I am the bearer of the “Grim Beeper” this week, and of course there are all these events and the thing goes off like crazy. The error messages that come to my pager are wonderfully cryptic, such as:
“15342.cust.sjc1.foobaz.com move failed report or system fudge attack roentgen gearhead honkenstein”
And then I call someone on the phone or poke at my computer. It is all similar to Charlie Chaplin’s classic Modern Times but without so much machinery.
The odd combination of daylight saving end plus a gray day makes me feel as though I’m in Northern England instead of Southern California. I had tea today.
Question of the day: Why do health food freaks eat “sea salt” instead of regular salt. Isn’t it all just NaCl?
