To Do Today

Update dead links to those awesome Cowboy Sahib stories.

Clean up that crappy copy of the next chapter of Futura to post tomorrow (get that good copy scanned while I'm at it).

Watch that classic Doctor Who episode where Susan gets abandoned on the ruined Earth, thus laying ground for the next 4 decades of Susan-substitutes.

Contemplate my future without having to resort to booze afterward to cope.

Continue war of wills with that online auction seller who may or may not have shipped that item I bought. I suspect I won auction at price lower than seller wanted so long delay might be in hopes I cancel order. I must be victorious.

Scan those vintage crochet magazines from the late 60s and early 70s.

Give dog bath.

Take car into shop.

Frown at news reports of oil spill in gulf but do nothing.

Read new comic books and file away.

Watch wife sleep.

Point at image of Joran van der Sloot on monitor and yell "Daddy can't help you this time!"

Look for alternative to itunes that won't delete songs I have owned for years from the collection. "This copy of your media file is no longer available," my foot.

Take nap.

  1. All three of these graphics are brilliant, but "sleestak got his mageti" genuinely made me laugh out loud for real.

  2. Have you checked to see that the song files are still on your computer? do you let iTunes organize music files or do you do it yourself?

  5. Have you checked for updated scans of that issue of Planet? I know a lot of the Planets have been upgraded in the last year or so.www

  6. I'd rather scan my own, but I'm also limited by the $$$. I'll look around for something online. If you were giving me an address it got cut off.

    They's why I use ripped CDs rather than trust a distant corporation to manage my files.

  8. Well, yeah. I've ripped from CDs I own since CDs first were put on the market and eventually I notice some songs get deleted secretly.

  9. "Ive noticed Itunes deleting a few."

    Are you sure?

    I've noticed iTunes occasionally forgetting where tracks are, when the files are really still there on the disk.

    It's annoying, but the files aren't destroyed.

  10. Pretty sure. When the window pops up that says the file is no longer available and isn't found anywhere. Maybe a glitch, maybe another reason it is gone, but a file that remains for years suddenly banishes after itunes is updated...
