It’s 6:30pm, and keen will be here in a few minutes to start our trip to Defcon 13! Check here for updates. [b]Update[/b] – Well we made it back to town safe and sound, with no arrests, no pullovers, no issues at all in over 1600 miles and 4 days of debauchery. I’ll follow up tomorrow sometime with all the photos and a documentary! [b]Update #2[/b] – I lied! I won’t be updating until Wednesday, because it’s 11:25pm on Tuesday and I’m damn tired.
OK so here is another post. This week has been hit or miss, but some cool shit is on the horizon. I went to dinner with my ‘rents at the Iron Springs Chateau in Manitou Springs and had a helluva time. The food was pretty good (family style), but it wasn’t the main course; the vaudeville-esque show was absolutely incredible and extremely well done. It was followed up with an olio-style affair of skits, which was also a really good time. I thought it would be kind of lame, but the actors recognize that it’s corny as hell and go out of their way to make sure everybody is laughing it up. Thanks mom & dad! I had some network maintenance the other night. It was rough, and eventually had to execute a backout strategy. When you do maintenance, things never work -exactly- as planned, you have to adapt as things crop up. Unfortunately, when things are not going as planned in the 8+ page network maintenance packet, I get frustrated and lose the ability to crate insightful resolutions to newfound issues. Such was the case the other day. Eventually 1:50am came around and we had to pull out for fear of running through our window. After a restless 3 1/2 hours of sleep, it hit me that I made glaring oversights with regard to VLAN databases … made the whole thing not work. Couldn’t see it then, but saw it very clearly afterwards. Didn’t even have to google it, just knew what the issue was. D’oh. I’m sorry to let you guys down, but I’m not God :-/ Keen and I are going to [L=http://www.defcon.org]Defcon 2005[/L]. We decided this while we were out yesterday. We’re driving outta here on Thursday night, making it there Friday a little before noon. From there, wild partying will commence. We’ll be heading out on Monday morningish to make it back for work on Tuesday. Paulie, Keen and I decided we’re going on a cruise for xmas/new years. We’re looking at flying down to Florida on the 24th or 25th, hanging out with Paulie & Keen’s folks (they’re all in FL), going to Disney World, partying, then departing on the 29th or 30th for the Bahamas / West Caribbean. We’ll be partying hard and spending NYE2k6 on the water in the middle of the ocean. Fuck yea. I think we’ll be able to get some pro discounts if we can get more peeps to come, so lemme know if you’re 21+, interested in partying/drinking/sexing for a week and have about a thousand bucks. Fuck yea!
I know it’s been a while since I last posted, but a lot of neat stuff has been going on, and updating this ol’ piece of the interweb isn’t really high on my priority list. Speaking of priorities and lists, I love lists. I make a list and then feel really good as I go through and just wreck all the tasks. Yea. Yay for accomplishing things? Whoop, gotta pay the cell phone bill. brb. OK Done. Ok so cool things. I’ve played a lot of Battlefield 2. It’s an incredible game. Seriously, go buy it now and start playing. Don’t call me when you can’t get the needle out of your arm though … I can’t budge mine :-/ I turned 23 yesterday! Keen, Amanda and I met up with Steve-o, his brother and Danny at the Renaissance Festival and helluva time. I haven’t been in a couple years, and it was great to enjoy it again. I got sunburned like a motherfucker, though, and it still hurts. And the photos look terrible because of it. Regardless, that was really fun. We all took a break at home, then piled on up to Denver for a night on the town. We went for a nice dinner at The Wynkoop (where we met up with Craigalito and his g/f, Rachel), then headed over to SingSing, a piano bar. SingSing was ridiculously fun. I got hammered of course, but also had a super-great time. Many thanks to Keen, Steve, Craig, Shawn, Paulie, Rachel and Amanda for making my 23rd one to remember! Obligatory Pictures! [L=http://rand0m.org/gallery.php?gid=18]http://rand0m.org/gallery.php?gid=18[/L] I told Steve that I’d update with stuff more often, so I think I’ll do just that. I’ll try not to bore you guys with drivel, though, so it’s going to be tough to think of interesting & cool things to write about — but I’ll pull through! ‘night
