Emptyeye.com Week 35- The Apartment is Better

This past week, a lot of the issues I had with the apartment got fixed, specifically the toilet and cable (The latter of which involved a simple reboot of the system on Cox‘s end). As a result, the place actually feels something like a home now, and to celebrate, we had a housewarming (Apartmentwarming, I guess) party earlier today. It pretty cool, as some of my friends from Massachusetts showed up, as did my parents and a bunch of Jess’s family. So that was neat.

In about a week, work on The Six Day Exile will resume, for real this time. It’s a good thing I had everything backed up onto two external drives, because on of them has just about died. Luckily, the second is still up and running; late next week sometime I’ll probably get another one to keep that redundancy (A good thing when it comes to backing stuff up) intact.

Speaking of things being on the fritz, my Cobalt Flux continues to not work right even after a cleaning. I’m not entirely surprised, mind you–what it did isn’t really consistent with it being dirty, but rather some type of wire problem–but it is a bit disappointing. Well, more than a bit–DDR was about my only form of exercise nowadays.

Finally, I’m back into playing StarCraft. I’m not exactly sure why, to be honest. But I’m going through all the missions again to get some semblance of skill in the game back.

Until next week…

    I’m glad to hear things are looking up with the apartment. I don’t remember anyone mentioning a party to the Dziezynski side of the family – you know how we like parties. Come to think if it, maybe that’s why no one said anything. Hmmm… Of course, your apartment probably couldn’t hold all of us, either, especially if your mother’s side of the family were invited also.

    Aren’t you walking to work for exercise too? ;)

    Aren’t those game pads like hundreds of dollars? This may be one of the rare instances when repairing something is better than getting it new (when it comes to modern electronics).

    Also: glad things are settling in at the apt. Now that you have your own place, every day is an exile!

    Yeah, you may be keeping that for awhile. Jess’s dad, after we got everything moved in, more-or-less said “It may be a good thing we couldn’t get the couch in the van, because I’m not sure we could maneuver it into the apartment!”. My dad was a bit more enthusiastic about the chances, but he hasn’t actually seen the couch in awhile, so…
