So, I went to the emergency room ... I was having some very annoying continuing pains that turned out to be an infection, the result of strenuous exercise. A couple hours later after waiting around at the 4 or 5 stations you have to go through before you actually see a doctor, they gave me some antibiotics and told me to basically stop running and stay away from sunlight. In other words, "Brad, go back to being a bum all day." I swear, every time I try and get in shape something retarded happens .... last summer I went running through a field and got an allergy attack that prevented me from breathing... had to go to the ER for that too, and they diagnosed me with asthma and gave me an inhaler. Anyway, I'm glad it's only an infection ... I was fearing worse. I should be able to sleep easier now, knowing that I have drugs that'll eventually make the pain stop.
Mike, Nick --- it was a fun four days of running. After 10 days or so of taking these pills twice daily, maybe I can run again. You'll probably be good by then. *sigh*
Blythe --- sorry for not calling. I'll call you tomorrow.

I have a fever. All is cold.
Went to the pharmacy, dropped off a prescription, went and had lunch with Mike, picked up my prescription and my mom's. So now my primary errand is taken care of. I started my laundry but don't feel like folding it. I never do. Who cares... I'll find it and put it on out of the laundry basket. Oh, also didn't get my oil changed yet, but I have a hundred miles or so left until I really need to do that.
So, now it's programmin' time.... feeling awake and ready to finish up the Windows LJ client and release the damn thing already. I think all the client code is done now ... I just have to make the server obey it for some of the new functionality.
All my LiveJournal stuff is working just wonderfully now. :-)
Linux is being stupid. I can't open up any network connection going out or going in. First thought: my retarded hub is dead .... switched it to a different port and heard my music skip. I'm playing mp3s on my Windows machine from my Linux machine .... so samba's working. So I do /etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart and my music skips for a second too. And I still can't use the Internet from Linux. wtf?? Do I have to reboot it?
I was blaming Linux for the network problems, but it turns out every machine in our house except for my Win2k machine can't do TCP/IP. The problem I believe is Win98 SE's "Internet Connection Sharing", Microsoft's half-ass attempt at IP Masquerading (NAT). For some reason it's confused and I'm unable to fix it. Very pissed off. Why do we have Win98 doing our NAT? Because my parents won't let me build a Linux box to run it on because they want to be able to maintain it when I'm not here. Time to get a Linksys NAT box.
Done with the Windows LJ client. Would've released it but I got distracted having to fix our network. Going out to eat now ... Chevy's (Mexican). Will package and release the new client upon my return.
