I set up an icecast/shout stream on my little IBM laptop. I have 1.5GB of MP3’s sitting on this machine and it took only about 10 minutes to get a stream up and running – check out this article for more info.
Today I went to call my mom and tell her that I had shipped all of the boxes. Guess what… “We are sorry – the circuits are currently busy” – it’s been busy now for 2.5 hours! I hate phone companies!
It took me a while but I finally got around to watching “Raging Bull”. It was a LONG flick – but good. I’m amazed at how much weight DeNiro gained for the last half of the movie (you can’t even recognize him!). I might even have to go out and buy it myself.
Seth told me that I start everything with “Well” or “So”. Thus, I’m going to try and mix it up a little bit. I’ve been packing up and sending things home. $200.00 worth of shipping thus far. Hopefully, there won’t be any more shipments – I might go broke!
Some of you may know I’ve recently decided to give up caffiene. Being the major Mt. Dew freak that I am this has been a large undertaking. Saturday (my first day) I could hardly thing the headaches were so bad. I’m now recovering from Day 2 which was a lot easier going. I’ve found that the easy thing to do is drink Sprite (caffiene free) – it’s kind of like the Patch…
Well… I went and saw “Dude, Where’s My Car?” today. Earlier last week I saw “Dungeons & Dragons”. I was expecting the first to be a GREAT movie, unfortunately, it didn’t quite live up to it’s expectations. Don’t get me wrong – it was really funny at times, but didn’t live up to “Road Trip” or “American Pie” IMO. The latter was a dismal portrayal of a game so many geeks cherish. I, personally, wasn’t a D&D person, but I can imagine it’s cooler than the movie depicted!
Well, as many of you may know, I have this HUGE case that I used to house Bertha in. Well it’s been shed for a LOT nicer case. It’s not quite as big, but it’s a QUALITY case! I bought the Antec Performance Series SX1030 case. It has a hinged lockable side panel, a front lockable door, 2 3 inch fans inside the case (not to mention the monster cooling the beefy 300 watt power supply), big feet, and (my favorite) removable drive bays – meaning you just push in the clips and remove your drive – NO SCREWS! Oh, and with Tux on the front it looks really sexy.
