My work on the print server last Saturday, plus a lot of after-hours work during the week to clean up the problems caused rebuilding the same, earned me a day off on Friday. During that virtual Saturday I spent it shopping for miscellaneous items in the shops of Noblesville and Fishers, including a new scratching post for my cat.
Fall is coming, and as the weather is reflecting that, I have put away my floor air conditioner until next summer. That in turn got me cleaning around the house.
But I also got me a DVD of the short films of Pixar, from their days as a part of Lucasfilm to the shorts based on Disney films. Basically the DVD traces the history of Pixar and the technology of computer animation.
It was a good thing that I did mow my lawn this past Thursday. It promised to rain from Friday through this weekend. In fact, it rained a little Friday, with the bulk of the rain not showing up until the remains of hurricane Ike passed through the state today. That’s okay with me because it had been dry and waterless for weeks, and my lawn could use the rain.
I sent Saturday morning and early afternoon at work, getting the public printers up and running again after the library print server was rebuild the evening before. Permissions on certain folders were the main cause of the troubles I had in getting the printers up. But at least the public workstations that have not been printing for the past several weeks are printing now.
