November 1999 Archives

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/30/99 -- Had to scrape Personal

11/30/99 -- Had to scrape frost off the Neon for the first time today. Changed into my winter coat too. Guess November decided not to leave
without a chill after all. Got up at 6:45 to have breakfast at Ermine's
with Lauren… that was lots of fun. Lauren seems to think I don't like
her or something… don't know why. I think she's cool. :)

Let's see… no more Operating Systems except for the final, no more Interfacing except for the last lab… down to 6 class periods, a lab, and
3 finals to go. :) Oh, and that AI paper. But 4-8 pages shouldn't take
too long. :) And no final Automata assignment. Yay!

Oh, and I added a new item to the Dislikes page.

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/29/99 -- Happy birthday Dad! Personal

11/29/99 -- Happy birthday Dad!

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/27/99 -- Staying cheerful mainly Personal

11/27/99 -- Staying cheerful mainly through sheer willpower today. Nothing serious, just got the blahs. :-P

Update: Pics are now linked from the Me Page, and may be found on the Gallery Page.
Let me know if this page takes forever to load and I'll break it up.

Update 2: I am a dumbass.

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/25/99 -- Rainy day. Missing Personal

11/25/99 -- Rainy day. Missing Jen. Thanksgiving dinner was yummy.

Also, this weekend I plan on adding several pics to my pages (specifically a couple of me, Jen, me and Jen, and one or two or three of
the ferrets :). I promise. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/23/99 -- 6 days of Personal

11/23/99 -- 6 days of classes, 1 Interfacing lab, 1 AI paper, 1 Automata assignment, and then we get to do finals… but then I'm done for
the semester and I get to go to England. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/24/99 -- Vacation baby! Yeah! Personal

11/24/99 -- Vacation baby! Yeah! :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/22/99 -- Wrote a paper Personal

11/22/99 -- Wrote a paper on Artificial Life for my AI class… really cool field. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/20/99 -- Cleaned the apartment, Personal

11/20/99 -- Cleaned the apartment, did the dishes (I hate doing dishes :), got $140 worth of stuff at JCPenney for $96 (Sales are good.
Sales with Gift Certificates are really good. :), scouted out what
I want to get with my Barnes & Noble gift certificate… Life is pretty
good today. Be better if Jen was here… rainy days always make me miss
her more.

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/18/99 -- Napster rocks. Share Personal

11/18/99 -- Napster rocks. Share MP3 files with the world…

Well, Netscape finally crossed the uncrossable line. It completely locked up my machine (as in remove power to reboot) three times in an
hour. Internet Exploiter it is. At least until Mozilla is usable.

Made chili for dinner… it actually turned out really well. I'll have to remember it. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/17/99 -- Happy birthday me. Personal

11/17/99 -- Happy birthday me. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/16/99 -- The future of Personal

11/16/99 -- The future of radio? I hope so. :) I've often wished radio were run by
real DJs who picked their own music and such. If commercial radio won't
do it, I wish I could. :)

In other news, I have been very productive lately… my project at work is going swimmingly. If I'm not careful I might even begin to
believe my own reputation. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/14/99 -- The Thistle and Personal

11/14/99 -- The Thistle and Shamrock is awesome. :) Heard it on the way to my parents' house
yesterday. And the DJ even has a cool accent. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/11/99 -- Infinite loops are Personal

11/11/99 -- Infinite loops are the bane of my existence. I swear. I just sent myself 1600 automated e-mail messages from an active server
page I'm working on at work. Jeez.

It's official. One week to my birthday. This has got to be the least-anticipated birthday of my life. No Jen to spend
it with, no party to look forward to, I 've been driving for 6 years,
voting for 3, and I'm already legal. And I already know what I'm getting
from most everybody. Money for the trip to England. Which is really
great, don't get me wrong, but not something to be excited about opening.
No surprise. The only thing I really am looking forward to is opening
Jen's present. Other than that I think my birthday is going to be just
another day. I even have a test that day and one the day after for that
"you're extra-special" feeling. :-S On the other hand, I do get paid the
day after. On the other hand again, that check pays my rent and my car
payment, so I can't even use it for fun.

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/9/99 -- Cool. I want Personal

11/9/99 -- Cool. I want to study in the MIT AI labs… :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/7/99 -- Got a haircut, Personal

11/7/99 -- Got a haircut, caught the mouse, hung out with the fam; it was a pretty productive weekend. :) Coached my brothers' indoor soccer
team Saturday night (which basically means they needed a 21-year-old warm
body on the bench), skated for the first time in too long, and played
soccer in the yard with my bros. Met Conner's new cat. Tentatively
decided to see if Iceland has adult ice hockey lessons, since nobody ever
plans to have roller hockey ever again.

12:00 AM by Eric: 11/5/99 -- Just got back Personal

11/5/99 -- Just got back from the Cry Cry Cry (Dar Williams & two other folk singers) concert. It was phenomenal. Dar Williams is just
fantastic. The music was sending shivers down my spine, it was so
good. Even the opening band (Fred Eaglesmith and the Flying Squirrels :)
was good. But Dar was just awesome. She sang February along with
most of Cry Cry Cry's stuff, and some other stuff (as well as stuff by
the other two) as well. Just phenomenal.
