Today was uniquely Desian...

Today has been...bizarre. It was one of those uniquely Desian days (I say Desian, because I am one of the few who could actually come up with a day this weird).

It started off at about 6 with a shower, continued a bit later with thunder, lightning and rain, classmates whose relatives are dropping like flies, then passing a calpoly LJ user (who doesn't know who I am...but I recognized them anyway), gradually making way for gaggles of high school students running all over campus, a network cable that's one inch too short, a segfaulting C program, oddly-behaving freeway traffic, and ending with the most "normal" part of my day so far -- AIMing with kezzerdryx.

Whew. Breathe.

OK, ready? Good.

It was...odd. I passed an LJ user who is in calpoly on my way to the CSL after Physics. I know they don't know who I am, and the only reason I recognized them is because of their pic. It seems weird to see someone who posts on LJ IRL -- someone who I have never talked to, and maybe never will talk to.

There were tons of high-schoolers on campus today, probably for summer advising, or tours, or some such. I remember thinking, "they're all going to be little freshmen next year"...and then I stopped myself, and thought "I was a little freshman not that long ago", and then, "god, I'm OLD!!". (Shutup, stop laughing, I know most of you are older than me.)

I got all the machines in 301 wired up and cable-tied properly today...except for one. The network cable was literally one inch too short. Of course, the one I'm going to make/have made tomorrow will be a couple feet longer, just in case.

My C knowledge is sooooo rusty. I was trying to help this girl debug a C program today right before the CSL closed, it was segfaulting, and I could *not* figure out why. I need to sit down and work on C some more, at some point in the indeterminate future...

Ugh. Time to go triage bugs, and hunt myself some dinner (Condors don't forage, they hunt).

    Well, I'm off to Dreamwidth. I hope to see you all there! Nice knowing you, LJ. It's been grand. — Des

  • A fresh start?

    So I'm thinking of moving away from LJ. Every time I glance at my ad blocker, there are an uncomfortably-large number of advertising and tracking…

    It’s that time of the year again -- another year has passed, and as usual, I don’t finish reflecting on it until the first 3 months of the following…
