Yep, the Zoyx Attorney / Physician / Career Counselor / Relationship Mediator is moving to Florida. Did she consult with me? Of course not. What about me? What about my needs! My life is so fucked now because of this.
Her current employer is going to let her telecommute from Florida. She received her new Dell laptop today. Apparently it does have a googal-phonic hyper-drive, which is essential for telecommuting such a great distance. I asked if it had a retina scanner for security. According to the Zoyx attorney, it has a rectum scanner. This begs the questions, do you have to “drop trou” in order to gain access to your computer? What if you are “soiled” at the time of scanning? Therefore will you need to use a bidet to ensure a clean rectal profile? Good computer security does require some inconvenience, but this seems a little excessive. I’m not so sure this is a good idea. This may require a “re-imagination”.
After completing a do-it-yourself project, most people gloat with pride. I, meanwhile, feel great shame. I buried some drain pipe in front of the house, then raised the grade. I feel like I did something wrong. Plus it looks like shit. What I feel I did wrong is that I was supposed to take plastic from the wall, then stretch it under the drain pipe. I didn’t put any plastic down.
The thumb picture included with this post is a before picture. Where the shovel is, is probably where the water was getting in… that low spot there. The slope was toward the house in that location.
What I am going to do is bring in a landscaping contractor, and get his opinion. I really want to do a rework of the whole thing, not just do this patchwork job.
Back to My Addiction
I made an attempt at a romantic life a couple weeks back. Failed. The fling with this wonderful female was fun until the 2×4 plank of rejection planted itself in my face. So what do geeks like me do in situations like this? Go back to their ten foot by ten foot hut and finish composing their manifesto… or play with their computers… one of the two.
The ET:Quake Wars demo is out. So I have been playing this game a little bit. Also trying to figure out how to run a Quake Wars server. The server for this demo did come with linux binaries. So I downloaded and installed the demo’s server binaries onto my Ubuntu Linux computer. After about an hour and a half of swearing (damn touretes syndrome), I got the server up and running so I could join the game. No, I don’t plan on running a public server. This was just a little exercise to get me used to working with a debian based linux distro.
Oh yeah, the game is kinda fun to.
