||The troubles with toolkits
Posted on June 19th, 2008
|The day began with some errands, namely the errands I thought we were going to do yesterday. The main focus was to pickup more birdseed as the starving Armenians out the window have nearly scarfed down all we had.
After the bird store we visited an eerily quiet Michael's where mom discovered that yarn is now rather expensive. As a result we left without buying anything.
From there we visited Target. Target carries a slightly different menu of Lean Cuisines and SelectOnes than the grocery store, so it's worth a look. They also sell these frozen meals $1.50 to $2.00 cheaper than the grocery store, so we stocked up.
We then came home and had lunch.
After lunch I began looking for a new toolkit for Linux and things went badly. I ended up spending a little over an hour undoing as much of what I did today as I could.
Today's links are all new articles; all of which are unsettling.
A Canadian court overturned a father's grounding, ruling in favor of his 12-year-old kid. She was grounded because she uploaded "inappropriate" images of herself to the internet. Another article on the situation has more to say about the state of affairs.
While grounding the kid is "wrong" now, tying them to a tree in the yard isn't right either.
Lastly that foot that was found the other day has turned out to be an animal's foot shoved in a sneaker. Makes one wonder what the flibbertigibbets is going on doesn't it? I'd wager there's something in the water but we know that much already.
