We’ve reached our cruising altitude of 36,000 feet…

Yah, that's what life seems like right now… just kinda cruising, everything is the same day in and day out. I guess that's what I can look forward to in the adult working world. It'd be nice if there was something new that could occupy some of my time. Oh well.

I was (somewhat painfully) reminded yesterday of how bad I used to be at PHP/MySQL coding. I did some updates to my music stats project that I started like 4 years ago, and holy crap is the code ugly. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, because I didn't know the stuff. That's not to say that I'm “good” now, but I can certainly make things cleaner and more efficient than that. Oh well.

I had another one of those rare guitar moments today, the kind that make me want to keep playing and learning. I had already played my loud stuff right after I got off work, but I was bored, so I went down later on in the evening just to doodle. The distortion was all off and I was just walking little patterns up and down the higher strings, but it sounded really cool. I had the gain on the clean channel turned up more than usual, and that combined with the neck-bridge pickup combination just made the guitar sing. I really need to pick up a power dampener so I can turn up the gain more without making the rig so loud that it makes the furnace resonate. I can't imagine that the neighbors or my roommates like that too much. Oh well.

I uploaded some pictures of the new place today. There are some pictures of the place barely moved in, somewhat moved in, and totally moved in. They're not labelled, so you'll have to imagine where they are. Oh well.

I should have named this post “Oh Well”.

My server just hit 200 days of uptime the other day and that's pretty neat… Oh the joys of having a box in a stable environment with no heat or power problems. It also helps that I have Linux running on there… there's no way a windows server would have lasted even 1/3 as long. Windows blows. Oh well?
