day 24

Posted by eric on November 24, 2006

I’m this far along with NaBloPoMo, not gonna let it slip by now…
Some quick hits:
— Larry Coker is officially fired as the head coach of the UM football team. Not exactly a surprise, since plenty of people have been expecting it for the past few months. He will coach the bowl game, if we get an invitation — that largely rests on the outcome of tomorrow’s VT-UVa game. And as far as the new coach… who knows.
— I saw lines stretching all the way around a Best Buy shortly after midnight — five hours until the store opened. Nuts. I know some people love it, but it’s not for me. Three years ago, I went to a Circuit City on Black Friday (around 10 AM, after producing the morning show), and picked up a scanner at a good price, as well as some DVDs and CDs. Don’t think I’ve been shopping on the day since.
— I now have a new UM sweatshirt. Which is a good thing, because my current one is about 6 years old, and starting to shrink.
— In the next few days, I may be upgrading the software that currently runs my photo gallery. Right now, I use Gallery v1.x. I’m thinking of giving 2.x a shot. It looks like it’s a nice upgrade. There are reasons for the timing, but I’m not going to elaborate on them here at this point.
That’s what’s running around my mind at the moment (or at least a sample of it…).

    I’d recommend trying out Gallery v2.x in a parallel install (i.e., don’t upgrade your 1.x install) before making the final switch. I switched over when I changed hosts, and I really don’t like the new version and miss the old one desperately.
