They seem to happen at maximally inconvenient moments.
So I guess if it's dark, freezing, raining, on a dual carriageway, almost exactly half-way home ... that'd be the perfect time?

I'm playing a game of Neptunes Pride (http://np.ironhelmet.com/
) .. several players have dropped out, leaving 3 of us carving up the AI housekeepers and generally avoiding conflict.
But of course, only one can win the game...
The penny just dropped, and my galaxy map just updated to look like one of the giant screens in crystal mountain.
Naturally.. I'm responding as advised by the W.O.P.R. .. but I can't help but wonder about the 3rd player who isn't in the line of fire.. will the advice of the movie be true in the end?

|Finished World of Warcraft
Last night, we killed Kil'Jaeden the Deciever.
We missed killing Illidan to 'end the game' by a week (killed him the week after the sunwell came out). Got the timing right this time :)

This'll make no sense to 99% of people, and not even to everyone who plays WoW:
We killed the Illidari Council last night.

Grab the nearest book, go the 123rd page, find the fifth sentence and type that and the two sentences after it.
It will be highly visible to the rescue services of air and sea, too.
On land the new life jacket will be invaluable. Hillwalkers and mountaineers will welcome the instant shelter it can provide, and its ability to roll and bounce safely, if rather dizzily, down from untenable rocky fastnessess.

Having unearthed some very old episodes of Full Metal Alchemist.. and getting firmly hooked, it would seem that the only interweb-available episodes are in the 30's-40's.. (I've seen 1-5).
Does anyone know where I could find subbed episodes of 6-40..? :)

something not to do if you're feeling smart:
get into an argument with a FAST cold-caller about what "software theft" is. (theft being the removal of something from someone, copyright infringement being unauthorised copying, and licence infringement being use of software after the paid for term.. they claim it's *THEFT*.. all of it)

new office furniture today. (woo woo). wednsday will understand why this is a notable event ;)
major new pain is that now the cold air sheeting off the window now flows across the desk over my hands. where previously it just fell on the floor and got ignored.

gah. does anyone else get nearly the whole way through a yawn, then 'something' goes wrong, and you're left unfulfilled.. and still needing to yawn.

|somewhere else to rant
go into the machine room - there's one port free on the gigabit (core) switch.. i haven't moved the main servers in yet. the cow-orkers have just been plugging desktops into it and haven't deigned to mention that it/desktop switch are full.
and then caroline *insists* that her windows domain controllers need to be plugged in as they're designed (gigabit network cards). really. how much data does a w2k DC shuffle around these days? [same person as said you can't have a server without duel-xeons, and servers have to have raid controllers]
i want a kick-bag.
We've got a spa. splish splosh
