No laptop

So she came and fixed my display, but not the motherboard. Evidently, Dell filed two tickets with one fix item each, rather than 1 ticket with two items to fix. So she has to come back tomorrow or later today to fix the motherboard.

I'd really like a working laptop.
I'd really like a working cable modem.
I'd really like school to be over.
I'd really like InnoDB to not segfault, hang, and suck.
I'd really like some motivation and direction.

I made spaghetti. (heh... had to uncapitialize that.) Now I have a billion things to do, but none of them ending in an immediate benefit, so it's hard to get started on anything.

Yesterday was easy: everything I had to do was to fulfill some prereq of another goal. My mp3 player arrived. I went home to get it. I wanted to update its firmware but had no net access. I went to Evan's to get a modem. But first I needed gas to get there. I had to setup ppp for the modem to work. I had to setup ipmasq for windows machine to have net access. etc, etc. I didn't get much done, but what little I did accomplish was meaningful.

Today I have the potential to get so much done, but have it not feel like anything.

So I guess it's time to get started.....

clean room (it'll get messy later)
do homework (school isn't over until mar. 24th)
work on DB shit (so innodb guy can fix problems, fix not available for few days at best)

Running today, Brendan? Or too tired? mp3 player and I will run otherwise.

Hah ... I emailed my dad, telling him my mom infected herself. His reply: "Aren't you proud of your mother, installing programs all by herself? :)"
