    I just noticed the former thread was called "post" in its title. Have we been living under that lie all this time?!?

    Beren uses post, I use thread. I think Splunge commented in one of these about how post didn't make much sense and I edited that one to say thread and have stuck with it since.

    We started a new hockey-club a few months ago. Until now it has been practising and playing a few friendly's.

    A week from now it starts. A mess up has postponed the training of referee's by a month, starting this week.

    By me. Not one evening of free-time left.

    I feel a bit $#!tty today. I'm sure I have many talents, but somehow they won't come out. I want to know which ones really stand out so I can make them grow. I guess it would be wise to do some tests and perhaps consult and agency, but now I wonder how I can separate the charlatans and the cr@p from the pro's and ambrosia.

    No better judge than yourself, MoN, as long as you're honest. :)

    I have my first class this afternoon, having a reason to wake up in the morning will do some good. I still can't believe I spent my whole summer looking for a part time job without finding one. You'd think 4 months would be enough time ? It's hard not to take it personally honestly. Anyway I didn't came here to whine, I'm actually in a good mood. Uni starts again, and well, yeah, that's pretty much what's going on with ye olde Flix.

    Yeah! I keep telling myself it's nothing personal. And it isn't. Surely not when there are 300 others applying to the same job.

    Yeah but in my case there's a mitigating factor; I've been mostly applying to par time entry level clerk jobs, retail, or stuff like that. I haven't finished uni yet, so it's not like my I've failed in my career or anything. Still though, it's not fun, summer's been loooooooooooooooong.

    POST SCRIPTUM (because I don't want to double post): Has anyone successfully run Icewind Dale I (I have the IWD + Heart of Winter Compilation) under Windows 7 ? I guess I could virtualize win XP, but it seems overkill just for one game.

    POST POST SCRIPTUM: Yeeeah I've got an interview on Monday. It's a part time job (week ends only) in a car rental company right here in my hometown. It's an office job, in charge of the car inventory, meaning I'd have to enter in the system which cars are rented to whom and which ones are still on the floor. Easy enough, it wouldn't be enough money to get my own appartment (at least not part time) but still, I'd have some income to pay off my credit card debt.

    The beta test of the UPC Horizonsettopbox for cable TV users in the Netherlands is over.

    We received several updates(dozens) and a new remote control. You only need to pair it with your box. So get out your manual. (real men do not need the *manual)

    And place it back after you realise how useless it is. you go to your computer, google the problem and learn the right, fast and easy way to do it.

    I'm so weak-willed, I'm trying to read this paper for one of my class but I keep getting distracted by facebook, twitter and, well this place. I wish my computer was sentient and told me "Dude, I'm not gonna load facebook untill you finish your paper you lazy assholoe"

    meh... the worst part is the paper is actually fascinating and so is the class.

    PS: If you're wondering the paper is: Ellis C., Nick, Emergentism, Connectionism and Language Learning, Language Learning 48:4, December 1998, pp. 631–664
