If it's got balls or wheels or, apparently, computer chips, it's gonna give you grief.

My computer shit the bed. Again. I finally figured out it's the NVIDIA driver update. I went to restart after a standard Windows update and LO. Fucker wouldn't go back on. BSoD, etc. Not starting in safe mode, a bunch of other shit. I tried booting from the disc, nada. Annoying. Of course, Gabe looks at it and turns it on and it's like "Oh Master, would you like me to fix myself? Click OK!"


At least it's fixed.

Also, my car was dropped off at Aamco Monday night, so Tuesday I call at 2:30 and they're like "...oh, right. Altima." DUDE!

So I didn't go to work Wednesday cause they were fiddling with it. Turns out it was done Wednesday night, but NO ONE CALLED. But the guy at the desk thought he had TWO different conversations with me that never occurred and I have the phone records to prove it.

Anyrate, they were all "we know you want that $400 brake job done, but we are TERRIFIED if you don't fix this $260 axle issue. SCREW YOUR BRAKES."

When the mechanic is all about screwing the expensive fix in favor of a cheap one, you find money for both.

So $700 later, the car is fixed. I am adding that $120 onto the tab I owe Andrew, cause I had to borrow some cash. I paid ALL in cash. $80 in singles, about $120 in $5's and $10's and the rest were $20s. Heh. I could have paid the whole thing on my own, but I can't remember when my car insurance comes out, and I get paid tomorrow, but prolly won't get to the bank till Saturday so I didn't want to fuck up and bounce anything. So it's nice to know I am not destitute. And? Being able to pay for things is SO FUCKING COOL. I missed the ability.

Tomorrow is work at noon. Z is gonna drop on by around 3:30/4. I'm hoping tomorrow is an early Friday. I don't know if that'll happen, but I'd like some quality time with mah Z. I don't have work till like, 4 or 5 on Saturday so that's good. Then I'm off like, 8 or 9 then. So we has times. :)

I should update about Dominos a bit more. Let me tell you. I really like this stupid job. NO STRESS. Sometimes the customers get salty, but Dominos is one of those places that's like "Oh, hey. THE CUSTOMER ISN'T ALWAYS RIGHT!!!" And that is fucking nice. My boss, Reva, is a doll face. Her husband, Ron, is a driver there, and he's a doll. The rest of my managers are cool for the most part, and the rest of us drivers are ball busters and we have fun.

It works out to roughly $13 to $18 an hour depending on the day. I get $6.50 an hour, which is nice. I usually get at least $11 an hour in tips. Most people are decent tippers. Some are assholes. BTW, if you stiff your driver, it makes us SAD DAMMIT! Also. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PEOPLE, use reflective numbers on your house. A light ABOVE your house number might as well not exist. You will get your food a LOT faster if your number is like, ya know. Visible. Tips from a driver. *sage nod*

Did I mention Andrew got me a Color Nook for Christmas? Yeah, he spent far too much on me. So I am currently reading Bram Stoker's "Dracula" on it which is AWESOME cause if there's a footnote or a "hey, this is what that phrase means" I can just click the hyper link, it shows me and I go "Oh, that's what that means" and tap it again and I'm back to my page. WHICH MAKES IT SO MUCH EASIER TO READ.

Ahh. The little things.

There's an update for the new year. Woooooo.

I just did it and it works. So now I don't have to worry about accidentally clicking something. Since I'm a spaz. And sometimes, things happen.

Snagged from [ profile] drgaellon

Thanks to [ profile] midniterose, here is how to stop the crossposting of comments/entries from LJ to sites like Facebook:

There is a way to disable everything. Here is what you have to do:

1. Go to your "Journal" menu, and select "Journal Style"
2. To the right, you'll see what theme you're using, with a link stating "Customize Your Theme". Click that link.
3. Scroll down a little ways, and you'll see that on the left side of your screen, you have multiple options to modify your theme. Click on the "Custom CSS" link, and it should load the options for doing Custom CSS.
4. From here, all you have to do is go to the "Custom Stylesheet", and put the following line at the bottom.

