  1. The Computer Gods Hate Me

    My Tablet PC isn’t feeling very well. It refuses to finish booting Windows. After some messing around, I found out that a device driver, d346bus.sys, is not loading well. A quick google search indicates that I’m not the only one with problem. Howe…

  2. Fire Alarm and Free Pizza

    Monday’s aren’t too bad really. I had a hour and fifty minute block of EPICs followed by 50 minutes of hell in Calc and another 50 minutes of Chemistry with a really great Chem teacher (the best in the school, so say upper classmen). I had a lunch…

  3. iPod Saga Continues

    My iPod saga continues as my 20GB 3rd Gen iPod still is not working. I’ve taken it to BestBuy several times now, all with no change and I’m really getting fed up. Tomorrow I’m bribing my apartment mate to take to BestBuy where I hope to convince t…

  4. Boondocks

    Today was sort of like yesterday. I didn’t really do much. I do go to Boondocks today. It’s an overpriced family fun center…I got in for $1 though and recieved unlimited gokarts, bumber boats, mini-golf, lasertag, and 10 tokens for games, so I’m…

  5. Computer Woes

    I downloaded and installed Windows XP SP2 the other day and it was working just fine. However, it seems that there are still some issues with SP2 and iPod. So I had to roll back SP2 just now ;-( so that I could sync my iPod with my computer. Bummer.

  6. What I Did Today

    I went to Best Buy today to get my iPod back. It had a hard drive issue, so I had them fixed it. We’ll see if they did. I also went to Radio Shack and picked up a DPDT (Double Poll, Double Throw) switch for my speakers. I have on set of speakers a…

  7. 1 down, 127 to go

    The first week of college is over, and was pretty impressed. Most of my classes are only 50 minutes long, the exception being EPICS. The only classes that I have a distaste for right now is Calc 1. We have a foreign teacher who is sometimes hard t…

  8. Prank emails

    I got this in my inbox the other day:
    From: Best Buy Customer Service [customerservice@bestbuy.com]
    To: Andrew Ferguson

    Re: Your iPod
    Dear Mr. Ferguson,
    We received your complaint regarding your desire to exchange your 3rd generation iPod…

  9. Some people just don’t get it

    If you’ve known me for any amount of time, you should probably know that I have big issues with copyright laws, specifically the move towards putting power (and money) in he hands of corporate conglomerates and taking it away from the consumer. Fo…

  10. First Day

    The first day of college was all I dreamed it would be, and more. I woke up at 10:15ish, had some breakfast then meandered down to my 11 o’clock class only to find no one there. So I went to the Student Center and transfering my music ratings. I t…
