So, over the weekend, I usually step away from the computer and pick up the camera. Well, this past weekend, I confess, I did not step away from the computer as much as I had planned, and did not pick up a camera as often as planned. Suffice to say, I did find some rather meaningless trivia out from my computer time.

A neighbor is starting a work-from-home type business where he makes signs and he is using some software called PXI. Asked if I could come over and install his fonts and clipart. After doing so, and poking around the software for a little bit, it looked very strikingly like Photoshop, although I didn’t get a chance to give it a full run. Neat little program.

The next little factoid is that I made some significant progress on the screened-in-porch. I got the light/fan up finally, and after getting successful power indications (whirring fan and lit lights), proceeded to enclose the rest of the paneling. But, before I closed it in, I snapped a few posterity shots off. Of particular note is my first corner wire pull success story in a pre-built environment for non-network purposes. I was giddy as a school boy for pulling this off with minimal assistance (just a big enough drill bit from my neighbor to bore out the center column), so naturally I had to include it in my Monday morning wrap-up! That’s a 2×4 on each side of a 6×6 support!


Here’s another view, closer in on the corner wiring:


Last but not least, apparently there are more than a few listeners. On Thursday, CB passsed the 10K listener mark (I didn’t realize it at the time). So thanks to those that are listening, or at least tuning in to read, skim, or listen!


I also heard from a friend who I guess subscribes in iTunes, who saw that CB was listed on the New and Notable section for Technology How-To page 2:


That prompted a little more digging on my part. Apparently from my last ten video podcasts, only one numbered fewer than triple-digit downloads.


Talk about a shot in the arm! I was amazed that not only are some people listening, but that the numbers were that high! Totally blown away here, and I just wanted to say thanks to all 10K+ of you who have tuned in.
