Our office mouse was stuck in the cube maze. I know how that little guy feels. He did manage to escape, though. I hope I do, too.

I have not even left home, and I get word that there’s a mouse in my cubicle at work… the squeaky cheesy kind, not the pointy clicky kind.

On the plus side, there are some movies that NetFlix shows in Canada that are not available in US. IPv6 tunnel lets me watch them here.

Dangit, NetFlix thinks I am in Canada because my IPv6 tunnel terminates there. It’s not showing me my “List”.

Found my font problem, pilot error >> In Firefox preferences, set “Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above”.

Office getting new door badge readers. Some rocket scientist decided work should start at 8am, locking out the maximum number of people.

My home network has been IPv6-less since September 2012… and I just now noticed it! My router had it, but LAN did not. All fixed now. :-)

Weird… my TV decided that it was time for a firmware update. I wonder if it’ll still work after it’s done.
