Got a new phone today. The Samsung Propel, first new phone in 3 years. I'm excited. I got the blue model.

So what's the plan? Are the CDs going into cold storage? Are you going to have all the ripped files streamable from your computer to other parts of the house? Are you going to give your DVDs the same treatment?

The actual CDs are shoe-boxed. At first I felt like maybe I would put them all in CD trapper keepers, but there are just too many of them and I think the best plan is to not ever see them again.

The ripped FLAC files are 150 GB. Next, I'll use those perfect copies to generate a library of mp3s, for portable needs. I'm gonna write a script to do that. All are on a Red Hat Fedora system, will be backed up, and are served to the rest of the house via Samba.

I was an early adopter of DVDs, but it has taken far too little time for them to wind up on the obsolete path. A disappointment. Also, as a music lover, the DVDs are not as important to me as the CDs. And I haven't sunk much effort into understanding all the video formats. And I haven't set up a computer for the main living room TV. So the DVDs will remain on the shelf for now.

I have a new sewing project.

I have to make twenty pack covers over the next couple weeks. I'm going to purchase the materials now.

Pack covers? Explain please.

This is something that has been making me happy since Thursday but I just haven't uploaded my pics til today.

My new friend bought me two chilli growpots, as she knows I love spicy food.
They're only about as high as my hand - you pot them up separately as they grow obviously. And the pots have clingfilm on as per the instructions, until the seedlings appear.

I'll keep you updated!

Ha! I learned a new way to ping a computer, and it is about half a second faster than the way I did it before.

I'm not a real computer technician, I just play one at work.

Really, how's that? I like to use a ball-ping hammer.

Got an offer of a gig from someone I was gonna approach about a gig. Offered gig would be replacing said person rather than working under said person. It would be a big change/ major comittment/ great opportunity... thinking on it.
