Workin on getting comments working for Nathan and Angi. No idea why it doesnt work.
Work was shorts and bbq today.
Watching Signs. weird shit.
Saw 18 BMWs on my way home from work.
Bad post I know. Sorry.
I want that other job sooo bad. There is an opening at the UofO that I've applied for and so far the only one I've applied for. This one failing I may just go work with/for my uncle. The other jobs I have info about are damn phone jobs and I would really like to not work the phones for 8 hours a day again.
3 day weekend! and I get to wear shorts tomorrow and Friday. I gots to call my old man about this weekend too. See if rafting is happening or what exactly the plan is.
Things have been quite around here. Ern and Kala both seem to be MIA of course this will get a responce from 1 or both of them. The forums has a new member. Jenny from Washington. I don't know you but hi and welcome... if you manage to make it to this part of the site.
I keep having the urge to start the next paragarph or sentance with Tomorrow and I do it almost everydamn day and I have no good reason for it. I wil justl chalk it up to retarded for now.
I have 888 comments for 661 posts. 54 days of employment left and another gallon of coolant on the way for my bimmer from bavauto.
I'm still working on ideas for the fujitsu stylistic 12000.... so many ideas so little actually useful. So until it gets job or plan no more money spent on it. I should also say until i get a job or a new one to spend money on it.
Again I'm over goal for calls this month. I should get the next couple of days off before they put us back in to manditory overtime to meet goals for next month. but noooo.
tonight was bond night too. watched Live and Let Die. The 1st one with roger Moore as bond.
I spent a good part of yesterday rolling around in coolant and working on my car . I borke a nut while reattaching the damned water pump and neglected to attach the thermostat completely the 1st time so much coolant and water flowed all over the floor. So anyways water pump is held by 3 out of 4 nuts and there is mostly water in the cooling system. But I drove it about 40 miles yesterday and it didn't overheat and it is holding fluids with no problem. I have new coolant on the way and some waterwetter as well.
I've decided not to upgrade to MT 3.0. The main reason is the new liciensing they they have chosen. Basicaly I'd be the only one who could be an author. Which isn't how things work around here.
Tomorrow marks 55 days left of employment.
Moveable type 3.0 has been released... I may see about upgrading. partly just for doing it the other part to see new features. Hell it can be as bad as going from one version of the product I provide support for to the new version and getting screwed....
Anyways I just got my anti-seize compound and some black again. That stuff works. I've applied it to the not so black plastic/rubbery parts of my car. They are most defintaly black again. I should a taken before and after shots of it. I havent done the whole thing yet so i could show some of the untreated sections to compare to treated section of simmilar type... I think I'm gonna wash her before I take her to Nathans either tonight or tomorrow.
This pay period is going to be quite tight... got insurance, rent,car payment and DSL bukk all needing to be paid. Maybe I will start grubbing for change at the bus station at lunch time. I think I'm screwed but not much can be done about it now other than deal the best I can. I maybe able to strech the DSL for another couple weeks. (crosses fingers)... I also have to figure out how/when to start saving for the impending job loss...
58 days of employment remain. Hopefuly I can find something new and leave them before they can give me their severnce check. This would leave them with one less agent taking calls. So they would be losing around 500 calls a month which is bad for business and I want their business to be bad.... I've started the application process at a place so far hopeful more by the end of the day or week. If I find a new job somewhat promptly I will most likely not get my vacation time which is the only down side to a new job at this point.
hmmm. Start car work tomorrow after work for the hell of it and get it over with? may not be a good idea. I should work on finding new work tomorrow...
Nathan you should post in the forums more.... punkass... where the hell has Kala and Ern been? some great adventure I'm sure.
fuck the man and his minions.
Today we were all pulled from our respetive tasks at 2:30pm to attend a meeting. At this meeting they told us in 60 days we will be ramping down our contacts while our client has their new out sourcer ramp up. So in about 60 days I will not have a job where I am currently working.
I've got 1 idea so far. This involves talking to my uncle who works for the gray backs in grants pass. I may go fight fires or see if i can land some cooshy office job and just send money back and come home on weekends. or something.
Large companys are the devil.
I've done started to start another project for the site. Still waiting for more info/goods from some people. if it ever gets further off the ground you will know.
1 more day done YAY!.
