Well that's good. Fantastic. That gives us 20 minutes to save the world and I've got a post office. And it's shut!

Birthday Presents And The New Economy

So, as well as the huge party and all the money (thanks guys!), I also got several new computers, a house, a family, and a new job.

Curiously enough, all of them are virtual.

The party was on the MuNu forums (big thanks to Susie and Renata); the money was pengos, the Munuvian currency (slightly pointless since I own and operate the mint, but the thought is appreciated), the new computers come courtesy of Microsoft Virtual PC, the house and family come bundled with The Sims 2, and the new job is...

Well, the new job is interesting. I'm now working for an ISP again, after a break of several years. But I haven't left my old job, it's just that we now have an internet division. Except that we don't really have an internet division; it's all, well, virtual. All we do is run a web server and handle level one tech support* - and billing - and everything else just sort of happens.**

Strange place, this 21st century of ours.

* Is your computer turned on?
** Yeah, right.

Birthday Song

Happy birthday to me!
Happy birthday to me!
All hard disk drives suck,
As does Windows XP!

Mmm, chocolate...

The nicest present I got today was this:

20-year-old girl at office: (Sings) Happy birthday to you!
You're a hundred and two!
Me: Thanks!
Girl: So how old are you?
Me: Thirty-eight.
Girl: No, how old are you really?

Blub

Had a power outage here at Pixy Central this morning, and my two main computers are still sulking. Yuri, my Linux box, has at least come out of its room and is willing to talk (albeit in monosyllables); Kei, my Windows box, still refuses to open the door.

I'll be back in a bit.

Honey, could you pass me that wrench? No, the big one.

I Can't Believe It's Not Butter

Maybe I need to arrange a side by side taste-test, because right now I can't taste any difference between triple cream brie and double cream brie.

Holy Fucking Crap! My Goodness!

We're being shelled! No - no, it's hail. Holy crap!

And damn! The battery in my camera is flat! Damn damn! The whole park across the road is covered with hail, the roads, everything. Never seen anything like it.

Update: Good thing my camera charges fast! Photos should be along shortly.

Update: And my memory card was full. Let that be a lesson to you! Well, I charged the camera, copied everything off the memory card, and ran out again to take more pictures. The streets aren't covered with white anymore, but now there are people out enjoying our fifteen minutes of winter.

Pictures to follow.

Update: Help! My computer's broken!

Update: No, it's just the mouse. Bad mousie!
