Have to take my cat, Bo, to the vet Tuesday to check for heart worms, with some sort of scan. I am not a happy camper.

Nice storm just popped up. Not much to write about in my most exciting life. Brian, a friend, just got a nice little apartment not too far away. Schools out for the college boys, and a month for the high school people.

Been reading Suck lately, very nice commentary on the social events of today.

Illegalbay.com is not registered, looks like I get it. Everything eBay doesn't allow for auction, I will. I'm not sure if providing this service is llegal or not. Only one way to find out.

The Fatman (see below), the 1/4" output jack is broke, need to go buy yet another part, but completion is nearing If I get off my butt, and go get these parts.

Discovered help desk today. It's like User Friendly, only funny!

Read Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie and Shane by Jack Shaefer a couple of days ago, good books.

What a boring life I live.

Wow. Went and saw Nine Inch Nails last night. Umm, Awesome. yes.

Worked on the Fatman, I could be done with it, but I need a 330K ohm resistor. ugh.

Got my mom a digital camera for mothers day, now I get to play with it. ;) time for stupid cat pictures.

Madness takes it's toll. Please have exact change.

5 days to go till Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle hit Charlotte. Whoo hoo!

K5 is a really nice tech site.

After years of waiting (it seemed that way.) I finally received my PAiA Fatman Analog Synthesizer Kit, yay. Need to wake up during the day tomorrow to get a new soldering iron and some decent solder from the rat shack.

I like the word nob.

Got a Korg Elctribe EA-1 a few days ago, a cool little synth. A tad too dance oriented but I'm dedicated to making some nice music with it. I would recommend it as a cheap little first time synthesizer. In a couple of months I think I'll pick up it's brother, the ER-1, which is a more rythmic machine.

Picked up a cool quote today from Weird Al Yankovic.

"Jeremy McCarthy of Fairfield, CT asks: Hey Al!!!!! What do u think about Napster? I just want to know if you approve.

I have very mixed feelings about it. On one hand, I?m concerned that the rampant downloading of my copyright-protected material over the Internet is severely eating into my album sales and having a decidedly adverse effect on my career. On the other hand, I can get all the Metallica songs I want for FREE! WOW!!!!!"
