Fishing License

Got my fishing license in the mail today. I ordered it online last week after stopping to get one at the hardware store in Columbia, only to be told, "Frank is out to lunch right now and he's the only one around here who knows how to work the computer". *grin*

Instead, I took advantage of the Mayor's new DSL while in town and printed out a temporary license to use while on vacation. Good thing, too; I caught some catfish, spot, drum, brim, redfin and a few crabs off the pier.

It's great that the NC Wildlife Resources Commission has all the licensing and regs stuff available online now. It amuses me that since I ordered my permit online, they printed the exact time of issuance--right down to the second--on the license. Does that mean if I get caught fishing at 04:03:56 on 09-08-07, I'll be a poacher? I can't quite figure that one out, especially since I ordered the license at about 12:30pm. Hmm. I think I got gypped out of about 8 hours!

Columbia has townwide wi-fi? Columbia, North Carolina??

Yes, Columbia, NC.

No, not townwide. And no, not wi-fi. The Mayor got DSL in his house a couple of weeks ago. I was in town visiting my relatives and he knew that I knew about computer so he had me install the modem when it arrived. So, a few days later, when yarbiedoll needed the internet, she just went down to his house and used his computer and printer.

Also, the mayor of Columbia is my grandfather. ;-)

Until I got to that last sentence, I was VERY impressed that you knew the mayor. =P

D'oh. Excuse the poor reading comprehension skills, it was late and I was tired.

And I'm only slightly less-impressed that DSL is available in Columbia, NC. I remember when you couldn't even get cable there! ;)
