I noticed that in AIM v4.8.2790, if you add a buddy to your buddylist and the last character is a dot ( . ), the new buddy will be added to your list, but when you click on the normal “Online” tab and then click back on “List Setup” tab, your new buddy will magically be gone. I found this out because I read off of krempley’s site that he has a roomy who has aim, and he appended a dot onto the guys name when he typed it in. It’s probably a conspiracy. Or just a bug. Or No? Truck is busticated. Rebuilding carb when I get back on Sunday night … then selling it and A) Getting out of debt? or B) buying a motorcycle. because they’re cheap. or C) Holding out and trying to find a buildable mustang. Yes, I can still dream, thank you very much. I’m heading out of town on Thursday night / Friday morning to attend the funeral of my Uncle Eldred — takes place on Saturday morning. He passed away because a recessive tumor became malignant and progressed to full blown, widespread cancer. He was my mother’s oldest sibling, and the patriarch of the Mettmann family. He will be sorely missed. 🙁
I decided I was going to work on my vbscripting & asp skills for a while, and I figured what better place to start than rand0m.org? So I drudged up my old ASP version of the site and resurrected it — amazingly, it actually works sorta … the smileys work, but links don’t because I’m too lazy to spend an hour writing regexs. Check it out: [L=http://asp.rand0m.org]http://asp.rand0m.org[/L] Other than that, I think we’re going to open up a gaming cafe … Corey is all hot and bothered about it, which is neat … it’s not very often the HPI offices get excited about anything. *sigh* Work is still going well, but I am beginning to sense a death spiral again, which is no good. I guess that after two years, it’s time to dust off my resume, eh? [b]Update[/b] – 11:44pm [L=http://bbspot.com/News/2003/01/os_quiz.php]
Which OS are You?[/L] *sigh* So true *sigh*
Well, today was Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. What a good guy. He did so much. I think we should have more people like him. I worked on my truck a bit today, and determined that it is not my timing, nor my vacuum system, nor my vacuum-timing advance system. This pretty much narrows it down to carbuerator … I think I’ll meander it on down to one of the local auto places and have them take a look, because I’ve done run out of ideers. Went shopping today with Tony. Actually, it was more of a “get necessities from the store because i have no car” trip. Got a lot of stuff, and decided to make tacos. Mmm, tacos. While dicing up the green bell peppers and onions, I took a hearty chunk of my left index finger off. Blood was going everywhere … pretty nasty, ruined all the veggies. I can see you now, and no, not really. I just whacked off a peice of my finger … it didn’t even go all the way through, so I had this little chunk of randal finger flopping about. I didn’t even notice until I wiped my lip with my finger and felt a little dangly thing. Then I went into the kitchen and really chopped it off. heh. If I get the initiative, I’ll take a pic of my not-life-threatining wound. Having a potential spat at work … it’s my day off, and I get a phone call asking for personal assistance from someone i work with. Well … I told them that I couldn’t fix it, because our stuff sucks. Apparently that has gone over poorly, and after being told to “re-think the question and fix the problem” (on my day off), I wrote a nice little email that will undoubtedly not go over well. Maybe it’s come to jesus time? who knows.

We threw a big New Years Eve bash last night, and it was really good. Not a lot was happening until a bit after 10:30pm, when a handful of people showed up, including Bryce aka YTC and his wife Joleene and their crew. They brought a ton of stereo equipment and some hugeass speakers and really turned the party up. Bryce is a simply amazing DJ, and really knew how to spin it right — thanks for doin it, ytc! Around 11:30, a truckload of people showed up, including Dan Sandersly, Steve Strecker and Lindsey Burton from back in the day. The usual assortment of people started off the party, Tore, Laura, Paulie, Keen, Tony, Disco, Christine … it got pretty wild, and I got super trashed. At midnight, everybody raised their champaigne glasses and enjoyed a nice countdown. All in all, I’d say it was a really good party. Thanks to everybody who came for making it such a good throwdown.
