original book. I
discovered a feature on my beloved iRiver SlimX that I had not known I
had. It has a resume feature so that when you restart a CD, be it MP3
or audio, it can start back at the same point it was playing. Well, it
maintains that history even across CDs. I had listened to other things
in between sessions of Liebowitz, and when I put that
CD back in, I started at the same place I had left it. Amazing! Just
to be sure, I took several CDs and shuffled amongst them and they all
resumed at the right place. I love it!

Music TopicAnother major lable hedge on the band of the day. Today’s
musician is one of my favorites, the fabulous Warren Zevon. I have loved his
music for my whole life, and I saw him on the last tour. He’s giving
away the MP3 of his song Basket Case
on his page. He’s funny and one of my favorite wordsmiths.

We went to trivia tonight, at which we mostly sucked. We came home to
find that Georgia’s two biggest embarassments in the House of
Representatives, Bob Barr on the right and Cynthia McKinney on the
left, both look as if they’ll lose in the primaries. And WREK is back
on the air, albeit it at 200 watts while they work on repairing the
transmitter. All in all not a bad night. If only I had known that Hank
Aaron never hit over 50 home runs in a year!
