Life [Jan. 30th, 2004|01:09 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick

Office is bustling. So many people, and 3 people are still on their way. Rockin'.

Server architecture continues to improve. Upgrading all these "old" machines and changing the replication topology with minimal (few seconds) downtime for those users is always a fun challenge.

Evaluating 64-bit options for next round of DB servers. Opteron or Itanium. Doing evals of both. And then Yamill? :-)

My little brother's learning German. I help him whenever I'm over there. He was doing a family tree today with pictures and captions for everybody. "Er ist mein Opa. Er ist total alt." :-)

Playing with graphs (nodes/edges) is fun. So is load balancer. Too many fun projects.

Wrists kinda hurty today. Too much typing?

Got a new driver's license, after coughing up my SSN. A poster at the DMV even lied and said it was a Federal Requirement. They forgot to mention they're voluntarily bending over to get money from the feds. Anyway, I thought I was just getting a sticker and not a new license, so my photo rocks... hair all over, unshaven, black t-shirt. Rockin'.

Cucina Cucina for dinner. Good food. Fuck the exclamation marks, though. Yahoo! Cucina!Cucina! VoicePulse Connect!. Punctuation shouldn't be allowed in company names or products, and reserved for things like:

Today I received the worst fucking service from T-Mobile! (I did.) I upgraded my service, bought a new phone, with camera, and added the internet unlimited option, and the guy was a jack-ass.

Okay, you now know everything about my life. Goodnight.

Which phone did you get? I've got an SSH client on mine now.

"Internet unlimited" just doesn't exist for mobile phones in the UK, it's depressing. Isn't there some kind of monthly transfer cap?

Oh, and will there be photos of the new office bustle?

i hope they did not put your SSN on your liscense. if you lost that, then an identity thief would know enough to f*ck you over. and that's a mess you don't want. btw did you get the new liscense or is it like the old ones? I heard they were making new ones so that people under age 21 have different ones than people who are over 21. the difference is the layout.

I'm not a big phone guy. I don't know phones or providers or anything.

I just wanted something small with a camera, even if it's a shitty camera, just to test LJ's camphone support.
