I feel cheated...

today's the day,
yet there's no Hardy Heron Final. I was so hopin to do that last nite.
instead i replaced a battery, and discovered it's not working! great... just spent some dough on something that isn't functioning properly.
i think that it's a computer problem, not a battery problem, for what its worth.

gosh, now what am i supposed to do about ubuntu?!? did some browsing through the website though, especially in the merchandise department. they have some kik-tater teeshirts available for this release, when they release it.
i's got a 97.04% in my C++ class, that's cool. Now I need a job writing programs that are useful. hoosgot work for me?

ah yes the very sweetness of life!

so, m'kay,
this is my last C++ class, the final exam. If I pass this I can put that i have C++ experience on my resume. now i just need to get involved in some open source project to keep my skillz sharp, and to learn more. right now i'm reading through a book designed for people who know C to get ninja in C++ and that's alright. just pokin' about in it mainly.

also ordered a new battery for the old school lappy that runs FreeBSD 6.3. when it arrives i'm gonna seriously reconsider using that one all the time, the cooling fan works better.

go figure.

that was when laptops were men!

First Fruit!

If you consider squash a fruit, my garden is bearing fruit!

first one came out yesterday, and i planted two more seeding maters, some betterboys to be exact. some of the romas are in bloom, and soon we'll be up to our garterbelts in tomatoes!
i can't wait.

pepper plants are doin' fine too.

i silently thanked a foraging bluejay yesterday i spied chompin' on some insects round the garden. birds are awesome like that.

some notes on C++
it's lame compared to ruby, but at the same time it grows on you. the structure takes a while to appear, but at least it's not as bad as something totally lame like visual basic at least.

lets face it, you'll not be using gedit or anything sans smart tab complete to write a vb program, yet w/ c++ there are shortcuts.

ruby is still my baby though.

it's a wonderful mess.

Silly ideas...

#1 grab a turkey, a live turkey, and start asking people if they want to have a lil' wild turkey in their beverage.

#2 Grab an old school fone, cut the end off, place in a glass of coca-cola, and tell people you are drinking jack-n-coke.

#3 Through a party, insist it's 1999. Wear bright colors.

#4 Don't eat for a day, tell people you are remembering the alamo.

#5 See number 1.

ps, check out the BASIC blog.


#6 spll wrds wtht vwls.
