“You may not be his first, his last, or his only. Most likely, he’s loved before and he will love again. But if he loves you now, what else matters? He’s not perfect and neither are you. The two of you will never be perfect. But if he makes you laugh, at least once makes you think twice, and admits to being human, and making mistakes…hold onto him, and give him all you’ve got. He’s not going to quote poetry, and he’s not going to be thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him, a part that he knows you can break. Don’t hurt him, don’t try to change him, don’t expect too much from him. Smile when he makes you happy, cry when he makes you sad, and miss him when he’s not there.”

I suppose someone should come up with a version for guys?

...There was a time when I was extraordinarily tolerant. I accepted people into my life that I never should have. I tolerated very negative, broken personalities, in an effort to be in a way I thought was expected of me. To my own faults, I was yerning for completion in other people, for fulfillment in them, instead of myself. Over time, you witness just enough, you catalogue the things that touch a nerve or that you recognize subconsciously as a sign of bad character, all the while pushing it down in consideration for harmony. Usually, there's one last thing, one final piece of a puzzle into the nature of someone, and the scale of benefit-to-suffering tips the other way, and you realize you're no longer finding any value in a continued association or friendship with an individual. In your mind, you have an entire list of negative instances that have compounded over months and years, but it's hard for the person being abandoned to recognize anything other than a sudden departure, or a curt, short dismissal. They can only think of the latest thing they've done to possibly warrant a grievance and to them, the response seems disproportional to the transgression. Over time, the result was as good as it was almost accidental: I ended up surrounded with, mostly stable, successful, positive-minded people. It may sound cliche and oversaid, but it's likely oversaid because it's so rarely followed. If you can't change the people around you... change the people around you.

If you find yourself surrounded by someone who's almost always negative... maybe they're complaining all the time, or they're exceptionally juvanile in their outlook, or they talk about their problems without ever taking affirmative steps to resolve any of them, you might do better to distance yourself. I'm not someone who believes in mysticism any longer, but I swear as the truth that the subconscious mind can't take a joke. If you surround yourself with people obsessed with escapism, obsessed with everyone else's life by their own, obsessed with complaint and misery, obsessed with envy, it's going to affect your own happiness. Surround yourself with people who cope with reality and thrive in it, not people who create their own realities in their heads and rail against the universe for not conforming to it. If someone's telling you your problems can only be solved by someone else's productivity, dump them. If someone's seethingly upset over someone else's success and/or happiness, drop them like they were plutonium (memories of Mat Sherer frothing at the mouth over Scott Kurtz's ability to raise money). If someone constantly pines that they wish they could be something they physically never can be, walk way from them. If there's someone who can never talk to you without bringing up everyone else's drama as a doorway to "conversation", run...

Am also going to go shower. :: yawns:: sleeping at 4 AM 'cause you wanted to keep talking to someone on the other side of the world, and then getting up at 11 AM, to only poke the internet, and then go back to sleep until 1 PM is probably bad. Mmm, rambling sentences.

I should be productive today.

Yesterday, I set up mysql replication, one-way. 4.1 master on linux, and 5.0 slave on OSX. Took me way too long though - the instructions are lacking. But in rough order:
1) Modify my.cnf files.
2) Restart master server so you have the master table
3) Use mysqldump to dump said database. Or flush and lock the tables and make a copy of the database files themselves (binary copy? with tar?). OR go to the slave table and do a LOAD... something or other (Load from master?). The last one requires the slave to be set up though... so do 4 then then load? Might have to do 4 and 5, then the load?
4) On the slave side, if you didn't specify the master parameters in the my.cnf file, set them now. CHANGE MASTER TO... etc.
5) mysql> START SLAVE; (on the slave side, obviously)

Verification of success:
6) Check the error logs on the slave side for errors. Use SHOW SLAVE STATUS; on the slave side to check connection status. Check the relay.log (looks like relay.[some numbers here] files.) Log files stored in mysql data directory, unless specified by my.cnf. Suggested unreadable by other / everyone.

Now that's a nice.. I dunno. I like the wording:
"Yes. Never enough time, but decisions like this often do not have the luxury of time," stated Riley in a flippant manner. "If you wait too long, the decisions are sometimes made for you. You need to decide one way or another, while you still can."

From Akahori Gedou Hour Rabuge ep 12:

(A bit on the show before I start quoting: The main good guys, "Love Pheromone" (two female actors who have "forbidden" fetishes - one's attracted to boobs, the other, little boys, if I remember correctly) fail at being heros - they do more damage than the bad guys as mecha-enabled heros. The main bad guys, "Gedou Otome Tai", (5 sisters whose parents died as masked evil henchmen - watched over by a small demon-sprite-thing) do more good than evil with their magic elemental powers.)

Summary thus far: Death Ant Empire has come to steal *beep* from the earth. They are evil. They have picked up all 5 sisters, but the "good pair" come in to save the day, which... for once, they seem to be doing.

-Evil villain pushes a button that he pulls from his pants. Room turns pink. One of the "Love Pheromone" starts moaning and squirming, as does the daughter of the evil villain. The other "Love Pheromone" girl is standing in the back, her hands on her hips.

Evil villain: "I will explain. This sexy atmosphere enlarges the base size of girls' breasts by 3 times and agonizes them. So uh, why aren't you in agony?"

The small-boobed one: "That's right... ^^; these are just... FAKE TITS!!"

-Cue typical explosion of anger.

Evil villain: "Damn you! Evading this evil plan with mere fake tits like that!"

The small-boobed one: "Stop saying "fake tits!""

-brief pause

Evil villain: !!!. "Oh!"

The small-boobed one: "What"

Evil villain: "Little lady, what is your name?"

The small-boobed one: "Aimi"

Evil villain: "This is sudden but.. Please marry me!"

-Cue immediate face-palm reaction by everyone else in the anime. And myself included. ^^;;;


(Ok, looking back on this, it wasn't really that funny. So uh, just ignore me. I got a good laugh out of it anyways.)

But oh, look, here's even better.

I'm sure you guys have heard of Second Life, the online uh, reality world/game. Someone made a beautiful parody called Getafirstlife.com [http://www.getafirstlife.com/], and not only did Linden Labs (makers of Second Life) not get annoyed, apparently they even sent a Proceed-and-permitted letter to the author: http://www.darrenbarefoot.com/archives/2007/01/my-project-du-jour-getafirstlifecom.html#comment-75509
