We had the last Cub Scout meeting of the season last night. Thank goodness! It will be good to get a chance to rest on Tuesday nights. Although I also want to work out something for Sebastian and me to do on those nights, since Teri will still be at a meeting then.

Maybe we'll take a stroll.

Had I mentioned that our new kitten Widget - well, he's pretty much past the kitten stage now - has been making me pay the price for saving his claws?

He was tearing the liner in the litter-box to shreds every time, so I had to clean it out and wash it every Tuesday. It was disgusting. I tried a lot of different solutions; multiple liners, filling the box more, taping the liners down...all sorts of things. But I finally seem to have worked out a solution.

Ridiculous, I know, but it's really nice to have taken a horrible chore and made it much less disgusting!

I've noticed a problem viewing old posts using tags. For example, I have a tag for posts about my son (http://bobquasit.livejournal.com/tag/sebastian). These date back to 2003. But when I'm viewing them and try to go back ("Previous 20 entries") past http://bobquasit.livejournal.com/?skip=380&tag=sebastian (which is March 2005), I end up at a single entry for March 2, 2005 - and there is no "Previous 20 entries" link.

The same thing happens when I just try to view old posts in aggregate, rather than individually. It's impossible to "skip" more than 380 posts. Is this how it should be?

Here's a photo of the Traveler restaurant in northern CT. It's well worth a visit if you can get there. A free book with every meal!

Over on Askville (where else?) I gave someone advice about Linux. But I typoed. And the typo was such that I couldn't resist following up:

"It depends on the specific hardware and on what version of Linus you want to install."

As everyone knows, the Great Pumpkin version of Linus uses far more system resources than the security-blanket and armchair-theologian versions. :D

I would have sworn that I'd posted this long ago.

Not long after Sam, our old cat, died, I was sitting in front of the computer and looking at photos of him. Sebastian came in the room and watched me; he was just under three years old. As I kept clicking through the pictures, he put his hand on my arm to stop me.

"Wait a minute, Daddy," he said, sounding very determined as he pointed to a picture of Sam on the monitor, "I'm going to go in there and get Sammy back."
