Erik, Pete, Jimmie and I

Erik, Pete, Jimmie and I had too much fun last night. Waking up this morning sucked. Sure did see a lot of the toilet today. Ugh! It was in celebration of finals being over and summer starting and stuff though, so it was cool. Well sorta... not really...

It's 3:30am. I still have work I want to finish... but I'm hungry. So I'm steaming dumplings at 3:30am. This is a strange, strange world. Then again I suppose it's better than some people I know who have to work until 3:30am or who have screaming little kids awakening them at 3:30am. Or maybe I'm insane.

Hmm. Today is definitely lazy! I think the only really constructive things I've done are some readings on Rwanda and washing/waxing my car. Combined with the Ultimate Frisbee and the football we played yesterday, I am sufficiently sore now.

Erik's birthday party was good. Pictures later... I still have to get pics from my birthday up too. Wow, I'm lazy... or just busy! Also UCLA summer session 1 starts Tuesday, Helma enters the beginning of the end of her sanity, I think...

It's hot... I need air conditioning. Actually if it wasn't for my computer I'd probably be okay.

Oh yeah, yesterday after the "Day of the African Child" activity at 6:30am, at least everyone present got fed breakfast. Mmmm french toast, bacon, and eggs. Not healthy but I never eat those anyway!

Tonight's tip: sitting next to a computer with big fans which blow air on to your feet, in a room with an open window letting in cold air, and not wearing socks is a really good way to freeze your feet. I'm off to put on socks now... going to leave the window open though!

Stupid Blogger updates aren't happening as they should. Seems like only every other post and publish do they show up. Ugh.

Less than 4 hours of sleep Tuesday night, then less than 5 hours of sleep last night wasn't very good. I've already taken a nap today... bah! I feel pathetic! Oh. Happy Birthday Helma! Too busy today to do anything exciting though. Ugh.

Ugh. Finished my African history

Ugh. Finished my African history essay 5 hours before it was due. Supposedly it was a "research paper" but at only 5 pages in length, I just couldn't take it seriously! I had all quarter to do it, and ended up planning (and actually doing) it the night before it was due. 10 page research paper would have been interesting, but as it was with 5 pages I barely had room to get into any detail at all about Rwanda. Bedtime...

Playing with LAME 3.88 and

Playing with LAME 3.88 and RazorLame today for MP3 encoding. Very nice, much better than Audioactive. So many options though, I'll have to continue to tweak it. I didn't do a fair back to back comparison with Audioactive (FhG codec), but a 160kbps/Audioactive file was clearly inferior to a 192kbps/LAME file. Not enough to bother you, but definitely better when you listened for it. If you're listening via a pair of average computer speakers you may have a very hard time telling the difference, but through something a little nicer it was pretty obvious.
