Modified the script that builds the profile webpages so that it will automatically add new profiles to this updates page. And it's about fracken time! Why did it take me so long to do this? Now I can finally stop doing it by hand, which is way more annoying than you might think.

I just received an e-mail today from the mother of some girl who had been e-mailing me. In the message, she flat out told me never to contact her daughter again and if I did she would consider me a "predator" and take further action. I understand parents need to protect their children from evil predators, both online and off, but seriously.... what the hell, lady?! There is such a thing as "going overboard". If someone sends me a message, I'm going to respond, it's only common curtesy. It's not like I was asking for her address, phone number, and what she was wearing. The kid gave me some anime information and I thanked her for it. She asked me my name, and I told her... not like it's a secret, seeing as how it's on my e-mail signature. She asked where I live and I told her "California". No secret there either, and it's not like I gave her my address and phone number. Scan you kid's messages, that is truly the right thing to do, but don't go making unjustified accusations and threats to anyone who's ever sent her a message!

Remember how not too long ago I complained about Hewlett Packard's craptacular software? Well, just today, as I double-clicked on Internet Explorer, a dialog box came up attempting to install HPIZplus450, which is Hewlett Packard software, HP Image Zone Plus to be exact. This started coming up every time I tried to open Internet Explorer, and it wasn't just a dialog box asking if I wanted to install it. No, it was actually attempting to install it, and only gave me a dialog box that allowed me to cancel when it couldn't find some file it was looking for. But then you know what happens after I hit cancel? Huh, do ya? Can ya guess? It aborts the current installation... and then tries to install it again! Okay, but what about when I cancel that time too? If you guessed "it does the same thing", then you're right! It tries to install it again. So I went and completely removed all traces of HP imaging software anywhere on my computer, and that got my system back to normal. I'm sorry to have to say this, but I suggest everyone stay away from all HP software, and any HP products that require HP software. It seems HP is becoming a lot like Sony... craptacular.

Posted the anime profile of Fate/Stay Night. And, as always, I've been making various corrections and additions. I rarely mention that on the updates, as I pretty much do those every day. Not like I have much choice, the emails come everyday and I'm determined not to fall behind again like I did last year.

My wife just had her birthday the other day. Happy Birthday, Treese! Unfortunately she wasn't feeling to well, so we didn't go out and do anything. I got her a new alarm clock, as she was really hating her current one. She said she could hear it just being on, never mind the actual alarm. So this new one seems to run quieter. I also got her a few DVDs, and an MP3 player which will hopefully be arriving soon.

I bought a new keyboard last week, the new Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000. Got it off of eBay for pretty cheap, and so far it seems to be working nice. It takes some getting used to, though. My previous keyboard was also one of those split, curved ergonomic types, but even so the key spacing seems to be different. And the "6" key is on the wrong side of the split. You're supposed to hit the "6" key with your right hand, not you left hand.

I love how quiet the keystrokes are (well, all except for the right side of the spacebar, that thing is pretty loud compared to all the other keys, even the left side of the spacebar, which is whisper quiet). I also like having the new shortcut keys up above. The are quite convenient. The padded wrist rest is really nice too, and that plastic attachment that raises the keyboard up at an angle really does make it more comfortable. A downside, I've noticed, is that it's black. Yeah, black looks really cool, but when it's dark, it's very difficult to see the keys.

This week Victor and I went out to the storage area again and pulled out a bunch of arcade machines to clean up and take pictures of. We're selling all the stuff for the guy who owns them, which is helping with the money situation. Unfortunately, it's been real hot here lately, which makes that kind of physical work all the more annoying. Last time I brought home two plastic crates full of manuals that I had to scan in (just the covers, not the entire manual). This time, there was only one crate of manuals that we could reach. It still sucks, but definitely better than two.
