That is all.
That is all.
Me? I’ve been working a bunch, although no more than usual I suppose. I’m alsoĂ‚Â going to buy a house… I think. It’s a little up in the air right now, but I was approved for a mortgage (foolish bank!) and I think I can even afford it (yay!). It’ll be easier with a roommate/renter though, so I might have a friend move in, then I can eat real food.Ă‚Â Instead of just plain white rice I’ll be able to eat rice and beans! Healthy for the win.
On a website note… I really don’t know. I don’t have a freaking clue. The speeds were being terrible again, so I began to take up Globat on their whole, “switch servers” offer, and then they told me I would have to be responsible for all the backup and restore, etc, so I just kinda put it off and put it off… although I did do a file backup last night, so now all I need to do is backup the DB and I should be good to go. But now I look at my time log (I started logging the loadtimes of the site.. I thinkĂ‚Â I mentioned that before) and it looks like I haven’t had a really slow load for about a week (70 and 30 second load times on Sep 6th), so now I don’t know what I’m going to do. I think I’m going to give it another little while and see if this speed up is a permanent thing before I ask them to move me.
Also, I just got this email, from one David W. Lloyd. Ever heard of him? He also goes by the pseudonym djpretzel. Now have you heard of him? … Yeah didn’t think so. Well he runs this site called OverClocked ReMix. It’s a site devoted to video game music (yeah that’s right, like the Super Mario Brothers’ theme) or, should I say, remixes of video game music. I used to be a bigĂ‚Â member of the site actually, have my own song on there, used to help judge submissions to the site, but I kinda stopped visiting there so much when I started working… Anyway, like I said, I got this email, and it’s basically Dave begging me personally (Ha!) to pimp out this new album that the site put out, that nobody seems to like or care about so far. I guess it’s all music from some game called Final Fantasy VII (however you pronounce that, is it “Vee”? “Vie”?). Never heard of it myself, but I’m told it was a big flop and nobody really liked it. Especially the music, so I don’t know why they’d go to all the trouble of having like 42 different artists working to make 45 separate tracks for some crappy game that came out like 10 years ago (the last few sentences are an example ofĂ‚Â sarcasm btw). But anyway, I figure I owe the guy or something since I used tonnes of his bandwidth over the years, and generally made a spectacle of myself in the chat room (then suddenly disappeared into the night), so here it is:
