Its time for Perfectoin Dec. 10th, 2008 @ 12:30 am
Today I discovered that the United States postal service will not forward credit cards. This is a good idea, but I didn't know it, so that's causing me problems now. So its Christmas time, except not. I don't feel the holiday cheer this year. Maybe its the recession. Maybe the recession is just a scapegoat for everything right now. I was supposed to have a productive day today, and didn't get half my todo list done. I'm sure that if the economy were strong I would have gotten everything done (yeah right).

I've got exams coming up, today was reading day - or a day with no classes; exams start tomorrow. I've got Biology tomorrow, but its at noon so I've got time to study before. Recently I've found myself to be very apathetic towards most of my classes. Perhaps its that "senioritis". I need to cut that shit out next semester, but its always worse in the Spring. Hope to change that this year.

Preserve Wildlife! Throw a party today! Dec. 8th, 2008 @ 01:21 am
Today Meg and I went to the gym after we discovered that we wouldn't be gaming with friends today - we also got groceries and lots of meat.

I spent the rest of the day working on an older project that I started almost a year ago. After realizing that it just doesn't compile with the newer GCC (that was rather irrating to make changes and all of a sudden it doesn't work, but should) AND getting it to (kind of) work with autotools, I set off to do the real work - rewrite data sources into XML from the stupid dinky format that was earlier.

I thought XML was supposed to make things easier. Then again, I thought C++ was supposed to do the same thing. Actually libxml++ isn't that bad, I think its just more a matter of I don't know what I'm doing so I get all these extra results to parse through. Also, there wasn't too much documentation to find on the website or on the web. Surely there's a way to say "return all subchildren of this node WITH A MAX DEPTH OF ONE". Anyway, I ended the day with fewer features than when I started with, but the rest should be easy to insert now. Perhaps if all goes according to plan I'll code drop in a month or two.

This makes two days in a row that I've done something productive.

If all goes according acording to plan, then you should be reading this post of livejournal, even though I've typed it on my new Wordpress blog, located here. I'm actually using wordpress to manage all of my website as I'm not an artist and have poor design skills (mighmos.org actually redirects you to the blog now).

But we mustn't regulate [the bankers], because then we run the risk of driving them out of the country. Maybe this argument will catch on during burglaries. If the thief is caught running out of the house with the jewelry, he'll say: "Don't try and stop me, or you might frighten me off, and I'll leave the house altogether." Then the family will discuss the matter, saying: "Hmm, he's got a point," and instead warn the burglar that if he keeps doing it, he'll be a fool to himself, as there'll be nothing left to rob.

My take on Clinton Sep. 29th, 2008 @ 09:37 pm
Of course the latter would be showing ads on improving the bike in a
static but now since I love; EABI ARM bpt and properly bound copies of
course the power switch was a readable feed of a neat MAME I can use at
least livejournal will remain static but I'll probably make a bit on a
bit on after a programming project now violating their principles after
it is the least; livejournal.

Sometimes all you want is a steak breakfast. Sometimes, you have to get it at 3:00 in the morning. As well as: a bowl of soup, some hashbrowns, a biscut, two eggs, and two chillidogs. I'm full now.

Some stuff Sep. 12th, 2008 @ 07:39 pm
Classes were boring. Zach is over. We're going to play 90s arcade games.

Ugh. I broke the first rule of hunting. I spilled my beer. I wasn't really hunting at the time, but unfortunately the beer landed on Das Keyboard. Its had a cycle through the dishwasher as I've heard to do once it started spazzing out, so I'm using a `regular' keyboard for the time being.

Classes don't seem as interesting as I thought they would be, and I'll have to learn Java (again), but at least my schedule isn't bad.

Finally figured out how to get Vista to boot with AHCI (SATA) drives. Turns out that Vista will disable drivers that aren't in use at every boot. Problem: what if we'll need those drivers to boot later? The fix involved navigating regedit. I'm still trying to figure out why Alienware shipped them set to IDE mode by default.
