run the fuck away

<a href="http://www.livejournal.com/community/technopaganism/22411.html">Demon, get thee gone</a> from this monitor! To this, all I have to say is whatever works, and it reminds me of the days where I would summon Azathoth into the network so that the printer would break completely enough to warrant someone fixing it. Otherwise, it would remain in a half-functioning state until it broke more naturally.

<a href="http://www.wired.com/news/mp3/0,1285,60650,00.html">Meanwhile, I've always had a soft spot for Public Enemy</a>. Yeah, despite overwhelming peer pressure, I admit there is such a thing as good rap, and Public Enemy is an example of what that's about. I tend not to think of them as rap so much as "ghetto punk". Similar ideas and methods with punk, just a different means of expression.

I've been spending most of my career ducking lawyers, accountants and business executives.... I trust the consumer more than I trust the people who have been at the helmof these companies.</blockquote> - Chuck D

Oh, and for something actually important. I have an interview on the sixteenth. It's for a training gig at Fleet- training people like James (who worked data entry this year) how to work data entry for Fleet. The rules and regs sort of stuff. The bad news? Aside from being a shit-for-brains job, guess what? I wouldn't be able to start earlier than 11/24. Almost _two months_ away.

Still, not gonna look a gift horse in its anus, but damn...

On clientage...

Out of all the clients I've tried, Loch Journal has the interface I prefer, but Semagic, which is what I'm using at the moment seems less buggy. That, and in Semagic, I can view and edit the history. I've been flipping back, and for some reason, I thought I started this thing longer ago in events than I had. LochJournal has the features to view and mod history, but it won't work for me. It errors out while downloading posts.

And when I started this thing...
I had a real big facsination with the marquee tag.
