another day in the life

So what happened this week? Not much!

Wednesday: My eee pc arrived, and oh my god it is just as cute as hell. Reading about it on the internet failed to convey its size, so here's some size comparisons, using random crap from around the office. (water bottle, two gig ipod nano)

And one with one of my enormous mitts covering the keyboard.

It's friggin tiny! The ergonomics are a predictable trainwreck, and it sure ain't fast, but what do you want for three hundred and ninety nine US dollars?

There was a bum violently objecting to be thrown out of the building just outside of my office today. It was a nice way to start the day.

Also, I shocked myself for the first time at work! I was replacing a ballast (for the second time, since the first one was DOA) and I brushed up against the hot wire.

Q: Why didn't you cap it off, jerkface?

A: I did, assface, but the wirenut fell off.

We use 277 volts for the lighting circuits, so it was pretty spectacular. I let out a kind of "Augh ugh ugh ugh" noise and stumbled off the ladder. I, of course, had a witness, which was great. I taped that son of a bitch wire nut back on, which was somewhat unwise, in retrospect, since I only had one more connection to make before bringing the fixture back online; but I would be damnned if I let that little bastard shock me again.

Nothing else of interest, except that the 15:40 301 was both unusually early (by a full three minutes) and unusually uncrowded.

You want more Failtrain drama? Heck yes you want more failtrain drama!

Kyonko defends himself against my vile accusations.
<Kyonko_> what was this one man attack on tf2chan
<Kyonko_> what is this
<Kyonko_> and when did this happen
<Kyonko_> i do not remember doing this at all
<Breakable> i remember that lol
<Kyonko_> i only read the parts that were near my name
<bbot> when they didn't show up for the scrim, and you micspammed their server
<Breakable> it was the day we had the scrim against mantrain
<Kyonko_> well
<Kyonko_> i chatspammed
<Breakable> you went to their server and ran around
<bbot> and they got pissed, and saz had to talk them around
<Breakable> and yeah
<Breakable> did that
<bbot> and they left after a few rounds anyway
<Kyonko_> i just remember chatspamming
<Breakable> yeah it was pretty lame
<Kyonko_> i don't remember what else you guys are talking about
<bbot> that is perhaps due to your exceptional stupidity
<Kyonko_> or

[time passes]

<bbot> nice rebuttal
<Kyonko_> i know right

What happens when you shut down a server in response to widespread abuses of power? Why, people copy you. And then they impersonate you. For the record, my IP is, and I still don't know the rcon password. That didn't stop Dr. O, however. The logs are of #tf2, which is linked to the failtrain via FailtrainRelay. Comments to be relayed to the server are prefaced with !failbot.msg.
19:52 <%FailtrainRelay> (| *TKM* | Dr. O): you gonna write about it in your blog some more bbot?
19:52 < bbot> !failbot.msg WILL DO
