Ach, overslept this morning... I’m going to have to do that file-tranny tonight. 1.31 gigs transfer over the instant messenger. (the six episodes of neverwhere... the first one timed out at 30 meg to go. D'oh!) Isketch is a hoot, but some of the topics are *hard*. I'm glad that you're allowed to skip the impossible ones. Even the comic-book ones had some that I'd never heard of... sixth-string run-twice books from the mid-70s. It's much simpler to draw "Hulk Smash" or "The Human Torch." I'd like to get a big goon squad to play online pictionary sometime. (Though I'm terrible at mouse-art... a wacom pad would make things a lot simpler.)

The morning constitutional and shower brought me some good energy, and I'm feeling pretty good.

Today is Danny's last Day of his summer courses, so we'll be able to get together Tomorrow and hang out a bit. It' since to be able to goof off with him so much now, because when the regular school season starts up, he'll be much more restricted in his visits.

Noticed a scammy-looking letter in my Box this morning, and I did a follow-up on it. It's upsetting because I think that this would fool a lot of people that don't know better. My rule of thumb is never follow links from inside an email regarding information updates, but instead to go to the main company site, and see if there are any banners or update questions there.

The Email I received (and have forwarded to Ebay for whatever legal action they would like to take part in) was -
