Better get started...

I am as decompressed as I can get, and a lot poorer. I will slow down on the casino time, and start on the projects. Actually, I got the two major things done already. I showed Mom how to print off an entire email in Gmail, and I feel badly that all I had to do was check help and it is a button right where it should be. She could have been printing a long time ago. Bad technical support daughter. I also replaced my watch. Couldn't find any kind of digital watch in the mall in Teguc, and not a lot here even. I did find one, though, on sale for $10. I'm on the lookout for stashes of small digital (cheap) watches since they seem to becoming extinct.

I stopped by the storage unit yesterday afternoon, but it was too hot to do much. I've let this morning get away from me as well. I am meeting my Uncle at one of the casinos for lunch in a few hours, then I may go for a walk and then go to the storage unit (hopefully as it is getting cooler) and start putting the shelving units together. I got a couple of items out of the unit yesterday, but it was raining hard when I got back home so they are still out in the Jeep. One of them is my older laptop that stays here, and I want to do a health check on it and may take it back and put Ubuntu on it to play with.

I really need to get rid of most of this stuff, as I'm tired of dealing with all of it. However, when I go into the storage unit I don't see 'anything' that I 'want' to get rid of. sigh.


  1. It is like finding new treasures all over again. That is why I have so much junk.

  2. This is Off Topic and if you would rather respond, if you wish, to my email that is fine.

    What are your job chances with this development in Honduras?
    From AP Story:
    The government of Honduras has signed a deal with private investors for the construction of three privately run cities with their own legal and tax systems.

    The memorandum of agreement signed Tuesday is part of a controversial experiment meant to bring badly needed economic growth to this small Central American country.

  3. I bought a new cheap digital alarm clock yesterday ($5.99) and it gains 10 minutes over 6 hours. Hope you have better luck with the watches.

    At least I can set the time and the wakeup the night before. I'll just have to compensate for the time gain. A watch doing that would be a real pain.

  4. DD: I'm tired of all this treasure hunting. I did find some things I wondered what happened to them.

    Ed: I haven't heard about that, but I do computer support for the military (US), and the money is the only reason I'm down there. I'm not looking to settle in for the long term. I may look for that development, though. Do you still have a link?

    tffnguy: So far the watch is great. How can even a cheap digital clock not keep good time? It's kind of built into them via the digital logic!

  5. Shadowmoss, You would think that would be the case, but not so in this one. I reset the clock a couple of days ago and the real time now is 3:31 PM, but the digital clock says its 4:22. It was set by the clock that now says 3:31. That clock is set by satellite and is supposed to be the same as the nuclear clock time. Go figure....

  6. This is off topic, but I don't know your e-mail address. We have a 2001 26.5' rear bath Lazy Daze. I can give you more details if you like. Sorry to write a personal note... e-mail me for more info.
