Nitecap: Soft and warm continuum

It’s getting late and I’m on my 5th disc download of RedHat RHEL-5.7 i86_64.  Please stop me now if this is not the right version for the MacBook Pro i7 processor because I am running out of blank discs.  I didn’t want to go with the beta versions because I have a lot of applications to test and beta would only complicate things.

The screendoor is open.  For the first time in more than a month, the air conditioner isn’t droning and drowning out the sound of the world outside.  Tonight, I hear the rain tapping low and high notes on my weatherbeaten deck.  While I wait for the binaries to download, I’m sipping a bit of white wine and listening to the watery music.

Break open your best boxed Merlot and join me.  Tonight, Eva Cassidy sings, life goes on and the loveliest sounds in the world can not be bought for any price.

This is an open thread.  What did you do today?
