Wednesday. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. We had another day today of Spiceworks being down for nearly the entire day. It was weird, for most people the community was totally offline but I was able to be on it for most of the day, but not all of it. But far more than other people. So that drove a lot of traffic to MangoLassi over the past two days as this has been going on since yesterday in the early afternoon. It’s been a bit of a wild week. And all of this following the Monday announcement that SpiceWorld London was canceled only six months before the event. I had been thinking of flying in from Cluj to see the event, as well.
Today was a quiet day for me in the back bedroom trying to get things done. I got a ton of posting done, some small projects and got to do some early Black Friday shopping online. I got a Humble Bundle of O’Reilly UNIX books, like a ton of them, for super cheap. That was a great deal, could not pass it up. GOG’s sale started yesterday and I got Technobabylon. Steam’s Autumn Sale started today and I got lot of games, mostly for Dominica, in it. Francesca says that she is going to buy a bunch of games in the sale as well, but she said that last Christmas, and over the summer as well, so we will see if the third time is a charm.
We did nothing this evening, just hung around the house. Dominica and Francesca have to be up very early tomorrow morning so no going out tonight.
