is flickr choking?

it took me more than 5 minutes to upload flickr photos from my mac, and I asked someone working at yahoo and say the 3 photos i uploaded are just fine. so, the upload did work, huh?

i did try to login from my browser and it failed. annoyed, i moved onto my windows with ie, then windows with firefox, linux with firefox, ...., etc.

finally, i left my last login window at the blank white page with the loading circle thing running like the squirrel in a cage and left for dinner. that was an hour ago. i can get to any other sites just fine, just like this i still am not loggin onto the site.

maybe i should take a nap and come back. yawn!

what's happened?

justice for all -- commissioner steps in for unsportsmanlike conducts

not fully 24hrs since Bernier of Sharks got hit from behind, with full malice intent and no accident, NHL suspended the Nashville player who hit Bernier during friday's game 2. Finally, justice. Too bad nothing's done for Cheechoo's hit from game 1 other than that game's suspension. Still, maybe this will make Nashville to play by the book, and lift Shark's morale that they can play clean and sportsmanlike and still win.

respect for NHL commissioner. looking forward to the game 3, clean and fair!


this old house.... live!

i'm watching this old house, boston version of a house near the airport.

and, am hearing the footstep and motor sounds upstairs, of window installers who showed up 9:30am prompt.

within half an hour the bedroom windows are out, and the livingroom one's half way out. they brought their own ladder with platform to work on 2nd floor bedroom and livingroom. they got their wood cutting unit at the front porch, and the motor sound is sweet sound of getting argon gas for double-pane.

oh, boy! i got 'this old house' seattle version going on in my own house.

giggle* giggle*

i do try to stay out of their way, but also am sneaking around with my portable camera, dying with curiosity. let's see how the house is aired with new windows and sliding deck-door at the end of the day, as they promoised...
