[music |Wings game]

  • The Detroit Tigers won game 2 of their 5-game series against the Yankees. They officially have a chance to take the series: they've got home field advantage now.
  • According to an AP article, Bush has used signing statements to claim his right to completely disregard (no mere "interpretation") provisions of the bills he signs, in direct contravention to the Constitutional system by which the executive branch carries out the laws as written by the legislative branch. Apparently the president needs a refresher course in high school civics.
  • The Detroit Red Wings season started about half an hour ago. GO WINGS
  • Yesterday I drove most of the way to Bellingham to pick up some tickets for a Wings game in March, only to be called by the guy I'm buying them from and told he's not actually in town. He remembered to email me about this approximately half an hour before we were supposed to meet... i.e. an hour after I'd needed to leave to get there on time. Sigh. On the other hand, at least he's willing to mail them to me now.
  • Enjoying the hell out of our new DSes. According to Big Brain Academy, apparently I'm good at math.
  • Bit the bullet and bought hosting for the webcomic project yesterday. DreamHost is so awesome. Because of a sale they were having... I paid $91 for the next two years for 200 GB disk and 2 T transfer/month, with both of those limits on a scheduled increase. (By the time I start my comic in February, I'll have 216 GB disk and 2.26 T transfer/month...) (Oh, and Rob, the temporary increase in disk and transfer limits I mentioned? Turns out it wasn't temporary. :D)
  • Also? DreamHost has one-click automatic installers for phpBB and MediaWiki and WordPress and, and... yeah. This is going to be awesome. If you're in the market for hosting, check them out, and consider mentioning my referral...

Eee... Yes. I still need your friendcode, though, dammit. Because we both use the same Tetris cartridge, we have the same friend code, whee!

:D And, haha, yes -- I heart DreamHost. I am so utterly satisfied with my buying decision from them from a while ago. XD

You should've mentioned you were looking for a webhost, I could've gotten you a disgustingly massive discount on Dreamhost. :(

I actually got over 50% off through their anniversary promo code... the existing disgustingly massive discount was what motivated me to do it yesterday.

Did you use the super777 code? There's another one I've seen, too, but I'd have to look to find out exactly what it offers.

Mine was a "9999" code for their ninth anniversary...

Is that code still active? *boggle* I thought it ended two years ago, since it was for their seventh anniversary.

If it's not usually either "777" or "888" will work. I believe "super777" is the currently active one, however. ;)

Whoo-hoo, DreamHost!

Plus, they have entertaining e-mail newsletters.

Bahaha, indeed. Their newsletters are entirely too amusing for being what they are... which is, er, server updates and such.

Wait, the Yankees are playing against the Tigers? And losing? Really? (miang, we need to start watching the baseball playoffs now.)

...wait, the hockey season started? Oh for hell's sake, I'm working too much.

Can't wait to see the new project!

Well, the series is tied. But of the remaining three games, two of them are in Detroit...

...Yes. And the Wings got slaughtered yesterday. Dammit.

...I can't wait to do the next project.

I don't really have anything to add to the discussion...

BUT...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOYO! Many happy returns on the day of your birth!
