Welcome to October

Well, no pictures of last week's Good Times. Oh well. Happy October.

So I hate this season ... you know, autumn. It's depressing. The days are getting shorter, the leaves are all falling off the trees ONTO MY FREAKING CAR, and the semester is dragging on. That, and the presidential debates are underway ... I'm not posting anything regarding those, though.

My UPS was driving me up the freakin' wall this week. One morning, it woke me up 4 times between 1AM and 4AM ... I got pissed off and unplugged the thing. The power wasn't even flickering or anything, it was just beeping for the hell of it. So, I figured it was time to put it out to pasture. I haven't done that yet; it's sitting about 2 feet to my left at the moment.

This was a very rare morning update, seeing how it's almost 9:00AM right now ... I just got back from the gym, too. I'm gonna go take a shower and, perhaps, post another update later.

Good Times?

Good times to commence in approximately 5 minutes. There is a possibility of pictures. Don't hold your breath. If you do, I will not be held responsible for your death

Still alive

Okay, the T accounts didn't eat me. They did eat the electricity at UIC. I didn't have school on Tuesday and Wednesday due to this fact. This has to be the only time I have been angry that I didn't have school ... it took me nearly 16 hours to do that Accounting homework and I couldn't turn it in! Unbelievable.

There was a hardcore show last night that was pretty sweet. 8 bands for $10, that's how I like it. Some of the guys got a little too excited while dancing and nearly knocked the soundboard over. That would have sucked.

I know it's been a while since the last update, but there's really not much to say at the moment. Oh well. We now return you to your regularly-scheduled South Park watching.

The Ts are haunting me

I have concluded that T accounts will eat me alive. Yes, that's the part of Accounting I'm doing right now. It's not so much the fact that debit and credit are totally counterintuitively named when they're on the Asset side of the oh-so-famous Accounting Equation, but the fact that so many of htem can pop up at any given moment it's not even funny. Also, coming from a CS background I have no clue where to stick these Expense accounts. I think those will also join in the evildre eating, along with the T accounts.

That being said, it's kind of hilarious to try and get the correct results for the first homework assignment.

As for CS, I'm finding it hard to believe that MIT doesn't make some of their published papers available for free online. Like I'm really going to pay $10 for a paper I'm going to use once. Give me a freakin' break. I also find it hard to believe that UIC, despite being yet another university with a computer science program that has interest in VR (understatement of the month), does not have access to these same published papers. What's a guy to do? I should have driven to MIT over labor day weekend and kicked all of the faculty, staff, research assistants, etc. in the nuts.

That's all for now ... the T accounts have successfully consumed my state of alertness.

Autumn is coming 
Sunday, 5 September, 2004, 01:00
So it's Labor Day Weekend now, the last unofficial weekend of summer. Bugger. That means autumn, the most depressing season of the year, is upon us. Ugh.

I've been gaining a little tiny bit of traffic on this here website lately. Verbal pimping does kind of help. Also, spreading boxes.wmv around all over the place helps tremendously :-)

No progress on the CMS yet, I'm trying to get my thoughts on it should be organized. I don't want to download a pre-made package because then I have to worry about checking other websites for security updates and stuff. I'd rather just write my own and keep it private.

So happy Labor Day Weekend, people. I might not update unless something cool happens.
