GRR! i was so happy working on this restricted shell I was writing at work. It was fun, it was C, I could do it. Now I'm being forced to work on getting a stupid foxpro appliation to talk to a SQL server

I was talking to a girl I'm in love with yesterday, i was telling her how lonely I was, she was telling me how lonely she is. [What's the problem? I have no idea] Yes, she's well aware I like her, and she's turned me down repeatedly.

Have i mentioned I hate foxpro? I have no docs other than the online help shit. They were written by a sadistic idiot. The most unreadable crap ever passed off as docs. Screw MS.

Got an article published in Linux Journal yesterday. Family was happy. We went to BBQ's in the village [NYC] to celebrate. The village has an intoxicating effect on my parents. The Village has been getting odder as i grow up. It's always been bizarre, but the cultureclash makes my head hurt. Preppies vs. Goth. GAP vs. Righteous Sex.

Let's all learn howto calculate percent in out head. Let's do 15% of $58. Here's how you do it quickly. Take 10% of 58, 5.80, now 1/2 of that is 5%==2.90. Now add them! 8.70. 13%? do it roughly, 5.80 is 10%, a third of that, hmm, a third of 6 is 2, so we'll say 1.95+5.80=7.75!

More fun math tricks later. Did I mention I hate foxpro? Upgraded to debian unstable for 2.4, and now my system is unstable, what a rush! more later.
