OMG OMG my new PC is back from the shop, after I killed its’ brain with some bad wiring. It’s back, it’s back, it’s back!

Now I can continue to run Linux on the old box while gaming and streaming video on the new one as planned. Eeeeeeexcellent.

King Snake and a.net refuse to stop inundating me with scary robot video data.



Big Dog screams all sorts of “Mankind is doomed.” Not to mention Asimo. We shouldn’t make them able to go uphill in the ice or sneak up and down stairs, people. Seriously, it’s really basic. You have to be able to get away by climbing or running outside. We’re all gonna die, you realize.

Aiko’s a whole different kettle of humanoids. The Sun really plays up the “creepy lonely guy” angle, not that they can be blamed. Obsession, curiosity, the need for companionship, the need to be recognized — all of these things are healthy when in their right place, and drive us to accomplish things, to strive — to change the world. And lonely grimy nerdy brilliant people sometimes need to believe they can change things.

Pssh. These people and their crazy robots. Okay, I gotta go — I am mass-moving media files from the old box to the new one so I can clear up hard drive space, downloading the Shin Megami Tensei Imagine! Online beta software, blogging, and just for good measure downloading the Home client software for PS3, which is displayed in a PIP window while I handle internet stuffs in the larger window. Catch ya later. ^_^

(20 years from now I’ll be behind this tech curve — the cranky old bum who surfs the net at the library all day because I refuse to get the fancy new direct-to-brainstem Bluetooth-enabled port surgery. I’ll rant about how it’s because of the government, and no one will take me seriously…)

The Big Dog video makes me sick with worry, but I don't know what disturbs me more about it -- the fact that it seemingly can't be tripped, or the creepily dainty way it walks.

fuseji fears robots stealing his old people medicine in 20 years .

I know, right? I can imagine it stepping primly over a mud puddle, and then rearing up and coming down on some hapless victim, punching those little legs right through the ol' chest cavity.


Okay, stop it now, imagination. Stop!

Lil' Jon to the rescue: http://www.todaysbigthing.com/2008/12/01

You and another friend have had some serious computer issue?

On the other hand..."PS3 Home CLinet"? Does this mean you are hooked into the PS3 network for video gaming? Buck wants to know if you play Call of Duty 4 online, he's all into finding new buddies to blow to smithereens. :)

My only computer problem is my propensity for toasting processors because I haven't hooked in my fan carefully enough. ;)

My PSN ID is the same as my Livejournal name. G'head and add me as a friend on there if you like! I don't really play very many shooters though... tend to like 3rd-person action stuff (Ninja Gaiden, Prince of Persia) or RPGs.

Navigating has been a bit of an experience -- it's been over a decade since I had any reason to be using unix-style commands -- but I'm just nerdly enough to enjoy the extra effort.
