The sparsest month

### I moved half my stuff upstairs into my brother's (now) unused room. We're getting some guy my dad knows to do the repairs cheap, but who knows when he'll be here? So I'm living upstairs now. If I thought the air conditioning was inadequate downstairs... well I was wrong. I've been up here for about 3 days, and it hasn't been comfortable yet. atlas can really heat up a room. I've kept parabellum off, but I'm going to be building another computer up here in a few days. Gonna be hot :P

### Today (Monday) was my youngest brother's first day of high school. Not envious.

### Oh, and moving all that furniture around somehow got me my programming groove back. blocklist.org was going through some big changes a few days ago, and the lists became incompatible with the Linux version of PeerGuardian. I reversed (using the term loosely, it was really easy :P) the new list format, and wrote a loader for it.

Hey, it was good for the 60 or so people that needed it until they restored the old functionality recently, and it was a decent reminder that I still know what I'm doing despite doing nothing but watching Star Trek and going over stupid business stuff these last few weeks.

%%# I don't see how one could live in a marginalized platform without being able to make repairs when you are forgotten.

The third floor of my new house is pretty warm as well. The AC just doesn't come out as strongly up here. Luckily I have a cieling fan so it cuts down on the heat a bit. Still I'll be happy to see fall and winter come.

Did you ever settle on a box for the new comp?

BTW the new comp should be called Hades ;-).

Yeah, I upgraded to this beast because I liked its "cooling solution". I also upgraded to a 3GHz pentium for like $3 extra because newegg was having a fire sale! labor day sale.

I was actually leaning towards the futurama naming scheme, since I don't consider it a PC worth taking with me. Hades is good, but I'm thinking dolomite (or is that dolemite?)

heh I'm pretty sure its dolomite.

But if you want to keep the futurama naming scheme then I say go with Amy. See both the comp and the character are pretty but utterly useless ;-). If the case was green then you'd have to go with Kif.

Also, Amy is useful! She has the professor's blood type.

Hmmm hedonismbot is pretty darn good and I suppose "The Greeting Card" would violate some naming rules ;-). Warm as pastrami?
