And the winner is …

So The Grammy Award show is on tonight and Hailey is sleeping with her
mom on the couch, so I have a little time to see my office
again. First a side note about the show, why do the presenters seem
like this is the first time they have ever read their lines? Do people
not rehearse anymore?

Finally the office is clean and things are falling back into
order. The only outstanding pile of junk are all the pictures that I
have stacked against the wall in the corner. I have three or four
rolls of film that have been developed, but I haven’t had a chance to
get them posted yet.

I re-installed Linux this weekend. Red Hat is going to a policy of
requiring a survey every two months to continue to use their Red Hat
Network service. RHN is needed to keep packages up-to-date. I could
pay them a monthly charge and open a real account, I could take the
survey every two months, or I could try a different distribution. I
took, door number three. Debian Sid (the unstable, leading edge
branch) is now installed on my computer.

I have been looking for a blogging tool but haven’t found one that I
really like yet. Most people use Movable Type but I don’t really want
to use it. I may just re-write my template files. Those worked well
for most things. The picture gallery still requires much manual work.

Hailey had her second eye-exam on Friday. Premature babies can have a
problem with blood vessels not forming properly in their eyes. This
problem is most evident in babies that are very early twenty-something
weeks and babies that are on high concentrations of oxygen. Hailey had
none of those factors but was premature so they had to check her
progress twice. Both exams went without incident and Hailey will not
need to return until age two.

Hailey may have a problem with colic. She seems pretty miserable
during most nights now. That means less sleep for all those
involved. Hopefully, we will move past this stage very soon.
