Howdy Nancy, and cats:
I've been spending a lot of time on Fatty Kitty's blog lately, trying to catch up with the rest of the librarians in our experiment/challenge to learn all we can about social software. Actually, as I sit here typing, PJ is sitting on my lap, watching the letters make their way across the screen.
I've spent most of this Saturday evening learning about podcasts, embedding a YouTube video into that blog, and signing up for Del.icio.us. (I think I'm really going to like that - I already have this blog tagged and one of the tags is ncdrew - pretty soon I'll have a whole set of things tagged with ncdrew.)
If you are interested in any of the (very brief) tutorials on all this Web 2.0 (that means the second generation of internet interactivity), check out the Montana Library Wiki on it.
Meanwhile, to comfort myself while I'm doing homework, I have bought myself a new cup:
Wow, that is definitely a "Mary" color, isn't it?
For some knitting news, you'll be interested to know (a funny phrase - you might not be interested at all!) that I'm building a knitting database. Supposedly, in this database I'll have tables with patterns, and the source of the patterns (book or pamphlet, etc), and the yarn I have, and needles, and projects. Heh heh. I might be delusional about this, but we'll see. I'm interested in just seeing if it will work with a few sets of data in it - don't know if I'll ever get it up to the full amount of knitting detritus laying about the house....anyway, I should go to bed now. I've got red eyeballs. Love, Mary
