Awake at 1:30. I guess I will go to church this morning.

Spent some time letting my mind wander.

Did a little dreadlock maintenance.

I’ve been keeping up on it the last couple of months so it’s pretty easy. Been rather lazy with the color matching, though. Still kinda wish I’d just started it out grey, but at the time, I was streaming every day, and the clincher was that on camera, the grey/white-ish beard kinda fades right into my skin color and doesn’t provide any contrast.

The grey dreads themselves don’t have that same problem, really,

In retrospect, I could have just kept coloring my beard and left the rest of my hair grey. Once it’s dreaded, it looks pretty dark--on camera, for example.

But… well… today, I just hit it with the dark brown spray. When it comes to the spray colors, I’ve tried them all. Ironically the cheap Dark Brown from Clairol is the one that Harper isn’t allergic to. It usually doesn’t work out that way, but this time it did.

Pros and cons of this are as follows:

Pro: Looks pretty good with very little effort
Con: Only lasts a few days. Also comes off on your fingers and everywhere
else, so kind of a mess.

Still working on the curvy dot com thing, of course. I’ve been trying to reach Jeremy Hambly @thequartering who’s day job is in internet marketing, but he’s proving very difficult to reach.

And so far, the six degrees of separation technique is not working.

today, I thought I’d investigate the voice dot com sale, to see how they facilitated it. The wayback machine might help.

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, dv8 (and Harper!!)!

Today should be 10-12 degrees cooler than yesterday, which will be a goodness.

dv8 -- I could never put that much effort into my hair, no matter how good it might look. Kudos to you for sticking with it.

It’s more of a thing I do when I’m sitting around. Everyone has downtime, watching TV/videos, etc. Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop, and all that : )

Although, I’ll give ya this: Most of the “work” was in thinking, and how my thinking evolved over time, producing better techniques, the evolution of the kinds of tools that I use.

good on you for the M2 thing. My Mobo has that socket, but so far, I haven’t bothered with them, even though they are many times faster.

Hi Mac!

The brands I most used as a chemist were Fisher, Sigma, and Aldrich. The Aldrich catalog always had a print of a painting by a Dutch or Flemish artist with chemistry or alchemy as the subject matter. For a few dollars you could get an 11 x 17 print, suitable for framing. BTW, that’s a dangerous method of storing chemicals. Some of them are incompatible. Fisher even makes it easy for you by putting colored labels on the bottles. Of course out here in CA, we need to put rope or some other sort of restraint parallel to the shelves to prevent the bottles from falling off during an earthquake.
