Or the nail does, if that were possible. From holding it pressed down for three hours straight. A bunch of us played unreal tournament for several hours, it was a blast.

The central mail server has been down since last night. Power outage of some sort killed the machine, and they're having to recover it from tape. Yay. And it was the old mail admin's last day today too! heh. But since I was expecting some mail from overseas and I couldn't get it, it meant I had a reprieve from doing boring work, and got to spend the day on something somewhat more fun. Always a good thing.

And finished reading "Liner" by James Barlow tonight. Definitely not one of the better books I've read. It's got some great technical detail, even too technical, about the mechanics of running a steam-powered ocean liner, which was quite interesting. But he spent forever developing a bunch of loser characters, almost none of them I liked at all, and it was a full 3/4 of the way through the book before anything actually *happened*. And when it finally did, it was all over very quickly. I almost didn't read it at all, because it was *extremelly* violent at the beginning - so much so that I skipped over whole paragraphs of text within the first few pages. I wouldn't have missed much if I had stopped there. It's kinda weird that I can tolerate violence on tv much better than in books. Violence in books seems somehow much more intense and disturbing. I really don't like it at all.

Anyways, bed time!

I'm at work on the net searching for pedometers and this comes up.

Is this called a blog? because as far as I can see this is complete and utter bollocks

mind numbing drivel...for f***s sake I thought the internet was supposed to enlighten us.
maybe I will post my random thoughts....or maybe I'll keep them to myself...jesus why would you bother.

This is why the internet is so slow...it's filled up with this shite

Well there's his mistake... the internet is not supposed to "enlighten us," it's supposed to give us easy access to porn!

Mission accomplished!
