Black Shirts




I'd appreciate if people stopped gifting me black t-shirts, feels like they're giving me coal.

This year they did not give me anything ... which makes me feel a little bad because I'm not too old either.

I have been nagging my brother for a New 3DS for a year now and i still didn't get it >:O nor any other present.

Xmas Damage report:

Untold Liver and Kidney damage (Xmas Day).
Killed an undetermined amount of Brain Cells (Xmas Day).
Emptied out all of my Electrolytes (Xmas Day).

Lost one Seagate Archive 8Tb HDD, and the third drive from Seagate that died prematurely. (luckily, this time, I was able to back the data up).

Lost a lot of money on one unplanned, emergency and rather expensive 10Tb WD Gold Enterprise 7,200RPM HDD (Never buying Seagate again!).
Lost all of Xmas Eve cloning nearly 8Tb's of data to a new and expensive HDD (All day and night).

Lost 5 hours of my life fixing my rig after it got damaged by NVIDIA's woeful 388.71 Display driver (Xmas Day).

Had to deal with the extended family. *Ugh!

Boxing Day Hangover (Today).


Overall, not the merriest Xmas I've had (For me or my wallet).

Got a 4-pack of Monster Energy and Red Bull, some chocolate bars, and a $25 gift card for Amazon. That's just what I got from my parents, I already bought a shit load of stuff for myself using my paychecks. I've started to amass a CD collection of my favorite bands. So far I own full discographies of six bands (Dream Theater, Opeth, Tool, Lost Horizon, Liquid Tension Experiment and Dragonforce).

This year's Christmas was kinda lacking in gifts other than the usual socks and undies but I'm okay with that. We were short on money and I enjoy Christmas mostly just for the dinner and the chill time anyway. I did at least get a new pillow, though, so finally I can get some decent sleep without feeling like shit in the morning.


I also got some cool items gifted to me by a bunch of friends on a website game, and treated myself to about $40 worth (in ingame currency) of more good stuff on said game, so that's pretty neato.

I live 5,000 miles from my family, so gifts tend to be gift cards. But this year I got a rather weird selection:


- Two biographies

- Tickets to an ice hockey game

- Tickets to the Seattle Symphony Orchestra

- Amazon vouchers for a different country from where I live

- A bottle opener that looks like a parrot

- Purple socks

- A selection of jokes about cheese

- Foreign chocolate

- A Japanese plant pot shaped like a cat with its tongue hanging out


Yeah, it was a weird Christmas!

4 Steam games, 3 of which I bought myself and 1 was gifted to me.

The joy of successfully setting up a virtual machine running Windows 98.

The additional joy of successfully playing Unreal on the former.

Oh boy!! Did you do that manually bit-by-bit??

Doesn't the operating system of you choice provide an automatic backup/restore?
