1. It’s still foggy.
  2. My Windows box is crashing again.
  3. Twhirl is staying faded, as if in the background, but I can still type.
  4. Only one Microsoft update this month! Of course it’s critical, remote code exec, in all current versions of Windows, AND requires a restart…

  • Fall in SoCal = checking the weather report daily to decide between shorts or a heavy jacket. #
  • I keep seeing pill spam with sensational election-related subjects. Oddly they can spell Obama correctly, but consistently write “McCane” #
  • It’s time to upgrade your wireless network security to WPA2. #

I’d always assumed these boxes were just the usual electrical, cable, phone or other utility access points. But I walked past this one a few weeks ago and saw it open. It turned out to be a station for gathering weather data.

I’ve been zombie-fied.

Comic-Con was fun, but exhausting. Add that to staying up too late last night and not being used to the heat…

You see, downtown San Diego was fairly nice all week. According to weather.com it only hit 83, which was uncomfortable when carrying a heavy backpack (or in Katie’s case, wearing a heavy pirate costume) in the sun, but quite comfortable in the shade or with a breeze. We got our first taste of what things have been like back home when we stopped for a bathroom break near the Irvine Spectrum area around sunset last night. It felt warmer at sunset in Irvine than it did in mid-afternoon in San Diego.

I don’t think the bedroom ever really cooled off last night, even with a fan running in the window all night.

Then after a night of “sleep” I got into work and I started hearing about temperatures hitting 108. It’s just… astonishing.

Anyway, I’m currently on twice my normal daily dose of coffee and I’m still spacing out and mistyping stuff.
