Not wanting to work

That is, at my regular job. I have so much web stuff to do that I'm not getting done.

But I'm off. I'll go pick up my purse from k's, because I left it in her car yesterday, then get some coffee somewhere, make my way to work.

(no subject)

I am still dealing with domain transfers. There has to be a better way to do this, that does not depend on the particular host. Maybe there is, but I don't know it.

Although I requested a transfer of the chorale name yesterday morning, that host has done nothing with it. And my efforts to transfer the beat hotel name have run into other stupid things, misunderstandings, and I haven't even gotten to the point of requesting the transfer from the current horrible web host.

Fortunately, some of the tech people have been great, at the places I am moving the domain names to. There is hope. I am just not feeling a lot of it all the way through me yet.

war news

I have avoided a lot of the war news. Today I saw the newspaper spread out in the break room, and lo! the page was full of large pictures of "collateral damage", including a picture of a young girl who was injured in a US bomb attack that killed her mother and aunt, and an article on the reactions of the Iraqi people, from the LA Times. It was the back page but it was nevertheless large, unavoidable.

It surprised me that such coverage would be in such a conservative paper as we have here. I am wondering if it is a way of hedging bets.
