Life in Huntsvegas [Jun. 21st, 2007|12:07 pm]

[Current Location |Work (blah!)]

Yesterday was been an exciting day. And yannow, I've come to a realization: I don't tell you people enough about what goes on in my life. As a journal, at times my blog has been lackluster and I haven't shared every moment with you people. And I tell you what bugs me the most about not recording everything here is and that is this: most things are time sensitive. For example, I wanted to come home Saturday afternoon and write about Kevin Costner and Mr. Brooks but I had to work. When I got back from work, I crashed and have been crashing every day since then.

Let me tell you about yesterday since I'm still excited and fantasizing about the possibilities. Yesterday the local talk radio station had a free lunch at the park. I got to meet the radio host who does the drive home show as well as his producer. I handed them both my card and told Will (the host) I would love to fill in for him sometime. He said his vacation was coming up soon and you never know. Now I know the likelihood of that happening is zero, but people are people and you never really know how things go with first impressions. If I do get the call, I want either ehowton or drax0r to call in even though they are from Texas and not Huntsvegas. For more info about the station, go to WVNN.com.

I should mention that the site has a live stream. I should further mention that Mr. Anderson will have the privilege of meeting the President today so in that pure respect, I'm one handshake away from shaking hands with the President of the United States. How exciting!

I recently joined NetFlix in large part due to irulan_amy's praise of the service. Thus far, I am thoroughly enjoying this decision.


I don't like TechSupport. It's fun getting paid to do noting and it's fun to help resolve issues, but I don't like not being able to really solve problems. Conversely, I couldn't stand programming the same program every day unless it was some project that I really cared about making more efficient, weeding out the bugs and making it an overall better and more enjoyable user experience. The irony of all this is I set up my Ubuntu box so that I could practice/learn Java and Perl yet I have not written a single line of code in over three years. I don't know. I want to make things more efficient but other then a massive database protype I've had in mind for years and an extension of a professor's Ph.D I don't have the desire. Maybe if I actually worked on real code...but let's not kid ourselves.

The only thing I really care about is film. More and more, I'm thinking I'd enjoy writing more but wouldn't want to relinquish control over my scripts and therefore produce and direct. If I were really lazy and made enough money early enough, I could write and produce and hire a director to do all the work. Shallow, lazy and lame I know. Maybe I'm still in that depressed emo growing pains phase. I thought I was over all of that. Maybe I'm a purist and thus doomed for a miserable life. I'm not complaining, just hypothesizing.

In other news, the emo kid has unfoundedly expressed his undying love of Ubuntu. I wonder how much CLI he does. Poor bastard.


It has been over a year since we have had Higgs news. :(

Now that I have successfully registered the domain name professortom.net, anyone who wants a peek at my scores need only leave me a comment. I will set you up with an SSH account on my box and send you instructions on how to obtain said scores.

There will be more to come. I will leave my comments on Costner for the weekend methinks.

I don't know what this means.

I don't tell you people enough about what goes on in my life.
And for this I'm more thankful than words can express.

my blog has been lackluster
Is: "My blog is lackluster."

I haven't shared every moment with you people.
You know everything is not an anecdote. You have to discriminate. You choose things that are funny or mildly amusing or interesting. You're a miracle! Your stories have NONE of that. They're not even amusing ACCIDENTALLY! "Honey, I'd like you to meet ProfessorTomn, he's got some amusing anecdotes for you. Oh and here's a gun so you can blow your brains out. You'll thank me for it." I could tolerate any insurance seminar. For days I could sit there and listen to them go on and on with a big smile on my face. They'd say, "How can you stand it?" I'd say, "'Cause I've been with ProfessorTom. I can take ANYTHING." You know what they'd say? They'd say, "I know what you mean. Woah." It's like going on a date with a Chatty Cathy doll. I expect you have a little string on your chest, you know, that I pull out and have to snap back. Except I wouldn't pull it out and snap it back - you would. Agh! Agh! Agh! Agh! And by the way, you know, when you're telling these little stories? Here's a good idea - have a POINT. It makes it SO much more interesting for the listener!

He said his vacation was coming up soon and you never know.
That's what I tell people when they ask if they can come work unix with me.

I should further mention that Mr. Anderson will have the privilege of meeting the President today...
Who the fuck is Mr. Anderson? Neo? Neo is meeting the president today? "There are only two possibilities; either no one told me, or no ones knows."

The only thing I really care about is film.
Eating's important. Oh, and breathing too. Breathing's good.

