"I wanna be a mongoose cat..."
Kitties day 2:
Got home and they jumped into prosicated's lap for some pettings.
They hung out with us, hid a little bit, and were generally super cute.
Overnight; they didn't poop in the plants, they didn't break anything, and they were quite well behaved apparently.
oh my goodness.
Tech geekerie is coming out my ears.
Firstly, the Cowon / iAudio MP3 player I've been waiting for (for months and months) finally launched.
Not only did it launch, but it plays video (color screen) as well as MP3, OGG, FLAC, WMA, etc.
And for the same price (retail) as the ipods.
and live copying of data from other USB devices, like cameras.
Oh, and it looks cooler too.
How I do indeed want one. But I must wait, monies are not free.
Secondly, a piece of free software that blows my mind. I'm totally setting this up ASAP.
GEEKS TAKE NOTE! krues8dr, nata5, busytoby, and anyone else with multiple systems laying around, I'm lookin at you.
This amazing chunk of software emulates a Keyboard/Mouse across multiple computers, as ONE EXTENDED DESKTOP.
IE: Two winxp boxes, two monitors. You slide the mouse off the side of one, it goes to the other.
Also supports any mix of Windows, Linux, and OSX(mostly)
Also you can copy/paste across computers with different OSes.
mood: awestruck at the day
man, everything's broken here at work.
no good at all.
E-mail to coworker:
[co-worker in finance],
[User] CCed the helpdesk on the below issue that he e-mailed you directly about.
Can I close the ticket on it, or are you still working on the issue?
reply from coworker:
Were you able to help him with the issue?
well that was sobering.
I just scoped out home loans, because I've been trolling real estate on craigslist.
Thinking "Hey, renting's for suckers!"
Lendingtree's calculators say that the most we can afford within range of what we're paying for rent right now, would be a fabulous $175k. on a 30 year loan. Sure that could buy us a livable space elsewhere, but not Boston.
Ooo! Look! a basement 1bdr shithole for a mere $190k!
This town is insane for housing prices.
(disabling comments 'cause I'm just ranting and don't really want to discuss this.)
yeah, today's no good.
wanna go home.
