nighttime adventures

11 person house ... friday night ... i'm the only one here.

i cleaned the keyboard that had beer in it. keyboards are so incredibly simple inside... i'm impressed. they used to be so heavy and complicated. no wonder computers cost $1,000 now instead of $3,000 ... every part down to the keyboard is cheap.

hrrm .... sometimes I kinda want quality, though. i mean, a little bit of beer got in this keyboard at the party and it died... back in the day i'd spill dr. pepper after dr. pepper in my keyboards and they'd just keep on tickin'.

speaking of quality stuff, i'm now bidding on an IBM Deskstar 75GXP harddrive. no more low-quality hard drives for me, no sirree. and no more western digitals, that's for sure. thanks for all your comments ... they were really helpful.

other fun stuff --- played with nautilus. looks extremely promising. i've been using evolution, nautilus, and mozilla on linux lately... can't wait until they're all finished. VFolders in evolution? oh my ... that rocks so hard. Nautilus' view types? oh my ... so damn cool. mozilla? well, sure beats netscape on linux, that's for sure. i got my sound card working earlier, too, so i have little need to boot back into windows.

tonight's further plans: clean room. sleep. (cleaning room is a prereq, as my bed is covered in shit)

tomorrow's plans: car wash?

afternoon in review

washed car, inside and out, at car wash place in ballard w/ blythe.

went to lunch with kenji and blythe at Chioneoisoisus (sp?). I had a ton of Chicken Phad Thai and noodles and rice for $7. they had tiny little morsels of raw fish ("sushi") for $20. pathetic. i win.

scott and I are working on a project now.

(no subject)

scott and i went to the store to pick up dr. pepper and ice, necessities for programming. we got a fair amount done, but we're kinda burnt out again. school projects are never too exciting.

sarah just called me a bit ago and is bored. i suggested we go see charlie's angels, after reading patrick's review of it the other day. so, i'm off to go see that now. scott and i will resume our compiler hackin' later. i also want to get some LJ code changes done tonight.