.b-repost-item {display:none}

once you have it pasted in there, save changes.

Feel free to PASS THIS ON!!

ETA: This prevents the "repost to FB/Twitter" ticky boxes from being displayed when someone comments on one of your posts. It seems to work, UNLESS the person is viewing your page in their own journal style, in which case it might not work.

ETA2: Inserting the code below in your custom CSS box reportedly works for more kinds of journal styles, including custom ones (this courtesy of [ profile] xnguard) (NB this one did not work for me):

.b-repost-item, FORM#qrform > TABLE[style="border: 1px solid black;"]:last-child TD[style="vertical-align: top; text-align: right;"]:first-child { display: none !important; }
synnoveaevael: (LJ - We know drama)
Even though everyone on my list seems to be on the same page.

Please, do not cross post any comments.

I'm not going to do it to anyone else.

This is one of LJ's dumber "trying to fit in" ideas.

So my laptop doesn't like .avi videos.


I can play MPEGs & other files, but with .avi, I get all sound and no audio.

I once had a similar problem on my old computer, but I'm running a NVIDIA GEForce GTX 260M video card, and alas. It does not have the same control center.

I would think it would be the same issue, some setting in the video card, but I'm finding not a lot of help online. Gr.

That and the MPEGs are working. Which just confuses me.

All my drivers SEEM up to date. I don't know.

If anyone has any assistance, I'd appreciate it.

I'm exhausted.

Gabe's super website for future reference.

I hate that my desktop takes 12 or 13 tries to start up.

What I REALLY hate is that I got it on the 2nd attempt before and a Windows update wanted it to restart.

And it's been an hour and a half since.

And it's still not up.


It "looks" like it's on. Everything is spinning and lit up and active. But it is really full of the fail.

So fucking annoying.

I was gonna queue something on Netflix or Hulu to watch through the teevee on it, but ya know. It's bitchie. So Interview with the Vampire started. Again. Cause I just watched it on DVD. The shit is damn near over.

So I stupidly updated to Yahoo's new webpage.

I guess some of their coding is FUCKED UP, because since then I haven't been able to access my account. I apologize if you're trying to reach me via email (Sara) but my email hates me.

Best Buy totally couldn't fix my laptop. Shocker.

After a month, they were all "oh, pick one out of equal or lesser value. If it's more, pay the difference."

I just wanted the same fucking laptop. How hard is that. The spark made it go fast.

Well, they didn't have it.

They had an ugly $100 more version of it and I was like. Eh. For a lil' more, I could get something that made me salivate.


I did.

Cause I'm smrt like that.

ANNNDDD service plan has been purchased. Accidents happen. And to me? A lot apparently.

Off to pick her up now!!! She bein' optimized.

I should have been back in Jersey yesterday, for D&D last night, alas. Madre Naturaleza had other plans for us.

I have not seen a wall of water quite like the one Z & I got stuck in on the way home. It was epic. I would have taken pictures, if I was not busy SHITTING MYSELF. I am not a nervous driver by *any* stretch, but WHOA. U-turn like a mo' fo'. Z snaps this to our left on the way back INTO Frederick.

OH YES. It was neat looking though. Ya know. Once I didn't have to try and struggle to see my front end. BTW did I mention I had a SHIT TON of work done to my car? Yeah. Heart attack. All new struts, exhaust reattached, new front brakes, new front rotors (whoopsies), alignment and other piddly shit that seemed to cost $79.95 to do. It all NEEDED to be done, and I really can't complain too hard seeing as my car has not given me much shit about being my car. This is the first major upkeep I've done to it. And the mechanic had it done in HOURS. So I am not bitching. Huzzah to him. But *CRIE* to my bank account. What was FUN about that shit??? My debit card got declined. Twice. Then my check got declined. I panicked, went and checked my online status, and it was fine. NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED. More than plenty to cover it. I don't fucking know.

Where was I? Oh. Right.

