My left shoulder, linux firewire support, external hard drive mounting and your face

Sat Nov 01

We woke up at noon and went to the Verizon store again. Penni and i counted the number of times this annoying valley-girl-wanna-be said the word "like". We counted 15 times in less that a minute. We got groceries and a sling for my left arm. I will probably see a doctor for it Monday. I picked up my external case from Penni's parents house. I tested my new firewire card with external drive and had issue getting write rights with firewire and usb. Sadly, that functionality as been flaky for years. Improvements in the Linux kernel and the HAL application helped a lot with flash drives but external drives are still a little sucky. I even tried some terminal stuff. The whole thing is a little depressing. I bid on a ring for Penni. I watched a Halloween edition of Iron Chef were they are cooking organ meat (brains, pigs feet, kidneys, duck tongues, duck testicles, rooster combs, livers, pig blood, etc..) Awesome.

I covered the sysadmin and the STAR file were late so the translations were late again. I ate way too much Candy, plus lunch with Kursty. I have been bummed out for two days. I listened to a little of Jono Bacon's metal album, I love the guy, and it is great that I took a walk with my boss and talked objectively about the election. I rolled out an additional function to the Quality Assurance Database, adding the receivables workstation scrape to the automation. I played with a few ROMs/ZSNES Emulator and was inspired to order a Linux friend game pad.

I covered the sysadmin the STAR file were late so the translations were late. I skipped paper billing and ate lunch at my desk to make up time. I felt bad all day so i listed to a lot of Portishead. The 'Third' album is really really good. I went to practice and helped Scott hang sound dampening stuff on the walls.

Wed Oct 29

I took some flex time for breakfast-comicbook-store-lunch break. I heard on a podcast that the Linux Action Show is killing their podcast and doing a YouTube version instead. Bummer. There was a FedEx tag on the door when i got home. I drove to the Pineville FedEx and picked up the package. It was Penni's replacement phone. Scott was stuck at sister's house so we called off practice.

Tue Oct 28

My boss requested an additional index to the priorities database. ( SubPriorityNumber? SubIndexNumber? IndexSubPriority?) I Went to Penni's parents house to help her dad with a crashed XP installation. I showed him how to use his Linux laptop and a external hard drive case to backup all of the files off a crashed drive. Penni came with me to hang out, work on her knitting, and watched Freddy vs Jason with her mom. They fixed tacos for us.

Mon Oct 27

My coworker was out with PTO so i covered the support calls for the floor and the STAR balancing I had terrible stomach issue that afternoon but it leveled off around 2pm enough to take a walk. I added lot of bill code to the ncmedicaid site automation. I stayed a little late to help the new RACF employees with their new laptops. I bought pads, cookies and cranberry juice for Penni after work. I took a quick naps as soon as i got home and felt a little better afterwards. Scott visited with his old PC case and we picked out and bought the parts to upgrade to a pro tool running machine. we bought a multichannel sound card and pro tool 7. Penni gave Scott a scarf that she knitted.

Sun Oct 26

Penni and I woke up early and got breakfast at Izzy's. We took Penni's phone in to Verizon for screen repair and they order a replacement. We bought and changed out mattress allergy cover. I submitted c++ homework. My left shoulder hurts. Went to Practice and worked on a new 'legal' song intro . Yup. it's another Rita's Gift song with an intro to an intro. I called Penni on the way home and she made baked corn chips and zucchini salsa for me.

Where is that comic book store you keep talking about? The comic store in Concord sucks. I hope your arm gets to feeling better.

It is the "Heroes are not hard to find" store on 7th Street. I recommend "The Goon" it is awesome. :)

My friend and I were recently talking about how we as a society are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that discussion we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as memory gets cheaper, the possibility of uploading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.
