i don't have any machines with a serial port and an os running to use as a terminal (or do i?). after many tries at getting an ip from my (thanks asemi) soekris 4501 via dhcp, and failing while using nmap to scan different subnets to find the correct network on which those interfaces reside, i found a proprietary serial cable that attaches to my mobilepro 780! fortunately i have netbsd running on there, and was able to use the program 'cu' to tap into the soekris. turns out soekris is failing to load properly, due to read-only locks on the filesystem -- imposed to prolong the life of it's primary disk, a compact flash card. in failed attempts to boot into single user mode, i recalled setting up a zero second boot delay for security measures, which happens to be irreversible. i then forfeited this installation to upgrade to a new version and circumvent further complications (or do i?).

using tftpd, pxeboot, bsd.rd, i successfully load openbsd 4.5, with the added benefit of a memory filesystem to surmount the issue of compactflash card death-by-writes.

In a juvenile attempt to cheer me up, my boss and I spliced in some random bullshit during the reel 4/5 and 6/7 changes in Fight Club.

If you watch it at my theatre this weekend you'll get to see Brad Pitt in the Inglorious Basterds trailer shout at you after Brad Pitt in Fight Club beats up that Italian dude in the basement where they hold fight club.

Yesterday: Got put on "sudden death" (scary movie sounds here) at work ... so, within the next 6 weeks if the managers decided I've fucked up (arriving late, not checking theatres often enough, etc) they can fire my ass. I went into the kitchen and was showered with praise and high-fives from the kitchen workers about my first "sudden death".

Today: After calling 7 movie theatres, I have a job interview/talk on Thursday! ... two streets over from my CURRENT job. Everytime I take a job it's farther away from my house than the previous one. :-/

modded out my bathtub against the plumber's wishes--now my tub doesn't catch hair anywhere in the slightest! i did this so i don't have to pull out disgusting hairballs by taking off the overflow plate. now all of the hair just goes down the drain and makes a mess in his pipes. now my tub uses one of these and one of these.

cleaned my bathroom to perfection.

cleaned my kitchen to perfection.

I just found a "track this bill" $1 in my purse. I went to the website and checked it out...apparently this bill has traveled 711 miles (from Gallup NM to Bozeman MT) in 1 year, 330 days, 9 hours, 9 minutes.

The comment the previous tracker left for the bill was: "Hampton Inn & Suites - Gallup, NM - headed to Santa Fe today - and Denver from there -"

My comment reads: "There's a shape drawn on the left side in pink ink...it's Alabama! :)"

Rode my bike uphill for nearly half an hour to get to an old teacher. Chatted and enjoyed the beautiful landscape. Took pictures of the beautiful landscape!

There was actually Nøgne Ø there, but I didn't have any of that. I had these beers and some others, I think:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duvel_Moortgat_Brewery

They were all pretty good. The Duvel was really good.

I think you should try for a better way to resolve your missing days. As it is I thought your images just hadn't loaded properly.

Also, the spacing between images on your verticals vs. horizontals is somewhat bothersome

You have to input the password to actually delete an image.

> I think you should try for a better way to resolve your missing days. As it is I thought your images just hadn't loaded properly.

Any suggestions?

I don't understand, do you want every thumbnail to have the same dimensions?

I just think there needs to be a way to maintain the nice clean grid look you have going on. Like instead of just blankness include an empty square or something that tells us, yes, this was intentional.

What I meant about the verticals is there is a tiny bottom border of gray that makes those out of line with the bottoms of the other images. And what if instead of a gray buffer on one side you centered the image in black? I think it would look much cleaner that way. Plus that particular shade of gray really reminds me of the color that shows up on flickr (for example) when the photo doesn't load all the way so it just fills in the rest with gray. Maybe you've seen what I'm talking about?

I really like the grid layout on white. It looks nice other than those two things!

Better now?

Getting the images centered is really hard if you want to do it in an elegant way (which I do), so I decided I want it to look like square frames of film, where the portrait ones are turned over.

indeed. i store each thumbnail's dimensions in the database then dynamically echo margin adjustments.

Yeah, I saw that. I'd like to have as few lines of code as possible, so I don't plan on implementing it. You can probably tell sappho was a huge inspiration in other areas, though. :)

from yesterday morning to today I spent a lot of time creating filters and labels in gmail, and my inbox has decreased in size from 600-something messages to 4! I have it auto-label a lot of stuff (but not skip my inbox) so I can just click archive and it will gtfo of my inbox and stay labeled appropriately.

i've been wanting a bottle and cage for my bike. i found this combo for under $4! i didn't want to pay $6 of shipping, so i'm taking advantage of free store pickup, using a store that's a 3-hour drive away. here's how i'm taking advantage: i'm going to let it sit in their store until they (a) get so annoyed that they ship it to me for free, or (b) i happen to be passing through anyway. :D
