After 2 hurricanes in about 2 weeks, I propose that we have no more weekend hurricanes. Having a public holiday and all island curfews on a weekend is a waste of time. Time which could be better well spent during the week. Do not be misguided by my statements - I love the rain, prevailing winds, reduction in the murder rate and flooding because of blocked drains but think of the children. I want my weekends back.

I did not publish anything last week for I was somewhat distracted by all the programming I have been doing, and will do if a hurricane doesn't strike by Wednesday. I messed with the default style sheet aka colors of the website. It was a spur of the moment thing between the hurricane warnings and proof by induction. I also made the sitemap longer that any other ever invented and now it truly shows most of everything. Source is up.

It is truly an odd time of year. A time of change, hurricanes and who know what else. I still have not received my drivers licence yet. It is taking longer than first forecasted. I filled out the forms and took the mug-shots ( a bright colored shirt is recommended ). Now I need a Justice of the Peace to sign them of which I am out of luck. Seems you can never find one when you need to, so yet again progress is delayed. This is going to be a rough week.

  3. hey hurricanes arent so bad. You should just come and actually hope that you get to see one. Just a lot of rain, wind, perfect weather for surfing, cus the waves get pretty high. It only gets horrid if they take out the lights and worse if they cut off the water and your tank runs dry.
