The suckiest part about having a 10.5 hour sleep one night is that you can't get to sleep at all the next night. Tonight. Been lying in bed for an hour and nothing is happening, so thought I'd get up and check me mail and have a whinge here. :)

I don't think I've actually achieved anything this week.

So far I've spent two days battling with a server that first had a cd-rom die, then when it was fixed under warranty they managed to break the floppy in the process.

Then there was another battle with a dlink modem router. I could get it to work on the internal side, but could not make it talk to the outside world. I even spent an hour in the tech support queue to find out if it could even be done on our network or if it had to be on the end of a dsl or cable connection (the manual wasn't terribly clear about it). Decided that it should in fact work, however still couldn't make it, so the dude said it should be looked at for a warranty repair. Before I sent it off I just thought I'd give it a try in another network point. It worked. Much cursing was involved. So then I took it to another point. It wouldn't work. Much scratching of head involved. Then it dawned on me (with some help from my boss): Duplexing. The damned thing doesn't support a forced 100mb full duplex link. Much more cursing involved.

In other news, David Bowie says he'll be coming to oz in February!! woohoo!!

ebay madness

Another sucky afternoon. Boss issues again. *sigh* :(

The things I put on ebay on Saturday are doing well. More than I expected to get for them. I can't believe some of the stuff that gets bought and sold on ebay. And the prices they go for! There are definitely ebay traders that must find stuff cheap at garage sales then sell them for profit online. Madness I tell you.

argh. Being hassled about cia stuff. What they don't seem to get is they don't pay me enough to care. I get paid for about 4-5 hours work per month. I do probably 20-30. And that doesn't include monthly bonuses that the rest of the staff get but I don't. There's very little incentive for me to work hard, when there's absolutely no reward and next to no appreciation. More sighing involved. Bed time. :/

I hate everything

And since everything I hate about life can be traced back to the fact that I just plain suck, I hate myself most of all.
