Title: Good Day in Big D
Post by: Coding Badly on Jan 26, 2011, 10:16 pm
It's a fine day here in the Big D with one exception.  Our dog is going through a "false pregnancy".  Poor thing thinks my wife and I are her puppies.

Beats having her think you're her lunch.

Oh, we went through a bit of that!  Not actually thinking we were lunch but WAY too much biting.  Terriers are well named!

OTOH, sounds like you could get a free lunch! Or at least a beverage, anyway.

:~ oof.

Boston needs a name like Big B - all they have is Beantown.

Getting hit with January snowstorm #5 I think, another 6-12" on the way. If they declare another snow day, the kids will be in school until July! Getting good use out of my snowblower this year!

I wonder how the guy with the snow melting rain guage is making out.

How do we get a bigger font when typing responses? This is like size 4 font or something, just too small.

All better than the nickname I have for Houston!

Arduino project?  Remote control?  Autonomous (with the obvious safety kill switch)?

Hmmm.  Good question.  My father-in-law might appreciate something like that.

No doubt!  On my 1024x768 it is too bad but on this display I need a magnifying glass!  Especially that quote font size.  What is that?  Like 6 pixels high?

I wish! Got to do some muscling around still, very much a manual thing. At least no lifting & twisting like shoveling takes.
