Concert fun!

susandeer, jadedfox and tracerj all made it to the concert. It was a good concert, I’d give it a B+. The band literature isn’t as difficult as the orchestra work, but it’s still a pile of work. I think that Esprit de Corps, The White Ensign, and English Folk Song Suite all came off the […]

They, like many other companies do, included one of those little pamphlets in their this quarters mailing that’s titled “Investment Disclosure Communication: Our Privacy Policy and ow SIPC protects investors.” It’s one of those countless fine-print jobbies you get in […]

Technilogical Sins…

What does it say on a company that this is an end of a bug report: ——- Additional Comment #2 From bigtig 2004-09-29 11:35 ——- I believe that this bug has been addressed and may be closed. ——- Additional Comment #3 From bigtig 2005-04-11 16:24 ——- Lack of comment on bug indicates fixed status.

Poison ivy sucks. It must be spring again. Sometimes the big things may pass by without folks noticing. This may very well be the beginning of the end of things stripey.
