Weekend update (+Monday)

The transfer of Blackboard is done! It actually took less than 24 hours. Only a few small bumps with the process, but nothing to write home about. I'm actually very glad this is done. This relieves me and my group from a major resource hog. It seems so weird not to worry about that huge application any more.

There was work to be done in the car, but nothing major. I had to replace what's called the E-box fan that cools a box in the engine compartment that holds all of the major computers and other electronics. The old one went bad and the bearings failed creating an annoying cricket sound. Next was a routine oil change and that was done pretty quick with no hassles or surprises.

Mothers Day went pretty well. I took Mom, Dad, brother out to brunch at the Millenium hotel where they have special buffets. It was all very good food and had a great time with just the parents and the brother.

Very stormy weekend. We had multiple severe thunderstorm watches, multiple tornado watches and a few severe thunderstorm warnings. It has not been this active in a very long time. The rain is still quite welcome and it keeps on coming.

Busch Gardens is still set for this Saturday. So far it's just davegrrr, dan4behr, swindunbar and his partner David. If anyone else is interested, let me know ASAP.

Yes, I do. :) Aside from going to bed so damn late, I slept very well except for some power flickers overnight (trips my touch sensitive lamp to come on for some reason).

I'd join you at Busch but it would be a bit of a commute..

Yeah, I figured as much. Too many LJ friends are too far away from me. :(

Does that mean you plan on coming, or this is just a "want" thing? :)

Bummer. I know it would have been a fun time for you and the kids. Oh, well, I'll see on in a little over a week.

My car is a keeper at least for the next 2 years. While there is some maintenance those costs are a fraction of a new car payment.
