My hubby called me at work today to tell me what he wanted for his bday (next march) and christmas. Apparently, The Wall has been made into a broadway play and Waters is orchestrating it. He says the only place it's playing is in NY. Can anyone confirm this?

30s clubs around Waldorf

My bro and his wife live out there in MD now and were asking me about clubs. The ones I know of, I doubt they would like - Buzz, 5, etc. Plus, I haven't lived there in a few years.

So, does anyone else know of any places for the "older" folks around the Waldorf area?

Ozone or Businesses?
by erato at 16 July, 2003 - 6:51 AM
So I live in a fairly large city (13th in the nation, I believe) but we don't have emissions testing. For some reason, I thought all large cities would have this to protect our ozone. After all, if we can't breathe, none of us can live, right?

Well, I guess Indianapolis doesn't think so. They apparently think it's more important to bring new industrial business to the area. At least, that's the way it has been.

Deframentation of the Work PC
by erato at 14 March, 2003 - 9:57 AM
I'm so bored at work today. How bored you ask? I'm bored enough to defragment. Yep, I'm going to spend the rest of my day watching red marks turn blue.

I want you people to see this though. http://www21.brinkster.com/erato/defragment.doc (Sorry I can't link to it, Brinkster won't let me) I think this is a disgrace to IT people everywhere. Not only is the HD a mess, but it also is a host to a web server with a dynamic ip address assigned through DHCP. Its supposed to allow outside access through the department. BUT, since the address changes continually when I reboot. What's the POINT?

Anyhow, this has been my aggrivation for a few months now. I'm cleaning up the mess of an untalented and quite cocky co-worker of mine. We'll call him George. George, also has no idea how to name his objects. He calls everything myRecord, myTable, mySQL, Text1, Text2, Command1.
UGGHH, I'm done now.
