The break in the storm was brief. Dusk bought the return of clouds, and the rain soon followed. It has grown very cold once again, but I no longer have to keep the room frigid, as I am no longer utterly dependant on Sluggo. Still, I got very little done on the computer(s) tonight. TMC was showing Bogart movies until three o'clock. Teh Interwebs can't compete with film noir.

After the movies, I had a craving for scrambled eggs. I rarely eat them. At one time, when I used to wander the night streets of Los Angeles, often after seeing a movie, it was my habit on returning to my neighborhood to stop at a 24 hour greasy spoon diner called the Seven Stars Cafe and have scrambled eggs and hash browns before going home to sleep. Maybe it was movie-induced nostalgia which brought on my craving tonight. The odd thing is that I've never much liked scrambled eggs, or any sort of eggs, really, but at three o'clock in the morning at a greasy spoon diner they become... interesting. Unfortunately, I've never been able to cook them as well as they did at the Seven Stars Cafe. Tonight, I made some anyway, and was reminded of why I so seldom do. They were pretty bad. A bit of salsa picante fixed them up, though. It is my belief that salsa picante has done more to curb food wastage than have all the nagging mothers laying guilt trips about children starving in whatever place children are currently starving. Salsa picante is a great invention.

Snooping in the Mozilla FAQs, I think that I may have stumbled on a way to get Thunderbird to fetch mail from all three of my chiconet e-mail identities. It wouldn't be a perfect solution, as I would have to close the program each time I wanted to switch from one identity to another. However, I usually kept only one identity (the one that fetches LJ notifications) logged in and checking mail when I was using Outlook Express, so it wouldn't be that different from the way it was with Sluggo. I also think that the new computer is stable enough that I could keep an instance of Opera open under Firefox, and have it check for mail in my other frequently used identity. That's what it's been doing for the last year or so when I've been using it as my default browser. Sluggo would most likely have blown up had I had two different browsers open at a time.

Oh, day is fading in. No time to try setting up the accounts in Thunderbird. Time to be sung to sleep by the rain.
