Jacking your shit
I'm the one that makes switch engineers pheer
The one that don't drink beer
Watching the packet counters fly
Watching computers die
I'm invisble, you can't touch me.

Status of my shower repair…

(conversation about repairing my vehicle above this conversation)
(14:19:51) noweb4u: yea, so my apartment dude came and "fixed the shower". He replaced the showerhead (which wasn't broken to begin with) and didn't even bother turning it on. Needless to say it still doesn't work.
(14:19:59) denisbaldwin: hrmm..
(14:20:05) noweb4u: it was the same one who botched it the first time
(14:20:07) denisbaldwin: Call Motown Dyno…
(14:20:14) denisbaldwin: they are at like Dequinder and 10, I think.
(14:20:19) noweb4u: ahh
(14:20:57) noweb4u: hmm, I think I'll bug this place up the road, where if they botch it I can walk home and get something to kill them with.
(14:20:59) denisbaldwin: hah..
(14:21:05) denisbaldwin: fucking repair people.
(14:21:07) noweb4u: yea
(14:21:32) denisbaldwin: haha..
(14:21:32) denisbaldwin: Like a big chainsaw!
(14:21:35) noweb4u: I'm gonna take a picture of that dude and say "don't ever send this guy to my apartment anymore" and send it to their complex management
(14:21:40) noweb4u: don't I wish..
(14:21:51) noweb4u: I was thinking of making a nasty flamethrower or something though
(14:21:59) denisbaldwin: haha..
(14:21:59) denisbaldwin: you should
(14:22:07) noweb4u: burning to death sucks almost as much as botching my shit
(14:22:08) denisbaldwin: haha..
(14:22:26) denisbaldwin: Just give Zero some beans and tell him to put on the wifebeater and carry a torch.
(14:22:34) noweb4u: haha
(14:22:41) noweb4u: I'll just use zer0 as a weapon
(14:23:27) noweb4u: so yea, I called up the complex uber pissed, and told them how much of a shitty job he did last time, and how he didn't fucking do anything this time, and blah blah blah. I didn't censor my true feelings either.
(14:23:43) noweb4u: I feel sorry for the lady who had to take the call
(14:23:54) noweb4u: I should send them a gift basket when it gets fixed
(14:25:28) denisbaldwin: haha..
(14:25:28) denisbaldwin: and just not kill them.

Copied from my "I"m telecommuting today" email…

My shower is AFU today, as in no water comes out the showerhead, and the faucet part runs at 1/4 to 1/8th the flow rate of a normal faucet.
It's the "shower or bath" knob. The fucknut that repaired it about a month ago to fix a water leak found during a leak inspection didn't know what the hell he was doing.
bah. Sometimes I hate this apartment complex. They need to assign the one competent repair tech to my apartment more often.

Anyway, I got the "dirty smelly computer geek" thing going on in full effect, so I'm gonna just stay here and keep bitching at the complex until they escalate it
and fix it. Hopefully as is, it should be today or tomorrow.

So zer0 was talking about how great of a belt he has, and how it was only $10, and he got it a few years ago, and how it never broke or anything.
It then broke in his hand.

News flash

I'm gonna hitchhike to defcon and hang out there. N told me this is the final year, so I can't do it right (as in, with money and stuff), so I'm gonna bum my way there and have a good time.

Anyone who wants to give me and ladymace a ride to defcon, I'd appreciate it. w00t!


Ok, so I was about to go to sleep, and I was wondering:
When I turn 30, will I simply implode upon myself and disappear in a blinding flash of light and wind?
I need to know this in advance, so I can change my life plans accordingly.

Anyone know?

woo, so I just finished my Tax return for the year 2000. Yea, that's not a typo.

Anyway, It looks like I'm going to be owing the government, accumulated over the last 3 years, about $2500, including penalties.

I mean, I got a payment plan that is supposed to take effect, but considering this $860 just came up to add to the total (it was only like $1300 or something like that) they'll probably want to renegotiate the terms of the agreement.

Ugh. I mean, I know people have owed more to the government than this, but jesus dude, that's alot of frickin money.

This may be a bizarre assumption, but I'll shoot it out anyway.
Does anyone here have any knowledge of air-conditioner repair and troubleshooting?

My A/C supplied by my apartment complex is supposed to cool off, at minimum, the livingroom, by at least 10 degrees.
It cannot do this, even with all my equipment powered off.
The best I have seen is a temperature stabilization, and maybe a 2-3 degree drop.

At this point, my power meter is spinning madly out of control.

Now, after about 6-12 hours running, I have racked up an obscene power bill, and the a/c has formed hard ice around all the coils. Air barely moves anymore.

I've used fans to try to assist air movement, and all that. The complex has replaced it once at my request last summer, and nothing's changed.

The question: Are they giving me shitty air conditioners (Yea, I know they suck, but are they DEFECTIVE is the question), or is it normal for this to behave in this manner, or is it something I can easily fix?
