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.

Appease Thy Landlord, Part I

[ #2238 ]
The first third of the money for the water bill problem is due today. I still say I'm not 50% responsible (I mentioned the toilet problem to him months before that, but I couldn't pin down the leak until December and I didn't want his jackass plumber in my home during the holiday season), but it's kind of irrelevant; legal fees would cost a lot more than half this water bill.

Still, it's a good reason to sell my Sony PlayStation and the games for it. I figure with a turbofire controller and probably around 10 games, I can score at least US$80 for it. That would help a lot for keeping gas (er, petrol) in the car.

I gotta say -- I've got a really, really good feeling about this semester. (Even though I'm in a web design class the textbooks of which don't even mention perl.) I just think I finally got the hang of it.

Speaking of things and hangs of them, I need to play with my Dutch translator some more. (Actually, it's just an interface for sending a list of Dutch words to a translator page that only deals with one word at a time. It just strips the translated words out, returns them in a file, calls it a translation. As if.)

Oh, and the VA! Turns out my apps got sent with the wrong claim number. (Insert appropriate symbol-based cartoon foul language here.) The helpful VA person at the parent campus oblingingly dealt with both this semester and last semester.

  • Good news: I'll be getting all my benefits for the last two semesters.
  • Bad news: I'll be getting them in eight to twelve weeks.

This means that, yes, once again I'll be providing nothing. :\ I realize this seems lazy -- hell, perhaps it actually is. However, I view my academic situation as too dire to endanger at this point.
