Why I'm not a Food Critic

Had to submit a 'hold mail' form at the local post office during my lunch break so I decided to use one of the restaurant coupons. Decided to try the Iron Horse as I'd never been there before. In retrospect, it was probably a mistake to order the Philly Cheesesteak because I've already had the real thing and that wasn't it. But that aside, it's your basic average fare surrounded by eccentric train-themed decor. Somewhat like TGI Friday's but instead of all that junk, they have lots of trains. Recommended for at least one visit to see what it's like but not where I'd prefer to dine everyday. Sorry.

Predictably, there were problems just before I was about to leave. Look, you have all year to upgrade to Outlook Express 6. You know it will break e-mail reporting. You do NOT do that just before I go on vacation! Geez. Also, a customer could not get his SQL Server up after restoring the master database. Yeah, sure... after all that master databasing, you expect to get it up? :) Anyway, I stayed a bit later to make sure everything else was in an okay state but it looked like everyone else left so I caught up with some Chaos Manor over at Excellent column. Too bad it's not in print form so I can't take it to the necessary room any more. (So when are we going to get those bathroom internet terminals? :) )

The car's all loaded up now. I discovered that it was impossible to fit all my worldly possessions into one 1995 Saturn SL so I had to cut back a bit on the luggage.

Cool part is there is a geocache on I-95 (or in a rest area, most likely) so I'll see if I can get that on the way.

Will write more once I'm there if I can connect to LJ.
