Did anyone else lose AIM at home? I lost connection to AIM at home and at work simultaneously and so did all my coworkers. odd. sorry to anyone I fell silent on.

Back on 3rd shift. All you people that lurk late at night need to hit me up on AIM and bug me. Or I’ll be bored. and that would suck.

I need one of these soooooo bad:

It’s a mobile alarm clock that finds a new hiding spot every night.

Yay for vacation. Had Reesey up last week. We bebop’d around Boston and generally lounged about. It was good to take a break, and even better to see Reesey. Special thanks to my grandmother for lending me her Camry so I wouldn’t have to cart us around in my stinky yellow CRX all week.

In other news, I got another SVX. This one isn’t as “nice” as my last one in terms of physical condition. instead of feeling like a “new” car, it definitely feels “used”. BUT… it’s in great mechanical shape and has a couple things done to it I always wanted to do to the other one. Most important is the the hideously tall final drive ratio of all SVXs is 3.54. This one has been replaced with a ratio of 4.11. Car folks will note that as a significant change for a car as heavy as the SVX. For the non-car-folks, that basically means my car is quicker around town but will run at about 500 RPMs higher on the highway. She has a few electrical gremlins, but I’m already sorting them out. it should be a-ok in no time. which leaves the paint. she wicked needs a paint job. I’ll be calling the guys that did Sean’s rally car.

I’m on days this week. this means I get to operate on normal human hours, but also means I have to be up at the asscrack of dawn. demi-w00t.

it was a nice day out yesterday. Warm and such. Kittens and bunnies were frolicking in the fields.

As such, I decided to leave the windows in my car open a crack to let all the happy warm niceness in.


I’ll let you fill in the blanks.

…and thus ends my first week of night shifts. Oddly enough I’m more exhausted today than the previous nights, even though I got more sleep before my shift (incl a bonus afternoon nap) than the other nights. No matter. I now become comatose.


also, ::zombie::

(00:21:29) iggdawg555: I’m not wearing pants
(00:21:38) danocronopolis: that’s a damned lie
(00:21:56) iggdawg555: there are lies, damned lies, and statistics. and there’s 90% chance that I’m not wearing pants.
(00:22:12) danocronopolis: lord, why couldn’t he have been the king of pants?
(00:22:37) iggdawg555: my pants and legs are a quantum pant-leg superposition. until you observe my pants, I’m not actually wearing them
(00:22:44) danocronopolis: pinegreex
(00:22:53) iggdawg555: indeed. point taken.


For reference, I was wearing pants. It was a ruse.

Welp… It’s 4am on my first night working 3rd shift at the new job. So far I like it. There’s enough busywork to keep me on my toes, but not so much that I get too swept up. I’m sure it’ll get busy sometimes, but this is a good nominal level. The attitude of “do whatever the fuck as long as shit gets pushed out on time” is very much my flavor too. The coworkers are very cool so far. I’ve absorbed a bunch and I’m starting to get the hang of working the systems. Methinnks I’ll like it here.

For those I haven’t mentioned it to, I’m working at Dimension Data. We basically babysit and troubleshoot other peoples’ networks and telecom. They’re paying me a bundle more than Sonoscan, and it’s much more my flavor of work. I’m on the night shift for a few months, and we’ll see where it goes from there. This may impact my WoW time, but I’ll find a way to deal =P. Oh, and I don’t work mondays =D. so yeah… I’m a professional geek again.

anyways… that’s my “I’m not dead” update.
