So for those that don’t remember, my bike got stolen on the last day of classes spring semester. Which was a bummer, cause I had no bike this semester. However, UOSA has a bike lottery where you can sign up to check out a bike for a semester. There were plenty of bikes for the people that signed up, so I got one.
I went to pick up the bike today and looked over the selection. Most were kinda dumpy but there were some nice ones too. I saw one that looked about right and didn’t have anything wrong with it… but I couldn’t take it; it didn’t have its registration and tags yet. Oh well.
So I went back this afternoon… and ALL the good bikes were tagged with people’s names only the dumpy ones were left. I saw the one that I had wanted. It had been tagged.
With my name :O the nice UOSA secretary Carol remembered which one I had wanted and tagged it when it got its registration sticker. Thanks Carol
It needs some work… it doesn’t shift gears, and the seat is really low (my knees can touch my chin). But nothing a bit of fixing up won’t handle.
Micro lab tonight… :’(
Collect birthday comments now. Write later. I’m off to class.
So Matt decided that Opera worked better for him than Firefox did, and switched accordingly. And I say, more power to him; Firefox was crashing a lot for him and Opera appears to be working quite well. Too often I see people get caught up in fanboyism and forget that the point of an alternative browser is not to become the dominant market force:
FIERFOX IS GRAAT!11!!11! LOL Y WUD U SWITCH?!?!??? (?)
But the point of an alternative browser is to provide freedom of choice. As long as a browser supports the web standards I covet as a web designer (e.g., Internet Explorer is not a browser, and no, Avant, Maxthon, et al. don’t count either), I really don’t care what you use
It’s the same with operating systems. Elliott came into my room today when I was writing a bash script and was like “Huh, MS-DOS?” No Elliott, I just run Linux. “Oh… but you’re not a zealot about it… I didn’t know.” Because I use the tool that’s right for the job, and nothing more. Linux is great for my programming and PIM needs… when I need games, I switch to Windows. None of this self-flagellation because I *must* destroy the Evil Empire… I use what works.
Today I was trying to do out a calendar for ZAP, and KOrganizer kept crashing when I tried to print. So I exported to vCal, swapped boots to Windows, fired up Outlook, printed. All good.
The PHPiCalendar website is back online! It’s been gone for almost a year, with the message PHPiCalendar website is willingly offline until further notice. I just checked it on a whim today and they made a new release yesterday! :O
(I use PHPiCalendar at http://sethkinast.com/calendar/)
CS Teacher: “And so this is what I call the bulldozer rule. You start over here and KILL EVERYTHING IN YOUR WAY until you are done. Easy, see?”
Micro Lab TA: “So you gotta warsh your hands to kill the, um, critters and stuff. It’s safer that way.”
Brandon: “I sold my soul for the Denver Nuggets. But don’t worry, he apparently couldn’t tell the difference between a soul and a jar of salsa.”
I spent about an hour talking with Amanda Price last night; I’d never really said more than “Hi” but we really had a very good talk (she was in my French class last semester and was in this one but had to drop it). We hung out in Cate eating until about 11:30, when she had to go get to bed because she had an early class the next morning. I was about to leave too when I looked over and saw her purse :O she had forgotten it!
I waited around until midnight, when things shut down. She didn’t come back. I looked her up on StalkerNet and called the phone number listed, but it was last year’s number.
This morning I had just gotten back from Discrete and was sitting at my computer. All of a sudden I was tacklehugged from behind!
“AHHHHHHH YOU HAVE IT THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!”
Poor girl; I felt really bad that she had been looking for her purse all that morning and didn’t even go to class because she was so worried But she was glad I saved her
