Pinned toot

? But I never did ...

I'm a weird guy who decided to base his profile on the movie Sneakers. I love technology, probably more than is healthy. My interests tend to revolve in a cycle but in the spirit of I try to keep it to infosec and general internet nerdery.

I live with a migraine 24/7 so don't be surprised to see the occasional related toot.

Fun STA Fact #4 (collect them all!): A Canadian goose once attempted to carjack me.

Cathy Dennis - Too Many Walls

Thinking in silence is all they allow.
These words still unspoken may never be found
All these dreams one day will be mine
They cross my mind.

Brother in law called. I learned that I can think, or I can talk on the phone. I cannot do both.

It was an awkward conversation...

This Logitech Solar Keyboard is the perfect keyboard to use with the lap tray on the bed. Except for the solar part. There's not enough light in here and it's been yelling that it's at 1% all evening.

I _need_ to go leave it under a lamp tonight, but I just don't have to spoons to get up and do it.

Maybe I'll crack the curtains open tomorrow? Ha. Like that's gonna happen.

Rehearsed steps on an empty stage
That boy's got my heart in a silver cage

Do I buy one power adapter for $X or 5 power adapters for $2X?

I don't have any switching type 12v power adapters left.... Very tempting to get 5.

Sort of kind if maybe did not eat lunch yet. But it's after 1500. If I eat now I'll eat too little for dinner and be really hungry late.

Except I'm supposed to eat _something_ every four hours to avoid worsening the migraine and I miiight not have eaten since 0830.

Life is far too complicated.

@Harena You're lucky I happened to spot you hiding in my pending followers. I tend to just let them pile up all ignored like.

I am alive.

Thursday was a bad day for a very long list of reasons I don't particularly care to get in to.

Since then I've been dealing with high pain, and about the only thing I've been able to do is lie in bed and read.

I'll be back at some point, hopefully soon, but I don't know when. Feel free to come find me elsewhere, this place is just a little too busy right now. Drop me a DM if you need details.

That late afternoon caffeine was both good and bad. Good because it made the extra-awful component of the headache go away. Bad because I'm still awake.

If I still used Windows, I could probably make a reasonably approximation of this with an AutoIt script.

about ALT+F7, a hotkey (which Windows needs) that says "Move Window"

It will unmaximize the current window and stick it to your mouse cursor, which is really really handy if it's off screen.

I've been using it a lot because one of my three monitors is in a different physical location than the other two. I added a panel icon called "Window List" where I can select any open window from a list, and then I hit ALT+F7 and move the mouse back over to my current monitor. _Very_ handy for moving windows back and forth.

Well here's a new one. Someone trying to use the MUD to make a SIP call:

[_log_io] Failed connect 15908: OPTIONS sip:nm S from desc->5
[_log_io] Failed connect 15908: From: <sip:nm@nm from desc->5
[_log_io] Failed connect 15908: Call-ID: 50000 from desc->5

Katie Melua - Nine Million Bicyles

There are nine million bicycles in Beijing
That's a fact
It's a thing we can't deny
Like the fact that I will love you
'Til I die

Mom and Dad went out to dinner. Offered to bring me back something. Online restaurant menu consists entirely of scans. *sigh*

Flight Facilities - Crave You (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix)

"Let's just stop and think, before I lose faith"

You should listen to the original too, this version pretty much cut out the verses, which have some good lines.

This version is still my favorite though.
