The cranky thread

Recommended Posts

OK, I'm back in.


My presence here is going to spottier than usual for a time.  It seems clear I am dealing with at least one compromised system.  I got one of those d**ned extortion emails which quoted my password on these forums, so I changed my password here; does that trigger an automatic lockout?  


As soon as the quarter is over so I have time, I'll be investigating where the bad box is, though there's a significant chance (to my mind) that our entire university system is all but entirely controlled by hostile individuals.

My friend Jeff's cat Halley died a couple of days ago.  Now, to be fair, she had a hell of a run ... she was over twenty, which is roughly the human equivalence of being over a hundred years old.  She was an old farm cat, friendly and affectionate though.  We'd been watching her health deteriorate for a while, but she was holding up very well all things considered.  I don't think she was on death's door so much as Death was at her door, and she was telling him to f*** off.

She died peacefully and, near as anybody could tell, painlessly.  Jeff's buried her in his yard, planted a shrub there, and put a little cat statue on it.  I'm probably gonna take a few minutes to cry at it next time I visit.

This seems as good a place as any to post this. 


Two weeks ago, I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. 


Carp. I don't even know how to respond to this. I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. Lady P and I wish you the best as you move forward.
