Use That Dead Hard Drive
A couple months ago my external hard drive with all music on it died. (I didn't make too much of a fuss on the blog here because I didn't think it worthwhile to complain about it.) But I've finally found something to do with it. One of these days I'm going to take it apart and turn it into a windchime!
A Great Experience
Whew! Dinner's finally over! OK, so dinner was at least over by 8pm, but now it's 10:30. There were a couple guests over, but we spent all of the last three and a half hours around the dinner table telling stories. It was great to just hear about somebody else's life and stuff. Of course, most of them were talking about when they were my age (and all of these people were my age around 1970). But it was great to hear stories.
Actually, I might be able to do it tomorrow night too. That'd be fun. It was also good and challenging to tell a story about my life myself, and I think they enjoyed it. I'm just not normally used to talking to six other people at a time, so I was a bit nervous. (I'm comfortable with 2 or 3, but more's a bit more scary.)
SPOILER ALERT! Do not follow the link if you want to go see the movie with no idea what will happen!
A fan has compiled many reports and shots from different sources to give us a look at Star Wars Episode III. It looks really cool, and I can't wait until it really is here.
Well, That's That
Earlier this afternoon I had an interview. I don't exactly know how it went, but at only 30 minutes it seemed kinda short.
Oh well, I trust that I'll get the right thing at the right time. I tried my best, and if this job doesn't work out, it won't be the end of the world. (Well, the end of the world might come, but it won't be because of my job interview.)
It only took three or four days for the comment spammers to find my site... they do a pretty good job.
Well, hopefully we can stay ahead of them now that I added a comment spam filter to my system. If it gets really bad, I suppose I could have y'all register to make comments, but I doubt that's ever gonna happen.
So, if you see a comment for something weird, don't bother clicking on it. It's probably comment spam anyways.
Gotta Be Creative
That's right. One of the reasons I got this blog was so I could be creative and play around with the design. So I've spent a bunch of this afternoon and came up with this. I'm not sure it's as cool as that default, but it gets more points because it's not the default. If you're reading this blog in FireFox or another standards-compliant browser (mostly just not IE), you should see a cool da-Man.com watermark thingy at the bottom of your page.
Probably the coolest part is that I only changed some CSS information to get from the last look to this one. Of course, that might change if I decide to lay out the whole thing completely weird. Or something...
I guess the color scheme is a large shout-out to my peeps at UST.
Well, either the market for IT jobs is picking up or God is finally saying it's time for me to get a job. ;-)
Yesterday I was told from a friend that works at a local tech company that I will be getting an interview with them. He should know, because his cousin is the HR guy in charge. Plus, I feel I have a chance because a couple other people that I know work there. The best part is that they're developing the latest wireless internet technology, so it's a good industry to be in.
And then, this morning I found a position that looked pretty good and just submitted my resumé for it. I didn't think that anything would come of it (because nothing has come of submitting resumés for the last six months anyways), but an hour or two later the HR person called me back and I have an interview for Wednesday afternoon.
Please pray that these go well and that I end up at the right spot through all of this.
The best picture nominees nobody's seen
The best picture nominees nobody's seen
Yeah, no kidding. Everyone's been saying this, but now somebody proves it's true. I haven't seen any of those films, but then again, who cares about the Oscars? Obviously nobody, but just in case anybody was wondering, even this year's host, Chris Rock, knows nobody (important) watches the Oscars.
And in other news, today's exactly three months before the release of Star Wars: Revenge Of The Sith. So why aren't you in line yet?
