Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Now, it’s not quite as nice as the one Lyman got for Christmas, but it’s pretty neat, nonetheless. My brother- and sister-in-law sent me a nifty little deal from La Crosse Technology that has all sorts of stuff--it’s like this one, but it also keeps up with the moon phases, and it has a projector light that shines up onto the ceiling with the time and outside temp, and best of all, it has one of them there nucular clocks so I can know precisely how late I am for something.

I got it out and set it up yesterday morning while watching the Tournament of Roses Parade (looking for the elusive Bayer Advanced float) and it really is pretty darned cool--even if all I could think about was how many Quebeçois teenagers would be laughing at the company’s name.

Anyway, it has now taken the spot on the nightstand previously reserved for the pile of cash register receipts and television remote. The projected time/temp deal really is cool, except as I learned this morning, without my glasses on, I can read it no better than anything else. Maybe if there was a way to blow the image up to two or three feet high.

(Oh, by the way, it's still not as accurate as a weather dog.)
