I ended up catching up on a few of those niggling chores I don't get too. I balanced the checkbook, paid a few bills, remounted a handrail, and started cutting out game counters.
The handrail won't last, I moved the lower support to the wooden molding, but the upper one had to stay in the plaster, and it seems to move a bit, I expect it will wear through in a few weeks. I need to go to Home Depot, buy some molding for the upper part, and a longer handrail. Good thing I got a $25 gift card for Christmas.
Cutting 1/2 inch game counters out of thin cardboard is tedious and messy, I think I'll buy a bunch of blank die cut counters for next time. Maybe that will be my birthday indulgence.
I did fail at installing JRE 1.5/5.0 on hoary hedgehog, it looks like a lot of steps, and my Ubuntu might be too old. Oh well, I'll play Ticket to Ride online some other way.
