Got some work done today.

Finished the side wall on the front of the house; that involved far too much extra crap, like finding an ants nest in the bricks and having to deal with that first.

After that, I did a bunch of cleaning and prepping of the sidewalk for the mudjacking. Shoveling, pulling up the old drain pipes, chopping out roots.

FInished up outside stuff around 7:00 or so. Fed the pets, then set out to figure out how to install the printer on the new machine. Ended up replacing the 8-port switch with the 16-port hub, resetting everything (including the DSL modem), searcing in vain for an install disk. Finally ended up going through a rather convoluted manual installation process, which worked.

Two more pieces of software to install, then I think I'm pretty much complete on the new beast. His name is Ultra.

And I finally got to eat dinner at 9:30. Including a couple of fresh red peppers off of my rear deck pepper plants. Sweet and tangy.

Have you installed Half-Life 2? If so, we should meet up online sometime for some Counterstrike: Source action!

Indeed I have. Of course, actually finding the time to play is a bit problematic, as I seem to keep having these things that need to be done. :)

And as always, I have earned my nickname of "Bait".

(Interestingly, I installed STEAM and logged in with my existinig account on the new machine while the old machine was logged in. Worked fine. Haven't tried playing on both machines simultaneously though.)

Don't. It'll get your Steam account banned. No shit.
