Hey look, I'm 26 now!
I spent my birthday rummaging through the utility closet for LAN cables, and looking up motherboard diagrams online via a cd-bootable Linux that didn't have proper support for my video card (as in, everything came out in inverted 16-bit mode ><)

And what have I learned recently? Oh yes, I've learned that an ethernet card dying can really fuck up a lot of things. One CMOS reset and two System Restores later, I think I'm back online, albeit with a wireless NIC I found in the utility closet, and a borrowed wireless router... But I'm not sure the setup I have here is stable just yet. I don't trust it.

I think I'll be backing up everything I need and reinstalling Windows on both of these computers. Unless anyone knows where I can get a version of Mac OSX that will work on a 800MHz Pentium III with 256MB RAM(in which case the second computer gets something different. But I won't be holding my breath for that).

Apart from that, I just got a half-assed promotion at work, into a provisional department with a provisional job description. As in, there's no raise involved because the department doesn't actually exist yet, and the guidelines for what we're actually supposed to do change almost daily. It's actually kinda fun, believe it or not. It involves a lot of walking around, though, so I had to buy some new shoes. Or rather, ask for money for shoes for my birthday.

Oh, and I got my car back today. I know I didn't mention it here, but about a month ago my right taillight had a bit of a run-in with someone else's bumper. So now I owe my mom the $500 insurance deductible...

I know it's a bit scattered, and I haven't been around much lately, but hopefully that will change soon. I absolutely have to finish that sweater I was working on...

Happy Birthday!

And congrats on the promotion, half-arsed or not.

So, travelling any time soon? ;-)
