Got back from my vacation-type-thing today. I have joined a club to prepare for the coming cross country season. I will run 500 miles or die trying!

I've been doing Summer work as an intern at a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center for songbirds.
That, and I'm finally gearing up to tackle my Depression head-on... which probably means shelling out my hard-earned ducats for Therapy.

I'm going to go work at a humane society too this summer.  I hear them parts are full of felines.

I just placed an order for a sample version of a 4gb mp3 / mp4 touchscreen player (basically an iPod Touch ripoff). The only thing it can't do that a regular iPod Touch can is wi-fi.

Anyway, if it goes well and after I run it through some tests and it works alright and if I can sell it for $50, I will order another 10 or so for further sales.

This comes from successful runs selling the Super R4i for all NDS versions. I have some spare change from the sales, so I'm thinking of expanding my business. Apparently, the greatest advertisments I can get for my line of business is word of mouth. It's quite impressive. People who buy one unit originally usually end up buying 5 or more for other people.

My business is doing quite well and I'm quite happy. I lowered my profit margin for the things to quite a puny number to help motivate buyers, so I have to sell a lot more to cover for it though. It's not too bad and the units move within days of the shipment arrival anyway.

Good luck with that Solifuge, I can sympathize big-time, cause I have very deep depression. Therapy hasn't worked so well with me, but it might for you, so I wish you the best of luck Solifuge.

I didn't know you ran a business Umiman. It sounds like an electronics store of sorts, is that what it is?

I tried doing my 4 miles tonight, but my back was just hurting too bad. I still managed 2 and a half or so.

As it's been raining all week, which tends to affect my arthritis, I'm not too surprised.

I suffer from bouts of depression, too. I find the exercise helps to rebalance me, a little.

Okay folks, I am reclaiming my thread now. You can still post and all, but Iíll be resuming actual bits about my own life, now that finals and summer camp are over.

Biggest issue for tonight is a hunting excursion. A bag of corn that I had been using to feed deer and turkey (my family likes watching them) got spoiled in the flood. We threw it on the deck to get it out of the way. However, this has attracted a raccoon. This coon has quickly become tame (o the point where my sister can stand and shout two yards away from it). Two of my cats arenít smart enough to determine cat from wild animal. Obviously, itís the two cats who arenít updated on their rabies shots and canít take care of themselves in a fight. I had the coon lined up last night with my .22, but I couldnít get the damned ting to fire. After a quick email to my Dad, he recommended that I blast it with #4 buckshot at the first available opportunity. A family friend let me shoot a couple of shells at his house (Two with #4 bird and one with #4 Buck). If the raccoon comes out tonight, Iíll be waiting for him.

Other than that, Iíve decided on a summer reading list. Iím reading the Warhammer books on Ciaphius Cain (fun reads, although I donít get a lot of the Warhammer stuff). Itís going to be interspersed with A Guide to Small-Unit Tactics and The Art of Expressing the Human Body. Iím going to try to pick up Jeet Kune Do. After that, Iíve got a stack of books to read about defending (and attacking) computer networks.

I also got a corn snake, but thatís a story for another day.

This post likely did not make me any happier, tougher, smarter, or richer. Probably not a good usage of limited time and effort.

Why don't you LIGHT YOUR HANDS ON FIRE AND PUNCH THE 'COON TO DEATH.
