Nuking and Actions

by on Aug.15, 2009, under General

It’s not that nothing has been happening.

I just haven’t been writing about it.

Got some good stories, including the biggest hole in Zen Cart I’ve ever seen, a house I almost bought that was falling to pieces, and also, I bought a guitar.

But right now, I’m fed up enough with Windows Crapista.  So I’m gonna nuke it and hope it can, after this, go back to performing simple tasks such as showing me the contents of a folder in less than 40 seconds.

Killing Computers

by on May.18, 2009, under General

Why it it that even when you know how to tear apart a computer inside and out, you find that they sill fight you every step of the way on doing day-to-day tasks?

Mind you, my day-to-day tasks are more complex. But I get tiered of fighting.

Like how I managed to get EasyBCD to bork my Windows Crapsta bootloader two times over before Ikindagot the options well enough where they ought to be so I could live with it.

Or how newer versions of Ubuntu have more obvious graphical glitches on multiple monitors (four cursors, WTF?!) than older versions.

Or how Ubuntu suck just because it’s so minimalistic. (Tongue-in-cheek – it’s just too far for my preferences.)

Or how in this day and age it still takes ***** more than 25 seconds to show me the **** contents of a directory! On modern hardware!!!

My frustration is great an compounded.

Solid Chairmat

by on Mar.29, 2009, under General

Chairmat - SectionMy old chair mat died, the cheap plastic didn’t hold up well under the constant stress of my constant, shifting weight.

What to do?

Build one.

Using our friendly less-than-seven-dollar waferboard, I cut, beveled, and sanded it to fit custom into the space my old one used to fill.

Add some selective sanding to smooth it and add an abstract design…

Here it it:

Chairmat - Full, upright

The hard floor is sooo nice to roll on.

Also, unlike what you would expect, the floor isn’t too bad on the bare feet, but YMMV.
