Long Time No Post

The job run-up to the end of the year is insane. I have a whole bunch of stuff about half done, but no time to finish any of it.

My old cell phone started going odd, so I replaced it with a Motorola Droid. Android has a Blogger client, and I'm test-driving it with this post.

I can barely type with all ten fingers, let alone just my thumbs.

"I can barely type with all ten fingers, let alone just my thumbs."

Ain't that the truth?

After who knows how many line of code and configurations I've written, I still have to look at my fingers. Good thing I'm not being paid for my typing skills.

I have a Droid. I would never dare attempt to use either the virtual keypad or the tiny real one to type a blog post.

You are far braver than I!

That is all well and good, but how is the new rifle? What scope did you select? How does it shoot? Are you pleased with the trigger? Are you thinking you should have gone with .338 Lapua instead of .308 Win?

The rifle still hasn't shipped. As far as a scope, I listened to my Marine scout sniper friends and got the Leupold Mark 4 10x40mm LR/T with the mil-dot reticle.

My caliber choices were between .300 Win Mag and .308 Win, so I went with .308 for recoil characteristics and availability. But if Kimber made the rifle in .338 Lapua, I might have ordered it that way.

So I pretty much have everything but the rifle. Ain't that always the way?

Welcome back!

Yeah, I just got an Iphone and blogging on it is a pain. I'd much rather use my EeePC.
