Not liking USAA right now. They won't cover the dead tree limb hanging over a window, a down tree in my yard, and said that my deductible is the max coverage I carry. Hoping I just got a rep having a bad day.

Hmmm, yeah, try that one again. Though I don't know that you'll get any help with trees outside the house.

This is quite possibly the greatest prank of the year so far. Also, I hate Illinois Nazis.

Plus one for the prank. Plus one for your Blues Brothers allusion. ;)

interesting. I can't use raw html in a blog post. I can't remember the last time I saw that in blogging software.

Kandi & I have been using <a href="theproducebox.com">The Produce Box</a> for a while, and we basically get enough out of it to keep going. 2 vegetarians, veggies delivered to the door, not exactly hard math. But every week we get something neither of us likes, like eggplant. It's beyond the level of having new stuff to try out in the kitchen, for us.

This coming week we're using <a href="http://papaspuds.com/">Papa Spud's</a> instead. So far it looks promising, especially since I can order a relatively boring selection of veggies as a baseline.

We got the fruit box from The Produce Box last week, and some veggies, breads, and meat from Papa Spuds so far. (We're in week 2 of Papa Spuds -- I especially like it for the variety, but our peaches were in pretty bad shape, not like those from The Produce Box.) I think, overall, TPB may have a slightly higher quality control, but Papa Spuds was quick to credit me when I notified them of the problems with the peaches. So, I'm not really complaining here. We may bounce back and forth between them, depending on who offers what each week.

Despite my ham-handed (tofu-handed?) comments on the continuing crises/crisis, I do try to pay attention. Of course, when Warren Buffet backs one up on econ. theorizing, it's hard to feel very wrong...

Several weeks back in the saddle testing kernel bits (virt storage), it's nice to know I'm not completely lost. Or at least I know people too nice to point it out. Altho I'm still at the part when I run around asking other people about how to do various parts of the job.
Testing a WUI was fun. I think that next pass I might try to be on the creation side of interfaces, it just seems to fit with how I approach testing below userspace.
