blue laid one more egg, bringing the total to 4. it was in the water dish, this time. it had a little dimple cracked into it. i wonder how these animals ever manage to reproduce, the way they handle their potential young. he’s been chomping pieces off of his cuttlebone. that’s supposed to be a good sign: means he’s replacing lost calcium from the egg shells. i moved him over to a processed/pelletized diet a few months ago, worried about his nutrition. that was the only other suggestion that cockatiel.org had for egg laying diet. i guess i’ll just wait and see, they also say 3 to 6 eggs is normal.
i spent the weekend intentionally undistracted. i’ve obviously got alot to think through and wanted to avoid keeping myself busy. i cleaned up the apartment, a little. it’s looking more reasonable, but still pretty cardboard-ridden.
i did move my micro-atx motherboard into a full-sized case (antec sonata), to support a dual dvi-d out video card (nvidia 6800GT fabbed by xfx). it’s now feeding my dell 2005FPW (in “portrait” orientation) and my new 2405FPW (in “landscape”). highly highly recommended. “ultramon” is an indispensible app for dual-head machines. i’ll take some pictures and post a review of all the parts, including software, later.
i felt foul this morning. digestive stuff; ew. stayed home and spent most of the day relaxing, save a conference call and a pile of mail i replied to.
