On and on and on and on and on ...

I feel like I haven't slept in a month. I just feel like shit, day in and day out. Hope I'm not starting to burn out. I need a break from the uncompromising routine.

In other news, Christmas is coming. I signed up for the Secret Santa on OCAU. Still haven't received my present yet, and neither has my SS.

My brother sent me a USB modem. It doesn't work. W2K simply freezes every time it tries to dial anything with it. I'll try installing another flavour of Windows and see if it works with any of them. I have a sneaking suspicion it may not be able to draw enough power through the USB port (it is USB powered). I'd like to send it back and get some speakers, maybe a nice little 2.1 set, but the place he sent it from is closed until 13th January. Oh well. I'll send it back then.

My Mum got me a pair of shorts and a shirt. She didn't wrap it, just put it in one of those gift bags. There's a multitude of presents for me and Emma under Emma's parents' and our tree.

Right now I'm just going to be glad for the break from work I think. I've been moody, a little depressed lately with work. Its difficult to stay happy all the time there. I will look for other work occasionally now that this job has stabilised. I don't want to stay here for TOO long.

Merry Xmas mate, instead of getting 2.1 speakers have you thought about 5.1 speakers, Scorpion Tech have a set of Creative Labs 5.1 Inspire 53000 speakers for only $235.00 plus delivery. I'm not sure how much your brother spent on the modem, but maybe you could make up the difference on a set of those, I bet they'd rock...

End Geekness

I know the whole burnt out feeling, I'll be getting a total of 4.5 days off over the Xmas/NY period. I haven't had a decent holiday since March this year, I've taken a day off here and there, but that only holds up for so long. I'm also looking at taking some more holidays at March 2003, so not much hope for me...

Take it easy!

Does an ISA SB Awe 64 output 5.1 sound?


I might check later though. Yes, there's always the "buy it now and save money on them later" but then, I don't know how much I'll be spending on my computer in the future.

There's also a set of 4.1's on super special there for $99, the same cost as the modem, if you looked =) But I decided to look at a good set of 2.1's for the above reason.
