Otherwise known as the Blizzard that wasn't. I hear the wind right now, and there is some blowing snow, but its not the 15+ inches they were all harping on. I'll be surprised if I wake up to 8 or 9 inches in the morning.
All that being said, I still had to drag my lazy ass to work today. It was one of the rare times I wasn't driving into Manhattan. Nope, today I enjoyed the wonders of the NYC Transit System. Not to be confused with the NYC Transient System (although I think I did spot one homeless person keeping warm and dry and sleeping on the train) it is better run then it was in my college days. Probably safer too. Probably.
Now, there was one advantage to not driving in to work (besides saving on gas): I had about an hour to and from that I was able to read some gaming goodness on my Kindle DX. Yes, I gripped it tight, but use it I did.
Finally got around to giving The Dungeon Alphabet a good read. I am truly amazed at how well the artwork is reproduced on the Kindle DX. I did have to rotate the screen orientation to make the viewed page large enough to be read comfortably, but that is a minor quibble. I kinda lost myself in the tables and art and before I knew it it was time to change trains from the express to the local... nice little time warp.
Tonight I need to move some of my more recent PDF purchases to the DX. Tomorrow looks to be another train day. I plan to make it work for me ;)
