IP Tables is Fun!

Set up an old computer as a web server/router/firewall. Since it's not just a stripped down wireless card like a store-bought router is, I can have much more control over how it behaves.

The wireless itself is unsecured, anyone can connect to it, but if you're not on a list of known computers, you get added to the block, instead of the

LOLcats. All day. Every day.

You want Google? Have a cat instead.

Hotmail? Cat.


On a less asinine note, it filters out ads automatically.

Life Plans

After I am finished with my Prozac regimene, I'm heading into the Army. Infantry.

That is all.

WTF, me?

I had a raging drunk moment last night. Threw my hat at my best friend, punched the wall, and stormed out, walking 20 minutes to my house in the cold without a coat. Got home, realized my knuckles were bleeding. I've spent the entire day today puking because my body apparently REALLY hates vodka.

I left a dent in his wall.

I'm ashamed of myself.


Because my friends took a video of me drinking an irish carbomb.... I really wouldn't consider that moderate drinking speed to be "chugging" like my buddy seems to think...

The Interwebs Have Failed Me

So, my best friend is turning 21 this weekend. I have an idea for the perfect gift.

Long ago, he had a CD, called Celtic Odyssey. It was rare and hard to find. We loved it. Somehow, it disappeared, and he's missed it ever since. This CD cannot seem to be found on the internet, in any way I can access it, at least. I can't order things because I lack a credit card, so buying things online is kinda out of the question, sadly.

Though I have a solution.

I am going to assemble this CD piece by piece using other compilations. I already have 4 down. That leaves 10, after one night of work.

If anyone happens to know some good places I could look for these obscure tracks, that would be helpful.

Example track...

It must not be chicken dinner thursday....

Dusty is chicken intolerant. What kind of cat can't eat chicken?!

This wouldn't be quite so bad except my cat has absolutely no vomit-place awareness. Bed? Okay! Under the dresser? Okay! Tile floor? Fuck no! Rug on the tile floor? Okay!

(Note she can eat balogna, but not chicken. What a trash cat).

Writer's Block: R/evolutionary war

If humanity were to become extinct, do you think another animal species would evolve to take our place? What lessons do you think they'd learn from our successes and failures?

No. Intelligence is not some sort of evolutionary goal. Evolution encourages creatures to better adapt to their environment, that is all. They will simply adapt to whatever environment we leave behind. Non-human species may develop intelligence independently from us, but it will most likely be exceedingly rare, much like how beetles that can shoot fire out of their abdomen are exceptionally rare. This is also a possible explanation for the discrepancy between the theorized frequency of life and the observed lack of it. Life is abundant and resilient, but intelligent life is an oddity.
