Hmmmm, jlf told me to upgrade myself to "contributer" for DHCPreg, since he used a couple snippits of code I sent him. Right on.

Things have been mighty weird in my life recently. jjw was actually commenting on it. He said something to the effect of "Weird stuff happens to everyone. But weirder stuff seems to happen to you more often." I know. I hate it.

I think I brought it on myself when I was younger. I read a line from a Douglas Adams book... something like this "Something really deeply strange is going on here, and if something strange is happening, I want it to be happening to me". I kinda took it to heart, and now life is giving it to me in spades. I just wish it were more pleasant.

Bought a CD burner the other night. Getting it working is proving to be fun. That's fun in the "man I wish it would just freakin' _work_!!" sense.

Put in a few perl hours yesterday. Might have some more goodies for jlf soon.

Update, post lunch, (where I was accosted by political savages, ran into my ex girlfriend, and I once again got the world's worst service at Arby's) :
Dear Republican and Democrat (and I guess everyone else) bastards... go fuck yourselves. LEAVE ME ALONE!!! Don't fucking talk politics to me, EVER! I hate it. You're all so full of yourselves, and so damn sure yer right about everything, and so sure that what anyone else thinks is wrong... well you've had a couple hundred years to work on these problems, and it seems obvious to me that you aren't making any headway and in many ways, we're all a lot worse off today.... SO SHUT UP ALREADY!! And I'm not talking about the politicians themselves here (they're pretty easy to ignore as a whole, and they pretty much all say and do the same things anyway), but rather their rabid asshole groupies out on the street.

Everyone claims to want to save the damn world... but none of you will shut up long enough to realize maybe we shouldn't save it!! You're too busy beating the hell out of my personal freedoms by telling me what I ought to think to actually realize that YOU are the only thing I need to be saved from.

Some people think I'm joking when I say I'm looking forward to us all gettting squished by a giant space rock... I'M NOT JOKING! I can't wait!! C'mon space rock!!!!
