Getting closer

Found a case to use for my in progress pc robot. May have it done in time to enter a contest. Since the router I planned to use with it is down, I will have to use another one. Aha which one?

Found an issue with OpenOffice I do not like. Hope Excel has the same issue. In any case I found a workaround. The issue has to do with using static cell references when I add a row at the top of a list. I will insert the row one row down and move the upper row contents to it.

The balloon man

Went for dinner at a local market today. It is a very busy market
especially on a Sunday night. While having dinner I watched 5 men
lettings off bunches of balloons in the air.
At first I thought they were some fun loving people who were making
pure merry. Went closer, only to find out that those muscular men
had taken over the balloon man's cycle and were letting off all
the balloons tied to it! I watched the balloon man's plight, he was
a thin man...

They were developed and tested using:
  • An Outlook contacts format CSV file generated by export from Google Mail.
  • gnu awk 3.1.8 on Slackware64 13.1.
  • OTRS 3.0.8 running on Debian Squeeze 64 bit using mysqld and mysql 5.1.49.
The awk script prints usage if run with the -h option.

A sample usage:

Have you ever been to Los Banos?

If you have been to a Mexican restaurant, You'll remember the sign Banos from The Bathrooms. Los banos itself is a city, However the part of it that Interstate 5 runs through (below)

Is nothing. Imagine before that truck, is a freeway ramp. Up this ramp you expect there to be civilization ... That's why it is there.
