I messed around with a free Palm Stat regression software on Christmas day. I tried to make a memo file that contained my data. The software was buggy but mostly it was slow. I did not get it to work.

I have been using my palm regularly on the bus to and from work.
I got the book Programming in TRUE BASIC, problem solving with structure and style 2 ed. by Stewart Venit and Sandra Schleiffers, (Toronto: ON, Brooks/Cole Publishing Company, 1999). I read the table of contents last night and the preface.
I am about to do my third Internet domain name registration. My first for someone else. This register will be chosen based on the client's wishes. It will cost 25$/year. The domain will be www.eastern-regional-network.org.

I got my first web paycheck this month and am going ahead with that work. I will be registering a domain for this work very shortly.

I am hoping to get some stacking milk crate like file folder holders from staples to clean up my computer room.
I have been using my palm and my Red Hat 6.2 box. I have also been using my eMac a lot. Tomorrow I get help configuring X windows on my duron computer.

I got a Palm V from the major department store. I downloaded and investigated OnBoardC to write C code on the Palm. Instead of that as I know little C I am going to use SmallBasic first and have installed that today and printed the reference manual for it. I will study this manual this coming week.
The Red Hat 6.2 install was so smooth on the Pentium 133. I now have a KDE desktop machine.

I did not get X when I did the TurboLinux reinstall.
I will try to installl Red Hat 6.2 on the old Pentium 133.

I returned the wingman from a friend because I don't have any computers with game ports. Oh well I am just not a gamer. I had helped this fellow install a sound card so he could use the wingman. I got him a sidewinder last x-mas as a gift.
I have been using Open Office 1.1 and Publisher 97 as well as outlook express and netscape.
I am working this week on a newsletter that I edit for my union.

I got the old laser printer back but it is running some error fixing and I haven't got it working.
I have 9 computers but two of them aren't working right now and the Quadra has no OS. So that is three Macs, 5 PC's and one Unix box. I also have a pocket PC, an HP 320LX but that is also not working.
The eMac seems to be hanging on a software update of Quicktime. I can still use this machine but software update has been running now for 24 hours and is stalled. I think I will reboot.
The Quicktime install was just waiting with a registration dialogue box that I could not see. Oh well I rebooted.

Well, I have to do some photocopying so I am getting ready to scan with an Adobe product, convert with photoshop, email to the TP and print on the Epson. This is for personal accounting.
I sold my Mac Centris 650 with Apple Plus Monitor and Global Village 33.6 Speaker phone fax modem and Stylewriter 1200 for 50$. I included Claris Works 4.0. This was sold to a fellow who has never owned a computer before.
I met him on the back ward of a psychiatric hospital in 1990, so I won't mention his name.

I have not been able to find out which drive is which. I know which drive the back drive is but I want to make sure before I sell the other one.
Maybe I'll just sell the the drive in the Win98 box now because I am sure it is not the back drive. The back up drive must be the one with the slave setting on the jumper.

In the Winter of 2002 I learned C again and again did not program with it. But I read an introductory book on C.

My brother told me about the MIT university open courseware site http://ocw.mit.edu/index.html.
I finished printing all the readings for my presentation on the creation and reform of hacker laws for Thursday, October 2nd. The presentation is then a week later on the 9th. I am basically ok now in LAWS4305 just waiting for my first marked asssignment back this Thursday. I have been steadily working on this course.
I got my LAWS3205 textboook yesterday and have read the first article in the book last night. Consumer law is very narrow in its focus. It also does not have a fixed rule based structure yet.
I am reading a history of anarchism, entitled Anarchism by Richard D. Sonn, HX 828 S636. Like any English person, I don't trust the name Richard. That is based on Richard the third and his murderous ways.
I am staying up late with no school or work tomorrow. I am going to buy a music book for a friend's birthday tomorrow. I am also meeting with some worker's defense people later in the evening. I gave a little interview about an old collective tonight to a fellow worker.

Taxes, taxes and more taxes.
I started to write a new short story. My character is, of course, accussed of a hacking crime, but in this case he is either going to be innocent, or his only crime will be stealing copyrighted music. But that is a serious thing, so he will be dealt with seriously.

Next question Hamptom on strikes. The usual most labour disputes not settled with strikes. Eve's short on school money. Hampton claims Eve's is attacking teachers. Hamptom exposes the salaries. Dalton also attacks. End to dropping out. My wife dropped out because the teachers were mean and cruel. Dalton raising school leaving age. Dalton fails to see reasons for leaving school. Dalton get on the phone with the PMO and get the drug laws changed less students will drop out.
Academic subject not according to Dalton. Ok I know the Tories deregulated the price of law school out of my range. Idealist but Dalton drops the part-time label. All their kids go to the U. What about the ordinary people?
Eve's, well their government paid for my education for free. Maybe the NDP or Liberals put that in place maybe the Tories I am not sure.

Imagine we are all wise people sitting on top of mountains
the mountains exist at varying heights and places on the planet
The height is determined by how good we are
The relation of our acts to others is like the relation of the mountains in space
The various laws are the vehicles that travel too and fro between the mountains
Some crime law enforcement vehicles some civil enforcement law vehicles travel around between us as we act and react to each other
These are climbing vehicles that must scale the mountains
But beauty is the kinetic energy that drives these vehicles
the higher they climb the more beautiful
We look around from our heights at other mountains and see others our associates because we are on a similar height
Those higher up can look down with moral indignation on the lessor peaks
Winds are the actions that we commit blowing between us up and down the slopes and through the valleys.

By the end of the day one blind is up in the living room and the other is ready to go up in the computer/office room but I can't get a good position to drill the hole on one end of the window. It will have to wait.
I also bought some powerbar/ surge protectors and a low energy light bulb for the dinning room. I also bought a box of cable tie downs for my computers.
It was tough doing the first blind. It is hard to drill up. Usually a press drill will have gravity on its side. Holding a drill with one hand and arm is tough. My muscles are not particularly developed in my upper body. Anyways, I got the living room blind up. Now I am thinking of taking back one of the bamboo blinds and buying a light proof blind for the bedroom. This way I could sleep better in the day time.
