New celly at last

Thursday, October 21st, 2004

On a whim I purchased the Audiovox SMT 5600 from AT&T Wireless’ online store. I ordered at 5pm Monday and it was here around noon Wednesday. It was already activated in the box which was great and spared me an annoying phonecall. I have heard AT&T horror stories but they have a 30 day guarantee so I don’t have much to lose.

If I decide to keep this phone I’ll be ditching Verizon, a thorn in my side for the past three years. I was happy when they were PrimeCo but after the merger it’s been a disaster. The phone selection sucks. The coverage has major gaps. The prices are too high. The commercials and corporate branding is disingenuous and annoying. …

Compaq Presario X1000 owners

Wednesday, October 13th, 2004

If you’re experiencing weird problems regarding video flakiness which leads to lockups and the inability to boot (harddrive light turns on and then everything stops), you may have a problem with the connector between your videocard and the laptop’s motherboard. Try pushing down hard between the 6, 7, and ‘Y’ key on the keyboard when booting and see if that helps. Also report your problem on X1000 Forums.

You know these things, they happen

Tuesday, October 12th, 2004

This combination photo depicts Viktor Yushchenko, Ukraine’s opposition leader and top presidential candidate, before and after his mysterious illness. On the left, Yushchenko is seen after he submitted his candidacy papers in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev on July 4, 2004. On the right, Yushchenko, with his face disfigured by illness, is seen speaking to media as he arrived in Kiev’s Boryspil airport late Sunday, Oct. 10, 2004. Yushchenko returned home from Austria, where he was treated for what his allies described as poisoning by his political opponents.

Unexpected death

Monday, October 11th, 2004

Probably not really news to anyone, but Christopher Reeve died of a infection from a bedsore. I was under the impression that he had made a lot of progress since his paralysis but I guess not.

Regular apartment life in 5.. 4.. 3.. 2..

Monday, October 11th, 2004

I’m typing this from my living room. That might not be interesting to anyone other than people who know about the situation in my “loft.”

The central air conditioning in my warehouse is finally complete. Since I moved in in late May I’ve been living in about 30% of the space that happened to have a wall unit air conditioner. It took quite a bit of quarrelling with my land lord to finally get central and now I am so super excited to just sit here on a sofa watching TV in a mostly empty room.

Now the decorating begins.
