I LOVE California
It is currently around a nice 72 degrees here in La Mirada, CA. The sun is shining without a cloud in the sky. Everyone just came back from easter break yesterday and so they are happy.

Sucks. But, now it sucks on an Open Source Platform. I'm running Linux from a .gz file in a dos partion. It's suprizingly fast, especially with the Gimp. I'm using the 1.0 stable at work at it's amazing how much that one doesn't crash. It's horribly slow when opening large images but, that's what happens when your filesystem is a zip file.
I would have just dual booted but, the damn machine has something running in the background I can't defrag it. Pisses me off. I am NOT going to format it though. Too much of a hassle trying to get my boss to back everything up.

Hopefully getting my first freelance job today or tomorrow. Making a travel site. Pretty cheese work but, hopefully I'll be able do something artistic. Don't know what to charge the guy though. I a new computer would be nice (or at least an upgrade for the aging beast). I car is what I need but, a computer is so much more... I can get a crappy car for $2000 but, a kick-ass computer.
I'm seriously thinking of dropping out of college and going to a technical school or something. It's hard to pass up a free ride though. I know of of more than one person who would have my neck for that. Just cause one has a scholarship doesn't mean that they have to go to college. At least the girls are cute here (even if they are unaccessable.

Easter Break
Sucked. I had the joy of coming to all these grand conclusions over spring break. Stressed about what I'm going to do, what my major is going to become and who I am as a Christian. My cable got disconnected, my cable modem stopped working, only to get fixed and then the FAT on my hard drive gets corrupted. So, now I had a perfectly good cable connection without the ability to watch cable TV and no web as well. Life was truely sucking. Yeah, people have greater things to worry about but, that's what I had at the time. I'm not starving but, it pisses me off that I was bored all of spring break.
FAT Recovery
Does anyone know any utilites for recovering the FAT on a 32bit Windows partion? That would really help me out. You can e-mail me at gimptek@yahoo.com.
