Kibbles and Bits

Some stuff today...

There was the previously mentioned nibble from Craigslist. I responded in about 12 minutes - and she's never gotten back to me. Numerous possibilities, there.

The only one I have trouble dealing with is that my friend Melanie decided this would be the morning to send me 13MB of video files. To an account with a 16MB quota.

An account that isn't exactly empty...

I have her pointed at a different address now, so hopefully that won't happen again. It's just frustrating to think that there's a possibility (low, but real) of having lost a client because of someone's addiction to sending funny videos by email.

C'est la vie and all that.

I finally got around to taking the car in for some pre-smog check sprucing up. And, well, an oil change that's 2,500 miles overdue. Four hundred dollars later, the "check engine" light no longer comes on.

For some reason he wants me to drive it a bit, and also let it sit for a while, before doing the smog check proper. Either it's a burn-in issue, or a desire to propitiate the spirits.

I'll be bringing it back in on Friday.

I also threw together yet another Craigslist ad, bringing the total to 6. One more, and that task will be officially ticked off the list. Leaving only further attention to the AdWords campaign, a MySpace site, and a FaceBook account...

Along about 7:30pm, trivialt called to say he was out of class early, and would I, and potentially timenchanter, like to join him at the Cheesecake Factory?

I just can't say no to something like that. So Timmie and I headed out, and enjoyed ourselves much with the Stan. I came home afterwards, but Timmie went off to join Stan in a night of gaming.

I can't say I've done a huge amount since then. I've looked at the song interface code again, in an attempt to refamiliarize myself with it. I've done at least some of that.

Basically, I need a better search interface - one that includes song numbers - before I can afford to pull the now missing MM98-05 tracks from the database. And I don't want to print new books until I remove those.

And the books are getting pretty damn ratty.

But there's a hole in the bucket...

Well, m'dear Liza, if you go to FastMail, and pay them a one-time fee of $14.95, you'll have an account with a 16MB max and 80MB monthly transfer quota.

I set it up as the account my phone accesses, and I'm rather fond of the fact that, at least until they collapse, I'll never have to pay anything for a standard IMAP4 account.

Granted, Gmail is completely free, but at least when I set up that account, it was a web-only interface.

Well, again, that address is the one that goes to my phone. I don't want huge attachments on that one.

It's worked fine, except in her case - she's far too enamored of directly emailing funny videos. So I'll just work at shifting her over to one of the accounts with huge storage capabilities.

It's not like I don't have 4 email accounts, and about twice as many addresses...
