This has been Shit Week.
Shit Week is expected to continue until at least Tuesday of next week.
This Links post is ginormous and is behind the break. I did not get to do a sweep of the Net because, as I stated, this is Shit Week. I will probably not get to sweep the Net until the end of Shit Week.
Kittens still alive.
No big Net sweep today due to hardware change. Had to uninstall one brand of printer, install a different one. Uninstalling took about ninety frikkin minutes! And that, HP, had better not be a taste of what you might do to webOS! As for the other printer, both the CD-ROM and web-download versions of the drivers failed to install. Maybe you should rethink selling printers, Kodak!
After the break, a shorter Links post than usual.
The kittens are alive but seem to be too twitchy and I still wonder about their survival and what this will all cost.
In the meantime, I didn’t get to sweep the web today but this is still the longest Links post I’ve done and must be put behind a break.
There are some new categories this time. They will appear as warranted in future.
No time for my usual sweep of sites. Kittens still seem alive. Must drop off early tonight to give this PC a scan (yes, OS X owners, you may guffaw).

I was able to touch the kittens today. But I still can’t tell if these are survivors. They look like furry sandworms even when I was gently rubbing their backs. Eyes still closed, no meowing, still helpless tiny things.
