I felt really

I felt really, really terrible last night. I think it was a combination of being half-sick, then going to my aunt and uncle's house where everyone smokes. I inhaled about 3 packs worth, which made me miserable. When I got home, I watched Simpsons but could...

My good buddy

My good buddy Brian Kelly stopped by Peoria for Easter and gave me a call yesterday. We went out to see Panic Room. I ran into my other good Bryan buddy, Bryan J. Polk. If only I had run into Wolford... it would have been the night I saw all of my Bry(i)an...

Shit.

Well, I had many things planned to do today. Unfortunately, I probably won't get around to doing them. Why, you ask? Because I have a feeling those viruses I've been getting have been doing more damage than I originally thought. I bought some Antivirus...

Fabish called me

Fabish called me into his room just a couple of minutes ago, all excited to show me something. I walked in and he showed me his computer screen, and he had just opened up Morpheus. He wanted to show me the banner ad at the top of the opening screen....

A clean computer

A clean computer is a happy computer. I forgot to back up my address book, so I lost that. But other than that, I am up and running to go again. That wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. I thought for sure I'd lose a lot of stuff.

So the latest

So, the latest is that the guy who ripped me off and didn't pay me for the webpage I did for him started sending me viruses. I used an email tracker to see if I could figure out the IP, which I did pretty easily. I reported him to his ISP and sent him an...

I feel about

I feel about 300 times better today. My dad called me to see if I wanted to go out to lunch with him, and while I was talking to him, my mom stopped by to drop off my lunch. It was a weird coincidence. I felt like crap, but I'm not sure it was a bad...

So I haven't

So, I haven't updated for a few days. Here's the update covering everything. Friday, Andrea called me and we went out for lunch. I haven't seen her or talked to her since my senior year of high school, so it's been almost 5 years. With the whole Barb...

My parents took

My parents took me out to Famous Daves last night, which was excellent. Then I had to help them fix up my dad's new office, carrying stuff from one room to the other and blah blah blah. Not much else up on my front. Been applying to get more jobs, nothing...

Andrew Haben removed

Andrew Haben removed his webpage created in my honor. I'm really disappointed. Wolford came into town last night, so me, him, and Polk went out for drinks and a little din din. Alan had one of his shitastic parties, so I locked myself in my room. When I...

Junkmachine.com's first arch

Junkmachine.com's first arch enemy has fought back. Awesome. Read about it on junkmachine.com.

So I was

So, I was checking through my logs to see what kind of traffic junkmachine.com has been getting, and ran across something weird. [http://www.zadara.cz/Programy%20internet/java_prog.htm][1] I haven't the slightest idea what that page says, but it sure...

a conversation with my mom

Mom: "Tim, how would you feel about being Jack's Godfather?" Tim: "Oh no, they're not going to ask me, are they?" Mom: "Why? Don't you want to be?" Tim: "No, I don't. I hope they don't ask me. I'd have to say no." Mom: "Why would you say no?" Tim: "Well, I...

Fucking son of a bitch.

I called our family lawyer today to see what I can do about this guy wasting a week of time in which I could have been making money. Unfortunately his advice was to forget it. It would take $300 to get the case into small claims court with no guarantee...

I am up

I am up way too late for my own good. I just compiled a bunch of tax stuff and will be taking it to H&R Block tomorrow. I usually do my own taxes, but this year it's just too much for me to handle. I was employed until September 1st, then self employed for...

fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCK FUCK FUCK.

So, I'm a bit pissed off. The guy I was doing the webpage for refuses to pay me for services rendered. I have been more than reasonable throughout the course of the project, doing things above and beyond what was required of me, and he fucking turned me...

a reminder on why I hate freelancing and wanted to do the web thing.

Anyhoo, I've bene hard at work for far too long on this web page I'm doing for one of my clients. He's from Singapore, and his English is not the best I've ever heard (or read, as the case may be) so getting the project done has been pretty trying. And...

It was a

It was a good weekend. Friday I did nothing. I worked on a project trying to get it out the door and get the money in my hand. Saturday I went up to visit Jaimee. It was a good visit. I came home today to my check from Iona, which makes me much, much,...

Waking up and

Waking up and being able to take a hot shower is something most people take for granted. Not me.

Today my dad

Today my dad took me out to lunch and gave me some extra cash so money isn't quite as tight now. That's a good feeling... knowing I can spend a little money on groceries or pay more than the minimum on my credit cards. I took Abby to the park and printed...
