can't buy what i want because it's free...

[ The Zip Drive ]

Well, I set up my zip drive to be sold on ebay. Tested it the other day, and it appeared to suffer CoD (Click of Death). Aaaarrggh. There was a suggested solution here, although it seems a bit vague in the details. I'll try it though, otherwise I'll have to cancel the auction or something.

I found it fascinating that Zip drives won't function without the top cover. Its got a metal contact that reaches down from the cover I guess to complete some sort of circuit or close some gate.

[ The job front ]
I got an interview at one place. They weren't really crash hot on the interviewing skills, I think I did pretty well anyway.

[ The Games ]
Played a marathon of Deus Ex over the weekend; starting Friday night and ending Sunday afternoon, I managed to play it through on hard difficulty, and found every single secret location, nook cranny and "extra experience" spot that I missed before. Also discovered the "quick save" and "quick load" feature. Oh yes, very handy that feature. Wouldn't mind trying the multiplayer although I don't think it will be all that crash hot.

I gave up on NOLF, because I've gotten stuck in a level somewhere along the way. Might get a walkthrough to find out where I might have gone wrong.

I tripped over my Darryl's headphones cord, and I've done something to the plug at either end. Its a pity, they were nice headphones too ... should be fixable though. Maybe its a sign I should buy a new set ... I've drooled over BBT's Sennheisers long enough :p

[ The Shopping List ]

On the shopping list after I get back from Hobart first up is a new monitor though. At the moment I have my sights set on either a Hitachi CM721F (19" Flatscreen) or a Samsung Syncmaster 955DF (also 19" Flat). I'm also going to get my phone LED's changed, probably to look something like this, though not through those guys because they charge $45 USD for an International delivery. I'll be doing it through these guys. ($45 AUD inc express post).

[ The unit ]

Yeah, so we should be moving out of Emma's parents place in the next week or two, hopefully, into our unit somewhere in Emerald. Its not a bad place, quite comfortable with an evaporative cooler. Non-furnished, but thats okay too.

Other than that. not much to speak of :p
