I mentioned that the problems with my computers are the RAM. I had 600MB of RAM and my computer is so old that 2GB is the maximum. 6GB are available and 4 GB is pretty much standard. It turns out that to install the adobe master collection I have to install 2GB of RAM. So, the sound you hear is money flying out of my wallet. But the good news is that the software I bought is actually software and not a bucket of bolts.

As a substitute for entertaining writing I will place a random Nat King Cole video here. It's not Autumn, but the song really isn't about a season, is it?


I'm going to figure out how to integrate the blogs I follow into my blog. I think it has something to do with RSS. Real simple stuff. But not so simple. It's a live feed. Does anyone know how this is done? I'm thinking I will have to go into the template of my own blog and set aside some kind of inset that will be the location of the content from a different site. I should practice with the onion before taking the pregnant robot content and putting it here. It's an experiment to try to do the thing Pepsico is doing with chips and soda. The ingredients in the soda are somehow the antidote to the ingredients in the chips. They call it corporate synergy. And I call it a challenge to do the same thing with guerrilla media such as my blog and the blogs I follow. Am I dreaming to call it that? Ah, fuck you. Don't answer that.
If I delete my whole blog accidentally that will be too bad. The one writing gig I applied for (with that snarky cover letter) actually wrote back and said "I like your style." They want me to cover local politics so I may actually get a chance to be a Portsmouth P.J. O'Rourke. Now that would be hysterical.
