parents gone [Jan. 28th, 2001|12:44 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
(livejournal.exe crashed again --- but this time i was able to take a screenshot first and retype it ... using loserjabber now again)

done entertaining my parents for the day.

list of things we did:
  • greenlake + burritos
  • golden gardens
  • movie (snatch)
  • gordon biersch
  • broadway + dessert
they brought up my birthday presents and I opened them early:
  • few more pairs of pants (more than doubling my number of pants
  • HUGE FRICKIN' TOOL SET ... totally kick ass
  • pots and pans and skillets and cookin' stuff (are they trying to tell me something??)
  • rechargable powered vacuum cleaner ... totally cool. my parents have one at the beach: totally cool. i love to vacuum.
now blythe and i are going to continue watching willy wonka, since we didn't finish it last night.

I ate tooooo much at dinner today .... so stuffed. i always starve all day and then overeat at dinner. i need to learn to eat a little more often.

they were amused that you post some things with security so they can't read them. :-)

baah ... i didn't tell them what you wrote, just that you do. we were talking about livejournal and if anybody ever uses the security features. don't worry, dude. :)

My livejournal client never crashed yet since the day I signed up, perhaps it's your system? I'm running Win2k.

computers don't get in bad moods.

i don't understand people that say, "oh, my computer just sucks." or, "oh, gateway computers just suck."

no, i don't accept that.

something's at fault.

i want to find what

Of course computers get into bad moods! Mine does it all the time... everytime I use the coffe-cup holder and spill some drink on it, it whirrs and clicks like a madman at me. Or when I try to hit the anykey, I usually end up with a very sad computer; it must be sad because the whole screen goes blue :( So you see... some computers are just moody like that...

so far your system is the only one that i have heard about the win32 client crashing on. there has to be something about your setup that is either peculiar or at least non-standard.

i would be interested in hearing what the problem was, or at least how to recreate it.

i'll try typing my old entry that caused it to crash and seeing if that text makes it happen again (unlikely)

it's happened 4 times now with this latest version of the client, though, where i never had a crash before that.
