Image hosted by Photobucket.comSnowing on the mountain this evening - ugh. Winter can stay away a bit longer as far as I'm concerned. Not looking forward to climbing up and down the mountain every time I go to town.

Cleaned out my '92 Honda Accord today of a few year's worth of accumulated junk. Totalled the ol' girl out day before yesterday, sliding into the backend of a 2005 mini-van - barely scraped the minivan bumper but caved in the entire front end of the Accord. Not a pretty picture. Damn airbag didn't even go off, but I suspect that is because my bumper on the Accord was below the bumper of the minivan. (Probably lucky it didn't go off!) Didn't even touch my bumper - just creamed the hood,fenders and engine. 182,000 miles on it - probably not going to get a whole bundle of fresh greenbacks out of this one. Neck and upper back don't feel so hot - of course they weren't doing so well before I jammed the car up against that nice new van, either. It figures that when your neck is bothering you , you crash into another vehicle.

Watched Duke and IU last night on ESPN - good game, albeit it a bit ragged but that goes with the territory early in the year. Thought for a moment IU was going to beat them, but no such luck. Nonetheless, Killingsworth (Sr. transfer student from Auburn kicked some Duke butt, scoring 34 points and dominating the game). When IU gets DJ White back from his broken thumb in a few weeks, they are going to be very tough.

Firefox 1.5 is now out. I can't tell all that much difference, but figured I might as well install it anyway. Botched up my Roboform extension for a bit, till I went to Roboform site and got the very latest version - pays to follow instructions closely to get Roboform to work correctly. Couldn't live without that program though. Waiting for them to update TinyURL extension, another one I use constantly.

Shame on Microsoft for leaving that important detail out. Haven't given it a run for the money yet, but should be nice with new added "voice commands" and a large section of the screen that tells you when and where to turn in large letters. Makes it more feasible to use the unit by yourself, rather than having to have a co-pilot.
