me sleepy long time!

Or, rather, don't I wish I could sleep a long time. guh. Last night was wonderful, unfortunately it had to come to an end.

My efforts to prolong it, though, were somewhat fruitful -- hence my only getting slightly less than 5 hours of sleep. I *so* did not want to get up when my alarm went off this morning.

I was so tired this morning, I almost left the house with my school book and binder still in my bag. heh.. It's so much lighter without all that stuff in there.

Perhaps I'll take a nap this morning. It's not like anyone's actually going to call helpline. Heck, most people are taking next monday and tuesday off, so they are collectively of the opinion that if there's something wrong with the computer, they'll just let it sit till January. And there's no way I'm going to try and persuade them otherwise. :)

damn, things sure have changed..

Okay, firebird wins. It's grown up quite a bit since I last looked at it (I first downloaded it when it was version .1, kept using it through .3, now it's at .7). The interface is *very* clean, it actually saves your preferance settings (this was an issue in .3) and shitdamn is it fast! They shrunk it also, nice to see. It's only a 9MB tarball now (used to be something like a 15MB download).

I do belive I'll be switching browsers now.

And while I'm on the topic, why'd they change the name?

They're back!

This is easilly one of the few sequels I've seen that is just as good, if not better, than the original. :)

edit: oh, and while you're there. follow the "back to the toons" link and check the two towers link for a special glimpse of a special scene that had been left out of the original movie. :)

oh dear me..

This is just plain wrong. On many different levels.

Summary: online gamer spends two years building up stuff for his online profile in the game. Online game company's servers get hacked and online gamer's "stuff" is "stolen" from his account by the hacker. Online gamer eventually winds up suing the game company for the "stuff" to be replaced, and wins.
