I don't like emusic.

I got a 50-song trial on emusic.com from John Walkenbach's blog, and it seems like a very nice service. Downloads were very quick, and it was easy to find music. The problem I had is that they advertised entire albums as "free music" when only certain tracks were free. Downloading a few albums I thought would be free ate through a good chunk of my trial. You also cannot cancel a download in your queue to get your credits back. Those little problems were enough for me to decide not to get a full subscription to the site.

I lied...

I don't feel like answering those stupid questions daily.

I am thinking of joining emusic... I'll let you know what music I think is worth downloading if I do.

I feel like updating this....

I haven't updated in months, so I found a theme that should keep me busy on here for a few weeks. My RA posted a lots of questions in our hall that have you choose between two seemingly equal options, but I think the answer is pretty obvious for most of them. I'm going to try to post one along with my answer daily.

Todays Question: Would you rather have you cell phone function to air horn or tazer?

The obvious choice is to turn off your phone and never use it again, but if I had to choose I would go with tazer. Imagine: You're in Meijer's, where you always get horrible reception. You call a friend for advice in picking which brand of something to buy, and the call drops. You keep talking to the phone, saying things like "Hello... Can you hear me now?" and suddenly an air horn goes off in your ear! Congratulations, you've just broken an eardrum. I would much rather be electrocuted on a regular basis than lose my hearing the first time someone calls me back while the phone is still to my ear.

So... people think I should update. Unfortunately, I'm really boring. But I do have a job now! That's pretty cool... I work at the Bernhard Computing Center programming stuff for the lab. I also have an account on World of Warcraft now...

Also, I think I am going crazy. I'm pretty sure I just heard a marching band playing music from Phantom of the Opera outside my window.

If you don't like Dustin, I recommend you bid on this, so he actually has to go through the trouble of mailing it.

It looks like Yahoo stole Google's interface. I'm not sure when this happened, but I think it's pretty crazy. The URL for that version is search.yahoo.com



Don't forget Yahoo's useful defintion lookup tool!

I'm back at Western now, and pretty much moved in! I haven't done anything really worth talking about, but I felt like I should update it. We watched Evil Alien Conquerers today. I think Eric's comment tells you everything you need to know about it: "I wonder if some guys were just sitting around and said 'I wonder just how B a B-movie can get...' and then went out and tried it." It was a great show, very strange and funny. Watch it. Western has a new authentication system on ResNet to prevent routers, but we've already worked around it. We've got free wired and wireless internet in our room now. I'm bored, and sort of tired, so I'm going to lay down soon. Night! Also, the first person to post a comment wins a free cookie! I have chocolate chip and butterscotch ones. Yum.

I'm not dead.

If frogs were like pancakes, I'd be a millionaire.
