Outages and Dual Heads

I've been scanned repeatedly in the past 24 hours for an open proxy... it's starting to get rather annoying. I even had someone poking at my telnet port this morning. Sheesh.

Also had a power outage this morning...well, more of a voltage drop. The lights started flickering while I was in the shower...which was rather annoying, because I had to jump out and go unplug deneb to prevent its power supply from shitting itself. And PG&E has changed their electrical outage report hotline thing, so I now have to give them an account number whenever I call. Unfortunately, it just so happens that my landlady is the one who pays the electric bill... so I don't even have the account number. Meh.

It took me all of 15 minutes once I thought of it, but I now have a dual-headed 1600x1200 desktop, thanks to deneb's 19-inch monitor, and alnath's video card.

nVidia makes some pretty decent hardware. :)

Ya know.. I still don't think you are a geek. BTW, just what is a geeky mood? *chuckles* ;-)

It's when I start doing geeky things, and waste time on them, just for the hell of it. Last night I decided "hey! let's see if I can get my laptop to support two monitors..." and what do you know... I have my email on one monitor, and LJ up on another. :)

I hear normal people have a word for it... procrastinating. ;)

Normal people? *looks around* Where are the normal people? They should be put in a zoo so all the odd people can watch them in fascination. LoL

Procrastinating? Is that what some people call it? ;-)

The only reason it hasn't been done already is because there aren't any normal people in this state. We're all terrorist-loving, Linux-using commie hippies out here. (Well, except for Hollywood and the RIAA...they're refreshingly normal. :p) </sarcasm>

OK...time for school.