So we ate some, then went to the Haven, where Andrew was holding down the fort all by his lonesome. Taught Z how to play Catan. She nearly schooled us. Friggin' beginners. Of course Andrew won. At some point Ryan showed up, and we all ordered Outback. Got fatter. Went home, and it was goot sleeps.

Woke up, putzed about, and then bounced. Got to Z's in good time, and then drove her to get her car fixed. She drove over a screw at some point. I don't recommend that, btw. Watched the shenanigans as that was attempted to be plugged, and then went back to her house for a bit.

Eventually got off my lazy ass, came home (and as I took my bags out, some old man was heckling me for my bag having) (OH! where Jared has EXORCISED the kitchen, w00t!) and found more snow in the goddamned frost free fridge. *twitch* I just de-snowed that thing!!! Anyrate, I reanimated my computer somehow, MARKED THE CORDS THIS TIME, and saw Andrew'd sent me a picture of his sisters.

You see, they're both preggers, Sarah is due September 10th, and Margaret is due November 10th. I am retardedly excited about this event. I have met both of them ONCE. And Margaret is moving to Chicago :(. She is ittie bittie. Andrew said she's my height. Lies. She is small. Sarah's still in Brooklyn though. I should make him visit her more often. *glares at boy*

THEN cause my ovaries weren't squeeing enough, I got to see more photographic evidence of Miss Anya Li, Chu & Cara's brandie new bebe. *DIES OF CUTE*

Where was I? Oh yes. After these squeefests, I showered, and threw myself BACK into the car (on the way there, I was stopped so some girl could look at my tattoo) and then drove to De, Danny & JD's grandmother's wake (NOT Bokka, sorry for the panic). Where Danny, JD, Jaime & I entertained each other with stories to block out the somberness of it all.

At the end, I came home. Where I am doing the chattie chat thing with some peeps. Woo.

Tomorrow, I am off to parts of Jersey of the northern variety, and then... I have no idea. Maybe some WoW. Mm... WoW.

That was speshul.

My laptop didn't like. SHUT DOWN when I put'er in the case.

So when I pulled her out of her VERY fitting case, she was MOLTEN LAVA HOT. Like, I am glad I pulled her out onto a table or I would have dropped her, hot.

She was rockin' the blue screen of death. *big sad face*

But then I put her in front of a fan. And she was fine a minute later.

No lasting issues.

Now I'm gonna be paranoid.

In other news, of more paranoia, I called unemployment earlier today. Turns out I had to call next week, so now I'm getting a check issued for half the amount.


So I think I'm gonna call Monday, get the other half, then continue on my every other week schedule. Does that work?

I'm gonna see if there's anything useful on the site.

Does anyone else have issues commenting to someone's LJ in Firefox? I can't seem to post picture or videos in comments. Even mine!

Anyone know what the deal is? I get this error message:

One or more errors occurred processing your request. Please go back, correct the necessary information, and submit your data again.

* Comment not posted: POST required, or missing parameter.

But if I copy & paste the SAME thing into IE, it works fine. I never had this issue before. Anyone know what gives?

Thank you VERY much Ryan!!!

He just solved an issue, while drunk and half asleep, that I had not been able to fix for weeks.


My Google-fu does fail.


Now, I can watch BSG.


Although, in my annoyance, I chewed off 7 finger nails. Arg. One is SO gone. I haven't done THAT since high school. Joy.

Here I be, at Rich & Leslie's. (yay for rhymes)

Rich figured out that my old computer done died. Apparently when I defragged my harddrive, my computer ate a file. A very important file. The one that tells your puter how to read your partitioned drive. So all my computer sees is code. Lots and lots of code.

I am sad, for I have many a memory on that computer that I can't get now. But this is life. I don't have him doing anything with it right now cause maybe one day I will find someone that goes "oh, I know how to fix that!".

Thankfully, Jim let me keep the gaming computer (which was his) so I have a computer. And thankfully Andrew gave me a back up drive (sadly, the day after I requested such a thing, my computer crapped out, such is my life) so I can back up my muzak and peektures.

