Ok, LJ Posts now imported, sweet... it didn't get all of them but I think it pulled 98% or so at least. I'll start looking over them today. Over all I think it did a pretty good job.

I received a formatting error when I tried it the first time. I had to go through and reformat the text for all my entries. There isn't much information about it on the dreamwidth FAQ or in the automated email. Considering the 10 years of posting I've done it went pretty quickly too.

I am also going to have to do some touch-up to my profile I believe. I didn't realized how long it had been since I stopped using LJ. Sad really, at one time it was a great Journal page, it went downhill pretty quickly however.

Yeah, I've posted a few times I think: 2,117 Journal Entries

do I really type that much?

Ok, the import didn't go so well, it only pulled my first 20 posts from 2001, nothing after that. I'll have to read through the news and see how to fix that.

Thank you so much [personal profile] anomily for inviting me.

I'm back home after my trip to Las Vegas. I had a great time thanks to a new friend, it wouldn't have been the same trip otherwise.

I'll start putting up some picture links soon.

lj changes

wow, LJ has really changed, I don't like this format at all... I can't find any of my old links, there are advertisements everywhere... It's like a cheap version of myspace now... how awful!

Will need a telescope to view it... might be a little bit of a better view further west from my house...

I have a new phone and it seems that due to the poor implementation by Danger (now owned by microsoft) my contact list is gone. So... if I had your number before, I no longer have it, please drop me an e-mail when you get the chance with your contact info.

For those of you who have an idea as to what vi is... you will realize how funny this e-mail I just received is, and how absolutely dumb amazon is. (this on top of the whole no more gay books thing)

Amazon fails )

Those who were watching the pope got a taste of girls gone wild all of a sudden... sweet...
hugme: (Default) there is a ton of new stuff we need to do before we can pass our electrical final most of it is stupid shit. Some of it I'm pissed off about.

There are some of the really idiotic things Cobb county is making us do.

Because of the type of door we put in place. It being a pocket door and not a hinged door, we need to add another outlet. No, I'm not kidding, I wish I was kidding, but I'm not.

There is a light fixture that has to be moved 3 inches. It passed rough... so why the move? the light has to be in the middle of the pantry, which it was, but because we put permanent shelves in the room they count as the line for the wall. So now the light is too far to one side. Even though the shelves don't reach the ceiling.

The cabinets have to be finished. so you think there are outlets or any power running into the cabinets? nope, none at all. All the outlets and power come from the wall behind the cabinets, which is finished. The outlets are done and not moving. The cabinets have nothing to do with the power what so ever. They do however have to be finished before we can pass inspection.

Suddenly an outside outlet is required. Which should have been noted on our rough... You know BEFORE we put up the walls that we now have to drill holes in so that we can run the cable for the outside outlet... but it wasn't... suddenly it's required now.

so no, we didn't pass our inspection, and the bad part is that our permit will expire in a week if we don't pass another inspection sometime from now until then. if we don't they are going to put a hold on it and I will have to go to the courthouse and renew it... AGAIN.

This is insane. I am never, ever going to get a permit for work I'm doing to my house again. They wonder why people don't want to get permits? THIS IS WHY!!!

I took notes while I was setting up Vista to share with everyone.

Long story but I've had to install Windows Vista 4 times on my new laptop. I've have several write-ups on the way. This is my rant about security:

run linux?

try this script:

for X in {A..Z} {a..z} ; do
        case $X in
                [A-Z]) echo "$X is a capital letter" ;;
                [a-z]) echo "$X is a lowercase letter" ;;

that's right... linux can't tell the difference between a capital and a lowercase letter. this is broken in ubuntu, and fedora core... anyone else want to test it?

it's just the case command in FC10 older versions of linux you can do this on the command line:

echo c | grep [A-Z]

and it will come back with a 'c'... which it shouldn't.

something so basic, you think they would at least get that right...

oh, this is not broken in FreeBSD, Solaris Sparc, Solaris x86 or OpenSolaris

fun script

a friend who is working on learning shell script asked me to do this. Write a script which generates all the letters then reports back whether they are capital or lowercase. It took me a little bit of thinking to come up with one I must admit, but this is what I wrote:

until [ "$X" -ge 173 ] ; do
printf "\\$X" | grep [A-Z] > /dev/null && printf "\\$X is a capital letter \n" || printf "\\$X is a lowercase letter \n"
[ "$X" = "132" ] && X=140
X=$(echo "ibase=8;obase=8;$X+1"|bc)

I had to convert the numbers into octal for printf to display them and had to look up variables to get bc to use base 8. I thought it was just "base" but it uses input base and output base so ibase and obase.

this got me thinking.... What about base 1? every base starts with 0... so base 10 is 0-9, base 16 is 0-F base 2 is 0 and 1... but base 1? Using 0 wouldn't make any sense. for example... in base 1 the number 5 would be: 11111 not 00000 as a 0 would be the absence of a number.

What do you think and why?

Ok, my birthday party will be on the 21st of March (even though my birthday is actually on the 10th. here is the info about the party:

Come celebrate John's 35th birthday a little late at our house on Saturday, March 21st at around 6 PM till when ever. Come and take a tour of the new addition on the house that you've all read about, but keep in mind, it's still no where near finished. We'll be running Rockband II on the PS3 along with potentially other stuff depending on popular demand in high definition on our 50" plasma tv. We'll also probably have DDR going downstairs with 2 dance pads. The invitation is open, but we ask that you RSVP so we can have an idea on the amount of foodages and beverages. Though, feel free to bring stuff to share, if you feel the inclination.

We might have some left over alcohol from the wedding, but it's kind of old and the good stuff's pretty much gone, so we recommend you BYOB.

Look for reminders and additional information in the coming weeks!

Hope to see you there!

Let me know if any of you need directions.

Wow, so Christians get really huffy when they start realizing that the crucifixion was a human sacrifice. Like really pissed off.

I guess they never really correlate the two until you show it to them.
