|I didn't get much sleep yesterday, though not for lack of trying. Hence I'm wearing out much earlier than usual.
One of the things we picked up at the store was a package of frozen beef burgers. I had one earlier; Mom's burgers are better. Heck, McDonald's burgers are better. I guess that explains the very low calorie and sodium amounts in them.
I spent my time awake backing stuff up and cleaning the filesystem a bit. I also uploaded some things the PC Project needs. On a hunch, I messed around with some files from an old backup I uploaded to this computer a few months back. Thus I think I've found a fix for a problem I was having with Project Rainbow. I've described that project as a piecemeal combination of various projects that didn't work out on their own. Amusingly, the fix for the problem I ran into is an old, dead project from no less than 5 to 8 years ago. This dead project began in late 1999 or early 2000 and was left for dead in 2003 or so when it showed no sign of ever working. Who would have known it might actually work out after all.
Today's links are rather odd. Of course, I doubt that I'd be linking to normal stuff.
First off is a news article about a kid that was arrested for opening his Christmas present early. Note the ages: Great-Grandma is 63, mom is 27 and the kid is 12. Methinks there are more problems in this family than just a misbehaving kid.
Speaking of McDonald's, here's a clip from Japan featuring Ronald himself.
Also from Japan, here's a game show about eating marshmallows.
Lastly, here's a clip showing the American Civil War in four minutes.
