Gah, okay, well this post is going to be shorter than the one I initially was writing before Safari decided to crash on me. GAH!
Anywho, today at work was sucky. I came to work with all this stuff to do, fix a Vaio, make darkwing accounts for everyone, map out the wireless network… well, the Vaio is hosed and I don’t know how to fix it, the people that I was going to help make accounts are gone today, and the PC laptop I was going to use to map out the network has a crappy battery. So, I should have just calling in today and gone outside to play. BAH! Frisbee sounds like a lot of fun right now.
On a better note, I got to hang out with some people over at Kat’s last night. We played a little Mario Party, sat around, watched most of OfficeSpace, and cracked some of the homebrew that has been in the works for a couple months now (due entirely to Cock and I being lazy). It is pretty tasty, it just has absolutely no head retension… meaning the hops didn’t do their thing. It undoubtedly is probably a lot like beer was in the 1800’s before they figured out what Hops did to the world of Beer.
I got the logicboard for my dead Pismo (Powerbook 200 and/or Powerbook Firewire). I hope to swap it out tonight up in portland when I have little to nothing else to do. It will be sweet to have another laptop to play with. The biggest thing is going to be getting a bigger HD for it. Right now it’s only got a 6gig drive. Also on the agenda is getting some parts that should fix the lousy serial converter that Kilo is using while wardriving. it’ll be a little more janky, but atleast it won’t be relying on a crappy ass Belkin serial to usb converter. What happened to Belkin? anyone? They used to just make cables, and good ones… then they started buying other companies that made crappy products and they put those out under the belkin name. I’m never buying their stuff again after having to deal with their shitty shitty customer support when trying to return a shitty shitty KVM switch. never buy their stuff… you’re just asking for trouble.
As I already alluded to, I’m headed up to portland tonight, I should be there through Sunday. I know I’m going to miss the lan… it sucks, but unlike my dentist appointment tomorrow morning, the lan has not been planned for the past 6 months. ;-P While in Portland I will no doubt be seeing val and eric, so I hope to do some more tweaking to my website during that time. fear not the change… hopefully it will be entirely for the better. I also am ansy to get the pictures and personal info page up, but that will require some current pictures of myself be taken. perhaps I can talk someone into doing that for me.
I plan to link other people’s blogs off my personal info page, though it seems somewhat ironic since I rarely read other people’s blogs. I find it far more interesting to talk to them in person. Seems hypocritical since I’m sitting here typing away in my own blog… but hey, I never claimed to be perfect… just as close as one can humanly come. 😉
All that said, I think I’m going to pack up my shite and head home. I need to get some stuff together and take a quick nap before leaving tonight as to not kill any of the other “innocent” people on the road. I hope to see other friends while I’m there… including one I was supposed to see last time, but I never got around to seeing. I hope I can get ahold of him… hmmm… this presents a bit of a problem. oh well, you don’t need to hear about it.
Well, take it easy everyone, stay cool if the weather heats back up, or stay dry if another thunderstorm rolls through the area. LIX, have fun at the lan… drink a beer for me, all of you (1 each, not 1 total). All of you that aren’t part of LIX, but otherwise read the site, have a great weekend, and I hope to see some or all of you soon.
