As anyone who read this may have noticed (then again, 90% of the people on my friends list havent logged in since 2008 or so) i haven't posted in years. Much has changed. MUCH has changed.

I'm now on my own domain - http://bigstan.net - posting just as intermittently as before.

we now return to your regularly scheduled inactivity.

For those following such things, I offer last night's portents of the apocolypse:

I drank alcohol.

I killed the bottle.

...with my MOTHER.

formatting 2 laptops in as many days, downloading apps like a fiend, trying to get them all finished before my week gets sucked into the never-ending vortex of 5am mornings... a guy needs something to listen to.

Enter last.fm

Plug in an artist you like, and listen to streaming audio from that artist, and artists like them. Decent quality audio. (128kbps)

streaming music, right?  whats new about that?

enter open source TheLastRipper ... sucks the streams right out, saves them to 128k mp3's,ID3's them, and files them by artist to the folder of your choice. all you have to have is a log in and a hard drive.

This might be one of those times when i'm behind the times on things, but an automated ripper/tagger/filer based on genre/artist is OK by me.

Project Update

March 7th, 2009 (12:05 am)

current mood: tired

First off, I cannot believe the amount of support I have received from quite a few people whom I have talked to about this - most of whom don't read this journal.

brmj, please don't think I ignored your post/offer of help. With school and work, I have had my nose in a phone or a book or homework for the last $diety-knows-how-long.

After emailing the prof and doing bean-counting with him, I AM getting a 100 in all of my other projects.My prof understands where I am in my life, and luckily knows that I am no slacking 18 year old kid trying to get out of working by going to college.  He honestly advised me to let it go, and focus on where I need to - that I could not show up anymore in class and I would still get a C.

While the thought kind of gets the hairs on the back of my neck up, in the grand scheme of things, it's not going to matter what grade I got in the class after i get my degree - only that I passed. And I did learn from this class that I am NOT the programming type. Give me the Cisco OS and Active Directory over classes and objects any day.

So, for the first time since I started my back-to-college career in 2002 - I am choosing to not turn in an assignment. And I am forcing myself to be OK with this.
