24601

I’ve been listening to “The Confrontation” from Les Misérables.

Listen to me! There is something I must do.
This woman leaves behind a suffering child.
There is none but me who can intercede,
In Mercy’s name, three days are all I need.
Then I’ll return, I pledge my word.
Then I’ll return…

Men like me can never change
Men like you can never change
No, 24601,
My duty’s to the law

Of all the songs, that’s one of my favorites (there are others, to be sure – this one just sticks in my mind a lot). It’s mostly the confrontation (fancy that) between their two wills. Like… they’re both right – Javert can do only what is doing, and it’s what leads to his death. “Men like me can never change.”

I wonder if the law is required to think that men can’t change? If it’s something that’s necessary for it to function? “You have no rights. Come with me 24601.

Why am I listening to this at 3:45 AM? I have no idea.

all work and no play…

So, I’ve been sitting here doing work for my networks class almost since I got up. I’m a little tired of it, but I’m making progress, so while it’s not what I’d prefer to be doing on a saturday afternoon, it’s doable.

I’m doing most of my work on my laptop, and occasionally I use my FreeBSD box to do some lookups and such.

Well, after a while the screensaver on aforementiond freebsd box kicks in (it’s set to random, so it’s always a little surprising. This time, it starts typing “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.”

Over and over again.

I think my computer is trying to tell me something.

too late? too early? too soon!

It’s really late, and what am I doing? wondering why that extra date is sitting up at the top. I have a good idea, but I that doesn’t help me with the “how to make it go away.

Well, I’m going to shower, because that will wake me up. And then I’m going to read some papers and stare at some source code. And then? I’m going to think intelligent (well, sort of) thoughts. And listen to REM. (incidentally, this is a great way to test links – I really am a tool).

Blosxom is the Futar

The blosxom configuration was ridiculously easy. Now, I just have to change DNS entries to point over here. I wanted an HTML layout that wasn’t quite as busy as the last one (what with all the “links” and “colors”). I also want to bring back cwru.vja2.net, which may happen once I find a free few hours (right…).

Damnit. Server was all happy and such, and what happens? I go to activate the packet filter, setup some rules, and lock myself out. Suck

After a bit of a hiatus, vja2.net is backup. It’s still under a bit of construction, but all old entries have been restored, the new format is in place (mostly). As before, private entries will be at livejournal, and everything else will go here!!
