Oh Boy!

Having a lovely bit of weather right now. Cloudy but cool.

Think if I were gonna go to RenFaire, this would likely be the weekend to do it. If I was a golfing dude, this would also be a good weekend for it. Friend KD keeps asking me if I want to go (to Faire).

I think I’ll pass this year… It doesn't change enough for me to go every season any more. Most of my friends that used to work the faire have moved on. I don't think he realizes just how magical that place (or any RenFaire really) used to be for me. It’s hard to explain. But I think the shine is off the pot at this point though. I had a lot of good times there…


iCloud + iOS 5 + OS X Leopard = 1 Big Headache.

Initially anyway. Like most I was ready for iOS 5 to drop for my phone and my pad. What I didn’t realize at the time was that iCloud doesn’t work with any Mac OS, except Lion, which is the latest release. You Mac heads out there would know this. And stupidly I made a premature move to iCloud from MobileMe. I used MobileMe to keep my Calendars and contacts, etc evergreen between all of my fruit. And once you make the move, Apple is making it difficult, if not downright impossible to go back to MobileMe. Bleh… My Mini was running Snow Leopard and my MacBook was running Leopard. **sigh**

And the only way to get the update? Electronic delivery via the Mac App Store. Oh and your system needs to be running Snow Leopard in order to get the App Store. I was going to upgrade anyway, but craaaaaaaap.

Long story short. All my fruity equipment are now running the latest (respective) OS’s. And everything is in sync again. Had some duplicate entries in my calendar. I expected this so I was not surprised.


What Else?

I’ve been trying to quit smoking again. To be ultimately successful I think I’ll have to stop drinking too. Seems to be a trigger for me. Seems to be… HAHA! Had a couple starts and stops. I am determined to make this happen.

The Greek girl? Sweet. But just attempting to fill chairs at her singing gig as far as I can tell. Nothing happening there. And I don’t really need a romance right now anyway. I’m okay with that. Got other fish to fry first.
