tired [Oct. 6th, 2000|10:12 am]

[Tags|]

couldn't fall asleep last night, so I ended up getting but 5 hours of rest. super exhausted today. hard to stay awake in classes.

no DSL service at home still. I guess Covad DSL cancelled our USWest DSL service, even though we already cancelled our Covad order before US West even hooked us up. Stupid Covad. I emailed them and complained.

Yesterday I went on a huge bike ride... I was going to post a map of my route, but I have no time. Class in 15 minutes.

I still have homework to do that's due in a few hours. Bleh.

I always think of interesting things to post on LiveJournal when I'm not on a computer. I wish I could call a LiveJournal operator 800-number from my cellphone and tell him/her my username, a pass-phrase (like a password, but without spelling out the capitals, digits, and punctionation... like: "smelly cheese is often green") and then say what I want posted. Yesterday on my bike ride I kept going uphill as far as I could and got totally lost in some parts of Seattle I'd never been to... I had all these cool ideas and wanted to share them, but forgot them all once I got back home. *sigh* when livejournal has more money, we definitely need operators. oh yes. perhaps you don't even talk to a human ... both because that'd be technically difficult and uncomfortable for some... perhaps you talk to a answering machine and then the computer dispatches a sound file off to an available on-call "operator". i should look into the price of an 800 number.

anyway, off to class. i'll do db homework in lingustics class to keep me awake. (not that linguistics is boring --- I'm just dead tired today)

linguistics and operator

would you recommend taking Linguistics as an elective?

and hey, I'd volunteer to be an operator. I like typing :) I can imagine the graveyard shift and posting someone's entry at 3am, hehe..

Re: linguistics and operator

Linguistics is fun... I recommend it.

As for being an operator... I'll let you know if and when I get things setup. :)

This is why I take a pen and notepad everywhere I go.

I was thinking it would be cool to have an email address you could send entries to from a WAP phone or palm pilot and have them show up on your LJ.

Why pay for an 800 number? Get volunteers from all over the US (hell, the world) to volunteer to do it out of their homes for nothin. ;)

And you know, I have been poking around the past couple weeks trying to figure out how hard it would be to design a Palm Pilot application... you guessed it, for live journal...

Jeesh, checking out your bio page, I forgot how young you are! (you little angel)

And I've got a handful of sketches done for mood icons, but I'm having a hell of a time working on it cause I've been working hellacious hours and I have two kidlets under the age of two... but you can check out the test runs and people's thoughts of them in my journal here... - bourbonstreet (http://www.livejournal.com/users/bourbonstreet)

Palm XII

You say you have no computer to post to livejurnal, but didn't you have a Palm XII that had a client on it?

Re: Palm XII

VII (7), not XII (12).

But, yeah.

An 800 number would be cooler, though. I always carry my phone around... I don't always carry my Palm.

Re: Palm VII

Sorry, can't type. Anyway... get the new Nokia phone that you can send text messages with, therefore you can send a text message to livejournal and it can automatically post it for you. Just a thought. I have one. It is cool but takes a long ass time to type a message.

Me too!

I've actually thought of getting a PalmPilot for that reason. As it is, I've been taking little notes on scraps of paper at work. but I'm going to start taking a floopy to work with me, so I can journal in Notepad, and then bring it all home.

What's up?

Hey,
Just dropping by. Checking out the system.
Why does LJ say I am from Klamath?

Re: What's up?

It does something like if it can't find your city, but it recognizes your zip code, then it updates your city for you.

It's pretty retarded, in retrospect. I need to fix it.

Want to be an operator

Brad, I want to be an operator.. Since our timezone is the opposite.. (your day 12mn = my day 12 noon.) So, if I operate here, we can be very sure that we get all 24hours covered ;-) And since there is a significant amt of people in Asia using LJ.. consider I can talk in all 4 native language in China, Chinese, English, Malay, I bet it will personalise the entire system.. imagine talking to an operator with your own language... great? ;-)
