Preparations

I’m mostly ready for my parents to arrive. There’s still some to be done tomorrow. Right now Amtrak says their train is running 16 minutes late, which will probably become 4 hours by tomorrow afternoon. So I’ve got time.

The frustrating bit is finding all the projects. For example, my Zip drive. I bought it years ago for doing backups, and it did the job well. But now I have the capacious External Hard Drive. I thought I’d eBay the Zip drive, as I spent a hundred dollars buying it and a bunch of Zip disks (yeah, they used to be over $10 each). When I looked on eBay to see what they were selling for, well, they’re somewhere above pocket lint, but below a cheap flash drive. So I might as well give it away (you want a Zip drive and disks?). But first I want to make sure I copy off all the files I want to keep, then erase the disks. I almost started in on this today, but it could take an hour or two, and I don’t have the time for that right now! I still need to complete next Monday’s comic and finish my preparations for the visting and wedding.

And there are other projects. Many others. I feel like I’m barely keeping up with the top of the priority stack, so those other Things To Do languish. Until I’m working on something else, and they beckon for my attention, that is....
