Atrus' rant
Busy, again, at the worst times
(7/16/2002) I'm not at all happy with myself about the lack of comics. I've been meaning to put up at least one for a while, but I still haven't gotten to it. I was incredibly bored and had no comics most of June. Then July comes and I'm super busy and now I have comics! What's been going on? Well I worked and got payed for three days (money is good). Then over 2,000 accounts were added to keenspace, increasing the number from roughly 4,000 by 50%. The help forum has been really active with all sorts of problems. Then yesterday the server's hard drive filled up causing corrption of several important files. This evening the database driving the forums crashed, and the tables had to be converted to a new format.

To be honest, I expect to keenspace to die within a year unless they get their act together. The system was set up in a manner that might have been reasonable for 100 accounts. The system now has thousands and it hasn't been fixed. The admins are ignoring all problems until something breaks and people complain. It's bad.

Good news time. I finally got my computer built. The only problem at the moment is it doesn't have a connection to the internet. Which doesn't sound like a serious problem, but it makes getting software a major pain in the arse. For all zero of you who probaly care the specs are:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-7ZXE (wanted GA-7VRXP, they didn't carry it)
CPU: AMD Athalon 1800+ (1.5 GHz)
RAM: 512MB SDRAM (don't ask)
Hard Drive: Westren Digital 7200RPM 100GB Caviar (the one with the 8MB cache, w00t)
Video Crd: ATI Radeon 7500 (don't ask)
Capture Card: DV500+ (tried and true)
NIC: CNet PRO200
DVD-ROM: LG DRD-8160B (16x/48x)
CD-RW: Plextor PX-W4012A (40x12x40x)
Monitor: ViewSonic E70f-2


Kate's rant
Because time to us is irrelative
(6/18/02) You can't blame ME for the lack of comics. At least not this time. I HAD the comics, Nik just didn't update. Anyway, I'm getting ready for my trip to Japan, I hope to have more comics done by then. You know besides the whole "I get to go to Japan thing" I also have realized-(And for me, this is important, mind you!) I don't have to go SWIMTEAM! I personally hate swimming with a passion. It's boring, and slow, and not very exciting to do OR watch. It is also not a contact sport, and really no risk. (Unless you can't swim, and then you drown, but that doesn't happen to me. Not that I WANT to drown, or anything, but...Oh! And since I' m a lifeguard, I'd have to jump in and save anyone who's drowning anyway. I suppouse that would make things more exciting.) But anyway, contact sports are that much better.

Well, I dunno if I'll have a rant up before I go...nine days, actually! But anywho, that's it for now.
