Get a dog. Dogs love going for walks.

If the landlord would allow it, and if I had the time/money, then sure.

Yeah baby. Playing games with my better system! It is so nice playing games not at slide show pace! It is great to kill the time while various analysis run over on the laptop. Freakin schweet as multi-tasking going here. I am getting major stuff done; it feels great. Which is nice as the cold last week put me behind a little.

Cool... I was actually thinking about putting together a list of inexpensive-yet-doable components for a future system... though I don't consider Jetway at the top of the list at all for motherboards, I happened to find one for $29.99 (yes, you read that right, one cent short of $30) that can support a core 2 duo .

Sorry about no gaming PC or car. No car is not that big of a deal if the weather is nice and you do not live far from work....but you do...so bummer.

Eh, it's not all that bad on Tuesdays usually - most weeks on Tuesdays I'm taking the bus into Boston, rather than all the way out to Framingham.

EDIT: In live chat now if anyone wants to meet there.

has made me appreciate walking... a lot. You might think that by that statement I don't exercise a lot. Okay, well, you'd be right (sadly).

Anywho, beautiful night tonight for a walk, out here. 68F, just a few clouds hanging but otherwise clear skies, no rain, maybe a little humid... but great to just walk about. Too bad the two nearby malls (one with a Best Buy) close at 9pm. The one in Natick closes at 10pm, or 10:30... ah well.

Hope everyone's enjoying their start to the weekend... in whatever way, shape or form you like!

My mother had seen Marcel perform two or three years ago.. said he was a great mime performer, even for his age.

Speaking of student idiots and the like:

http://www.boston.com/news/globe/city_region/breaking_news/2007/09/mit_student_arr.html

Mistake #1: Don't say a word to the authority figure when s/he asks about the shirt and its electronics that you're wearing. Especially if this inquiry takes place at an airport.

Mistake #2: Turn and walk away after mistake #1.

On one hand, I applaud her for doing something "creative" with her clothing from a techie/geek perspective (though it's nothing mind-blowing... no pun intended?). On the other, she seems to be missing a bit of common sense and courtesy... I mean, one asking about a plastic circuit board strapped to another's chest wasn't out of line...

EDIT: Of course, reportedly in this case, the police were ready to use machine guns... heh.

34. RE: Oh boy Sep 19, 2007, 21:43 Dan =0)
 
I LOVED the Sisters of Mercy, though I think I lost their CDs when I moved to the States (grrrr).

Lucretia, My Reflection was one of their most awesome songs.

To be honest, your band sounds pretty good, but Eldridge (Eldritch?) their singer has their really deep, gravelly voice and it sounds kind of strange to hear a girl singing to that music. And you need LOTS more bass.

But hey, it sounds a lot better than when me and my buddies did this, drunk out of our gourds, as an impromptu karaoke one night.

Creston

Agreed, either I (with the keys/drums/bass going on the iBook) was underpowered, or both guitar and voice were overpowered.

As to the "tone" of her voice, yeah. I was told by former bass player as he was recording in my bedroom studio that I should be the one singing that, as I can produce a very similar timbre and presence to that of Eldritch.

Way off topic (what else is new?), but our new band video's been put up on Youtube.. covering "Lucretia, My Reflection" originally by Sisters of Mercy, playing at the Abbey Lounge.

You may want to cover your ears after the first 22 seconds.

Seriously, lemme know what you think

I'm the guy with the headlamp glasses.

Sorry... hazy brain.

*checks*

Okay... VERY hazy. It's not in my order status page, which means I didn't purchase.

Gah.

Well, that's $50 I don't have to worry about spending...

I could use something like that right now. Minus the load.

EDIT: Suing God: Whoa, buddy. Don't bite the hand that presumably feeds you. Seriously, though, I'm wondering if this might reverse all those warranties that include "act of God" statements. "Nope, can't blame Him anymore for that sorta thing! We still won't cover ya, tho!"

EDIT2: nin, I still gotta hold off on getting a new(er) rig. Oddly enough, my newegg.com order for the amd processor hasn't yet been... processed? It's been two weeks or so since I thought I'd ordered it...

4. Re: Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buff Sep 15, 2007, 18:06 Dan =0)
 
Shouldn't that then be

Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo?

EDIT: in other words, it just makes no sense to me, in the original construct, that the two noun phrases "Buffalo buffalo" are placed right next to each other as the first four words of the sentence.

I'd love to be convinced that it's grammatically correct, but it just seems to me that it's not with the absence of either a verb between the second and third "B/buffalo", or a "that", "which" etc in that place.

So what? Still no mention of the Crysis beta that started last night???

Eh, just not as important for me, as I don't have a system on which to play it, and might as well focus on other things that are as (if not more) important, for now. As heretical as that may sound to some here.

Eerie to think that I find my first day at the Boston University Stats and Consulting Unit for my second week of work (at BU / Framingham Heart Study) starting out similarly to today - it's a Tuesday, and I'm at BU.

Hope everyone's well today.... and Warhawk, stay between the lines!

Did you not just buy a new PSU?

I did take it back, got all my money back.... decided I'd just buy all-new at once, minus the case, if I can, at some point.
