my day [Nov. 17th, 2000|03:52 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
went to all my classes. even tried to pay attention in all of them. got a 91 on my compilers midterm.

went to evan's dorm after classes but he wasn't around.

walked back home, stopping at the bank to deposit some checks.

goal for the weekend: buy a nice digital camera. i miss my camera.

windows keeps locking up on me, but in a weird way --- it seems either my video card or my video driver is bad, because mp3s will keep playing, and I can still ping the machine, so I know networking is still running, and programs can still run, but when I try to connect to VNC with it, it doesn't work .... plus, i seem gibberish on my screen sometimes, and it seems to lock up when drawing fonts... it'll draw a few glyphs without anti-aliasing, then have some gibberish rough-edged ones, then all freezes. very odd. i'll try getting a new driver, but it'll be hard to know if that helps, since the lockup is so infrequent.

stupid windoze.

i'm going to hack on loserjabber now, since I no longer maintain the win32 client, and I need some new client functionality to test some new server features. evan --- you're going to have to clean all my ugly gtk code up. heheh. :-)

I wanna come

Let me know when you go camera shopping. I've been in the market for a new camera too but have up until now been pretty unsatisfied with the options. BUT, it's been about 5 months since I've researched them...so maybe they'll be something new out. Let me know when you go shopping, we can go visit Kailani at work maybe.

Re:

i not very scarable. and i do date cs boys. i like geeky boys. and i tend to understand them more than i do "normal" people ( * theatre boys (especially techies) are spiffy too. that and after having the world ignore me for years it's slightly ammusing to have large numbers of guys hit on me a lot. boys are silly.
