There and Back Again

Got up, cleaned up, and headed off to Mountain View for court.  It turned out to be a bit of a slam-dunk.  First of all, it was an arraignment day, and the judge (Well, technically, commissioner) wanted to keep things as simple as possible.  So instead of explaining why I needed more time, I got to say "yes" when he automatically offered me 6 more months...

This guy was about as lenient as they come.  My favorite bit, which is of interest to some I know, is that he'd simply suspend lack of insurance coverage charges if the person had immediately gone out and gotten insurance.  In fact, the only thing he seemed to be strict about was diamond lane violations - go figure.

Since I was on the peninsula, I headed home for a change of clothes, and to check the mail for info from S.J. Pride.  Which still hasn't come.  I'm going to have to contact them tomorrow if nothing shows up.

I promised Frida I'd be back again - and had left my laptop as hostage - so I got to head back up to Alameda in rush-hour traffic for the second time in two days.

Dinner was with Kimio and his girlfriend Wendy.  They're both always a lot of fun.  In the meantime...

timenchanter will be disappointed to hear he's been divorced as second husband.  Frida is a jealous Frida, and she decided that dates with hot bois were apparently not sufficient grounds for missing an evening.

So I've been offered, nay ordered to take up the position, as it were.  I've managed to put them off for a week.  It seems to me that one should at the very least wait until the previous office holder has heard about the change before dumping it on someone else.

Meanwhile, I've been reading up on the new firewall they bought me as a birthday present.  It slices!  It dices!  It does VPN!  It handles dynamic DNS (Though not, apparently, to my service, dammit)!  It does static DHCP assignments!

So I've been somewhat in nerdvana for the past few hours...
