Waiting on parts. . . [Oct. 14th, 2006|06:43 pm]

[music |The ancient whirr of a 4gb IDE drive.]

Oh, how I love the USPS. They have lost my motherboard in mail routing hell. . .I sold my decent computer for parts to build a new one, and ordered said parts on ebay, mostly. So now I've been waiting for a week for my motherboard, since I recieved a tracking number.

It's will be an awesome machine once built. . .made even more awesome to me by the fact in the interim between sell my machine with a gig of ram and getting this one, I am using an iMac/debian with 96 megs. Chug, chug.

Sleep is for the week (end). [Oct. 11th, 2006|04:27 pm]

Oye, I stayed up so late tinkering and trying to drive worries out of my head, finally it was morning and i figured I might as well keep going. I really hope I get some good news on the work front this week, before I go completely insane (and go back to work at Waffle House). All my other projects are pushed back at this point, I feel lazy working on art and such when I'm this broke, so I tweak my resume and tinker on unixy things that make me feel like I'm increasing my professional knowledge, flexing my skills, and preparing for work I don't yet have.

Randomly, whozatmac decides to post something on LJ, months and months nd months since his last post.

My little baby is 5 months old now, as are the realities of parenthood. I love being a dad, I love his smile. Terry is the most beautiful thing ever to happen to me.

OTOH, being a dad makes a person think about things in different ways, planning for the future, wanting to know when the paychecks come instead of being happy freelancing and living feast or famine, working when when I want money and not working when I want free time, that's been my strategy for my 20's. My cross country adventure made any last need for money and luxury sort of dissolve into a freedom from material, but as a father material and stability are intertwined, I want to have a job, own a house, get high-class health insurance. . . so I'm trying to find a good corporate-haxor jobby.

I had a decent interview on Friday with an out of band access company that services most of the Fortune 500, but I've had a few of those before, so really I don't get my hopes rolling too much until we start signing paperwork. At least I try not too, but damn, I hope I know something soon. I continue to polish my resume and monitor my Monster account, but I'd really just rather be done with the searching, the interviewing, the hoping and worrying. . .

Found while distracted by the internet. [Jun. 15th, 2006|02:42 pm]
"~Being a good writer is 3% talent and 97% not being distracted by the internet.~"

This is a random sig I found in a random place on a wander through the back hallways and gravel alleyways of port 80.

Serious Box [May. 8th, 2006|09:24 pm]


I got a seriously punk-ass computer case for my desktop. I found it in a friends back yard and hosed it off. It was functioning as a spiders nest, but I evicted the black widows and inserted one modern computer system into this 10 year old rack mount 4U server chassis.

He shares with me his anxiety through his tears, and I share with him my confidence through hums and conversation.
The hums also help me because the anxiety is overwhelming to me too, especially when mine blends with his cries, his words that are bonded to me, so that they come right into my emotional center and I feel his hunger, his discomfort, and his nervous stress.

I guess this is a good reason for the first post in a long, long time. My son was born Saturday, April 29th, at 7:26 PM in Huntsville Hospital.

Life on red tile. [Aug. 24th, 2005|12:09 am]
[mood |amusedamused]

It’s 5pm, the early hours of the day. I stop in at the coffee shop, and ask Dave for ‘a lot of espresso, topped with coffee.’ Welcome to Friday night, my first in this particular kitchen, and I walk into a seven-foot pile of dishes.
