8:02 am - worries for the G4
One thing that bugs me about the modern age of home computing, is the need to upgrade. It seems that once you have your computer running the way you like, its time to upgrade again. Hardware, or software, it's a continuing process of change. This is where I stand today.
I look at my my G4, running OS 9.2, and I smile. Knowing that it runns just the way I want it to. All of the preferences, themes, and sounds are setup the way I like it to behave. My internet, mail, and newsgroups, all run smooth. Just the way I like it. However, change is on the horizon my electronic friend, and this time its a big change.
I have found that if you want the newest software on your system then you must also have the newest OS. So I am setting forth to upgrade to OS X.3 today. I know it will take a long while for me to set it all up the way I like. I know that it will take time to learn all the finer points of this OS, and even longer to tweek it out with all the bells and whistles. It lends itself to a strange diacodamy. On one hand my comfort zone is breached, while on the other, the joy of a new toy on xmas day.
Lets hope for the best.

7:40 am - Oh great, the design I like the least.
You are a Galaxy-class Explorer, a top of the line
luxury-liner with teeth. You prefer refinement
and appreciate beauty. You're well-apt at
diplomacy and are trusted to handle crises.
Despite a changing world with new, you still
have a reputation for unparalleled excellence.

11:42 pm - Con Time
Well the time has come to once again do the con thing. However, be fore this thing gets started, I have to go to Washington to help move the Auction idems. This will truely be a warp 10 up and back trip. with no time to stop at the Apple store or Dream Dressers. My bigest Problem is the fact that I HATE the inner city.
I can't deal with the crowds at Walmart, how will I deal with an entire City?

I have a fear of large crowds and tight places.

current mood: sick

3:48 pm - Room For Change
Not too many of my friends know that I suffer from Claustrophobia. The only problem with that is the fact that I am also an avid Pack Rat. So from time to time I have to do a major dump run. This weekend was one such run.
I had too much stuff in my office. Here is the short list.
6 Computers
6 monitors
2 desk
1 bookcase
3 printers
1 scanner
1 telivision
2 VCRs
45 lbs of old used scratch paper / bills / cigarette butts
6 items of glassware ( filled with cigarette butts )
2 file cabinettes full of useless crap other than files most of it in hiding for ten or more years.
Need less to say I needed to do a major dump. It was too much stuff for an 8ft by 11ft room. there was no more room.
So I got it all down to ..
1 desk
1 bookcase
2 computers
2 monitors
2 printers
2 file cabinettes holding 7 years of files
Once again I can breath in my own office.

current mood: peaceful

5:01 pm - Just add beer
I really cant understand why the poorest people this town would spend every last penny they own each week on beer. Case in point , I have one guy who comes into my store twice daily for a 24 pack of the cheepest stuff. He lives in a one room apartment in a run down building, Walks every where he goes, because he can afford a car. I have seen this fellow walk around a parking lot looking for loose change, just to buy more beer. I guess their will always be a lower class out there some where.

4:50 pm - Ok, so it's been awhile.
But , now I'm back. The Last few months have been very strange, even for me. Lets see, I enrolled in a Pro Wrestling school, run by WWE hall of famer Jimmy " the Boogey Woogey Man" Valant. You would think, at 39, I would know better than to get into the ring with some of these guys, but you only live once.
I payed off my truck, thats one bill off my back. Wow Now I Can Buy Food!
I have started to look in to going back to College.
I have started to produce some new Art pieces for the art show at Rissing Star.
It's good to see just what you can do when your not on the net 24/7.

current mood: pleased

11:08 pm - Being Anal is a Good Thing, Really!
one of the first things that most people learn about me, is the strange way I view the world around me. Like the fact that I find the term "Asshole" to be quite endearing. If I was to call some one an asshole it truly means that I hold him/her in high regard. Most true assholes are very good at the subject that makes them truly anal. Most of my anal brethren will boast of their ability in a certain subject, sometimes quite loudly. Just so you will know who ask question to later when you need them. Many anals will gladly give you their viewpoint on any matter , even if its not in their line of expertise, feeling that the Garden of Knowledge grows best with plenty of fertilizer.
So, remember the basic rule of assholes,
Their useful at least once a day,
They do one thing very well,
They make a little noise when they raise a little stink,
They are mostly full of shit,
And only a silly little fag, would try to screw with one.

current mood: crappy

10:36 pm - Piss off you vomitus bag lady.
One of the things that really boils my broth, is the Lottery in Virginia. These " Instant Scratchers " , to be more to the point. I have noticed that they seem to be well suited for the poorest of Americans. Instant gratification, or instant loss of a well earned buck. But the people that seem to be hooked on them the most, Are the ones with the least money available. Like the ditch digger that has worn the same unwashed jeans, with the hole worn out of his back pocket from his snuff can, for the third week in a row. You've seen him before driving his rat trap 1983 chevette with the undersized spare tire on the right rear,and the sheet plastic duct taped over the hatchback. Yeah thats the guy.
These are the type of people that for some odd reason seem to think that your local 7-11 is now an annex to las Vegas.
They will stand there for hours buying ticket after ticket. If they win, they buy more. If they lose they buy more.
Not untill they're wallets are empty do they even think about the bills they have waiting in the mailbox at home. Or the fact they are basically paying out three times as much to the State of Virginia in lottery as they do in Taxes.

9:53 am - So it begins
Yeah I know, They said it couldn't be done. However, The facts are plain to see, that I have indeed started a live journal.
Yes I surprise even myself. The one guy in the world that wouldn't even write his mother a letter, while he was in the Air Force. Now plans to type his thoughts into some global computer network. Is it me or does that just sound a tad bit nuts.
