Thought processes.

It's so much harder to write a stupid character than a smart one. %gt;.%lt; I find Isabella getting smarter by the chapter. Must explain this somehow. Ah hah! I know... It's the wheat fields! They make people stay as smart as they were when they were first exposed to the wheat fields. ::nods:: So as their effect wears off, she'll get smarter and smarter until she reaches the intelligence level of a sixteen year old! Oooh, but she's been trying to get smarter for the whole 16 years while she was under the influence of the wheat fields... so maybe she'll get as smart as a 32 year old? Hmmm, nah. 16+8... umm.. 24 year old? ::shrugs:: How smart are 24 year old princess?

IBCorner Status Note.

I'm going to go ahead and install 10.3

I'm expecting problems and complexities. Hopefully I won't have to reinstall all the perl modules, perl, mySQL, and other unix binaries that I have installed, but if I do, that may mean IBCorner will take longer to come back up.

All static (non-IBCorner/non-cgi/non-perl generated) sites will be available, I'm moving them over to my sister's iMac.

Change in plans. Gold Master install disk that had propagated over BT some time ago (and still is propagating) doesn't boot. Copy protection? Probably. Downloading the other version that's out there. ::sighs:: Meanwhile, I'll using Pacifist to extract the files to a separate hard disk so I can get a feel of 10.3 and see if I really want to go through the pain of upgrading.

Really, Apple, why must you charge for system updates. So mean... ::sulks:: You already make us pay so much more for hardware... Granted, it's much better than PCs, but still....

Oh, and so IBCorner will remain up for a while longer. And I can continue to listen to DDR music.

Well, files have been copied over. But it refuses to boot, so I still can't see the (supposedly) beautiful 10.3. ::pouts immaturely:: The 10.3 Server version CD does boot, however. And the installer is Pwetty. But it requires me to reformat a drive to install. And there's no way I'm doing that... there's some 25 GB of anime on one disk, 125 GB on the other, and all of my work on the main hard disk! And I can't back all of it up to CD either, I don't have enough CDs.

::sighs:: Woe is me.

Broke 10,000!

Ya know... I should go and finish off the homework, even though I could probably get most of it done in two hours or something...

But I don't think I'll have time to write later this week... ::pouts::

Have yet another version...

...of 10.3. Will be trying again now. ::sighs::

Homework, Homework, Homework.



In other news, I'll be out of town from Dec. 18 to Jan. 1 somewhere in Taiwan. Somewhat depressing, as it means missing most of my (probably last) winter break in MD. And not getting to see any snow. And missing all the parties, if any, this winter break. And missing out on some time to work on whatever nasty projects teachers throw at us...


I wanna stay home alone for the 12? 13? (can't count... too lazy) days.
