evening in review

-- went to chuck's. hung out for awhile, but eventually got bored and decided to take off. i just wanted to talk to people and hang out, not watch a movie.

-- got hungry, so blythe and I went and picked up Evan and we went to Safeway and bought food necessary to make chicken fajitas... we then proceeded to cook while I cleaned the kitchen (god our house is a dump)

-- scott and I worked on our homework for awhile, but we're confused so we're putting it off for later

-- going to clean up my inbox now, then work on more LJ stuff.... LJ stuff is fun, lately.

can't wait to get my digital camera.... hurry up, amazon! i hope it arrives before I go to Portland for the weekend. my god... look at this sample picture .... 3.1 million pixels. oh my. look at the texture on the wax... on the paper! i can't wait.

installing latest version of evolution from cvs while I work on some LJ optimizations and bug fixes.
Trippy, tired, Tired

I want snow!!!

.TONIGHT AND MONDAY...MOSTLY CLOUDY. CHANCE OF RAIN. LOWS IN THE UPPER 20S AND 30S. HIGHS IN THE MID TO UPPER 40S. I think what it's trying to say is... CHANCE OF SNOW!

so sad.

I accidentally overwrote one of my maintenance script plug-in files on livejournal when I meant to "Save As..." instead of "Save..." (C-x w instead of C-x s). I thought, "oh well... I'll go get it from a backup." My backup script did this, though:

tar cvf $FILE bin/*
tar cvf $FILE htdocs/*
tar rvf $FILE cgi-bin/*
tar rvf $FILE ....
tar rvf $FILE ....
gzip $FILE

See the mistake? The bin/ directory was never being backed up because my second tar line should've been "tar r", not "tar c".

Oh, I'll go find it from the emacs tilde file, right? Nope ... I'd find -name '*~' -exec rm {} \;'d all those.

So shit.... I have to rewrite it. I don't enjoy that.

gay gay windows

windows 2k froze up again. i even upgraded my video drivers (voodoo 3500) last night, so I guess I can scratch that possibility.

like i said yesterday or so, the machine's still pingable, and programs still run, but the image locks up....

ideas?

accomplishments!

--- sent x2vnc author a patch that basically completes a feature that he never implemented but had all the framework for: saving encrypted passwords in a text file to use instead of typing it at the command line... this way I don't need to use an expect script to start it, my password isn't in clear text, and it no longer needs to open a tty to run, so I can run it from my gnome panel directly, without launching an xterm first.

--- did a bunch of chores, in an effort to clean up our house.

--- completed by compiler homework w/ scott. who needs a postscript printer when you have ps2pdf and a acrobat on windows? *sigh* ... anybody know how to get a HP Deskjet 970Cse to work under Linux? i suppose i could research it. heheh.... stupid Linux. gots to be all difficult and without any standards. *sigh again*
