This is my new vaio mini-top

I already wrote about the mini Vaio that I got from Holly. Its only 300mHz but it runs Suse 8.2 well and I can code and surf the internet on it. Plus it only weighs about 800 grams. Here it is with Tina using it. I ordered some new parts that should come early this week.

The Digi-Swan

Has you'll heard about "The Swan." HEre is the web site It is a new show on Fox televsion where two women "transform" each week with the help of plastic surgery and then compete to get into a beauty contest. It is truly insane.

However, I am waiting for is the cyborgian version of this show. I would be the first to admit that I need a little digital enhancement. How about a flash card slot in my forehead. Then after all of the digital enhancements, the contestants could have a network query or compilation contest. Fastest wins.

Check out new audio journal


This is a great way to record a situtaion and talk about it. My example sucks, because I am not really doing that. I am simply talking fo rthe sake of talking. My mother bought us DDR for Christmas but it was on backorder and such and just arrived today. I was refering to DDR. the playstation 2 game, that is what I meant by machine validated danicing. It feels confining and lacks the intrinsic freedom that real dancing provides. However, it is slightly addictive.

At first when I added audio journlas in mp3 and wav format I got nervous that epopel would simply talk and stop writing. That would suck because then nothing would be searchabel and people could not quickly read a journal. They would have to wait through all the ums and pauses. I thought however, it is an important step in developing the elmwood sound database. It was also a way for people to eventually be able to tie their cell phones into their journals. Have fun with it. For now the limit is 100k. It might go down to 75k or up. WHo knows, I will have to see.

Cats Tend to make my life suck


Cats- Someday they will kill me.

One time in Italy I almost dies because I stopped breathing and my lungs filled up with blood. I am so alergic to cats that I often get allergic in crowds becasue so many people have them. So wehn I am not out tonight, everyone will know the cats made me stay away.

There have been so many events during the last ten years that have been so fucked up due to cats being on earth. I am sorry for all you cat lovers but I hate them and would dance in the streets if they were all rounded up and exterminated.

Elmwood was so alive today

The noises from elmwood were so intense today. Even more so than yesterday, although yesterday was warmer. Today had the Friday advantage. People seemed so alive after being freed from the constraints of winter lifestyles in Buffalo. You could hear people laughing and singing, bikers with bells, children yelling, dogs barking, music in all the open windows of the cras. I realized that we actually live in the perfect location to record the sounds of elmwood onto a CD. Considering that the sounds of elmwood are rather limited except during the 4 months of summer, it might make an interesting compilation.

For people who do not live in Buffalo. Unfortunately, I can't say it is much different than the noises of any medium size city in which you have open windows in cars and houses. Here that noise of the interepenetrating realities becomes music to our silence over-exposed winter ears.

Gotta jet as so Terry and I can pick up Robin and head on down to see Soyeon's newest installation at the Ceepa gallery. I will post pictures when we get back.

My first Linux mini-top entry

This is my first journal entry written from the mini-top (super-mini laptop) that I inherited through Holly. It is not the Vaio from my previous journal entry but another vaio, equally as small, just a little older. After about 18 hours of intense work, I was able to get everything up and running on it. It is a dual boot Windows XP pro/ Suse 8.2. I added a 40 GB drive, bought new RAm, and ordered a new battery. I even got the wireless usb dongle to work, which wa smore of a feat than you can imagine. You may finally see me out and about on elmwood once the battery arrives as this will allow me to work on the go.

Holly told me that she typed a short story using this device over a summer. I cannot imagine typing a short story, as my fingers are already freaked out typing just this journal entry on such a small keyboard. However, I think coding should be fine as it is not as repetitive. Or maybe its more repetitive, thank god for the bluetooth keyboard, as if I did not already have enough cancer rays flying through my personal space!

Weather on Elmwood

The weather pattern on ELmwood is incredibly irratic. Yesterday it was about 40 degress. Today it is supposed to be 81. I think this says something about the weather patterns changing. Obviously some winds and bucking back and forth and wreaking havok with our climate. I wish the 80 degree ones would stay.

kimya at mohawk place

I got to meet kimya and she is everything I dreamed she was. I am too nervous to talk to her anymore but I got a new album and a t-shirt.

The three of us got t-shirts, two were custom made for the occasion. Here is a pic of us with Kimya. She probably thought we were freaks, becasue I was all, "I am your biggest fan, blah"


If we ever end up hosting our big (e:strip) party, - will ask her to come along.

XHTML Compliancy

I spent the afternoon finally transitioning the site toward XHTML 1.0 compliancy. It is compliant now. The only thing that is not is the bgsound if you view the site the Explorer 6 for windows. The PHP simply detects you are on the "defective" browser and uses the non-compliant code to make it work. You can check the ocmpliancy yourself by clicking on the XHTML compliancy button on the elmwood journal under the links.
