on the road, just got some mcdonald's ... ETA: back in portland around 3:30
Back in Portland now. Plan: unpack car, start my laundry, take a shower, put together my computers, put on some clean clothes....
Computers are now both setup and working. We have something like 8 or 9 computers in this housing sharing one 56k modem ... it's frickin' terrible. My parents said they would've called TCI and got cable installed before I came home, but alas they have not... so I'm stuck on this damn modem for a week.
Gonna go hang out with Nick for awhile. Too stressful around here.... my mom's on a cleaning spree in preperation for all our relatives (the entire state of Iowa, all 40 of them) coming tomorrow.
Back from Nick's... we watched (part of) Fight Club, then I got bored and left. Going to program now, and maybe unpack all my shit.
So, picture this: I'm sitting here at my computers, now setup in the large storage/furnace/water-heater room in our basement, rolling around in my rolley chair on the cold cement ... all the wiring in the house comes together here (cable, network, intercom, vacuum system). The room is totally unfinished... the lighting is 3 bulbs hanging from the ceiling. There's a double matress setup over in the corner propped up on some wood. All my stereo and computer wiring is laying all over the room. I have nothing to do ... no obligations, no homework, no work, no chores, nothing! So what's that mean? It's LiveJournal programming time! Oh hell yes... !! I figure I'll work on the Windows client instead of web stuff... that way I won't feel the pain of the 56k modem as much. When cable is installed Friday night, then I'll go back to web stuff.
