Another hour of my life I won't get back. Plugging my iPod into either Mac last night caused a kernel panic when iTunes tried to talk to it. I wound up restoring it with the update program and reloading it. In the process, I noted that all the tracks from TMBG's Flood album were MP2 files instead of MP3, which explains why I could never find them on the iPod (they aren't playable, and iTunes won't copy them.) Their tags didn't indicate what program compressed them, and I can't think of where I would've gotten them besides ripping them from my own CD. *shrug* Fixed now...

My baseball team went 0-for-4 in last weekend's tournament, one of the worst-run tourneys I've ever seen. The first game Saturday started an hour late because there were no bases on the field. The second over an hour and a half late because the league's printed directions to Chino Hills HS sent people the wrong way on CA-60. Game 3 on Saturday morning, the umpires declared the games would last only 7 innings. We find out later that the league had made no such change, the umpires had acted entirely on their own. Game four started 50 minutes late because the other team had to drive 40 miles to get there from their third game, and was called after 8 innings due to darkness. I understand the schedule had to be rewritten from scratch as last week's rain forced the league to find new fields when they arrived on Wednesday. But for $1300, I expect better than this. Communication was horrible. It took until late Saturday night for Nate to get anyone on the bloody phone.

I got back Monday lunchtime and went paintballing with Eric and his friends. The Velocity fields in Ramona are heavily wooded, and I've never before seen them with grass on the ground. The rain has greened over the entire county. I think my next paintball purchase needs to be a conversion to compressed air and a remote kit for that tank. With CO2, my gun jams far too often when my electronic trigger is set for burst fire.

Today, I think I can finally clear off the last items from the To-Do list I've been nursing along for the past two weeks, and maybe get some of the crap in the house up on eBay. Well, maybe tomorrow for eBay... basketball tonight at Westview.

Tomorrow is Inauguration Day. Wear black.
