Slept 5-9; 4h :)

The USB-serial adapter arrived this afternoon. I think this is the first time I've actually been at home to receive a FedEx delivery. All those other times, I simply swung by the FedEx office in Mahwah to collect the package. The adapter looks like a rather generic item. The manufacturer's name wasn't even on the package or in the manual. I had to Google the part number to find the manufacturer's website in order to download a more recent driver. Anyway, if this works, that's my solution to connecting the GPS to my notebook computer, which does not have serial ports.

Spent the evening collecting documentation and filling out class action claim forms. I'm not sure that it was worth the time sorting out the documents, photocopying, etc because I expect to get only about $10 in each of the two cases, and that's only if the per-share estimates hold. But it was as good a time as any to straighten out my big plastic tub filing system to make subsequent searches easier.

Solved another puzzle cache this evening. It's a puzzle that I took a look at 2 months ago and set aside. This evening, I took another look at it and knew what it was about. So I guess I'll be going to Western NJ this weekend. Might as well do it now that I have decoded the info.

Werewolf Cafe isn't open yet? Darn.
