Usually I waffle over possibilities. This weekend I took charge. Took my grandma and ma out to my my grandma both a lawnmower and a a 32″ TV. We went where I thought the best choices would be. Didn’t make her buy the one I thought was the best so making the actual choice was the longest part. Of course, I got to make sure the TV worked. On the downside, I bought things for myself because I thought I should have them instead of waffling over whether or not I should. Added 7 DVDs to my collection such as Spiderman, We Were Soldiers, Force 10 From Navarone. Thankfully, that mood is gone after buying….


Decided I wanted a digital camera. The Fuji FinePix 2400 looks decent for a first one. Actually, it will be my second camera ever, but my first digital camera. Also got the requisite 128 MB SmartMedia card.


After watching Resevoir Dogs recently, I thought, “Quentin Tarantino actually makes another movie so that he can get kewl cameos or parts in other movies like back in the day.” Little did I know about Kill Bill.

My way to get rid of apprehension of war is to delve into the horror of war. I read the goriest books and play the goriest games. Dunno why that makes me feel better.

Waffling

For the record, I think I am pretty tall at 6’4″.


Wonder if legislatures should be required to hire independent consultants to research critical issues and identify potential rammifications for the legislation they create. Just read about an example of Use a Firewall, Go to Jail


Time for dinner! More Cowboy Bebop! Only on Disc 3 or 6..

The LAN party was really kick-a–! We had so much fun. I really enjoyed the games we played when I could connect to them. I need to look into getting another large drive (and maybe a PCI IDE adapter). One thought was to take my spare motherboard, CPU, and RAM to put together a storage server. Would just need to buy some large drives.


Just now returning to work after a conference over at the University of Georgia. Know a few alumni of the school and wish I’d found the opportunity to go up there to visit them back when they were there. The campus is pretty and the scenery great. Was interesting to be some place I’d heard so much about but never seen. Of course, I love to experience new places. Even the grass was greener…


The one hitch is I always seem to think that “data port” means Ethernet connection. Apparently a data port is a telephone port. Yeah, right.


Have an older model G4 in my office so I can learn about Macs. Need a keyboard and mouse and network jack for it. Just having the thing around means that I will be able to test how my web pages appear on a Mac.


I think I understand why I don’t really like to talk on the phone. It feels like I fumble around for words worse than when there is a really pretty girl occupying my attention. Ironically, I fumble for words worse when a female with a pleasant voice is on the other end. That is probably why I could take up chatting on the Net. Fumbled words can be erased before those on the other end receive them. Got a call to attend a “webinar” (yeah, a seminar on the web).


For some perspective… Humans are viruses, to paraphrase Agent Smith. Not Just Your Average Loser (Wired News) Look at the profile:


Male. Obsessed with computers. Lacking a girlfriend. Aged 14 to 34. Capable of sowing chaos worldwide.

This could so be me. “They have a chronic lack of girlfriends, are usually socially inadequate and are drawn compulsively to write self-replicating codes.” Except for the writing code which can reproduce itself (damn, if I could write a program that would update all the servers for me), this might be me. Thankfully, I am not a programmer. I just write scripts.


[Update] Last thing, I swear… got the whole Cowboy Bebop DVD collection. W00t!
