Note: I no longer blog here, and have not posted here since the mid 2010's. (😱) Please check out the homepage, which probably has links to more recent projects, photography, and (perhaps someday) writing. Below is the original content of this post:

You know how hard it is to code HTML and PHP source on a sheet of paper using pencil? It's hard enough doing it on the computer for most people, lol. (Right click on this page and hit "view source". Imagine typing it all up. Now imagine doing the same on paper.) Anyway, that's what I did with freetime in class today, aside from finishing German homework that I hadn't done. Then again, I also booted up MandrakeMove, which is a Linux distribution that you can boot right from CD without it touching the hard drive, on my workstation in Networking. (Megan's dad and I had a short talk about it a couple weeks ago.) Me, being the l33t h4x0r I am, went into Windows beforehand, wrote down all the network information, and went into Linux and set it up to use the network. Apparantly, even though on Windows you have to log into the Novell network with a username and password, you REALLY don't have to do it. I could get into the network and internet without a login, just with teh network addresses and configuration right. Hah. That amused me. Sorry, I'm such a dork.

Well, here's what I learned today.

  • Murphy's Law works. I said at lunch "Nothing can stop me today, I'm on a roll." I'd had a great day. THen, 5th hour German. I ended up getting an abyssmal 13/28 on a quiz we took last firday. lol... Remember me bombing the first German quiz of 2nd quarter? I think these first quizzes have something against me.
  • You can hydroplane at 30mph. Let's just leave it at that.
  • The Great Gatsby in a nutshell, up to chapter 7.:
    "Yeah, so what's up?"

    "I've been sleeping with your wife."

Mmmkay. I'm off to talk to people online, do some homework, and get crackin' on the PHP backending for the blogsite flatfile database system. Good god, does that sound important and advanced... I love the ring to it. really, it just means nothing--don't concern yourself unless you're an utter nerd like me. You've been warned.
