Snow day #3 (2004-5).

Nasty snowsqualls but in a very limited area. Ice said it took him 45 minutes to get from the shop to home (normally 20-25 minutes) and that, at times, he couldn't see anything.

I couldn't sleep because I was worried about him and then, after he made it home, I couldn't sleep because I was worried about the kids. When they still hadn't closed the school by 6:45am, I got up, came down here, and reloaded the school board's site constantly, until they finally closed the school at 7:20am. That's much later than normal.

Ice worked his last night shift Thursday night/this morning. He leaves for the new jobsite on Monday morning at 3am. Well, from the shop at 3am; from here, much earlier. He's only going for 3 or 4 days this week. We're not sure yet what's happening after that.

I've been very busy, creating ebooks for Project Gutenberg, via Distributed Proofreaders. I'm really pleased with how the HTML version of the December 1877 edition of a children's magazine turned out ( >2MB, 65 images, only available here until it's posted on PG). Some fun stories in it, although some of them are serialized and, therefore, incomplete in this issue.

I've also been folding proteins (well, sorta) and burning CDs and have come to the conclusion, after bringing my machine nearly to its knees more than once this week, that Ash really really needs more RAM.
