Business Cards


I'm pretty happy! I made the text a point or two too small, though.

10 Things I Hate About You

I really liked that movie. Every time (e:Drew) posts I am reminded of it. You better stop, Drew, before I put it on the NetFlix queue and force (e:James) to watch it.

And I like a lot of other really dumb popular movies where people in their mid-twenties play 15 year olds. And I tend to cry easily at ridiculous movies. I am really not fit for being exposed to popular culture.

Also, I am 28. I only have another year where I could conceivably move to LA and find a job playing a teenager on a new sitcom on the WB (or CW or whatever it's called now). I better get cracking.

I should be working right now, but I felt like yesterday was Friday and that would make today Saturday.

New Business Cards

I ordered new business cards last week. They are just like my old ones, except with my new number, and a new blue back with a dandelion instead of the old orange back with a daisy.


They should be here on Tuesday!!! I can't help but check the tracking every hour.

(e:James) and I have ordered from them a few times and have always been happy. Of course the framing is the expensive part!

Programming Stuff

In Ruby 2.0, a new hash literal syntax (like javascript!)

{a: "thing"} # ruby 2.0

{:a => "thing"} # ruby 1.8

array('a' => "thing") # and PHP

Decisions, Decisions

Oh Estrip, give me your advice:

Should I give up my business which is finally starting to come together after 2 long years of struggle, and go back to school and try to get a nice permanent job sometime next year at Roswell with (e:Enknot) and (e:Paul)?

Or screw security and keep working at Roswell a couple days a week for the next year or two and try to be awesome the rest of the time / the rest of my life as my own man? After all, big things could be in store!

Lifetime security versus trying for the stars? I have to choose what to do in the next month.

Edited to add: Well thank you everyone! There's really no need to make a decision this month, now that I think about it, I'll just keep trying to do it all :)

And Another Thing

I really dislike using Windows. Every little bit of it rubs me the wrong way. It was all I used for 6 or 7 years, and then after about a week with my Mac a few years back, I've never looked back.

This is one of the ideological reasons why I hate Windows: if you run Windows update to get security fixes, it makes you revalidate your Windows installation (it checks your serial number to see how many times it's been used, if it's pirated, etc), and it can lock your computer down to reduced functionality if it thinks there is a problem.

Once you initially purchase software, you should never ever need to go back and verify that you are legit. It's like all those lame warnings on DVD's or before movies telling you not to pirate, when you've clearly just paid for the DVD or movie.

So - the problem: the Windows validation servers are down right now, and may be down until Monday:

Nice. Innocently run software update, and bam! there it goes. Way to treat your paying customers.
