Caught up on the Blink backlog today, in between unsuccessful tries to install an update to my Norton Antivirus software; the install program kept hanging. Resorted to querying tech support, though finding the link to submit a query took a goodly amount of time itself; they don't make it easy. But they did response -- at length. It shouldn't be this hard.
Still reading Kim Stanley Robinson's Fifty Degrees Below
, whose content is difficult to keep separate from recent headlines. More comment when I finish.
Heading for a neighbor's pre-Halloween party later this evening. It was 2 years ago when I watched the fires 50 miles eastward (in Gary Westfahl's neighborhood) flickering in the distance, from their balcony. Now it's dark, chill, and calm.
