Justly, it's just me, writin' my journal... [Dec. 11th, 2001|06:00 pm]

Drove to school.
German was relaxing.
Went to Office Depot.
Bought a big plastic thing.
Put shit on it.
I hate plastic furniture. :-(
But it's so cheap and light.
Can you count the 9 USB devices?
"Built to Spill" is good. Thanks, Eli.
Left my credit card at Dante's last night.
Picked it up on way to pick up Brendan.
We ran the long loop around Greenlake.
Wir haben der sind den langen Pfad um Greenlake gelaufen.
I think that's the right adjective ending.
Too lazy to go get book and check.
German final will be easy...
... she gave us details of everything that'll be on it.
Math will be boring, but not too bad...
... just need to review steps of algorithms.
Linguistics will be seemingly easy....
... and I'll fuck it up.
Only 1 more day of class!
Shower time.

Wow. A Big Plastic Thing (tm)

Um...

Haha.

Wir sind gelaufen. In German we combine the perfect past (if that's what it is) with both sein and haben. I don't know the rule, but I have the feeling that sein is combined with verbs of motion. But you also combine it with other stuff, it seems. Oh wait, a certain temporary condition something can be in?

Ich bin gelaufen, gefahren, gegangen, verreist.
Es ist vereist. Es ist geschlossen.

Ich habe gelesen, gegessen, gerlpst.

Tricky. Aber: Ich habe gehabt und ich bin gewesen. I dunno what the rules are. I have the feeling the thing about motion is correct though. Movement, I mean.

Otherwise though, the whole thing was correct! Hee hee.

Oh, and I missed the whole verbs-of-motion-and-change-of-state-take-sein rule! *smacks forehead* And I scored in the 99th percentile on the national German exam, too. Oh well.

You've got 9? I've got 6 (scanner, printer, digital camera, flash reader, mouse, mp3 player) and I thought that was insane.

Re: Damn

Both my monitors are USB hubs, which show up to the operating system as "USB devices".

So I only have 7 interesting USB devices:
  1. mouse
  2. printer
  3. cd burner
  4. scanner
  5. camera
  6. mp3 player
  7. wireless base station (USB only to configure)

Hey Brad, slightly OT, but going from that picture and looking at your computers, they're on a KVM switch, right? Does it work well? What brand? I'm thinking of picking one up.

I suck!

Sorry dude, it's 12:25am. What I am thinking? I see two monitors, but I was only clued into "no KVM switch there!" when I saw the second keyboard. Stupid me. Is there a second mouse hiding somewhere there too?

Re: I suck!

x2vnc is definitely cool. I've seen a four monitor setup of that. talk about requiring a huge mouse pad.
