Freakin' Perl 
Wednesday, 26 January, 2005, 00:34
I wish Perl was working on this server ... I'm really, really getting sick of updating this site through a text editor, and the one blogging script I'm most comfortable with requires Perl to run.

If anyone knows of a good PHP blog script that uses flat text files (a-la Greymatter), let me know. (NOTE: This was written before Simple PHP Blog was used on this site)

Comcast ... 
Tuesday, 18 January, 2005, 23:30
With my internet connection's death time rapidly approaching, Comcast left an automated voice message on the machine that basically said they may have fixed the problem "remotely". I guess that means that something was wrong with this particular node, not necessarily with the box outside the house. To test this out, I am downloading SuSE Linux 9.2, which is approximately 3.2GB in size. I know this will take more than the 1.5 hours I have until the connection dies so, if that does happen, I know I shouldn't call to cancel Monday's appointment.

I am concurrently downloading about 5.1GB of other assorted data from random Chicago-area servers (well ... not really) in order to keep the test going. After all, I do have to make up for this past month's crappy internet connection somehow, right?

I just hope Comcast is right and the issue is resolved. I'll give it a couple days. If it still is broken, they will continue to hear from me.

Happy Birthday, Julie 
Monday, 17 January, 2005, 14:52
First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIE!

Now ... yeah, between the hours of 7:00PM and approximately 8:46AM, I have no Internet connectivity. How interesting. Strangely enough, the outside temperature rose above 10 degrees F at exactly 8:46 this morning ...

Furthermore, I'm uber-pissed because I couldn't play HL2 last night! Seriously, I guess Steam is good at preventing piracy, but if I want to play HL2 at night and my Internet connection is down, I should still be able to play HL2 dammit! I don't want to get a modem and a dial-up connection just so I can play HL2.