Now to kill a couple more hours. Code? Game? gather info? Nap? Snack? Drive? Work on site? Movie?
Paid again soon. thats good.. Hopefuly I will afford all da bills...
Tiffany and I rasterbated last night. I have a rasterbation of my car and a bond girl. Maybe I will send them to the rasterbation gallery...
It is offical I have the week of August 2nd-6th off. Woohoo. No work for a week. It's still a little more than a month away but hey thats ok. We so far is planning a road trip.
We got another 3 day weekend on the way. YAY. I can't get out of enough work. Damn I hate my job.
Tiffany bought me a torque wrench yesterday. So now my repairs will be that much more presice.
Yesterday's/last nights post was lame. Sorry. But I had to post something. Chris was here and so was Tiffany's friend Rachel so I had to be semi-scocial.
Anyways Grants Pass was good. Got to see some family I haven't seen in years. We all would have preferded the circumstances be diffrent. I will be gaining a new project from the whole thing as well. This being lots of scanning and some picture taking of many family photos that various members of the family want to have for them selfs. Not only will this make copies to print avaiable to the whole clan it will also put them in a 2nd form being digital being a bit safer to handel than some of the 80+ year old prints.
The new media page is slowly but surely coming along. I've started some of the interface pieces. But that will most likely be the slowest/worst part to do... getting and displaying the information is easy but getting is a bit diffrent.
I spent a long time in transit the last few couple of days. After getting back and catching the tail end of Tiffany's and Heathers graduation party we went to Florence. I think I like newport and Lincoln City better....
Chris is in the kitchen making Gin and Tonics. This is after me makin Vodka Gatorades.
The service was really nice today.
Time to drink.
I've got to get my dad something for Fathers day. As well as supplies to do stuff for my car come the time that I do that (sunday?).
I've got tomorrow off because of my grandma's funeral on Saturday. Once I find out if I'm taking my sister down with me or not will determine when I leave tomorrow. Hell I could leave tonight if I wanted too but I'd be in trouble with Tiffany for that...
Gotta pack, wash car, get parts/tools, find water (the good stuff for the car none of that tap water crap), do the dishes. befor I leave...
Ok I'm back I just never posted befor leaving. so I got my 8mm hex some clean clean water from safeway and a oilpan thingy to help catch fluids when fluids start to flow.
It is damn hot outside. Two words "hot leather".
My stuff is here. My stylus for my new old toy. My Radiator and all of it's friends are here too. This is exciting stuff. Now I've just got to do the work and buy the other stuff I need. . Which is the part I'm not looking forward too. I do have windows 98 installing on the early black and white tablet pc as I type this.
Bond tonight. Lisa will be coming over around 6 and Tiffany gets off at 6 so we can all watch... This is the only thing stoping me from going out and getting more stuff to do the job at hand, and lazyness. I'm thinking sunday will be the day of car work, if I am back yet...
Media page is coming along. I spent way too long on a query for it last night. But it's of. Now just to refine the code I already have for easier use later...
I'm gonna put shorts on.
Today they gave everyone a chance to grab at some Microsoft software and a bit of hardware too. 3 pieces for everyone. Lots of crapy golf and flight sims. I got a couple map programs and didn't care for anything enough to get a 3rd.
This week is moving far far too slow. But at least its moving and I am 1 more day closer to getting paid again. Even though it is more than a week away still.
Added 2 show mes today... Tiffany will be happy I finaly got around to hers but it's not very good. Oh well. Eye for an Eye and a sholder for a sholder.
Made some more progress on the media engine. I should go work on it some more.
Ok I have a media page in the works. It isn't for downloads but tracking of movies, cds, vhs... maybe more...
On the way here is 1 cooling kit for my car. And hopefuly a stylus for my new pen computer.
I've got yet another idea for a page... But I dunnoo.. it involves google's image search.
It is mostly offical now Tiffany will be graduating. She wasn't too sure for a while now. But its all good now.
I'm gonna play game now.
My Fujitsu Stylistic 12000 has arrived. It seems to be missing the stylus which is a problem for me. But the seller is putting it in the mail tomorrow. I've already upgraded the harddrive. I've also found I can power it with my laptop charger. But I will mostlikely get a AC and maybe DC (car) adaptor for it as well. I've still got no solid idea of what to do with it but I've had a bunch of ideas that i entertain for all of 10min at a time before i figure out I can't afford to do anything for while. I wanna save up for things like window tint, road trip, etc. I should wait until winter to spend money on projects and toys, right?
