MacGuyver Girl

I realised from the entry below I'd forgotten to recount the thrilling story of fixing the phone line :) The line out to the sleepout got chewed by the puppies (the previous lot of puppies) last year. No one could be bothered getting someone in to fix it, and Leon just used the phone in the house, so it wasn't a problem.

However, I have an internet addiction to feed and no phone line in my room just wasn't sustainable! So I spent an hour or so yesterday finding the cable, locating the break, chopping out the chewed section (I was very lucky there was a small amount of slack in the cable, or it would have been impossible!) and stripping the wires to join them. I had to wrap all four joins in tape individulally so they wouldn't short out again, and then wrap the whole repair in layer after layer of duct tape, because being an outside line, it can't get wet.

I couldn't believe that my repair actually worked, it seemed a very bodgy job! The phone line is a little echoey, but it works and I can get a connection to the net, that's the main thing :)

I'm afraid to be a genuine MacGuyver Girl you would have had to have used some 'aloominum toobin' somewhere or other. Perhaps next time...

BTW you killing me with those recipes in Grey Day...The souffle sounds like the shit dog.

Will Silicon Valley Become A Ghost Town?

Back in the 80s, businessmen hoped that computers would usher in a
paperless office. Now in the 00s, businessmen are hoping that paper will
usher in a computerless office. "We've lost more productivity this last
decade to shoddy software," explained Mr. Lou Dight, the author of the
bestselling book, "The Dotless Revolution". "By getting rid of computers
and their infernal crashes, bluescreens, and worst of all, Solitaire, the
US gross domestic product will soar by 20% over the next decade. It's time
to banish Microsoft crapware from our corporate offices."

Lou Dight is the champion of a new trend in corporate America towards the
return of pen-and-paper, solar calculators, old IBM typewriters, and even
slide rules. If "dotcom" was the buzzword of the 90s, "dotless" is the
buzzword of the 21st Century.
