cooperating, etc

McAllen and I went to Sasona yesterday to talk with Hannah about our next steps. She was looking at property and found a church in Hyde Park which looked promising / worth looking at. I wonder why our realter didn't find it / point it out to us. I can't get too hopeful about it yet, since we haven't even looked at it, but it's good to be in the position now where we can start moving forward again and looking at properties, since we know now that NASCO Properties can buy the building, and that seems like our best financing option. At one point, Hannah was saying that we should have a common room that connects to other rooms that people need to pass through, since otherwise it would be a community room that pretty much never got used, and then, as if on cue, someone walked through the community room in which we were meeting. I agree that this would be highly desirable, although it seems like it would be hard to do if we bought an apartment complex that we tried to run as a typical housing co-op. That seems like an advantage of a commercial building like a church which would presumably have a lot of open space that we could remodel, that we could lay out the building the way we want to some extent, although such a building might have its own zoning and finance-related challenges.

I spent a lot of time this week backing up my hard disk, replacing it, reinstalling, and restoring from the backup. Now I'm trying to run jhbuild since I have ample space.

I feel like I used to write a lot of interesting things, and now I can't think of anything interesting to write. Perhaps it's my time to do things rather than write.
