Marching Band: Big budget fight due to $1.2m budget cut. (less students => less state money) Sports is attacking music (band, Orch, Vocal). The battles begins Tues 3/23. They also want to take away our concession stand contract, we have had since 1985 or bribe them with 40% of the take. The stadium was built with tax dollars not football money.
Marching Band: Results of contest. We got all ones and all Es. Judges were impressed. It is the first step to sweepstakes.

Work: Does anyone know of a file dump/restore type untility. I would like to feed it C structs or XML to read the bytes out of a binary configure file and output XML (dump) and then to reverse the process(restore)?

LINUX I looking for a directory of linux programs with descriptions that are one liners.

Marching Band: Today is the final contest. YEA! And I don't have to go! DOUBLE YEA! This is the contest that COUNTS. It is the first step to sweepstakes. It is very different from the other contests. No points for props. YEA! I think marching band should be MARCHING and BAND, not how much money you spend on props and how weird you can act on the field. Ah, for the good old days.

RE: Whoever replied: The big bands in my area are BA, Jenks, Union, Owasso. They almost need to be in a 7A rating instead of 6A. Many of the other bands consider them to be a "pro" team instead of a learning experience for ALL kids. Winning is more important to them then building adults from kids.

Work: Learning InstallShield. I am not impressed so far.

Missing Person Police have finally agreed that he has had a breakdown, and not just running away.

Concession Stand Only two more games to go. Just stocked 99 cases of Pepsi. They even brought along 3 people to help! Way to go Pepsi!

Advogato: How do I find someone else's diary entry that refers to me? I was going to reply (see above) but took too long and the entry is not in recent!

Printer: Installed the Epson driver, again!? Or did I only think I had installed the new one off their web site? The status program is happy. YEA! XP still sucks, so...

Linux: I cheated and removed the floppy so I would have a physical place for the hard drive. Tried an email to Compaq customer support so I can buy disk bracket for the old fasion mount the drive vertically below the disk cage. Their reply was call their 800 number as it was too complicated to resolve via email???

Cingulair:I lost my cell 6 months ago. My agent told me to check back in August for a renewal and free phone. So I did, and guess what? Cingulair has changed their upgrade policy, no free phones! Fine, I'll switch providers. Now, There is a nationwide change happening a that non-"local" cell numbers no longer being free to the caller!! All of the Baby Bells are dropping the capability for letting the cell companies pay for the out of area calls into a cell phone! So I may need a new number anyway.

Marching Band We placed 3rd! Yea, the changes worked. Our football team is winning games, that means bigger crowds, more work for me and my team, but bigger profits for the band.

POLL When you think of Oklahoma, What are your first thoughts?

  • Indians and Cowboys?
  • Dust Bowl?
  • Murrah Building?
  • Modern Cities with culture & techies?
Printer Fixed! The color ink cartriage was empty. Epson's status program installer says I do not have an epson installed. Then what am I printing on? A stone tablet? Cant' wait to get Suse Linux installed on the new computer.

Need linux so I can work on my projects again.

  • zipcracker
  • redoing all the RFC's into "docbook"
