Warcraft III on hard difficulty is annoying. I've been halfway through the human campaign all day, it seems. Really grinding my teeth. I think I need to admit that I suck at this game :P I need to get a NIC so I can play it on the internet. Paul said he'd lend me one on tuesday.

I briefly entertained the idea of bridging my windows box onto the network by serial cable. But I didn't bring one. Or a parallel cable. I do have USB, but that's unfamiliar territory.

Putting yesterday's Conan on Comedy Central was a really good move for CC. I'm rarely awake late enough to watch it on NBC, and the show is really funny. I wonder what NBC gets out of the deal, though, since I'm not watching them anymore. Money, I guess.

linux supports usb to usb networking, and you should be able to nat it
of course, that hinges on your having the special A to A cable with the logic in the middle

Conan - I agree, I haven't watched this much Conan in years. Not since I worked retail, and I didn't have to be at work until 10:00. Ah, the memories - staying up late, hacking the 'net on my NEC laptop and my dad's old Mac II. . . .

Bad side - no more Daily Show at 7:00; it's on at 5:30 instead, when I'm usually on the way home from work. Argh.

P.S. - I have a spare NIC for ya - next time you're in Seattle, just swing by and it's yours. :-)

I'd like to know more about you. More of that deep emotional river that runs through you. Things that make you happy. Things that make you sad. Turn ons. Turn offs. Let me in =)

I don't think I've ever let anybody in. It's kinda tricky to talk to people about what I want, because I have no idea. Or, I have two ideas that conflict with each other (I want people to like me, and I want to be alone all the time): the things that make me happy are the same things that make me sad. In the past, it seemed much more clear; I think that I'm doing Something Kevin Vance Would Not Do. Last year or two, I realize that I have nothing with which to define myself. A few projects that a few people will see, some crappy music I wrote aeons ago, a handful of people I don't keep in touch with.

The one thing I can think of that I consistently enjoy is working on spacegame: I write the rules, I create the world, I am a god unto those sprites and motion vectors. I just like making things, I guess.
