What I Did While My Computer Was On Vacation
Greetings fellow Dojo Rats, I'm Baaacckk!...(I think).
Old computer: Dead
New computer: Still growing up and learning. Be patient, this scene is not quite together yet.
--But just as the Kanji for "Crisis" is the same Kanji for "Opportunity", we must look for the bright side of every disaster and grow from it.
Here's a few things I did while my computer was on vacation:
1. Played my guitar, ukes, banjo, and even dusted off the mandolin. I had more time to practice and learn new songs. My wife loved it for the first twenty minutes, then probably wished I had a computer.
2. I became a "Soils Engineer". I have 750 feet of open trench for my water, power and phone lines to our building site. We dug it two weeks ago with a trencher. Then we had to clean the trench by hand, as the rains caved it in everywhere. Then we had a snowstorm, and the ground remained frozen for another week. Last weekend I finally got the rest of the lines in the ground and as of today I am awaiting for the inspector to show up. Umm, mud...
3. Did a little more reading on a couple of martial arts-related books that I intend to review on Dojo Rat.
4. Got to the work jobsites on time. It drove my employees crazy.
So, despite being away from the Net for a while, it was somewhat refreshing and gave me somthing to look foward to when I got the new computer hooked up. Nothing is quite set up correctly yet, but I'm back with new posts later this week!
