Whoopee. I'm addicted to Archmage again.hacking and/or cracking
know how it started... someone posted a link.. I remembered
playing the first time, and how good it felt... and before I
knew what was going on, I had created a character and had
already started beating the snot out of someone.
I'll see y'all in 48 hours.
saw an ad for "Swordfish" today. Finally a movie got the
"The best crackers in the world
can do this in sixty minutes"... halleleujah.
getting back to hacking... what hacking? Absolutely
nothing's going on.
Possible places I could work: keyboards
Gateway Country. Fairly convenient location... haven't been
- Computer Renaissance. Same, and same.
- One of the myriad computer stores my dad is convinced
exist in this area. Trust me. I've looked. There are very
few computer stores around here, and those are mom-and-pop
stores, or a guy running a business from his garage.
Some random grocery/hardware store. Tolerable, but not my
I hope I'm forgetting about some. I'd
really like a job working with computers.
I miss my PS/2
clickety-clack keyboard. It's hooked up to my firewall
right now, so it's not really gone, just not accessible.small metal discs
wonder if PS/2 keyboards are hotswappable.
sat down and counted out all the change I've been
collecting. It came out to about $47, with $17 of that in
and related activities
There was a study a number of years ago that
claimed the average family has $20 in pennies. It's
surprising, though, how small $20 is, and how heavy. Copper
is more dense than one tends to realize.
disappointed in the "golden dollar" the US Gummint has been
pushing recently. First, IMNSHO, it should have a
president, or a Founding Father, on the face. Second, it's
too small and hard to distinguish from a quarter. Third,
the golden plating wears off fast.
Supposedly, the Polk County
LUG is talking with Polk Community College,
trying to arrange a Linux course. I hope it goes through.
I hope I can test out of it, since I probably have more
Linux experience than any professor they could arrange to
teach it, unless they can bring in a LUG member to teach.
I've already insulted one of the "computer science"
professors by showing him how little he knows. (Read my
first few posts to hear me rant.)fud, fud, and
Spanish is going fairly
well. Aprendí mucho en esa clase. Me gusta
I'm still working on the webpage for the
International Circle. I have one question, though... in a
"club roster" page, what's a reasonable size for a
portrait? I have them set at 144x192, but that seems kinda
large. However, 72x96 looked too small.
forgotten that I have piano class. Once a week is already
too long, and skipping a week makes it even stranger. (No,
I didn't cut class. The professor had a prior engagement,
so she couldn't be there.)

your software open source." -- Steve Ballmer
I think we've
reached a milestone here. Microsoft has failed to stop us
with mere "twisting" of the truth, and must now resort to
outright lies. We have them running scared.
edited when I realized I had used a feminine
demonstrative adjective with a masculine noun.
edited again when I realized I had the movie quote wrong.
