It’s almost 3am, and I’m back in California.

And I can’t sleep.

And I found out my car has a flat tire.

And life sux. Sigh.

Sickness sicks

My sister-in-law and nephew have been slightly sick recently, but they all have pretty good immune systems it seems.

I, on the other hand, weigh in at 135lbs and 5′ 10″ tall. I do not have a great immune system. In fact I have such a bad immune system, that I would currently lose a race to an asthmatic ant with some rather heavy shopping.

This sucks. Hopefully I’ll feel better in the morning.

My paternity leave is almost over, and I have a LOT of work to get done when I fly back to California. More on my current project later!

Powerbooks, and what happens when they stop working

It sucks, that’s what happens. It really bloody well sucks.

So here I am, 3am, reading an advisory to upgrade iTunes and Quicktime due to known vulnerabilities. I start the software update… it runs, and runs, and runs. Eventually it asks if I’d like to reboot.

I say yes, it says “Nu uh”.

Anyone want to buy a rather expensive titanium brick?

What the fuck happened in the last month?!
Everything has gone to hell. I’ve had to come back to LA twice! Not only that, but they upgraded the software on my DVR. Now it likes to enter “power saving mode” at random times. WTF?? If it misses a single recording as a result I’ll be seriously pissed off.
To top it off, EarthLink gave me a new phone/pager device, a Blackberry 7750. Nice device, but the keyboard number keys don’t have letters over them, so dialing “1-800-COMMUTE” is nearly impossible. I mean really, how fucking difficult would it have been to let you push the letters and have those translate back to numbers?!



Another busy morning. Kevinb left for his Africa Adventure today, so we’re down a man for the next month. Plus with me going to Idaho for a week people here are going to be stretched quiet thing this month.
I’m sure it’ll be over soon

I’m not looking forward to Brandy and the kids moving away, at all. In fact it’s damn depressing 🙁 I hope Joseph doesn’t forget me too quickly. That’s going to be hard.

I’m trying to spend as much time with him as I can now. I’ll just have to find some way to keep myself occupied while I’m alone. Let’s see….

  • Star Trek episodes
  • Star Gate episodes
  • Seeing everyone on the webcam (damn, I must set that up..)
  • Writing more papers
  • Working on my software
  • Working on the forum hosting
  • I need more episodes…..

That should keep me going for a while I think 🙂
