Oh yah, I took that mythic test that's popular right now and got a 4 with a firebird primary and satyr shadow. I'm not going to bother posting what they mean, since really they're only half right. Only reason I'm posting this is because it's so popular right now.

My back still hurts. A lot. I've never had this before, where it lasts for days. Usually I sleep, and that fixes everything. It's now popped several times, I've slept a lot, and it still hurts. Sigh.

I am really sorry this isn't a happy great wonderful post. I'm just not feeling up to it.

I do have class in a couple hours though, that's still going well for all who've asked. I've started on the next assignment when there's one due today (which I turned in Monday to the TA who commented, "Wow, you're a good programmer.") It's a bright spot of joy in my life, really.

I'm also really looking forward to camping this weekend, and then Origins in early July. I kinda wonder if my not getting out of town much this month will be a good or bad thing, though. I'm debating taking a trip to Philly at the end of the month to see Patrick and slog and others. That'd be nice, actually. Will see.

This is why I should never touch Windows machines.

So, I called 'rama support (aka, Aleris) and we tried fifteen zillion different settings to get the network on my XP station to work. Newp. No dice. It's somehow fubared. Like, we even reset back to a different day, I tried a static setting, turned off firewall, etc etc. Aleris told me to call Dustin tomorrow in case Dustin has any other ideas being the XP god, but it's looking more and more likely I have to reinstall the system.

I would like to point out

I HAVE HAD THIS MACHINE TWO DAYS.

I HAVE ALREADY FUCKED IT UP.

Now, if my FreeBSD machine weren't so fubared from a bad disk (I did test the network from it, btw.. the DSL itself is just fine), I'd be really amused at my Windows killing power. HOWEVER, since I don't really have time to futz with these things this week, it just means more obstacles for getting stuff done at home. Grrr.
