A Filled Weekend

This weekend was good. It was my 9/80 Friday, so I got three days off this time.

I spent the first part of the day making a roof mount for my Hi-Lift jack on the Hummer. A few people posted on the Club Hummer Off Road forum some clever methods for doing this. A 1/2" carriage bolt fits perfectly into the channel for the roof rack rails. I went down to Lowes and bought a bunch of stainless steel hardware along with some rubber stoppers and put together a simple yet sturdy mount.

The night was finished up with a trip to the movies to see Transformers 2 on the IMAX screen. I enjoyed all the effects, but it was very much like watching the first. Not much of a plot, but the IMAX made the visuals and sound very enjoyable.

Ellen took our friend Rene out for cruise up the coast to Malibu in the Solstice. The weather has been so nice along the water, still in the seventies!

They took in some sights on the way, like the canals in Venice (California).

What did I do for that seven plus hour stretch? I played Bioshock! I am getting close to the end, finally. The plot has totally sucked me in.

We took our time getting up and moving. Had breakfast at Denny's and lounged for a while. I did some more work on my computer rack, making room for yet another Macintosh I recently acquired. I will have pics later. We spent the afternoon over at Ellen's folks for some time in the pool. We finished the night with dinner at Spires.

Recently, my parents found the invoices from the custom software I wrote back when I was in high school. I even had a sample of the mailing labels still around. I scanned them in for your viewing pleasure.
