Me News (Best Kind!)

Found a room to rent. $500/mo, 9/1 through 12/31. In Santa Margarita (8 miles north on 101), and the house is PRISTINE. The guy is a recent 'Poly graudate - forestry major - and he bought it brand new, but would like some people to live in his two fair-sized guest bedrooms to lessen his payments.

Woohoo! Actually, getting housing in SLO is pretty easy, if you look during summer. I had to turn down another guy this morning who accepted my app an wanted to give me keys this afternoon. Felt kinda bad about that, actually, but business be business.

On an unrelated note, never, ever, ever pour out a bottle of red wine vinegar directly outside your only window. My room smells like a combination of feet and easter eggs.

The greatest spam ever

I got this message this morning. I'm drafting the plans to send right now. ;-)


I'm a time traveler stuck here in 2003. Since nobody here seems to be able to get me what I need (safely here to me), I will have to build a simple time travel circut to get where I need myself. I am going to need an easy to follow picture diagram for a simple time travel circut, which can be built out of (readily available) parts here in 2003. Please email me any schematics you have. I will pay good money for anything you send me I can use Or if you have the rechargeable AMD dimensional warp generator wrist watch unit available, and are 100% certain you have a (secure) means of delivering it to me please also reply. Send a separate email to me at:

Do not reply back directly to this email as it will only be bounced back to you.

Thank You"

BTW, I think he's looking for Martin's watch.

New Compy Suggestions?

Alright, it's about time for the old dual 400 MHz IBM tower to be replaced (I've had it for 5 years). While it is possible to play WC3 on it, it does slow down at times (and I'd like to eventually play SWG). Since it looks like I can afford a new one, anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to keep it under 2 grand if possible, and I'd like: 2.0+ GHz, 1+ GB RAM, 128+ MB Vid card, 'big' hard drive, 'fast' bus. Not sure what qualifies as 'big' this second for hard drives (I hear 200+ GB drives are now available), or what bus speed machines have these days.

Anyhow, just thought I'd ask. Thanks for any tips!
