Where I don't care what others think

Roomba, HD, HP, Hello

July 17th, 2007 Posted in Life

Wow, its been 13 days without a post. I don’t know what got into me. I’ve been busy in the past 2 weeks, I “automated” cognos to the best of my ability so generating cool looking html reports is pretty easy to do and requires 0 knowledge of javascript. During the project I learned a lot about AJAX, and I’m slightly more comfortable with it. Note how I said slightly. I might be able to take on Digital Signage soon now that I have some skillz.

Let me think, what else.. my primary job has become my secondary job, and my tertiary (third?) job is now to find Jason Bourne, who I saw in a trailer Saturday night while watching Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I really enjoyed it, even though I was in the up close section and I had to have my head at a 30 degree angle up to watch, no biggy. I’m rather excited for the next Harry Potter book to come out on Friday, time to emplore some speed reading skills. Actually, its out on the torrents already in case you’re looking. But I wouldn’t, I think books are worth the paper. (The new HP is like 100% recycled). My humble predictions, Dumbledore might not be dead, and Voldermort will be dead. As for Harry, I dunno.

Lets see, what else is new. Katie has 2 electric scooters that I want to fix up so we can ride them and save gas, I’ve never had an electric scooter and they look cool! (Segaway please). She also has this paper camera that we must build sometime, I like paper and am not half bad with it; I can make a pretty decent airplane. Cool stuff I can’t wait to do!

So I finally acquired a 500gb external HD, as in under 15 mins ago. I’ve been looking at it for a few months, the prices were cheep (100$ + 20$ for the case) so I moved on it, I added in a car charger for my cell phone. Its the same model as my current one, I’m hoping I can chain them with the firewire.

I also just bought a Roomba, some refurbished one off Amazon. It cost me about $50, which isn’t bad. I had to spend >100$ I’d collected in coins then turned into gift cards because it was going to expire, and I said hey.. why not spend it on a replacement for my mom! While some people say they don’t play nice on high carpet, I look forward to testing it out. Robots are cool, and household ones are something I like. I can’t wait until cars drive themselves. Why? If you think you can go fast now, just imagine a computer driving you down the highway in sync with all the other cars, no more traffic, etc. While I haven’t done any math or actual thinking, I would bet speeds >100mph wouldn’t be impossible in the ideal situation.. its a computer for petes sake!

I don’t know who my roomate is going to be next year, nor do I have my room number readily available. 4th floor, BARH. If you’re my roommate I would greatly appreciate it if you suddenly found somewhere else to live, even though I haven’t met you yet. Don’t take it personal, I’m just strange.

Ah ha, another Cpanel error, time to open a support ticket!

Goodnight moon.
