  And the coutdown begins

Only a week and a half of school officially left.  then finals week..  I am so not ready for this..  Really really not ready..  I have to try and come up with a 25 page portfolio for English, I don’t know if I’ve written that much stuff over the semester..  Atleast not for his class..

All my other classes seem to be going fine.  Showed up at PoliSci on Friday, hadn’t gone Wednesday, and the class was fracking empty!  One other chick was there, she didn’t know what was going on either..  would have gone Monday, but Caleb was sick so I stayed at home with the kids (Jen was already at work..) I’ll do fine on the multiple choice portion of the test, it’s the essay that worries me..  That test is Friday too..  Frack!

I actually have to watch an hour of TV for English class.  I don’t watch an hour of tv in a day when I have nothing better to do, either I read a book, or I sit on my puter, or I play with the kinder..  Tis better that way I think..  Oh well..

Check out Liberated Games, it’s got old school games that have actually be released as freeware by the developers..  Some are source code only right now, but they usually link to people who have bothered to release binaries.

Caleb is playing with this Bionicle lego guy.  Attacking a container of wipes.  Pretending to be the bionicle yelling, “No no” as he shoves the thing into the opened wipe container and tries to close it.  He’s funny to watch.  If I had a camera....

AdSense isn’t turning to much right now for me..  Not even enough to pay Laurence hosting fees..  Then agian it could be that I am only using LinkUnits..  Did some optimizations so that Googlebot would spider the pages better, by making them appear to be static links.  When I get some time I’ll add Adsense blocks in some other places, discreetly of course.  Not trying to bombard anyone with ads, don’t want them to be annoying.

So I got tired of GAIM‘s footprint and having GTK installed for one application.  So I’m making the move to Jabber.  Right now I’ve got Psi running well.  Connected to myGoogle Talk account, gateways all setup for AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and MSN.  Let me tell you, that was a bear.  Ended up having to use Netlab.cz for AIM, MSN, and Yahoo, and Swiss Jabber for ICQ.  But it’s all running great now.  The plan is that I’ll .

“Shoes Shoes Socks” Caleb says.  Actually he’s been saying it for about 5 minutes ever since Jen said she was going to take the kids to drop off and rent new movies.  I think we are goign to switch to Netflix since Hollywood Video’s MVP program is now costing me $15 a month and I can’t get new releases at all.  3 bucks more I get 3 at a time from Netflix and no late fees raspberry Or I can pay $30 to Hollywood and do the same thing, except that there’s no time to wait for shipping or anything..  It really isn’t an easy decision..

Back to what I was saying.  The plan is to eventually switch from Psi to GTalk and use that.  But GTalk doesn’t support adding Gateways/Transports so I had to use Psi to set that up.  If GTalk has a smaller footprint then Psi and GAIM, I’ll be set.  Other wise I’ll just go back to Psi and use it..  Eventually I probably drop ICQ, just getting a lot of spam over it lately, nothing important.  Jabber is most likely the “wave of the future” or something so… Anyway, all you Jabbery people, you can reach me at tresni at gmail.com.  It’s federated wink
