Upgrades and Roast Beef

I’m having people over in an hour for a roast beef dinner that I’ve been slow cooking for almost seven hours now.  It’s sort of a moving in with Frank celebration.  It will also be the last carnivorous meal I eat ‘til Easter.

It’s been a week of odds & ends.  Got my car and tenant insurance taken care of.  My vehicle inspection is underway.  Plates come next.  Jenny’s video is rendering.  I’ve officially changed all my addresses now that I have a more stable living situation.

I’m in the process of upgrading Sweeney, Phillie, and my iPhone (Jude) to iCloud.  Apple is shutting down it’s mobileMe service in June and I might as well make the transition now, since everything else in my life seems to be in transition.  There’s been a few hiccups, but so far I have ‘em under control.

I also have some thinking to do with my website.  Once Apple shuts down mobileMe, I’ll need to find a new host.  That in itself isn’t a big problem, but I’ll lose features like comments upon moving.  It got me thinking about checking out sites like Blogger, or WordPress.

My blog would be much more available to a wider audience, and I have mixed feelings about that.  Being stashed away on Apple’s servers is like having my own private acreage in a forgotten, not well travelled, corner of the internet.  I can do and say whatever I want without too many people finding out (aside from the six people who read this).  Going public on a blogging site will be akin to taking up residence in the heart of a bustling metropolis.

I don’t suppose my writing style would change any.  I’m pretty much the same person in print, as I am in real life.  I might be a little more selective about what I say in regards to my projects, and the strategic planning I take with them.  I’ll give it some more thought.

Well, it’s time to start cooking the potatoes.  We’ll do some kind of reading after supper as well.  I’m thinking Firefly, or something.  We can watch the episode afterwards.  I dunno, we’ll see.
