So that's what you get for living and dying in metro areas.http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/13558226.htm
I can't imagine how bad it is to work for the city morgue or something of that sort in places like Detroit, New York, and Philadelphia. Maybe work is not bad after all, but clientelle stinks... literally.

|hahaha band wars
Irreparable invalid markup ('<are [...] band?>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]
<<Are your fans animals? I have a child in the OSU band and another child on the football team staff. Both told me the game on Saturday was their worst experience ever with football fans and would never go back to Penn State for a game. Is it necessary to throw beer (sometimes including the can)at the real human people that make up the band as they march to and from the stadium? Why would fans rush up to band members to push, shove and taunt them? Do fans really need to throw mud at the band? Do adult fans need to try to spit on players? I am disgusted at such behavior. And I used to think I couldn't stand Michigan. At least I never heard of such reports about Michigan fans when the band travels to Ann Arbor !!! I am going to encourage OSU band to file some sort of security complaint with PSU.>>

|The last day in paradise
During the week that I have spent at this heavenly and remote place I have noticed that the trees have developed an amazing fall color. Unfortunately, I have not set my foot on the grounds of the Forest Hill, but I think it is possibly better not to stir the emotions.
Tomorrow we will set out to Grand Rapids and the next day I shall be carried away by a train to Chicago, IL. We still have some entertainment left here and the time will pass quicker than I want it to.

I am very grateful to P for letting me stay at his place while in Houghton. The only pictures I have unfortunately free of people. I only took pictures of food, which was mostly insanely hot. I misjudged the amount of thai chili peppers and didn't expect them to start exploding on me. Stupid me should have poked them with the fork. They were like firecrackers in hot oil since I was trying to cook food instantly. Food was great. It is great to be here because there are stores that carry asian foods that are not available in TC. TC sucks bad as a matter of fact.

|Sorting out the bad eggs.
Ok, I deleted every military record or government service related entries in the table of all companies present at the fair. No Peace Corps for me. I worked for them and know what it is like to end up living in fucking Kadamdjai straight from metro Detroit. It sucked bad to see those poor Americans who volunteered, but some of them were quite welcoming of the lifestyly change(hippies). Anyway, I also sort of blacklisted heavy military contractors because they want citizenship clearances. I have big concerns about growth opportunities at such companies. The funnies thing was finding a mascot on an electric company's page. That really smell's like 50's to me.

So UM is at the fair too. They are suspiciously hiring all majors which makes me think that they are just trying to scam people into going to graduate school.
I just purchased tickets for amtrack through Chi,IL and Pitt,PA. It will be the first time in my whole life riding the fucking train!
As I am about to begin a journey to the lands previously seen and unseen I am getting vivid recollections of memories from the past. There is one below that has no particular date attached to it. I only know that it was sometime between 1999 and 2001. The point being to show what things influenced me in America.
2600 Ann Arbor meeting.
This was not the first one I ever went to. I remember hanging out at the Burger King-Tower Records place. Tower Records is now gone I think. There is an arcade below too. There was plenty of general bullshit except that somebody dragged in a giant black strapon dildo from the store across the road. A few ppl tried it on which was funny to an extent. Then there was B.S.+DC monkeying with a cellphone and laptop and making it show phonecalls in the area for "purely educational purposes". Then there was "Hacking for Vishnu!" and NFF(Nick's Fucking Fone).I don't remember who was screaming out that but I didn't know nff that well to share the joy and still don't. dc occupies a special place in that memory further in the night. Somehow DC, a slightly chunky dude in a trenchcoat with an afro, ended up persuading swamptrot to drive to someplace cool and introduce us to the environment. We ended up stopping in an empty parking lot at a strip mall. Above one of the stores there was a crack warehouse. I can describe that place as a bedlam. There was lots of death metal music and the place itself was a shithole at it its very best or worst. We ended up in a partition full of other ppl doing crack, pot, and god knows what while playing drums to a deftones tape on full blast. Some asshole started putting holes in a wall with a baseball bat because "somebody was talking shit about his style". Then dc transitioned us from one cubicle to the next where we had to judge a metal opus that "wasn't finished yet" and then musicians passed the pipe among the group. Me and swamtrot obstained. Don't remember much more except dropping off dc at his folks house and then driving up the ramp the wrong way and people beeping at swamptrot.
Surprisingly dc was the driving force in my future career because I wanted to be smart like him for a short period of time. This particular memory is not very indicative of that but he epitomized of what a cool smart person would be like and behave like. Of course there was nick farr but I don't remember anything connected to that except that I almost joined in to play rat fuck card game that basically fucked your pockets. The only person that didn't inspire me at all was Denis F. Baldwin. Denis is firmly connected in my memory to an Uberzombie & Bitch tshirt, a joint stashed under the magazine in his jointly shared room, and a WinNT speech. Also cookies on top of him placed as a joke on various locations.
I kind of blended 2600 and rubicon here. I can't help it. I started to forget the important things from the old days. I better put things in writing before my mind goes work-eat-sex-sleep-work-eat-sex-sleep.

