The sideroads finally opened to work (highway still closed) and I still couldn't get in since the fuel lines froze in my car and had to replace the fix the belt on the alternator since it froze up and wouldn't actually spin the right pulley. Finally got it all warmed up and good to go around 11:30 and dumped in some gasline anti-freeze and then the all the sideroads but two in the whole county were closed so I couldn't get out anyway. Called my boss to let him know my car was working again but the roads were closed and then he let me know they were sending everyone home early anyway.

Funniest thing is today is worse then yesterday weather wise but the sideroads opened up so I guess they were desperate for people to get in. (probably more for the shift people [Category A] so they could relieve the dudes stuck there for 3 days)

Ugh, going to be behind on work once again once I get back, although I guess everyone is. (roads have been closed since sunday, and the week before missed another 2.5 days and the week before another 2 as well)

Craziest winter in a long time this year. Oh well.
Get outta here, Thunder Tits!

Almost got hit by a car last night. I was having a fantastic time rolling and I was walking on the sidewalk next to the building I was about to go into, when some drunk dudes in an SUV peel around the corner and weave through the group of people I was walking with. It was about 6 inches away from me. Totally ruined my night.

Well, it's a snowstorm, and it's all clingy snow, so I have a feeling the power might go out (too much snow clinging to powerlines and causing them to snap), but at least it's pretty...until the inevitable power outage caused by 12"-16" of wet clingy snow.

I really hate teaching old people how to use computers. Like, it's something I've always found annoying, but I'm increasingly growing impatient with it. It's always the same exact simple mistakes that people make, and they're easily avoidable you bother to like, fucking read instructions that are on the page before you start clicking away at shit. Like, this inability or unwillingness to read shit before you start clicking on things is the kind of habitual mistakes little children make. You're grown-ass adults. Not reading instructions shouldn't be a fucking issue. And I hate having to waste my time walking over to someone and basically telling them shit they should already know but are too fucking lazy/stupid to read instructions and figure shit out themselves. I'm here to assist with trouble, not to do your critical thinking for you.

I'm really sad because an old DOS game that I really love and want to play again has compatibility issues with 64 bit OS so I can't install it on this PC. :(

The library I volunteer at is getting a bunch of new computers. They're really swank, even if I have to put up with Windows 8 (touch-screen on a laptop is awesome, BTW). Problem is, there's a bunch of new child-safety protocols built into these that are blocking all the websites I visit on the regular that make sitting in the library for hours on end with nothing to do bearable. For example: yes, there's tons of NSFW shit on Reddit that the library as a whole would probably be better off blocking. But come on man. I'm only on there to read SFW shit like /r/nba, or /r/dota2, or /r/dccomics, or /r/worldnews and not even anything borderline risky like /r/anime. This blows so hard.

I think I've had it up to here with Charter. Ever since I've moved in here my internet has been unreliable on an outstandingly consistent level. I've never gone more than a month with functioning internet, usually doing that thing where it constantly disconnects (sometimes for a few seconds, sometimes for five minutes) and then reconnects for maybe ten minutes before going down again (rinse and repeat for hours or even days). Been doing this on and off since I moved in here. Three technicians later and nothing is fixed. And this morning I wake up to no internet. Was on the phone for thirty minutes before they finally admitted they didn't know if they could fix it any time soon.

So I cancelled it. Gonna tether with my phone network so I can stay online but beyond that I'm gonna take a break from multiplayer games (I've gotten my fill of Hardline, so I'm fine with that) and video streaming (I've got a physical backlog too and a video store right down the street that rents things out for next to nothing; also won't interfere with my watching of Star Trek Enterprise, I've got alternate solutions for that). Also I'll still pop up on Mumble, used it on tethered network a week or so ago and no one even noticed. Uses next to no data too.

Gonna move across town in the next month or two anyways (if all goes according to plan and I can find somewhere to move too), so I'll just reconnect my internet at my new place and hope it's not a broken mess there.

There seems to be an increasingly more likely possibility that my TV just died on me. The power LED is on and sound is still coming out of my receiver/speakers but the screen is black. I'm about to be the saddest man in the world.

Yeah they were still going strong here till at least 11pm. I suspect it was freaking my cat out as well but she's still not quite used to the new house so is rather skittish anyway.

I just knocked an open bottle of hot sauce on the floor. It didn't break thankfully but it hit the ground at such an angle that a good amount of it managed to splash up so high that it sprinkled all over my head and face and then left a big red puddle on the carpet. Fuck.

So, it looks like Russian separatists in the Ukraine just shot down a Malaysian passenger jet. I clicked through on some pictures of the carnage. Should have taken the "NSFL" warning seriously. I'm actually nauseous.

Hinges on my laptop failed and now the screen is trying to separate from the top frame. :( Might be able to super glue it together although I think I won't be able to close it after that, probably going to just go looking for something new.
