What a weird day

It started at around 2PM. That’s when I woke up. After staying up until around 5 in the morning. I got up. Sat down in front of the computer and actually worked a little on version two of resurseweb.net. [ UPDATE Resurseweb.net doesn’t exist anymore. The domain is now owned by some porn site. ]

I received a call from a guy. He reminded me that we set a meeting for today to shoot some pics for the local newspaper. I met him at around 5’o clock. And I took some pics of the local karate team. And then we went to a family. Except the mother they were all (father, son, daughter) winners at ski competitions (local of course). I took the pics. Drank a little wine. Then we came to my house. Wrote the pics onto a CD. I was such in a good mood that I called a friend to go out somewhere. Actually I was such in a good mood that I knew something bad will happen… And then, the mistakes started.

I looked at my digital camera and thought: “hey, let’s get that” (mistake #1). So I took it with me. Without it’s case (mistake #2). At my friend’s house I put it in my shirt’s pocket (mistake #3). On the street I saw two dogs. One chasing another. And they reached a place out of my sight of view where they started fighting. So I made three jumps. To see something of the fight (fourth and final mistake).

Just as the thougt passed my mind I listened horrified to the sound of my camera crashing on the concrete…


Fortunately nothing functional broke. But the outside (mostly the corners) got scratched badly. I’ll never succeed selling it that’s one sure thing. :-(

Well… This is it.

Plans for a PC upgrade

Well, I’m planning to turbo up my PC a little since I last upgraded my processor and mainboard back in the spring of 2001. I plan to get an AMD 2.2+ processor with the matching mainboard (I think I will choose the Epox 8RDA+) and “lots” of memory meaning 512 MB of RAM. I’m curious how long will this configuration stand… I’m amazed about the fact that what I have now still works OK. I can’t say my computer is zippy. Especially not with Windows XP. But it works well. And I can’t really complain much… Except when talking about games.

Well. Time to put away some money for the upgrade. Find buyers for the old wares. And the rest of the procedures associated with an upgrade process.

Background movie...

Watching / listening to Bridget Jones’s Diary probably the 6 or 7th time… To say the least. One of my favorite movies.

Birthday update

Oh, and I’m not celebrating my birthday today, since the bar where I wanted to take the gang to get everybody happy by getting them drunk is taken by somebody else for tonight… I found out about this Wednesday in the evening and I was quite disappointed plus I had to announce everyone in time that it’s not today.

So the updated countdown looks like this: 5 days until I turn 24 and 7 days until we celebrate this huuuge event. Hehe.

And now time for a some exercise: Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday, Wednesday… Repetition is the mother of all knowledge they say but I just can’t remember how this day is written…

Update update: For those too lazy to count, I was born on the 17th of April, 1979. Now pack those socks… :-)

I borrowed my snowboard...

…to someone for tomorrow. I’m a little nervous…
