Pondering the Imponderable

Whew, what a week. It began on Saturday as a convention in Minnesota that I was attending kicked off. It was supposed to run through Friday. On Wednesday I had to return home because of an emergency, leaving my family in Minnesota. I returned to MN yesterday. I'm planning on coming home for good on Monday. Around and around I go.

I've been very thankful for EZ-Net's webmail service so I could keep up with my email (and keep my spam under control) while I was gone. I've gone from my cable modem to dialup to a campus-wide T-something to my cable and now back to dialup. This much is for sure: I'm officially addicted to broadband. Dialup is nice when there are no other alternatives, but that's about it.

The NHL draft is today which means precious little to me since I have no clue about most of these prospects. I'm just happy that the NHL is back. Of course, the way things are looking, my Wings could be in a world of hurt this year. They seem to be having problems signing their own free agents. Of course, with so many free agents out there, that might not be a problem after all. Now I just have to see if my father-in-law can get tickets for the Wild when the Red Wings are in town.

I have been watching the Discovery space flight very closely since launch. This was the first shuttle launch I have actually actively followed in quite a few years. Even though things were looking a little rocky there with the foam shedding, thankfully everything seems to be checking out. I really don't want to see another streaking line of debris from a failed re-entry ever again.

I have also been proving my uber-geekiness to Eeyore during this mission. That's right, I've been running NASA TV feeds on my PC, and HERS during this mission. Heh. It's probably a good thing we don't have NASA TV on cable :-)
