Here at the Library

Snow today, lots of snow. I thought I’d come to the library to post a little something I had written, but it seems I can’t access the floppy drive at the library. Strange. Does anyone know if this is common practice at other libraries?

It is freezing…freezing cold out. As usual I saw birds floating/sitting on the ice in the river. How can hollow boned little birds sit on the wet ice in a snowstorm and not freeze to it? I expect if I were to examine them closely I would see a small flock of dead birds, frozen and stuck to the ice. They had beat their wings in a last ditch attempt to warm the air enough to free their feet, but alas, like the locusts (3rd story), it was to no avail. Sad, sad little birdies.

Maybe I should send a few cats out for a free lunch.

    It happens a lot here, but only because people bring disks formatted for Macs and we don’t have Macs.

    When I double click on My Computer, the floppy drive doesn’t come up as an option to
    access. 🙁

    Were you supposed to be allowed to use floppy disks? Sometimes the settings get changed after we install a new program or whatever.

  4. Kari says:

    Also, yes, some libraries just don’t allow use of disks for fear of viruses.

    It had a floppy drive…maybe they just didn’t take it out.
