I've been moving files about on Sluggo's hard drive, in preparation for saving them to CD, from which some of them will be transferred to the Slug's brother, once he has arrived. There are goatloads of pictures, and quite a few PDF documents, and some music files, and other such things. I hadn't realized that I'd gathered so much porn stuff over the last few years. Much of it is scattered about in a haphazard way. I'm especially surprised by the number of old postcard scans I've got. It's been quite a while since I've visited e-Bay (from which most of them were collected) since Sluggo doesn't like that site. I want to get this stuff at least somewhat organized before burning it to CDs. It's going to take forever. The good news is that, while I'm busy doing this, I can't be surfing around picking up even more stuff to be promptly lost amid the mass. Oh, I'm such a digital slob!

I'm not getting any LJ notifications, and I don't know yet if it's because LJ isn't sending them, or because my ISP is rejecting them. I'm going to call them this afternoon if I have the time (this is errand day) and see if they're blocking the domain. If they aren't, I'll file an LJ support request, fully armed with "yes, it's you!"

The sky is turning pale already, and it's barely six o'clock. The onrush of spring!

14 LJ comment notifications at once. Whatever was causing the constipation has been fixed. I'm pretty sure it was at LJ's end, though, because I was getting other mail the whole time, and there has been no sudden outpouring from anywhere else.

The balmy weather continues. Spring has well and truly arrived. The oaks are putting out leaves, and the lower half of the apple orchard is a cloud of pink blossoms. The white blossoms of the northern half will undoubtedly appear shortly. The aged cat who lives across the street is now spending her afternoons napping outdoors, after having spent the winter in the house. Today, a salesman of double-pane windows came to my door wearing shorts. I went to Safeway, and their air conditioning was on. When I emerged from the store, I realized how warm the day was. Ah, spring. It's a good thing that my time of dependence on Sluggo is coming to an end. He'd never survive April.
