- I worked a long time today :) Dr Picone took everyone at the office out
to eat at Little Doey's. He was really suprised that I have never been to
there before. The barbeque (sp?) was decent but I think that the Pig Out Inn
in Natchez is better. Their baked beans sucked compared to mine (my mother's
recipe) but the hush puppies were really good.

- About time for an update. I turned the big 20 last monday. I started the
day off right with a Physics final. Wheeee. Definately been a stressful week.
- Last week I moved my site to a new server and some of my text was

- Berryhill, Chris, Jaime, and I went to Clinton to see Natchez High
play soccer. Clinton beat the guys 13-0. That was expected (maybe not that
bad) because Clinton is usually in the running for state champ every year.
I did get to see Erin, who came over from MC, and Chad Jones, who had came
down from DSU, so it was not a total waste :) I even got to see David lay
out at least three of the Clinton guys without even getting a yellow card.
The fifth is his birtday, so I had bought him a copy of Pink Floyd's The
Wall on VHS. After the game the four of us stopped at the Olive Garden off
of County Line in Jackson. Olive Garden sucks majorly compared to Old
Venice in Starkville, the food was crap. Our waiter sucked too. So I will
never go to another Olive Garden if I can help it. Richelle, being the
sweet angelic person she is, had let me take her car, because I do not
need to stress my car out too much right now. She could not go because she
had a class in the late afternoon. I filled up her car, a 95ish Corrola in
Starkville and again in Jackson. If my roughish calculations are correct,
her car made close to 40 miles a gallon from Starkville to Clinton and
back to northish Jackson which is pretty damn good. We made it back to
Starkville around 1ish and now I am updating this page. I think I should
go to sleep now :)
- The MSU BYU game was horrible. BYU did not receive nearly enough
penalties. On aies. On almost EVERY play, they were guilty of very blantant
holding, yet were never flagged. Also they lined up illegally for all of
their field goals and extra point attempts and were only penalized the
second time they did it; they only got a warning the first time. If there
had been decent officials, MSU would have ended BYU's undefeated season.
- I have been so busy recently. Everything is so hectic, rush, rush,
rush, turn stuff in now......

- Wheeee. State won the Egg Bowl. Looks like we will have a pretty good
season next year with Fant. The statistics of the game are
Basically the stats I like are that Manning passed for only 213 yards by
attempting 36 and making only 16, not to mention 3 interceptions. Fant
only made 21 attempts, making 14 of them and had NO INTERCEPTIONS. By my
math Fant completed 66.7% and Manning completed only 38.8% while throwing
interceptions 14% of the time. Maybe this will keep Ole Miss from a bowl
game. I cannot wait until next year because without Madkin, State should
go nearly undefeated.

- So now it is Thanksgiving morning. Wheee. Today pretty much felt like
a holiday even though I worked at ISIP for a while. I fixed a lot of
entries in the bug database. Good thing that we went over SQL in CS just
recently :) I think I just might have impressed Dr Picone a little. I
so. Something I have been wondering is if he ever reads my website. Maybe
he will tell me now if he reads this. I have heard that previous web
designers for ISIP have written not such good things on their personal
websites while they worked at ISIP.
- Bell South DSL blows! Our upload bandwidth is so chocked that if
someone is uploading a file of decent size, our latency to the next server
out is 2.3 SECONDS!! That is absolutely horrible. Our latency with no
uploads hovers around 22 milliseconds. I really bet that the problem lies
in the crappy 3Com internal DSL modem we have. Probabally sucks at
transmitting and receiving at the same time.

- Last night we went out close to the winery around 2 AM where there
were not too many lights and watched the Leonoids. It was really neat.
- I have been trying to get a new OS on my laptop for a few days now. I
but the install locked up at detecting hardware. Tried
but it locked up too. Then I tried
6.2, 7.1, and 7.2.
Every time the Redhat install would get to the PCMCIA detection (which is
at the very beginning of the install) and not do anything else. So I tried
7.2, 8.0, and 8.1. Mandrake apparently does not like mys not like my
keyboard because it usually takes two presses to get a key to read. So
then I tried
It installed perfectly. The only bad thing is
PCMCIA support is non existant so no networking at all for me. Then I

wonderful, but there is no driver for my network card.
to have a driver for my card but it would not install correctly. Now I am
which seems like a really neat OS. AND they support my
network card. If it doesn't work I am going to be pissed.

- I had fun tonight. Berryhill made a pot of *really* strong coffee
around 10 and we drank the whole thing. Then we went riding around and
eventually made it to walmart. I bought a bunch of neat stuff, the most
important thing was a roll of 16 guage automotive wire. When we got back
around 11:30 I went out to my wonderful Camry with a flashlight and I
rewired the speaker that used to be part of the alarm system. I grounded
it to the firewall where the speaker is attached and I ran a wire into the
car. I connected a hot wire to the lighter and put a push button switch
between the two. Now whenever the ignition is turned on and I push the
switch, it makes a really loud wailing noise. It's really great. Now I
just hope that a cop neverp never sees me do it and gets me for my bluish
headlights and siren for impersonating a police person. Anyway I bet I can
scare the crap out of people once I get the switch hidden.
- Last week sucked. It was way too busy and I did not feel like I got
very much done at all. Maybe I can be a lot more productive this week.

- I got to see the Boston Brass Thursday night. The trumpet players are
just insane. The band is going to play Caravan with them today at pregame.
- I am now running the 2.4.13-ac6 kernel. This is the first time I have
ever tried a patched version and not a main number version. Also this is
the first time I have tried Alan Cox's source tree.
- My 256MB Micron RAM came in yesterday. That gives me a total of 512 MB
of main memory. hehehe

- I had to make 100 four page double sided stapled brochures for ISIP today.
Luckily after a few tries, I figured out how to make the almighty ECE copy
machine do all of the hard work for me.
- I have the 2.4.13 kernel running now. I compiled my SCSI driver into the
kernel so maybe it will get better performance whenever my hard drive comes in.
