My 911 file pushes work. The scripts are ugly. Stupid demand dialup to ftp servers setup.

We're closer to getting out of the old place. I changed our address with the bank today.

Deposits large enough to fund a rewiring of the house. Enough to pay off my appliance purchases. They were made today and I am excited.

The house is filled with clothes in various stages of washing. Well, not filled, because this place is SO much bigger. But there's lots. Hopefully we'll get all the old house cleaned out of clothes in the next day or two, and the arrangements made to have the movers come maybe on Thursday or Friday.

We planted two lavender flowers on the side of the house last night.

I met a neighbor or two in the last few days.

Mom sent a housewarming gift. That makes me smile. Thanks mom!

I still hurt everywhere. I hate moving. Thankfully I have planned to never move again.

911? eep!

yea, amusingly, all your E911 records submitted by your phone company get sent over dialup into this ugly HP Tandem mainframe computer over FTP, which parses these ginormous files without line endings (CR and LF are too good for these files) and magically it updates the ALI records at your local 911 centers, which is how they get that lovely data on their screen when you call saying where you're at.

It's fucking amazing that it even works.

I am glad you could do it without me for once ;)

Glad you're getting all that stuff fixed in the begining and not when it becomes an 'issue'!

haha, well it already was an issue. I feared the wiring before I bought it.

I didn't know it was that bad but I expected to rewire the panel and drop anyway

Lavender or lilacs? I love lilacs. Planted one outside my bedroom window.

I inquired with Becky when I wrote this post as to what it was we planted. She said Lavender. She knows better than I.