My other drive is otay. Which was my lifeblood. I would have WEPT if that wasn't able to be salvaged. Since I had two drives, life is okay.

In other news, I had a blastie blast at Cheeseburger in Paradise, even if I didn't karaoke. Wee.

Rich is going through all my pictures now. He is amused. *grins*

ETA: Crap. I just realized all my webcam pix from days of YORE were on there. *sigh* And here I thought I was just losing lots of precious text. *grumble*

1. Ammre comes over. YAAAY.

2. Fridge eventually gets here. UGH. It's an ugly fridge, and it's even uglier inside. Why do I need a fridge? Cause our freezer went DENIED. Bonus, I found every cat toy I've ever had ever. Jesus.

3. Under my fridge was enough dust to create a colony of rabid dust mammoths. Disgusting. So my dust allergies have been BOOTING MY ASS TO SHAME. *sigh*

4. My computer hath taken a shit. I am going to bring it to Rich on Saturday. Prayer. I've done everything suggested by y'all. It SHOULD have worked. Life is unfair.

5. Ammre took me to Ruby Tuesdays. I am full. I have peed a lot.

6. That is all.

Remember last night how I said how much it would fucking SUCK if I couldn't use my main computer???


I came out here to use it and I moved my mouse and it got STUCK on a screen saver picture. So I don't know if anyone IM'ed me or what.

So I waited about 10 minutes. NOTHING. Fine. I restart.


It's telling me it can't find the STANDARD SYSTEM FILE. Just put in the Windows OS disc.

No problem. I have that.

It's not recognizing it's in there. I restarted it with the disc in there. I turned it off, I put the disc in after turning it back on. I've done like, everything.

And the disc is readable. My gaming computer (this one) sees it just fine.

I can't get to ANY screen. ANY OF THEM. I get a Dell start up screen then the error message of doom.



This is the error message:

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Set up using the original set up CD Rom.

Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.

But, uh, it never lets me get to a screen. doesn't even *start* the disc running.

:( :(

How do I run a disc in DOS? Better yet, how do I get to the fucking DOS screen? I don't fucking remember. I miss DOS. *sigh*

The *only* thing I did different last night was defrag it. And I HARDLY see how that's gonna fuck with it's world.

So I was on my way to the doctor's. I looked outside and said "Self. It is barely snowing. But you know people are fucking mongoloids. Let's give us extra time for this 10 to 15 minute trip." and I said to myself "Good, idea. God we're smart."

So I left at 5:55 for my 6:20 doctor's appt.

Going up the hill wasn't so bad. I was like, yay. Then, I got onto Prospect.

And sat there.

Mind you, I am supposed to be on this road for like, two miles? Something like that.

My spedometer never left the 0. If I moved forward it was cause I could finally take my foot off the brake.

It was the kind of traffic where you KNOW at the end of it there is an epic fucking accident and you hope no one is dead.

I still have no idea what happened. Cause I called my doctor's office when I was 20 minutes late (Yes, I had been "driving" for about 45 minutes) and I found out that people were wandering in and not calling and they were a half hour late or so. Fuck that. And I also found out that Dr. Nossa had some INSANE emergency surgery he had to do, so he probably wouldn't be able to get to me.

GRRR! So I am rescheduled for Thursday at 1:40, which I *REAALLLY* didn't want to do for several reasons, but I also didn't want to wait till the middle of January. Balls.

So annoyed.

I'm going to see if I can't figure out what the fuck was up with the traffic.

Oh, and I finally got an LJ notification and ONE email. And I'm starting to think the emails I sent out earlier didn't go through.

I haven't even gotten spam.

What the fuck is going on with my computer?

On my non gaming computer, I can't seem to get Yahoo mail to, uh. Show my mail.

I can on the gaming one.

At first I thought it was Mozilla being a whore, but Flock and IE are having issues to.

WTS, mate?

I restarted Firefox 3 times, restarted my computer twice, and I just don't get it!

Hm. It's also not showing the folders drop down menu. What the hell is that??

ETA: Now? It's fine. Weird.
