Philip Greenspun: “Retirement forces you to stop thinking that it is your job that holds you back.”

Continuing on the bagel topic, Izzy’s Brooklyn Bagels on Townsend is pretty good. Lunch today was tuna, lettuce, tomato and red onion on a toasted sesame. One of my all time favorite foods. Sure, it’s no Ess-a-Bagel but then again, we’re not in New York. Otherwise Izzy’s wouldn’t have to add the ‘Brooklyn’ part now would they? 😉
Two more signs of settling in after the big move. First, my mp3 server’s back up (not gonna point to it sorry). The motivation? Radiohead’s The Bends. I actually have one of those unlimited online music accounts, but for what I can only guess are obscure legal reasons, you only get 30 second clips even for paid-up members. Argh. Happily the machine where my music lives was online and I merely had to ssh in and fire up a web server. Second sign of settling in: Program My TiVo! is back up (knock wood).
