If you're a fan of "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me" (and if you're half the NPR junkie that I've become, you would enjoy this show), you might have heard Luke Burbank filling in for Peter Sagal. Luke was a producer and random guy behind the scenes at my local radio station, so it warms the heart to hear him milking the obvious jokes for a live audience.

Random other stuff:

  • Linux - I finally upgraded my mail server / web server / file server. I need to clean that machine up - it took 7 hours to install the base software from CD to the hard drive, and then several additional hours to bring it up to date with the versions of various software.

Oh, and a woman I danced with complimented me on my "relaxed" dancing style. That may mean I'm not a stickler about actually paying attention to the "beat", but she seemed insistent on paying me the compliment. So that's nice.

  • Living is Easy (With Eyes Closed)

    This is really primarily for Cassie, but I rarely post here, so it's also an exercise in "how does LJ work again? Or how does it work today?".…

  • No mudslides for me, thank you.

    Hey, is this thing on? I was just sending email to a mailing list (nothing exciting, don't feel insulted if you're not on it) that was thinking…

  • Trivial

    So, this past weekend, a bunch of my friends / acquaintences / teammates got together and competed in a local trivia competition. There are a few…
