I'm tired ... but I'll post anyway.

It's been somewhat busy at work. The volume of calls is high, probably due to Sunday's update. I can imagine that next week will probably be the same way, but I can only hope that I won't end up staying too late.

Luckily, I'll be able to go to bed early. I'm happy about that. Before I do that, I might make another static page ... seeing how I'm a bit of a nerd, I might as well list the names and specs of the machines in this house ... I have to kill some time while my group members read the combined document I posted for the online course I'm taking.

Eh, that was random, but what can I say? I'm not thinking clearly at the moment.

EDIT: Eh, maybe I won't post the specs ... it's kind of dumb.

Welcome to October

Yeh, it's hotter out during the first week of October than it was during the last week of September. Oh well.

Just got done doing a batch of updates for work. It will be bedtime soon.

I updated my iPod to software revision 2.3. I don't know what it does apart from add a "Shuffle Songs" option on the main menu, but that will be quite useful, as I always just play all my music on shuffle. It's nice to have 1700+ songs on the thing, though ... over 5 days of music. I'll never listen to it all in one day, that's the cool thing about it :D That being said, I haven't heard anything off the new Disturbed or Opeth albums, which are sitting on the iPod.

Anyway, now that I've labored through typing that paragraph, I'm going to bed :lol:

I just replaced my iPod's battery

I got the battery from It took literally 15 minutes from start to finish. The part that took the longest was getting the iPod open. Thankfully, iPodJuice supplies a tool that facilitates taking the thing apart, but getting the hang of taking the thing apart takes a minute or two. Now that I've done it once, I'm confident I'd be able to do it again for a non-mini, non-nano iPod.

The advertised battery life is ... well, much longer than 30 to 60 minutes, that's for damn sure :) It's charging right now, and I was glad the thing powered up, spun the hard drive, and showed my songs :D

Anyway, the weekend's coming. I'm glad. I'll be sleeping quite late tomorrow ...

Jeez, September's almost over?

Look at that ... it's the 28th already. That means I will have a nice surprise waiting for me in my checking account Friday night :D I've never had Direct Deposit before.

I'm going to start working with eMbedded Visual Studio C++ 4.0, developing something for my HP iPAQ 4155. I have to get the hang of it ... gotta find some documentation and stuff. I hope the GUI stuff isn't as much of a pain in the ass as it was with Visual C++ 6.0. Hell, it's the reason I used FLTK for all the user interface stuff in CS526.
