Wang is my hero! Please, if anybody has any information regarding the big "wang" seen yesterday on the east loop in Lubbock, TX, please let me know. I'll accept additional sightings as well! Who is this mysterious "Wang"? Is it an Asian fellow, or is it simply a reference to some schlong? The question must be answered! Elmo will talk to you soon.

My setup is so crappy. The ilab/noisybox setup is so cheap, it's sad. I waste more time dicking with stuff that I really shouldn't have to... So I discovered that when I clicked on a link to a largeish image on my website, my machine would reboot. Ok, let me state that again for emphasis -- I could click on a link in my web browser and cause my server to reboot. Remotely. Reliably. Yeah, very bad indeed.... I couldn't recreate the problem from outside my network, so I started poking around some more. Swapped the 100Mb NIC with an old 10Mb one. No more problem. I suspect that my POS server just couldn't handle sending data that fast, now that I'm running on a 100Mbps switch. So horrible...but hopefully a little better uptime can be expected.

Well, my server apparently still likes to reboot itself...even after I replaced the power supply fan (that I suspected was causing the reboots). Blah. So I suppose I'll return that Maxtor IDE controller and start saving for a new system. Oh fun.

Noisybox.net had some minor outages in the last few days while some network schtuff was being done and a new power supply fan was being installed (no thanks to the cacs at Rat Shed)... More later...

Oops! I acidentally bought a Belkin 8 port 10/100 switch. That's cool. I also bought a Maxtor Ultra ATA IDE controller, but I really have no idea yet if it will work in my Linux box. Cross your fingers. Perhaps I'll get my machines rebuilt yet...

Ok, I haven't really said anything in a long time...so I suppose (again) that this is my futile attempt at babble babbel babel (ala the 27 significant tr00ths): 1) www.yourethemannowdog.com finally gets it. my hero. 2) ??? 3) MAME is just about the best thing around. Buy me a cabinet already. 4) I live here, and I still haven't been to ground kontrol. maybe tomorrow. 5) Meg Lee Chin photos are up 6) The -C operator in perl will tell you when a file's inode was last changed. Duh. 7) Let's hope these things are better than the shit I'm currently using... 8) Tho the two are not entirely related, you should hire alphafight and go install qnx 9) The Doors + Bauhaus + The Cramps + Jesus and Mary Chain = Spacemen 3 10) FileZilla cures all your Windows FTP client needs. period. 11) If I had access to anything physically connected to hotmail, I would pee on it. 12) Dammit, I deserve it 13) WinPicProg is free, while the p16pro thingy is $$$...let's hope it works when I try it. 14) SuperPiMP is truly pimp. 15) You can get lost reading World Power Systems. Ok, maybe you can't, but I did... 27) At least one person in the world will never forget EBN (think 'television, the drug of a nation...') and you should definitely check out gnn if you don't already go there every single goddamn day, and PLEASE somebody please tell me where my favorite site went before I cry...I spent forever looking for it....

Yes, I know it's been a while since an update. I've been writing some software on the side, so expect a release soon in the art or computers sections shortly. That is all for now.

So the links page has a nice little addition -- our lord and savior jesus hovering ominously over the lower 48. You know you're going to burn in hell, so just relax. I've also put cowstick up in the art section just for fun. Popsicles are yummy! The projects page now has a wish list section. This should provide you, my humble viewer, an outlet for those massive wads of Benjamins that keep filling up your pockets ever-so-annoyingly. I know you find wealth so frustrating, so here's your chance for relief...just pop on over, pick something up, and send it my way. And furthermore, if you haven't been to dustinplumb.net in a while, you should scope that cause I tossed up some new material. I also tossed a few new anchors in the links page. Somehow some things of importance were forgotten in the whirlwind of stagnation. All apologies. I can't wait to see Meg Lee Chin [again] on Friday...snap! This is not a home page. This is a web site. Please note the distinction.

Sheesh, it's already September. Time flies when you're old. My last few posts were written in a pretty foul state of mind...my demeanor was meaner. I'm not feeling nearly as bad as I was. A p4 2.0AGHz drives my new main machine. I'm very impressed with it so far. I cannot say enough good things about the Gigabyte 8iexp motherboard. It's got everything you ever want. I really have to say this is probably the nicest piece of PC equipment I've ever purchased. In fact, I was so pleased with this new setup that I stuck the "intel inside" sticker on my generic case. Heh. I still have a bad taste in my mouth about AMD, but I may try and pick up a cheapish CPU to replace the old one and do the upgrade shuffle. So not that much is new. I spent a week in Lubbock on business but managed to hook up with some friends. It was a nice change of pace. The inlaws are in town with the Recreational Vehicle. It's nice to see them again. If we can convince the rest of her side of the family to move up here (hint hint) perhaps they will come up here permanently? I caught Sonic Youth live in Portland on 08/30. Rad! I had completely forgotten that Jim O'Rourke was playing with them. His addition really creates some new sounds. The set wasn't very surpristing (cause Ev already gave me a good idea about what they're playing live right now), but the show really kicked some ass. 2 encores though? A little strange. Hmmmm....I suppose I can live without Bumbershoot since I saw them down here. I posted 4 new sets of pictures in the photos section, some newer than others. Enjoy and come back soon!
