October 29, 2003: We continue to await the hopefully not inevitable voluntary evacuation notice -- we're still several miles away from the front line of the fire, but the wind is pretty strong, so anything's possible. Those of you who might expect a call, we won't be calling until it's to let you we're leaving... if you don't…
October 29, 2003: It's pretty creepy up here now. The animals -- we have four cats, a dog, and a turtle -- are getting weirded out. Okay, I don't know about the turtle, but you get the idea. The dog keeps wanting to go outside, where he just walks around and eats grass. The cats are whining. I've…

October 25, 2003: I move closer and closer to eliminating Windows -- and the influence of Microsoft -- from my working environment!
