Blood Drive at K-State

Forgot to mention that the next day I came across a table in the K-State Student Union where they were taking signups for donation times and/or volunteering.

So I scheduled an appointment for 1pm, today (October 3rd).

Meanwhile...yesterday I got 2 phone calls (at least two that left voicemails) asking me to come in and donate.

Today...I got 3 voicemails to come donate blood. All to my old Dublin, Ohio number with Vonage....namely because that's the number I was giving out when I first moved here (since I had it forwarded to my cellphone and didn't yet have any local services). I'll probably cancel my Vonage account sometime this month....because this is probably the only exception for calls that I do want to get....the rest are job offers which continue to pour in, and most of them are the nuisance ones that aren't even close to what I did or do for a living.

Anyways...today's donation was somewhat more entertaining....though I shouldn't be taking pleasure in other people having a bad experience giving blood. Though it takes me back to when I first gave blood at the University of Calgary....while my first time was uneventful...there were a few 'interesting' experiences in subsequent donations.

The Cloister Bell was ringing all night

I went to bed early last night, hoping to catch up on some zz's :zz:

It didn't work out that way....first the HOT phone kept jumping around all night, lept off once during the night. But, equally annoying was that the cloister bell was sounding on my computer in my living room.

That means from my computer's prespective one of the websites I monitor had gone down....the sites I monitor are this one and http://www.lhaven.net. Poopli and the K-State main page.

As it was, I don't think any of those sites went down (though I've been having issues lately with this site....) Turned out part of my WiFi network had failed. I've been thinking of replacing parts of it with HomePlug network adapters....but if I were to implement the plan...it was to span the large distance of my living room to my 'computer' room. And, not the opposite corners of my living room....

But, I guess I might have to rethink my plans....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
