The holiday weekend is almost over.
I’ve decided to put the new (old) computer, if I get it, in the extra room and set it up to run the games I’ve got that only run under a DOS OS. And it will be nice to have a place to get away from the cats. Don’t get me wrong, I love my cats, but some “me” time is nice.
I mentioned the Indy movie a couple of days ago, how we liked it. I’m not usually very squeamish, but I hate ants. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that fact a time or two before, I hate them due to that old movie “Them”, the black and white film about huge mutant ants in the Los Angeles area. This was done during the nuclear scares back in the fifties and sixties. I was just a little kid and my mom was gracious enough to put me to bed, then wake me up later so I could see this movie, because I’d been begging her all day to let me see it.
I’ve hated ants ever since.
So, when the part of the Indy movie with those huge red ants came on, with those huge nasty red ants came pouring out of the anthills and climbing all over people, I squeezed my eyes shut as tight as I could and pushed my face into Brian’s shoulder and was squeezing his poor leg. I don’t doubt he got a little bruised. Red, people eating ants. Nasty, nasty, nasty.
I ordered a serial to USB adapter over on eBay earlier this weekend. Since I had to pay sales tax, I’m hoping it’s not that far away and I hope to have it early this next week. And my fingers are crossed that the remote will once again work properly.
I’m also after my DH to climb up on a ladder and change out the roof cam. I changed the one over the office feeder this weekend and the picture is mui better. The camera on the roof is a 3Homeconnect camera and now Watchport has those cameras. The one that’s running in the garage, as the “dinnercam” is a Watchport camera, the resolution is much better than the one on the roof. Originally, I got the new Watchports as replacements for the roof, never thinking to use one of them in the house. I just wanted to have a spare for the roof. But now, I’m glad I got two.
So, the backyard cam will hopefully, by the end of the week, have a much clearer picture and the ability to be repositioned by folks on the internet. Unless I’m by the pool, then I’ll set it and turn off the remote.
I finally took off the bandage I’ve been wearing on my thumb for the past couple of months. It’s not hurting nearly as much and I’ve got much more use of it, but it’s still swollen. You know, you’d think for as badly injured as it obviously was, I’d have realized it when I did it.
Well, off to see what kind of wireless adapters are available for a win98SE machine. You know, just in case I get one.
