JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [perlmonks.org], and here [javajunkies.org] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [blogspot.com] and my other blog [blogspot.com]. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

A couple of rum and cokes. Stress has been killing me lately.

I am way too stressed. I blame this on my inability to play Halo*, because shooting things has always been very therapeutic for me.

Monday, in an attempt to provide myself with distraction and exercise, I will be going along with a friend of mine to the gym he goes to. I have no details but it's better than sitting around Monday night, obsessing about heading in to work in less than 12 hours. :\

I'm probably going to head offline in a few minutes and attempt to install Slack on this machine. (I understand that it has a partitionless install option, so I'm probably going to do that first and leave X out so I can fart around with the console, and get some idea of what the installation process is like.)

I'm not remotely tired at this point.

* The ESO** got it (the XBox) in what the SO politely terms "the divorce". I got the disc, though, so it's only a matter of time until I get an XBox.

  • Halo can be quite therapeutic, but holy cow can it eat time. I get into an online game and suddenly 2 hours have gone by.

      My previous experiences with playing online were pre-broadband 56k modem stuff, so I've got quite a bad taste in my mouth from R4nd0m 5h1tHedz doing dumb shit constantly, and haven't felt the DEEP NEED to get broadband in order to play online yet. Although I do miss the furious trash talking. :)

      Oh, eventually I'll have to do it, just to see what it's like, at least. At that point, I will probably find out that I have absolutely no spare time left for trivial things like eating and sleeping. Gaming used

  • Good luck with the Slack installation. May it work as you wish!

    Take it easy at the gym if you haven't been exercising much. A little can be a lot if 'Long time, no gym'.

    • Believe me, I'm not planning to jump in and attempt to finish a marathon or anything. Just some movements in a desperate attempt to make my body reclaim lost muscle tissue.
