Surf ‘n Turf?


Wings ’n Horns?


Mebbe Feathers & Hooves?

Anyway- we get critters around the bird feeder on a daily basis. They usually work shifts: squirrel brigade early, followed by blue jays & various other small birds, then deer, and later, the turkeys. Doves come in late in the day.

This is the first time I’ve seen the deer & the turks at the same time.

Do they know the snow is on the way & are bulking up while they can, interspecies fraternization notwithstanding?

Another Bad Joke...

Lissa gets off a good (bad) one here.

Here’s another version of the world’s worst math joke…

Three Cherokee squaws have slightly different sleeping arrangements, in that one sleeps on a deer hide, one on a buffalo hide, & one on a hippopotamus hide. The three are about to give birth, coincidentally on the same day.

The blessed events take place throughout the day, and the squaw on the deer hide has one boy, & she is very proud.
The squaw on the buffalo hide also has one boy, & she too is very proud.
The squaw on the hippopotamus hide has two boys, & she & her husband are very happy.

Which just goes to show that the sons of the squaw of the hippopotamus are equal to the sons of the squaws on the other two hides.

I Could be Dead Over Here...

OK, so the beast says it’s low on virtual memory. No problemo, just see the help section for the fix. Easy, eh?

I get this:

You can optimize virtual memory use by dividing the space between multiple drives and removing it from slower or heavily accessed drives. To best optimize your virtual memory space, divide it among as many physical hard drives as possible. When selecting drives, keep the following guidelines in mind:
Try to avoid having a pagefile on the same drive as the system files.
Avoid putting a pagefile on a fault-tolerant drive, such as a mirrored volume or a RAID-5 volume. Pagefiles don't need fault-tolerance, and some fault-tolerant systems suffer from slow data writes because they write data to multiple locations.
Don't place multiple pagefiles on different partitions on the same physical disk drive.

Right. Hope it don’t die, or sumptin.

Halp! Halp! Ted, can you hear me????

I don’t wanna die like this, what with my partitions not fault-tolerant an’ all…

Damn, I'm Proud...

Following Bruce's lead, I had to take this test.

I'm an embarrassment to Barack!

I only scored 12 on the Obama Test

Sorry 'bout that Mr. O...


WTF!??? (version .40)


"pop" is incorrect for the operation.

Cartridge looks a little strange in the pic below, no?

I'm just glad this was on the range, rather than a more "social" application.

I think I need to write a letter to Mr. Manufacturer...

Evil Gun Show

Big ol' evil gun show in Manchester NH this weekend at the Radisson Hotel on Elm St.

State Line Gun Shop has a half dozen tables, & yours truly will be scurrying around behind them. Stop by & say hi if you make the trip.

This will be the last local show before the crowning of the Anointed One, so it might be interesting...
