AdventureCon - May 28-30. Gonna be there that Saturday. Decided against RCFM for the nearer, cheaper con, not to mention Billy Dee Williams autograph opportunity.

Dragon*Con - September 3-6. Gonna be there that Friday and/or Saturday. I may try snagging a cheap hotel room outside of Atlanta for that one and spending 2 days squeeing like a fangirl over the likes of Levar Burton and Brent Spiner.

If I can get the logistics of it figured out (and crash space for Friday night), I may try for Anthrocon on Friday and Saturday.

Also, things just got a little bit more sonic.

For those of you who've seen RL pics of me:
Other than Gay Chewbacca, what would I have some hope of ever cosplaying? I might actually try some if I make it to Dragon*Con or maybe AdventureCon.

When I ordered from Ramenbox, the box included a Ramenbox sticker, so I slapped it on my trusty ol' Strat clone. Welp, the Ramebox guys found it, and now it's up on their Ramenblog.

So I keep looking at the Dragon*Con guest list, and it looks like there's gonna be far too much awesomesauce there to pass it up. Brent Spiner, Levar Burton, Jonathan Frakes, James Randi, Adam Savage (not on the list, but he's mentioned going to D*C on Twitter), etc. I think I'm gonna try to at least do a day trip to the con. If i can find a few people to split the costs with, I may try for a 2 day D*C trip.

With my refund from Sellaband, I pillaged eBay and picked up the Emerald Twilight comics from '94 and rounded out my Blackest Night ring set with the Black Lantern ring.

So I've been a bad wolf and really lapse with keeping up on storylines, so I've taken it upon myself to catch up to Blackest Night as best I can. I'm on the Rage of the Red Lanterns, when, suddenly...

Red Lantern Kitty!

That cat is evil.

Okay, server physically accessed, and it freezes up at the login screen where you hit ctrl+alt+del to log in. OS reinstalled. Same error. Even if left alone, it locks up after 5-10 minutes. Screen goes black, system looks to be unresponsive.

Anyone have any ideas as to what the Hell is going on? And, more importantly, any idea how to freakin' fix it? Windows Server 2003 Enterprise.

Apparently, the file server here in the house downloaded and installed an update from MS sometime recently and rebooted. Sometimes, it'll respond to pings when I ping by IP address and sometimes when I ping by its name. Unfortunately, pinging by name brings up an IP address nowhere near correct ( vs. (the correct IP)). Remote Desktop doesn't want to connect to it. Rebooting doesn't help at all. I'm hoping it's not totally hosed. I'll have to find a monitor, keyboard, and mouse for it tomorrow and check it then. Luckily, all the important data is on seperate drives from the OS/applications.

Any ideas on how to get the bastard to respond to Remote Desktop without going through all the hassle of pulling it out, relocating it, and connecting a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to it? It's running Windows Server 2003.

If it is hosed, I may switch the main OS to CentOS and run Server 2003 in a VM.

Since my original plans were wrecked (and I'd already pre-registered as a sponsor), I scraped up a few bucks and hit it up Friday only. Surprised a few by showing up unannounced like that. It seemed like the con was taking longer than usual to ramp up. Unfortunately, I had to leave right as it was starting to feel exciting. Apparently, Freddie Mercury, the Joker, and The Doctor (10th) were chilling around the con. Didn't bother with pics this time.

And the EPA estimate for my car's fuel useage is off. They say 25mpg highway, but I got more like 30-31mpg highway, which was a nice little bump. The fuel gauge is also off, but in a good way. It seems to show 1/8th tank less than what's actually in it.

I accidently all the way to FWA 2010

Who's ready for Friday to get here already?

I also picked up Justice League: The New Frontier on DVD. Yeah, kinda behind on that, but meh. Always nice to see Hal in action.

A few weeks ago, I picked up Grandville. I just finished it tonight, mostly due to me putting it in my backpack and forgetting about it for a while. Anthropomorphic animals in a Victorian steampunk alternate history with a badass badger detective.

I'm slowly finding all the little things wrong with my Taurus. Somehow, the fuse for the lighter disappeared, so I get to put that in when the weather dries up. I also need to get the door ajar sensor fixed, as it always says the door's open, which also means I had to shut off the internal light, so it's kinda dark when I get in it at night. I think it needs a tune up/spark plugs replaced. After my brother started claiming it was formerly owned by some governmental agency due to it having a spot on the trunk where another antenna used to be mounted, I discovered several places in the dash where holes had been drilled in order to mount something, which kind of supports the theory.

So, yeah

FWA's not happening for me this year. The Chevy Celebrity finally got out of the shop after 3 friggin' weeks...and the wipers still don't work nor is it idling properly. I paid and came home defeated. My grandparents have been letting me use their car, and mine having not functioned properly since December finally upset my grandma, and we ended up car shopping. She loaned me a bit of money, and I'm now the owner of a '99 Ford Taurus. My brother gets the Celebrity whenever he gets his license and can afford to get it fixed.

Sometime today, my signed Night of the Living Kev Inaction Figure should arrive via USPS.

I couldn't resist temptation of that magnitude anymore and had to use the damn Admiral Ackbar memes, which means I needed an Admiral Ackbar figure. A quick search of eBay later, and I acquired an original Kenner Admiral Ackbar, no package and no accessories.

It's a trap!

Let's see

Like I mentioned here, I did the final push and got everything but search functionality in my action figure tracker software. If I'm stuck doing crap like updates/OS installations for the city schools again on Monday, I'll probably get the search working. After that, it'll be a matter of installing Visual Studio on a 32-bit OS so it'll compile a 32 bit executable and letting others tear into it. I find it odd that there's not an immediately visible option to have VS compile for 32 bit when it's installed on a 64 bit OS.

The ENA filtering crap on the city schools' network is a real pain in the ass. I can't even get to Gmail. It's hard to kill time while waiting for 11 million updates to download if I'm limited to, like, Slashdot.
