Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer


I made it safely to Acton where I'll be having dinner tomorrow with my brother and sister-in-law and a number of my sister-in-law's relatives. (Well, I'm staying in Acton but the meal will be in downtown Boston at my brother's brother-in-law's place.)

Getting through MSP was no problem, checking in was simple and security was less of a hassle than when I last flew. Getting into Boston was a bit trickier (they only had one runway open for a while due to fog) but I was only about twenty minutes late. They had meals for sale on my flight (they didn't sound particularly exciting or worth the cost) but they ran out of them about halfway through the plane. Surprising. I had my usual CPK lunch.

Tonight I helped my brother cut the bottom 3/4" off of the two doors in his guest room so that they could be hung again (they recently installed new carpet and because of its height the doors wouldn't go back on their hinges). I also gave him my old 802.11b router to replace his half-dead 802.11b router. (They're the same model but look very different, have completely different power supplies and radically different web configuration interfaces. If I'd been more clever I might have taken some pictures to share of our sawing adventure tonight but I didn't. I did upload some blurry pictures from a trip to the zoo three and a half years ago recently.

Happy Turkey Day
