Crypicology

Yes there are things I’m not talking about.

Yes, it’s because I’m withholding my opinion from you.

Yes, it’s because every single time I venture forth such an opinion the entire world goes on the defensive again.

No, you don’t realise how much it annoys me that I can’t even vent forth on my own fucking diary.

Yes, I did vow to stop swearing on Aquarionics.

No, I don’t really care. It’s just a word.

Are there things I want to say to people? Yes. Will I do so? No, because it isn’t worth the agravation, although another couple of steps and I’m going to be forced to talk even if it destroys friendships. I’m attempting to save this particular rant until I’m back on the upwards loop of the depresive cycle thing.

Who are those questions pointed at? It doesn’t really matter. If you think they apply to you, go forth and apply them as if they were. Though you’re probably wrong. Oh, and it appears people arn’t talking to me, though I’m not sure why.

Of course, all this may be paranoia. Both on your part, and on mine.

“Crush. Kill. Destroy”

So, Having spent the last two weeks trying to get our ADSL modem working on Debian (and failing. Miserably) I gave in and tried to do it on ccooke’s Windows2000 install (having got permission, obviously) only to completely and totally fail. Over the course of six hours of trying to get the thing working on two differant operating systems, moving various things around the house to make sure that it wasn’t the phone extension cord causing problems and other exciting diagnostic possibilities, the idea of taking the fucking PCI card out into the back garden and hitting it repeatedly with a very large hammer is getting to be an increasingly positive looking project.

Doing this to every piece of computer equipment I own is also looking fun, and generally the idea of throwing a massive tantrum with the aid of a sledgehammer is finding all the possible down-sides being ignored in favour of “But they *deserve* it”. I am not a happy bunny. So I write entries instead.

The only thing keeping me from the above is the fact that Adrian has lent us the DVD of the first season of Spaced, which is excellent.

Then I decided to sort out some admin stuff, and talk to Singlepoint about my phone bill being paid twice. They told me one of the payments failed, which is good/bad, and also that *this* months bill is almost as high as last months. I get it in a couple of days. This is bad/bad.

But the weekend – Aquarius’ Housewarming thing involved Vodka, Munchkin (Plus expansion pack) and geeking. Aquarius has Eric Mayer‘s book on CSS [

This Weblog Is Not Powered By Movable Type

The time has come for stage one of the release of the code behind the website – like anyone cares anyway. Aquarionics is powered by a home-built system called Ěpistǔla, written in PHP. It currently requires mySQL, but it appears to work. The code for it is online. Go see, and tell me what you think.

The code for the nodes sections isn’t online yet, because I haven’t cleaned it 🙂

So I have got a letter.

Not a nasty, Junkmail letter. Nor a dry, bill-type letter.

No, this is an ADSL letter, and that means Nildram.

Our (as in, Geekhouse‘s) application for ADSL appears to have gone though. We have the login name, the modem, and everything appears to be ready for the activation date.

Which is 2002-08-03.

Saturday.

When I’m up at Castle Aquarius for the weekend.

*sigh*
