Fuck life. All week at work I've been getting blamed for things I never did, even things that never actually happened. And at home, things are worse. Apparently, my parents decided to give about half the floor space left in my room and one of my dressers to my sister, which, as usual, I don't find out until they're pulling the drawers out and telling me to throw the contents in the trash.

This morning, my stepdad throws out a tub of margarine that was more than half full because he didn't like the way I was using it - mind you, when he uses butter, he does practically the same thing, he rubs it the whole stick on a surface, only he also leaves the entire stick out sometimes for days before putting it back in the fridge - and in the same conversation(one-way of course) implies once again I've no right to be pissed off about anything. I suppose he wants me to be just like him, taking pills or smoking weed whenever anything goes wrong, or just every half hour somehow whenever nothing does. Maybe I should take so many fucking happy pills until my head explodes, or perhaps feed him so many that his does.



On top of that, I've now read through Vector's posts in the sad thread, and am very willing to murder both her ex and her parents.
Don't worry, I'm sure I'm going to snap soon, so all you need to do is point me in their general direction.

... so how much longer until you can move out, Ak? Having a definite date/time frame might help deal with those people apparently squatting in your home.

You mean "until they get fed up with imaginary bullshit and kick me out/I snap and go on an axe-killing spree"? No idea.


There was another thing that pissed me off this week. The college had some comedian perform. Actually two, the warmup and the headliner. The first guy, one of his jokes was "I'm broke, but I'm white-guy broke, so it's okay." and also "I was trying to negotiate my pay, which was $9 and hour, but I'd get a 401k.". Shouldn't be too hard to figure out how that pisses me off.
The headliner, his first joke was "You ever date a girl and find out she was retarded?". How the fuck is that funny? The only good news was, there actually wasn't that much laughter coming from the crowd.

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

mac mini, i will have your hide, i will wear your entrails around my neck like a fur scarf, your indignation and sputtery uselessness at my introduction of linux, your brethren by heritage, shall have you subjected to a wrath you've never before known in your safe and sheltered life as a computer for loan and hire

mac mini

make your time

I might have to install OSX so I can install Bootcamp or rEFIt or whatever so I can install Linux so I can use Linux without OSX. Bleghegh.

Yes, I had a neat idea for checking to see if two curves crossed that turns out to have relied on them not doing so an even number of times, because I'm bad at thinking things through. Would've been way more efficient than the method it looks like I'm going to have to employ (and also learn how to employ in the first place, because using scipy to find roots is both math and programming that I don't know how to do in this case).

EDIT: Let it never be said that I am a clever man, basically.

Rust...

Just Rust. My brother and I got raided, and were each killed at least 6 times trying to retake our house. I eventually managed to lock them inside, and they ran off when I opened the door about 15 minutes later. With all my guns, ammo, and most of my food. They were sitting on my food stocks, so they probably would've lasted longer than me anyway. I'm not even mad that they raided us, just that they stuck around for so damn long to rack up more kills.

So, because I'm taking part in a cyber defence competition we get access to microsoft dreamspark, a program where educational institutes and other organazations pay microsoft some kind of fee so that their students get free (to them) microsoft products.  I finally decided to take advantage of this, and "Brought" a copy of windows 7 for my new computer. 
So, to cover the first part of my rage
Things he/she doesn't mention-
The download manager not ever starting a download for twenty minutes, and just staying at zero percent.   
The download manager getting to some random percent downloaded, and then stopping. 
The download manager getting to some random percent downloaded and then giving you an error about corrupted files.
The download manager downloading the whole file after many, many tries, and then telling you the file is corrupted.
The download manager (At this point I just looked at the download manager and it has somehow went form 93% done to 67%.   I'm honestly not surprised).
The download manager getting to some random percent downloaded, and then telling you that the port is blocked.
Finally getting an ISO downloaded, set up, and somehow corrupted.  (This is based on the error code a BSOD is giving me, and how three quarters of the people who have that error code mention "I got this ISO from dreamsparks").
Yes, I know it's free.  But what am I going to do?  Pay over a hundred dollars to get something I already own?

Pirate it?
I assume that they gave you the serial number when you "bought" it, so you can just download the pirate copy and put the real serial number into it.

I don't think that there is any ethical problems with pirating something you already own, and it seems that it will be far less of a pain in the ass that way.

I think that part of the problem might be the specific .iso they provide, so I went ahead and ordered a copy of win7 professional, and I'm downloading that right now.   If that doesn't work my uncle actually has a bunch of boot disc and is coming over for a visit next week, so I'll have him bring one.
