a wholly depressing day [Oct. 7th, 2000|02:08 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
The day didn't start out too well. I got a minimal amount of sleep, classes were boring, and I found out later that we won't get our DSL back until Wednesday. *sigh*

All I wanted to do this weekend was sit in my little dungeon basement room and program and get caught up on life. But no. Instead I'll have to come to the lab. Worse, Scott and I have a CS project due Tuesday so we'll have to do that in the lab as well.

Tonight I was going to go to the Quad on campus and watch the Matrix and Speed outside on a huge 40 foot inflatable screen, all wrapped up in a blanket, hanging out with a bunch of people. But no... I fell asleep and stayed asleep for 4 hours. When I woke up at midnight everybody was either gone or asleep, but I heard stories of people having a great time.

Then, I got to deal with a emotional girlfriend that wasn't having a good day. Joy.

So now I'm in the CS lab, catching up on email and pissed because I know my sleep schedule's going to be off for the next week.

And while I'm complaining, Mozilla's ender-lite widgets suck.

Why haven't I anything happy to write about? Bleh.

You probably won't take advantage of this opportunity, but it's sitting right in front of you.. all you need to do is invest a half hour in it.

Analyze your logs relating to revenue from Freevote and Livejournal, then note any decreases in the last couple days. You can, I'm sure, hold USWest liable for these losses since you, as a network administrator, need vital internet access to manage your sites. Because of their failure to supply you with bandwidth that you pay for, you've lost money in the last couple days.

I mean, fuck it, even if you haven't lost money.. stick it to these fuckers. Get this month's bill dropped, or get the next couple months' dropped. Do SOMETHING.. a week without access for some miscommunication on THEIR part is fucking BULLSHIT. I am really hoping you're as pissed about this as all of us are.. the whole house is really agitated about it, from what I've heard and said. So yeah.. stick it to these fuckers. You and the house deserve it.

Kicked those DSL ISP's butt. Go get cable... they won't disconnect you.
