So apparently I haven't posted any new entries in a while. And it probably would have stayed that way if Phoebe hadn't just pointed this out.

I was supposed to spend the afternoon being useless in Sarah's parents' apartment. However, Quest Diagnostics had other ideas. They made me wait for over two hours just to pee in a cup so Lehman Brothers can have proof that, despite popular opinion, I am not on crack. Once I finally escaped, I barely had time to get pizza with Sarah before I had to make my way back down south. I didn't even have time to stop in the cookie store we passed (huge sugar cookies with sprinkles that were begging to be eaten).

Yesterday I finally got an A07. The cd tray is the width of the entire drive, instead of having the normal centimeter border. Because of this I had to remove the front cover of the computer case so the drive can open. It looks rather ridiculous like this, but the drive is NOT being taken back out.

Despite having put away all of my clothes and books, my room is still somehow a disaster area. At this point it's mostly cd cases and random computer parts. Maybe I'll get one of those cd tower things finally. I have more than enough cds to justify it, though I don't really want to exert the effort. I'm not going to consider the comic books to be part of the mess since they're all bagged and in boxes. If something's organized, its not part of the mess, right?

For three days, seaman resided on my dresser. I already knew that seaman was kind of noisy, but I no longer really notice it. I didn't realize that its also an excellent heater. My room was unbearably warm until I put seaman in the basement. The temperature suddenly dropped to humane levels.

I finally upgraded aim to 5.5. And the only reason was so Evan could send me some songs (Filter, who I've been listening to a lot recently). I wouldn't have bothered otherwise, but he was also able to provide me with a dead aim serial number. I'd been previously using aim+, but that doesn't work past version 4.8 of aim. [update: the serial number didn't work, so I went back to 4.8 after the files were transferred - I missed logging]

Now instead of working on something useful, I think I'll go downstairs. I'm thirsty and Leonard DiCaprio is fighting people (I'm a fan of fighting, not the actor).

deadAIM rocks. I'd been using a very old version of deadAIM for years until all of a sudden I upgraded AIM and it stopped working. So this weekend when I was at my friend David's, he gave me a serial number and I got to install it finally. deadAIM rocks.

I'm a big fan of AIM+, ever since Jordan installed it here. =) Nooo ads for meee!

You should make another Seaman... then you'd have Seamen

I find DeadAIM inferior to AIM+, and they interfere (I had both installed for a while).
