New anime friend

January 27, 2006

So I had lunch with people from the Business Office today.  Their a bunch of weirdos, I tell ya.  But anywho, they spotted a friend in the cafeteria who came and sat with ut.  Get this, she’s a grandmother who digs anime!  Not only is she an anime collector, but she also likes live-action foreign films.  Awesome!

End of the Spear

January 21, 2006

End of the Spear (official site, IMDB) came to theaters yesterday.  I’m hoping to take our church youth group out to go see it.

Underworld 2

January 20, 2006

By shear accident did I find out there will be a sequal to Underworld. Underworld: Evolution comes to theaters January 20th! I don’t care what the review are, I’m going to see this in the theater, and I’ll likely buy it on DVD.

Stuttering Stanley

January 20, 2006

So I was in class Thursday… and we broke into small groups for the last 20 minutes, like we do every class.  Only this time, with 5 minutes left, the instructor says, “Now, I want you to stop wherever you are.  Find the oldest person in your group, because they’ve had the longest to think about this.  And I want them to share with the class something about finding your spiritual passion.”  Not only was I the oldest in my group, but my group was to go first…

Life Goals

January 17, 2006

I just wanted to draw your attention to the new “Pages” section. Specifically the “Life Goals” page.

If you have any comments or can think of anything else I should add, let me know!

Busy little bee

January 17, 2006

“Tell me what you’ve been doing busy little bee…” Commodus (Gladiator)

I just wanted to let you all know I’m just really, really busy right now.

I have lots of reading to do for my class (not started), an essay paper (ruff draft done) due Thursday, and an assessment assignment (done).

I’m also teaching Sunday School for the youth this Sunday, and have yet to write that lesson (but I do have an idea picked out).

First thing on the list right now is sleep. G’night!

Stealing Root

January 14, 2006

I just stole root access on a server. 😛 I have a friend who is paying for a dedicated server. Only the host doesn’t give root access. (which sucks, as we need to chown/chmod stuff from time to time)  Well, the server is running Plesk, and apparently, Plesk allows you to run cron jobs as root. Oh, really? So, I just made a cron that appended the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files to create an evil root twin.

Took all of ten minutes.

It starts…

January 10, 2006

“It starts. You think you know a guy..” (from Timon, in Lion King)

So, I had my first class today. It was cool. Get this, my instructor is the father of the dean of my department. Literally. He’s my boss’s boss’s boss’s father. Kinda nifty, eh?

If you know me, you know I don’t like reading. Next to writing, it’s probably the least enjoyable part of learning. So how much of these two undesireables does this class have? Well, more than your typical CIS class, but I’m sure less than an english class. Did that answer your question?

Back to School

January 10, 2006

The last time I was in school was Fall of 2002. I left with two Associate degrees in Computer Information Systems.

Tomorrow, I go back to school to study Theology & Chrisitian Minsitry. It’s only one class that meets for one hour, twice a week, but it’s progress.

Internet Exploder

January 8, 2006

Gah. I just found out that my sight isn’t rendering as intended on IE. 😦
