[ profile] dawnmipb invited me... tell you ten things that make me happy.

1)  Joy.
2)  Puttering about on my PC
3)  The satisfaction of a solution to a hard-thought problem.  Sometimes involving working with my hands, sometimes involving work with the brain.
4)  The taste of barbecue sauce on the hand, in the middle of eating barbecue
5)  The smell of a new hardcover novel, and the promise of a new world the scent implies.  Then again,  new paperback works as well
6)  Sunning on the beach, next to aquamarine water that promises relaxation
7)  Keeping up with friends online
8)  The characters of my favourite books... so many books, so little time. 
9)  Pleasure through touch (and no, I'm not talking about that.  Get yer minds outta there)
10) Bills paid, money left over

I'll throw out the general invite.  If ya wanna do it, do it.  Not forcing you.

Sad news for Star Trek fans. And Berman/Braga still breathe.

Michael served as creative consultant for Star Trek: Voyager, which he co-created, until the series concluded in May 2001. He also co-created Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and served as executive producer on Star Trek: The Next Generation (1989-1994), Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1992-1995) and Star Trek: Voyager (1994-1996). During the 1994-95 television season, Michael also co-created and executive produced the UPN network series Legend.

In 1998, he wrote and co-produced "Star Trek: Insurrection," the ninth installment in the enormously successful Star Trek feature film franchise for Paramount Pictures.

Tried to upgrade some memory, was greeted by the wonderful smell of burning silicon...

Lost: one stick of RAM. 512 MB. NEW. Nice burn mark on it. Will make a good keychain.

Lost: one DIMM slot on my motherboard. It got fried. FRIED. I can see where it melted.

Gotta search for a new board on the Monday. Grrr. Dunno how long this board will last.
Plus replace the RAM stick that got burnt...

Link should be good until the weekend. I get a mention and a quote about halfway down. My friend Anil takes pride of place, though. Rightfully so.

Much love, you guys! You rock.
