In other news, I now have no less than THREE potential romance prospects, and two of them are even within driving distance. I mean, WTF? Am I doing something right, failing to do something wrong, or just getting toyed with by the gods?
I would say "it comes in spurts". But I won't.
Incidentally, LIRR rocks and sucks, in parallel. It sucks because it takes two hours to get to Stony Brook. It rocks because without LIRR, I wouldn't be able to get there at all - plus I've taken more train in the past week than in the entire rest of my life.
That sounds extremely bad as well, in retrospect. *sets subject*
I'm thinking of getting a VPS. With a good VPS, I'd be able to tunnel past any overzealous firewall, store important data (and reasonably large amounts of it) in a place where I could always reach it, host my website without worrying about my computer being in a box traveling from Seattle to Stony Brook for large periods of time (as a purely hypothetical situation, you understand), and in general, it would kick much donkey. Anyone here got much experience with those? Horror stories, antihorror stories, things to look for/avoid?
Yay, I managed to get through one paragraph without a sexual innuendo!
