Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Technical Difficulties...Again

My mosaic knitting "magic square" is almost (one row away) done so I jumped the gun and took pictures for you-all...

...Only to discover that my camera dock isn't speaking to my newly reinstalled version of Windows. Spent a half-hour just now tilting at that particular windmill and realize I will have to wait for the household IT Dept. to fix the problem.

DAMN but this infuriates me! I can remember when I wasn't a technological caveman: not only was I the only kid in my whole dorm with a Real Computer (Mac 512K; yes it survived the flood) but I had fucking PROGRAMMED my TI-55 calculator to do the quadratic equation for me a couple years prior.

Now I can't restart my own email or make my camera work. This is progress?

In other news, Augusten Burroughs was delightful and moving as always...though I didn't get the cover till the second day.
