Last week I noticed some flags & spray painted markers on the median between the sidewalk and street (and some on our back yard) near the house.
I was very curious as to what they were for … but I constantly forgot to actually call the village about it.
Well, I finally called today … Hoffman Estates Public Works didn’t know anything about it (they were very nice, btw, something I’ve been becoming more and more appreciative of … I try to thank the person who’s been helpful whenever possible). They suggested I call J.U.L.I.E. about it.
I called the 800 number and there was no way to inquire about it … but voice reponse system told me to call another number (in a/c 815).

Around 6:30 this morning I THOUGHT I heard the phone ringing … but it wasn’t ringing upstairs, so I figured it was on our 2nd line (which happens to be a Vonage Voice over IP line), so I knew it was probably a wrong number (only Steve knows the VoIP number anyway).
Well, woke up to get my coffee and noticed that we had a message on the answering machine … I listened to it and it was indeed Steve calling to tell me that he my system was totally inaccessable.
I hadn’t done anything to the Covad DSL service I figured something was wrong with the Dell server.
Went downstairs and didn’t see anything wrong with the server … but I did notice my Dell laptop was reporting that it couldn’t find a hard drive. Continue reading →
Yes, it was long … I knew that beforehand … but in some ways it wasn’t long enough. I understand they had to cut almost an hour of footage to get it to the 3 1/2 hours they released. I can’t wait for the extended version DVD to come out.
The only annoying thing about the movie was the fact that some people sitting near us talked insesently. It didn’t bother me directly, but they were closer to Ginny … and she had to shush them a few times.
