Holy damn. It sold out 8 hours after it launched. o.O

Went on the J-net barcrawl tonight. It was amusing and I guess... I dunno, still not all that fond of bars, but eh, the right ones are ok. Got pictures, and was surprised that the camera battery held out for so long, even with flash enabled. 60-ish pictures, most aren't all that great, since.. bars tend to be dim/badly lit places.

Apparently I smell like smoke. ::sighs:: And I just washed that hoodie recently.

Tired.

Mmm, there's a WootOff in effect. Which means, deals of varying wonderfulness on woot.com.

And my iBook's been experiencing failures to wake up properly after being put to sleep by closing the lid and transporting said iBook from location A to location B. And today it died as I was opening iTunes - the screen went blank. Backlight was still on, caps lock responded as expected. But no video. I should have tested volume to see if I could get beeps, but it didn't cross my mind then. Forced a shutdown, then tried to boot up, and the loud fans (the ones that kick in when the system overheats, or when it's checking hardware on boot) kicked in and remained running. Turned it off, pulled the battery, plugged it into the outlet, did a pram reset and tried booting again. It worked. Until I tried to hand off my iBook to someone else so they could look something up, at which point the screen blanked again, and I sighed.

Anyways. I guess I need to run another round of backups, then get ready to send it in, if the situation gets worse. But once backups are done, I'll be reinstalling MacOS X 10.4 as planned several months ago. It'll be a pain in the ass, but eh, I think something's messed up somewhere.

And now, shower and bed. Bed sounds very nice.

Just picked up my first Woot. =^^=v a Rio Forge 128 MB (SD expandable) MP3 player for $25. Add $20 for a 1 GB SD card, or several SD cards, and I think I'll be good to go for a while. 20 hour play time promised, on a few AAA batteries, I think it was. Should be good to last me a while.

(Had done research on it - was one of the top expandable MP3 players I came across. Things tend to pale once people start comparing it to the iPod, but meh, good enough for me. Just need it to get here before the 19th.)

The Register reports that American losers students prefer iPod to beer.
http://www.theregister.com/2006/06/08/ipod_beats_beer/

...About three quarters of the 1,200 quizzed for the Student Monitor poll said Apple's ubiquitous anti-social gadget was "in", beating drinking dangerous quantities of fermented barley into second place, AP reports. Last year, iPod polled well below the mighty ale, getting the thumbs-up from just 59 per cent.

Even sadder for beer lovers is the news that The Drink That Built Empires has been reduced to sharing the spoils for second place with tiresome social networking site facebook.com....


Hahahaha, facebook.

Oh, yeah, and they also note:
The only other time beer has been dethroned in the Student Monitor survey's 18 years was in 1997, by something called "an internet", but the interregnum only lasted a year. Beer fans responded: "Yeah. So, like, whatever. And stuff." ®

hehe. So amused.
