The talking claw

Cleaned up my cubicle a bit, working on getting several issues with different vendors taken care of. My day pretty much hinges on me getting email from those vendors to fix some assorted issues that we're having. It's a nice day today, first one in a while I'm pretty happy about that. Angie is gonna come by and we're gonna grab some lunch. Maybe I'll take a short lunch and head out a half an hour early or something.

I checked my bank account this morning... I should be right on track to have about $16k for a house in August... So $3,900 (at least) would go towards a down payment, and another $3500ish would go towards closing costs on the loan. I don't get that. They're getting massive amounts of money in interest, what the hell do they need closing costs for?

Looks like a teeny bopper bomb exploded in here

Isaac, Angela, and myself all went out to lunch. We made the mistake of going to Dairy Queen at the same time that Canby High School has their lunch break. It looked like a Backstreet Boys concert in there... about 4000 teeny bopper guys and girls, it was quite scary. Kids like that scare me... I just wanted to yell, "Hey there's Justin Timberlake" and watch the place clear out.

A little hint for all the guys out there. Always notice if your girlfriend gets here haircut. You'll be in deep shit if you don't.

People are too stupid to install other items themselves without wetting their pants

There is an interesting article about Sony using the Playstation 2 to dominate the console/PC market. Make it a killer application when the HD becomes available. A billion people are gonna have these things, and Sony could capitalize on this. Toss a little Linux on it, a web browser and an Internet connection and you got everything you've needed in a computer pretty much.

I'm all for anything that kicks Microsoft's ass!

Have you seen Caddyshack

So I was at the public library the other day picking up some CDs for my latest MP3 binge... So I sat down at one of the internet terminals and pulled up my personal webpage perturb.org and it was blocked! Their stupid internet filter blocked my website. There is nothing on it! It's boring, it's just all my personal tech exploits. I dunno why it's blocked.
