nerdy fun

I'm having fun. Upgraded the database on freevote.com, fixed a corrupted table (minor), ran some scripts to purge some old data. Then, wrote a Perl script using Net::IMAP::Simple to suck all my mail folders down from UW's mail servers to my own IMAP server, which I actually have control over. Plus, the school's mail servers are slow and oddly configured. Now I can more easily backup my mail. The way the school had their IMAP servers setup, mail was all handled on a cluster of machines students don't have logins at, so we don't have access to our raw mail spools.

My night

Successful night so far. Cleaned my inbox, replied to everybody I needed to reply to, finished tabulating the judges' votes for the LiveJournal style contest (results in news), sent winners their gift cerficates (after I bought them, which required going out to my car at 2:30am to find my wallet), and worked on some LiveJournal code. Also did a bunch of stuff with FreeVote.com.

Want... sleep...

I couldn't sleep, so I got back out of bed and played with Mozilla on Windows for awhile. I download the new Mozilla Linux binary every night, but it had been awhile since I'd used Mozilla on Win32 --- I'm very impressed. Suck.com can say that Mozilla is dead, but I'm convinced it's just getting born ... it keeps getting better every day. It's very usable now.

Bowling

Awake now. Announcement from Mike:
    It's time once again for Tuesday bowling! Tonight we're going to start a bit earlier... 8:30. Be there! Valley Lanes. $1 per game, $1 for shoes, $1 for hotdogs, $1 for burgers, etc.
If you're in the Portland area, come.

Good swim

Back from swimming with Megan. It was nice. We talked a lot about the house .... she's going to be one of my 10 housemates come September 1st.

Grrrr

People are really bugging me off the past few hours .... not sure why. I just keep getting interrupted by phone calls, ICQs, my brother, emails ... Grrrr. Nick called and asked when we're running but I said screw it ... too pissed off to run, my stomache kinda hurts, and I don't feel like being interrupted. I even had a good run planned for the day. Whatever. I'm having fun programming now, so I'll keep doing that.

Bowling

Going bowling now with a bunch of people. It's Tuesday dollar-bowling night. I'm taking all my cousins along as well. They're bored of sight-seeing.

Bowling

Yeah, got back from bowling an hour ago. I'd write something interesting about it, but Nick and Dan described it better here and here, respectively.

Blythe's back from Florida ... I talked to her when I got back. I think I'll be going up to visit her this weekend. Megan's driving up for something, so I might catch a ride with her.

Going white-water rafting tomorrow on the White Salmon ... It's been a few years since I did that river last. I did it once, with my group when I worked at Tektronix. Usually I do the Descutes. The bad part about the White Salmon is that it's fricking cold in the gorge, whereas the Descutes is really warm, being in dry eastern Oregon and being in a valley. But anyway, it'll kick ass. I just gotta get to bed before 5am tonight if I'm going to wake up by 7:30 am to get ready and out of the house by 8.
