02:36 pm - Stuff! Things!
Busy busy busy:

Friday, meerkat came up to visit. philled2thebrim had car troubles, so I gave him a jump which seemed to resolve things.

Saturday, johngalt came into town. We spent some time doing nothing in particular. philled2thebrim called again about car troubles, so we got a bit more serious. We took his car to Kragen, got the battery tested, worked out that the battery was bad after all, and swapped it.

One minor problem -- that triggered the alarm. Quick disconnect of the battery and we start the next phase of the wild goose chase.

philled2thebrim had the alarm remote, but the battery had run out. Since those need to be programmed, we couldn't merely replace the battery in the remote. After a bit of googling, we noticed a correlation with a button very near the floor on the driver's side and the alarm. Turn the ignition key on, hold down the button, and voila.

(As it happens, johngalt is really freaked out about batteries. At one point, when he was reconnecting it, I yelled "BZZZZT!" which got a good jump out of him and a couple of epithets 8)

Yesterday, johngalt and I went to Santa Cruz. We had Jack's, hung out with meerkat at the library, looked around campus, and then went off to Karaoke. I was sure the place was going to be closed, but fortunately my past experience proved to not repeat itself.

I'm pretty sleep deprived right now, but still trying to keep the crank turning. Tonight, after all, is game night.

Also: quick poll. Does "thought" rhyme with "not"? What about "naught"?

Thought rhymes with not and also naught. Rhyming is a CA 2nd grade standard. =)

Thought rhymes with naught. Not rhymes with cot or lot. Completely different sounds. But then I do have a southern accent, so you may not want to take my word for it.

I second the comment by sorceresscybele, minus the Southern accent. the "ou" in thought and the "o" in not are two totally different sounds.

"Thought" rhymes with "not" rhymes with "naught"--if you're in CA. If you're in NY, then "thought" rhymes with "naught" but not "not".
