I saw a player-piano.

At the wegmans in Canandaigua. Their little cafe has
a player-piano that runs off of cds and it has a wine bar.
I'm not sure exactly why I was at that particular wegmans
at 1am last night, but I'm not going to question that stuff

"In 2001, Google bought the Usenet discussion forums."

Nooooooo. It's bad enough having actual journalism contain
the word "blog". Must stop twitching.

Not A Sausage

Hopefully this will be the last time skirt will crash for a while.
The previous most-annoying-outage, also due to hardware
failure was when the "trap domain" got hit by Fark, at which
point I discovered that /usr/local was on a very unhappy
hard disk. Spliced in a new power supply fan that actually
sounds nice, and then got to find a dead swap drive.

Questions I should not have to ask:
Why are you playing cellphone games on the shitter?
"If I had a pda I'd use it to play more complex games on the shitter."
Thank you Jon Heise.

skirt's powersupply fan went flaky today, took it apart and whacked
on it, and it decided to magically work again.

hell frozen over

They plowed the street that I live on the same day that
it snowed. Maybe 4+inches on the road was enough
for the plow contractors to start working overtime?

I hate snow. Somehow or other I lost my hat while
it was in my car, and while looking for it, found a
pair of gloves. Still can't find the hat.

Persephone's Bees, catchy stuff, wish there was more
of it out there.

It's been cold, I still have a dead pc so I've had to go
back to using my laptop all day. Valentine's day
was a meeting of the Bitter Alcoholics Club at several
Rochester bars that night. Lux was kinda neat, they had
heart stickers and sharpies close to the door for anyone
that wanted to make valentines. (And for the second
night in a row, I walked from near The Old Toad to Marks'
because we were all too stupid to drive.)

It looks presentable now, I've still got to hack around a
little to make it tolerable in Netscape, but it'll do. Now to
convert a couple of years of livejournal entries so that I
don't have to rely on their shit.

Alcohol. Yeah.

Very, very bad day, most of it unrelated to valentines' at all.

Reasons to not like the three posts and other
related bullshit; I prefer short coherent
single topic posts to long multi-topic ones.

For some reason right now I want to play Elvira.

Bought a car to replace the accord. It's a '92
civic si, 5-speed manual, black hatchback.
Lately has been adventures in learning stick.

Mom is sending me a king cake, it should be
here on friday, comment if you want any of it.

Have to make sure RIT pays me tomorrow, and
managed to get my tax refund already, thanks
to the power of the IntarWeb.

Other than that? Depressed and bummed out
for all sorts of reasons. I need people to
get drunk with on Valentines' Day.

night. Somehow or other that's the only bit I
remember out of the dream.

I need a drink...

Temporarily fixed my glasses so that I can see
more than a foot in front of me, and I'm very
very sore from yesterday's situation, not to
mention incredibly annoyed at not having a car.

Susie killed my pc last night while I was
out finding something to eat, she knocked it over
trying to get something behind it, while the
processors came unseated and one of the heatsinks
fell off. It doesn't POST.

(mind you, it doesn't -do- anything besides sit
around and burn music cds for me, but now I get
to dread the thought of burning audio in cdrecord.)
