Got my first final tomorrow. EECS 370. Should be good.

Yesterday a "hacker" attacked my computer. Dropped a remote control client on it while my firewall was down, and proceeded to do the following:
- remove my background image.
- close some of my windows.
- use my name on IRC to tell people I was "a fag" and "a major homosexual".
- rearrange my QuickLaunch icons.
He also unintentionally did the following:
- left a fairly large amount of identification information in the event logs, to the point of me being able to determine the exact machine from which the "attack" originated.

Reeeeal fucking smart. I would be surprised if this guy were even a day over 15. Probably less. Anyway. Contacting his hosting service tomorrow, requesting information on the user in question, and contacting ResComp and/or Student Legal Services to inquire about the feasibility and possible benefits of legal proceedings against him. Idiot.
Additionally, I have friends willing to take things into their own hands.

Other good stuff follows:

Saw Harry Potter last night with Rachel. Finally. Damned good.

Got a new coat today; my old one was falling apart.

Visited my high school today, saw some of my teachers, spent a while chatting. It was great.

My collectors-edition Star Destroyer arrived at home today. Biggest Lego model EVER. Package says it's intended for ages 16 and up. Whoo.

Final tomorrow. Er, today. In 9.5 hours. Goodnight.

Dream jobs

* Lego Master Builder
* Quiz-show question-writer
* Any job for which the responsibilities consist entirely of innovation and thinking, with little "real work".

That's all, for now.

A note:

All I need is an effective costume and a metric fuckton of bleach in my hair, and I could cosplay Lucius Malfoy rather effectively.
