Spent some Quality Time this afternoon fighting with Microsoft Word, which apparently is structurally incapable of rotating a text box
as of the 2003 edition. No word on whether they've solved that problem in Office 2007... ergh. I ended up finding a high-res image of the text I was after, but that was just duMb with a capital M (see?). I just checked, and OpenOffice.org not only can manage this marvelous feat, it can do free rotation around multiple points in the text box! Madness, I tell you.
Also, my dogs are INSANE. Bark, bark, bark... what's that? Nothing! I'll BARK at it! Neither of us surface dwellers got a whole lot of sleep last night, although I can't vouch for zylch
. The neighbor has a cat, but seriously... I don't want to use the bark collar
on the Yellow Menace, because she's an outside-all-the-time dog now, but I had thought she was starting to get acclimated. Going out to poke her/distrupt her laser focus just seems to encourage her to make more noise so you'll come outside again. :/ At least our yard is big enough that the neighbors haven't complained.
On the other hand, it gave me a few hours of dark and relatively quiet (in the office anyway) night to catch up on a few things... more on that tomorrow. Now, dinner and a
book about Nazis with mostly real hair, mostly winning World War II.
::edit:: Oh, right, the other Thing of the Absurd: We've finally gotten back onto the 'main thread' of the Amnesia Campaign
and I are running, which allowed us to look ahead more than a half-session. If they survive what's coming, they should... oh, double
their XP before they're done. And if they don't, well... }:-)
