Rob @ 5:10 PM

Finally put up the photos from last week's 2600 meeting.   Yay for me!  Here's the highlight reel...

clicky Kymus, a nice guy from Joisey.
clicky Grey with Leslie, a nice sociology student who did a project on us.
clicky Matt and I with a Spanish-channel news van.

In other news, I was looking for Tom Servo pictures to use as reference material for the fan comic I'm working on, and I didn't really find what I was looking for.

So, I started it myself.


I posted the link to a couple of forums, and am really surprised at the massive amounts of support and positive reactions it has gotten in just one day.  I must be doing something right, heh...

I've hit a local temp agency.  Hopes are up...

Did some general site maintainance today.  Streamlined and updated my writings page, gave some of my graphics their own big unwieldy page, and added a page of the forums I frequent.  Now I don't have to use all those damnable bookmarks when I get the urge to check messageboards.  Good for me!

JNN has posted the best Passion of the Christ news article ever.

(05:50:26) its linear: your AIM client is attacking me again by repetively sending your buddy icon.
(05:50:37) Rob T Firefly: D'oh! Terribly sorry.
(05:50:55) Rob T Firefly: I don't know why it does that, nobody else seems to get that but YOU!!!!
(05:51:19) Rob T Firefly: Maybe if you assigned me a local icon or something.
(05:51:30) its linear: unacceptable. take yourself to the mountain for sacrifice.
(05:51:48) Rob T Firefly: Yes, sir... grumble grumble stupid mountain...
(05:57:49) its linear: hrm... i clicked "No" finally this time 'round on your ICON HELL!@#, and i think that solved it.
(05:58:08) Rob T Firefly:You have to learn to say no sometimes.
(05:58:20) its linear: before, i would bitterly accept, hopeful that, maybe, this time it really will be a new icon
(05:58:44) its linear: but it's always just false hope with you, man.
(05:59:15) Rob T Firefly: Of course, you realize that I really do change my icon approximately 24 times per second.
(05:59:40) Rob T Firefly: If you stay updated, you get a DVD-quality movie in 50x50 pixels.
(06:00:10) its linear: oh man! start over, i missed too much
(06:00:27) its linear: ARGH!@# it started again just as i said that. i jinx myself.
(06:00:27) Rob T Firefly: If I get on voice-over-IP at the same time, you get director's commentary.
(06:01:09) its linear: insightful commentary such as... "my wrist hurts... i can't keep changing this damn icon"
(06:01:20) Rob T Firefly: Oh, you've heard it!
