sp in river

yes, I suck.

I have a little "days till my birfday" 'counter' picture on my userinfo. I get such a kick out of hearing when people have tried to use it to calculate when my birthday actually is (it's a little game I play, wherein I don't easilly tell people my birthday -- yes, it's childish, but I enjoy it). It just makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. Sometimes I can be such a rat bastard. :)

In other news, I had Kawphy this morning. And am now sipping an espresso drink. My time with serenica69, enjoyable though it was, had the unfortunate side-effect of keeping me up *way* past my bedtime, but I had fun developing film and chatting with some friends of hers. It's too bad something happened (I can't fathom what) that ruined the bulk of the pictures I took in Monterey. I suspect my camera's body might have somehow cracked open or perhaps when the film was out of the camera it may have loosened off it's roll slightly and let some light in -- I did notice one of the rolls felt a little loose. Either way, partway into one exposure it went totally overexposed and remained largely that way for the remainder of the roll. Bummer. I'll be fashioning a light-tight baggie for carrying the film after it's exposed from now on, in an attempt to mitigate this type of occurance in the future.

damn I'm a sad case

I don't know which is worse, that I'm even *doing* this, or that I had to hunt through a chain of 4 lj users before I found someone who posted a link to the directions. :)

Loyal and generous. Sexy. Patriotic. Active in games and interactions. Impatient and hasty. Ambitious. Influential in organizations. Fun to be with. Loves to socialize. Loves praises. Loves attention. Loves to be loved. Honest and trustworthy. Not pretending. Short tempered. Changing personality. Not egoistic. Take high pride in oneself. Hates restrictions. Loves to joke. Good sense of humor. Logical.

Mind you, this is just how I see myself (and how I define the terms). I know from various conversations over the years that some would disagree with the placement of some of those strikes. :)
edit: if you're willing, I'd like to see if/how you'd disagree with the striking. Feel free to post in the comments.



So FedoraCore easilly detected and installed to the SATA drive on the intel chip (first distro to do that), but X is *STILL* unable to properly detect and use the monitor!

FSCKING DELL BASTARDS!!! Not only do they take a crap BIOS and strip it down so it's even worse than before, but they do so in a way that makes anything other than Windows damn near IMPOSSIBLE to run! That, and they don't release Linux Drivers for their boards.

too many bookmarks

welp, another round of bookmark organization just came and went. my "blogging" category now fits on the screen again, thanks to the creation of 5 sub-categories (and liberal deletion of some I didn't frequent enough to validate keeping). "education" got 7 sub-categories on it, and there are still 3 items that didn't quite fit. I re-visited 15 of the sites in the "come back here" (the "I don't have the time to fully read/explore this place but it looks cool enough so I'll tag it for later filtering" category) so it's down to a nice manageable 32. the "nethack" (computing resources) category is starting to look like it could use a few more sub-categories, and "work" needs to be filtered quite a bit still as well. I also removed about 5 from the "comics" category, but it could still do with a bit more pruning (still 27 pages there).

All in all, a productive day! :)

In other news: we're doing homotopies right now in Complex, I'm so happy! Homotopies are straight out of topology, which is my speciality. For once, I'm understanding something in that class!

oh, and today marks one year of no locked posts. :)
