look ma, no brain!

So I'm getting bus directions.

One itinerary it gives me involves walking six blocks and catching a seven-minute bus ride. Okay. Cool.

The next itinerary it gives me involves walking nine blocks . . . and catching the same seven-minute bus, only three blocks further up. Ooookay.

The next itinerary it gives me involves walking eleven blocks . . . and, once again, catching the same seven-minute bus, only five blocks further *down*.

I think they need to work on their itinerary culling. What if I wanted an actual *different route*?

Apparently my new computer is overclockable in software, at runtime.

As in, "download a utility, hit the 'overclock' button, watch the MHz go up."

I find this highly entertaining. Who needs jumpers, anyway?

Pointless brain optimizations: When, in the process of commenting source, your brain gets so good at filtering comments out that you find it hard to tell if you've already commented a function or not.

I swear, my eyes just slide off that green color.

my life, thumbnail theater mode (revisited)

Me: Hi!
Girl: Hi!
Me: I like you.
Girl: I like you too! Here, meet one of my friends. Oh, by the way, I'm dumping my old boyfriend.
Friend: Hi! I like you too.
Me: I like you too! And I like her too.
Friend: Yeah, so do I. Only she dumped me for no obvious reason to go out with the person she just dumped.
Me: Well, she won't do that to me.
Girl: I'm dumping you for no obvious reason. Now I like that guy, over there, instead.
Me: Damn.
Girl: Now I'm dumping him also, I like this new guy better.
Not-friend-or-"guy"-or-"new-guy": Hey! You're evil!
Me: Huh? Me?
Not-friend-or-"guy"-or-"new-guy": Yeah, you! Girl said so! And I really like her! It's a pity she has a boyfriend.
Me: I'm going to take a brief break here to extrapolate the future in my head.
Me: ...
Me: I'll just leave you two alone, then. Have fun!

If anyone can figure out who I'm talking about, I'm impressed . . . unless you're Friend, in which case I'm not surprised at all.

Note that Girl and Not-friend can't read this. :P
