All About the Music

Man I love music, err well good music. The past couple days I have really been on a roll. I finished two songs (though one was mostly done and the other needed minor tweaks and to be mastered) and started another two, which I am quite excited about. And yesterday …

The Destruction of Music and You

Alright I am sick an tired of idiot record execs trying to cash in every nickel and dime that could ever be made from the music industry. I find it ironic that the word industry is in the phrase, and that it fits. Record execs manufacture music just as automobile …

Hello Kids It’s Bootstrap (and Bootleg?) Time!

Well, it looks like my futile attempt at rescuing my system off my bad HD has failed. At least I got my /home directory (though I had that backed up, thankfully). Now I have the thing bootstrapping from a Stage 1 Install, which I guess never hurts anyway. And I …

Decided to Head Home

Watch out this one is kinda long and is probably more boring that watching grass grow. Well this last Wednesday Corey and I decided to head home for a few days, which should explain the absense of Blog action. The phone lines quite frankly suck at my mom’s house. The …

Because Throwing Heavy Balls At Things Must Be Safe

Well…looks like that Hard Drive I complained about is toast. The good thing is that after moving it over to my other machine and running Western Digital’s diagnostic tools (tools that would be great in Linux, I might add) it definately reported an error. Even directed me to the right …

I Just Got That Kinda Touch

I don’t get it. Finals are over and what does my computer do? It breaks. And breaks good. fsck.resierfs failed because of some seek error so now I am patiently waiting hours running a full surface scan to see if my 80GB HD is jacked up. I must have messed …

No More Finals For Me!

Wh00h00! I finished my last final today! It was CS341 (Automata Theory) and I think I did pretty good, if I do say so myself. Of course, that doesn’t really mean much; I’ve felt good on many tests and have done horrible on. They were all theory-based classes. Coincidence? Proabbly …

Subtly Reminded

Well, I just finished my SPN312K final and I have to admit that it was somewhat challenging. They put what looked to be a Spanish version of a Calvin and Hobbes comic on the test, which, suffice to say, was quite difficult. Sure did put me in my place about …

Could It Be Coming From the Closet?

So I went down to Taylor basement today with John. We were settling a dispute about where Professor Nuckolls (our CS341 Prof) was standing for his mugshot on his personal website. I thought it was somewhere in ACES. It wasn’t, so John won :) But the real issue is not …
