The war between the software developers and the software users wages on. Today I was reminded of the man who went to his doctor and said, "It hurts when I do this." His doctor replied "Then don't do that."

It's one thing to admit that your project is not optimal, but can be used with a minor workaround (a button click); it's another to tell the user that the fault lies with him, not with the product. As Bob Geldoff said on the day Band Aid recorded "Do They Know It's Christmas," check your ego at the door.

Speaking of war, it's back to court next week. I have now been trying to get divorced for a period of time equal to 75% of the time I was actually married. I<3NY!

The new house is so cool - literally. The old cast iron radiators make for a sauna on the second floor, but the first floor maintains a constant nip. Thank goodness for cuddling. And furry pets. (Fish and birds are beautiful pets, but useless in winter.)

So the house, incidentally, is haunted. Things move, voices whisper, boards creak. I take it as a good sign, however, that when we first moved in I discovered a young woman's charm pendant wrapped around the dining room chandelier. The charm reads, "friend". That can't be a bad omen, can it?

fadeout. or click stations.
