Yakari yawning

watching Azumangan on a cold, soggy Sunday night

well, we finally got the rain, but wow, cold, windy and yuckie. So, I put on Azumanga Daohi. Wow,  a so so day turned into a great day.
Tried to help a vision impaired friend renewal his license. but, we ran into computer snafus: they decided to install security functions but forgot to mention it to the  people. oh well.
To celebrate Monday, I got  War of the Worlds, the TV series. A very interesting series.
Pretty good way to start the last week of April.
My search for a  new computer motherboard has led me to ASUS and their AMD system. I checked with a good friend  of  mine who builds servers and he thought the board was okay dokay.  We'll see.
so, here's hoping you all have a great last week of April and beginning of May.
