The winter quilt is about ready to start sewing. I'm awaiting big shipments from hancock's in Paducah and Pine Tree QuiltWorks in Maine, battings/fabric and thread respectively. Both places are pretty speedy so I should be in business soon. I ordered white battings this time because this winter quilt really needs white under all that white snowy background. Normally I use unbleached (or whatever is handy).

Sent out a whole bunch of resumes today and I had emailed a bunch on Sunday, so let the job offers start rolling in any time now...... :-) I'm still pondering the "help needed to exercise icelandic horses" poster I saw up in a local post office. Do horses really need help exercising?

My other big news is that I signed up for the SETI project "Search for ExtraTerrestrial Life" - a research project at Berkeley. Uses the CPU power of 2.5 million home computers (in their spare time) to analyze data from radio telescopes. Took about 16 hours to run the first work unit I received. The second one seems to be going faster. Since it only runs when you're not doing something with your computer, it doesn't effect computer speed at all. The combined power of all these personal computers is supposed to be about 15 terraflops.
