Random thoughts and smiles

I had a Happy-Giddy happening yesterday, when I got e-mail from one of the more influential people in my life -- the boss who hired me away from my non-skilled-labor job working midnights, and brought me over to work on computers and be paid for it. He taught me many things, and I've not seen him since he retired & moved. Last year sometime I realized that the e-mail I had for him was no longer valid. Yesterday he mailed me and that made me smile.

Today, reading an announcement (of an update that is required due to a critical vulnerability to the Adobe Flash player) I did a double-take and had to laugh at the phrase ...A malicious SWF must be loaded...

Yesterday I told the spouse about having spent what to me is a large sum of money on an on-line order. The response, which I took both ways, was "ACK".

Yesterday I got to watch the car reach 1,000 miles on the odometer. It's nowhere near as fun to watch when it has a digital odometer.
