After work last night I headed out to Harvard Square to see a free, in-store performance by Nobukazu Takemura at Other Music. I hadn’t heard of this artist before, but what I heard was pretty good. I met up with some friends there and we went to eat some Indian food after the in-store. I bought a few used CDs and singles in addition to the Tool and Weezer cd’s:

I got a great deal on all of them, but all in all I spent way too much on CDs yesterday… Give me a break though, I have been utterly poor since October. :) For a change I am not leeching money off of my parents, so I needed to celebrate payday somehow.

So far I have given a first listen to the Tool, Weezer, Squarepusher, Matmos discs (I already had a dub of the Coil disc), and I am not disappointed with any of my purchases. I am listening to the Autechre disc now, and so far it seems pretty good.

I went to bed rather early last night, but I didn’t sleep well the night before, so I guess that can be explained. It is raining today, which isn’t that bad, because the air-conditioning is still not working right here at work (although there are some HVAC guys here as I write this), so cool days are appreciated… I am actually working on important stuff at work finally, which is a good thing, although I am still in a little bit over my head as far as catching up to this code base goes. It will take a few days to figure out how this all fits together yet.

NTOSKRNL.EXE can eat me.

My machine BSOD’ed twice today, and it has something to do with my IDE drive…. I will have to figure it out after I get back from California….

I finally finished up my presentation, and I am currently tying up a few loose ends before my trip tomorrow. My presentation ended up not being as bad as I imagined, but I have to brush up on some other technologies that I might be quizzed on when I give it. Luckily I don’t have to go to bat until Tuesday.

I am all moved out, as some of you guys know… It is good in a way, because moving sucks, but now I am kinda a vagrant right now…. My PC is set up here at work so I could finish up my presentation (and so it had a place to live).

It now looks like I might be travelling back to NJ after I get back to Rochacha. It will be good to get home, I haven’t been back since the very beginning of summer.

So that’s it for now… I will try to update when I can on my trip…