So I will have a two week nightmare as far as it comes to traveling, talking to a bunch of important people, making the right decisions that affect the rest of my life, spending a buch of money on tickets and hotels, probably eating ramen noodles and peanut butter sticks for the duration, and more.
As shameful as it was I asked my mom for money because this wild dash pushes us to the wall on finances.
I will have to really control the desires to hit fastfood restaurants on any trips. If I could I would eat hardboiled eggs and drink warm water from a used gin bottle with some aftertaste.When I am in Houghton I don't need any restaurants since Patrick R. lives right next to World Foods. Fucking dumplings with some motherfucking hot chili paste. YES!
Things to do to prepare:
1.Edit and print all resumes.
2.Get suit from Marshall Fields.
3.Get a shirt+tie
1.Clean hamster cage.Fill up the bottle.Leave a stash of food.
2.Finish putting bags together.
3.Read up on Active Directory

PENN STATE JUST CALLED ME TO SCHEDULE AN INTERVIEW!
DAMN, IT IS GOOD TO BE A GANGSTA!
|Sunday, September 18th, 2005|
It feels great when you lay on top of the table in the park and look up the bold pine trunks crowned with some green, swinging violently at the top.
I have driven to the restaurant and the school today making me wife less irritated and tense. However, I did witness some unexpected behaviour that comes from other drivers on the road. Now that I am driving, I will never ever walk on the side of the road again for it is almost as stupid as playing russian rulette with an excessively large drum of blanks in your revolver. I scare myself when I am behind the wheel.
Today we have procured a perfect set of software for free. Let me repeat that important keyword - free!
Windows XP Pro
Visual Studio.NET 2003
Windows 2003 Enterprise
SQL Server 2000
Some eLibrary material that came on CDs and contained development tutorials.
It is also extremely important to note that everything is 100% legal and everything we own is 100% legal. I can still smell hundreds of disks burning in a barrel from a few months ago. Going 100% OSS was more painful since everything had to be adapted and what's peculiar I have dumped Fedora Core completely in the process. Latest release ended up being quite terrible for running RDBMS like Oracle and Sybase. Ubuntu was a much better choice, but it required a lot of time invested into it. Two days ago I hosed MBR on hd0 so grub went kaput. Without having a live cd on hand it was just a tad painful trying to get grub back from a regular cd.
ASP.NET 2.0 has a pretty nifty thing provided with it - Master Pages. I read several tutorials and like the way it looks and feels after I put it to work on my own site. Now that I have access to a sweet development package I cannot be more extatic. The only thing that is sort of daunting is that the fastest system I own is a Celeron 2.4. It sucks bad. I am ready for that big pay off after the fair.
I got beaten to the punch in a contest trying to determine the brand and type of rice served at the restaraunt. She won and shame on me.
