WALNUT CREEK, California — Ken Larsen was laying cable on top of a five story building when he stepped backwards over the edge of the roof. During the head-first fall Larsen realized the cable he was still clutching was slowing his descent. After crashing through tree branches he landed feet-first on the ground — with only bruises and scrapes.

“They told me to go buy a lottery ticket,” Larsen said. “And I’m going to.”

Brent has a theory that “André” is actually Mr. Data. At least He hasn’t been compared to Weird Al Yankovic as I have (though I’ve been wearing my hair up recently).

Davenet: “So I decided to never write another DaveNet, and guess what’s the first thing I have to do after doing that? I have to write a DaveNet saying this! Oooops.”

I heard this on Voyager tonight: computer “Warning: Warp core breach a lot sooner than you think.”…and then…”Warning: Last chance to be a hero, doctor. Get going.

I finally got the recycling done. And we bought groceries. Big day, huh?

Rhonda wanted to see this picture.

I’m back at home. More to do tonight, but I don’t need to elaborate. There’ll be news coming down the pipe soon enough.

I’m looking for art supplies online. Geez, eBay’s earch engine sucks.

I’m at the all-day Userland “offsite” meeting. We spent the morning going over stuff, and then came up with a few things for me to do over the next couple of days. There’s no shortage of things to do. Looks like I’ll be having lots of fun!