Maybe I'm a purist and thus doomed for a miserable life.
Why don't you just...do something?

That was boring as all get-out. Why does he have a North Texas cell number?

HIGGS! Fell off a cliff and died on impact.

Now that I have successfully registered the domain name professortom.net
Sure would be nice if you activated apache and put a web front-end on that domain. Might give you something to do and propel your business to boot. Now that's doing something.

There will be more to come.
I'm all a-titter.

Funny how much like Tomas this sounded.

Sorry. This comment sounds mean/annoyed. :-) Just saying.

Probably because half of it was his quoted text?

grammar
I'll concede the grammatical errors. I started writing the post on Wednesday but didn't get a chance to finish it until Thursday. Unfortunately, since I was at work, I didn't get a chance to proofread.

You know everything is not an anecdote.
First and foremost, I write for my own amusement, pleasure, and documentation purposes. As I continue to get older, my forgetter gets better and better. Therefore, if I had a thought that amused me or that I might want to remember later on, I make a note of it.

Your stories are not amusing, even ACCIDENTALLY!
Then why the hell do you keep reading my journal? Are you a closet masochist?

Here's a good idea - have a POINT.
Here's a good idea: listen sometime! I don't know how many countless times I've argued with you all because you don't get it.

That's what I tell people when they ask if they can come work unix with me.
Thanks for the vote of confidence. I don't actually expect to get a call, but I’m not opposed to getting one either.

Who the fuck is Mr. Anderson?
Do you follow no links of mine? Will Anderson of WVNN. I can't believe you were as immature to think I was referring to that abortion of a trilogy.

Eating's important. Oh, and breathing too. Breathing's good.
touche!

Why don't you just...do something?
Can I not have my moments of philosophizing?

That was boring as all get-out.
For once, we actually agree.

Why does he have a North Texas cell number?
nfc.

HIGGS! Fell off a cliff and died on impact.
I will not, can not
Bring myself to read
The unbearable, terrible
News of the HIGGS!


Sure would be nice if you activated apache and put a web front-end on that domain. Might give you something to do and propel your business to boot. Now that's doing something.
If I didn't think that were a test or a challenge, I would. Be that as it may, the box only has 512 MB of RAM; therefore, running Apache is a no go. The mobo maxes out at 1GB. stormreaver has agreed to purchase a matched set of two (2) 512 MB sticks of either PC2800 or PC3200 RAM and in exchange I will run Apache giving him a test bed for several of the websites that he has been commissioned to build.

I can't believe that you bitched about the domain before you even had a chance to use it. (Yes, I know you utilized the domain tonight but this comment was made before that utilization.) I suppose that after I run Apache you'll want me to run Ampache and then colo the box.


I'm all a-titter.
You're all a-titter waiting for my next boring, worthless post? Somehow, coming from you, that makes perfect sense.

You know everything is not an anecdote.
This was from a movie quote I was quite sure you'd know as I've used it approximately 100 times between our banter on my live journal pages, and your xanga page.

Do you follow no links of mine?
Rarely, if ever. Plus there is a HUGE difference between saying (and I quote), "...For more info about..." which suggests the reader could do further research on their own if they were so inclined, and "I'm going to start making direct reference to what's in that link so if you don't read it you won't know." See?

I can't believe you were as immature to think I was referring to that abortion of a trilogy.
I can't believe that you are immature enough to believe that my parody of your entry in general, and of a name not previously mentioned specifically was my own immaturity in thinking you referenced a movie I know you hate. That's why it was funny.

Be that as it may, the box only has 512 MB of RAM
There's a lot you don't know. I ran apache on my 80MHz, 64MB RAM HP/UX box. Hell man, I've run it on a 40MHz 16MB RAM SPARC box! Only half a GB of RAM? READ READ READ READ READ!

You're all a-titter waiting for my next boring, worthless post? Somehow, coming from you, that makes perfect sense.
Somehow, you not finding that funny, makes perfect sense.

Hmm... I should give you a long comment tearing this apart like Eric did, but I won't. :-)

Sorry to hear your working such long hours though. Also sorry to hear that Dat wouldn't help. Maybe someday he'll help out. *shrug* But then again I'm trying to be optimistic. :-)

I think that you are going to find the older you get the more things you will love my friend. You think you love movies now. But after getting into them... will you still? *shrug*

Either way... :-) glad to hear netflix wasn't the complete flop that I thought it would be.
