I'm currently in the process of installing Jaguar. The install says 24 minutes to go. Tending to it off and on, I should have my users set back up by the end of the day.

[Edit (9:15): Disk 1 complete, Disk 2 in progress, Dev Tools yet to come.]

[Edit (9:30): Disk 1 complete, Disk 2 complete Dev Tools in progress.]

[Edit (10:00): Disk 1 complete, Disk 2 complete, Dev Tools complete. User accounts set up. I'll do a restore of user data when I get home tonight.]

Welcome to LJ

Welcome my buddy mlsmithjr to LJ. I've worked with Mark for over six years now, at 5 different companies (although only 3 jobs). A fellow conservative, he's always got something interesting to say.


My wife gave me a Beanie Baby bat as a present yesterday. She saw him in a store window and just knew that I had to have it. His name is "Radar" and Ty points out that he is the first Beanie Baby whose name is a palindrome. I brought him in to work today and he now lives on top of my monitor. Bats are really cool. They're cute, too.

I've been a fan of bats for a long time. It really goes back to the fact that Batman is my favorite comic book character. But it goes beyond that, too. Bats are just plain cool. So now Radar sits on top of my monitor, observing everything.

Elephants are really cool, too. Maybe I'll have a discourse on them sometime in the future. I can talk about the (somewhat) recent discovery of a whole new species of elephant, the forest elephant, for example.

Shameless self-promotion

Welcome to my world of shameless self-promotion. I work for AT&T Wireless, and like many companies, my company is offering bonus-type things to employees for referrals. So, if you're considering getting (or changing) wireless phone service, please consider AT&T Wireless and using me as a referral.

And because it's not all about me, AT&T Wireless will also reward each referral who becomes a new customer with a $25 service credit in addition to the current promotions available to new customers. In order to take advantage of this, you must purchase from and enter my wireless number at checkout for the referral to be recognized. So, if you decide to do this, drop me a note and I'll give you my wireless number.

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming, already in progress.
