Am done with wheat letters at long last. Am going to be out of contact until Monday nite.
I spent most of yesterday knowing that Friday was 2 days away, but thinking that it was today. Even this morning I did so. But after I got to < 24 hrs to go, it got easier to think that it's still a day away.

Am mostly done with wheat letters. Think I'll have them done before noon Fri. Will definitely be done by 1800 Fri.

Can now say that I can burn 44 CDs in 3 hrs. Can't do a whole lot of research while I'm doing it, but it can be done.

Starting with this entry, am doing the entire blog in CSS. We'll see what it can do.

Just realized that CSS doesn't have much to offer this blog like I thought . Most of the indenting is done for the tables.

In other news, am done with most of the form wheat letters. Have yet to get to the personalized ones, though. But I do have more paper, 'cuz there's lots of people on this one(w00tness!)

Am cracking up reading about GPF's Geek Wars. Is a parody of several movies. Predominant element is Star Wars, but they've also got elements from Star Trek, computers(Line in/out, usb, serial), the golden arches, NASA, the American flag, etc. Starts on Feb 22, and continues through where I've read. Am on March 2 now. Cracks me up.
Just got done writing 17 out of 20 candidate letters. 18 & 19 are going to take some customization. 20 is going to take a LOT of customization; he's my brother. I'll be able to include some of the same info, but I'm going to be doing a lot differently. Oh well. It's 2 am and I'm tired. I'll do it tomorrow.

Am still looking for a website host. Requirements are same, but found a new site: DMoz. Open source-type directory project. Have found a couple of candidates that prove better than the old site I was using.

Just got done with my recruiting trip at home. Got 2 out of approximately 15 youth. Not too bad, but could be better. Oh well. Brings total up to 20 now. Decently sized TEC. Wish we could do more.
Just finished writing 12 out of 13 wheat letters. 13 is going to take some customization. Am tired. Have Mass in 6 hours, during which time need to get to sleep(not too much time), and get up, shower & get dressed, eat(not in that order). Am off to do so.

Have begun to doze off. Because of this, have stopped writing letters after writing 7 in one sitting. Will resume tomorrow night, but not for as long, as I have Mass on Sun morn. Sun nite I'll have an updated list.

Stargate spoilers; hilite to read. Star by Star & Vector Prime spoilers also included. They put O'Neil on hold. I wonder who they'll get to replace him. Whoever they get, I don't think that (s)he'll be as strong. I think that they did that for the same reason that they killed off Janet: to get more viewers. Same thing for killing Anakin & Chewie. That's good for the networks, but leaves us viewers in the ditch.

Have also simultaneously begun work on wheat letters. Hope to get lots done.
Just got out of PC Troubleshooting class. We're taking the PC apart & putting it back together. Am having fun with that class.
Have finished writing THE wheat letter. Now to write the wheat letters plural. After that comes the Wheat Crew wheat letters. Then the Resource wheat letters. Will I ever get finished? Will I ever start on time?

2 raves & an entry

Started reading the chapter on CSS today! It's gonna be so easy to do so now. Am still on straight HTML, though. Don't know enough about CSS yet.

In other news, I got a free lunch today by taking my grandmother to her(and my) doctor that we both had appts for today. Pretty good sized meal, too. Am pleased with self.

Had a healing Mass tonight. Standard Mass, except for the blessing after the homily. But we were there for extra time, so Nichole let us out early. And UNO's closed for spring break, so the lab there is closed. Guess this means I get more time to write those wheat letters. Get more done.
Am having a hard time coming up with a website host. Must offer at least 50 MB of disk space, unlimited bandwidth, no forced ads, SSI, PHP, Java, and FTP access, and be free. Seems like those requirements are mutually exclusive. Am willing to compromise first on Java & PHP, but not on disk space & cost. After that comes SSI & FTP. Last comes ads. Oh well, will continue search.
