I'm tired. Damn chirping birdies waking me up at 5:30 am ... Just because we plugged your hole so you can't shit on our deck anymore doesn't mean you have to scream and chirp all morning because you can't peck through the duct-tape to go rescue your babies trapped inside our roof. So inconsiderate.

I have a midterm tomorrow. The professor joked in class today, "During the exam isn't the time to fret about how much you suck or how you could've been better. During the exam is time to write... write whatever you know. Don't be thinking about how you didn't even read Rhodes." The whole class chuckled. Rhodes is the book we had to read for this midterm ... 800 pages or so of pure information. Everything about the topics we're writing on. The class laughed because of course they'd read it... it'd be absurd not to! Oh, but I didn't. I suppose I should care that I'm going to flunk, but I really don't think I will. So far this class seems really repetitive... each of his lectures overlaps half of the last one. The few parts of the book I've started to read have echoed exactly what's been said in class (or rather, he echos everything in the book), and our section reiterates all that. History schmistory. I could've gone one day per week this quarter and I'll probably still pass this midterm. We'll see, though.

I also have an AI project due tomorrow. Scott and I need to finish it. Scott's supposed to come over for Survivor tonight, but he won't leave his house. I have $25 coming my way if Colby wins tonight. Scott gets the $25 if Tina wins.

Yeah, still tired.

Oh yeah... I got my webcam and set it up. Really cool device. Been hackin' a bunch of stuff for it, but I don't have time to work on it more. Must go make food or something. Outside of breakfast and a little bar I got with coffee at 10, I haven't ate yet. That may be why I'm tired too.

Junior year as an Aeronautical Engineering student I went to class 14 times... ok so I got a 3.0... but what an education!

You'll do just fine. :-)

Some TV columnist in the local paper predicted Tina because of how some TV rep hesitated some months back when a question was asked about Tina. Guess we'll see.

Re: webcams

I'd be cautious with a company like X10. I _always_ see their ads as pop-up ads, spam and on places like porn sites. You can tell they are that type of company by reading that web site. Yellow/red text screaming "Hurry! Offer Ends Soon" and calling their technology "earth-shattering."

I am not saying they would rip you off, but their claims may be over-inflated.

X10.....

freaking rawks! I don't know anything about the xray thing (the link that Chuck posted took to damn long to load on my crappy connection) but their other products are way cool. Everything in our house is on X10 which means remote control (one controller for all) for EVERYthing (even the juicer is on X10). And we run it through the computer for when we're on vacation so the lights go on and off, that sorta thing. The company is totally reputable, we've never had a problem with them.

Re: Those POOR Birdies!!!!

I don't actually think there are baby birdies in there. The birds would've been more worked up.

I think they were still building the nest.... it was a new project for them. The shit on our windows was growing tons over the past two days.... we had to do something.

Re: Those POOR Birdies!!!!

I used to have my horses at a boarding stable, and birds used to build their nests in the beams above the aisle ways. we would knock the nests down so the birds wouldn't shit all over our saddles and everything else... the birds got so pissed that every time we'd walk by the door to the barn they'd like.. divebomb us, skreetching the whole way down and barely buzzing the top of our heads.
those assholes.

Later on I'll email you a diff on your current roof to stop bird-related mess without inconveniencing the birds! )
