Well, so..

Thanks to helpful peeps including Dan S. and Chris M., I now have my wordpress blog up and running and crossposting to Livejournal. Perhaps I’ll set it to also crosspost to myspace.. wouldn’t that be fun?

Lately I’ve been feeling like digging up old friends.. I’ve managed to find a bunch of friends from relatively early in my childhood via MySpace, and I’ve been finding contact information for and spamming people from Seattle.. I sort of vary between intensely-social-wanting-to-be-in-touch-with-everybody and intensely antisocial and wanting to hide in my cave and write software.

The drug that I was using to help me sleep has now more-or-less conclusively been linked with my continous stream of nightmares, which leaves me with the difficult decision of do I return to being a often-insomniac with mostly good dreams, or do I return to having nightmares every night but being able to sleep predictably and on schedule?

Went to Seattle for the 4th and set off many large fireworks. Much fun was had by all. Thanks to Bruce S. (if he reads this which I doubt) for hosting me and other considerations.

Back in the swing of work, slowly.. trying to work out the kinks in some code that involves Flex talking to PHP talking to STOMP talking to Perl. Very multilingual.

Finally got around to convincing the Slingbox to talk to the network again after renumbering. There are still some machines that have some issues with talking to the net. Also finally shut down Gateway and AIXER – I hate to have machines not up and talkable-to, but it was just getting too bloody hot in my garage. I’ve got a managed power strip that I need to put out there so I can turn on and off individual machines as appropriate. Especially needed because my friend’s BSD box (and he’s constantly commenting on how much more reliable BSD is than Linux) seems to crash about once every month..

Bought tickets for the UK to visit Enyc and Maddy.

Not much else to report. Currently my religious investigations have me poking at unitarian universalism – I glance at these people every once in a while, and every internet ‘find your religion’ quiz I’ve ever taken has said that they’d be my first choice. I have to say I agree with just about everything I’ve read about them so far. Eerie.

It was good seeing T0ry & Meg, too.. I hope Tory will come down and do a music video or record a new track or something with me.
