Well, this may be one of the geekiest things I have done to date (just wait, there's plenty of time to top this...heh), but I ported my resume to voice XML format. That's right, just call 1-800-555-TELL and press 103212 and listen to my resume.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, the 3212 portion of the extension is props to a Negativland song featuring Jello Biafra.

So I finally got around to putting a line-out on the old Casio keyboard I scored a while back. The 10k pot controlling the line out volume is overkill, but it works pretty well. I tinkered a bit with it hooked up through the noise swash and a small mixer my bro gave me a while sounded pretty damn tight. I'll put something real together eventually. >:)

And on a very confusing side note...Lobo sent me strangest, the most intense thing I have ever seen in my life. Don't click that if you're easily's insane. I don't know how else to describe it.

Well, that's one single person who even noticed the massive changes I made to the site design. :) Thanks John! I love you man.

No, your eyes are not failing you...the Infiltration Lab has undergone some significant design changes! Version 2.0 I guess...not that anybody is counting.

This is something that I've been working on and planning for a little while now. The changes may not be too dramatic, but I think the site has a nicer feel now. I was never that fond of framesets, and I think the new use of PHP gives things a more unified feel.

Most of the changes have been implemented, but I'm sure there are still problems. If you see something that is broken, please let me know.

I haven't written anything in a while, so I guess it's time. There's not a whole lot going on right now...blah. To summarize the things that people keep asking me, though: Yes, I'm still looking for a job in Portland or Seattle. No, I don't really have any leads yet. Yes, it's getting annoying and depressing. I am, however, enjoying my subscription to Netflix that Stacy got me for my birthday a while back. Finally, I have a chance to scope some of thost great flicks I've missed (like this one), or the excellent gems from the past (like this one, or this awesome one). On a still-yet-even-more-depressing note, I'm going to throw this banner in here (um, this could be the first ever banner on the ilab, wheeee) because I think the situation is completely fucked and I hate to see internet radio shrivel up and click this already:

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.
