I hate computers, and me because I am dumb, long day…

So today has just been a splendid day. I mean I started off waking up late then going to work of course. Work wasn’t terrible today, I solved a problem that boss wasn’t able to solve. Definitly reduces lots of problems we have been having. But then I went to check to see if this stuff I have been working on would work in Netscap 4.7, and walla it didn’t. But before my hard drive failed last week, it was working in Netscape. And I swear the code is the same. Well then I showed it to the boss, and he was happy and so was I, but then this Netscape issue. So by friday morning at 10am, I have to have the netscape problem fixed along with several other upgrades and bug fixes. I don’t think that is going to happen. But we’ll see. Then to top the night off even more, I have just managed to kill my two best computers. My Athlon XP 1800 and Athlon 1.2GHz processrs are soon to be burried. I fried the 1800 tonight, I actually got to see the smoke of the 1800, that was a lot of fun (where fun = me crying my eyes out). So I will buy at least one processor tomorrow to get a machine working. After all of the misfortuns of the night I splurged and had a code red mountain dew. Now I am going to get to bed so I can get this project done by 10Am tomm. Goodnight

Running a little behind

So, I haven’t put up a Blog in a few days. Well this weekend wasn’t bad at all, my parents and grandparents came up on Saturday. That was a fair amout of fun, I gave them a tour of the University and Charlottesville. All day tour, of the Rotunda, Lawn, E-School, the Corner, and the Downtown Mall finished up with dinner at Star Hill. It was a fun time. Sunday was relaxing. I took it easy, and my first meal in this great slow-cooker (crock-pot). Yea I feel like I’m an old fogie cooking in this thing. But the food turned out not too bad, and lasted until today. Plus just cut it on and come back in 8 hours and it is done, not too hard to do. I guess when you get old you have to keep things simple, so the slow-cooker is the way too go. Plus you can’t move around to fast, so I think 8 hours is plenty of time no matter how slow you go. Also, conviently my linux computer’s processor decieded to die on sunday as well. Good thing I don’t back anything up. Pretty scary. Luckily I pulled the HDD and put it in some 266mhz computer and it worked. I’m using it now, and still haven’t backed anything up. I guess I never learn, I even bought a Tape drive and all. I am going to bed now, I’ll let you know about my work-week tomm, there is the weekend for you.

A day of Vacation

So, I took today off from work. Pretty nice, slept in until around 9AM. Then I did the usual morning stuff; shower, shave, brush, and the like. Packed up the laptop burning everything I needed for web development and testing onto a cd, then went over to Jennifer’s apt. Breakfast was some pancakes and potatoes cooked by Jennifer. So no fat or calores and they weren’t that bad, even with sugarless syrup. The ride to Kings Dominion consisted of me setting up web and DB server on the laptop and updating my site a little. At Kings Dominion, we were able to ride every Roller Coster there which was pretty cool. The new one was about 10second long and 40 min wait. But was pretty cool 0-70 mph in 2 seconds I think, pretty fun start. Me and Jennifer played around on the rest of the rides, did the food thing and then back home. Goodnight.

Trying this Blog thing

So here is the first blog. Little updates as to what is happening. I guess I just write about today or something. Today I went to work as usual and did pretty much nothing as usual. Govt jobs pay you to do nothing, it really sux. So after a lot of doing nothing, I went to a meeting with UVA ECE dept about the website I am reworking for them. Went back to work after that, came home, went for a run, ate some food, and now I am here programming. I have come to the conclusion my boss doesn’t like me. Whenever I propose a good idea that works, he has to look into EVERY possible other way of doing it. And then I have to prove to him and that all of his ideas are wrong and dumb and that there was nothing wrong with mine in the first place. I guess he doesn’t like to know that a 20 year old kid is smarter than the 45 year old guy he is; I don’t know. Shower and then to bed. FACE
