  1. Emergency maintenances make me sad

    I get the feeling that FFXI will have another emergency maintenance tomorrow, and once again, it is sure to start as soon as I get out of bed and end once it's too late for me to play. I'm also ready to take a break from the drudgework in Operation: Wanker, at least for a day or two.

    So, if this happens, is there anybody other than crusty oldbies who would give a rodent's hindquarters if I did another EoFF Audio Introduction?

    It's been 10 years since I've done one, ...

    Maintenance spanning all of my available playtime in FFXI again.

    Looks like S-E wants me to work on Operation Wanker.

    Vacation's over. Time to go back to work.

    This also means that Operation Wanker has been resumed. I've actually already restarted, since there was a maintenance in FFXI that exactly coincided with my available game time.

    16 more data gathering phases left, and then...ugh...data entry, like a glorified clerk. The only part of this project that will be fun will be the last phase and of course sharing it.

    urgh.

    I have uni full time at the moment, but that isn't what bugs me. What bugs me is that I have to commute two hours on crammed, peak time trains (and walking a couple of miles to get to the station) with smelly people I don't know.

    I love uni and I love my course, I don't perceive myself as particularly busy or anything but dear lord.

    I really need a business plan to start my own business.

    Just so that I can name it Maynard Criminal Enterprises, Incorporated.

    Revenue Canada would love that.

  6. "You can't yell fire in a crowded theater"

    Well no trout, Sherlock.

    The fact that you can't yell fire in a crowded theater is a point brought up in almost every debate about free speech in the US. And it has annoyed the hell out of me for years. It's always used as a justification for free speech being absolute, which is a position no one ever argues to begin with, during debates over whether a certain form of censorship is good or not. But unless the censorship at issue involves yelling fire in theaters, the point makes ...

  8. Been Pretty Ill

    That's why I've only posted a few times in the last few days. When I get to feeling better I will finish up the archive, the glossary, and chapter one of awakenings.

    Man, I swear. If it's not one thing its another lately. This is more of me venting, so if you don't want to know about that or if you don't care, move along.

    It's just been one thing after another lately, though.

    Work has been terrible, lately. Writeups and stuff, for no real reason.

    I take my car to get my oil changed, turns out I need new brakes. Yay. So a $25 oil change ends up being a $200 repair. Whoop.

    My phones breaking. It doesn't ...

  10. Status Report: Exhausted

    So my vacation is now officially half over. So far during this vacation I have accomplished precisely jack with regards to Operation Wanker, but I'm on vacation, so screw it.

    Productive day in FFXI today, though; Got Super Christ his subjob items and upgraded a couple of pieces of Empyrean armour. Unfortunately it does not look like I will be able to solo the legs upgrade, which was the armour piece that is most desperately in need of improvement.

    Been getting up ...
