Employment

I got a job with a a cellular phone service provider to gather and analyze data from all over the island. It’s from 10pm to 7am, some people think that’s a bad thing, but I hate having to wake up early.

Wipe

I can’t tell if the problems I was having this morning were from an attack or not, either way I now have enough spare time on my hands to do a complete wipe of my server. Getting those pictures back off and pack on the server is going to be a pain in the ass.

The todo list grows…

I’ve been thinking about moving my blog to pybloxsom, and then making my own gallery using spyce so that I can just remove php from this server.
It’s a lot of work though, so I probably wont do anything. Nothing is pretty much what I’ve been spending my time doing lately anyway.

This is the first time I haven’t taken my ADD medication in almost a year. I forgot how annoying it is.

Upgraded once more

Now I’m running 1.5.1.

I got Adelphia Cable internet today, I’m not impressed, but it works… kind of. The main problem is how slow it is sometimes. Like if it had some strange QoS rule that makes http slower than anything else. There’s also the terrible ping times, my 56k had better ping times! (this is also sometimes.) In general it’s pretty un-reliable at least today. Big Jesus tells me that Adelphia is experiencing network problems, I hope so because I can’t play bzflag and that doesn’t make me happy. 😦

I’m going to really really try to be productive without using my medication, hopefully my brain will get used to it. Currently my plans are to fix my lyrics plug-in for Quod Libet and work on Background Channels. I love the idea of Background Channels because I’m always looking for good background pictures and just leaving my background on a channel would free me from looking for good ones.

I’m also going to have to find a job soon. My dad wants me to work for him probably pulling cables and stuff. Although it would be a good way to get exercise I really want a job where I can practice my Japanese. That’s nearly impossible here though.

Eating too much

Ever since I’ve got here I’ve been hungry the whole time. I need to stop. Tomorrow morning I’m hitting the little gym for at least 30 minutes.

Today I visited my old high school, Cupeyville. It was pretty cool seeing the teachers again. After that me and Alberto played Halo for a couple of hours and then I went to play a few games of DDR. I’m enjoying the vacation so far, but there are things that need to get done. My dad told me that I’m helping him at his job tomorrow, it’s not going to be fun but a little extra money never hurt anyone… or has it? I’m going to e-mail the VidaLinux people to see if they are in need of anything that I can do. I would love to do some work for a Linux distribution, even if I don’t like it that much… There web-site looks like it could use a little cleaning up in my opinion.

The slowness of my internet connection makes working on my site a real drag. So I don’t think I’m going to be doing much of that. My computer seems to be waiting for me at the post office so I think I’ll be getting Cable internet soon. And maybe a Usenet account.

I’m glad I have time to catch up on some 6-12 month due reading.

Again…

The server was compromised again. great job script-kiddie, you ruined my already sucky day. Since there’s only one important file on my site, I’ve re-uploaded that. And I’ve started making a local copy of all the pictures in my gallery for the full wipe I’m doing ASAP.

The bad thing about Debian for incompetents like me is that sometimes the dependencies apt installs go unnoticed…
