The Vent Thread

Postby Otohiko » Thu Nov 25, 2010 12:03 am

37 hours to my comp [i.e. PhD area/comprehensive exam]. Yes, the one that I failed once before, meaning this is my last, final, no-way-back chance .__. All the worse that my timeline this week really slipped due to grading distracting me, and I won't get around to writing those mock essays I planned to prepare for it until tomorrow.

Today begins finals week and I just came down with a cold yesterday.

Are you fucking kidding me, immune system? No thanks for the assist there.

So when I'm not at school, I install 12 volt car accessories (starters, stereos, GPS systems, etc). One of the most common things we have is people coming in with 5-10 year old remotes wondering why they aren't working. My first question to them is usually "When was the last time you changed the battery in your remote?" The most common response is "IT HAS A BATTERY!?" or "It's only X years old, it shouldn't need a new battery!" I then tell them that they should be replaced every year, which we usually tell them when we install.

Another, less common thing that people ask, but far more stupid, is "So does the car use gas when I start it with the starter? You know, cause the key isn't in the ignition" or a variant "What's the gas milage on a starter?"

Fuck, I could go on for hours about the stupid shit people say. People are stupid as shit.

My puppy got an early Christmas present yesterday. He got spaded. Now we've got 10 days of keeping him in solitary (and keeping him from licking himself) so he doesn't mess his stitches up :( Extremely hard as there's two of them and they LOVE to play.

/He/ got neutered. And even if he were a she, she'd get spayed, not "spaded". >_>

AAAAAARGH!!! I hate not being able to add money to my PSN wallet just because I have an APO address! I can't even use my stateside address because all of my cards have my APO address and they won't validate :mad: Looks like I'm off the the BX to buy a PSN card :roll:

I start back at school in a week and my schedule this quarter sucks D=

at school four days a week with morning and night classes. I'll be getting up at like 6:30 AM on some days and getting home at like 11PM on others. I dont even know how 6:30 AM looks like. I'm just lucky that those classes dont fall on the same days.

The joys of entering senior year in college. 3 quarters to go D=

SMART error on a less then a year old hard drive on my mirrored RAID for my editing projects. I purchased a replacement drive just in case this would happen so I would have a spare ready. It's rebuilding now.

Remember kids, data redundancy is a good thing. It's a good investment if you value your data. I should be up and running again later today and I'll be sending the failing drive back to WD for replacement later this week.
