just like to throw out a big fuck you to SBC for disconnecting my internet connection everytime I fucking connect to my computer from outside

What the fuck is the point of having an IP address if I can’t use it to connect back to my computer from somewhere else?

All I was trying to do was run aim from home instead of school. thats what, a few extra kb of upload bandwidth?

random quotes column, indeed!

Oh sweet g0d` no! Please, please, please don’t let BioWare be bought by Microsoft. As long as it took for Neverwinter Nights to make it to Mac and Linux, I more than appreciate it being available on both :o( And I know that if MS has their way, the words ‘multi’ and ‘platform’ will only be used in reference to Windows XP and the next XBox within the great halls of BioWare.

Le sigh. I was going to make an entry a la Chris’ hailing all of my fondest gaming memories, but for now the topic saddens me.

The reason for the continued lack of entries recently has been mostly due to time…. if I’m not working or doing school assignments I’m trying to relax or work on a quiet project.

That last is something I’m pretty interested in right now. I never knew CSS would be as easy to pick up as it is, or how easy it would be to do fairly fancy stuff with it.

I should mention my recent night of debauchery and fun I had at the PRESS BOX at the brand new PetCo Park. The game was terrible, but the seats were fantastic and the new park is really amazing itself. And all you could eat hot dogs, and sodas didn’t hurt. Or the near 4 foot plasma TV in the lounge for when some people decided it was too cold to watch the game outside (behind home plate no less) on the comfy rolly chairs. But if I did mention that, I might be drawn into a moment of reflection and forget I was writing this down.

Well, it is getting on toward when I should be heading to work, so I’ll leave this entry for now, though it is shorter than I would have liked.

maybe vicki can pronounce mozilla

ok, so you know you’re pathetic when you refer to your own username in the third person.

my unix teacher: “I don’t know if that’s something particular to vicki’s [her personal account] permissions or not… I’m not sure what she’s allowed to do.”

I suppose it could just be mild MPD…

oh. obligitory simpsons quote for today:

Todd: “Daddy, what do we taxes pay for?”

Ned: “Oh, why, everything! Policemen, trees, sunshine! And lets not forget the folks who just don’t feel like working, God bless ’em!”

at least, for me it is.

note to self (the rest of you can ignore):

predefined colorsets. “Somalia Wild Ass”, “The Tall, Loud Type”, “Chicagan Surf”, “Da Kitties”

use a stack to hold, search, and strip tags.

store entry as an html doc

wow…. perl, XHTML, CSS…. the world is all starting to come together…..

whoa… JuK

Oh dear.

After some thought I suppose I should reword (or at least explain) my entry about my Unix class…

When I say “beneath me” I mean…. I should/could be doing/learning something far more meaningful…

I guess the easiest way to describe it is with an analogy. The homework my Linux teacher gives me is like a teacher giving Chris 500 Algebra problems… or giving Amber 500 vocabulary words and having her write out each one in a sentence. Every week. It’s Asinine.

By the way… Kontact == Superb. Gaim == Better with every release. JuK… well, lets just say this… it took 1736 of my mp3’s and properly ID3 tagged them in 5 minutes, with just one little click. As nice as iTunes is, I’ve yet to find that particular button…
