I took the day off yesterday from working on software. I went over to Spokane to have my teeth cleaned, then stopped by Harbor Freight. I wanted to look at their smallest wood lathe. I was going to get one, but they didn’t have any turning tools, so I didn’t get the lathe. I think I’ll just find a shop where I can use the lathe – I only want to do a few small things with it anyway.
After Harbor Freight, I stopped by my old job at Solarwinds to pick up the last of my retirement presents. Except that those things were not at work; they were at my old boss’ house. So next time I’m in the neighborhood, I will give fair warning before I go there.
I have a breakfast appointment with Ken on Thursday to talk about the soccer program. He indicated he had found some bugs, but did not indicate what they are and where they are. I guess I’ll find out on Thursday.
In the meantime, I will be looking in to creating some Android programs. I want to do that so I can have some programs I will really want to use on my tablet. Do you know how hard it is to find something like that?
I am also re-doing the North Idaho Mineral Club brochure. It needed updating and converting from M$ Publisher to a more reasonable format. I have done it using LibreOffice.
