Well it appears our government which is run by idiots (idiots of whichever party you prefer — they’re all idiots to some degree) now want the power to shut down private Internet connections. If you prefer your news from Fox, they’ve got the same report. If the government is concerned about its systems, let them pop off the grid and leave the rest of us to fend for ourselves. I would trust my ISP that sucks (DreamHost) way more than the government to deal with a hacker attack. They’d have it fixed by the time the government realizes there’s a problem and figures out what the nature of it is.

Monday, I have decided to call the cardiologist. Despite what he may or may not say, this constant pressure in the dead center of my chest is bothersome. I don’t want to wait two weeks. Yeah, it’s probably nothing. Probably doesn’t make me happy. And if it makes me dead, I’d be pissed off.

I am updating all my applications (so many) to the latest versions that came out over the past few days in anticipation of upgrading to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) — I am rarely excited about an operating system but this one excites me. I think as soon as Apple sends me my freebie copy, I’ll upgrade. 

Mom’s in town this weekend so I’ll see her and Grandma. Not sure what the other plans might be.
