not dead [Apr. 14th, 2001|02:58 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
People keep thinking I'm dead because I'm not posting, so here's a post. Summary of last few days:

rode the bus a lot
did a lot of homework and reading
lot of rain
thunder and lightning one day
setup a bunch of servers (ljtest, wendy, bebe, monstachuck)
NAT and firewalls are fun
two pairs of socks is fun
screwed with the cable so we could get cable TV instead of just cable internet ... needed to tape survivor. not quite done... need to finish this project later.
getting a lot of homework done on the busses lately
safeway! food.
todd colton (buddy from LA... used to work at virtualis... taught me to hax0r) sent me part of new 2pac album. always amazed how dead people can keep putting out albums. 2pac lives!
gdancer rules. cornholio is good for blink 182. ghostman loves 2pac. dormando doesn't.
tried to take a nap but various stereos kept me awake.
i invited a few people over to watch a movie and drink, but nobody came.
instead, i laid on the ground underneith my computer table with my headphones and listened to baxter while being depressed and cold
i need a laptop so I can go to pretty parks and program and go to my room and listen to music
i also want a spool of ethernet cable and crimpers
and a bunch more dvds... been awhile since i bought any
mowed the lawn yesterday w/ my gasless lawnmower (so fun)
chuck's lady friend commented, "I didn't think they even made lawn mowers anymore!" I asked, "how do you think lawns get mowed?". Her wonderful reply: "People have gardeners."
been working on LJ a bunch
no fun things... just maintenance, system stuff. making it fast, reliable, secure and backed up well.
going to go clean our basketball court and go find/buy a ball.
nice day outside.

cable thief!

for a while AT&T cable was putting out these commercials on random channels showing people being shocked and appalled when they find out one of their coworkers/friends "steals cable."

Scene: a high school reunion

Woman A: Isn't that Robby Buchanan!?
Woman B: Captain of the football team, class president, blahblahblah
Dorky Man: Caught stealing cable..
*all gasp!*

Onstage:
Singer: This one's for Robby Buchanan!
*sings*
Ohh he made the girls swoon with the looks of Travolta!
But he got caught stealing cable now he's strictly revolt-a!
*backup singers*
Stuipid Robby! oooh stupid Robby!

And Robby looks around sheepishly.

I work for a cable company, and I asked about stealing cable. Basically (at least here) they have to catch you stealing cable THREE times, before they can fine you. So basically they catch you stealing cable and tell you not, you do it again, and it's the third damn time before they can fine you.

Yeah, you do, since they can't cheaply remove the cable TV signal from the rest of the signal.

HOWEVER --- the asshole cut the line in the back of the house that goes to the 1 to 6 splitter, and connected the line instead to just one outlet.

So we have to rewire it back to how it was before.
