Well, Space IV is done (that’s a class that monopolizes my lab, btw), so when I came in this morning, the lab was all but dead. There hasn’t been a call all morning. The lab attendant was even waiting outside the door when I opened the lab, so I didn’t even have to sit in there for 5-30 minutes. Now if I only had some cereal.

I fixed my menu vs. frames issue yesterday, no thanks to some orangutan who somehow learned to type on the Macromedia boards. All he was able to do was harrass me for using tools that I thought were, fast, easy, and efficient. He offered me a huge code to try and remedy the problem, but it wasn’t necesary. I think I wrote all this yesterday. It was a long day so I don’t remember.

Anyway, like I said, it’s quiet and I should be working on the web page since someone said it would be going live tomorrow. It should be pretty simple from this point on. If things go badly, I can work on it at home and scoop up some comp time.

Oooh Ooooh! 24 is on tonight. The episodes have actually been getting better and better as we close in on the end of the season. I’m going to be so sad when the season is over, but damn it’s been a good one. I went to the web site from the last couple episodes ( and while the actual web page was pretty damn lame, at least it announces that there will be a Season 4. Now I just have to get Seasons 1 and 3 (yeah, Season 2 was okay, but I’m not as excited about picking that one up).

I also want to look into getting the first and third Indiana Jones movies on DVD. I’m not so interested in getting the box set, as I’d be paying $55 and only watching 2 movies (as opposed to the Pink Panther set, which is only $50 and I’d watch all five movies!). I think I’m going to have to keep my eye on ebay and used DVD sources as I don’t really want the whole box set, just the first and last movie. I guess if I found the box set for cheap enough (I think it’d have to be half price), I might be convinced to pick it up.

Well, this has still been pretty un-prose quality rambling… just writing what’s been going on. In case it’s not obvious from everything I’ve written, yesterday was pretty much Hell around here, at least the first part of the day. I had three major things to get done (Rebuild a computer, process the lab attendant’s time sheets, and make headway on the web page) and I was completely prevented from working on them because I was dealing with lab issues all morning. The plotter was locking up at 78k on every file. Of course if a file was under 78k in the queue (remember, file size and print size are different), then it passed right through. If it was 78k or greater, it would just stop and cease printing. I finally got distracted long enough (3-5 minutes) to notice that it would eventually jump to a second filesize freeze. So I finally realized, it actually was processing and printing, it was just slower than anything I’d ever seen. I’m usually a pretty patient person when it comes to printing in that lab when its overbooked, but this was insane. Anyway, I think the best part of the morning, was when I was running out the door and tripped over the box fan and sent it spinning to the floor. It freaked me out, startled steve, and put a nice scrape on my shin. I slowed down a little after that, as did everything else. Today, even the halls are pretty empty. I love the second half of finals week.

Let me know what movies you want and how much you want to pay.

I have all 6 of my May buys still available.

Used (3 items) 20% off retail or 10% above cost for overstock
New (3 items) same as above.

I’ll see what I can see on Friday.

I’d be willing to pay $25 for “Raiders of the Lost Arc” and “The Last Crusade” combined. I think paying more than half for half of a box set would be silly, and of course less is always better.

Heather on the other hand, is bound and determined to wind the Pink Panther series for free. I keep wishing her luck, but staring longingly at it at the store. I guess I just don’t have her faith.
