Yay, Axel tore the shit out of my hand, my mouse is on the fritz, and things still are fucked with the bank. Fun fun.
Bank is trying to tack on a third overdraft charge, for reasons unknown (I've not used it since last week, so there hasn't been any additional charges), bringing the total up to $78 they want for their screw up.
On the mouse, it seems to be resetting what ever is on the hub that it is on, so apparently the PS/2 adapter it was on before, and now my USB hub with the scanner and such. Yay… more money I gotta spend…
Yeah, I know I've not written anything lately. Been fucking crazy with Christmas and all. Been working on this website for a guy, and damn near finished, with a deadline of sometime today. Of course the last thing needed is a minor cosmetic thing, but causing the most trouble. Also got some new animals around. Two baby piggies, and 3 llamas. Pig pics are in the gallery, and llama ones are on the way. At the moment I just feel like I'm going to drop though.
power went out, turning everything off and ending funkyshit's uptime of 27 days. Plus that spurned on some IP issues. Fucking router won't do static IP's with DHCP enabled, nor will it give a requested IP….
Meh. worked a bit on the old family computer, since my brother is taking it and my mom wanted a document off it. Damn thing shot up to 145 degrees, idling. CPU was at 0%. Damn thing heated up my room to where its 10 or so degrees hotter than the rest of the house. Gotta get it cooled down before my bro takes it.
Not too much is going on. Watched Ice Age tonight, good movie. Also got a NNTP news server running on funkyshit here. Friend of mine is moving soon (He's been trekking over Europe and Canada now), and he's getting ready to head again, so wanted to stay in contact with some people, so I set up news, email, etc for him where he can get it all remotely.
As a thing that really sucked, on the PT, got ahold of the doc's today, and they said they wont give another order for PT without an appointment and work comp has to approve it. Fuckers.
Dunno why, but lately I've been in a kick where I want to make a robot. I figure, make one using a 486, running Linux and controlled remotely via SSH or something, and using any other spare parts I can find or make. Dunno what I want to do yet. If anyone has ideas, let me know. I was thinking about making either a head that is sorta like Johnny 5's, with my webcam in it, and load it with a speaker and led's and light sensors, then have it able to turn its head on its own (to follow what its looking at), and speak using festival, or a robotic arm. Since i am not gonna run X or anything like that, the 486 should be fine.
also, made a uptime image
