Daft Punk

Here‘s what to expect from Daft Punk’s upcoming album. It’s scheduled to come out in about 2 weeks. I fell in love with the first album, Homework, and from the pieces of songs that I’ve heard thus far, I think it’s going to happen again. Sounds really good. *anticipation*

Site Stuff

I added a few things on the sidebar over there to your right. The first is a link to the cover (splash page, entrance page, etc). I think there’s a lot of people that come directly to this page without passing through the cover. Now they can take a peek. I’ll also be adding a cover archive or something similar (there used to be one, for those that have been around for a while). The next addition is an archive of all past front posts. You can view the archives by month or search them for keywords. The search isn’t too fancy, just a plain keyword search (ie no boolean operators, any/all/phrase options, etc). It’s still kind of neat to look back at old posts (too bad I lost all the stuff from Jan 99 to Oct 99). The final addition is my current high score on Gigawing :). You’ll all find that useful I’m sure.

Napster

I haven’t been paying too much attention to the Napster shenanigans, but apparently it’s going to stay up for the time being. There was question as to whether it would go down today or not. I heard on the radio though that in June it becomes a $5/month pay service. But don’t quote me on that. Regardless, I think it’s still worth it.

Tickets

I’ve gotten two traffic tickets before I got my third one last December. I went to court for the other two, and they were both reduced to charges that didn’t show up on my record. So, I went to court for this third one this week. I talked to the officer that pulled me over for a couple of minutes. He decided to reduce my charge again (to something that doesn’t show up on my record). So, I’ve gotten three tickets thus far but still have a clean record. Can’t beat that with a stick.

And I don’t seem to sleep anymore. Twice in the last 10 days I’ve stayed up all night. On the other days, I go to bed around 2 or 3 am. I think it’s all Wojo‘s fault. Oh, him and also Gigawing. I love that game.

Sweet, my TiVo is recording Space Balls for me. How’d it know? And finally, here’s some good advice: if you’re taking pictures in blacklight, you need to use the flash. Otherwise everything looks purple. Go figure.

Netscape

I figured out why the front page takes so long to load in Netscape 4.x. Well, not only does it take a long time to load, but it locks up Netscape for a good 10-20 seconds. It’s quite a pain. It’s because there’s so many tables on this page. It seems that Netscape downloads all the code for the page and then spends forever interpreting the code. Really stupid. I suppose I should remedy that, eh? It doesn’t affect Netscape 6. How many people even use Netscape 4.x anymore? It’s too late at night to be thinking about this.

Oh, I did fix a bug in the script that takes news posts to the forum. It was messing up forum post counts among other things.
