Some Just Don't
Deserve a Title
Just a quick update today. Iím still
operating on hobby overload with too many irons in the fire, so to speak.
Moving ahead with my quest for a HAM
radio license and thanks to Kathy at
have been taking sample tests on the internet. Itís the entry level
Technicians exam so I'm not talking about a high level of technical
information. Itís comparable to taking a written drivers test; I just donít
have the time to do it. Odd that Iím going through this so I can talk over
the radio to complete strangers. I wasnít exactly endowed with the gift of
gab. Iím mostly just interested in the technology.
Still having trouble updating my
websites due to problems with the server. They want to erase all my files
and have me re-publish everything. With a dial up connection, that can be
quite a chore so I may be putting it off till I get back from vacation. I
can still post individual pages though when I do that, many of the
navigation links stop working. Itís my fault for using MS FrontPage as an
editor. Dream Weaver is the editor of choice by most website builders but
Iím not ready to start over learning a new program.
Iíll be spending today doing lofty
noble stuff. Sending out the newsletter for the
MDL and Iím
starting to get some stuff for the Town Hall September newsletter. Need to
catch up on my editing chores with the
ODP and, Iíd like
to work in a nap sometime. (So much for noble) Dang, should probably get
started. Oh yeah, need to get out the back-pack and start preparing for a
trip on the 20th up Paradise Valley in Sequoia/Kings Canyon.
Temperatures over 100 today so I expect
Iíll be staying inside trying to stay cool.
