The lights flickered a bit last night, so I thought I'd go downstairs to shut down the computer. I discovered that it had already shut down and was restarting. The biggest impact of this was that the program I had running in an ssh window stopped running. It had been running all day, collecting user names. And it's not set up to write stuff out until the end. Yes, I lost all of it. Why did I not set it up to run in the background? Because I'm stupid, that's why. So I got it running again last night before I went to bed, and it's still plugging away.

hrafn's mom called last night, so we didn't end up watching 12 Monkeys. I think I'll watch it after work today and before going to have dinner with my mom and sister. Not sure how I'll feel about driving out to my sister's (near Cleveland Circle), but we'll see. So, instead of watching the movie, I played around online and then took a bath and read in bed until turning the light off a few minutes after 9. I got a phone call around 9:30 and then was back asleep. I woke up about every hour, starting around 3:30. So, I don't think I'm as well rested as I could be, but I feel pretty okay now.

Dug the car out this morning. They had actually plowed on our streets. Actually, I just scraped it off, then used the car to dig itself out. It took me maybe half a dozen times, but I finally managed to get over the plwed-up bits. The main roads were fine, very well plowed. The parking lot at Wellington was almost empty, and I got there at normal time, too. I think most people are taking at least today and tomorrow off. So, it should be nice and quiet around here. Maybe the co-worker will be out, but I doubt I'll be that lucky. Here's hoping she at least doesn't bug me for the rest of the year.

I'm definitely ready for this poject to be over. I don't mind the work, and i actually even like the proofreading. It's just that things are so far behind, and they don't show any signs of cathcing up. At least they've said the deadline isn't moving any more, so, in less than two months, I won't have to worry about it any more.
