Alright, I've got my power supply swapped out with some $40 piece-of-crap from Comp USA. Not at all ideal, but it will do the trick for the time being (and get me through the LAN party this weekend.

I promise myself that eventaully I'll force myself to break down and buy on of these and perhaps several other of their products. I swear, the high pitched white really annoys after a while...

Oh yeah, and I guess that means that my pics and other shared assortments are now available. Werd.

Well that's just wonderful...

I'm posting this from the console of my server because the power supply fan on my main box stopped working. Who knows how long it's been like that. I noticed a faint "hot" smell when I entered the ilab today after work, but I didn't really think anything of it. To make things worse, one of my hard drives made an evil noise earlier...I'm betting that it's related...and I hope the damage isn't permanent.

When I finally realized that the PS fan had gone out, I shut down the machine and opened it up to let it cool off. The power supply, most of the chassis, and both hard drives were so hot that you couldn't tolerate touching them for more than a few seconds. Just fucking great. I'm utterly surprised that the stupid box kept working!

So I guess I get to look forward to rushing out tomorrow and buying a new PS at a bloated price from a local vendor while I get this piece of crap RMAd. Wonderful. All this just two days before the first LAN Party in many months...

If you're trying to get to the pictures or anything else that I have hosted from my windows box, it won't be available, and now you know why.

Well, I haven't posted anything in ages, so I figured I'd give a quick little status update...

I saw Meg Lee Chin live at Klusoz here in Lubbock last Thursday!! What an absolutely amazing show! Pictures are available in the photos section. The show rocked. She, and the band, were amazing! I've now seen Seibold 3 times live in the last 8 months or so...heh. He's a pretty cool guy in person, don't let that Her DJ was awesome...I was completely impressed with how he turned the tables into a genuine instrument that added so much to the live performance.

Other than that, not a whole lot is going on. I still need to find work in Portland or Seattle. Please hire me. Thanks.

Aw yeah, nothin can bring me down!

I ate a quick lunch today and dropped on over to the used record store to browse around and buy a few things. Mostly fills of stuff that I forgot to buy when it was new, etc...

I made the ultimate score tho! I picked up Sonic Youth's "100%" single and opened it up in the store to check out the quality. Not too bad, but what is this...some scribbling on the inside cover. Wouldn't that be cool if it was signed? Nah, it's just some kids scribbling...look, there's some little doodle and I can't make out any letters in this other mess...

Then I look at it again later after I buy it...Hey wait, that's a 'K', and that's a 'G', and that almost looks like a 'Thu' with an 'M' stuck in later...I convinced myself that it's real.

I need an authority on sigs to tell me tho...so I snapped pics of the thing here and another one here. Check it out and let me know!

Anyway, it might not be genuine...but I have a sneaking suspicion that it is. I think I'm going to post links to the SY usenet group and see what the experts have to say about this gem!

The Blubber Box is in full effect. Be scared. Noise like this can hurt!

Oh yeah, and if you work for a high-tek company in Portland or Seattle, please hire me. Thanks.

The ILab has undergone some significant software upgrades...please bear with me if things aren't working 100%. Feel free to let me know if something is hosed.

Thanks.