The weekend is almost over. Which is sad. I imagine the excitement of the week will be tracking my new cooling system that will be on its way. And then finishing the week off with my grandma Furneral.
So I just ordered a cooling system overhaul kit from bimmerworld.com it includes a new radiator, waterpump, hoses, thermostat, thermostat housing, and 1.5L of BMW Coolant. All for less than $300 ($289.00 to be exact) before shipping. After shipping it cames to $320.something. Which is a pretty decent deal considering at Bavauto just the radiator and thermostat housing cost $289.something. So once it gets here I plan to hijack natahans tools and car-hole and enlist Nathan to help.
I've got another showme to put up. I've still got to get Tiffany's submission from like a month ago up. She done made it a harder one to do. I've also added another list to the lists page. Made a couple other updates too.
I wore shorts to work today. Because I could.
Tiffany got her Ipod today. I wanna open it and play with it. I'm still awaiting my new thingy from ebay. Also maybe ordering myself a radiator soon too. I've also discovered some other parts I'd like to replace like the drivers side wheel valance(wheel well lining). I belive one of the previous owners liked bumping into curbs and such.
Grandma's funeral is next Saturday. Thats about all I know so far. My dad will call with more details once he has more.
I've got new lists on the way for the lists page. I've got the lists made I just have to drop them into a page and link things up. maybe php them up... maybenot.
The Clark clan is down by one today. My Grandma Inez B Clark passed away today at noon. She had been telling my Aunt and Uncle that she would be going on a trip soon. My Aunt didn't quite get it and thought it was just confusion of the meds and pain. Today she too her trip.
Nathan(from ihatecancer.org, and work) has made a mess of things. Well left his stink on them at the very least by posting a comment to every entry he could see... Not that its a problem the more the merrier or something like that.
The week is moving along. Work is ok. They have moved a couple a noobs to either side of me. So now I'm a bit worried about that. Gotta be on slightly better behaivor for a while. Maybe not. The noobs aren't super new but still pretty new. They will so hate the company and customers after a week or so of being next to me. I hope this isn't a problem for someone.
Found ebay has new radiators for my car going for about $140. Vs the $200ish I've seen at other places so I may end up with one of those sooner or later and visting Nathan and his tools sometime soonish...
Wonder when my Fujitsu thingy will show up. Wonder what to do with it. BW digital picture frame? MP3 Player? Navigation Device? Once I figure it out I will let you know. And most likely make a page all about it.
Started working on giving the sites I hosts on my other domain statsicsal pages. This is proving to be a bit more tricky than I had hoped. But Hopefuly I will get it one of these days.... ok i got it. but this post has been like 5 hours in the making... (I get side tracked)
Got the bad Bond movie out of the way. The rest are back to normal bond speed and such.
I just won a new project of some kind. I'm still not sure what I'm gonna do with it it but I will be taking sugestions.
I also got the bit of code done that will show the most newest show me on which ever page i decide to put it...
I've had a geeky urge lately. To build/setup/create/mod something to do my bidding. I've got a few ideas. My main problem is lack-o-cash to carry them out. Not to mention I'm not sure what I'd like to accomplish. I've got a few ideas but nothing solid or that I like enough to just go for.
Woohoo just added a another new show me. From Mick in the UK. Very cool. I've got another new idea for the show me engine. a link on another page like the front page, stuff or community page with a link to the most recent submission. It would be a very simple sql query.... Now to come up with something for Tiffany's Angel submission...
Tomorrow night is bond night again. I think it's the worst of the bond movies next. No matter still good stuff.
I need some diffrent and unique to offer vistors and pull more in. I've got to figure out what that can be. I'm not a news site. I'm not a site about antics and information like cockeyed.com. I'm not any thing in particular. My quotes page is a minor success. A couple sites here and there link to it and I get lots of hits because of it. Now to stumble upon something like that again. Show me has been a moderate success. But more people need to send stuff. I know I still have one of Tiffany's to put up but thats not the point.
It's 5:20ish and I'm still not dressed. I opted to not go to the races today. I've spent some of the time cutting the footage i got. But Premier keeps crashing each time I export a section. It's very annoying.
this is yesterdays incomplete post.
