I'm on my back, laptop propped against my knees, in the basement. I'm on a fold-up bed. This my first time in this particular configuration. Part of my reason for coming down here was to test whether it would work -- would my wireless card see the access point up in the office. It does. Cool.
And why start a blog? Well, I was reading Johan Maurer's blog and wanted to post a comment, which led to registering, with the invitation to start a blog. Well, I'd already started one using downloaded software (pybloxsom -- reserving the right to fix typos by the way). But it's somewhat moribund at this point. Has the same name (Grain of Sand). So that's why. So now I'll go post that comment.
