So, Jim is evil. EVIL I say. He got me hooked on emulators. Like, I’m all rolling with the Sega Genesis, and the Nintendo Entertainment System. I’m getting my Megaman & Megaman 2 on! I’m ripping shit up in Castlevania. I administered brutal beatdowns in Streets of Rage and Spiderman (before dying – man, it’s been a while. I’m rusty). Even better, I went and downloaded Shining Force and showed the Runefaust baddies what a real armchair general can do.

Right. Anyway. Emulators: Good. car: good. Life: not bad. It’s looking less likely that I’ll be able to go see Concrete Blonde play, as I won’t even be able to pick up the moving van ’til 3, which doesn’t leave me much time to move my furniture even assuming I get everything else moved.

In an e-mail I sent today:

But on the plus side, I’m going to go buy a bed today
(a Queen size – it’s only $30 more than the Queen!).

that’s completely not what I meant to say.

🙂

I have my car. It is hot. I am about to post pictures. I am so unbelievably happy. The car rules. And then some!

Jetta from the Front Jetta from the Back
Jetta from the Side Jetta's Key!!

Enjoy!! 🙂

Canucks, Gnome, telephones

We bombed Canadians.

Recall Magician: Apprentice, “Among man’s strange undertakings, war stood clearly forth as the strangest.”

I’m all about posting random little tidbits all of a sudden. Like, I went to high school with a girl who was a grip for a movie called Rose’s. I just think it’s cool that I know someone in the IMDb.

I’m trying to compile Gnome on Cygwin. It’s not easy. There’s a network mapping tool called Nomad, but it requires the Gnome libraries to work, and that’s the main thing I’m having trouble installing. Yay.

I grabbed a cup of coffee yesterday with Melinda. That was fun. Yay good company. And I got to talk to Christen and Dave! And Kiran! I spent a lot of time on the phone.

LJ‘s pretty cool, but I kinda want my own site back. I’m uber-interested in doing a nice clean php system with a db backend. That, and I’ve started doing a little research into importing PHP-Nuke data into a slashcode db.

Right.

Shoot me now. Twice, for good measure.

Hopefully, I’ll have cwru.vja2.net up and running in a week or two. I think it’ll be running on Slashcode (the same software slashdot uses. It will also have a dedicated server.

Chances are good that I’ll also take the quoteWiki (a.k.a. qWiki) down as well. There’ll still be a quotes page, but all entries will have to be submitted and then posted by moi. That kinda sucks, as “qWiki” was a nifty name (if I do say so myself).