Nathan and I went to see Sean race/drive today at auto-x thing. Got some decent footage of a BMW e30 m3. Also got some footage of sean. I have yet to fully review the footage and pictures taken. Perhaps I will put some up for download.
Bought Aqua Teen HUnger Force Vol 1 today. I love this show.
Chris has offered his place for us to stay if we do go to the Oakenfold show. Which I'm still deciding. I wish that was a longer weekend for me/us... It also happens to be Kala's b-day and I wouldn't mind getting outa town for a day or 2 and see the lovely Kala and meet the Ernesto. But chances of that workin out are not so good.
I need ideas for more site content...
I've noticed that many of the bum/homeless population here in Eugene are quite friendly once you give them something, like some change. Sometimes even if you don't they are more than happy to make some small talk with you. Today when i went to wash my car someone who seemed homeless although may not have been asked me for change. I applogized as I had none, if i had gone in side I may have been able to find some but I knew my pockets and car were both change free. Here comes another passerby with what looks to be a white carry-out box of some sort. Our vagrant friend asks him for change. Mr Carry-out digs for a few moments and finds some ammount of change to offer. I hear bits and pieces of the converstaion one of the 1st words was "echo" and later sounded as if they were talking about rent and a place for the vagrant. Once over they went their ways.
Another time Tiffany and I were attempting to be mechanical but would later realize we lacked the proper tools to do what we would nessary to do the job we were looking to do. Anyways part way though another drunk bum with a guitar wonders up, sits down and proceeds to try and make friendly. Neither Tiffany nor I were very receptive to him....
I've had other runins much like this with others over the years. Makes me wonder if they choose this style/life for scocial reasons vs econmical/hygenical. Many of them get free things, and speak to all sorts of people thoughout the day/week and very few seem truely detached.
If I had more gumption/modivation/balls/etc... I'd take some pictures and ask some questions of each one i encounter and document it so someone could see something more than a bum. But they do kinda scare me...
Oh and once the Vagrant and Carry-out guy were done. Mr Carry-out said to me "Nice Ride"... I replied with thank you....
1 left this week. Damn it's gonna be rough to go back to 5 day work weeks. But the money won't hurt next pay check as I just got paid up on my DSL, Rent, Insurance, and carpayment. My phone bill is most likely due sometime soon too. One of these days I will figure out how to save some money to afford more fun toys and to do more things to my car. Like tint the windows or replace the radiator or get a sub.
Lisa got a new job at work. She is now doing mac support. Which basicaly means she isn't doing any work cause they like never get calls. So now there is no one to the right of me at work. Everyone is leaving. Jon is workin on getting out too..
So I'm looking up jobs cause I want out too. Some jobs actualy want you to pay them like $170 as a fuckin application fee... I have a steady job and I don't have a $170 to pay to try to get a job. Application fee to me says we will put your name in for the $170 but you still may not get and we keep the $170.
I've got lots of marketable skills just not enough of any given set nor the years experince everyone wants. Should start my own biz and be rich then buy everyone out and fire them all or pay them crapy wages and make them wish they had new jobs... Maybe not...
I got my GPS and camera out and took took one picure for my potental project. Punched in my GPS cordinates almost saw the spot i took the picture from. it was damn close to being right where I was. But the satelite images are a bit too far out in my opinion anyways, I'm still looking into it and thinking about it. I have been playing with the GPS, mapping/photo gathering software I now have a huge image of above eugene. Kinda cool.
I did however fix a broken link. Thats about all i've done around here today. I played games with mike for most of the evening.
I need a new job.
3 left in the week and 1 more with no supervisor. Well not my supervisor anyways.
I've gotten a bit lazy with the site again. Progess on a few things has halted. But I'm sure I will get back around to thing soon enough. Hopefuly finish up the forums look soonish. Then move on to other things. More submenus.
I think I almost just had an Idea. Something like cockeyed's old Jst Photos (which i can't find anymore so no link.) but not just a street more like random places around town over a map/arial photo. But then again it would/could be a lot of work... Now to make this a live project or just drop it on you all at once.... This may be something good to have live on my local non JNS server. The gears are turning... A good excuse to use my GPS and Camera at the very least.... Then the question is where to start. edit: I found it, the example.
