+Lesley Wilson Zactly the same for me. I was driving up the street to my condo complex, and the moon was right there in full splendor. It made a nice birthday present from mother nature. :)

Pretty moon tonight, so I tried a couple pictures, to see how my new phone does as a camera. One image was made with the flash and one was made without.

Today's after-action report. Five hours of GURPS, in which we defeated a giant (two meters across) magic-using spider and a mummy who conjured a sandstorm to blind us. Then game night, in which we played Settlers of Catan with the personality cards, two games of Carcassonne, and a game of Flash Point: Fire Rescue. I did well with my new halfling removalist in GURPS, came in second in Settlers, and won both games of Carcassonne. We all won Flash Point, in spite of two nasty explosions.

+Jay Bryant after I posted that, I wondered if that was the joke. But in all fairness I read this pre-coffee.

Which continent do you live on? Feel free to add your country in the comments, if you like. I live in the United States.

Apologies to our Australian members. Google Plus lets polls have only five options. After tossing Antarctica, I left out Australia because it has the lowest population of the remaining six continents. If you are from Australia, please pipe up in the comments.

(Someone mentioned the idea of figuring out which continent folks are on, and I thought a poll would do the trick.)

You should have picked continents based on number of internet users. I would bet money that Australia is higher than Africa...

I hardly ever go into Fry's any more. The only reason to go is if I already know exactly what I want, and it's such a simple item that can't possibly make a mess of selling it. Today's trip is a fine example of why I don't go there. My headset broke, so I thought I'd get a new one at Fry's. First, I had to find them. The idiots put a sale sign over the sign on the end cap that would have told me which aisle had headsets. Fine. I find headsets, sans help from anyone at the store. Then I find one that might suit me, but I can't tell if it has a USB connection. So I find someone (admittedly, a nice, helpful person) and he runs off to find out if the thing does USB. The folks who supposedly know don't know, so they open it. We could have done that in the aisle and saved that ten minutes. In the meantime, I've found another one that has a USB connection and is $10 less. (I''m sensitive to the price of headsets, because previous experience tells me I'll have to return the first two before I get one that works worth a damn, and I may not be able to return it, given the wonderful return policy at Fry's.) So I get to the checkout counter, and the clerk tells me it's twice the price I expect. The sign on the shelf doesn't actually correspond to the product placed directly over the sign. Now I'll buy a headset online, which means that my friends will just have to put up with me not having a headset today. And that was my last trip to Fry's. Misleading pricing, a return policy designed purely to penalize customers, and a general air of "We just want to take your money, not actually help you" is the trifecta that will send me shopping anywhere else.

At first, I had a very poor experience with a seemingly uncaring and bureaucratic agency. Then some good people who work at Austin Energy stepped up and took care of my issue. So there are good people there, and I'll adjust my rating accordingly.

I ordered a pizza. The driver took it somewhere else and tried to give me someone else's pizza. Then he went and got my pizza (which had been in the hands of someone else, of course). I refused that, since who knows what may have been done to it. Then I called the store to reverse my credit card transaction. I waited on hold for 10 minutes and 53 seconds, only to have the phone system disconnect me. In the next call, I got someone who was clearly not too versed on the system. Who knows whether the transaction was actually reversed? So now I'll have to watch my credit card account for a couple days. Given that delivering the right pizza to the right address is more than they can do, I can find somewhere else to buy a pizza.

I called at 10 AM. They said they'd be along between 5 and 7 PM. I called again at 6:30 PM. They said they'd be along between 7:30 and 8 PM. Now it's just about 9 PM, and I haven't seen or heard from them. And now I'm calling someone else. Get service anywhere else.
