Twiddling bits, sitting at home, tuesday, rambling

Well, I owe five questions to at least three nyms (ref), and I've been slack. To avoid further delay on my end, here are all of your questions:

  1. What do you want be when you grow up?

  2. What's your PM ( Primary Motivation: religion, raisson d'etre, what gets you out of bed in the morning )?

  3. What thing[s] do you want to do that you aren't, and why not?

  4. What's wrong with America (or if you want to pick on Americans instead, that's fine too)? Name something that can be done about it. Why haven't you done that already?

  5. Pick a song that embodies your philosophy on life.



Here are some bits of data that might interest various individuals (or nyms): DeKalb Continuing Education offers Spanish I in various schedules at either Clarkston or Dunwoody for $ 225 USD (includes textbook). Spanish II is 199 and uses the same text.
Although I'm glancing at the Spring listings, and those classes have started (GPC thinks spring starts in January), they were is the following schema: 5 Saturdays (10-13:15), eight Mondays and Wednesdays (2900-2100), or eight Tues/Thurs (1900-2100). Each class is 16 hrs and 1.6 CEU. The Spanish II classes start in early March, so they may in fact be available. They also offer two classes of Chinese.

Bnetd, the controversial video game networking software project (They implemented the functionality of Blizzard corp's Battle.net service for those behind firewalls. Blizzard's attack weasels asserted that they were enabling people to use bootled copies of Blizzard's games. They were not.), has been absorbed into the Player Vs Player Gaming Network project, over at http://www.pvpgn.org/ A quick look over the FAQ shows that they may support every game Blizzard ever manufactured, but getting the Diablo II series games going is more work than the rest.

Computer Consulting 101 dot com is offering to let you listen to a four part audio seminar: "Discover 5 Easy Ways to Grow Your Computer Consulting Business" in the hope that you will be enticed to purchase their Professional Kit of audio CD, sample documents, and such for about $400 USD. See http://www.computerconsultingkit.com/listen-now/ I haven't listened to it yet, and I am quite skeptical, but I thought this might interest the readership, perhaps only as entertainment. The topic of the computer business is distressing to me personally, as I have no Johnsons, no clients, and no paying gigs scheduled before the dreizeitverdammt Haunted House. (Contrast with November 2003)

And as for the rest of it, I am still gathering data, and have no conclusions to report. I'm reading through Stranger in a Strange Land on my palm, and I have paperbacks of Angels and Demons and three Ringworld books queued up. Jane Eyre has gone all Dickens on me (reform school, yuck), and I may have to give up on it. Particularly after fighting through the nut-hatch scenes in EST and the nasty nightmare that gave me the next night *shudder*, the memory of which has faded down to just my reactions.
