There is something particularly thrilling about stuffing connectors in a hub and, for the first time, starting up two computers at home. And having them run, connect, etc. I know a lot of people have rooms filled with computers, but I've always considered myself a Geek Lite, happy with just one, never needing to tinker much. Firing up my soon-to-be server makes me feel...serious. Cool.
What a fun idea. I'll give it a try, but I don't remember much:
That was pretty damned fun. Mayor Vera had a big "millenium" party in the Square, and I went down with Dave and Megan and we ran around taking pics of strangers all night. It was packed, it was crazy, a smashing time was had by all. Here's one of the more classic pics of that night:
I'm pretty sure I spent this NY at Kelly's. We played games, watched Dick Clark, and went on the patio to make noise at midnight. Quiet fun with friends.
I don't remember anything before that. Boy, is that pathetic or what?
I just got a taste of having my site go down because BlogVoices is down. That's the end of that experiment. There's an old proverb that goes something like: "Once burned by it, a cat will never again sit on a hot stove. Nor a cold one."
Okay okay, I know I haven't been updating. Sorry, I've had my head on another site. Plus, I get to dive in to the considerable adventure of running my own server soon. I'm excited. I've changed hosts more times than I care to mention--it will be nice to have it all under my control. The service will suck, but at least I'll know who to blame.
MSNBC is running a "Headliners and Legends" marathon. While puttering around the house, I've watched Michael Douglas, Jim Carrey, and now Bruce Willis. What is the fascination with celebrity? I've always had such disdain for it in others, and hated it in myself. Oh hell, maybe I should just give up and subscribe to People.
Happy happy, merry merry, yadda yadda. No, I'm not at all cynical about Christmas. It's just that mine was over a couple weeks ago, so I'm just having days off to sit at home bored. I'll live. But ya'll have a fantastic holiday.
Hmm...do I smell a whiff of automated updates? If not, somebody's being obsessive today. Of course, all the entries are interesting, so don't miss any!
"People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives."
