    I expect to see a rant against them in half a year! :D

    Iosai and I have been plotting an evil scheme to time-warp them into believing it is in fact the fall again, so they just give us ANOTHER hour.

    That wouldn't be very efficient... And I'd worry about the stability of the time line if we just kept on adding on hours without thinking of the consequences. Still... another hour to do science in. Have you thought about trying to bribe the Institute instead of hatching evil schemes?

    Evil schemes cost less. More money to buy strippers and booze to fill the extra two hours every year with.

    I think every four years we should just make them give us an extra day.

    Only if we all get that day off for strippers and booze.

    (Including the strippers.)

    Saw Rock of Ages this week.  The plot wasn't the best, but it was okay.

    The singing however was great.  As a fan of classic rock, I was enjoying every number.  Tom Cruise made a viable rock star.  I really enjoyed Julianne Hough, and she worked well with whoever the other dude was.

    Surgery on Monday yay

    no more gallstones. ever.
    A horde of beings swarms about Your bulk. They are diverse in shape but are, without exception, horrific to look upon. Claws and teeth without number flash across Your vision, and nebulous masses of compound eyes and writhing tentacles and spindly antennae all twist around You. With the merest thought, You open wide Your maw and lazily swallow one.

    Huzzah, I've finally gotten my desktop up and properly software'd.

    Now if it only had more than 512MB of RAM, which I'm leaving as a Rave because it amuses me how outdated it wasn't once.

    .oO---~---Oo.

    "Perfect. Please move quickly to the next post, as the effects of prolonged exposure to the signature are not part of this test."

    NARF!

    I just ordered 8 GB of RAM today for my laptop :D

    4 GB doesn't leave enough free memory for me anymore on Windows 7, since I do a ton of multitasking.  8 GB will serve me nicely, especially since I will very likely be upgrading to Windows 8 Pro while the special $39.99 offer lasts.

    Finally switched to Firefox. Is pretty cool. I irrationally miss the little bar down where the url of the link I was mousing over goes. It was my little buddy. Still, he had to be sacrificed for the greater good.

    E: Update. There is an add on that brings back the status bar. Yay.

    Despite my heavy involvement in this year's political season(on both national and local levels) I am SO glad to have all of the campaigning over with, and I think everybody shares in my sentiment.  Maybe we can have a break for a month from the bickering and the annoying ads :D

    I must determine how to do that on my G53J. I'm constantly riding around with 90% of my RAM in use and it makes things ssssllloooooooooow.

    My laptop only has 2GB of RAM and I never get even close to using that. Granted, I use Linux and a very lightweight WM, but still.

    I love that moment when things change from dead silence to the sudden sound of torrential rainfall.

    Manufacturer and model? I should be able to figure out what RAM you need.

    Whee! There is going to be a solar eclipse in about an hour from the timestamp of this post and there is very little cloud, should be almost perfect viewing conditions for it...

    We had a partial eclipse here in Brisbane this morning, was pretty awesome! I took a photo but it's hard to tell except for the red glow on one side of the sun.

    From what I heard the best view was in Cairns, which got a full 100% eclipse.  Here in Auckland it was only around 90% eclipsed.

    MOAR! :P

    That's the line, but there is still a model number after the G53JW.

    Today my Strategic Design class had a concept presentation for our client. There were eight groups in total, and as part of the presentation, all groups, teachers included, were to vote on the best concept, as the winners would get to visit the factory of the client and make chocolate.

    Our group won.

    With 68 points.

    The joint second place had 17 points.

    4x as many points. To win by such a landslide... *swoon* I am so very, very, VERY happy right now.
    Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
