Today in history

Comments I’ve posted

    I’m a signatory to L. Neil’s Covenant of Unanimous Consent. He witnessed me signing it at Bubonicon here in Albuquerque back in 2003. I never saw any necessity for it to be rewritten.

    How I got dragged into this, I have no idea.

    Basically, what Andrew is looking to prevent is this group getting bogged down over issues more relevant to California, New York, etc. That’s a reason that I try to restrict the NM-related groups that I run to New Mexico residents as much as I can.

Notes from Life, Etc.

  1. There is almost NO WAY that I’m going to spend 200-300 on a knife. Unless it’s the Sword of Ares or something. I buy knives as tools – like a claw hammer or a screwdriver. When was the last time you saw one of those priced for over ∅100?
  2. Got paid today – I was supposed to have gotten paid yesterday. More to the point, this is the second payday in a row where this has happened. Really aggravating. I hope that this is NOT going to be an ongoing thing with this company. If it is, they very well might be looking for twenty new people in the Albuquerque area. (They don’t seem to be pulling this routine with the employees posted to the Santa Fe area for some reason.) Next, we’ll see if they can release next week’s schedule on time . . . .
